    Review: Chime Sharp

    Six years after the original made its XBLA debut, Chime is back with refined gameplay and a more complete ensemble of features. Unfortunately, a few missed notes prevent the game from maintaining a steady beat. Mechanically, Chime Sharp functions just like the first game. The […]

  • RiptideGP-Renegade

    Review: Riptide GP: Renegade

    Vector Unit’s Riptide GP series has been making waves on mobile devices for years now. Sure, the second game made its way onto Steam, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One last year, but despite being good fun it still very much felt like a ported mobile […]

    Review: Asemblance

    A red flashing light pulses to a loud alarm filling the room with a dark, eerie urgency. The alarm has been tripped as a test to see whether or not you can follow directions. Glowing red, the industrial room is sparse. A computer terminal with one active […]

    Review: Hyperspace Pinball

    We’re big on video game pinball around here, whether it’s the more traditional style of the Zen Pinball/Pinball FX series or something like Rollers of the Realm that fuses pinball gameplay with the mechanics of other genres (in RotR’s case it was RPGs). Add Hyperspace […]
