A cowboy stealth action game? You had me at ‘cowboy stealth action’.  Desperados 3 is the follow up to, err, Desperados 2 but it’s a prequel, so you don’t need to...

Review: Liberated

Liberated is told as a graphic novel, with panels that come to life at certain points which is where you play the game. It’s a cool effect and when I heard about...

Review: Fly Punch Boom

I’m not really sure how to begin to explain what this game is like. Imagine an anime fight. If you haven’t seen one, it’s a lot of colours, over-exaggerated characters, explosions, disproportionate...
