Bleed (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

Bleed is a somewhat unique run and gun shooter platformer featuring retro graphics and sensibilities.  The story is a little unclear.  I think you’re a girl who is either gunning to be the number one video game hero or she’s just imaging it all (as you see her on the start screen writing a story at her desk and you select stages off a list that she’s writing).  But once you start playing, it really doesn’t matter as you’ll just be shooting everything that moves in this frantic downloadable game for PS4, Xbox One, and PC (reviewed on PS4 here).

Boost Beast (Switch)

The entire human race has been turned into zombies, and it’s up to a group of animals to save the day.  It may sound like a dark premise, but Boost Beast is actually a very cute match-3 puzzle game.  Oh no, not another review of one of those kinds of games, you might say.  But this one’s a bit different, as it’s available to download on the Nintendo Switch!

Super Phantom Cat 2 (iOS, Google Play)

Super Phantom Cat 2 is a 2-D platformer sequel to a mobile game I reviewed last year.  In the new game, Ari the cat and his little sister Ina are exploring some ruins when they find a giant robot.  A UFO swoops down and captures the robot and Ari’s sister, so now he sets out on a new adventure to save them.  Super Phantom Cat 2 is a free-to-play download for iOS and Google Play, but reviewed on iPad here.

Reader Review: Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma (PS4)

Recently I got a review code for Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma on PS4.  I don’t really know much about the series, and it didn’t really interest me at all, so I thought I’d change things up a bit and have one of my younger brothers, Benjamin Woodham, review the game for me.  He even changed things up a bit more and wrote the Kid Factor first instead of last.  But sometimes it’s good to change things up a bit so we’re going to keep it that way this one time!  Anyway, be sure to click here and check out his review!  –Cary

Graceful Explosion Machine (PS4, Switch, PC)

Graceful Explosion Machine hearkens back to the days of classic arcade shooters like Defender.  Pilot your spacecraft around continuously looping screens as you shoot everything that moves.  When there’s nothing left to shoot, you win and move onto the next level.  The game is available to download on PS4, Switch, and PC, but reviewed on PS4 here.

Slime-san (Switch, PS4, Xbox One, PC)

A giant worm has swallowed poor Slime-san, and now you must help him escape before being digested in this super challenging 2-D platformer.  Very similar to other titles like Super Meat Boy, Slime-san is available to download on Nintendo Switch and PC (later on PS4 and Xbox One), but reviewed on Switch here.

Namco Museum Switch Virtual Tour

Recently I reviewed Namco Museum on Nintendo Switch.  So now I thought I’d go over each of the games in this arcade classics collection in more detail.  So welcome to the Namco Museum!  My name is Cary and I’ll be your tour guide today on this virtual tour!  There is no smoking and please stay with the group!

Namco Museum (Switch)

One of the best and most well-known arcade game makers of the 80’s and 90’s is Namco.  They’re responsible for classics like Pac-Man, Galaga, Dig Dug, and many more, and that’s one of the reasons why they’re my favorite video game company. I’m always excited when they come out with a new Namco Museum collection of old arcade games, and now there’s one on the Nintendo Switch you can download!

Adventure Time Run: The Ooo Expedition (iOS, Android)

Adventure Time is one of Cartoon Network’s most popular animated programs (is it even still on?), and out of all the cartoon licensed games out there, I think I’ve reviewed more Adventure Time ones than any other in the 20 plus years I’ve been doing this!  Many of these titles imitate other genres of games, like point and click adventures, card games, 2-D platformers, top-down Zelda-like quests, and more!  And some, especially on tablets, are just spinoffs of existing games, like Adventure Time Ski Safari.  And now the show is getting the Temple Run treatment.  Adventure Time Run is available to download free-to-play on iOS and Android devices (reviewed on iPad here).
