Echoes of the Jet Car Stunts’ original platform, the iPhone, are obvious. The game runs at 1080p, but the visuals otherwise lackluster. A low-poly car drives through a floating world of single tone boxes, in a bland skybox. Controls are responsive, but they aren’t translated to the controller perfectly. If you attempt to accelerate before a level’s starting countdown is finished you wont move. It ...[Read More]

Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack Review | MOUSE n JOYPAD

Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack Review   Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack is a side scrolling adventure by the Toronto based developer DrinkBox released on Xbox360, PS3, PS Vita and PC. I got my hands on the Xbox 360 version of the game for the review. When I saw the title of the game I simply assumed that I would be spending the next few hours of the game killing mutant blobs, I cou...[Read More]

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood Review | MOUSE n JOYPAD

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood Review   I’m sure you’ve all been faced with the classic problem; You decide to search online for a spell to banish your ball bag of a little brother to another dimension, find one, use it, realise it works, watch as he’s dragged through a portal in your bedroom by a giant hand, realise you’ve made a boo boo, immediately feel guilty, realise you’re a horri...[Read More]

Peggle 2 Review | MOUSE n JOYPAD

Peggle 2 Review   Peggle 2 is the sequel to the 2007 cult classic and aptly-named Peggle. For those uninitiated with the Peggle Universe, it’s essentially the most fun you can have sober and clothed (although neither are pre-requisites for playing, unless there are kids around. In which case, put some knickers on, you monster). In many ways, it’s standard fare in casual puzzle terms and mo...[Read More]

Dustforce Review | MOUSE n JOYPAD

Dustforce Review  Dustforce may sound like a late-night QVC cleaning product, presented by an under-slept, over-paid and frankly misplaced salesperson but in this case, it’s a game. It was originally released for Steam, back in 2012 but has now made its way to Xbox 360, via Xbox Live Arcade. If you’re not familiar with this title, it’s the very epitome of ‘never judge a book by its cove...[Read More]


There was a fair amount of cynicism and sneering when it was announced that Warner Bros. Montreal would be developing Batman: Arkham Origins as it was largely seen as little more than a cash grab while Rocksteady, the developer behind the previous two games, were busy with other projects (which we now know to be Arkham Knight). At the same time however, an announcement that actually got some fans ...[Read More]

Skydive Proximity Flight Review | MOUSE n JOYPAD

Skydive Proximity Flight Review   Over the last few days I have been spending my time hurtling towards the ground at break neck speed, thanks to Skydive Proximity Flight, which is now available on the Xbox Live Store. Skydive Proximity Flight sort of came out of the blue for me, as I knew little about it until we were given the chance to review it. The game which was developed by Gaijin Entertai...[Read More]

International Games System has brought us this physics based game to test our mental agility, along with our patience, often leading to premature baldness as you pull the hair from your head. Constant C starts off deceptively easy with your charac...[Read More]
