I’ve been pretty quite on the blog with updates. I’ve been busy and with the Easter holiday just past I haven’t been able to write all that much lately. I have been playing a lot though. It’s been a long while since I’ve done a review round up but lets take a quick look at Box Boy, Never Alone, Woah Dave and Pokemon Shuffle.
Over the past few years there has been an increase of retro-style games emerging reviving old, long forgotten genres. 1001 Spikes is one of the games. Originally released in 2011 on XBLA, an enhanced version of the game has been re-released on multiple platforms. Does this tribute stand amongst indie and 8-bit greats or is it better leaving this in a pit with 1001 spikes?
Ni no Kuni is a collaboration with Level 5 Inc. (Professor Layton) and Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away), one of the most famous Japanese animation studios. Originally a DS title then on the PS3 in Japan, Ni no Kuni has finally been localized to the NA and PAL regions. With a game based around a young protagonist in a world of magic is Ni no Kuni banking on the name of Studio Ghibli or do they have something magical.
