Gatling Gears Review

September 13, 2011 Leave a comment

Gatling Gears is a simple third person shooter game. You take the role as Max, an ex-pilot for the Empire. Now when I say pilot I don’t mean planes, you drive a walker. One similar to an AT-ST walker in Star Wars. Yes, you get to control the walker and you have some weapons on board to shoot the bad guys. You have a Gatling gun (left mouse button), cannons (right mouse button), grenades (space bar) and a shock bomb (shift button) which can only be used once every level.

Drakensang: Einen Deutsch MMORPG

August 28, 2011 1 comment

For those of you confused by the title, “Deutsch” means “German”. And so, while the title may be completely grammatically incorrect in actual German I think it gets across what I was trying to say. I realise it’s not a particularly inspired title but then I think it’s unusual enough when you think about it. After all, how many other German video games can you name?

So it would appear that League of Legend’s fame has managed to allow it to sleep around without thinking of the consequences. Now however, after a one time hook-up with the slightly less famous Eve: Online, the consequences of LoL’s lifestyle have come full circle. The resulting love child of the unlikely coupling was the brand new indie game: Stellar Impact. Read more…

Hammerfight: Never Have I Ever… Given up in about 10 seconds flat… *drink*

Okay so maybe I exaggerate a teeny-tiny bit in the title. I swear I gave the final game (well last of the original’s anyway) in the Humble Indie Bundle a good go. Honest, guv!

Created by Kranx productions in Hammerfight you control a tiny, hovering… thing… let’s call it a “ship”. And to this ship your in game character attaches weapons and other less interesting bits and bobs. Okay, the main part of it is that there are weapons on the ship. Melee weapons! The idea is that, using the mouse to fly your ship in circles, you make your weapons swing round the ship, building up momentum and then you try and get the weapons to smash into other ships.

Dead Cyborg: Kicking it Old-School

You wake up in a cryotube in a post-apocalyptic world. You are radiation poisoned, extremely weak and you’re only thought is to get the hell out.

A one-man Indie game (created by one Endre Barath) Dead Cyborg won’t just be one single game but a series of three episodes each which apparently contain 2 to 3 hours of gameplay. Episode 1 is now available for download and so I got it and tried it out. Read more…
