Anomaly: Warzone Earth Review
Anomaly: Warzone Earth takes the concept of tower defense and flips it upside down, putting the player in charge of the offensive force. Does it have what it takes to carve out a niche in this saturated genre?

Defenders of Ardania Review
The Tower Defense genre is perhaps one of the more saturated in gaming at the moment. Because of this, if a game wants to stand out from the rest of the pack, it has to do something a little different. Defenders of Ardania does this by attempting something so simple that it’s frankly amazing it hasn’t caught on more: it gives you the chance to attack your enemy.

Gotham City Impostors Review
Gotham City Impostors is possibly the least plausible Batman game that could have been imagined by a developer, aside from perhaps a kart-racing or sports game. Developing a multiplayer shooter in a universe with a lead character who does all he can to avoid gunplay is a strange design choice at best, and although the reasoning behind the set-up is briefly explained (something to do with brainwashing and gang-related violence), it still feels a little wrong dressing up as Batman and blasting away at thugs.

Puddle Review
Puddle, a science-infused puzzle game released on PSN and Xbox Live, doesn’t just use water as a backdrop; it instead focuses on it as a main character. Throughout the course of Puddle you will be tasked with guiding liquid through various tracks, with the objective of saving enough liquid to meet the quota come level’s end. It sounds easy, but with the amount of obstacles placed in your path, you’ll quickly come to realise the importance of careful movement, strategy and accurate timing.

Shank 2 Review
Shank 2 is a tale of revenge with Shank, our protagonist, fighting against the evil General Magnus and his militia with the objective of rescuing the head of the orphanage in which Shank grew up. Does KLEI Entertainment’s sequel offer up enough violence for the bloodthirsty hordes, or would it be better to suffer dismemberment than play this game?

Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath Review
EA Games and development team Just Add Water have allowed me the chance to atone for past mistakes by releasing an HD ‘upgrade’ of the game, which is available for download on PSN. Was it worth my trip back in time to once-again experience this overlooked adventure, or should I have left it in the past where it belongs?

Set in a Tim Burton-esque world, our titular character has to fight her way through hordes of aggravated animals with the objective of finding out what has happened to the Tree of Knowledge. With her dreams haunted by images of a mysterious evil man, should you help Scarygirl on her adventure, or run far away and cower in a corner?

Save Yammi! Review
Bulkypix continues its offensive on the iOS casual games market once again with the release of Save Yammi!, where players are tasked with keeping a friendly-looking monster satisfied by feeding it cookies over a selection of various US states. Confused yet? Don’t be, as the story is pretty much non-existent, and the game consists instead of a series of physics and timing based puzzles, where you place ropes in various places to smoothly guide the cookie into Yammi’s eager mouth.

What we have here is a rookie helicopter pilot assigned to rescue various targets in hostile war zones, in the guise of a 2D side-scroller/shoot-em-up. Does Choplifter HD carry success away to safety, or crash and become a prisoner of horrible gaming?

NBA Jam On Fire Edition Review
With physics-defying dunks, players with oversized heads, and the ability to set people on fire, the NBA Jam series is not an authentic take on anything. It is, however, a hell of a lot of fun, especially with a group of friends. With the cancellation of NBA Elite 11 last year, the previously downloadable-bonus-only NBA Jam quickly became EA Sports’ only basketball title upon its release in November 2010. Luckily for EA, the game received strong reviews and decent sales, and has now returned in the form of NBA Jam: On Fire Edition
