This morning I thought I’d try something different and summarise the best titles available for the Nvidia Shield. First things first though. What actually is the Nvidia Shield? It is essentially a home entertainment system built by Nvidia and powered by Android. You can stream music, play games from the Google Play store and get news, sport and TV. All at your fingertips. It also allows … Continue reading NVIDIA Shield – Best of 2017
The Google Play store has opened pre-registration for Fire Emblem Heroes and Super Mario Run! What this means is that you will get a notification when the game is released. Unfortunately, registering does not grant you any other special privileges which is a bit lame but at least you will know straight away when these two hotly anticipated titles are available for your enjoyment on … Continue reading Pre-Registration for Fire Emblem Heroes & Super Mario Run

You play the character of Ida the Silent Princess and there are 10 chapters … Continue reading Monument Valley
So the guys at PixelPixelStudios got in touch with me recently to see if I’d be up for reviewing their new game Choo Choo. I took them up on the offer and to be honest I’m glad I did. In this game you have to tap to change the tracks to avoid rail blocks and keep your little steam engine going. The concept is quite … Continue reading All Aboard! Next Stop..FUN!
As we enter the last week of January 2017, I look back on it with a touch of horror (you all know what I’m talking about and it isn’t that the recent Global Game Jam has come to an end), but also an overwhelming sense of happiness and enthusiasm for the year to come.
