NaissanceE: a scary space station without any necromorphs

Honestly, this might be more scary than an average survival horror game. It is not even clear if NaissanceE is supposed to be a frightening experience, and that just makes it seem even scarier. At least, that is my reaction ...

Murdered: Soul Suspect also takes its dumb fedora to PS4

Yesterday we learned Murdered: Soul Suspect would come out on Xbox One in addition to PC, 360, and PS3. This upset some of you who like fedoras. Unsurprisingly, this latest story trailer shows the game is also slated for PS4...

Can you work out the Glitchspace?

I really like the idea of glitches as a form of artistic exprestion, especially in videogames. Whether it's the opening of Fez or the memory glitches in Remember Me, there's something about our supposedly perfect digital uni...

10000000 creator's new game is You Must Build a Boat

At this point, so many match-three puzzle games exist that it is easy to see a new one and immediately write it off without a second thought. Fortunately, 10000000 did enough new stuff with the genre that it gathered a decent...

Clobbr is a game where you drop rocks on a cat

The developers of Clobbr sent me a code for the game on iOS, and I was shocked by what I saw. The game is reminiscent of Chu Chu Rocket in a couple of ways. Both games are about protecting mice from an orange cat, and both&n...

Don't look directly at it: Glass plays with lasers

As a scientist, it is sometimes my job to shine lasers at objects, scribble nonsense down on a clipboard, and stroke the part of my chin where a beard would be if I could grow one. "Indeed," I muse to myself, "That is the la...

The first Puzzle Quest is $0.99 on Steam right now

I made it through the Puzzle Quest craze relatively unscathed, but others weren't so lucky. (Or, maybe they were, depending on your outlook.) If it's sheer hours of entertainment per dollar spent you're concerned with, this 4...

Review: Castle Doombad photo
Review: Castle Doombad
by Chris Carter

On a daily basis we get notices for a host of mobile game launches -- usually the week of. Most of them are unassuming, and since there are so many titles, it's tough to sift through the pile and find the real gems that are worth covering.

When Destructoid CEO Hamza Aziz sent Castle Doombad across my desk, even with the Adult Swim name, I wasn't drawn to it. Six hours later I lost track of time -- it was 2AM, and I had been playing Castle Doombad nonstop.

This is a gem, folks.
