Review: Shred It!

Review: Shred It!

Have you ever found yourself thinking, "I'd sure like to be able to play this free-to-play mobile game on my Xbox One at a premium markup with little to no changes aside from microtransactions being removed?" Me neither, but that is exactly what Shred It! is.   read

Slashy Souls

Namco's Dark Souls mobile spinoff looks like rubbish

Ah, so this is what Bandai Namco trademarked: an endless runner. Some of you were spot on. Slashy Souls is a mobile title made possible in part by GameStop -- a company supposedly "not attempting" to be a publisher -- that will release on A...

 
Tron Run/r review
As far as runners go, Tron Run/r might have it all. In a genre that many scoff at for its general simplicity, this package is hardly stripped-down. In fact, there's no denying that it has significant heft. Before long, i...   read

That Tron runner false starts on Xbox, pushed back two weeks

A new Disney-made Tron game came out today on two of its three scheduled platforms. The cheekily (or annoyingly) named Tron Run/r released as planned on PC and PS4. The Xbox One version suffered a seemingly significant setback, though...

That new Tron game is coming to consoles too

There's a new Tron runner and it's appropriately titled Tron Run/r. There will be no confusion about the contents of this game for it is very obviously a runner in the Tron universe. Easy peasy. What there was some confusion about, ho...

Lost in Harmony

Here's a snippet of that Wyclef Jean song from Lost in Harmony

Yoan Fanise (Valiant Hearts: The Great War) broke from Ubisoft last year to form Digixart Entertainment, and the studio's first game is out on iOS devices today. Lost in Harmony looks like a decent rhythm game/Battletoads bike section, but ...

Biker Mice from Mars game out now

Ah, the '90s. We were much younger back then. Some readers today might not have even been alive or sapient. Let me tell you something about the '90s. There were lots of cartoons. Some of them were good. Only '90s kids could possibly know th...

Team Meat no longer opposed to a Super Meat Boy sequel

Remember back when Vin Diesel wouldn't do sequels and we got xXx: State of the Union starring Ice Cube and the worst Fast and Furious movie? But then Riddick happened and, obviously, Diesel returned to the Fast and Furious franchise to mad ...

Race the Sun

Race the Sun is fantastic, fun, and free today on PC

They say that going solar-powered is a cheap and efficient use of renewable energy. Solar-powered endless runner Race the Sun is the most cost-effective it'll ever be, but for today only. Like the game, it's over when the sun goes dow...

 
Sonic Runners
Hey, Sega actually made a really cool mobile Sonic game...then promptly proceeded to beat it down with layers and layers of microtransactions. Oh Sega, you scamp!   read

EarthNight photo
EarthNight

EarthNight is a game about running on dragons in space

There's a lot of stuff going on in this trailer for EarthNight that I don't fully understand, but it sure looks and sounds cool. The PlayStation 4 and PS Vita (not endless) runner was painted by hand and "made to elevate the [genre] with c...

KFC takes us through the life of Colonel Sanders in a game

Colonel Sanders lived an interesting life. In an attempt to bring him back into the public eye, fast food chain KFC wants to tell the story of his life, though it seems like it might be embellished a bit in the free minigame collection Colo...

Learn why the Color Guardians final boss is so poorly designed

In my review earlier, I wrote a couple of paragraphs talking about how the final boss fight is so poorly designed that it brings the entire experience down. It feels like the developer didn't playtest the fight at all, because if it had, i...

 
Color Guardians review
I put a lot of value in elegance. Solving a math problem in an unconventional way using two steps is inherently cooler than doing it in twenty steps. A single shot from a sniper rifle taking down a faraway target is more impr...   read

Cosmophony review
I had been lulled into a false sense of security. I finished the tutorial and the first level of Cosmophony with a perfect rating in about 15 minutes. "Four more levels of this?" I thought. "Child's play." Cut to an hour and ...   read

Infinity Runner review
Infinite runners have their place in gaming. After Canabalt, a seemingly endless stream of 2D endless runners showed up for a piece of the action. After Temple Run, the same happened for behind-the-back 3D runners. Infinity R...   read

Lara Croft: Relic Run

Lara Croft's in a new mobile runner \_(ツ)_/

Crystal Dynamics has announced a new mobile runner titled Lara Croft: Relic Run. The name's fittingly nebulous. Is Lara running after relics? Or, is the old-school Lara the running relic, a classic character hearkening back to a bygone era ...

 
Jump'N'Shoot Attack
Four Christmases ago, I joined the smartphone brigade when I found an iPhone 4S nestled under the tree. Oh boy! I thought. Now I can grab all those iOS games that people can't shut up about! And for a couple of years, I was a...   read

Runbow for the Wii U still looks amazing, is still nine players

After announcing a metric shit-ton of indie games during GDC week, Nintendo put out a new trailer for Runbow, the upcoming nine-player Wii U action platformer. There are seven modes available, including one that allows a player to act as "...

Stylish endless snowboarder Alto's Adventure now on iPhone and iPad

It's rare that I cover mobile games here but I couldn't let Alto's Adventure slide by me. This is pegged as an "endless snowboarding odyssey" with a one-button trick system and 180 goals to best. Other things worth noting besides the stron...

Combo Queen brings jiggle physics to an SNES aesthetic

It's not that animated breasts are all Combo Queen has going for it. They're just the first thing I noticed clicking around the trailer and ending up on a bouncy idle animation.  The pixel art here is rather lovely, but I don't h...

 
Funk of Titans review
Funk of Titans is not a very fun game. But Brett Makedonski and I had a lot of fun talking about it.   read

Science-themed runner Boson X coming to Steam tomorrow

After hearing about it from iOS users, I was excited late last year when Boson X first came to Android, my mobile platform of choice. A few months later, I finished the six levels included in the Android version and discovered the X Boson....

Super Meat Boy Forever is a runner, Mew-Genics on hold

[Update: Edmund McMillen wrote a blog post to explain that Super Meat Boy Forever uses auto run, but is not an endless runner. So it's more like Bit.Trip Runner than anything. Though there is an endless mode with daily high scores...
