Review: PixelJunk Monsters 2

It feels like it's been ages since Q-Games dabbled in tower defense with the original PixelJunk Monsters. The studio has taken quite a few detours since then, all of which have have been interesting in their own right, but the time has fina...

PixelJunk Monsters 2 has a short but sweet demo on PS4 and PC

Review: Nom Nom Galaxy

You really have to give it to Q-Games. With the notable exception of PixelJunk Shooter 2, it has tried something different with pretty much all of its releases, from slot car races, to tower defense, to music visualizers. Not every gam...
