Titan Attacks! Review

Titan Invaders

One look at Titan Attacks! and you’ll be instantly reminded of Space Invaders. There’s no point in hiding it, Titan Attacks! is heavily inspired by the 1978 arcade classic but don’t be disappointed. Space Invaders was a classic for a reason and while I doubt Titan Attacks! will be remembered with the same reverence, it won’t be laughed at either. Continue reading Titan Attacks! Review

MONG’s Best of 2014 Award Winners – Part One

2014 was certainly a wild year for gaming.

The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One both set record sales for a console’s first year on the market, reassuring gamers and “analysts” everywhere that console gaming is here to stay.  Microsoft decided to release a Kinect-less Xbox One bundle after saying it would never happen.  The PlayStation 4 failed to release any major blockbuster first party games during the holiday season, while the Xbox One released a hit new IP in Sunset Overdrive.

We saw the rise and fall of mobile games like Flappy Bird.  Games like Titanfall, Watch Dogs, and Destiny were all finally released only to be ripped apart by gamers with too much hype.  While less hyped games like Wolfenstein: The New Order, Valiant Hearts: The Great War, and The Evil Within managed to blow everyone away.  We were flooded with “HD remakes” of games – some that we have wanted for a long time, and some that were just released a year ago on last generation consoles.

All of that combined to make this years Best of 2014 Awards a really fun one. So, without further ado, here are the first set of winners:

The Swapper Review

This review has been updated to also reflect the Wii U release of The Swapper.


 CHANGING MINDS ON SPACE-PUZZLERS

It had only been a week since my review of Constant C–a sci-fi platform puzzler with an overarching story about the mass death of a space station–when I was tasked with reviewing The Swapper. Avid readers of this site will know that Constant C is the lowest reviewed game on our website to date. Let’s just say I wasn’t thrilled to be playing another “space puzzle” so soon. After ten minutes of playing The Swapper, my mind had been changed. After thirty minutes, I was hooked by the captivating story. By the end, I had questioned all of my in-game decisions and immediately dived back in. The Swapper is a breath of fresh air in an otherwise stale genre and will undoubtedly change the minds of non-believers. Continue reading The Swapper Review

Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones Review

NOT YOUR AVERAGE CLONE

Indie developer Curve Digital has made a name for itself in the gaming community. They have put together quite an impressive portfolio of games that includes Velocity Ultra, Thomas Was Alone, and The Swapper. After the critical triumph of their stealth puzzle platformer, Stealth Inc.: A Clone In the Dark, Curve Digital is looking to clone its quality in the first sequel the studio has made (see what I did there?). With all the success that Curve has, it would be blasphemous for Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones not to follow suit. Continue reading Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones Review
