The Actraiser Remake Mostly Does Its Quintet Heritage Proud

Platform(s): PC (version played), PS4, Nintendo Switch Genre: Half 2D action game, half god simulator Let's just get this out of the way: on first impression, the 2021 remake of the SNES action game-slash-god-simulator hybrid Actraiser is not a heavenly sight. The pre-rendered graphics just make the look really garish and ugly to look at, with ...

Ranking The Super Mario Games From Worst To Best

The Super Mario titles from Nintendo are arguably the most influential and iconic games around. Anyone who tells you otherwise is probably lying through their teeth. Without the mind of Nintendo designer Shigeru Miyamoto at the helm of these mothership games, there wouldn't be a Nintendo at all in the late 80s and the 90s. In fact, Nintendo and ...

E3 2019: Burned By The Secret of Mana Remake? The Trials of Mana Remake May Fix That

Our resident RPG guru Mr Toffee was disappointed with The Secret of Mana remake last year. It felt very cheaply-made, the added dialogue and story bits did not help elevate the source material, and it somehow made the 1992 original game superior. Based on what we've seen at E3 2019's Treehouse live stream, Square Enix is making amends with the tru...

SoundScape: The Best Mega Man Tracks To Start Off With

So Mega Man 11's music isn't exactly lighting the Mega-world on fire. A shame too, because the Mega Man games boast one of the catchiest 8-bit (and more) soundtracks for a 2D action platformer game filled with theme park setpieces as actual boss levels. Dozens of metal artists and cover bands will always find a way to play tracks like Mega Man 2's ...
