Darts Up review

Does it hit the bullseye?

I have never played darts in my life. Sure, I'd seen it played in pubs and on television, but I had no idea what the rules were, which part of the board did what.. I was about as casual as you can get when it comes to darts. But last year, developer EnjoyUp released Darts Up 3D on 3DS. It was a simple,... read more

Ice Cream Surfer review

A melted experience

Ice Cream Surfer is a horizontal scrolling shoot 'em up from the days of old. It tries to capture the classic arcade gameplay of titles such as Gradius while adding its own personal touch, but unfortunately what we end up with is a rather lackluster attempt. The first thing you'll notice are the graphics;... read more
