Scram Kitty and His Buddy on Rails review

Scram Kitty and His Buddy on Rails review

Diamond in the rough

Scram Kitty and His Buddy on Rails is a platforming rail-shooter by Dakko Dakko, a small developer based in South Wales, UK.

Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D review

It's a high score galore!

One thing I miss about being young with saved up pocket money is spending it on arcade games. It's a magical experience as a child, going to the arcades and blasting coins out on games like Time Crisis.

Not only are they different from the typical platformer of the NES days in mechanics, it's a different experience entirely and one that we weren't incredibly familiar, nor comfortable with. RPGs really started to take off much later, perhaps even generations later, but... read more
