A Day with Dinosaur Polo Club

PMG reviewer Di recently covered the little success of Kiwi-made indie game Mini Metro. She spent many hours staring at transit maps, dreaming of geometric shapes and brainstorming new strategies to solve cities’ commuter problems. After some more hours, Di started wondering about the intriguing logo ...

The Tower of Egbert

Poor Egbert. He’s a tiny homeless sorcerer who dreams of having a lofty tower. No humble single-storey cottages for this little guy. Fortunately, he’s not bothered that, while I’m quite happy to help him, I’m also a person who builds things quite poorly. So poorly in fact that the Le...

Bacon: Enter the Hanger Zone

I’m a vegetarian. So putting bacon on everything is a strange experience for me. And I mean…everything. Cookbooks, inspirational quotes, money, hairdryers, Kevin Bacon…the list goes on. Little indie company Kamibox is responsible for bringing us such a weird and oddly-satisfying experience. Baco...

Zero Sum: Making Math Fun. And Weird.

If you love numbers and bad B-movies, there’s no finer candidate for your game library than Zero Sum. Actually, I take that back. You don’t even have to like numbers. I am a prime example of this. Can’t remember own age? Check. Uses fingers and toes to count stuff? Check. Thinks the number...

Survisland – The hardest survival game in 2018, they say

Imagine.. You wake up lying on a beach on a deserted island. All you have is a pair of jeans and a tshirt. Fortunately the sun is shining, but you see dark clouds looming. You’re hungry and night is approaching. You check your vitals, everything seems okay, but you’re tired. You see a coconut pa...

Donut County: It’s Full of Holes (Good Ones)

If Donut County was an art piece, it would probably be something like Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans. It’s kitschy, offbeat, feels familiar and yet has enough surprise moments that either lead to a “wtf” or a “lol”. Looking up trailers of what Donut County is ab...

5 Things You Can Do in Spider-Man!

If you haven’t yet grabbed yourself a copy of Spider-Man then it’s probably because you don’t own a PS4, and for that I will bestow you with a moment of silence. … If you do, however, own the only platform you can play this amazing game on and have not managed to get your hands on it...

Great

Valleys Between

This debut game from indie developer Little Lost Fox is in danger of turning me into a pre-teen girl. Let’s just say that unlocking cute animals and getting upgrades for them is embarrassingly right up my alley. But even if you’re not the kind of person who squees at pretty things, please don’t ...

Hungry Dragon: Eating Humans is Fun!

Look, we all do it! You do it, I do it, she does it, and even he does it, yes… even him. Using your smartphone on the toilet is almost certainly unhygienic – but you’ve got to do something to pass the time. Unfortunately, the new app game: Hungry Dragons has led to 1 or 2 people believing I may be sick… we ...

Marvel’s Spider-Man

Subwords: Pass Me the Beer and Pretzels, Please

My husband asks me if “Taft” is actually a legit American president. I shrug and head for Wikipedia. Several seconds later, we learn that William Howard Taft was the 27th President of the United States. And that his name is linked with “fattest presidents” and “bathtub”. ...
