Review: Doodle Balls – artistic fun?

Doodle balls, a game created by Stubbjax02 yesterday, is in the beta stages–though it is rather difficult to tell! The graphics are superb, and the sounds are indeed brilliantly done, plus the gameplay is rather addicting – even though the only mode available is easy.


GMTV episode 4: detailed analysis

It’s out. Featuring ~22 minutes of content, I was highly impressed by episode 4 of GMTV. Featuring news, reviews and more, this is the most professional episode to date. The show features a completely new look (to go with their new website), which is a huge improvement from the previous one. They have ditched their “retro style”. This time in reviews, Ancient War and Beneton Movie GIF. But that’s not all: it features a new Read more…


GMTV 3 detailed review

…by everybody’s favorite [sic] writer. I have to say, to begin this with, the third episode greatly increased the quality of GMTV compared to the past two episodes. I won’t be jumping into the technical aspects until the end — I’ll focus on the content. The main content in this episode is reviewing the 10 “best games” for YoYo Games’ winter competition. The review system seems to have changed according to the criticism received. During Read more…


I’m Scared!

Earlier this week an invitation appeared in my PM inbox at the GMC asking if I could review “I’m scared!” by JW Productions. I haven’t reviewed many games recently, but figured I would give it a go. The screenshots looked good. The startup screen, menu and game room looked good. And amazingly for a Game Maker game there was actually an interesting story. But then after just a short amount of play time the inevitable Read more…

Review: Arena (Dennis Toney)

As featured in MarkUp July 2007: What they say: Arena is the two-player game where opponents battle within the confines of a random maze. With lots of options and multiple paths to victory, Arena is never the same game twice. This is a great rivalry game where two good friends can sit down and blast away at each other. This is my first original video game. Download (2.5MB) Review: Arena lives upto and exceeds my Read more…


Review: 2p Shooter (Jack Sanders)

Forted

It’s not often that I come across ‘decent’ games at the GMC. There are a lot of good efforts, but most releases leaving me wanting more – in a bad way. The number of games where the focus has all been on one aspect of the game is high. For example games with amazing unique graphics which are wasted on appalling gameplay. Forted, a bunker defence game is an exception to this rule. This game Read more…
