I am an actor and a writer. I act quite a bit on stage, a little bit on tv and never on tuesdays. I have had some of my writing published and have written for TV and stage. I have been playing games since they begun and don't seem to be getting any better.

SimAirport Review

If you’re a fan of the sim world, where you need to be involved in every decision, micro-managing every detail in every department, then you will have an amazing time with SimAirport. But should you be coming along for your first experience of the genre, this is perhaps not the best game to start with.

Tin Hearts Review

It may take a couple of levels, but you’ll get hooked by Tin Hearts. The world, gameplay ideas, and touching story are all good enough to reel you in.

No One Lives Under the Lighthouse Review

Original and intriguing while at the same time being strange and beguiling, No One Lives Under the Lighthouse works some old-school visuals in the best of ways.

Stranded: Alien Dawn Review

Stranded: Alien Dawn is a very good survival game, one that builds in tower defense and sim-like elements too.

Remorse: The List Review

The price feels too high for what Remorse: The List is offering and aside from some love from old-school horror fans, it may fail to appeal. 

Intruders: Hide and Seek Review

Whilst Intruders: Hide and Seek is not a game that's going to blow the industry away, it's one that you will have a good time with, as you go hiding in the shadows and cowering in cabinets.

Papetura Review

You'll probably be able to complete Papetura in less than two hours, but I like a short experience that is full of quality, rather than something stretched out with fluff. Papetura delivers on this.

Transport Fever 2: Console Edition Review

If you’re a fan of something like Cities: Skylines - Remastered, then Transport Fever 2: Console Edition is going to be for you.

Cions of Vega Review

If you’re a fan of previous Tonguç Bodur games - the likes of The Redress of Mira and Finding the Soul Orb - then Cions of Vega should be on your list.

Fernbus Coach Simulator Review

If you like sim games and love the idea of driving a coach over long routes, then Fernbus Coach Simulator will be for you.

Remoteness Review

Remoteness is in need of some patching and only then may it well be interesting enough to look at it.

Scars Above Review

Scars Above is a challenging game that has a lot to offer, with a price that fits its ambition.

Seven Doors Review

If you’re a puzzle fan then you’ll enjoy Seven Doors.

Rise of Fox Hero Review

Rise of Fox Hero is a good old-fashioned platformer; bright and cheerful, with a good amount of levels and challenge.

The Pathless Review

The Pathless is a pretty great experience that will have you engrossed across its six hours or so running time.

Deliver Us Mars Review

There are times when Deliver Us Mars feels a bit rough around the edges, and the platforming and climbing mechanics don’t work as well as they should. But ultimately this is about the story it tells.

The Redress of Mira Review

I very much like the work of Tonguç Bodur, especially the strange puzzle walking sim experiences. There are bits of that found in The Redress of Mira but other gameplay mechanics let it down somewhat.

Hogwarts Legacy Review

A game for all the ages, there’s a ton of content included so take out your wand, put on your most magical of hats, and go and enjoy the thrills of Hogwarts Legacy. 

Fashion Police Squad Review

Fashion Police Squad will certainly make you think twice about what you are wearing when you leave the house.

Let’s Sing 2023 – Eurovision Hits Song Pack Review

The lack of songs, and the slight safety in terms of their choice means that Let’s Sing 2023 - Eurovision Hits Song Pack doesn’t quite get douze points, but it did have us wishing that we had a backless sequin dress and a revolving stage.
