The Walking Dead: All That Remains – Review

Prior to the release of The Walking Dead we weren’t sold on the idea of episodic gaming. The thought of being drip-fed a story over several months seemed alien, but from as early on as the second episode Telltale managed to twist our arm. Each episode was more...

The Walking Dead: No Time Left

The Walking Dead series should be remembered for a number of reasons. It proved that there was still life left in the point and click adventure genre, and managed to convince us that episodic gaming can be a brilliant thing if handled correctly. Perhaps less significantly, we also...

The Walking Dead: Starved for Help

If you missed out on the first part of Telltale’s The Walking Dead story, then you missed one of the best zombie games of recent times. It was an excellent blend of zombie slaughtering and pointing and clicking, demonstrating Telltale’s storytelling skills to their fullest. The best thing...

The Walking Dead: Episode One

Many gamers rejoiced when Telltale Games arrived on the scene, and rightly so – their aim was to rejuvenate the then-dead point and click adventure genre. Their licensed games have received mixed reviews in the past, with their last game – Jurassic Park – critically mauled. There’s no...

Deadly Days

Roguelikes are tricky beasts. They take a certain amount of resilience to take on. With highly randomised elements they can be fun after obtaining items that synergise well, or your YouTube-worthy controller smashing moment as you take that disastrous final hit which ends the run far too soon....

Beyond A Steel Sky

Back in 2003, UK-based Revolution Software was challenged with bringing Broken Sword into the third dimension, aiming to broaden its appeal to the PlayStation 2 generation. It was a task far harder than it may sound – few point ‘n click adventure games had made the jump to...
