Have You Played… King Arthur’s Gold?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. It’s unfortunate that King Arthur’s Gold looks like Terraria, Starbound and the rest of that ilk. Because it is absolutely nothing like those games.

But when I played it last week, Ace of Spades put me in…

Jagex, the UK-based studio responsible for the hugely successful RuneScape, have glued trumpets to their lips and heralded the announcement of their next game: Ace Of Spades. What's that? You recognise a game by that name? Gosh, you're a keen-eyed one. Indeed, a year and a half ago Quintin spotted the indie Minecraftish WWI multiplayer, and insisted that you play it. It seems Jagex took…

10 Reasons You Need To Play Ace Of Spades

Have I got your attention? Then I'll begin. Ace of Spades is a freeware, multiplayer Minecraft-alike that takes Minecraft's cuboid building mechanics and drapes a World War 1 setting on top of it, with the end result being a huge, immersive, dynamic game of capture the flag. On the one hand, you've got two teams of sixteen exchanging rifle fire and grenades, trying to push…
