Have You Played… Ironcast?

I like doing these HYPs. Not just as a break from guides writing, but because it forces me to look at the games gathering dust in my Steam library. It prompts me to load up one of those games again for the first time in perhaps years, and to rediscover the joy of - for example - stomping across Southern England in my gargantuan but…

Jump, Flip And Shoot Without Aiming In Seraph, Out Now

Seraph [official site] is described as an acrobatic shooter "without aiming", which means you can jump, double-jump, wall-jump and otherwise focus on movement while pressing the shoot button causes your bullets to always hit one of the enemies skittering nearby.

Here's wot I think:

It's certainly a handsome game, with a great deal of attention lavished on the world and its characters. There are two commanders available in the build and mechs with various in-built abilities…

Steampunk Puzzle Quest: Ironcast

Just last week I was wailing about the lack of a decent Puzzle Quest successor in my life and, lo, it's as if the Kickstarter gods were listening. Ironcast is Puzzle Quest, with steampunk mechs stomping around Victorian London, fighting for queen and country. Except that's not quite the full story, even though it would probably have been enough to capture my attention. The grid-based…
