Premature Evaluation: Totally Accurate Battle Simulator

Back at PC Zone magazine, where I was born out of an egg, it was my job to take the raw copy submitted by our freelance writers, strip out most of the sexism and veiled threats against politicians, and produce a polished and well structured review that was legally fit for publication. One of the most commonly deleted and cliched introductions to any game about…

Totally Accurate Battle Simulator is now in early access, totally

After yonks giggling at goofy GIFs of snake-firing archers and googly-eyed mammoths in Totally Accurate Battle Simulator, we can ourselves pit weird armies against each other in physics-driven foolish fisticuffs. Totally Accurate Battle Simulator entered early access today and yes, I know today is April Fools' Day but the launch is real. The contents of the game, perhaps less so. Did Vikings really carry longboats…

Meet the flying googly-eyed mammoths and yet more wonders of Totally Accurate Battle Simulator

Five months ago, I took a trip through Wilhelm Nylund's wonderful world of Totally Accurate Battle Simulator GIFs. TABS is a game about assembling stupid googly-eyed armies to fight other stupid googly-eyed armies, and Nylund is in charge of the unit design. The unit design is spectacular. TABS isn't out yet and we don't know when it will be, which sucks because Nylund's racked up…

Meet the snake-firing archers and other wonders of Totally Accurate Battle Simulator

Video games have been simulating battles since 1873, but none of them have the same reverence for historical authenticity as Totally Accurate Battle Simulator. It's an upcoming physicsy fightfest where you pit hordes of samurai, trebuchets and chicken men against mishmashes of rival units - not to be confused with Totally Accurate Battlegrounds, a spinoff battle royale game where you shoot stuff yourself rather than…

Totally Accurate Battlegrounds plans improvements as free period ends

A joke's a joke, and the RPS manifesto is ambivalent about jokes, but now Totally Accurate Battlegrounds is getting serious. The battle royale FPS which started as an April Fool's joke by Clustertruck developers LandFall Games, a Plunkbut with wonky physics, has switched from being free to costing $5, and now LandFall plan to spruce it up a little. Totally Accurate Battlegrounds racked up over…

Totally Accurate Battlegrounds is silly Plunkbat, and free

Take the open-world loot-o-murderhiking of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, add wacky physics, then sprinkle over a few actually quite good ideas, and you might have something like Totally Accurate Battlegrounds, a game I've been enjoying more than I'd expected. It's janky, wait times for a round are huge, and it won't replace Plunkbat in my heart, but it's free its first few days so hey, you may…

Feature: A first-person truck platformer

Have You Played… Clustertruck?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. Clustertruck [official site] is a first-person platformer about leaping across the tops of a pack of moving trucks, like the most ridiculously overblown movie action sequence. But it didn't live up to its premise, for me.

First-Person Platforming Pile-up: Clustertruck Released

Leaping across the backs of a convoy of trucks as they crash, flip, jack-knife, and explode sounds a right lark. That's Clustertruck [official site], a timetrialling first-person platformer which launched today. Correction: that's the early levels of Clustertruck. Then it'll introduce static obstacles, then swinging hammers, lasers, plummeting... it gets messy. Look, I need to finish this news post before I'm allowed to clock off…

Clustertruck Goes Platforming Across A Honking Pile-Up

Clustertruck is a first-person platformer about leaping across the backs of a convoy of perpetually-crashing trucks while dodging traps, and yet we've not posted about it before? That doesn't seem right. Maybe someone forget to tag the post properly. And mention the game's name. And say anything about trucks. Or the post must have said something so libellous that we agreed not only to delete…

Air Brawl Brings Angry Bats To Plane Warfare

Imagine my disappointment when I clicked on a link about Air Brawl [official Facebook] only to realise the game didn't have anything to do with the classic Golden Retriever Basketball oeuvre. Instead, Air Brawl - a game about plane acrobatics and flying, gunny death - is intriguing even in the face of a supreme lack of heartwarming doggy yarn. It's been on Early Access for…
