The Mummy Demastered crawls out of its sarcophagus

I passed on watching the recent attempt to reboot The Mummy, although friends tell me I didn't miss much. While sad that it'll probably be flying under the radar thanks to the film's less than sterling reputation, Wayforward's official game of the movie looks to be a far better product than its cinema counterpart. While some have compared The Mummy Demastered [steam page] to Contra…

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero jumps, climbs, and swims out

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero [official site], the crowdfunded fourth game in the platformer series starring a genie who can transform into animals, launched today. I've not paid much attention to the revamped re-releases of Shantae's old handheld games I'd seen bouncing on PC but I'll take Half-Genie Hero raising $776,084 on Kickstarter as a sign that many folks think the series is quite good and want…

A Boy And His Blob Bouncing Onto PC

As magical childhood friends go, a wee alien blob which transforms into different objects when it eats jellybeans is a pretty good one. He's the co-star of A Boy and His Blob [official site], WayForward's re-imagining of ye olde A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia (cracking subtitle, that) from the NES in 1989. The adorable puzzle-platformer debuted on Wii back in 2009, and…

Mighty Switch Force! Academy Reports For Duty

What a day Mighty Switch Force! Academy [official site] protagonist Patricia Wagon has had. Instead of starting Cadet training with the local police force, she finds herself trapped in a hologram simulating a gravity-defying, system-switching world of 2D puzzles. What a day, right enough. After a short stint in Early Access, Mighty Switch Force! Academy has now graduated to full release on Steam, with Patty…

Mighty Switch Force! Academy Hits Early Access

"From the day she was born, Patricia Wagon has dreamed of becoming a police officer," reads the premise for Mighty Switch Force! Academy, a jaunty rags to riches story that follows poor Ms. Wagon in her pursuit for a job in justice. Sound faintly familiar? Ah, good call! Mighty Switch Force! Academy is in fact a spin-off of a game named simply Mighty Switch Force!…

WayForward’s Mighty Switch Force Now On PC

WayForward have built a fair reputation for themselves with platformers like Shantae, but most of their games are for Nintendo systems. They do bring them over to PC every so often, though, as they now have with Mighty Switch Force [official site]. Spacecop Patricia Wagon (Patty Wagon, yeah? Paddy Wagon, right? Eh?) is out to take down Space Hooligans in 2D shooty puzzle-platforming with this…

Time To Try Again: New Adventure Time Game Announced

Once upon a time, one could simply whisper the words "Adventure Time video game" and need to curl up into a ball to have any hope of surviving the crushing crowd of fans crying "Mathematical!" and "Algebraic!" in attempts to will such a fantastic gameological creature into existence. Then Adventure Time: Finn and Jake's Epic Quest and Explore the Dungeon Because I DON'T KNOW! came…

Bloody Ports: BloodRayne Betrayal Rising Next Week

I remember when vampires were cool, before they were ruined by girls with their soft emotions and squishy bits. Vampires should wear uncomfortable amounts of PVC, have names like Sisters of Mercy song titles, pose moodily on rooftops, and kill loads of soldiers in slow-motion. Not, I don't know, sparkle or something? They sparkle now, don't they? And hold hands? And we're supposed to want…

I’m As Rad As Hell: Double Dragon – Neon

Double Dragon: Neon appeared on consoles in 2012, riding a skateboard and juggling nunchakus while spraypainting 'cowabunga' onto an abandoned subway train. Now, a trailer plucked from a less bleak version of 1984 brings news that the co-op side-scrolling brawler will be arriving on Steam 'soon'. The Blood Dragon of the Double Dragon franchise, Neon recognises the silliness of Billy and Jimmy's adventures, takes a…
