Top-down shoot-o-brawler Redeemer spurts out

Released last night, it’s a top-down shoot-o-brawler where you can blast fools’in the face or even stealth-kill them, but that seems a waste when you can also rip off their arm and use it to beat other baddies to death. It’s that sort of video game.

RunGunJumpGun Review

For as unsettling as the end of the universe can be, ThirtyThree’s new action platformer RunGunJumpGun is able to find tons of fun in the perilous final moments of a dying solar system. Evoking familiar moments of other difficult indie games, this painfully appetising explosion of colour and sound will have you coming back for more even after your hundredth time dying on the same damned stage.

Zombie Night Terror Review

While well-placed mutations convert the humans to undead minions in Zombie Night Terror, the game itself could be just the infection needed to help more zombie-centric titles into the market.
