In Schrodinger’s Cat, players assume the role of the titular creature as they explore and solve puzzles in the Particle Zoo of various subatomic particles. The game is a simple game, but it has many complexities using a combo system where players can combine particles to create various effects, assisting them in their exploration and safety within the Zoo. The story of Schrodinger’s Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark begins with a nice little explanation on the world that the game takes place in.

RahXephon Review

rahxephon-box-art

RahXephon is an odd mecha/supernatural anime series from Studio Bones about a near adult boy named Ayato in a world at war with creatures known as the Mu. The series originally aired in 2001 in Japan, but was released in the west originally in the year 2004. Since then, the Australian publishing license behind RahXephon has changed hands a few times and now resides with Siren Visual here in Australia.

Along the way to school for his exams, he catches up with his best friends … Continue reading

Yuki is a student always on the move. With no parents, he lives with his Grandmother who travels to wherever it is that she can find work.

It uses bright and poppy colours, along with a vibrant palette to really bring the world to life. From the get-go, you’ll notice how bright and distinctive the character Yuki is, even … Continue reading

LA Cops Review (Playstation 4)

la-cops-logo

LA Cops could have been fun. There is still some elements of gameplay that did make it a fun experience, but the Modern Dream developed action/puzzle game does fall short of a fantastic experience. It’s an 1970’s inspired buddy cop game featuring eight main missions and several side missions with several difficulty levels to suit any level of gamer. It’s a short game, at most lasting a few hours of gameplay. However, despite some challenging moments, the game can lose its shine early on and can be a bit of a chore to play through. The game doesn’t have an overarching story, rather there are eight different missions to be completed. Set in various locations around the USA, they range … Continue reading
