[PSP/Vita Double Review] Brandish: The Dark Revenant

brandishTDR_revheader

Brandish: The Dark Revenant is a remake of Brandish, a game that was released on the SNES back in 1995. This remake was made by XSEED and Nihon Falcom and features full 3D graphics, and a few new floors to discover. Surprisingly, this title was released to the PSP so it might be one of the last releases we’ll ever see on that console and has full compatibility with the PS Vita.

Vittoria: A medieval kingdom banished deep underground a thousand years ago, brought down by the hubris of its ruler upon the slaying of a god. Lost and forgotten, a new kingdom was built upon the empty hills that mark its grave — but its ruins are still populated by the vengeful, twisted spirits of its once-proud people, and whosoever falls into these depths is most certainly doomed to suffer a torturous demise at their hands.

Bounty hunter Ares, however, is not quite so willing to accept this fate. In this reimagining of a golden era classic, Ares must work his way up to freedom through over 40 floors of unimaginable danger while his archrival, Dela — a powerful sorceress who fell into the ruins with him — is hot on his tail.

Solve brain-busting puzzles, battle unique enemies and forge ever onward in this contemporary dungeon-crawling action RPG from the makers of Ys and The Legend of Heroes!

[minis Review] Jetpack Joyride

Jetpack Joyride Review

Down on his luck as a struggling gramophone salesman, Barry comes across the “secret” laboratory of Legitimate Research, a corporation dedicated to developing crazy new technologies. Seizing the chance to become a hero, Barry begins his ride after commandeering a jetpack and making good his escape, where the player jumps in and guides his adventure with accessible one-touch gameplay.

Along the way, players must avoid lasers, missiles and electro zappers, all the while grabbing coins and trying out even more ridiculous vehicles – Lil’ Stomper, Profit Bird and the robot dragon himself, Mr. Cuddles!

Supporting the action is a robust Stash system, where everyone can track their progress, upgrade their gear and buy new gadgets for Barry.
