[PS4] Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Review

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Review

WayForward is a studio known for developing the wonderful Shantae series. They’ve also worked on dozens of other projects with franchises such as Ducktales, Bloodrayne and Adventure Time, to name a few. A few years ago they took Shantae: Half-Genie Hero to Kickstarter with a goal of $400,000. They successfully blew past the goal, thus greatly increasing the scope of the game. This, unfortunately, meant that the game would end up being delayed several times until it was finally released during the end of December. Was the wait worth it? Come read our Shantae: Half-Genie Hero review to find out!

Smurfs 2 Header Image

Smurfs 2: The Video Game is a movie tie-in presented in the form of a 2D action adventure platformer release. It tells the story of the only girl in the Smurfs Village who is kidnapped by the dirty looking Smurfs called the Naughties, who are obviously being controlled by someone very evil… and that evil someone is Gargamel.

[PS3/Vita Review] Adventure Time: Secret of the Nameless Kingdom

Adventure Time: Secret of the Nameless Kingdom is the third “official” console video game based on the very popular Adventure Time TV show. Before going any further, take note that this game is nothing like the previous game, a boring dungeon crawler that was titled Explore the Dungeon Because I Don’t Know.

The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom is a refreshing take on the franchise and is greatly inspired by 16-bits Zelda games (specifically by A Link To The Past on the SNES), and is almost as fun to play as playing that classic back in the days!

Oh my glob! All three princesses of the Nameless Kingdom have disappeared! Finn (the human) and his best bro Jake (the shape-shifting dog) embark on an original heroic adventure created exclusively for the video game. Players journey through the Nameless Kingdom, an unexplored realm in the Land of Ooo, to rescue princesses and choose the one princess who commands the Nameless inhabitants. After all, every kingdom needs a princess who rules.
