    If you want something that’s fun to quickly dip into, and offers a brain-teasing challenge perhaps while something more meaty installs on your hard drive, Tetra’s Escape should fit the bill nicely. It’s a fun twist on other block-based puzzle games, and enough new mechanics are introduced at a regular pace that it never gets stale.

    Done Running is good. Clichéd or not, Telltale always knows how to tell a great story. The graphics have improved two-fold and the controls are better than ever, but I had really hoped to see something new in the narrative, especially seeing as it’s the last time we’ll be playing these characters. I’m looking forward to the rest of the season, but I do have my fingers crossed that the narrative gets a much-needed shake-up in the next episode.

    Despite its flaws, no other game compares to the thrill and sheer wonderment that beating a monster in a perfectly co-ordinated group can bring.

    When it all comes together, Unavowed is practically flawless. In fact, no other point-and-click game has blown my socks off quite like this.

    Madden NFL 19 is more of an evolution than a revolution then, but what else did anyone expect? It’s a refinement of last year’s effort with further graphical prowess, more fluidity and a sprinkling of new features. It’s just a shame that its Longshot Homecoming mode is such a let-down.

    State of Mind still delivers a stellar sci-fi experience that, while comparable to other entries in the genre, has a character all its own.

    Despite all of its problems, there’s just something about Flipping Death that wins you over. The combination of puzzles and platforming is a winning one, especially when served with lashings of humour.

    If you’re prepared to stomach the game’s less appetising sections, you’ll still get a little Joy out of We Happy Few.

    The aesthetic is beautiful and enchanting. And the storytelling is the crowning jewel of it all.

    It’s a game that oozes charm out of every pore. A game that is challenging but does a good job of easing you in. And a game that is simply a joy to play because of its fluidity and the range of combat options available.

    Despite its few niggles, Overcooked 2 delivers everything that made the first game so great, but in a bigger, better and more appetising package.

    Trago is very effective, if a little short. I found myself playing and replaying it for 70 minutes straight before I even began to consider giving it a break, which shows that it’s just as addictive as the excessive drinking it portrays.

    So yeah, go with the Switch. You’ll die, die and then die again, but you’ll always go back for more.

    Easy to pick up yet hard to master, it’ll offer many hours of madness for you and your friends.

    The writing and fantastic 2D stills are a joy to behold, but choices here are largely tied to the narrative direction and involve clicking one of three options.

    I actually like the idea of an RPG without the exploration bits, but such a game desperately needs to place more emphasis on engaging and enjoyable combat, which here, is severely lacking.

    While it certainly has its moments as an engaging shooter, Sleep Tight might be better being slept through.

    It has all the drama you’d want, all the corruption you’d ask for, and the same gameplay as the first, but expanded upon to make it much more enjoyable. The new squad strategy mode is a huge surprise that was neither asked for nor expected, but it gives the game so much more.

    All you need to know is that it’s bad.

    Remothered generates just as much frustration as it does atmosphere, making it one of those games that you want to love but can’t because it just keeps kicking you in the face.

    Small games from smaller studious continue to amaze me with their effortless charm and unbound creativity, and Mugsters is easily one of those games.

    True, there are times you will hate oOo, and I came pretty close to deleting the game on more than one occasion. But if arcade thrills are your thing and you can view failure as a learning experience, then oOo Ascension will be right up your street.

    While Archangel: Hellfire‘s single player mode is undoubtedly entertaining, its multiplayer modes are where the game really comes into its own. By allowing free movement, it really feels like it’s giving you control of your very own mech.

    The cliffhanger, on the other hand, is perhaps the best so far – at least, in the way my game ended, it was – and episode four is set up to be the darkest and most twisted yet. I can’t wait.

    It’s colourful and challenging, has enough depth to keep you going back for more, and you can play it with friends.

    If you’re not already a fan though, there’s a good chance that the games included will have you scratching your head as to why they’re so highly revered.

    If you’ve even the remotest interest in trains, whether as a passenger or would-be-driver you’ll get a lot out of Train Sim World; hop on board and you won’t be disappointed.

    Taking between five and six hours to complete the main story, Pirates of the Enchiridion isn’t the longest game you’re going to play this year. It’s not even the most original, or most engaging. But it has charm, fun, and character in droves.

    I can’t help but wonder how much more fun the game would be if its enemies weren’t quite so numerous and resilient.

    For a game that contains no dialogue, Youropa is filled with charm from start to finish.
