An Interview with Horizon Chase Composer Barry Leitch

Chasing the Horizon in Top Gear (Yes, that was the best title I could think of. Deal with it.) Today, Aquiris Game Studio released their hit mobile game, Horizon Chase, on the PlayStation 4 and Steam in an enhanced Turbo edition, with a Nintendo Switch port announced for later this year. Horizon Chase is a retro-styled racing game that simulates the scrolling background effect used in almost every...

Infendo Review: Danmaku Unlimited 3 (Switch)

If you’re looking for a shoot ’em up/bullet hell-type game in a clean, professional package, Danmaku Unlimited 3 may be the answer to that search. A challenging yet oddly accommodating game, it provides the player with a set of ever increasingly difficult levels and tasks you with mastering your own ship’s movement to eliminate enemies and progress forward. There are a few unlock...

A Rainbow of Thoughts: Link-A-Pix Color for 3DS Review

By Steve Peacock Link-A-Pix Color is a puzzle game available for download on the 3DS eShop. Retailing for $7.99, this is a very reasonably priced game. At first glance, one might blow this off as a simple Picross clone. This is very inaccurate from what you actually get. This game sees you on a grid. Inside this grid are numbers of different colors. The number itself represents the number of conne...

Infendo Review – Furi (Switch)

You awaken in a jail cell, bound. In front of you starts a man with three demon masks. He attacks you, telling you you’ll be here forever. He clearly enjoys punishing you. He walks away, and suddenly another man, this one dressed like a rabbit, frees you. “Kill the jailer. Kill him and you’ll be free” he says. And so, your adventure in the world of Furi begins. Furi is a ga...

Infendo Review – Red Game Without a Great Name (Switch)

A small but admittedly pretty game, Red Game Without a Great Name is a pretty straightforward affair; You play as a little mechanical bird who has to deliver mail. The bird travels forwards automatically, and you tap it on the touchscreen and drag to a point where you want it to teleport. After you let go, the bird will poof to the new location and continue moving. Throughout the game, you’l...

Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap – Review

Dragons and Mermen and Mice, Oh My! Based on my observations, there are essentially three types of remakes. The first is often called a reimagining, in which the original property is taken as a jumping off point into a completely new, yet familiar experience. The second is known as an enhanced remake. These take the original material and alter it in an attempt to improve it and fix the rough spots...

Nugget of Wisdom: A Chicken Wiggle Review

By Steve Peacock There are a few developers I follow very closely. Yacht Club Games (Shovel Knight) and Gajin Games (Bit.Trip series) are two of the three that come to mind right off the bat. The one we are going to focus on today, Atooi, founded by Jools Watsham, is another of those devs. He is best known for Mutant Mudds, Mutant Mudds Super Challenge, and Xeodrifter. He is one of those devs that...

Enough Is Enough: Make Classic Nintendo Titles Free for Switch Owners

Confession time: Sometimes I like to lurk through unfinished Infendo articles from years ago just for kicks. I found one by an apparently ex-Infendo writer named Michael titled “Should Super Mario Bros. Be Free to Play”. While the article wasn’t actually about making old Nintendo games free, it did get me thinking: Isn’t it about time we make the oldest titles part of a pac...

Mining for a Crafty Review

Minecraft Switch Edition By Steve Peacock Wow! For the better part of two weeks I’ve been saying I was going to get this review written. The funny thing about game reviews is how when the game is good, it is really difficult to put the game down long enough to write the review. With a game as old as Minecraft, I don’t feel like it needs much of an introduction. You can get that from a quick Google...

Infendo Review: Brick Race (New 3DS)

Imagine if someone hacked a game of Tetris and turned it into a top down racing game, and you have Brick Race. Actually, it’s more like a top down object dodging game than an actual race. Let me explain. Start with, as I said before, a Tetris board. At the bottom of the board is a collection of blocks that vaguely resemble a race car. You can move this car left or right on the grid in order ...
