REVIEW: Estiman for Nintendo Switch


Review by Jon Donnis
Kool2Play are back with another unique title for Nintendo Switch.
Estiman is an endless arcade type game that has you clicking on shapes which represent the highest number of duplicated shapes on the screen. The faster you can "estimate" the more time you get.

Once you clear the screen more shapes will pop up. And as the games gets harder, the shapes will get harder to differentiate, so might look similar, have similar colours and so on, to try and confuse you.

The game is very original, and very simple, and is perfect for the kind of person who just likes to pick up a game and play without too much thought.

As we have all come to expect from Kool2Play, the soundtrack is great, this time it is a perfect ambient style soundtrack that is never distracting and actually quite relaxing.


As a simple easy to play game, you will find yourself picking up this game to play for 5 minutes here, or a few minutes there, it really is perfect for that kind of situation when you need to kill some time.

And for only £1.79 it's hardly anything to buy.

For such a simple and easy to play game, at such a low cost it is hard to really criticise the game at all.

Fun, simple game that you will keep coming back to.
8/10

Jo Pearce, creative director for the BBC's digital drama team, says: “Fans will experience the TARDIS like never before in this thrilling new interactive story. As ever, the Doctor is full of warmth, wit and charm - helped by a wonderful performance from Jodie - which puts fans at the heart of the story as they immerse themselves in this beautifully animated world.”

Zillah Watson, head of BBC VR Hub, says: “Our team at the BBC VR Hub has been creating new experiences with the goal of helping to usher virtual reality into the mainstream, and Doctor Who is exactly the sort of series that can help more people to try this new technology.

Metro Exodus Review


Metro Exodus reviewed by Tristan Ogilvie on Xbox One X.

The year is 2036. A quarter-century after nuclear war devastated the earth, a few thousand survivors still cling to existence beneath the ruins of Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro. They have struggled against the poisoned elements, fought mutated beasts and paranormal horrors, and suffered the flames of civil war. But now, as Artyom, you must flee the Metro and lead a band of Spartan Rangers on an incredible, continent-spanning journey across post-apocalyptic Russia in search of a new life in the East.

Metro Exodus is an epic, story-driven first person shooter from 4A Games that blends deadly combat and stealth with exploration and survival horror in one of the most immersive game worlds ever created. Explore the Russian wilderness across vast, non-linear levels and follow a thrilling story-line that spans an entire year through spring, summer and autumn to the depths of nuclear winter.

Inspired by the novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky, Metro Exodus continues Artyom's story in the greatest Metro adventure yet.
