Peaky Blinders: Mastermind comes to PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC 20th of August 2020


Curve Digital have today announced that the very first game based on the award-winning Peaky Blinders TV series - Peaky Blinders: Mastermind - will launch across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on 20th August.

Peaky Blinders: Mastermind - which can be pre-ordered on Xbox One and Steam for PC from today - is a puzzle-adventure game based on the multi-award-winning TV show, developed by celebrated independent studio FuturLab, in collaboration with the creative and production teams behind Peaky Blinders, the independent production company Caryn Mandabach Productions.

Taking place immediately before the events of the show’s very first season, players will join the Shelby family's criminal organisation as they discover a sinister plot to put Tommy out of business.

Players must plan and enact strategies by taking direct control of key members of the Shelby family simultaneously over the same timeline, moving characters into position at exactly the right moment in order to navigate challenging scenarios.

According to James Marsden, Game Director at FuturLab, the game is a creative interpretation of the world the TV show has created.

“It's been an honour to be trusted with the Peaky Blinders license,” says Marsden. “our team has created a game that reflects the heart of what makes the show compelling: Tommy Shelby's ability to manipulate friends, family and foes in the pursuit of his master plan.”

In Peaky Blinders: Mastermind, players will be able to freely set and rewind each character's path in order to tune all of their actions for perfect coordination, tactically utilising characters and stealth to solve increasingly complex puzzles. It’s a bold take on the series that suitably impressed the show’s distributor Endemol Shine.

Anil Mistry, Director of Gaming & ECommerce, ESG said 
"We are thrilled to be partnering with Curve and FuturLab in making the first official Peaky Blinders game. Futurlab has faithfully re-created the Peaky Blinders’ universe and having Cillian provide the voiceover adds a real sense of authenticity to this game. Hopefully, fans of the show and gamers alike will be excited to get their thinking caps on and enjoy this compelling puzzle adventure like no other."

In Peaky Blinders: Mastermind players will: -

*Witness the rise of Tommy Shelby as the true leader of the Peaky Blinders in early 20th century Birmingham
*Utilise Tommy’s prowess for planning to set up complex scenarios
*Control Tommy, Arthur, Polly and more on the ground as they pull off mission after mission

Caryn Mandabach Productions’ Jamie Glazebrook, executive producer of all five series of Peaky Blinders, who was involved in reviewing the creative for the game, said 
“The trailer dropped in my inbox, and I watched it five times in a row. It blew me away. And it’s Peaky Blinders through and through. I can’t wait for players to experience this incredible game“.

FuturLab has collaborated with Feverist, the U.K. art-rock band who were involved in the soundtrack to Peaky Blinders Season 1, to create an original bespoke soundtrack for the game. The single Reveller, from the game’s upcoming soundtrack album, will be revealed tomorrow as will the track The Secret, which features in the reveal trailer.


Peaky Blinders: Mastermind will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam for PC on 20th August 2020 for $24.99/€24.99/£19.99. You can pre-order the game on Xbox One and Steam for PC

A Rock Opera FPS Roguelike with Relentless Rhythm - ‘BPM: Bullets Per Minute’ Confirms it's Bound for PC this September


A fast, frenetic shooter with a rhythm that just won’t quit, BPM: Bullets Per Minute turned heads when developer Awe Interactive lifted the lid on its first project back in the Spring. Now the studio can reveal its finely-tuned rhythm FPS will bring its bang-bang-to-the-beats action to Steam for PC on Tuesday 15th September.

BPM: Bullets Per Minute brings the kind of gameplay you’d expect from a dungeon-based shooter to the table, but encases it in a world where every action - every shot, every jump, and every dodge - is pulled off to the beat of an epic rock soundtrack.

The game serves up randomly generated dungeons infested with brilliantly preposterous monsters and tasks players with taking on the role of the mighty Valkyrie. The goal? Take out each and every boss to the beat, and look pretty darn cool while doing so.

“There’s no doubt we were inspired by the retro shooters from when we were growing up when putting BPM: Bullets Per Minute together, but we think the game’s unashamed slave-to-the-rhythm ethic gives it a fresh feel and an added edge,” says Awe Interactive founder David Jones.. “It’s that sweet spot between giving gamers a taste of the supreme shooters they loved when they were young, but also offering them something that genuinely pushes the boundaries of the genres the game straddles.”

BPM: Bullets Per Minute delivers a total of seven bosses players have to topple in order to reach the final boss, collecting an assortment of weapons, abilities, and items as they go, ensuring every playthrough has a unique feel.

All the action plays out to the beat of a barnstorming soundtrack, which takes inspiration from the likes of Wagner, Muse and Audioslave. Every pulse is tied to the in-game action, with the structure of BPM: Bullets Per Minute’s audio pulling everything together to make one cohesive world.

In short, if Brian May were to play games, he’d play BPM: Bullets Per Minute.

BPM: Bullets Per Minute features:
*Shoot, jump and dodge to the beat while battling hordes of enemies.
*Fight powerful bosses in challenging boss battles that will push you to the edge.
*Explore randomly generated dungeons.
*Choose from 5 different characters with unique strengths and weaknesses.
*Wield a powerful arsenal of weapons, all with different behaviour for firing and reloading to the beat of the soundtrack.
*Battle a diverse array of enemies, each with unique rhythmic behaviours.
*Get overpowered and fire shotgun rockets while flying through the air.
*Utilise abilities that radically alter the way you play the game, from teleport to freezing bolts.
*Equip over 40 items that buff your character in unique and interesting ways.
*Experience an epic rock opera soundtrack.
*Challenge modes for extra gameplay.

BPM: Bullets Per Minute will launch on Steam for PC this September, with Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions following later.

REVIEW - Aircraft Evolution on Xbox One - By Jon Donnis


Review By Jon Donnis
I was kindly sent a copy of Aircraft Evolution by the fine people at Sometimes You‬.

Aircraft Evolution is a retro style side scrolling shooter, something that reminded me instantly of the 1980s classic Silkworm which some of you older gamers reading this would have played on the Amiga.

In this game your main task is to destroy enemy bases, tanks and soldiers from a variety of places that you unlock as you progress through the levels.

There are 4 time periods you play in, from the past going through to the future, so you start off with a wooden plane and eventually you can end up with a futuristic shooter.

There are the typical kinds of upgrades you can make to your plane, weapons, fuel, speed and so on.
40 Missions await you and there is plenty there to keep you busy for a while.

The Good:
The graphics and sounds are crisp and detailed, although sometimes its a bit hard to see where you are shooting, you will tend to rely on dropping bombs anyway, the game play is fast and fun. There is plenty of replay value to the game to improve your scores and get better upgrades.

The Bad:
When you first start to the play the controls are frustrating and will take some getting used to, when you do the game plays much better, but that first ten minutes playing you will find yourself wondering if a better control system or at least a choice of control systems would have been a good option. But like I said you will soon get used to it and forget it was ever a problem.

Summary:
A fun action side scrolling shooter that seems to be rare these days.
And enjoyable game, and worthy a of a strong 8/10 from me.

Aircraft Evolution will be released on Nintendo Switch™, Xbox One and PlayStation®4 on July 22nd! Price is 9.99 💵 everywhere! There are some good offers if you pre-order so you might want to do that.


'The Battle of Polytopia: Moonrise' releasing on Steam in August


STOCKHOLM, Sweden – 14 July 2020 – (STEAM) Indie developer Midjiwan AB have announced that their award-winning, visually distinctive turn-based strategy game The Battle of Polytopia: Moonrise, will be making its long awaited arrival on PC, Mac OSX and Linux on 4th August 2020.

Drifting in the space of an alternate dimension to ours, The Battle of Polytopia: Moonrise is set on the Square, the bizarre home planet of the Polytopians, 12 individual tribes each with their own characteristics and personalities whose only shared passion is their love of fighting. As a player, you will take on the role of the ruler of one of these tribes as you attempt to build and expand your civilization in competition with the other tribes, researching clever technologies and harnessing powerful magic in the process.

Will you choose to be the leader of the Xin-Xi, reserved yet adventurous traditionalists that are wary of change or outsiders? Perhaps the Hoodrick, who love archery, nature, mushrooms and famed for their baked goods?

Ghost of Tsushima is an upcoming action-adventure game developed by Sucker Punch Productions and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for PlayStation 4. Featuring an open world for players to explore, it revolves around Jin Sakai, one of the last samurai on Tsushima Island during the first Mongol invasion of Japan in the 1270s. The game will be released on July 17, 2020.

Ghost of Tsushima is an action-adventure stealth game played from a third-person perspective. It features a large open world without any waypoints and can be explored without guidance. Players can quickly travel to different parts of the game's world by riding a horse. An item that acts as a grappling hook will be available to access areas that are difficult to reach. The game features side quests and non-playable characters to interact with.

Players can engage in direct confrontation with enemies using weapons such as a katana, which can also be used to chain up a series of fatal strikes after highlighting specific enemies. Alternatively, using stealth allows one to evade enemies and strike them silently with tools such as firecrackers to create distractions, smoke bombs to disorient alerted foes, and kunai for striking multiple enemies. One-versus-one dueling with non-playable characters is also optional.

REVIEW: Clash Force on Xbox One



Review by Jon Donnis
I was sent a copy of Clash Force on Xbox One by the nice people at Ratalaika Games S.L.

Clash Force is a classic, retro style shoot'em up. With 8 bit graphics, reminiscent of old Sega Master System platformers.

You have the bad guy, the "Evil Crackman" and his minions and your mission is to take control of the "Clash Force" to stop them.

There are 3 heroes to choose from, Voom, Scorpido and Echid. I prefer to play with Voom, no reason why, I just like him.

You battle your way through 20+ levels, set in different "worlds", Forest, Desert, Underground and Crackman's Flying Fortress.

As you play you will collect various weapon power ups, shields, and life hearts, and there are 3 difficulty settings.


It is pretty standard 2D Shoot Em Up platform action. If you play on the easy setting, the gamer points drop after each level, so for all you gamer point collectors, this is an easy 1000 gamer points for you.

The graphics are exactly what they should be, the sound effects also are exactly what they need to be. This game wont break any records, but it is a fun platformer that you can add to your collection. Starts off pretty easy, but gets nice and hard as you progress.

I score this game a solid 7/10

REVIEW - Edna & Harvey: The Breakout - Anniversary Edition


Review By Jon Donnis
I was kindly sent a copy of Edna & Harvey: The Breakout - Anniversary Edition by Daedalic Entertainment for review.

You play as Edna, a young girl who wakes up in a padded cell of an insane asylum with no memory of her past or how she ended up there. Her only help is her talking toy bunny Harvey. Will she be able to escape, regain her memory and find her way home?


Originally released over 10 years ago on Windows PC, you can play the game in its original graphic mode, or an updated HD mode. The basic games mechanics find you trying to solve puzzles, and get to the next part of the story.


Now I have not played this game on PC, but from videos I have seen you play with a mouse, as you would expect on what is a "point and click adventure", on Xbox instead you have to choose pre-selected points with your right stick, while moving around you character with the left stick. I hate to say this but it is a truly awful control system. It completely ruins the game when you first start and I imagine many players will simply give up. Why you cant just have a cursor on screen that you can move about with the right stick as you would a mouse I will never know.


However I am not many players, and I did not give up. And I am glad I did not, eventually you will get used to the control system, it will take a while, but when you do you will find yourself quickly forgetting how frustrating it felt when you first started the game.

The puzzles can be quite hard, and with no built in hint system, this soon turns into a game where you tend to rely more on trying every possible options, clicking every possible interactive element, as opposed to using pure skill. This is an annoying game mechanic, as it takes away a certain feeling of achievement, since you rarely feel like you get past an area or puzzle purely on skill, but more as on a trial and error basis.


With all of that said, I still felt the need and desire to complete the game, the graphics are fantastic in the new version compared to the older style graphics which you can swap between at any point. The characters you interact with are fun, well voiced over. And with two slightly different endings, you will want to make sure you make a save near the end of the game, so you can see both.

I am unsure how to score this game, I really came close to just giving up on the very first screen at the start of the game, and then again the first time I was supposed to swap controls between Edna and Harvey due to the fact it was almost impossible to figure out how to swap between them, as the game doesn't tell how, and the little clue (press up on the control pad) was obscured by onscreen graphics. I figured it out in the end purely by luck. Now I did not give up, and once I got going, I did enjoy the game, and I even started a second play through as I wanted to see how the early parts of the game would play, now I actually fully knew the controls, and I sailed through it.

I enjoyed the game in the end and as such I will score the game 7/10. But with that said, I implore the game makers to release an update so people can play the game closer to how you would on a PC, either with a plug in mouse, or with an onscreen cursor controlled by the right stick. Add a bit more of an on screen tutorial, at least until the first time you swap characters, and I would push that score up to an 8/10
