Review by Jon Donnis
I was sent a copy of Music Racer by Sometimes You, and immediately the game reminded me of a game I reviewed last year called Avicii Invector, and that is a problem, as I really loved that game, so straight away Music Racer is up against strong competition.
The game itself is a simple rhythm game, you ride along tracks, and you collect music notes, each track has 3 positions for you to move the car, and depending what mode you are in will depend on if there are obstacles to avoid or not. Unlike Avicii Invector, you don't have to press any corresponding buttons as you collect the notes, you just collect them.
As you complete levels you get points based on how good you did.
The more points you get, the more cars and track you can unlock.
There are 14 levels and 25 cars, all cars can be customised too, with different colours and so on, but this doesn't really affect the car other than visually.
There are some classic cars in there though, the Trans Am from Knightrider (KITT), and a DeLorean from Back To The Future, stand out
The tracks are created in real time based on the songs that are being played.
Sadly these are not songs you will recognise, and although decent songs, it is a shame that you cannot somehow play the game using your own songs, I believe you can do that on the mobile version. Why can't we just plug in a USB stick with some MP3s on and play them? It would make the game instantly 10 times better.
The graphics are stunning, truly amazing, my main problem with the game is the game play itself, it gets repetitive fast, and although those gamer points drop thick and fast as you unlock things, I am not sure this is a game you will come back to once you have unlocked everything.
Its a fun game, cheap price, give it go.
The world of Lera has fallen ill to an unstoppable plague and as the King of Ebris, you – Farren – franticly seek a way to bring an end to your people’s suffering in Ena: The Kingdom Above All Kingdoms. And to rid your world of this illness once and for all.
In the weakness of your distress, your Regent – Gulbrand – speaks to you a tale of hope, a way to purify the world by means of the Spires and the extraordinary resources that await beyond the realms.
Desperate for answers, you leave Gulbrand in charge of your kingdom to trek out to the other six Kingdoms of Lera and reopen the Spires; the other kings willing or not.
You succeed in your endeavor, however with the reopening of the last Spire… something is wrong. The world begins to fall apart, the heavens turn dark and the oceans go dry. In the aftermath of your deeds, you find yourself stranded in the middle of a deteriorating world, only thoughts of worry to comfort you, as you trek onward to get back to your kingdom.
The journey back takes you three years.
And when you arrive… you do not recognize your own kingdom.
Forsaken and betrayed by your own Order, fight back against the forces of a long-forgotten realm as you try to save existence from the evil of a usurper king in pursuit of what lies beyond immortality in the Kings of Lorn: The Fall of Ebris.

I was sent a copy of Bucket Knight to review by SometimesYou, and as as 40 something male who grow up playing run and gun platform games such as Ghosts 'n Goblins, I couldn't be happier.
The basic story of the game is you play the part of a brave Knight who is looking to find the Holy Grail and then sell it. You go through the game, level by level, exploring dungeons, while killing your enemies, avoiding traps and collecting loot and food to stay alive along the way.
There is no on screen text, no real instructions, you just start to play and figure things out. Now although that is a bit frustrating at first, you will soon figure it out and get into the swig of things.
For you gamerpoint whores out there, the gamerpoints come quick and fast as you complete each level.
The game itself is quite short, but it has great pixel graphics, decent sounds, and overall fun gameplay.
Only negatives would be that its quite easy and you will finish it pretty quick, but for its low price, it is a good simple game that will give you enjoyment for the few hours you play it.
I score Bucket Knight at 7/10

Powered by Unreal® Engine 4, Deliver Us The Moon is set in an apocalyptic near-future where the Earth’s resources have been depleted and humanity looks to the stars.

The solution: colonization and exploitation of the moon’s natural reserves of Helium-3 to serve the energy needs of a growing Earth population. Suddenly, and without warning, communications with the Moon cease, and the energy source is lost. Plunged into darkness and without power, years pass as world governments come together once more to embark on a new mission - to re-establish the energy supply and with it hope for the human race.

I was kindly sent Vasilis on Xbox for review, and as always I will give my honest opinions.
First of all I have never seen a game visually quite like this, I am sure there has been one or two before, but for me it was a first, the whole game is hand drawn in black and white, Vasilis the main character is a woman who has lost her husband Peter, and she starts off looking for him.
The game is set in a city that is under riots, and rebellions, people being killed, buildings set on fire. The city is being run by workers and students and it is your job as Vasilis to navigate this to find clues about your husband, and eventually bring him back to life. Yes I know without wanting to spoil too much, people have built towers that bring people back to life.
Although the storyline seems very strange, it is inspired by real life political events from Ukraine in 2014, although I don't personally recall towers being built to resurrect the dead, but maybe I missed that on BBC News.
The game itself is separated into about 5 chapters, and each chapter has you walking about speaking to people and trying to figure out the next thing you have to do to progress. Whether that is having enough money to buy a amputated hand from the morgue assistant to help bring your husband back to life, or telling people to go to a set area to unlock the next event.
The game can be slightly buggy at times, and some of the conversations can be a bit confusing, but that can be put down to the game being written by someone whose English is not their first language.
I am not sure exactly who the game is aimed at, it can be quite a trippy game at times, the visuals are excellent despite being black and white, and truly are of a unique style. The in game map is basically useless and doesn't really help you, and I often found myself wondering around aimlessly going everywhere multiple times and trying to talk to everyone, as I tried to figure out what I was supposed to do next.
Despite these problems, I did find myself coming back to the game, determined to get to the next part of the story, and that really is the games best point, the story is one that will have you intrigued, and if you can get past the dodgy controls and infuriatingly slow main character, (she walks everywhere and you cant speed her up), then as the story progresses there is a feeling of satisfaction, plus when those gamer points drop and you are not quite sure what you did to get them, if you are a gamer point fan as I am, that always gives you motivation to finish the game. With that said I have not quite finished the game yet, I believe I am on the final chapter, so should finish it pretty soon.
I think if you are fan of games that are just completely different, both in visuals and style, and enjoy a good story then you will enjoy it, but if you are just after quick thrills and arcade style action this game wont be for you.
Watch the trailer below, this is one you will have to make your own mind up on.
I score the game 6/10
Vasilis will be released on Nintendo Switch™, Xbox One, PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®Vita on February 26’th!

A Doomcar Named Desire? Post-apocalyptic Driving Match-ups Open for Pre-registration This Valentine’s Day
YOOZOO Games, Shanghai — 14.02.20 | The UK Govt.’s decision to bring forward the scrapping of petrol and diesel cars in 2032 may well be rendered irrelevant by the year 2057; when massive space vessels of unknown origin suddenly appear on earth and lay waste to our world with unrelenting and overwhelming force. While we can hardly blame Boris Johnson for such short-termism; we can definitely blame the faceless alien invaders who’ve left us battling for resources in a post-apocalyptic wasteland.
However, they’ve now gone, leaving us to pick up the pieces across inhospitable and radioactive badlands. In the meantime, humanity has (it seems) consulted Jeremy Clarkson; and chosen to institute a murderous new order of vehicular society. One that might just survive this toxic and hostile environment. Powerful, atmospheric, electromagnetic waves prevent most electronics from functioning; so armoured combat vehicles are the only way to get to the shops — but there are no shops. A total dearth of retail leaves us fighting over increasingly scarce resources. A death-dealing team of war chariots seems the only reasonable way to keep busy and get around.
DoomCar is a strategy RPG wrapped in a distinctly dystopian world but this doesn't mean you can’t have lots of fun simply surviving. Collect and upgrade over 100 vehicles, source new equipment (or simply steal it) from all manner of NPC factions. Take your supercharged war chariots out on the open road and engage in the ultimate battle royale; with rogue-like modes making every road trip a new and maniacally dicey experience. You can also tailor war chariot battle formations, individual driver skills, professions, affinities, and progression.
Create the ultimate team, take on all comers and become the despotic driver of your dreams. A rich variety of single player, cooperative, PvP, and clan vs clan modes will satisfy even the most competitive amongst you. While an advanced matchmaking system provides fair, competitive PvP environments for players of all skill levels and progression.

Your name is Rania. This is your first night working for Cloudpunk, the semi-legal delivery company based in the sprawling city of Nivalis. You go everywhere, from the Marrow below to the spires that pierce the grey clouds high above before scraping the edge of the troposphere. No delivery job is too dangerous, and no one is faster than a Cloudpunk driver.
In this story-based exploration game, you will meet a diverse range of characters including androids, AI and unscrupulous humans at every level of society. Everyone has a story, and in the course of one night in Nivalis, everything will change.
From the dawn of creation, the Council has maintained the balance across existence. Carrying out their orders are the Horsemen, Nephilim (powerful beings spawned from the unnatural Union of Angels and demons) who have pledged themselves to the Council and been granted immense power. However, this power came at a tragic cost: the Horsemen were ordered to use their newfound strength to wipe out the rest of their kind.

What followed was a bloody battle on Eden where the Horsemen, obeying the will of the Council, annihilated the Nephilim. Still reeling from the events on Eden, war and strife have been given a new assignment -- Lucifer, the enigmatic and deceptively demon King, has been plotting to upset the balance by granting power to master demons throughout Hell. War and strife must hunt down these Masters, gather information, and ultimately fight their way through a tangled, demonic conspiracy that threatens to forever upset the balance and unravel all of creation. Darksiders: Genesis is an action/adventure that tears its way through hordes of demons, Angels, and everything in-between on its way to Hell and back with guns blazing and swords swinging. Genesis gives players their first look at the world of Darksiders before the events of the original game, as well as introduces the Horseman strife.
