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

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.

Or maybe the Bardur, where the local tavern is their favourite place and Ullefurgh their drink of choice, a delightful concoction of pine needles, hot water and rabbit fat. Truth be told, it’s an acquired taste!

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 by Jon Donnis

Clash Force will be priced for 4.99$/€ for all platforms.
