I'm a part-time gamer and a full-time writer of science-y things. On the few odd occasions that I'm able to wrestle the Xbox controller away from the avid gamers in my family, I enjoy spending time playing puzzle and adventure games.

Just Sing Review

I’m something of a connoisseur of singing and dancing games, having played and reviewed a fair few. The boys on the TXH team just don’t seem so keen on these types of games, or they just don’t want to admit it. I must confess to enjoying dancing more than singing games, for the simple fact that my singing is even worse than my dancing. But did playing Just Sing make me change my mind?

Just Dance 2016 Review

I’m pretty sure that many music fans in the UK will have owned at least one of the NOW That’s What I Call Music volumes over the last few decades.

Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse Review

As a fan of point and click adventures, the Broken Sword franchise has provided me with many hours of puzzling entertainment over the years. So, it was with excitement that I anticipated the opportunity to play the fifth and latest installment from Revolution software: The Serpent’s Curse. The game has all the features you would expect from a Broken Sword title; mystery and intrigue with a spattering of religious subtext and a well-developed sense of humour. Plus, a bit of romance from the ‘will they, won’t they?’ storyline of the two main protagonists.

Pneuma: Breath of Life Review

From the start, this first person puzzler is different to the rest. You are there at the narrator’s birth into a strange world and, like him, you have no idea what is going on. Through his monologue, you learn what he thinks about his world, how he might fit into it and what possibilities it could open up; is he an all-powerful and knowing God?

Threes Review

Threes is a puzzle game that is easy to pick up but not so easy to put down; this single player number matching puzzle game is surprisingly addictive. Is it worth an Xbox One outing?
