Rebound Dodgeball Evolved wasn’t quite what I expected a dodgeball game to be, I have to admit I knew nothing about this prior to looking at it for my review. On the surface this looks a little like Superhot giving it a bit of a VR vide to the graphical style, you’ll start by learning ..

Himno – Xbox One Review

Himno – Xbox One Review

Himno is another game that kind of came from nowhere for me, I’d not heard anything of it in the build up to its release, essentially the game is a procedurally generated platformer with you playing the part of what looks like a guy in a fly costume. You start off near a door in ..
