Similar to Wii Sports,…

Midnight Ghost Hunt is a beautifully silly Prop Hunt revival

Panic. Panic at the museum reception desk, as the astronaut suit I have belatedly possessed is set upon by a four-strong team of ghost busters. We’re in the opening seconds of the round and only 20 minutes into my Midnight Ghost Hunt hands-on preview, which means I’ve yet to figure out important concepts like ‘where the hunters spawn in’, or nuances like ‘this button lets me hide in props’ as opposed to ‘this button telekinetically waggles props about like ectoplasmic dinner bells’. As ghosts we’re supposed to mostly stay schtum for the five minutes it takes to reach midnight, at…

WarioWare: Get It Together! review: fantastic mini-game mayhem with a multiplayer twist

Let me get the important bit out of the way right at the start. If you, like me, were concerned when you saw that this new WarioWare title involves controlling characters rather than just abstract concepts – don’t worry. The manner of control may have slightly changed, but the series’ abstrawackiness is completely intact – and it’s still brilliant. In fact, the Switch’s first WarioWare title is closer to its beloved predecessors than I ever expected. The concept remains simple: you’re presented with a suite of ultra-short mini-games (micro-games, if you will) that last a couple of seconds each. The…

Fall Guys season 5 brings squad modes and jungle themed levels tomorrow

I imagine it would have been tougher for sir Indy Jones to have made it through the Temple Of Doom if he’d been a stumbly, bouncy little guy. That’s the fate that Fall Guys season 5 is dooming you to as of tomorrow. The new season theme is a jungle adventure with slippery and bouncy new jungle obstacles. As ever, it will bring a new reward track of costumes and cosmetics to unlock, one of which is that Spelunky fella. Oh, and Mediatonic are adding duos and trios squad modes. Read more
