Review: Hungry Shark World

by Nazih Fareson July 22, 2018
Years after the original Hungry Shark Evolution, the studio Future Games of London – acquired by Ubisoft later on- came back with its sequel known as Hungry Shark World on mobile devices. A game so simple to play, yet delightfully addictive, pitting sharks and their mission to spread terror in the seas, the game was […]

Review: State of Decay 2

by Nazih Fareson June 8, 2018
Despite a number of technical flaws, the original State of Decay managed to convince a small crowd of devout survival players with its original vision of a zombie game. Nearly five years after the first release, Undead Labs partnered with Microsoft on making its sequel an exclusivity for the Xbox One and PC, and even if State […]

Review: Death Road to Canada

by Mazen Abdallahon May 22, 2018
Ah, Zombie games. Remember when they were hip? Well, that went on for like 10 minutes before the market was flooded. Nowadays people are definitely over the whole zombie trend, and I think we’re wiser for it. That’s not to say zombie movies, books, and games don’t exist; it’s just not a bandwagon everyone wants […]


Review: Frostpunk

by Luciano Rahalon April 28, 2018
Humanity has fallen and in the blink of extinction, you are its last hope as the rule of the only remaining city in this post-apocalyptic frozen world. Frostpunk is the latest release from 11 Bit Studios, a developer that is no stranger to strategy games with their award-winning game Anomaly: Warzone Earth. You set off […]

Review: Metal Gear Survive

by Nazih Fareson February 24, 2018
By announcing Metal Gear Survive back in the summer of 2016, Konami was highly not the most popular kid in the industry. After the departure of Hideo Kojima – and the many controversies surrounding him leaving – the Japanese company suffered a big lash from the gaming fans and the series’ creator. Now 2 years later, […]

Review: Fortnite

by Nazih Fareson August 7, 2017
Announced back late 2011, it took Epic Games and the People Can Fly team over five years to finally release Fortnite, which is probably their most ambitious project to date. Yet, before we start this review, you should all note that although the game is out now on most platforms, it is technically a paid […]


Review: Impact Winter

by Mazen Abdallahon June 5, 2017
The game world spends a lot of time thinking about the end of days. Specifically, what happens after social order breaks down and it devolves into a self-serving and totally chaotic mess.  For the most part, it’s about the lone survivor trying to brave the elements and stay alive despite its all. Of course, there […]

Review: Rain World

by Mazen Abdallahon March 27, 2017
As far as settings go, the post-apocalyptic world is a really popular one for games. Besides the aesthetic of decay and the chance to avoid having to use so many colors in their design, I imagine game developers like post-apocalyptic settings because they give them a chance to pit the player against a cruel, dangerous […]

Review: Resident Evil 7 Biohazard

by Nazih Fareson February 1, 2017
From the old Doom titles, F.E.A.R., passing by recently modern Alien: Isolation, very few FPS games in my career really pushed me to wimp out of the game (except the Dead Space series but that’s a third person shooter). Like at the movies, fear can become one of the most effective ways to have your adrenaline pumped, to fully immerse […]


Review: The Final Station

by Mazen Abdallahon September 8, 2016
There are enough games about the end of the world to paper a Victorian manor, so when I saw The Final Station I was initially skeptical. But, they introduced the concept of a train plowing through the post-apocalyptic world, and it reminded me of that awesome movie Snowpiercer. And it turns out that The Final […]
