Review: Party Hard 2

by Mazen Abdallahon November 7, 2018
Often, the objective of a game is to have as much fun as possible. GTA, Skyrim, Fallout, these games are all about letting you do all manner of crazy sandbox stuff. However, Party Hard was a game that was about the total opposite, namely stopping someone’s fun. The premise was fairly simple: it’s 3 AM […]

Review: Mr. Shifty

by Mazen Abdallahon April 28, 2017
Okay so let’s get one thing out of the way. Mr. Shifty is similar to Hotline Miami. It’s not ‘Hotline Miami meets x’ or a new take on the formula, it’s a top-down action game that shares various similarities with everyone’s favorite neon-soaked murder-and-drugs simulator.

The latter category is also known as ‘masocore’ and it’s a category I’m actually very fond of. Maybe it’s the challenge, or maybe it’s […]

Review: Party Hard

by Nazih Fareson April 27, 2016
Who hasn’t had the guilty crazy dream of killing his noisy neighbors? It might sound harsh, but I’ve been into that situation where after a rough day of work, a big house party prevented me from sleeping. So what’s the answer according to studio Pinokl Games? Well a bloody killing spree, with a hint of stealth and some 8-bit graphics. Party […]
