Loving The Retro Feel Of Twin Gates 2

Loving The Retro Feel Of Twin Gates 2

Yes, sure we can now don a pair of oculus rifts and run around in a make believe castle fighting dragons and that’s awesome, however, a lot of gamers still prefer to play the incredibly basic dot matrix-type games that became so popular in the eighties. Because of this love of nostalgia…

Puzzle The Picture: Picking Up The Pieces

Puzzle The Picture: Picking Up The Pieces

Jigsaw puzzles used to be all the rage. Now, however, they’ve fallen out of favour, largely I assume, because they don’t come complete with a touch screen. They were invented in 1760 or there about, and were originally constructed by painting the image onto the wood, then cutting said wood with a jigsaw, hence the name. Things soon switched to cardboard, and remained that way for many years. Until now. Mikal Johansen has switched the game…

Feel The Wave Of Nostalgia Wash Over You With Snake ’97

Nostalgia ain’t what it used to be, but try telling that to Snake ‘97 by dsd 164, the new retro-fitted Snake game for iPhones.

With this came the obvious fashion challenges of matching your mobile case with your sunglasses for that day,…

Survival Of The Biggest: Agar.io Takes Darwinian Evolutionary Theory To The Next Level

Survival Of The Biggest: Agar.io Takes Darwinian Evolutionary Theory To The Next Level

Darwin’s theory of natural selection can be applied to many faculties, not least global politics’ unending fight for power. Either grow and adapt or face becoming obsolete and potentially extinct.

Full Tilt Addictiveness With Dot Worlds

Full Tilt Addictiveness With Dot Worlds

What had you achieved by the time you were 11-years-old? For me, the year was 1999; I’d managed to kiss a girl behind the bike sheds, get into a decent secondary school, and maybe design a character or two for a comic book epic I had planned. I also had completed Zelda: Ocarina of Time without the aid of the internet, which is no mean feat I assure you, but sadly outside the scope of…

Why Don’t You All Just BoxOff?

Why Don’t You All Just BoxOff?

What is the nature of addiction? The Oxford dictionary defines it as ‘the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming‘. Is it safe to assume that addiction is subjective, that it effects everyone differently? There’s certainly such a thing as an addictive personality, which can have a bearing on the severity of the case. I wouldn’t have previously described myself as fitting that particular…
