Ocean Runner | Review

Posted on January 15, 2016 by Jason Nason

Endless runners are always hard to gauge. Will they be just mindless and endless running or will they have some substance to them. As easy as it is to just play an endless runner they tend to wear away at me very easily. But Ocean Runner looked like it might have had something more than meets the eye. Boy was I right.

Here’s the story of the game. Yes, there is actually a story in the game.

Meet Gilbert, a bachelor fish who has fallen deeply in love with the beautiful Pearlina. Like all stunning fish, Pearlina’s one and only dream is to have the largest pearl in the ocean and like any love struck fish, Gilbert is on a mission to find it!

Sea Battle | Review

Posted on April 27, 2014 by Jason Nason

Teyon’s newest game is for the good old Nintendo DSi and the DSiWare service, something that has all but been abandoned by most developers. And with some of the games being released in the eShop looking like they could have easily been DSiWare titles, including lacking 3D support, that is a shame.

But Teyon’s Sea Battle, while solid in the gameplay, game mechanics and look, has a few quirks which drag it under.

If you’ve ever played the board game Battleship you’ll know exactly what to expect from this title. The game isn’t marketed that way though as the developers clearly don’t have the license to do so, but that is what you’re getting. So if you’ve ever played it you’ll have no trouble getting started, though there are a few neat additions to the game. More on that in a bit.

Posted on April 20, 2014 by Jason Nason

Every so often I am tasked with reviewing a game that I’m no good at. It doesn’t happen that often as I can often find my way through any type of game. Sports, platform, action, shooter, RPG, whatever the genre I can get it done. This is one of those games that isn’t really hard to play, I’m just no good at it.
