The Game Of Life – Spin To Win

THE GAME OF LIFE – Spin to Win is a game based on the populair board game The Game Of Life. The game is made by Marmalade Games Studio Ltd and published by Marmalade Technologies.

Get your friends together!
This game’s focus is all on the interaction between you and your friends. The cards that you will collect during the game, all have some kind of assignment to do with one, or all your friends. An example is “Pick an opponent. Both play a drum solo on the table and spin.” (shown below). If you and your friends do these challenges you will have a fun playthrough.


There was some misunderstanding, because the developers tagged the game as multiplayer. Everyone thought it had multiplayer already, but the developers themself told the community there was no online multiplayer. Shortly after they told the community that they are working on online multiplayer.

I see this multiplayer working. It’s fun to do the card challenges with friends on vacation or just some good internet friends.


The Game Of Life
The game itself is pretty straight forward. It’s the game of life, with some ok looking 3D animations. It’s fun to play, even against AI.

JosWeb Score (0/100):
It’s a fun game to play with friends or even AI. The game is only 5€ and you will get a fun night playing this game. Maybe this game will replace the old board game you and your family are still playing sometimes. I recommend this game and the game will only get better with the online multiplayer.

Call of Tomsk-7

<a href=””>Call of Tomsk-7</a> is a sidescrolling shooter game made by Daniel Mercier.

The figures and weapons in this game kinda remind me of stuff that’s been drawn in Paint. It isn’t very beautiful to look at, but it gives the game it’s own special feeling.


Eventhough the waves of enemies you have to shoot down are endless, the replayability of the game isn’t. The game became boring for me after a few tries. The game does have an upgrade/unlock system which kept me playing for a few minutes, but I couldn’t find myself wanting to play more after unlocking the first few things.

This is a 99 cent game and there isn’t much to say about it. The game has it’s own style, but it wouldn’t surprised me if this was just a flash game. I have no idea if I would recommend this game to anyone, because I got bored with it after 20 minutes. If you have a spare 99 cent and want a quick game of random shooting with paint drawn figures this could be the game you’re looking for.

Trine 3

Trine 3 is the third Trine game developed and published by Frozenbyte.

In Trine our heroes will be able to move in all directions possible. In the older Trine installments they could only move from left to right and back. This is a great improvement, but sadly because the camera can’t be moved that well it sometimes leads to deaths that weren’t my fault if I could move the camera. It could be very frustrating to find all trineangles.


The game has a new level select screen. I like the way they redid the menu, but do hate the fact that trineangles are needed to unlock levels. There are 2 sort of levels. The main story levels which will have 150 trineangles and a 1 heroe only level which will have only 25 trineangles. These heroe levels can be completed very easily with all trineangles. The main story does require some search work.


Hand in hand
Like the previous installment, this game is funnier when played with friends. Eventhough I did the entire game within 4 hours alone, it’s still to have a friend to complete all the puzzles.

Maybe i’m just getting very smart, but the puzzles in Trine 3 weren’t as challenging as Trine 2. Almost everything could also be solved with Amadeus. When you don’t know how to get up there, just spawn a box. Jump on the box and jump. While in the air grab the box and move it up. Amadeus will now be launched miles into the air. If this methode wouldn’t work the puzzles would be way harder to solve.


I have the feeling that Trine 3 was rushed, after the developers got the 3D working. Trine 3 doesn’t contain an upgrade system like Trine 2 did, doesn’t have many levels (only 7/8 in the main story which can be completed in 15-20 minutes each.) and the story didn’t appeal to me like it did in the previous versions. It’s a shame, because I do like the gameplay.


JosWeb Score (0/100):
I like the Trine franchise and love the gameplay. I like the character to choose from and their skills, but there is something about this game that just doesn’t feel right. Maybe it’s the story that didn’t appeal to me or maybe it’s the collect trineangles to access a new level.

The game can be completed within 4 hours. It’s less than Trine 2, while Trine 3 offers 3D instead of the sidescroller formula. The puzzles in Trine 3 were pretty simple and didn’t had a moment in which I thought I was stuck.

The game is fun, but if you’re looking for a Trine game I would recommend playing 1 and 2 first.

The Park

Because this game is story-driven this review MAY contain spoilers! You have been warned.

The Park is a first-person storytelling horror game developed and published by Funcom.

Right in the childhood
Who didn’t love to go to Theme Parks, cuddle your favorite character’s costume and make a ride on that very scary rollercoaster.

In The Park you will be visiting a Theme Park which I would never visit in the first place. Atlantic Island park’s history turns out to be one tragedy and drama after eachother. People got into accidents, grotesque killings and gostly hautings aren’t that uncommon in this park.

After a day at the park Lorraine’s son called Callum comes to the conclusion that he lost his teddy bear. The player goes back into the park to search for the bear, but Callum seems to sneak in before you.

The player has to make his way through the park in order to find Callum and has to make rides to continue the story and the search for Callum.

Because the game is story driven we will end our little introduction to the game here and continue the review with our thoughts.


It looks so UNREAL
The game is made using the Unreal 4 engine. It shows, the game looks stunning and to be honest the rollercoaster ride had me thrilling. The only problem I had was that the game had to render grass and other little details while I was looking at it. This made the whole experience a little less entertaining.

I do hope that Funcom decides to make a “non-horror” The Park game because spending a day into a virtual theme park with these graphics sure is a nice way to spend a day. The envoirement is beautiful and really looks stunning when you’re at the top of the big spinning wheel.

The length
The only bad thing about this game is the length of the game. The game can be completed within 2 hours and you will have received all the achievements. That makes me question if the game is worth the 13€ (10€ on sale). It does give you a fun horror experience for 1~2 hours and it’s a really fun game to play at Halloween.


JosWeb Score (0/100):
I had some good fun and scary moments playing this game. Sadly the game is only 2 hours and because I received all the achievements I think it will take a very long time for me to play the game again. Maybe at Halloween next year.

The rendering of the Unreal 4 engine made the horror experience a little less, but that doesn’t take away the fact that this game almost made me wet my pants a few times during the game.

I would recommend this game, but maybe not at the 13€ mark. If I were you I should wait till a big discount or price drop and pick up the game for a fun night of horror.

Press X to not die

All seeing Eye Games comes with an interactive movie. Press X to Not Die is an live-action B-movie in which you have alot of quick time events and make some choices.

Short but gold?
I hoped I would like this game as much as Heavy Rain, Beyond Two Souls or any of the Telltale games. Sadly the quick time events that are mostly only doable in a few seconds kinda made the game frustrating. The story is cool, interesting and the choices you have to make are funny.


Balls of steel
All the choices you make will have some kind of reaction, sadly alot of those choices will result in death or getting hit in the balls. This was a shame, because most of the time I had the idea there was only 1 option to progress the game.

JosWeb Score (0/100):
This game didn’t work for me. I do like the idea of an interactive movie, but the fast quick time events made the game more frustrating than fun.

If the real release adds more content and makes the game more fun I will write a new review, but at this moment I don’t like the game and wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.

Let my review don’t lead you in buying the game. I have read alot of Steam reviews that were positive (eventhough most reviews don’t say anything about the game itself).
