Star Fox 64 3D review

Star Fox 64, also known as Lylat Wars, was one of the most popular games on the Nintendo 64. For the majority of the game, Star Fox 64 is an on-rails shooter, with the player in control of Fox McCloud's Arwing. Now and then (mainly for boss battles), the game switches to All-Range mode, allowing full movement in a large battlefield. It was great fun back then, but how does it hold up after all these years, with the 3DS remake? Well, fans of the original will not be disappointed, as not much has changed.

Glowfish review

Mumbo Jumbo are developers of "premium casual games". The same can be said for PopCap, who make the most popular, high quality casual games on the market, such as Peggle and Plants Vs Zombies. They create simple, arcadey games, but with so much detail and quality that it would be entirely justifiable for them to charge more than they do. Mumbo Jumbo may not be as well known as PopCap, but the quality of their PC title, Glowfish, instantly puts them in the same league.
