Halloween Bonus Slots

Scary Halloween Bonus Slots: Do The Monster Mash

As redundant an international holiday as it is, there’s something about the Halloween spirit that I find appealing. The orange and the black colour schemes, the masks, costumes and bonfires, the severed limbs and heads that randomly start appearing as shop window dressing. It seems no one can get enough of the spook. For the [More...]

Amazing Beat

Amazing Beat: Amazing Even Without The Beat

I don’t know if there’s much to DJing these days. Seems to me you just press a button on your laptop and suddenly you’re set for the night. You could probably not know anything about music, or indeed DJing, and with the aid of a Macbook and a pair of headphones, still manage to scrape [More...]

Duck And Dodge Like Your Life Depends On It With Ninja Rain

My mother and uncle have an almost allergic reaction to the stuff, with many a family walk being fraught with tension as ominous grey clouds gathered in the [More...]

Marble Mountain

Indiana Jones and the Mountain of Marbles

There’s been a couple of duff entries into the Indiana Jones film series, not least of all 2008’s catastrophic alien outing. Aside from occasional alarming nonsense such as surviving a nuclear blast in a fridge, the films have long been considered the cinematic peak of excitement, delight and childhood nostalgia.

Sygic GPS Navigation: World’s Most Installed Offline Navigation App

“You have exceeded the speed limit by sixty six kilometres per hour“, a calm British voice proudly announced to my train carriage. As I scrambled for the volume, a concerning thought crossed my mind; what if the app was actually referring to the train’s speed? We were going pretty fast. What if the driver had [More...]

Brain Guzzler

Brain Guzzler: Snake meets Zombies

I’d merely skimmed over the press release and was delighted I had. For about sixty seconds in to Brain Guzzler, the thrillingly bloody new game from Flaming Pumpkin, I had a revelation. ‘It’s Snake!’, I squealed aloud, to no one in particular. ‘It’s just like Snake!’ Suddenly I was fifteen again, grasping my Nokia 3330, [More...]
