Countermine Game Review

Professional tennis player, Jo Durie, said “If you can defend, counter-attack and take the initiative, then you become a more dangerous player.” In this game, every time an opponent gets the advantage, it can lead to an even bigger advantage for the player. The trick is setting yourself up for the big win and hoping your opponent doesn’t see through your ruse.

Tradewars: Homeworld Game Review

We have mapped the universe and know two things. First, it’s vast. Second, it’s mostly empty, but not devoid of life. Resources can only be found on certain planets and a race’s homeworld is more akin to a lifeboat than a throne. Survival is dependent on how hard you make it for others to kill you.

Take the Field Game Review

When you get right down to it, a computer is nothing more than a calculator. How it processes commands and renders graphics can be broken down into equations that involve zero’s and one’s. A computer virus takes advantage of this, finding holes in mathematical formulas that allow it to break in and take over. In this game, math is your weapon. With it, you can do critical damage.
