uDraw Tablet for the Xbox 360 and PS3

We recently reviewed the uDraw Game Tablet for Wii and thought it was a solid piece of gaming hardware awarding it 6 out of 10. Now Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 owners can now look forward to getting their very own uDraw tablets courtesy of THQ later this year. This time the tablet comes in a very sleek looking charcoal black colour and comes bundled with the brand new version of uDraw Studio (called Instant Artist) and has many new features including: High Definition – Utilizing the full capacity of PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, users can play, draw, print,...

uDraw Studio review

Nintendo consoles have certainly never been strangers to unusual attachments in the past and this tradition has carried well on into the 21st Century. Remember Rob the Robot, The Super Scope, The Gamecube Bongos and the Wii Balance Board? Is there anything that Nintendo cannot design to be plugged into the controller socket? Now it’s the turn of THQ to get in on the act and bring a new peripheral to the Wii, intrigued? So was I. You may have seen expensive drawing tablets for PC’s in the past and thought they were pretty cool. I mean just think about...

Max and the Magic Marker review

Let’s start this review of Max and the Magic Marker with another one of my moments of reminiscing about gaming in days gone by. Throughout the 80’s and 90’s Britain was well known for its bedroom programmers. Back in the good old personal computing days of the BBC Micro and Sinclair Spectrum, it was possible for you program your own games right out of the box (providing you knew how to program or were willing to learn that is). This continued up until the mid-1990’s when game development finally became out of reach for a typical home computer user. The...

Colour Cross review

It’s good that we have this little bit of space to discuss Colour Cross, the Rising Star puzzle game for the Nintendo DS. It’s all too easy for budget releases like this to fall through the net and not receive any decent coverage. Most budgets really deserve this, but Colour Cross does not. Also, it’s far too easy to label Colour Cross as a simple rip-off of Nintendo’s Picross DS. And, yes, while they are both based on the same core game system, CC develops and adds enough to the original idea to make it more than stand out. For...

De Blob review

De Blob may seem like a brand new concept but in a way it has sort of been done before. Remember Jet Set Radio? In the game you had to spray paint areas of the landscape by controlling a dude on rollerblades – hopping from building to building and avoiding the police who chase you with their silly hats on. De Blob sees you controlling a bouncing blob, smashing into coloured paint pots and bouncing into buildings to change them from grey to blue, yellow, red, green or brown to bring colour to the world of Chroma City. Instead of...

Drawn to Life review

What with the upcoming SpongeBob edition of Drawn to Life hitting the shelves, I thought I should head back and take a look at where it all started, the original Drawn to Life for DS, yes I did miss it the first time around. Have you ever looked at a Video Game and thought, ‘Those graphics are rubbish, I could do better than that’? I know I have, and I’m pretty sure you have to. It doesn’t matter how bad our own artistic skills may be, we still think that we are so talented and could improve on something drawn...
