U is for....



Yet another simple but difficult game Unirally's premise is so basic yet the game play can be rather difficult and tricky once you get into it.

As I mentioned the premise is very simple, you control a Unicycle and you have to race against other Unicycles the difficulty being that you have to perform stunts and tricks to be able to win the race as just simply riding along will not win the race by a long mile. You also have to know when to perform the tricks as just one simple tiny mistake will make you fall very far behind and drastically reduce your chances of winning. Later levels also start adding obstacles like purple slime that will slow you down or cut your stunts short again making you fall far behind.

Another mode that you come across is the stunt mode where you have a set time limit and have to gain a certain amount of points by performing tricks in a very tight space. The one I played gave you 90 seconds to obtain 137 points which is not an easy task. If you manage to find a copy of Unirally I would recommend giving it a shot.

Within the 15 minutes: Had won three races.

Will I play it again? Yes I will.

Urban Strike


Urban Strike is the third in the Strike series and whilst it doesn’t really seem that much has changed it is still a good enough game.

If you have ever played any of the Strike games then you will know exactly what to expect from the game if for some reason you have never played a game in the Strike series then I will give an explanation. You control a helicopter in a 2D view and must fly around completing missions that may involve destroying enemy ships, bridges, killing enemy soldiers or rescuing people who may hold vital information. Your helicopter has three types of weapons including missiles and a machine gun type weapon, that is the only weapon that doesn’t run out at any point.

Along with your weapons running out your armour and fuel can also run out meaning that death will occur afterwards. Obviously losing all armour will kill you but if you run out of fuel your helicopter will drop from the sky killing you. Luckily there are enough weapon crates, armour and fuel drums around the level to keep you in business. If you have played the Strike games before and like me not this one you will enjoy it, if you have never played one before you will still enjoy it.

Within the 15 minutes: Still on the first level.

Will I play it again? Definitely.
