REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

Swords and Sandals III Solo Ultratus Screenshots



Swords and Sandals III launches this week on Fizzy.com. The third game in the popular series is far and away the biggest and the most ambitious yet, weighing in at some 12 months in development. The single player campaign, Solo Ultratus is out now, with a multiplayer version coming along in about a month.

In this incarnation of the game you can manage the careers of up to 10 gladiators. Duelling through seven brutal arenas, gladiators face a horde of new opponents including guitar wielding robots and gun slinging skeletons. Ten shops selling thousands of weapons and armour sets mean you can customise your gladiator just how you like, and with over 50 spells to cast, the fireworks are just beginning.

So gladiator, it is time once again to sharpen your sword and lace up your sandals. You have 24 Arena Champions to defeat before you can say you will be crowned the Ultimate Gladiator. Let the fun begin!

Despite the depth of the game, Swords and Sandals III retains its ‘Casual’ status by being quick to pick up yet difficult to master. An adventure played out in in bite-sized pieces, it is the Role Playing Game for the rest of us.

Swords and Sandals 1 and 2, and the spin-off Crusader game have been played more than 100 million times over the last 2 years and the series is sure to grow even further following this release.

“We’ve had hundreds of players champing at the bit for this one,” explains Colin Cardwell, CEO of 3RD sense, “the demo was played more than 12000 times in the first half hour after launch!”

He goes on to say, “Oliver Joyce, the lead designer on this game and the series, really has outdone himself - it’s possibly one of the most ambitious Flash games projects yet seen.”

A free demo of Swords and Sandals III: Solo Ultratus can be downloaded from Fizzy.com

The soundtrack and much of the audio for the game was mixed by Gabriel Castro and will soon be available on Fizzy.com as an mp3.
