Frostpunk is a very pretty game about trying to build the last city on Earth after an icy global catastrophe. I, like many others, spent about 25% of my time giving orders to build and gather and research, and the other 75% of my time zooming in as far as the camera allowed to watch my miniature hooded citizens trudging through the snow, or clustered morosely about the central generator.

Piggin' out Every now and again, the fine folk over at Hamster like to throw us all a curveball when it comes to their retro re-releases. Case in point, this week, as Jaleco's weird Buta San is been now available to download on Nintendo Switch.Released in Japanese arcades back in 1987, Buta San (also known as Mr. Pig and - brilliantly - Pig and Bombers) is a colourful action title which sees one or two players attempt to take out 100 fellow piggies by throwing explosives.

Players guide teams of nothing-to-lose prisoners - each equipped with their own skillsets - through a series of procedurally-generated vessels, completing missions and fighting it out with a slew of enemies.
Minus the part about guilt Folks, I'm back on my House Flipper bullshit.The long-awaited (by me, and other honest-to-goodness human beings, I swear!) Garden Flipper DLC is now out on Steam. The original simulation game tasked players with clearing out nasty homes, sprucing them up with new appliances and decor, and selling them to the highest bidder. Repeat that room-by-room, home-by-home process countless times, and that's House Flipper summed up. One major criticism was a lack of outdoor activities, an issue Garden Flipper aims to address – for a fee.
