Level 99 Axe Rage Is All About Acrobatic Axe Combos & Canine Buddies

ss_59c2274298bd3c37c296bae422fd2093469ef95f.1920x1080.jpg

Level 99 Axe Rage is a mixture of B-Movies and classic sidescrollers, aiming to have players fight against zombie, alien, and machine threats using an axe, an acrobatic protagonist, and his dog pal.

Players will work through stage after stage of various threats, running the gamut of sci-fi invaders with just the axe in their hand and a bottomless anger. The game's hero can really put that axe to work, too, offering several different kinds of combos that will send enemies flying, ready to get juggled even further by a skilled player. The enemies are equally skilled at times, though, so players will need to slide, wall jump, and keep themselves moving forward if they want to life to meet the next thing they want to chop up. Luckily, your dog pal might hop in to help from time to time.

Players will get a little tougher over the course of their journey, finding handy items buried in out-of-the-way cubbyholes that will increase their powers, giving them an extra edge against whatever monster happens to be fighting them this time. Overall, though, players can expect a constant barrage of over-the-top, kind silly moments from Level 99 Axe Rage, promising a fun journey for lovers of classic, challenging sidescrollers.

Level 99 Axe Rage is available for $24.99 on Steam. For more information on the game and developer Master Uomu, you can head to the developer's site or follow them on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.

Metal Gear Survive Review In Progress: A Harsh But Compelling Experience

The Papers, Please short film is out now

The Papers, Please short film is out now on YouTube (and Steam shortly). Have a gander at the 10-minute flick below.

The film absolutely nails the look, sound and feel of the superb dystopian document thriller, with a cool nod to the quick-fire puzzle element of the game. The wonderful metronome music from the game makes it into the film, too.

Like the video game, the Papers, Please film is a border control thriller. The unnamed inspector from the video game is played by Igor Savochkin, a Russian actor who starred in Leviathan and Night Watch. Like the game, the film is set entirely at the Grestin border control checkpoint, and references the fictional community country Arstotzka.

Fossil Hunters - Dig Up Bones, Make Your Own Dinosaurs

ss_0aaffa126e3bee0e0f907301023a141eeef7828d.1920x1080.jpg

Fossil Hunters sends players to an abandoned dig site, seeking the dinosaur bones buried deep within its dangerous caves so that they can cobble together their own colossal reptile skeletons. Mixing creativity and cavernous explorations, it looks to offer some delightful adventures for any dinosaur fan.

Players will be able to choose one of four different hunters (each with several coloration variants), joining up to four cooperative fossil hunters as they comb through several layers of a cave looking for bones to dig up. By finding the right combinations of bones and putting them together to make full skeletons, players will steadily unlock the means they need to keep going deeper into the cavern, finding more unique bones deeper down as they work to make some fun discoveries together (or steal the glory for themselves despite their co-op pals).

Not that you can only do what you're told with all of these dinosaur bones you'll find. As players uncover new bones, many of which are buried in certain types of dirt of environment, they can put them together however they like, creating silly or fun dinosaur creations using fragments of bones.

Fossil Hunters aims to capture the excitement of being an paleontologist, as well as some of the goofy spirit that comes with being able to put things together for yourself, offering tons of adventure and discovery for a group of budding diggers.

Fossil Hunters is available for $14.99 on Itch.io and Steam. For more information on the game and developer Reptoid Games, you can head to the developer's site, game's site, or follow them on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.

Jelly Deals roundup: Yakuza Kiwami, HTC Vive bundles, Tomb Raider Barbie and more

A note from the editor: Jelly Deals is a deals site launched by our parent company, Gamer Network, with a mission to find the best bargains out there. Look out for the Jelly Deals roundup of reduced-price games and kit every Saturday on Eurogamer.

Any week that gives me an excuse to talk about adventure games is a good one in my book, but this particular week has not only delivered that quite nicely, but given us a big stack of deals on top, just for kicks. We've got everything from Micro SD cards to HTV Vive to Barbie to go through today, so let's take a look.

As usual, we've got deals that'll work in the UK, deals that'll work in the US and some deals that will work in both the UK and US, as well as presumably many other places.

PUBG mobile analysed: top-end smartphones compared with PC

When we first looked at Playerunknown's Battlegrounds on Xbox One, it's fair to say that we weren't hugely impressed, owing to its cut-back visuals and remarkably low frame-rates. And with that in mind, the basic concept of the game being adapted for iOS and Android seems almost outlandish. But here's the thing: as compromised as it is, the mobile port works and in fact, the sometimes brutal cuts are essential in actually making the game playable in handheld form on a relatively tiny smartphone screen. And in turn, this may offer up some idea of how - in time - the PUBG Corporation could bring the game to Nintendo Switch.

Ian's already taken a look at the game running under iOS - on a vintage 2014 iPhone 6, no less - but we wanted to push harder, so we deployed the game on two high-end Android devices: the Samsung Galaxy S8 (specifically, the version using the Samsung Exynos 8895) and the Razer Phone, based on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor. PUBG actually ships with three quality presets designed to match the game's visuals to the capabilities of your hardware, and curiously, it also has three selectable frame-rate targets. It's difficult to figure this out because the title is currently available in China only and has no English text, but we've included a settings breakdown in our video embedded below.

The good news is that actually getting the game installed (freely and legally) is a piece of cake, and Eurogamer has a full install guide right here. Just be aware that the servers are geared towards an audience located elsewhere on the globe, so your ping may be high and PUBG's notorious rubber-banding and micro-teleporting may be more pronounced than you would expect.
