Pure Chess is a game developed by VooFoo Studios, and published by Ripstone. It originally released April 11th 2012 on the PS3 in Europe, and launched on other platforms since. It has now released on Xbox One and PC as Pure Chess: Grandmaster Edition.

Now I already know what you're thinking. Just how different can you make chess from real life? I mean, it's chess right? There's not really any way you could change the game. If you thought that, you'd be correct, because you can't change the game. However, one thing video game chess does allow is improvement, more so than real life would offer. Pure Chess offers the opportunity to learn how to play the game from beginner to professional, and allows you to play opponents that are better (or worse) than your standard family member that you'd usually force to play a game of chess.

As a soft reboot to 2011's Homefront, Homefront - The revolution tasks the player in a situation where the United States has been invaded by a more technologically advanced North Korea.

The game has a lot of ideas and where some of these are good, others just do not seem to work. The main aspect of the bad for me is the way the combat is set out. Initially the guerrilla warfare is quite refreshing and entertaining, you do generally feel that you are fighting a well equipped army. But sadly as the upgraded roll in you do not seem to get any better, I found that I had most times had to resort to stealth based tactics even though I was at this point in the game a well equipped soldier.

It was not long ago that I was at Resonate Glasgow representing XBLG and checking out the new Indie Titles as well as the video game competitions it has to offer. The event was a fantastic first gaming event and I look forward to the next one. But I also look forward to seeing Ant Workshop return with another title like Binaries.

At Resonate I had the chance to play Binaries having followed the developer, Tony Gowland, through the Scottish game development of Binaries. Having played a handful of levels and enjoying the subtle charm of the game. I am now reviewing a copy of the full game and all i can say is. It's challenging.
