Console Monster: H.G. Wells made one thing very clear with his 1898 novel The War of the Worlds, being that if Martians ever invade or attack earth, humans don’t stand a chance and we’ll have to hope pathogenic bacteria will do the job for us. This is where developer Other Ocean stayed true to the source material. This 2D side-scroller is far from casual; it’s one of the hardest titles I’ve ever played. I found myself holding back from throwing my controller across the room multiple times and most sections ended with me growling obscenities and insulting the narrator Patrick Stewart for being stupid and bald. Yes, this game brought out the worst in me.
