Kiwanuka Review: Tiny Teamwork Sparks Ingenious Puzzle Game

 
 
 
 
 

Since its inception, the App Store has become a place where some truly unique and interesting puzzle games have arisen. One recent example is Kiwanuka, an engaging Lemmings-esque game that offers a challenge unlike any I’ve come across lately.

Thomas Was Alone Review: Clever Idea Wrapped In Colorful Charm

 
 
 
 
 

As a concept, the idea of a cooperative puzzle game isn’t completely new. But Thomas Was Alone executes it in such a charming and memorable way that it comes off feeling completely original. It’s a singular gaming experience and I’m happy that it’s made its way onto iOS.

Godfire: Rise of Prometheus Review: Well-crafted, but Falls Just Short of its Mythically Huge Expectations

 
 
 
 
 

The days when an app could be guaranteed success by featuring some cute critters and simple gameplay may be nearing their end. If you’re Vivid Games, it’s time to think bigger. Much bigger. Perhaps that’s why the subject matter of Vivid’s most recent effort is none other than the Godfire Spark—an object said to be…(Read the full article)

Broken Age Act 1 Review: The Interactive Storybook-like Adventure Game You’ll Wish you had Growing Up

 
 
 
 
 

Those who have spent any time with an iPad are well aware that Apple’s tablet isn’t just a convenient mobile computer—rather, it’s a device that can change the way we approach any number of artistic mediums. If you’ve ever used a drawing app, then you’ve gotten a taste for how the iPad can propel the…(Read the full article)

Battleheart Legacy Review: Chaotic and Challenging RPG Fun

 
 
 
 
 

A few years ago I reviewed an excellent game called Battleheart. I liked the game, but I held out hope for updates to offer a little more variety and content than the core game offered. That never materialized — the game hasn’t recieved any sort of update since late 2012, when it got iPhone 5…(Read the full article)

Uncanny X-Men: Days of Future Past for iOS Review: An Action Romp With Fan Service

 
 
 
 
 

With the release of the film X-Men: Days of Future Past, it’s no wonder that we’ve seen the release of a Days of Future Past themed game on iOS. This is not an official movie license, however, but instead a Marvel-licensed adaptation of the original Uncanny X-Men: Days of Future Past. I’m glad it’s not…(Read the full article)

Warhammer 40,000: Carnage Review: A Bloody Good Time

 
 
 
 
 

Players looking for some fast, brutal action in the App Store could do much worse than to try out Warhammer 40,000: Carnage, the new game from Roadhouse Games. It is a straightforward game that makes good use of its licensed content. There’s nothing particularly deep about Carnage. There’s a brief plot setup — basically, one…(Read the full article)

Leo’s Fortune Review: A Singular Platforming Experience

 
 
 
 
 

Sometimes, I get depressed and dreary about the state of iOS gaming, with all of the microtransaction-fueled freemium crap, Flappy Bird clones, and Minecraft rip-off riffs in the App Store. Then a game like Leo’s Fortune comes along and renews my faith in iOS as a serious gaming platform. Leo’s Fortune is an elegant and…(Read the full article)

Amazing Spider-Man 2 Review: It’s Spider-Man, but it’s not Amazing

 
 
 
 
 

I remember a time in iOS gaming history when I eagerly looked forward to each Gameloft game release. In the early days of the iPad and the heyday of the iPhone 3S, Gameloft was releasing games a category above nearly every other developer on the mobile platform. Sadly, the Gameloft of 2011 is not the…(Read the full article)

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft Review: The Best Freemium Collectable Card Game On iPad

 
 
 
 
 

The App Store is awash in terribly expensive “free” CCG games. The Mobage model has infected the market, making any attempt to play an exercise in freemium frustration and wallet torture. Thankfully, CCG fans who just want to play finally have a recourse: Hearthstone, the World of Warcraft CCG that balances the freemium model to the point…(Read the full article)
