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)

Heads Up! Review: This Souped Up Version of Charades with Auto-Video Recording is Worth Your Dollar

 
 
 
 
 

There are some apps that sit atop the App Store’s paid chart for months before I get around to checking them out. I suppose there are various reasons why I might avoid getting on any given app bandwagon—in the case of Heads Up!, all I knew was that Ellen DeGeneres was behind the game, and…(Read the full article)

Afterlight Review: Quick, Powerful Tool for those who want more than a filter

 
 
 
 
 

Remember when everyone thought you were a great photographer because you discovered Hipstamatic first and knew how to “apply” a filter? Sadly, those days are in the past, and just about everyone knows how easy it is to jump into Instagram and make that picture of their kid smashing a birthday cake look like it…(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)

Fantastical 2 for iPad Review: The Best Calendar on iPhone is Now the Best on iPad, Too

 
 
 
 
 

When I reviewed Fantastical on the iPhone, I ended up finding my new, permanent iPhone calendar solution. Now, finally, the same app has come out for iPad, and I have a new permanent solution for that device, too. Fantastical 2 for iPad is every inch as good as its iPhone counterpart, though it achieves that…(Read the full article)
