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.

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.

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)
