Sailor’s Dream Review: Hoist Anchor and Sail Away

 
 
 
 
 

Simogo is one of the more interesting mobile developers out there. The way they play with the line between game and narrative, and the way they incorporate interactive elements to help pull the player into the story, is unique in the App Store. Their latest, The Sailor’s Dream, is another foray into interactive storytelling that…(Read the full article)

Five Nights at Freddy’s Review: Simple But Effective

 
 
 
 
 

There’s something just plain creepy about animatronic characters. Five Nights at Freddy’s, the surprise hit indie horror game, takes full advantage of that. It’s a simple game, but it can also be effective. The premise, if you haven’t heard, is this: You are the midnight watchman at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, a children’s pizza party restaurant…(Read the full article)

Banner Saga Review: This RPG is a Story-Driven Success

 
 
 
 
 

One of the more frustrating articles I’ve read in recent months was this one discussing the issues Apple and developer Stoic had over pricing for The Banner Saga, the turn-based RPG that hit iTunes recently. It was frustrating because the Banner Saga is such a good game, a real fine example of its genre, and…(Read the full article)

Valiant Hearts (iOS) Review: A Puzzle Adventure Game With History and Heart

 
 
 
 
 

Big games are … well, big. But sometimes, it’s the small studios who take chances on unlikely ideas and make awesome games with them. One such game is Valiant Hearts: The Great War, recently released to iOS. This blend of story, style, and substance is worth playing. Go into Valiant Hearts with the intent of…(Read the full article)

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.

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)

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)

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)
