Icycle: On Thin Ice Review: A Singular Blend of Artistry and Game Design


There are plenty of simple, addicting games in the App Store. There are also plenty of games with amazing artistry.

Lords of Waterdeep Review: Scheme Your Way to Ultimate Victory


Wizards of the Coast has only recently started bringing the Dungeons & Dragons license to iOS. Their first offering, last month’s Dungeons & Dragons: Arena of War, was a disappointing Mobage retread.

Device 6 Review: Stunning Visuals, Creepy Atmosphere, Fascinating Puzzles… Five Stars!


After several years of reviewing games found in the App Store, the times when I get immediately enthralled in an app experience have grown increasingly few and far between.

I’m a rather frequent user of Twitter, and there is definitely no shortage of 3rd party Twitter clients for people to choose from the in the App Store.

The Cave Review: Quirky Puzzler Impresses Despite Iffy Controls


A spooky, talking Cave; an ecclectic collection of characters; and a non-linear puzzle quest. These are the elements that make up The Cave, a quirky adventure game that recently hit the App Store.
