‘Technobabylon’ iOS Review: Plug in Your Wetware and Get Pulled into a Trance

Technobabylon By: Wadjet Eye Games & Technocrat As much as I like point-and-click adventures, I can be a bit particular with my tastes. Getting stuck too often for too long can turn me off from a game I'm otherwise enjoying, especially if the answers seem illogical or the puzzles require too much guesswork to solve. Layout usually plays a part in this, as well. Is the game user-friendly as far as making it easy to access available locations and items? Or is it a chore? Being able to quickly get Read more [...]

‘Swim Out’ Review: These Are Dangerous Waters

Swim Out By: Lozange Lab My first few days with Lozange Lab's Swim Out involved a lot of rage quitting. I've come to expect certain things from puzzle games, and one of those is an undo button.

Still, there was something so compelling about Swim Out and I persisted enough to get through the first four chapters, collecting all the stars. I'm not sure if I'll Read more [...]

‘Linelight’ iOS Review: This Engrossing Puzzler Deserves the Limelight

Linelight By: BT Productions (My Dog Zorro) I heard about Brett Taylor's (aka My Dog Zorro) minimalistic puzzler, Linelight, briefly when it arrived on PC earlier this year. It looked interesting, but since I don't have much patience for playing on my PC, I forgot all about it. I didn't even know that the developer was porting it over to mobile until I saw it available in the App Store this week. I still didn't know that much about it, but it got a lot of praise on other platforms and $1.99 is Read more [...]
