‘Gorogoa’ iOS Review: Simply Awe-Inspiring

Gorogoa By: Annapurna Interactive & Jason Roberts The demo of Jason Robert's Gorogoa was one of the few games I was willing to suffer through playing on my new laptop about two years ago, and I'd been eagerly awaiting the full release ever since. I heard that he scrapped a lot of his original ideas, though, for a more streamlined approach, and I wasn't sure what that meant and whether the game would still resemble the demo I played. Thankfully, Gorogoa far surpassed all my expectations and is Read more [...]

‘Reigns: Her Majesty’ Review: The Regina Dialogues

Reigns: Her Majesty By: Devolver Digital Last year, the stylish and unique Reigns released, a game designed specifically for touchscreens, where the main controls are simply swiping left or right to make binary decisions. I didn't review the game, but I still spent a ton of time with it and enjoyed it quite a bit. It utilized a novel idea that felt perfect on iPhone, then threw in a clever story, humorous characters, supernatural craziness, and some tricky meta puzzles. On top of it, there was Read more [...]

‘GNOG’ iOS Review: A Playful and Tactile Experience

GNOG By: KO_OP I'd been looking forward to playing KO_OP's GNOG on my iPad ever since I heard it was coming to iOS devices. Everything about it looked like something I'd enjoy. The colorful artwork, toylike puzzle boxes, and the quirkiness of the whole thing. I was lucky enough to play a demo of it last year before it made its way to consoles, but I had to play with a controller. While it did leave me wanting to play the game, I knew that I needed it on a touchscreen for it to really work for Read more [...]

‘Riddlord: The Consequence’ First Impressions

Riddlord: The Consequence By: Amrita Studio I'm just as excited as any puzzle fan to hear of a new game in the style of Fireproof's The Room series. So when I got my hands on Amrita Studio's Riddlord: The Consequence, I couldn't wait to dig in. Things started off great. At first, it seems like it will be just as enjoyable as its inspiration. (NOTE: This article will spoil some puzzles, as it's the only way I can talk about this game right now.) There's a table with a few things on it. A knife Read more [...]

‘The Inner World – The Last Wind Monk’ iOS Review: Blown Away

The Inner World 2 - The Last Wind Monk By: Studio Fizbin & Headup Games I was a few months late to the party with The Inner World, but it ended up being one of my favorite point-and-click adventures ever. With an adorable but quirky protagonist, tons of other entertaining characters, dry wit, hand-drawn cartoon artwork and top-notch voice acting, it was hard not to fall in love. So when I heard Studio Fizbin was working on a sequel, you can imagine my excitement. But there's always that fear Read more [...]
