‘Another Lost Phone: Laura’s Story’ Review: A Worthy Sequel

Another Lost Phone: Laura's Story By: Plug In Digital (Accidental Queens) Accidental Queens' A Normal Lost Phone was unique not just because it's one of a rare few games that mimic an entire smartphone, but because of the sensitive topic it explores. Without giving too much away, I will say that it was about teenagers and finding one's way in life, where one can be themselves and comfortable in their skin. It was clear to me that the developers were coming from a positive place and trying to Read more [...]

My Painful Journey With ‘Uri: The Sprout of Lotus Creek’

Uri: The Sprout of Lotus Creek By: 中手游 (Dream Tree) I'd been cautiously keeping an eye on Dream Tree's puzzle platformer, Uri: The Sprout of Lotus Creek up to its release. The teaser videos didn't give a good idea what the game would be like, but I was curious about the cencept of using the user interface (UI) as controls. I also liked the look of the game, as it has that Monument Valley vibe to it. Since it released at only $1.99, I decided to take a chance on it despite my limited knowledge Read more [...]

‘Lynk.’ Review: A Draw-some Puzzler

Lynk. By: Michael Le Based on appearances, I almost ignored the new line-drawing puzzler, Lynk. It really doesn't look like much on the surface, and I don't think screenshots -- especially mine -- with their scribbly lines will sell it any better. But developer Michael Le sent me a code, so I gave it a try. And I couldn't put it down until I completed all one-hundred-and-thirty levels. There is no tutorial in Lynk. When you boot it up, you're shown two blue circles and left to your own devices Read more [...]

‘Little Red Lie’ iOS Review: Life’s Not Fair

Little Red Lie By: WZO Games Inc. (Will O'Neill) Will O'Neill's Little Red Lie is not an easy game to get through. And I don't mean that the gameplay is challenging. In fact, it has very little gameplay to it and I imagine many would not consider it a game at all, rather more of an interactive novel. But even the interactivity is minimal. No, what I mean is that the subject matter and story are emotionally draining. And it's not a short game, either, considering it's mostly text. The game takes Read more [...]
