‘Campfire Cooking’ Review: Mmm Toasty!

Campfire Cooking By: Layton Hawkes Layton Hawkes got my attention with his first game, Puzzlepops!, an ingenious puzzler that features seemingly innocent candy that you push along tracks to goals. It was the perfect one-handed game, and I had very little to complain about. So I was thrilled when the sequel released with a Halloween theme and even trickier puzzles. Now Layton's back with a new game that still centers around sweets (I hope he has a good dentist), but takes things away from the Read more [...]

‘Stephen’s Sausage Roll’-Inspired ‘Campfire Cooking’ Releasing This October

If I got a dime every time someone told me to play Stephen Lavelle's puzzle game, Stephen's Sausage Roll, I'd have...about a dollar? But seriously, people keep recommending it and I keep responding "but it's not on iOS."

There aren't too many games to go over this time, but the lack of quantity is made up with quality! First off, I played through the deliciously creepy Rusty Lake: Roots by the developers of the Cube Escape and Rusty Lake series. Although I haven't finished all of the previous games yet, Roots was definitely one of my favorites. While many of the puzzles Read more [...]

Welcome back to the second installment of My Week Unwrapped, where I discuss all the games I've been playing over the past week.

First off, I dropped everything to play and finish Layton Hawkes' fantastic Halloween puzzler, Puzzlepops! Trick or Treat. The original was one of my favorite puzzle games this year and this new one offers more of the same challenge but with new elements Read more [...]
