‘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 [...]

Are they punishing the player to make it seem more difficult? Is there anything between the puzzles and the player Read more [...]

Snakebird - If you've been paying close attention this year, you probably aren't too surprised to hear that Noumenon Games' Read more [...]

Aurora – Puzzle Adventure: Review

Aurora - Puzzle Adventure By: Silverback Games Let me start this review by saying that I absolutely love the idea behind Silverback Games' Aurora - Puzzle Adventure. I even love the puzzle design -- most of the time. It's creative, clever, and sometimes downright tricky. It's because I like the puzzles so much that I put up with a lot that I didn't like in order to enjoy them. There are so many things in Aurora that unnecessarily waste the player's time. There's too much forced between the player Read more [...]
