‘Oddmar’ Review: Just Eat the Magic Mushroom

Oddmar By: Mobge Ltd If you've been frequenting this site for a while, you probably know by now that I'm usually not a big fan of platformers. Even back when I still played games with a controller, I tossed Mario aside in favor of Zelda. So when it comes to using a touchscreen, it's very rare that I feel in control enough to master jumping platforms and dodging and killing baddies. Usually,…

Golem Rage: Gameplay Video and Impressions

Golem Rage By: Zuki Games  Zuki Games' Golem Rage is one of those rare unicorns, a runner that's a paid game without any ads or in-app purchases (IAP). It's also level-based instead of endless, so those who are tired of infinite runners have something to look forward to.

Never Stop Sneakin’: iOS Gameplay Videos and Impressions

Never Stop Sneakin' By: Humble Hearts LLC Humble Hearts' Never Stop Sneakin' released a little over a month ago on PC and one of the complaints was that it felt like a mobile game. So when it made its way over to iOS this week, that wasn't necessarily a reason not to buy it.

‘Fortnite: Battle Royale’ is the Kind of F2P I’d Like to See More of on iOS

Fortnite By: Epic Games If you've been following me for a while, you probably know that I'm not a fan of free-to-play (F2P) monetization that change the nature of a game by penalizing you for failing and/or give a leg up to those who spend real cash. The App Store is filled with games like this, whether it's paying for extra lives or moves in a game like Candy Crush Saga, consumable…

Iron Marines: Walkthrough Guide, Tips and Tricks

Iron Marines By: Ironhide S.A. This is a walkthrough guide with hints, tips and tricks for the iOS and Android strategy RTS game, Iron Marines by Ironhide.

Interview: How ‘Linelight’ Was Adapted For Mobile

Linelight By: BT Productions (My Dog Zorro) I recently reviewed the near-perfect puzzler, Linelight, and was so blown away by how well it was adapted from PC and consoles to mobile devices and touchscreens, so I decided to pick the developer, Brett Taylor's, brain a bit about how he made the magic happen. While it might seem at first glance that the game could have just been shrunken down to fit smaller…
