‘Meteorfall: Krumit’s Tale’ Review: Accessibility is the Real Hero Here

Meteorfall: Krumit's Tale By: Slothwerks / Eric Farraro I didn't grow up playing Magic the Gathering and its ilk, so I never really developed that skill of finding synergy between cards and constructing a powerful deck. But there's been a surge of deck-building roguelikes in recent years in the digital space and they're such a great fit for touchscreen devices, that I can't help myself but try them all out. Slothwerks' Meteorfall:…

Slay the Spire: iOS Review and Gameplay Videos

Slay the Spire By: MegaCrit / Humble Bundle One of the genres I've really gotten into in the last few years is the card-based roguelike. If designed well, they can be the perfect fit for iOS, since they focus on strategy rather than reflexes and therefore should be playable just about anywhere. Slothwerks' Meteorfall is a superb mobile-centric version that I still play every day. So it was hard to ignore all…

‘Unhatched’ Review and Walkthrough

Unhatched By: Filip Loster I first mentioned Filip Loster's card-based puzzler, Unhatched, several weeks back in my preview, and have since had a chance to play through the whole game. It's a bit of a cross between Reigns and Meteorfall, but with its own unique story and mechanics. What really sets it apart, though, is that each card battle is a hand-crafted puzzle with a solution. Instead of the cards being randomized,…

‘Unhatched’ is a Clever Reigns-Inspired Game Coming to iOS August 14 (Preview Inside)

Unhatched By: Filip Loster Ever since the Tinder-inspired Reigns released, many developers have realized that binary choices make great one-handed mobile games. The high score-chasing dungeon crawler, Meteorfall, applies this concept to monster battles and is one of my all-time favorite games. I still check in every day to play the daily challenge. So when I heard of another contender entering the ring, called Unhatched, my ears perked up. Developed by Filip…
