I loved the look of it, but it looked like it would just make me ragequit five minutes in. So when it finally made its way to iOS, I decided to pass on it, especially since I heard that it utilizes tilt controls, which I've never been able…

‘Alto’s Odyssey’ Review: It’s Wall-to-Wall Excitement in this Off-the-Wall Adventure

Alto's Odyssey By: Snowman Back when Snowman's endless snowboarder, Alto's Adventure released in 2015, I lamented that such gorgeous artwork was being used on a runner, and not something more like an adventure game. It's not that I don't appreciate runners, but they're not my first choice in games. Despite that, I gave Alto a chance and had a great time with it, though I never completed all the levels. It got…

I Wish “Shooty Skies” and “PAC-MAN 256” Were More Like “Crossy Road”

I've never written anything about Hipster Whale's Frogger-like mobile game Crossy Road on my site before, but I have had a lot of thoughts about it. With the release of the recent Land Sliders and Shooty Skies, I decided I need to get some things off my chest about high score chasers. So I'm going to explore several games that have a lot in common. First, a confession, so there's no misunderstanding:…

Race The Sun By: Flippfly, LLC I'm not much of an endless runner fan. I usually find they stress me out too much and the reward isn't worth the trouble. But occasionally one comes along that's just so visually appealing that I need to give it a try.
