‘G30’ Review: Is This What It’s Like to Lose My Mind?

G30 - A Memory Maze By: Kovalov Ivan  You know that puzzle that crops up sometimes in adventure games, where you have four dials and you need them all to point in the same direction? The problem is, rotating one also rotates another, possibly in the opposite direction. So there’s some fiddling involved to correct any over-rotation that happens.

Zero/Sum By: Sean Kearney  The pitch for Sean Kearney's game, Zero/Sum, is that it's a math puzzle game combined with the cheesy storyline of an 80's B-movie, complete with live acting and absurdity.

It turns out, the game delivers on its B-movie promises, complete with terrorists, sarcastic doctors, even a ghost! Unfortunately, it feels Read more [...]

Homo Machina By: ARTE Experience  This is a complete walkthrough guide for the iOS and Android puzzle adventure game, Homo Machina, by ARTE Experience. Feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section. Tips & Tricks: - Experiment! There's rarely any guidance in Homo Machina.
