‘Voodoo Detective’ Review: Island Ventures Adventures

Voodoo Detective By: Short Sleeve Studio Despite being a longtime fan of point-and-click adventures, there's a lot of them that I start and never finish. This is usually due to either getting hopelessly stuck and not wanting to look up answers, or simply losing interest due to the writing or length of the game. Short Sleeve Studio's Vooodoo Detective kept me engrossed to the end with its logical puzzles, swift pace and…

AppUnwrapper’s Favorite iOS Games of 2021 (GOTY List)

Appunwrapper.com turned 10 years old in 2021 and it's still a bit hard for me to process. I feel so lucky to be able to do this for a living. Thank you to everyone who has supported me over the years, especially those contributing to my Patreon. And of course to the developers who keep making games worth playing. This was also a scary year for me. My cat needed surgery and…

‘Sole Light’ Review: Send in the Clones

Sole Light: Cool Puzzle Game / Cozy Dystopian Puzzler By: Indeep Studios Sole Light is a new puzzle game from Indeep Studios that takes place in a dystopian setting.

The game looks great,…

‘Moncage’ Review: It’s All About Perspective

Moncage By: Optillusion / X.D. Network I knew the first time I saw a teaser of Moncage that it would be something special. I just didn't quite grasp the extent of its brilliance until I finally got my hands on it. There's a little bit of Vignettes in there, as well as some Gorogoa, the way you play with perspective to unlock new scenes. But Moncage pushes its mechanics to the limits…

‘Townscaper’ iOS Review: Like Putty in Your Hands

Townscaper By: Raw Fury / Oskar Stålberg I don't normally have a lot of patience for city builders. Even the game I'm spending the most time with these days, Genshin Impact, gives each player their own mini world to decorate as they wish, with tons of assets used throughout the game. Everything looks great and I see others creating gorgeous landscapes and villages. But I only place down some useful items I…

‘Behind the Frame: The Finest Scenery’ Review – A Bittersweet Ghibli-esque Story

Behind the Frame: The Finest Scenery By: Akupara Games / Silver Lining Studio I don't absolutely need my games to have a gorgeous art style, but it certainly helps to catch my attention and interest if one does. That was the case with Silver Lining Studio's new release, Behind the Frame, which claims to be inspired by Studio Ghibli films and actually follows through on that promise. It's a short game that…

‘What Remains of Edith Finch’ iOS Review: A Masterpiece in Your Pocket

What Remains of Edith Finch By: Annapurna Interactive / Giant Sparrow It was hard not to hear about Giant Sparrow's What Remains of Edith Finch back when it released in 2017, as anyone within the games sphere was talking about it. Still, I didn't want to play on my computer, so I kept my head down and managed to avoid any spoilers. When it came to the Nintendo Switch in 2019, I…

‘My Friend Pedro: Ripe for Revenge’ Review – Go Bananas!

My Friend Pedro: Ripe for Revenge By: Devolver / DeadToast Back when the original My Friend Pedro released in 2019, I was excited to play but also worried I wouldn't be very good at it. I played some on my Nintendo Switch and enjoyed it, but struggled quite a bit due to my lack of practice with a controller and the fact that the game utilizes just about every button on there…
