Ovivo: iOS Review and Gameplay Videos

OVIVO By: Alex Vilassak (IZHARD)  I love when I see a game in the App Store that I never heard of before, but it looks really interesting and is reasonably priced, so I give it a shot and it turns out to be one of the best experiences I've had.

We then meet the detectives who are trying Read more [...]

Death Coming: iOS Review and Gameplay Videos

Death Coming By: Sixjoy Hong Kong Limited The Next Studio's Death Coming has a really clever premise and I was enjoying it for a while. The idea is, you died and now have to become a reaper (yes, kind of like Dead Like Me). But instead of just reaping specific people, your goal is to kill everyone in a scene. You don't have to do so in order to pass a level, only to get a higher score, so there is some forgiveness here. The problem is, I don't like games wasting my time, and this one does just Read more [...]
