Golem Rage: Gameplay Video and Impressions

Golem Rage By: Zuki Games  Zuki Games' Golem Rage is one of those rare unicorns, a runner that's a paid game without any ads or in-app purchases (IAP). It's also level-based instead of endless, so those who are tired of infinite runners have something to look forward to. I've played a bit and the game is it really a good fit for me, but I still wanted to show off some gameplay and describe how it works. After a brief intro in the form of comic book frames, you take on the role of an enraged Read more [...]

‘The Mooseman’ iOS Review: Let the Spirits Guide You

The Mooseman By: Vladimir Beletskiy  At first glance, you might think that Vladimir Beletsky’s Mooseman looks a lot like Simogo’s Year Walk. There’s definitely a lot there to draw comparisons between the two. The moose-headed man, for one.

Vandals: Review and Gameplay Videos

Vandals By: ARTE Experience (Cosmografik)  Cosmografik's Vandals is the latest turn-based puzzle game in the style of Square Enix's GO series, like Hitman GO (HMG), Lara Croft GO (LCG) and Deus Ex GO (DEG).

It raised the bar for what a mobile puzzle game could look like. Since then, I've been excited about every GO-style game Read more [...]

‘Candleman’ iOS Review: A Flickering Light in the Darkness

Candleman By: Spotlightor & CMGE  You'd be hard-pressed to find a game that embraces its theme so completely as Spotlightor's Candleman. You play as the titular character, a candle on two legs. He's on a search for meaning and discovers a lighthouse, then decides he wants to shine as bright as that lighthouse. He travels there through places like a dusty old library piled with books, a rocking ship with deadly flames throughout, and a forest bursting with colorful flowers. But most Read more [...]

Never Stop Sneakin’: iOS Gameplay Videos and Impressions

Never Stop Sneakin' By: Humble Hearts LLC Humble Hearts' Never Stop Sneakin' released a little over a month ago on PC and one of the complaints was that it felt like a mobile game. So when it made its way over to iOS this week, that wasn't necessarily a reason not to buy it. I was curious about its top-down stealth gameplay with simplified one-finger controls, especially since it could be played in either portrait or landscape mode. So I took a chance on it. The plot is intentionally absurd, Read more [...]
