‘Golf Peaks’ Review: Mulling Over Mulligans

Golf Peaks By: Lukasz Spierewka / Afterburn Games I have a strange relationship with golf. I enjoyed playing miniature golf as a kid on family outings. And I've even tried some regular golf and didn't find it completely terrible. I still wouldn't make it a hobby, though. And you wouldn't be able to pay me to watch someone else play the sport. That said, I acknowledge that it translates well to video…

‘Into The Dark : Narakan’ Review – The Scariest Monsters Are the Bugs

Into The Dark : Narakan By: ORC PUNK, LLC I'd been looking forward to Into The Dark : Narakan ever since it appeared in the pre-order section of the App Store, as its stylish minimalistic artwork helped it stand out. I also liked the idea of a portrait mode, turn-based adventure game with roguelike elements. Knowing there was an endless mode also got me excited, as often I get absorbed in a…

‘Persephone’ Review : Let Nature Take Its Corpse

Persephone By: Plug In Digital / Momo-pi I was cautiously optimistic about trying the new mobile puzzler simply titled Persephone, named after the Greek queen of the Underworld. I loved the idea of killing yourself as part of the puzzle, and the artwork looked bright and polished.

‘Euclidean Skies’ Review: Here There Be Dragons

Euclidean Skies By: kunabi brother GmbH / Miro Straka I'll be honest here. As much as I like puzzle games, I've never been very good at Rubik's Cube. So when Miro Straka's Euclidean Lands released last year, I was excited about it, as it was a very unique game, but I had a bit of a rough time with some of the harder levels, especially the bosses. I eventually managed to complete…

‘Fidel Dungeon Rescue’ iOS Review: I Woof This Game

Fidel Dungeon Rescue By: Daniel Benmergui Just the other day, I was thinking how there have been a lot of PC ports for iOS lately, but they all seem to be platformers and other reflex-based games, genres that don't always feel right on a touchscreen. I was wondering where all the puzzle games are, as there have been quite a few I'd wanted to play, just not on a PC. Then, out…

‘Reigns: Game of Thrones’ Review – Reigns of Castamere

Reigns: Game of Thrones By: Devolver Digital / Nerial In 2016, Nerial's first Reigns game took the world by storm with its super simple controls that felt perfect for touchscreens -- just swipe left or right to make choices. Combined with a challenging high score-chasing gameplay loop and cryptic meta game to uncover if you manage to follow all the clues, there's something for everyone. The basic premise is that you're a…

‘ELOH’ Review: Reflection Perfection

ELOH By: Broken Rules As a puzzle fan, there are some that I gravitate to over others, those that have the ability to hold my attention very easily. Reflective puzzles are one of my favorites, and if combined with solid presentation, it's likely I won't be able to put the game down until I complete it. Playmous' God of Light is one example, a game that combined clever mechanics with gorgeous graphics…

‘Chroniric XIX’ Review: Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey

Chroniric XIX By: Plug In Digital Ever since the narrative choice-based game, Lifeline, became a huge hit, a lot of developers have tried to do their own spin on the formula. The idea is that someone contacts you from another smartphone or smartphone-like device and asks for your help. For some reason, you're the only person who can aid them. So, from the comfort and safety of your couch, you make life-and-death…
