Fourth of July, American Independence Day, is actually over, and I didn't really do much to celebrate it other than watch some Stranger Things Season 3 with a friend. But there have been a good number of noteworthy iOS games sales that popped up that are still in effect. So I'm going to list them here, along with any reviews or impressions I've written. I'll be adding to this as I find…

Apple Rejects ‘NSA Intern,’ Claiming “It Encourages Users to Fight Terrorists”

One of my favorite types of games to play is the satirical kind, the over-the-top humorous games that poke fun at current events and shine light on corruption, injustice, and absurdity. Though Black Vein Productions' first game, NoStranger, was in a different vein (pun intended), it had you solving puzzles using Google Street View and finding clues in fake blogs and music videos. I thoroughly enjoyed it and was looking forward to…

Don’t Just Wait for a Notification to Play ‘The Elder Scrolls: Blades’

The Elder Scrolls: Blades By: Bethesda If you're like me, you probably got excited last night or this morning when The Elder Scrolls: Blades became available to download after being pushed off for months and months. And after a short tutorial like this... ... and logging in to your Bethesda account, you were met with a screen like this. It says that they're limiting access during the launch period, but to turn…

‘Dissembler’ Content Update Coming August 30th

Dissembler By: Ian MacLarty Ian MacLarty's colorful puzzler, Dissembler, is one of those games that I hadn't heard of before and didn't grab me from its screenshots, but I gave it a shot anyway since I was sent a code. It ended up being one of my favorite games, and a Game of the Year contender for 2018. I reviewed it back when it released earlier this year, and since then I've…

Apple Just Announced the End of Their Referral Program for Apps and Games

I really hate writing these behind-the-scenes posts, as it makes me uncomfortable and I never know how much sharing is too much. But once again, Apple has pulled the rug from under sites that drive traffic and sales to their App Store. Last time I had a big talk like this, it was because they decided to allow ad-blockers in mobile Safari. Now, they're not just indirectly hurting my income, but taking…

Alto's Odyssey By: Snowman If you played Snowman's endless snowboarder, Alto's Adventure, back in 2015 and couldn't wait for the sequel, Alto's Odyssey, to release, you're in luck because the game just hit the App Store a day early!

Chapter 4 of ‘Agent A’ Releases December 7th and It’s Huge

Agent A: A puzzle in disguise By: Yak & Co. Yak & Co's stylish spy adventure game, Agent A, released back in 2015, but that was only the first two chapters. I was still very impressed with what I saw and couldn't wait for the rest of the game. Last year, we got another chapter, Ruby's Trap, that packed a lot of puzzles into a small space, almost like a room escape…

‘Veritas’ is Glitch Games’ Next Point-and-Click Adventure

A few days ago, I posted a story about how I overlooked but then rediscovered a website created by Glitch Games to tease their next game. You can read that here if you haven't yet. Details of the new game weren't revealed yet. Instead, a fake company called Veritas Industries that has its foot in every aspect of, well...everything, said it was looking for human subjects for its Insomnium project. I wrongly…
