‘Ordia’ Review: One Does Not Simply Walk Into Ordia

Ordia By: Loju LTD Causality was one of my favorite games of 2017 and remains one of my favorite puzzlers. It has clever time-traveling mechanics, is extremely user-friendly with its ability to rewind your mistakes, and it's all tied up in a nice, neat package with pleasant visuals.

‘Oddmar’ Review: Just Eat the Magic Mushroom

Oddmar By: Mobge Ltd If you've been frequenting this site for a while, you probably know by now that I'm usually not a big fan of platformers.

‘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…

Candleman: iOS Gameplay Videos and Impressions

Candleman: Walk with Shadows By: 中手游 (CMGE & Spotlightor) Let me get the obvious out of the way -- Spotlightor's Candleman is a breathtakingly beautiful game. Even though you will spend some time in the dark, when the environments are illuminated, it's almost impossible not to gasp. When it was first advertised for consoles last year, I was blown away by the trailer, but I didn't have any expectations of it coming…
