Grimvalor: Walkthrough Guide, Tips and Tricks

Grimvalor By: Direlight I confess I'm not the most skilled player when it comes to these hardcore hack-n-slash platformers. But I figured I'd save people the same aggravation I experienced in case anyone out there is having trouble like I was.

‘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 Gameplay Videos and Impressions

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…

Playdead’s ‘INSIDE’ iOS Review: Outside the Norm

Playdead's INSIDE By: Playdead Playdead’s INSIDE was one of the most recommended games to me this past year, and I’m grateful that I managed to avoid knowing anything about it until it finally made it over to iOS and I could play it for myself. While I did get through most of their first game, Limbo, a few years back, I never finished it. I eventually found the endless deaths too frustrating…
