‘Four Last Things’ is the Point-and-Click Adventure I Never Knew I Needed

Four Last Things By: Joe Richardson I've been a big fan of Hieronymus Bosch's The Garden of Earthly Delights painting -- specifically the Hell part -- for quite some time now. I even have a big book of his artwork so I could look at it whenever I want. One of the things I love about it is that there's so many little details. You could probably stare at it for years…

Explore a Creepy Dollhouse in ‘The Room: Old Sins’ Next Week – First Impressions Inside

The Room: Old Sins By: Fireproof Games Update: The game is now out. See my full review here. Fireproof's The Room series has come quite a a long way since we were first introduced to their clever puzzle boxes that felt perfect to manipulate on a touchscreen. From an entire game taking place on one table in the original game, to exploring a whole mansion full of rooms in the third, the…

Slothwerks’ ‘Meteorfall’ First Impressions

Meteorfall: Journey By: Slothwerks Asmodee Digital's solitaire card game, Onirim, was one of my most-played games in 2017. I just love how you can play a game in a few minutes, and there's no grinding or deck-building to worry about. Until the recent scoring system was added, it was basically the perfect mobile game. So I've been keeping my eye out for similar games, such as Miracle Merchant, and when I saw…

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…

‘Thimbleweed Park’ iOS Review: Retro Point-and-Click Gaming for the Modern Age

Thimbleweed Park By: Terrible Toybox (Ron Gilbert) As a point-and-click adventure fan, I knew I was supposed to be excited about Thimbleweed Park when it was announced, but I'd be lying if I didn't say I had mixed feelings. As I mentioned here, I didn't grow up on LucasArts games, but rather those like Broken Sword. So I don't have any nostalgic attachment to the retro art or old school action verb…

My Week Unwrapped: September 18, 2017 – Iron Marines, Typeshift, Thimbleweed Park, Actual Sunlight, Miss Fisher, neoDefense and More

Hi everyone! Last week I switched My Week Unwrapped to Mondays so I'm not rushing to get it out Sunday night. So far, that's been working great, but this is an insanely busy week for games that are both already out or releasing this week...even tomorrow! I'm trying to complete some games before release so I can review them, so my blurbs this week might be on the short side. In any…

Thimbleweed Park Coming to iOS September 19, First Impressions Inside

Thimbleweed Park By: Ron Gilbert Update: Thimbleweed Park is now out on iOS! I've heard that Ron Gilbert's Thimbleweed Park is inspired by the television show, Twin Peaks, but I didn't really know what that meant until I started watching the 1990 show about a week ago. While I'm still early on in the show, its quirkiness has piqued my interest in the game. And there's obviously some X-Files stuff going on…

‘Brave Hand’ is an Upcoming Card Game About Luck and Skill, Preview Inside

Lately, I've been very interested in solitaire card games that offer a quick play when you have a few minutes to spare, or a hook that keeps me playing until I lose track of time. Being in portrait mode and playable with one hand is a must if it's going to keep me coming back for more, as I tend to only use my iPad for long, immersive games like point-and-click adventures.…
