Trism II By: Demiforce LLC My first iPhone was an iPhone 4, so I missed the early days of the App Store, including a very popular game that released back in 2008 on the very first day of the App Store’s existence.

DR.MEEP By: HyperBeard Games (Heckmouse) There are few things that get me as excited as a new premium match-three game free of ads or in-app purchases (IAPs). I even made a list of my favorites here. So when I saw DR.MEEP appear in the pre-order section of the App Store and noticed it was by none other than Hyperbeard, the

Another Saturday is upon us so it must be time for My Week Unwrapped! It’s been a pretty busy week for me, catching up on some games from a few weeks back, some new ones, as well as some upcoming ones. First off, I finished my walkthrough guide for Hidden Folks. If you’re playing it and are having trouble wi
This is only the second year I’m listing my Games of the Year, and 2016 was an incredibly strong one for iOS games. It was hard getting this list down to just ten or fifteen games, so I also have some runners-up. There were just too many great games this year! So, without further ado, I represent my GOTY 2016
