Alt-Frequencies By: Plug In Digital / Accidental Queens Alt-Frequencies is a really interesting game by Accidental Queens, the makers of A Normal Lost Phone.

‘Magnibox’ iOS Review: Rules of Attraction

Magnibox By: Joseph Gribbin One type of game that there's no shortage of on iOS is Sokoban, especially PC ports. The block-pushing genre lends itself well to the platform, as it usually doesn't require fast reflexes, and the controls are mostly directional swipes. Some recent highlights for me were Pipe Push Paradise and Persephone, both games I highly recommend playing if you haven't done so yet. As a big puzzle fan, I'm…

The Gardens Between By: The Voxel Agents Back in 2017 when The Voxel Agents announced their dreamlike adventure game, The Gardens Between, I desperately hoped it would come to iOS.

‘Jumpgrid’ iOS Review: Five Finger Fillet Without the Knife

Jumpgrid By: Ian MacLarty You know that knife game you sometimes see in movies and TV shows, where some big shot tough guy quickly stabs the space between his fingers, trying to avoid mutilating himself? I wouldn't actually attempt that myself, but I feel more capable of doing so after spending hours with Ian MacLarty's Jumpgrid on iOS. It requires that same kind of finesse and precision -- which I don't usually…

SteamWorld Quest: Review and Gameplay Videos

SteamWorld Quest: The Hand of Gilgamech By: Image & Form Some of you may have noticed that I've started covering a few Switch games. Mostly, they're still games that will likely come to iOS eventually, so think of these as very, very early iOS reviews. In any case, I'll probably be dialing these back a bit this month since so many great games are coming to iOS over the next few weeks.…

‘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. So of course I was excited to hear that developer Loju was working on another game. Ordia released last week and isn't quite as…
