“PUSH” Review: Keep Pushing My Buttons

"PUSH" By: Maciej Targoni & Michal Pawlowski You might know Maciej Targoni from his games HOOK or klocki, both minimalistic puzzlers that have no instructions and count on you figuring things out through experimentation.

Considering how much these games have in common, it makes sense that the two developers have now…

‘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…

‘Flower’ iOS Review: A Source of Inspiration

Flower By: Annapurna Interactive (thatgamecompany) I never owned any PlayStation consoles, so even though thatgamecompany's relaxing Flower released back in 2009, I didn't get to play it until it arrived on iOS this week, eight years later. I wasn't really sure what to expect, as I haven't played anything by thatgamecompany, even their most popular, Journey. I was a little concerned about the tilt control scheme, as I usually avoid games with…

‘Kensho’ Review: A Gorgeous Puzzler That’s Missing a Little Something

Kenshō By: FIFTYTWO What first attracted me to FIFTYTWO's new puzzle game, Kenshō, were the gorgeous animations and lovey music in the App Store trailer video. I'm happy to say that that the game delivers every bit on both accounts.
