‘Donut County’ Review: Life as a Hole is Pretty Sweet

Donut County By: Annapurna Interactive (Ben Esposito) I didn't really know what to expect from Donut County when I first heard it announced, but being published by Annapurna Interactive was already a good sign for me. They've published such games as the masterpiece, Gorogoa, the iOS port of Flower, and short but sweet Florence. I knew anything from them would at the very least be unique. Combine that with the odd premise…

‘Powerless’ Review: Needs a Jump Start

Powerless By: Narratio My first experience with the narrative choose-your-own-adventure type game, Powerless, by Narratio, was a positive one. After spending about thirty minutes with it, I wrote here how impressed I was with it, that it seemed very polished. I didn't encounter many spelling or grammar mistakes, the writing was strong, and the stories were interesting to me. I liked how you choose different characters -- or personas -- and then…

‘Unavowed’ Review: Anything But Mundane

Unavowed By: Wadjet Eye Games If you've been following this site for a while, you probably know by now that I have an aversion to computers. It wasn't always like that, but once I got used to typing on an iPhone and iPad, I could never go back to being chained to a desk. I still use a PC when I have to, but with an endless backlog of games on my…

‘holedown’ Review: Solid to the Core

holedown By: webbfarbror AB I've never been that great at Brick Breaker, and the fast-paced nature of the game kept me from ever sticking with it and trying to get better. Now that I play games almost exclusively on a touchscreen, I really can't see investing time into a game like that. But it's undeniable how satisfying it is when you get a ball bouncing around and hitting lots of bricks before…

Hello Neighbor: iOS Gameplay Video and Impressions

Hello Neighbor By: tinyBuild LLC tinyBuild's Hello Neighbor is a game I've heard a lot about over the last year or so up to its console release. But since I never expected it to come to iOS, I didn't pay much attention to its reception. That is, until recently, when it was announced for iOS. I saw the reviews for other versions were pretty terrible, so I kept my expectations low. Thankfully,…

‘Thumper: Pocket Edition’ – Some Thoughts on Accessibility

Thumper: Pocket Edition By: Drool LLC I had heard great things about Drool's fast-paced "rhythm violence game," Thumper, ever since it released on consoles. I loved the look of it, but it looked like it would just make me ragequit five minutes in. So when it finally made its way to iOS, I decided to pass on it, especially since I heard that it utilizes tilt controls, which I've never been able…

Darkness Rises: Tips, Tricks, Walkthrough Guide, Videos and Impressions

Darkness Rises By: NEXON Company I don't play too many free-to-play games these days, mostly because I don't want to be constantly reminded while playing that buying my way ahead is an option. I just want to play a game and leave my wallet behind. Occasionally something just looks so good, though, that I have to try it. The latest such game is Nexon Mobile's action RPG, Darkness Rises. I was tempted…
