Slay the Spire: iOS Review and Gameplay Videos

Slay the Spire By: MegaCrit / Humble Bundle One of the genres I've really gotten into in the last few years is the card-based roguelike. If designed well, they can be the perfect fit for iOS, since they focus on strategy rather than reflexes and therefore should be playable just about anywhere. Slothwerks' Meteorfall is a superb mobile-centric version that I still play every day. So it was hard to ignore all…

‘Twinfold’ Review: Twice the Risk, Twice the Reward

Twinfold By: Kenny Sun I'm a big fan of swipe-based roguelikes and high-score chasers that feel perfectly designed to play on an iPhone. It's amazing how innovative mobile developers can get using swipes as the primary input from a player. I don't know if Threes! was the first game to have the whole board shift with each swipe, all pieces moving in the same direction. But since then, many developers have incorporated…

Twinfold: Walkthrough Guide, Tips and Tricks

Twinfold By: Kenny Sun Twinfold is the latest game by Kenny Sun, and it's inspired by the likes of Threes! and Imbroglio. It's a high-score chaser, where you swipe to move your piece and all other pieces on the board at once. The idea is to merge number pieces so they combine into one bigger number, then eat the numbers to earn experience. It's not an easy game, and there's a lot…

‘Fidel Dungeon Rescue’ iOS Review: I Woof This Game

Fidel Dungeon Rescue By: Daniel Benmergui Just the other day, I was thinking how there have been a lot of PC ports for iOS lately, but they all seem to be platformers and other reflex-based games, genres that don't always feel right on a touchscreen. I was wondering where all the puzzle games are, as there have been quite a few I'd wanted to play, just not on a PC. Then, out…

Fidel Dungeon Rescue: Walkthrough Guide, Tips and Tricks

Fidel Dungeon Rescue By: Daniel Benmergui Puzzling roguelike Fidel Dungeon Rescue just made its way over to iOS after much success on PC and console, and I've been having a blast with it. I still have much to learn, since the game doesn't really tell you anything. I've even started over a few times to try and do better with the new information I picked up. Each level is randomly generated, so…

‘Meteorfall: Journey’ Walkthrough Guide, Tips and Tricks

Meteorfall: Journey By: Eric Farraro (Slothwerks) I've been playing a lot of Slothwerks' Meteorfall, as I got it a few weeks ahead of release and couldn't put it down. My current high score is 315, which had me at the top of the global leaderboards until a few people knocked me down a bit. But I've beaten the game with all four characters and feel I have a pretty good handle on…
