My Week Unwrapped: December 5, 2018 – CHUCHEL, Twinfold, The Butterfly’s Dream, Faraway 4, Calculator 2, Marbloid, Conduits, Don’t Trip and More

Hi everyone and welcome back to My Week Unwrapped, where I discuss all the games I've been playing over the last seven days. Despite discovering that 24 is available on Hulu after it was removed from Amazon Prime while I was halfway through the first season, I still managed to play a ton of games this week. I also wrote several reviews and walkthroughs, so I've been quite busy. So let's not…

‘CHUCHEL,’ I Ch-Ch-Choose You (iOS Review)

CHUCHEL By: Amanita Design Amanita Design's Samorost 3 was one of my favorite games of 2016, and it's still one of my favorite point-and-click adventures ever. One thing that stood out to me was the number of little details in each scene and objects to interact with that weren't necessarily related to the puzzles. For instance, in a forest scene, there were three cicadas that you can tap on to get them…

‘ELOH’ Review: Reflection Perfection

ELOH By: Broken Rules As a puzzle fan, there are some that I gravitate to over others, those that have the ability to hold my attention very easily. Reflective puzzles are one of my favorites, and if combined with solid presentation, it's likely I won't be able to put the game down until I complete it. Playmous' God of Light is one example, a game that combined clever mechanics with gorgeous graphics…

‘Where Shadows Slumber’ Review: One Lantern to Rule Them All

Where Shadows Slumber By: Game Revenant I confess that I hadn't previously played through the demo of Where Shadows Slumber that was available for the last year or two. Had I done so, I might have been prepared for the brutally violent story present in the release version of the game. On its surface, Where Shadows Slumber can be described as Monument Valley (MV) with shadows, but just a little bit into…

‘Powerless’ is a Narrative Game That Asks You to Make Difficult Choices to Survive

Powerless By: Narratio Narratio's upcoming Powerless has a compelling pitch. It's advertised as an "interactive doomsday simulator," and its goal is to put the player into realistic life-and-death situations to see how they would react and whether they could survive. You play as multiple different characters as they try to make it out alive after a coronal mass ejection (CME) kills all power on Earth, causing mass destruction. Each character comes in…

Trism II (2): Gameplay Video and Impressions

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. That game is Trism, by Demiforce, and although I didn't play it, I gather from videos I watched that you had to slide rows of triangles to match colors. It…

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…

ARK: Survival Evolved – Gameplay Video and Impressions

ARK: Survival Evolved By: Studio Wildcard These day's I don't really have much patience for huge open world games, especially multiplayer ones. I like playing games on my iPhone because I can take them anywhere and play a few minutes at a time, as long as a game is designed well for the platform. Despite that, I can't really turn down a chance at taming and riding dinosaurs, so I decided to…
