‘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…

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.

Bloki: Gameplay Video and Impressions

Bloki By: Maksymilian Michalski Im always eager to try new puzzle games, especially when they look so different from anything I've ever played that I'm not entirely sure what's happening in the trailer. Bloki is one such game, and it also has portrait move going for it, so it can be played with one hand. In case you were also confused by the trailer, let me explain how it works. Basically, you're…

I Tried ‘Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery’ So You Don’t Have To – Gameplay and Impressions

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery By: Jam City, Inc. I admittedly didn't have very high hopes for Jam City's Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, knowing it's free-to-play game with plenty of micro transactions. Just by seeing how many in-app purchases (IAPs) the game already sold, I could tell it would be a problem. But part of me -- the Harry Potter fan part -- was still hoping that a juggernaut like Warner Bros.' massively…
