SteamWorld Quest: Review and Gameplay Videos

SteamWorld Quest: The Hand of Gilgamech By: Image & Form Some of you may have noticed that I've started covering a few Switch games. Mostly, they're still games that will likely come to iOS eventually, so think of these as very, very early iOS reviews. In any case, I'll probably be dialing these back a bit this month since so many great games are coming to iOS over the next few weeks.…

‘Astrologaster’ Review: Huzzah! Huzzah!

Astrologaster By: Nyamyam If someone asked what my astrological sign is and then tried to tell me what it means and how our two signs relate to each other, I might go along with it, but would be internally screaming and looking for a way to change the subject. So you might say I'm the target audience for the narrative choice-based game, Astrologaster, by Tengami developer Nyamyam. It pokes fun at the…

‘Alien: Blackout’ Review – In Space, No One Can Hear You Groan

Alien: Blackout By: D3PA I really wanted to like Alien: Blackout, even if just to prove to all the naysayers that a mobile Alien game can be truly fun and well-designed -- especially one without any ads or in-app purchases. And at first, it seemed like that would actually happen. The overall concept sounds like a perfect fit for the both the franchise and touchscreens -- monitoring the xenomorph through different camera…

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…
