The Bonfire: Forsaken Lands – Review and Gameplay Videos

The Bonfire: Forsaken Lands By: Xigma Games As someone who liked the idea of Raw Fury's Kingdom: New Lands more than actually playing it, I was still very much looking forward to Xigma Games' The Bonfire: Forsaken Lands. My biggest issue with Kingdom was having to start over from scratch every time I messed up. It's hard to even know you're not doing well until you get to a point where you're…

Rogue Hearts: Gameplay Videos and Impressions

Rogue Hearts By: NINETAIL Co., Ltd These days, I tend to avoid games that have micro transactions for in-game currency or items, especially consumables. So I almost didn't buy NINETAILS' turn-based RPG, Rogue Hearts when I saw that you can buy gems with real cash. But I really liked the screenshots and description of the game, so I finally caved, figuring $0.99 isn't much to gamble on it. It turns out, I…

‘Alto’s Odyssey’ Review: It’s Wall-to-Wall Excitement in this Off-the-Wall Adventure

Alto's Odyssey By: Snowman Back when Snowman's endless snowboarder, Alto's Adventure released in 2015, I lamented that such gorgeous artwork was being used on a runner, and not something more like an adventure game. It's not that I don't appreciate runners, but they're not my first choice in games. Despite that, I gave Alto a chance and had a great time with it, though I never completed all the levels. It got…

‘Dissembler’ Review: Flip It, Flip It Good!

Dissembler By: Ian MacLarty At first glance, Dissembler might not look like much. It's certainly not as shiny as most match-three games on the App Store. It's made up entirely of simple, minimalistic squares and would probably be easy to overlook. It's also the first puzzler from Ian MacLarty, who's known for fast-paced arcade games like Boson X and Jelly Juggle. So when I got an email about it, I was a…

‘The Office Quest’ Review: How to Ruin a Game

The Office Quest By: Deemedya INC I wasn’t planning to write a full review for Deemedya's The Office Quest, but I’ve been raging so much about it on Twitter that I figured I should compile my thoughts into a review for those who don’t follow me on there. It's been quite a rollercoaster ride, as the game has the makings of what could be a true classic, but deceptive pricing and some…

The Room: Old Sins – All Journal Entries and Letters

The Room: Old Sins By: Fireproof Games Fireproof Games recently released their latest tactile puzzle game, The Room: Old Sins, and while the story is easier to keep track of than in previous games, I thought I'd collect everything in one place for anyone who wants to read them again without replaying the whole game. I think it's pretty straightforward this time, but feel free to discuss the plot in the comments…

‘Four Last Things’ iOS Review: Oh My Bosch!

Four Last Things By: Joe Richardson If you ever thought, "why isn't there a point-and-click adventure built out of old Renaissance paintings," you might be happy to learn that there is indeed a point-and-click adventure built out of old Renaissance paintings. Joe Richardson's aptly named Four Last Things has been out on PC since last year, but mostly went ignored by me because I hate those dirty, disgusting things. So I was…

‘Meteorfall: Journey’ Review: Swipe Right to Fight

Meteorfall: Journey By: Eric Farraro (Slothwerks) I spent so much time playing Asmodee Digital's solitaire card game, Onirim, in 2017, and it made me eager to seek out other games that are accessible and easy to play at any moment, but that require some tough choices weighing risk versus reward. Slothwerks' Meteorfall: Journey is the latest of these games and it combines the binary decision-making of Reigns with dungeon crawling. In Meteorfall,…
