AppUnwrapper’s Favorite iOS Games of 2019 (GOTY List)

AppUnwrapper.com has been covering iOS games for nearly a decade now and, for the past few years, I've been listing my favorite games of each year. I started my Game of the Year (GOTY) lists in 2015, and continued with 2016, 2017, and 2018. 2019 has been another strong year for iOS games, even if you don't count the addition of Apple Arcade. I also bought a Nintendo Switch this year, though…

My Week Unwrapped: May 14, 2019 – Jumpgrid, Magnibox, The Gardens Between, XOB, Shards of Infinity, She Remembers Caterpillars 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. You might have noticed I've moved this back on Tuesday after a couple of Wednesdays. That's because I have so many games to cover already, that it doesn't make sense to push it off another day. As I said before, May is turning out to be one helluva month…

‘Jumpgrid’ iOS Review: Five Finger Fillet Without the Knife

Jumpgrid By: Ian MacLarty You know that knife game you sometimes see in movies and TV shows, where some big shot tough guy quickly stabs the space between his fingers, trying to avoid mutilating himself? I wouldn't actually attempt that myself, but I feel more capable of doing so after spending hours with Ian MacLarty's Jumpgrid on iOS. It requires that same kind of finesse and precision -- which I don't usually…

Hi everyone, and welcome back to My Week Unwrapped, where I discuss all the games I've been playing over the last seven days. I spent most of the last week playing the same few games, and I've reviewed some of them already, so this won't be a very long post. Still, if you want a recap of all the games I covered or want to see which gameplay videos you missed, then…

My Week Unwrapped: May 1, 2019 – Ordia, Astrologaster, SpellForce, Sync Party Hard, Zombicide, Ailment, The Unic 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. Some astute observers may have noticed that I'm publishing this on a Wednesday instead of a Tuesday. That's because I spent most of yesterday trying to switch cable companies and Spectrum made it really hard to leave them. By the time I was ready to write my blurbs for…

Ian MacLarty’s ‘Jumpgrid’ Will Get Your Heart Racing on May 9th

Jumpgrid By: Ian MacLarty I absolutely adored Ian MacLarty's Dissembler, a chill but tricky puzzler with all the right quality-of-life features, such as an unlimited undo button and the ability to unlock all levels from the start. It was one of my favorite games of 2018 and for a good while the six daily puzzles were part of my morning ritual. But alas, it wasn't Ian's usual kind of game. He's better…
