‘Vignettes’ Review: Much More Than Meets the Eye

Vignettes By: Armel Jestin (Pol Clarissou Armel Gibson) Vignettes, Pol Clarissou's and Armel Gibson's "toyish surprise-o-rama," is a game I'd been looking forward to for a long time, though I wasn't sure how much of a game it would be. I liked the idea of shapeshifting objects, but I've played other toy-like pieces of interactive art that didn't offer enough challenge to feel like a game. So I kept my expectations low.…

‘Mushroom 11’ iOS Review: It’s Loads of Fun, Guys!

Mushroom 11 By: Untame You've probably heard me say this a lot: I hate platformers. It's incredibly rare for me to finish one.

‘Causality’ Review: If I Could Turn Back Time

Causality By: Loju Games As you might know, Snakebird was my 2016 Game of the Year. It showed me that a turn-based, seemingly simple puzzler can be tough as nails but user-friendly in every possible way. It made me more critical of the puzzle games I play, looking at them with fresh eyes. Are they just throwing everything they could think of at a player to make it seem longer? Are they…

‘Splitter Critters’ Review: How Did They Do It?

Splitter Critters By: RAC7 Games (Update, 2/4/2017: The game got some new content, discussed below.) When I got my first iPhone, it felt like magic. It still kind of does, but now it's magic I've gotten used to, that is part of my daily life. I don't often stop and ponder anymore how incredible it is that thing is able to translate my taps and swipes into very specific commands. In the…

AppUnwrapper’s Favorite iOS Games of 2016

This is only the second year I'm listing my Games of the Year, and 2016 was an incredibly strong one for iOS games. It was hard getting this list down to just ten or fifteen games, so I also have some runners-up. There were just too many great games this year! So, without further ado, I represent my GOTY 2016 list! Any reviews I wrote are linked to the name of each…
