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

I usually try some because the graphics are impressive or the game just looks interesting, maybe has a theme I relate to. But I give up on most of them fairly early on. The exceptions are those that use some platforming ideas but are designed around the strengths of…

You Should Be Playing ‘NoStranger’

NoStranger (No Stranger) By: Scott Mulligan It's rare these days for me to feel so strongly about a game that I need to write a post just to make sure people know the game exists. But the developer of NoStranger emailed me late last night and I was curious, so I fired up the game. An hour later, I was forcing myself to stop playing so I could get some sleep. I…

‘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.

Little Briar Rose Review: Stained Glass Beauty

Little Briar Rose By: Mangatar What you'll notice first about Elf Games Works' and Mangatar's point-and-click adventure, Little Briar Rose, is the art style that's meant to mimic stained glass, the kind you see in the beginning of Disney's animated Beauty and the Beast. But that's not the fairy tale being told here. Instead, it's a version of the tale better known as Sleeping Beauty, in which a princess is put into…

Replica Review: Dig Deeper. No, Deeper Still.

Replica : A Little Temporary Safety By: Zero Rock Entertainment (SOMI) My experience with SOMI's surveillance game, Replica, has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride. I was really looking forward to the game when I first heard about it and was disappointed when it turned out that mobile players would have to wait longer for it than PC players would. Then, when I finally got my hands on the game, it…
