‘Baba Is You’ Translates Beautifully to Mobile, Out Now

Baba Is You By: Hempuli Back in 2019 when Baba Is You first released on PC, I wanted to play so badly that I did so despite my general aversion to playing games on a computer. Shortly after that I bought a Switch, in part so I could have a more portable option for playing Baba. I made it pretty far between the two platforms and worked on a walkthrough, but eventually…

‘Railroad Ink Challenge’ Review: On the Right Track

Railroad Ink Challenge By: Horrible Guild I don't play a ton of board games these days, but I do appreciate when one adapts well to digital form, especially mobile. Horrible Guild's Dragon Castle is one example, and it was designed so well that I knew to be on the lookout for any future games from the developer. Railroad Ink Challenge is their latest and it's adapted perfectly to mobile devices, working in…

‘Overboard!’ Review: Malcolm in the Middle of the Ocean

Overboard! By: inkle inkle's Overboard! doesn't waste any time getting straight to the action. It starts with you, Veronica Villensey, pushing your husband, Malcolm, overboard while traveling by cruise ship to 1935 New York. It sounds like he deserved it, but that might not be how the other passengers see it if they find the evidence. So you need to spend your remaining time on the boat figuring out how to get…

‘The Longest Road on Earth’ Review: Life Simulator

The Longest Road on Earth By: Raw Fury / Brainwash Gang / TLR Games The recent lawsuit between Apple and Epic Games brought up the age-old question of what makes a game a game. Does there need to be a challenge? A score? I'm a firm believer that anything can be a game, but that doesn't mean that I love every walking simulator or never get bored by games with little interactivity.…

‘The Chronos Principle’ Review: Repeat After Me

The Chronos Principle By: Logisk Studio It's hard for a puzzle game to stand out these days, especially on mobile where there's so many new ones releasing every week. I'm personally drawn to those that make me work my brain but not so much my reflexes, and ones that have little filler. If I'm going to spend my time solving puzzles, I want them to be quality puzzles. Even with those criteria,…

‘The Sense Point’ Review: Breaking Point

The Sense Point By: Mikhail Ichshenko The Sense Point is a gorgeous point-and-click adventure made out of claymation, where you swap between human and robot characters to solve puzzles. The robot can squeeze into small spaces or fly up and reach buttons the human can't. The combination makes for some interesting puzzles and the art style offers striking visuals that are a joy to behold. I really wanted to love the game,…

Tender: Creature Comforts – First Impressions and Gameplay Videos

Tender: Creature Comforts By: Kenny Sun Tender: Creature Comforts is a narrative-driven game from Kenny Sun and friends, in which you play as an earthling dating aliens through a Tinder-like app. I'm a big fan of text messaging games and games that try to mimic the social media experience. So I was eager to check this out, not least because of the quirky art style and premise. Unfortunately, the game plays out…

Machinika Museum By: Plug In Digital / Littlefield Studio Fireproof Games' The Room series was so revolutionary, especially for mobile, that it's no surprise that it became its own genre.
