Guild of Dungeoneering Review: Death is Just a Formality

Guild of Dungeoneering By: Gambrinous The fact that I finished Gambrinous' Guild of Dungeoneering despite many distractions -- believe it or not -- says a lot about the game. In today's oversaturated App Store, it's not uncommon for me to start a game and then forget about it the second another one comes along. Every week there are so many games fighting for my attention. Many games that would have easily grabbed…

Never Alone Ki Edition Review: A World Worth Visiting, Despite Some Issues

Never Alone: Ki Edition By: E-Line Media I'd been hoping that Never Alone would make it to iOS ever since I heard it announced for PC and consoles. As an animal lover, the ability to play as an arctic fox had huge appeal. I'm also a sucker for gorgeous graphics, especially of outdoor environments. I appreciate the beauty of snowy landscapes, even if I find them a bit too harsh to live…

Tormentum – Dark Sorrow Review: A Gorgeous Journey Through A Giger-Inspired World

Tormentum - Dark Sorrow By: OhNoo Studio OoNoo Studio's Tormentum - Dark Sorrow came out on PC in 2015, but I hadn't heard of it until I saw the Kickstarter for their upcoming game, Tsioque. I was excited to learn then that they had plans to not just port Tsioque to iOS, but Tormentum as well. I knew very little about it, but the screenshots alone were enough to pique my interest.…

Telepaint Review: The Puzzle Platformer for People Who Hate Platformers

Telepaint By: Acid Nerve I'm not a big fan of platforming games, especially on a touch screen. They usually require a lot of precision, and despite my brain knowing what needs to be done, my fingers can't always make it happen. I can probably count on one hand the number of platformers I've completed. But I just finished every level of Acid Nerve's new iOS game, Telepaint. It's basically a puzzle platformer…

Danger Dodgers Review: Whoosh! Tralalala! Wheeee!

Danger Dodgers By: Uppercut Games Pty Ltd I don't write too many reviews of free games, because I figure I can just recommend those I think are worth trying, and players can decide for themselves if it's worth their time. But occasionally a free game comes along that does everything right and I'm enjoying it so much, that I feel the need to review it. Uppercut Games' newly released Danger Dodgers is…

Epic of Kings Review: Just Play ‘Infinity Blade’

Epic of Kings By: Dead Mage Inc. I'm not sure exactly what I expected from Dead Mage Studios' iOS and Android game Epic of Kings. As someone who's invested hours and hours into all three of Chair's Infinity Blade games, I was hoping it might use some inspiration from those but offer some of its own original ideas. I wasn't a fan of Infinity Blade's in-app purchases (IAP) and ability to use…

_PRISM Review and Walkthrough: A Galaxy of Wonder

_PRISM By: Clint Siu I'm a big fan of relaxed puzzlers, especially those made specifically for touch screens. I also prefer short, unique experiences over eighty-hour games. So Clint Siu's _PRISM for iOS -- which is advertised at being about an hour long -- was a no-brainer for me, especially given the gorgeous visuals. The game is aptly named, as you play with floating geometric shapes that break apart and open up,…

The Westport Independent Review: The Start of Something Great

The Westport Independent By: 0010 (Double Zero One Zero) & Coffee Stain Studios Before getting into my review of Double Zero One Zero's The Westport Independent, let me first say that I appreciate that the developers of a game about censorship and corruption set no embargo on reviews. I don't know if that was specifically to tie in with the message of the game, but it feels right. It's also nice when…
