‘inbento’ Review: Think Outside the Box

inbento By: Lukasz Spierewka / Afterburn Games Lukasz Spierewka's Golf Peaks released last year and I instantly fell in love. It's a finely crafted puzzler and one of my favorite iOS games. I'm usually not much of a golf fan, but the clever way it used cards and removed any finicky controls you might expect from the genre resulted in a polished and satisfying game. So when I heard he was working…

What Remains of Edith Finch: Switch Review and Gameplay Videos

What Remains of Edith Finch By: Giant Sparrow / Annapurna Interactive Giant Sparrow's What Remains of Edith Finch released on PC and consoles back in 2017, and since then I'd been holding out, hoping it would one day come to mobile devices. Unfortunately, that day has not come, but the next-best thing happened -- it was ported over to the Nintendo Switch. As I personally don't have a great PC setup, the…

‘Very Little Nightmares’ Review: Very Literal Nightmare

Very Little Nightmares By: BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe / Alike Studio While I never played Tarsier Studios' Little Nightmares myself, I heard a lot of great things about it. So I was excited when a mobile prequel was announced, called Very Little Nightmares (VLN), developed by Alike Studio. Since it was being designed specifically for touchscreens in an isometric view and in portrait mode, it made me think of Monument Valley, and…

‘Whispers of a Machine’ Review: You Are What You Say

Whispers of a Machine By: Raw Fury / Clifftop Games / Faravid Interactive I always appreciate when we mobile gamers get a game at the same time as other platforms, especially when it's something that took a lot of time and effort to make. There's no shortage of free, shallow hidden object games in the App Store, but the full-blown, satisfying point-and-click adventures usually get ported over months or years later, if…

‘Photographs – Puzzle Stories’ Review: Capturing Humanity’s Flaws

Photographs - Puzzle Stories By: EightyEight Games LTD / Luca Redwood What does the word "photograph" make you think of? For me -- and probably most people -- it's happy memories. You take snapshots of your joyful moments to look back at them later, or perhaps use them to see someone's face when you can't be with them in person. In the Facebook, Instagram and selfie age, photos are used to make…

‘Tick Tock: A Tale for Two’ Review – Prime Time

Tick Tock: A Tale for Two By: Other Tales Interactive None of my local friends are really into playing video games, so my gaming experiences are usually private -- if you don't count the fact that I record and upload them to YouTube. While I enjoyed Runescape and some lesser-known massive multiplayer games as a kid, these days I prefer to just chill on my couch with my iPad in my lap,…

‘BACKFIRE’ Review: Evil Lies in Evil Eyes

BACKFIRE By: Joel Rochon / GRYN SQYD It will probably come as no surprise to those who frequent this site that I tend to prefer my games relaxed and thoughtful instead of fast-paced and chaotic. So if I stick with one that gets my heart racing and stresses me out, you know it's something special. That's definitely the case with the hardcore arena shooter, BACKFIRE. I fell in love from the first…

‘A Mortician’s Tale’ iOS Review: Die Local

A Mortician's Tale By: Laundry Bear Games Inc. Three months ago, the only grandparent I ever knew passed away and, even though she lived close to me, she was buried abroad. As someone who's bad at taking spontaneous trips, I made the poor decision not to attend her funeral. Without that closure, my brain hasn't fully acknowledged her passing and I also haven't truly mourned. So I understand firsthand how important it…
