‘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…

‘Slydris 2’ Review: All the Pieces Come Together

Slydris 2 By: Radiangames While I adore my iPad and all the adventure games I've played on that nice big screen, my first love is still my iPhone. It's basically glued to my hand, so by default any games that easily play with one hand in portrait mode are going to get more of my attention. And that means that I'm always on the lookout for relaxed, endless puzzle games that can…

‘Fidel Dungeon Rescue’ iOS Review: I Woof This Game

Fidel Dungeon Rescue By: Daniel Benmergui Just the other day, I was thinking how there have been a lot of PC ports for iOS lately, but they all seem to be platformers and other reflex-based games, genres that don't always feel right on a touchscreen. I was wondering where all the puzzle games are, as there have been quite a few I'd wanted to play, just not on a PC. Then, out…

‘Where Shadows Slumber’ Review: One Lantern to Rule Them All

Where Shadows Slumber By: Game Revenant I confess that I hadn't previously played through the demo of Where Shadows Slumber that was available for the last year or two. Had I done so, I might have been prepared for the brutally violent story present in the release version of the game. On its surface, Where Shadows Slumber can be described as Monument Valley (MV) with shadows, but just a little bit into…
