‘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…

‘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.…

‘IrisFall’ iOS Review: Shadow Play

Iris.Fall By: NExTStudios Light and shadow are common themes in puzzle games, and for good reason. They're visually interesting and can offer some innovative mechanics if done right. Iris.Fall, which originally released on other platforms in 2018, is the latest iOS game to take advantage of this. Though it doesn't always push itself to its full potential, the visuals are stunning and the puzzles were compelling enough to hold my interest through…

‘There is No Game: Wrong Dimension’ iOS Review – Strong Impression

There is No Game: Wrong Dimension By: Draw Me a Pixel Draw Me a Pixel's There is No Game: Wrong Dimension is one of those games that stayed in my peripheral vision for a while. I was slightly aware of it as something I should care about, but didn't really pay close attention until it was recently announced for mobile devices. The Jam Edition released first, as a short fifteen-minute taste of…

‘The Procession to Calvary’ iOS Review: Killing of a Sacred Dick

The Procession to Calvary By: Joe Richardson Games When I reviewed Joe Richardson's point-and-click adventure, Four Last Things, back in 2018, I had tons of praise for it and stressed that I would love to see another game from the developer made in the same style, using Renaissance paintings for all the artwork. That wish was fulfilled this year with the release of a spiritual sequel called The Procession to Calvary, named…

‘High Rise – A Puzzle Cityscape’ Review: Reach for the Sky

High Rise - A Puzzle Cityscape By: Florian Grolig Match-three games are one of my favorite genres to play on my iPhone when I have a few minutes to kill here and there. But I'm not talking about the free-to-play Candy Crush or its myriad of knock-offs. When a match-three game sucks me in and holds my attention, it's because it pushes the genre beyond what we're all used to. Match Six…
