‘A Fold Apart’ Review: Needs Some Ironing Out

A Fold Apart By: Lightning Rod Games Lightning Rod Games' paper-folding puzzler, A Fold Apart, was one of the Apple Arcade games I was most looking forward to. It has you folding photographs of a couple dealing with a long distance relationship, in order to connect broken paths and allow them to get to their destination. The idea of folding paper to solve puzzles isn't brand new, but it's rarely used and…

‘Heal’ Review: Sensitivity Training

Heal: Pocket Edition By: Winterveil Studios There are few things that get me as excited about a game as its art style. I'm a sucker for eye candy and shamefully admit that I've passed on games if their graphics didn't appeal to me. It's on of the reasons I took so long to try the horror game, DISTRAINT, by Jesse Makkonen of Winterveil Studios. But now he's back with Heal, a point-and-click…

‘Telling Lies’ Review: How Deep Are You Willing to Dig?

Telling Lies By: Sam Barlow / Annapurna Interactive Last week, I wrote up a very vague preview of Sam Barlow's Telling Lies, the spiritual successor to one of my favorite games ever, Her Story. I emphasized the length and scope of the game as, instead of one actress, we now get a full cast. The four main characters are played by Logan Marshall-Green, Angela Sarafyan, Alexandra Shipp and Kerry Bishé, and the…

Stranger Things 3: The Game – Gnome Locations Guide

Stranger Things 3: The Game By: BonusXP Stranger Things 3: The Game is the official game of Netflix's Stranger Things series. It's not available on iOS yet, but is on Switch, PS4 and PC. It follows the story, for the most part, of Season 3 of the show, so make sure you watched it already before playing. I'm already working on a walkthrough, but the 50 hidden Gnomes in the game are…

‘Baba is You’ Review: BRAIN IS MELT

Baba is You By: Hempuli / Arvi Trikari Before talking about Baba is You, let me give you a brief recap on my relationship with PC gaming for context. If you follow me on Twitter, you most likely already know that I hate being chained to a PC. Once I got an iPhone, it replaced my PC not just for games, but for pretty much everything. So when I say I really…

‘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,…

Tick Tock: A Tale for Two – Complete Walkthrough Guide and Puzzle Solutions

Tick Tock: A Tale for Two By: Other Tales Interactive Tick Tock: A Tale for Two is a really unique two-player co-op puzzle game where each person has their own device and the two players need to communicate what they're seeing. You can play either in the same room or remotely using some sort of voice chat. Technically, you can also play by yourself using two devices, but that kind of ruins…

‘The Stillness of the Wind’ Review: Long-Winded

The Stillness of the Wind By: Surprise Attack Games / Lambic Studios / Memory of God I always look forward to games that try to challenge the idea of what games are supposed to be. I like when they attempt to create a certain kind of experience through interactivity, worrying less about providing a challenge and more about making something that sticks with the player long after the game is over. Search-based…
