Unlike with most fungi, I enjoyed Mushroom 11 growing on me

Mushroom 11 caught our eyes about a month ago, with its unique puzzle gameplay hook: the globular green collection of fungal cells is not directly controlled by the player. Instead, players simply click or tap to "erase" cell...

Four Sided Fantasy does both sidescrolling and screen wrapping

Way back in the day, most side-view took place on a single screen at a time, and often moving off the edge of one side caused the player to reappear on the other. (See: Joust, Asteroids, Mario Bros.) Then Super Mario Bros. c...

Review: Pokemon Battle Trozei

There once was a time when "match three" puzzle games were a rare commodity, but after the rip-roaring success of Bejeweled and Puzzle Quest, it feels like there's a new match title released every month. The craze kind o...
