0h h1

11-24-2014

I have always been an unapologetic fan of Minesweeper. I have been playing it for longer than any other single game, and I will be playing it as long as I can imagine. It never changes in any fundamental way, but it always wo...


 

0h n0

02-13-2015

Late last year I was turned on to 0h h1, a free digital version of the Japanese logic puzzle Takuzu. Developer Martin Kool of Q42 is at it again. 0h n0 is another adaptation, this time taking the puzzle Kuromasu and giving it...


 

1-bit Ninja

03-26-2012

A Lite [free] version of 1-Bit Ninja has just hit the App Store. Despite the fact that it's a precision based platformer, the game actually works incredibly well considering the touch-based control method, and heark...

12-30-2013

Half Minute Hero director Kotaro Yoshida has returned with a new deconstruction of the Japanese role-playing game called 100-Turn Hero. Like Yoshida's previous work, 100-Turn Hero sports exaggerated pixel art and limits ...

02-20-2015

On a few separate occasions this year, I've been reminded that Rez exists and felt a flood of guilt after recalling how long it's been since I last played this ridiculously cool sequence (too long). A new Rez, or Rez HD on c...

999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors

03-17-2014

What really is a game, anyway? This is a question that bothers a lot of insecure people with insignificant things to argue about. Actually, when 999 came out on iOS in Japan we learned it had removed the "escape the room" puz...


 

A Game with Balls

08-04-2011

This is A Game with Balls, just released for iOS and Android devices. You control a cannon which fires at oncoming objects, pushing them away to prevent collisions. The cannon can be fired either with touch or tilt controls ...


 

AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!!

08-31-2012

I still remember reading about AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! (Force = Mass x Acceleration) for the first time three years ago, compliments of Anthony Burch's Indie Nation series. As a general rule, I'm a hug fan of free-f...


 

Adventure Bar Story

06-19-2014

It's a great time to own a 3DS, or any handheld, really. But there's about to be positive deluge of awesome 3DS titles headed to retail shelves, and Adventure Bar Story is one I'm hoping to see with it. It's headed to Japan f...

Adventure Time - Legends of Ooo: Big Hollow Princess

06-20-2012

Adventure Time is a great cartoon show, one that makes having a child a lot more fun than it would be if all I had to listen to was the screeching of Fairly Odd Parents every single day. Tapping very much into the Internet ge...

Age of Empires: World Domination

04-14-2014

A free-to-play, touch-based Age of Empires is exactly what none of us wanted but Microsoft is the latest in a long line of companies that can't resist chasing after the lucrative mobile market. This KLab-developed strategy title will hit iOS, Android, and Windows Phone in the summer. It's called Age of Empires: World Domination. Commit that name to memory, and stay away.


 

Age of Zombies

07-08-2011

Age of Zombies, a mobile port from the PSP, is free today on the Amazon Apps Store for all Android users and is a nice counterpart to the free iOS app that was also announced for today. Keep in mind a wi-fi connection is requ...

Air Penguin

04-25-2011

If you want to make it to the top of the iPhone App Store, it seems that the more birds your game has, the better it will sell. That is, if the gameplay itself is engaging, addictive, and fun. Enter Air Penguin, the new #1 iPhone game on the App Store. Air Penguin certainly has a bird -- a fat penguin, no less -- but is it really that addictive and fun?


 

Alphabeats

07-03-2014

Last year when Alphabeats was originally announced, I lamented that it was only on iOS, with no word of an Android release. Though it might not have ever released for the superior mobile operating system, it looks like the r...

Alto's Adventure

02-19-2015

It's rare that I cover mobile games here but I couldn't let Alto's Adventure slide by me. This is pegged as an "endless snowboarding odyssey" with a one-button trick system and 180 goals to best. Other things worth noting be...


 

Amazing Alex

07-13-2012

Rovio's first non-Angry Birds flavored mobile game is finally upon us, and it takes the form of Amazing Alex (which sadly, could have been called The Amazing Chad instead). If you're familiar with the Goldbergian devices of 9...

Analogue: A Hate Story

09-16-2013

Visual novels are cool games, but if there's a pet peeve I've developed with the genre lately, it's that most of them are PC-based. Visual Novels, dating sims, and the like are the perfect type of game to play on mobile and t...


 

Angry Birds

10-01-2014

The Angry Birds movie is not only a real thing, but it seems as though production is well underway, with a cavalcade of celebrity voice talent just announced today. The Columbia Pictures film will be directed by Clay Katis of...


 

Angry Birds Epic
