Here's how Miegakure's four-dimensional puzzles work

Miegakure has been around for several years -- and it's not done yet -- but the last time I took a real good look at it, the game was still rocking placeholder art. It's been a while. In all that time, the core concept of so...

SteamWorld Dig will have a cross-buy discount in Europe, but not in North America

SteamWorld Dig is hitting the Wii U on August 28th, and if you happen to live in the EU, AUS, or NZ regions, you'll get a 25% off discount for owning the 3DS version. But wait -- why isn't this cross-buy discount availab...

Super III is worth a look for fans of Super Meat Boy

Games like Super III remind me that, no, I haven't had enough pixel-art platformers yet and probably never will. As you'll see in the video above or .gifs on Kickstarter, the main mechanic here is protagonist III's ability t...

The Swapper is just as incredible on PS4 and Vita

Somehow Facepalm Games' The Swapper slipped under my radar in 2013. Even though I've owned it for a while from a Humble Bundle, I just never fired it up. Releasing on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita la...

So long, RNG: Gods Will Be Watching update adds new difficulty options

Reading through Alasdair's review of Gods Will Be Watching, I don't know if I could put myself through some of the game's horrors even once, much less multiple times due to failure. Deconstructeam's Mercy update should help. ...

This Humble Bundle is a good way to get Threes! and Eliss Infinity

Humble Bundles are great, depending on how many gaps there are in your videogame library. (Although, admittedly, they're sometimes so cheap even that isn't a setback.) But, ideally, you don't want to wrack up a bunch of dupl...

The Swapper is coming to the Wii U later this year

I don't want to spoil much about the game (watch the comments!), but The Swapper is a game that absolutely deserves more of a spotlight. It was previously available on the PC before it was announced for the PS3, PS4 and ...

Review: Sokobond photo
Review: Sokobond
by Darren Nakamura

Chemistry is governed by a definite set of rules. Opposite charges attract, like dissolves like, matter is always conserved. There are more rules than just those, but one of the great things about the study of matter and its interactions is that if one truly understands the rules and laws governing chemicals, he can predict outcomes given a set of preconditions.

In that sense, Sokobond has even more in common with chemistry than it lets on. Though it boasts that no chemistry knowledge is required to play, it too runs on a specific set of rules, and any player who internalizes those rules can find success in-game. As a fortunate side effect, any who spend time connecting atoms in Sokobond might just learn something about chemistry too.

'Infographics action game' Metrico lands on PS Vita next month

We've covered Metrico a couple of times before but it's only now, in the last big push before release, that I am starting to grasp what it's all about. This trailer helps. The game is full of infographics that "change based ...
