Review: Picross 3D Round 2

Picross 3D is probably my favorite puzzle game ever. That DS gem was actually my introduction into the Picross franchise, having missed out on Picross DS and Mario Picross years before it. What I loved abo...   read


Review: Obduction

Myst was such a formative experience in the '90s -- a harbinger of a new plane of thinking in storytelling, pushing the boundaries of technical advancement and narrative-driven gaming. It defined a genre and set the stage for adventure pu...   read

Review: Human: Fall Flat

There's a special place in my heart for games that sneak up on me. Human: Fall Flat came out of nowhere similar to how Devil Daggers dropped into my life. Last month I played just enough to write a small preview, and I actually fi...   read

Review: Tumblestone

I can't think of the last puzzle game that had a color/shape-matching mechanic that I've genuinely enjoyed. It might be none of them, actually. I just never felt satisfied after completing a puzzle. I'm more of a candy eater than a candy cr...   read

Review: Quadrilateral Cowboy

Well, it's finally here. After playing through the brief-yet-amazing Gravity Bone and Thirty Flights of Loving, the third game has arrived. Don't be fooled, though -- Quadrilateral Cowboy stands alone in what it accomplishes. Not only ...   read

Human: Fall Flat is a wacky, fun, frustrating physics-based puzzler

Remember QWOP, the frustrating-as-hell human-body-haver simulator that was great fun? Developer No Brakes Games may be creating the next best thing by adding in bizarre dreamscapes and physics-based puzzles with Human: Fall Flat. At this po...   read

Brilliantly original puzzle game Tumblestone out now

I first played Tumblestone at last year's PAX East and was completely blown away. Ty Taylor's first game, The Bridge, is one of my favorite puzzle-platformers ever, so I expected good things from this next venture. I said it last year and I...   read

Review: Dungeons 2

Dungeons 2 is a heart-breaker. It has a lot of charm, some ambitious ideas, and a genuinely fun dungeon builder buried somewhere deep inside it. If it focused on its strengths, I could see it being a great, laid back entry in the dungeon-bu...   read

Review: Please, Don't Touch Anything

If you can't wait for Uncharted 4, maybe play the mobile Fortune Hunter

I haven't played Uncharted 4: A Thief's End yet, but Steven's review convinced me to pick it up day one. Somehow I had prevented my stone heart from becoming excited at the prospect of crouching behind cover and making quips while...   read

It seems lately we're in the Renaissance period for nostalgia and reimaginings of successful properties from the '90s. NightCry is one such game among this movement, the spiritual successor to the Clock Tower horror series which garnered ov...   read
