Deckstorm may convert this non-card dude

The last time I wrote about a mobile card game (okay, it was more of a match-3, but I love bringing up this piece) it didn't go exceedingly well. I can only assume that someone at DeNA read that piece and thought "Man, Zack sure knows card ...   read

I got a cute ass shiba plush: Is this Candy Crush?

Candy Crush is like, bad, right? I mean, I'll still suggest to my mother that she should read a book instead of wasting time on that crap (talk about some role reversal), but it's difficult to dislike the game with any intensity. It would ...   read

Trip AT-ATs on Hoth and blow up the Death Star in Disney Infinity 3.0

If you're making a Star Wars game with pilotable ships, I'm going to want to zip around Hoth in a snowspeeder and tie knots around some AT-ATs. I'll also want to shoot down a bunch of TIE Fighters on my path to destroy the Death Star. We've...   read

Downwell has a simple premise but it's damn fun

A glance at Downwell's tricolor palette in still shots doesn't really do it justice. Watching it in motion gives a better idea what it does, but not until actually playing it does it all click. It is built around a simple mechanic: press th...   read

Mobile slot machine RPG Slot Revolution has strong hooks
