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

Donut County is a feel-good physics toy with flashes of Katamari Damacy

In Katamari Damacy, you roll up stuff. Small stuff, to start. Then cars, ships, buildings, mountains and, eventually, entire worlds. In Donut County, you slide an insatiable hole around to help it eat anything it can fit inside its maw. The...   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

That BioShock teaser was an iOS port and it plays well (sort of)

That BioShock teaser from 2K? It's not a new BioShock game. It's the first one, but on Apple devices. Hence the apple in the tease. Clever. Who called it? This is basically a full port of the PC version of BioShock, sans dynamic s...   read

Go on a sniping rampage in Hitman Sniper

Square hasn’t been afraid to use the Hitman IP in fun and creative ways. Hitman GO was a critical success for doing something unique, and while Hitman Sniper isn’t on that same scale, it is still at least a ton of fun.   read

TGS: Rockman Xover is, at worst, inoffensive
