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

Magic: The Gathering - Puzzle Quest found inspiration in Tinder

I'm telling you right now, if you clicked on this article for an expert opinion on all things Magic: The Gathering, you're in the wrong place. I know fuck-all about Magic! My only experience with Puzzle Quest is the five minutes I play...   read

Mobile Tomb Raider Lara Croft GO feels lovely

Square Enix Montréal possesses a genuine talent for artfully distilling series down to their essence. In 2014, the developer released Hitman GO, a turn-based deconstruction of IO Interactive's stealth franchise, which went on to...   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

Youll play Skullduggery greedily, whether fast or slow

Flick, flick, flick. That’s all you’ll be doing in Skullduggery. Flicking to collect treasure. Flicking to outrun bosses. Flicking to line up stealthy headshots on unsuspecting enemies. You can play the game however you want (u...   read

Super Meat Boy Forever is harder than the original

Team Meat's new project Super Meat Boy Forever made its first appearance today at PAX Prime in Seattle -- and it makes the original game look like a cakewalk by comparison. The newly revealed title is an auto-run platfor...   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


Candy Crush studio's next game, Bubble Witch Saga 2

What's next for the studio that bagged mountains of cash on games like Candy Crush Saga and Farm Heroes Saga? It's Bubble Witch Saga 2. I never knew there was a first game, but seeing as how the Facebook page for Bubble Witch Saga has ...   read

Extrasolar does exoplanet exploration, but it is more than meets the eye

When I was talking to one of the developers of Extrasolar on the show floor at PAX East, I said something that I now regret. "This looks like something I would really like, but might not appeal to a ton of other people." He responded gracef...   read

The offensive leads to the defensive in Toy Rush

One of the cutest-looking games that I saw at PAX Prime was Uber Entertainment's Toy Rush. Don't let the cuteness deceive you, though. Toy Rush is shaping up to be a surprisingly deep and fun title.  The developers most often rec...   read

Terraria looks lovely on iOS, plays pretty solid

Indie, exploration-based Terraria has developed quite a following since its release and now it's making its way to iOS courtesy of 505 games, which handled its recent console release. Ideally, 505 would have liked all three (PSN, XBLA, iOS)...   read


Assassin's Creed IV's companion app is pretty rad

Did you play the Outer Ops missions in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker? It was a little meta-game thing that let you send your soldiers to take on various conflicts around the world. It was a risk/reward system, as you could gain valuable re...   read

Plants vs. Zombies 2 is about eating the best taco ever

So remember in the first Plants vs. Zombies when you randomly found a taco? Crazy Dave immediately bought it off of you for 1,000 coins, and then he pocketed the taco to eat later. Well in Plants vs. Zombies 2, Crazy Dave finally eats that ...   read

I had a chance to check out Square Enix's casual iOS (and soon Android) RPG Wizardlings at New York Comic-Con a week or so back. It's a cute little title that has your hero or heroine moving to lift the darkness and push back the shadows, t...   read


TGS: Rockman Xover is, at worst, inoffensive

The Mega Man fan community seems to have their knickers all in a twist over Rockman Xover, Capcom's latest iOS adventure for OVER-1. At least, that's the impression I get from Tony Ponce, and I don't know a greater superfan, so I'm just goi...   read


TGS: Professor Layton's iOS debut isn't what you'd expect

The idea of developers dedicating resources to mobile versions of franchises is something I’ve long been against, but have slowly been warming up to. So, they might as well make something good. Layton Brothers: Mystery Room isn&rsqu...   read
