1001 Spikes is one of my favorite games and I think you'd like it too if you gave it a try. At one point, I even joking-not-jokingly said it's better than Game of Thrones. Given how people turned on that show in its last season, I think a l...

Crystal Crisis is worthy replacement for Puzzle Fighter

As somebody who covers plenty of mobile games, I've seen my fair share of copycats. When some type of game makes it big, a flood of imitators is not far behind. It's disheartening to see, but sometimes it's absolutely necessary. When lookin...
