Metroidvania-like Dandara is right at home on the Switch

The impetus behind Dandara was to create a mobile metroidvania that didn't use a virtual keyboard. Thus, a character that doesn't run around, but instead aims jumps, ping-ponging between platforms. And as it turns out, that method of getti...

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 ...

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 ...

Downwell at PAX East photo

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...

You’ll 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...

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...

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.

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...

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...

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 ...
