Grim Fandango Remastered Review: Not to Be Missed

The classic adventure game Grim Fandango has sauntered onto the App Store, and 148Apps has a review. Long story short, they like it and think you should buy it.

Playing Grim Fandango on a touch screen works reasonably well for the most part. Tapping on interactive elements brings up a small wheel of commands like “pick up” or “look at,” and a contextual button will appear when Manny is holding an item that will let him use it on himself if need be. It’s all classic point-and-click style adventure stuff, and that’s great.

Dungeon Link Review: An RPG With a Clever Hook

Touch Arcade has reviewed Dungeon Link, a line-drawing puzzle-based RPG. They dig it, more or less, giving it 3.5 stars out of 5 in their review.

And there’s a ton of stuff to do. The regular dungeon progression requires that you replay earlier levels, but the randomness in level layouts means that they are usually fresh; the differences in the myriad rewards is why you’ll replay them. Plus, there are later difficulties with better rewards. Then, you have the daily dungeons, which feature special items you need to evolve some characters. There’s a tower with ever-harder monsters and ever-greater rewards. There are raid bosses where you can fight them multiple times to do more damage and to get better rewards. With daily quests, timed rewards, and even PVP battles that unlock, there’s always something to do.

Threes! Removed Briefly from Google Play Over 2048 Keyword

There was a brief spurt of drama last night when the creator of the popular math puzzle game Threes!, Asher Vollmer, told Twitter his game had been removed from Google Play. The reason for the removal lies with an imitator, as Gamezebo explains:

2048 was a shameless clone of Sirvo LLC’s Threes!, a game created by Vollmer and Greg Wohlwend. During the brief few weeks that Threes! appeared on iOS but not Android, a mobile version of 2048 appeared on Google Play as a free download. This essentially obliterated Threes! chances at Android success, and thanks to its open source nature, inspired a litany of clones on both Google Play and the App Store.

Threes! has since re-appeared on Google Play.

Cooped Up Review: Another Fine Bird From Nitrome

Nitrome continues to flash its pretty plumage. Its latest title, Cooped Up, is a climbing game that’s great fun despite its simplicity, according to Pocket Gamer’s review.

It might not be the biggest game that Nitrome has released, but Cooped Up fizzes with a lot of the majesty we’ve come to expect from the dev. It looks stunning, the animations are fantastic, and it’s simple to pick up and play.

Vainglory Enters the World of Esports

You read that right: The MOBA Vainglory will soon be an official esport. It’s almost like mobile gaming is becoming a legitimate thing (a drum we’ve been beating since the dawn of the App Store). From VentureBeat:

Developer Super EvilMegacorp has announced a partnership with e-sports organization ESL for the Vainglory Cup Series. Together, the two companies will put together a tournament for Vainglory (read our review), the multiplayer online arena battler for touchscreen devices, that starts May 13 in Europe. The finals take place June 14, and the winning team till get a cash prize as well as Shield tablets from Nvidia. This is Vainglory’s first official e-sports event, and it will go a long way toward proving that competitive gaming, which is expected to generate more than $450 million in revenue by 2017, is viable on tablets and smartphones.

Microgue Review: Distilled Dungeon Crawling

By all accounts Microgue is a winner of a bite-sized roguelike. 148Apps has chimed in with a glowing review of its own, saying:

The great thing about Microgue is that each playthrough is different as a result of randomized levels, though players improve their ability to make progress by learning how to manipulate enemies and the environment to their advantage. This makes Microgue satisfying as a result of learning rather than a game about accumulating experience or gear.
