Google’s Cardboard VR Headset is Now Compatible With iOS

At Google’s I/O conference keynote today, the company announced it would make its Cardboard virtual reality headset compatible with iPhone. From Touch Arcade:

This is actually a pretty cool way to bring VR to iOS. It basically just separates your phone screen into two different displays for your eyes. If you ever played Metal Gear Acid 2 on the PSP with its headset, it’s kind of like that in terms of simulated 3D. And with the high-pixel-density screens on mobile phones, they’re well-suited for HD VR content. After all, an earlier version of the Oculus Rift used an identical display as a Samsung Galaxy Note, and the Gear VR uses an off-the-shelf Galaxy Note 4 for VR apps. Cardboard can literally be made from cardboard, and the latest version of the headset now can be assembled or disassembled in 3 steps. There are 9 different premade kits, including a Viewmaster, but you can always just make your own headset.

Gamebook Adventures 10: Lords of Nurroth Review – A Good Trip

Long live the game book. 148Apps has a review of Gamebook Adventures 10: Lords of Nurroth from Tin Man Games. It’s more of the same, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

If you never much cared for gamebooks then Lords of Nurroth isn’t going to change your mind. That said, the tale is an interesting one and I enjoyed playing the part of the master thief quite a bit.

The Talos Principle is Now Available on Android

The very highly-regarded PC puzzle game The Talos Principle is now available on certain Android devices here. It could come to iOS, but there are no concrete plans at the moment. From Touch Arcade:

This is currently an Android and Tegra X1 and K1 exclusive. That means you need an Nvidia Shield tablet, the Shield Android TV, the Nexus 9, or any other device with those chipsets. But here’s the interesting thing the game has touchscreen controls. Some games have been Shield exclusives, like Half-Life 2, but have required a controller to play. With touchscreen controls being an option for this game, there’s definitely the possibility that this could work for iOS.

Cartoon Survivor Review: A Killer Auto-Runner

Who wants to play a game about a dodo bird on a murderous obstacle course? More like who doesn’t? From 148Apps’s 4 out of 5 star review:

Despite the colorful and actually rather pretty visuals, this is not an easy game. There are often branching paths to consider with no real time to consider them, and at times you’ll have to rely on trial-and-error to find your way through a few levels (stupid rocks popping up out of the ground…). Some clever concessions have been made, such as being able to choose the length of the dynamite’s wick and thus give yourself more or less time to complete a level at the cost of your end-run star rating, but be prepared to fail quite a bit. Of course, failure is to be expected when you’re a dodo with explosives strapped to its back.

Letter Tale Review: Sly, Deceptive Fox

Letter Tale is one charming-looking game, but according to Gamezebo’s review, its gameplay isn’t as inspired as its visuals.

This simplicity and lack of difficulty might label Letter Tale a children’s game, but some of the jumps and movements are delicate enough that even older gamers will find themselves frustrated as Ari tumbles down another cliff.
