Forgotten Memories Review: Puzzles From the Past

Forgotten Memories: Alternate Realities pays tribute to the classics of survival horror games, including Resident Evil and Silent Hill. According to Gamezebo’s review of the game, it delivers strong atmosphere, but its sometimes-confusing puzzles are a relic of past adventure games.

As a whole, Forgotten Memories is designed really well, and it is very creepy with some neat puzzles. The game is only marred by clunky combat experiences and a stingy save system that is stuck in the 90’s.

Halo Spartan Strike and Spartan Assault Review: A Bundle of Fun

Gamezebo’s review of the mobile Halo games combines critical analysis for Halo Spartan Strike and Halo Spartan Assault. Reviewer Tom Christiansen says both twin-stick shooters are well put-together, though he had some trouble with driving and shooting at the same time.

Halo Spartan Strike and Spartan Assault are two games that may not be traditional Halo shooters, but they are worthy of the Halo name nonetheless. They both deliver epic sci-fi ground fights filled with the sights and sounds of the Halo universe — but while they may bring something new to the brand, they don’t do much to shake up the top-down shooter genre. Still, what they do, they do well.

Knights of Pen & Paper 2 Trailer

Touch Arcade has the latest trailer up for Knights of Pen & Paper 2

The 16-bit visuals are looking great, though without running away from the “nerds sitting at a table playing a tabletop game” frame that the original game used. Super-cool. You’ll be trying to save the world from the second-edition ruleset of the game that threatens to upend everything we love and hold dear. This will not stand. Because we’ll be sitting down.

The title is very early in development, and is yet unnamed aside from a code name (BB3). You can take a look at a brief video of the game’s progress over at Big Bucket Software’s blog.

Lonnie Plays Does Not Commute

Does Not Commute is a strategic driving game about taking a stressful drive through a neighborhood in the 1970s. Lonnie is on it, with his trademark stream-of-consciousness monologue carrying us through to the end. In any case, the game looks totally bonkers and like a bunch of fun.

Sorcery! 3 Review: Simply Magical

The third installment of the beloved Sorcery! series has arrived, and it looks like this interactive book is everything fans had hoped. It’s advised that you play/read the previous installments first, because you can import your character from game to game. From 148Apps’s 4 out of 5 star review:

This ensures that Sorcery! 3 feels fresh to both newcomers to the series and to those who loved the books before. It also makes Sorcery! 3 the most well-rounded of the books so far, being challenging yet consistently gripping. As before, you can still cast spells by picking out letters, and the world map is so much more gorgeous than simple text options. It’s more than just a regular interactive fiction game, and so very worthy of your attention.

Garfield Creator Jim Davis on Mobile Games

Garfield has starred in a number of mobile games over the years, including his latest, Garfield: Survival of the Fattest. VentureBeat sat down with the legendary Jim Davis for a chat about the lasagna-loving cat’s history in games. From the interview:

Garfield’s Diner has been incredibly successful for us, with several million downloads. Garfield’s games, mobile game things, have been very successful. Things have gone very well. They’re very well received. Garfield Kart is so successful as a mobile game that it’s actually being developed into a Nintendo 3DS game in various markets around the world. Gamers really respond to Garfield being Garfield, even some of the fantastical types of things that might happen in a game.
