I can’t believe it, Lonnie actually starts this video without his signature squeaky sign-on “Hi, YouTube!” Once you get past the novelty of that, you can check out him checking out Prune, the gorgeous game about trimming trees so they grow into the light.

Race the Sun Review: Hard to Put Down

We all love a good endless runner now and again, and Race the Sun is exactly that — except with flying. It may start off kind of bare-bones and slow, but once you start unlocking stuff it picks up big time. From 148Apps’s 4-star review:

I honestly wasn’t having much fun with Race the Sun at first, but I’m glad I stuck with it. Things really open up once you start to unlock features that, honestly, should’ve probably been enabled from the start. Still, once you get going it’s difficult to stop.

Angry Birds 2 Review: Same Old Fun, But with Ads

Everyone’s had a chance to dig into the sequel to the most famous mobile game of all time by this point, and the reviews are overwhelmingly positive… you know, despite the usual nags of the free-to-play formula. From Gamezebo’s 3.5 star review:

Angry Birds 2 is a free download, so there’s nothing to be lost by giving it a try. But given how little its gameplay varies from classic Angry Birds, you might be better off paying a bit of money to grab the first game. It might seem a little bare-bones in this day and age, but “bare bones” means no lives or level timers. It’s just you, pigs, and physics. Just the way the Mighty Eagle always intended for things to be.

Angry Birds 2: Tips, Cheats, and Secrets

After buckling down for the review, Pocket Gamer has resurfaced with some helpful hints for anyone looking to maximize their gameplay in Angry Birds 2. From the article:

Angry Birds 2 is not your average Angry Birds game. We’d normally provide video guides that show you how to finish every level in the game. But for this installment, most of the stages are randomly generated. So! If you want to get better at Angry Birds 2, a traditional guide won’t help you. You can’t learn the levels – you must learn the game. You must master the way of the bird. And that’s what we’re here for.

Check out these tips to save money, beat the piggies, and generally be a brilliant human being.

Angry Birds 2 Review: Rovio at Its Best, but Freemium-ized

Angry Birds 2 is out in the wild now, and it’s a very good game. Now if only it didn’t have all those pesky free-to-play trappings… From Pocket Gamer’s 7/10 review:

Angry Birds 2 isn’t perfect, but it does manage to capture that elastic playfulness that made the original such an essential download. Does it earn its place as the first numerical sequel? It’s hard to say, and it all depends how you like your energy systems.But one thing’s for sure, in terms of scope, creativity, and sheer quality, the game underneath the hearts and currencies is Rovio the developer at its best.

To-Fu Fury Review: Boring Food, Fun Game

We’re big fans of the To-Fu series, and the latest entry looks like it delivers more of the goods. From 148Apps’s 3.5 out of 5 star review:

To-Fu Fury does a fairly good job of gradually introducing all these elements, so it’s not too tough early on, but it soon gets there. Each level offers a series of objectives too in the form of a timer, par number of moves, and a gem tracker, each rewarding you for doing things most efficiently. That’s whenTo-Fu Fury gets quite tricky, as simply passing a stage isn’t too hard. It’s also where things turn more rewarding and To-Fu Fury soon turns quite appealing. You’ll end up playing stages multiple times, but still feel like you’re progressing, given you have different aims each time. The most satisfying moments are when you finish a level having used just one more, but that’s often the trickiest technique.

Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 Review: “absolutely haunting” atmosphere

The latest scare-fest in this series about killer animatronics is yet another winner, from the sounds of it, as long as you can hear the game’s audio clearly. From Gamezebo’s 4 out of 5 star review:

Unlike past games, there are no security cameras to monitor in Five Nights at Freddy’s 4. Instead, you play as a scared child who must run between his doors, closet, and bed constantly to keep monstrous versions of the animatronics at bay (seriously – Bonnie, Chica, Foxy, and Freddy are particularly terrifying this time around).

Don’t Sweat It if Your ‘Hearthstone’ Card Collection is Kind of Weak

A new Hearthstone expansion is gearing up to drop into our laps, which has made a few Internet pundits and apprehensive gamers bemoan that it’s not even worth trying to get into the game because it’ll take so much time/money to get the good cards. Touch Arcade says don’t sweat it, son. From the “pep talk”:

It’s like anything in life, if you don’t learn from your failures, you’re just doomed to continue to fail. Don’t get discouraged, keep plugging away, and try to absorb as muchHearthstone knowledge as possible through your defeats.

Warhammer: Arcane Magic Review – “will keep players engaged”

Do you dig Warhammer and/or strategy games but want to make sure the new one is worth $9.99? It looks like it is. From Pocket Gamer’s 8/10 review:

Warhammer: Arcane Magic is an eminently playable distillation of some of the aspects that make the tabletop game so impressive. But rather than investing hours in building a force and engaging in enormous terrain-traversing battles, here you’re tackling bite-sized magical skirmishes. There’s a resolute fizz to proceedings, and a tactical hum that will keep most players engaged for a good long while.

‘Kingdom Clicker’ Review: Provides a “short period of obsession”

If you’ve ever gotten far more sucked into a clicker RPG than you probably should have, you’ll want to take a peek at Kingdom Clicker, a game that holds a mysterious sway over a certain type of player. From 148Apps’s 3.5/5 review:

Eventually, the sheen will fade from Kingdom Clicker and you’ll want something with more depth, but as a part of this strangely addictive genre, it succeeds pretty well. It makes a pleasant change from the usual auto RPG style and there’s always something new to work towards.

‘Prune’ Review: “a gorgeous and unique experience”

Prune is the hotness right now, so if you haven’t played it you’re missing out. From Touch Arcade’s perfect 5/5 review:

Prune is such a gorgeous experience – the music goes a long way toward setting the atmosphere, and the sounds of when the flowers bloom on your tree provide the rising notes marking your success. The game is otherwise dark with clever usage of color, and sound & music cues that inform you of what’s going on. There’s no dialog in the game, but the story and point of the experience becomes steadily clear as you play it.

Out Now: Warhammer: Arcane Magic

It’s almost like there’s a factory somewhere, with workers going nonstop, that pumps out Warhammer games 24 hours a day. The latest to hit the App Store is Warhammer: Arcane Magic, a strategy game that looks more like the tabletop version than most of them. From the app’s description:

Assume the roles of famous Warhammer wizards — including Teclis, Balthasar Gelt, and Wurrzag. Use spell cards to fight legendary monsters (such as Harpies, Cygors, and Exalted Bloodthirsters) or mystically have them fight by your side! Win battles to progress through a deep single-player campaign, acquire spells, and take on even more menacing foes. It will take more than courage and strength to defeat enemies conjured by a storm of magic. How far will your skills take you in the search for Arcane Magic?
