Keep Holding Your Breath for Armello — out March 2016

We’ve been waiting on the amazing looking Armello for three years. I first went hands on with it in 2013. But looks like the tablet version is still a ways off. Developer League of Geeks has announced that it won’t be out on tablets until March 2016 — nearly a year away still.

Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th Anniversary Edition Review

The HD conversion of this classic may not hold up all that well. Sounds like this is a release only if taking a trip down memory lane is the goal.

As a historical piece, Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th Anniversary Edition has some benefits but it’s a harsh reminder that sometimes you’re better off sticking with the memories than going back to them.

Out Now: Kingdom Clicker – the latest auto RPG/clicker game

Kingdom Clicker, the latest in the auto RPG / clicker-typer genre was released last week. This one comes with a twist — PvP battles.

In Kingdom Clicker the usual clicking is done to gather coins, which are used to buy buildings and power-ups that auto-generate coins. It’s a well worn mechanic and implemented very well here. The graphics are good, the game plays well. But the interesting new thing here is that once a certain size kingdom is built, players can battle other players to attempt to steal part of their bank.

I’ve been playing this for a few days and find myself drawn back to it a few times per day. My only concern with this game is that same for many, I wish the battle were more intuitive — they are basically just a dice roll. That said, it’s a fun game, well done, and worth a try.

Paper Train: Rush Review – “just another perfectly playable endless runner”

Pocket Gamer takes a look at Paper Train: Rush and is bored with the sameness giving it a 6/10.

But it never goes above or beyond the shape we’ve all become familiar with. It’s solid, it looks good, and everything it tries to do it does with aplomb. But it doesn’t really try to do all that much.

Impulse GP Review – “Speedy racing game looks and feels great”

148Apps takes a look at the recently released $2.99 racer Impulse GP and generally likes it. Praise for the controls, both in their accuracy and in the variety of options. The main downside is the silly AI, which seems over simplistic.
