Square-Enix Soft Launches Farms & Castles

Square-Enix recently soft-launched Farms & Castles, a puzzle game that evidently borrows some mechanics from Spry Fox’s Triple Down. Gamezebo has just one question: Why now?

Farms & Castles isn’t a bad Triple Town copycat by any stretch, but there’s no denying what this is. If you want to give Square Enix your mobile attention, we’d have a hard time recommending this over recent gems like Hitman Sniper, Heavenstrike Rivals andChaos Rings III.

Reviews via Gamezebo: Review: Bafflingly Popular

Initially born as a web-based game, is a competitive arcade-style game that’s taken the App Store by storm — but one reviewer from Gamezebo isn’t sure why.

The only thing I can think of is that’s success shows that gamers don’t care about graphics, and a couple of very simple game mechanics are enough to bring success to a game. But I know that’s not completely true to begin with. If anything, proves that even if you think your idea for a game may not be that great, release it anyway, because it could just absolutely explode in popularity.

Play This: Down the Mountain

As a youngster, I spent hours playing Q*bert on my family’s Atari 2600. I was never any good at it, but the block-hopping antics of the titular Q*bert entertained me anyway. Now, years later, I have another chance to “get good,” as the kids say, with Down the Mountain.

Down the Mountain wraps itself in scraps of Q*bert’s hide, but there’s a wide streak of Crossy Road here as well. Same boxel graphics, same avatar collection mechanic. You simply hop down an infinite pyramid instead of across an endless road — and said pyramid is thick with enemies, traps, and (for some reason) hopping cars. It’s all kind of familiar, but that doesn’t mean it’s not fun.

Alphabear Review: Ursine Alphabet Fun

Alphabear is taking word game enthusiasts by storm, and it’s not hard to see why. As Touch Arcade’s review outlines, it’s a fun and funny word game that adds a collection element for extra good times.

The presentation is thoroughly adorable, the bears’ mad-libs make it a fun conversation piece, and the fundamental mechanics are challenging and enjoyable.

The Rhythm of Fighters Will Be Unavailable After July 15

SNK fans take note: The rhythm of The Rhythm of Fighters stops on July 15. You’ll be able to play it after the termination date as long as it’s on your phone, but you won’t be able to re-download it or make any in-app purchases.

The Rhythm of Fighters had you conducting songs from classic SNK games while The King of Fighters characters battled in the background. It was first released as a paid app but changed to a free-to-play game that gave you a few songs for free and more to download as in-app purchases.
