Glass Lighthouse: A Wizard’s Tale Review – Puzzling in a Bad Way

If you’re in the mood for a kind of broken puzzle game, Glass Lighthouse: A Wizard’s Tale has you covered. It has some really nice low-polygon graphics, but the game mechanics could use some work. You can read 148Apps’s 2.5 out of 5 star review here.

That thing you need to do? It’s simple enough, in theory. You have to slot jigsaw pieces back inside the existing shape. This starts out fairly simple but soon gets trickier as your intentions change somewhat. There’s a more fundamental issue too. It’s often hard to see where you’ve already slotted things in. At regular points, Glass Lighthouse: A Wizard’s Tale illuminates the shape but then the lines vanish all too soon, and leave you to try to memorize where things were placed before.

Gamebook: Pocket RPG Review – Not Gamey Enough

Touch Arcade has reviewed Gamebook: Pocket RPG, an app that’s hardly a game, hardly an RPG, and hardly 8 minutes long. You can read the 2 out of 5 star review here, but it’s not very pretty. Don’t fall for the pretty screenshots; it’s probably not worth your time or money.

There are points where you have to make choices, but only one choice moves you forward, with the remainder simply insisting that you go back to make the correct one. The only variability comes in whether you visit certain rooms at certain points, earning a checkmark on your player card for particular events. The game also feels very rough around the edges and even outright unfinished at points. It’s highly likely that the developers speak English as a second language, with the results being the most entertaining element of the whole game. I’m not sure if that’s intentional or not, but let’s take the small victories where we can.

Lonnie Plays Cube Koala

The YouTuber Lonnie has posted a video of Cube Koala, a fun little puzzle game about tilting a world so a cube-shaped koala can make it safely to the exit. The game is tough and bizarre but weirdly adorable (it stars a koala after all). Watch the video to see if it’s your type of weirdness.
