Tim Schafer’s Broken Age Finished and Out on iOS

Tim Schaefer’s pitch for Broken Age received a great deal of attention and set off a Kickstarter revolution when it managed to raise $3 million for development in 2012. The final product had to be released in two parts, and with the launch of part two, Broken Age is finally a whole adventure game instead of “Episode One” and “Episode Two.”

Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 Coming This Halloween

Think you’re done with Freddy Fazbear? Freddy Fazbear’s not done with you. The popular cult survival horror series Five Nights at Freddy’s will continue – and supposedly end – with Five Nights at Freddy’s 4, which is coming on Halloween. The game is being teased on developer Scott Cawthon’s website with a picture of a decimated Freddy Fazbear who has lots of little, equally-decimated bears crawling out of his ruined body. Charming!

EA Sports UFC Tips for Newcomers

Perhaps you’ve chosen to download the fighting game EA Sports UFC. Perhaps you’re struggling to get your knock-outs and your submissions. If so, Gamezebo has the cure for what ails you. Check out their tips and tricks guide here.

A predictable offense is pretty useless, so be sure to change it up a bit when it comes time to pummel your opponent. Refrain from spamming one type of attack over and over, and instead spice it up a bit with some light, medium, and heavy hits.

Finger Derpy Review: Absurdly Delightful

Racing drunken horses has never been as fun as it is in Finger Derpy, a bizarre game that’s probably unlike anything you’ve played before. It comes with a drunken race mode and a drunken endless running mode, and really what more could you ask for, based on the premise? From 148Apps’s 3.5 out of 5 star review:

The only problem withFinger Derpy is that it’s much easier to laugh at than it is to control. It’s understandable that controlling these intoxicated creatures is a difficult and messy process, but this commitment to swimmy and relatively unresponsive controls might prevent some players from giving it a shot. That being said, drunk horses are funny; and they’re even funnier when a group of four players are bumbling about and running into each other as they try to race around a track on the same screen in multiplayer.

Caves ‘n Chasms Review: Dig It

Caves ‘n Chasms is a game about digging. It’s about solving puzzles and digging with a drill. Also, there are monsters and some issues with the controls. From Pocket Gamer’s 8 out of 10 review:

But stick with it and everything will start to click. You’ll discover how cunning some of the layouts and puzzles are, find yourself determined to beat them, and then enjoy new items and power-ups as they’re revealed.

Magic Shot Review: Formless Yet Enjoyable

You know that feeling when you want to play an experimental French billiards game? Well, Magic Shot is here to satisfy that gnawing desire. In this game, the shape of the pool table changes, but the goal always remains the same: to knick both the red and yellow balls with the cue ball in a single shot. From Touch Arcade’s 3.5 out of 5 star review:

So, your enjoyment with Magic Shot is contingent on how much chaos you like in your games. Purity mode will test your patience with this game, though it is forgiving with the multiple shots that you get. But I do wish you good luck in trying to figure just how exactly you’re going to hit some of the shots the game gives you. Meditation and Insanity, while providing opposite structures, both rely on the chaos of the concept to progress further. So, unless you can somehow become the master of bouncing spherical objects off of each other, then just take Magic Shot for what it is: an exploration of a concept, not as a game meant to be fair. As I say when I let loose a pool shot that I have no clue will actually work or not: let chaos reign!

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.

Leo’s Fortune is On Sale for $0.99

Platformer fans who haven’t already snapped up Leo’s Fortune should probably do so right now. That’s because the game is on sale for a buck, down from five bucks, a price point it almost never reaches. Still need more convincing? From Touch Arcade’s 5 out of 5 star review:

An excellent adventure platformer, Leo’s Fortune is a prime example of taking an established genre and simply taking the quality factor to an entirely different level. Gorgeous visuals and established gameplay featuring great puzzles are wrapped inside a cohesive narrative that drives the entire game.

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.
