Broken Age Act Two Review: Two Halves Make a Whole

Tim Schafer’s Broken Age is done, and adventure fans are having a good time in its surreal world. Gamezebo reviewer Jillian Werner gives the game high praise, saying the game’s colorful and whimsical setting carries it through its few flaws.

[W]hile we sometimes felt Act 2 was just a lightly modified Act 1, if you enjoyed the first half, there’s only more to love here. Unlike Shay, we don’t want to get off this ship. But, like Vella, we wouldn’t mind a few more explosions.

Britney Spears is Getting a Mobile Game

Pop star Britney Spears is the latest starlet to keep up with the Kardashians through her own mobile / social game.

Hands-On Preview of Ghostbusters Puzzle Fighters

AppSpy goes hands-on with Capcom’s latest mobile game, a match-three puzzler based on the Ghostbusters franchise. Though it’s too early to pass any major judgement, between dull gameplay and excessive IAP peddling, it’s looking like you shouldn’t call this one. Not even if there’s something strange in your neighborhood.

Mr Jump Gets 12 New Ultra-Tough Levels

If your reflexes are finely tuned enough to have gotten you through all of the levels in Mr Jump, you’re in luck: 12 new excruciating, exacting levels have been added to the game for free. From Gamezebo:

Players can experience the new set of levels by selecting “World B” from the start menu. The first new stage introduces a jetpack that controls just like Jetpack Joyride. What you’ll find in the other 11, I couldn’t begin to guess. After 50 attempts at World B Stage 1, I’m still at 39% completion.

Jurassic World Review: A Worthwhile Experience

Jurassic World mixes park building with dino-on-dino combat. If that’s the kind of thing you’re after you’ll definitely want to give it a look. From 148Apps’s 4 out of 5 star review:

Much has been streamlined this time around. You still have to hatch dinosaurs and clear away the overgrown portions of Isla Nublar, but you won’t also have to spend time and resources removing rocks and other debris after you’ve already cleared an area. You also don’t have to worry about juggling two separate types of food for your critters – this time there’s just one food source that covers both herbivores and carnivores (this is a lot more awesome than it sounds).

Arcane Tower Review: Pleasantly, Challengingly Roguish

The third part of a trilogy of roguelikes, Arcane Tower sports retro appeal and challenge, but not too much else. Depending on what you’re looking for in a roguelike, that might be enough. From Pocket Gamer’s 7 out of 10 review:

As a result, Arcane Tower is the best game in this punishing trilogy. It still lacks the fizz, pop, and impeccably condensed tactical scope of something like Hoplite or Lamp and Vamp, but it’s a tight and challenging addition to the roguelike genre nonetheless.

Out Now: Bears vs Art

Think The Scream is overrated? Want to whack Mona Lisa in her smug face? Then you have a lot in common with Rory, the bear starring in Halfbrick’s Bears vs Art. It’s probably the only puzzle game in existence that lets you destroy abstract art as a bear.

[Sponsored] Stella’s Journey Out This Week on iOS and Android

Many thanks to our sponsor this week, Gravity Software, Ltd. and their game Stella’s Journey.

Stella’s Journey is an adventure / platform / puzzle game out this week set in a world where Stella wakes up transformed in a mysterious fairy tale style world after reading the first page of a book.

The spell that Stella reads on the first page of a mysterious book has turned her into a paper box. Only with the help of the wind can Stella find her way back home. Guiding the box through 12 puzzle filled chapters, the player controls the movement of the box with the wind through a series of platform puzzler challenges.

Steering3

Guiding Stella is done by touching on the screen to the sides of the box to blast a bit of wind and speed it in the direction away from the touch. Blowing wind in front the direction of motion will slow it down.

Puzzles

Along Stella’s journey there will be falling rocks, crushing boulder walls, and even guardian enemies. A variety of deadly traps and enemies in a multitude of physics-based puzzles in handcrafted environments with professional narration and sound effects.

Take a look at the video below to get a feel for the gameplay in Stella’s Journey.

Stella’s Journey comes to us from Gravity Software, Ltd., the same folks who recently brought us Religion Simulator.

Stella’s Journey is out this week on iOS and Android.
