‘Furdemption’ Review: Almost Purrfect

This puzzle platformer may be soaked in feline blood, but that doesn’t make it any less fantastic. From Touch Arcade’s 5 out of 5 star review:

The game has plenty of content, with 100 progressively-harder levels and more coming according to the developers. The beta version included a level designer, but the developers pulled it to focus on the game and plan on adding it in a future update. A level designer with shareable levels would give this game immense replayability because of all the different components already in the game. Even without the level designer, the game more than justifies its $2.99 price, especially since the game has no IAP. Initially, the developers pondered going F2P with IAPs but eventually went with a premium price that might rise as they add more content (which means get the game now if you like it).Furdemption is a trully great puzzle platformer with a whimsical protagonist and a colorful-yet-gory art style that stands out among the competition. Add to that a fun soundtrack and the promise of more features to come, and this game’s a winner.

‘Fort Meow’ Review: Cat Physics

This physics puzzler is about creating forts to fend off the cats trying to get your attention. From 148Apps’s 3.5 out of 5 star review:

A lot of Fort Meow’s charm keeps you in a forgiving mood, not least because of the cats becoming hardier and you also learn more about your Grandfather through his journal. It is a little on the short side though, and such issues stop Fort Meow from becoming one of the greats.

‘Samurai Blitz’ Review: Fresh but Familiar

Pocket Gamer has rung in on the quality of the endless runner Samurai Blitz and found it to be pretty freaking good. From the 8 out of 10 review:

Combined with a double jump ability, you’ll find yourself capable of chaining elaborate slice-hops to rack up the combos. It’s deliciously moreish.

There are a number of scenery changes, boss characters, and unlockable scrolls and swords, but in truth you’re just doing the same thing repeatedly – and in this case, that’s just fine.

New Screenshots for ‘The Room Three’

Developer Fireproof Games has released two new screenshots for the upcoming sequel The Room Three. If you dig environmental puzzles and you haven’t played the first two games, you had better fix that before the three-quel launches. From Touch Arcade:

Fireproof Games has stated that for the third game in the series, it aims to take the mysterious story and puzzle solving to higher and weirder places, which, as you’ll know if you’ve played either of the two earlier games, is quite the promise. The Room and its sequel drip with dread and foreboding and deliver a great puzzle experience set within a gorgeous world. Judging from the new screenshots, then, The Room Three will likely surpass the earlier entries just as the developers have promised. We’ll update you with information on a possible release date when we hear more, but personally, I’ll take a great, polished game over a rushed release any day of the week.

Dragon Quest XI Won’t Be a Mobile Game

New Dragon Quest titles are typically developed for whichever system is most popular at the time (in Japan), but even though mobile gaming has conquered the East, Dragon Quest XI will be on a (still undisclosed) console.

“We have other games typically designed for smartphones: Dragon Quest Monsters Parade, which is controlled with the fingertips on the touch screen. We really need to think about the most appropriate hardware before designing the play. Our mobile remakes are more fan service than anything else.”

Fallout Shelter Lunchbox Sale July 3-5 – 50% off on bundles

Fallout Shelter has been taking way too much of my time. I really don’t know why. It just gets so much right I think. But Bethesda has put lunch boxes on sale in the game at up to 75% off — here are the prices listed in the game and in effect for July 3-5 only.

1 Lunchbox – $0.99 (same)
5 Lunchboxes – $1.99 (60% off)
15 Lunchboxes – $4.99 (66% off)
40 Lunchboxes – $9.99 (75% off)

The % off listed in the in-game store is a little incorrect as that refers to price of the bundle versus buying a single lunchbox at $0.99. But the bundles are indeed 50% off of their normal price.
