Killer FPS Afterpulse Released on iOS - equal parts amazing and annoying at the same time.

Afterpulse has been in soft launch for a while now and I’ve been tracking it. It’s a really impressive first person shooter but it’s not without it’s annoyances.

First let’s get this out of the way. The first person shooter gameplay is some of the best and most impressive ever seen on a mobile platform. The graphics are beyond console quality, the controls are pretty good (for virtual sticks), and the frame rate on the latest iPhone 6s+ is amazing. Metal graphics really do impress.

But that comes at a cost. It’s a free to play game that uses all of the old, tired, annoy the hell out of the player to get them to pay tactics. They haven’t learned anything from games that have progressed the free to play methods beyond energy systems and multiple currencies. Because of this the game is unbalanced and just annoying. Really it’s a pristine, amazing FPS wrapped up in a wad of old dirty clothes.

So why are we writing about this? Well I considered not mentioning it just out of anger from the annoying energy timer. But it’s Editor’s Choice on the App Store this week and the gameplay itself is really really good. It’s so good that I am putting up with the annoyances just to play it. But I do feel a little more dirty every time I play it.

zombie match defense

What if you crossed zombies with match-3 and lane defense? Zombie Match Defense!

This game by Jake Sones is the result of a bet, probably made over multiple drinks, that two over used game genres couldn’t be combined and made to be fun. Jake thought he could do it and I think he has succeeded.

Zombie Match Defense turns out to be a fresh take on match-3 games. With the combination of the two genres some new mechanics pop-up that are cool. The game includes both a map-based progression mode and also mode I prefer, the endless mode which is unlocked after a couple levels. And I think I can honestly say that Zombie Match Defense is the best zombie match-3 lane defense ever made. And it’s also lots of fun.

It must be halloween, even the puzzles have ghosts in Pokaboo

Pokaboo is a fine little puzzler that’s easy to solve, but hard to solve in the minimum number of moves. In Pokaboo a ghost moves around pushing color blobs — the colors will join together when matching colors are above or to the sides of one another. The puzzle is solved when all colors are matched up.  And while that’s pretty easy to do — it’s really tough to do so in the minimum number of moves.

Pokaboo is a fun little puzzle that could use from an in-game hint system. But overall it’s a fun little premium diversion not weighed down by complicated controls, IAP, or silly currency systems.

The Beggar's Ride

Great Mobile Platformer Beggar’s Ride Magically Appears

It’s always nice to see a main character I can identify with. In Beggar’s Ride a fat old man with gray hair and a beard has gained magical powers via a discovered mask that allows vision and control of things normal mortals can not see. These special powers lead to solving special puzzles along the way. So, yeah, a puzzle platformer.

This is one of the more beautiful platformers on mobile — and that’s saying something. It’s a great sit down and play game, well worth picking up. Premium game with no IAP. Total lack of Jim Carrey is a bonus.

The Bathroom Break That Could Destroy The World in Please, Don’t Touch Anything

Four Quarters has released a new very puzzling game through Bulkypix today. Please, Don’t Touch Anything starts when you are left in charge of a mysterious control panel when a worker goes on a bathroom break.

Please, Don’t Touch Anything is a very odd, but oh so fun puzzle game that has q very dark sense of humor. As things start to go wrong, more and more controls are revealed with cryptic instructions on how to continue. It’s like a super complex game of Simon where if you lose, you pay the ultimate penalty.

Guitar Hero® Live

Guitar Hero Live - Rock out with your phone out

Guitar Hero is back! This time it’s going live as the game allows players to play in front of a live audience or to strum along with GHTV, an in-game music video channel. In addition, there will be iOS compatible controllers out soon that will give the full experience, or play along using the touch only version.

While this game is free, it only comes with two songs. The full version requires buying either the controller bundle or unlocking the touch only version to get access to all of the songs. Luckily no piecemeal pay per song like last time around.

Ghosts of Memories

Ghosts of Memories - An Adventure Puzzler Dunked in a Monumental Valley

There’s no denying that this game takes a few cues from the isomorphic, Escher-like worlds of Monument Valley. But that’s a good thing. It’s a different game, but just as wonderfully atmospheric, relaxing, yet brain straining as Monument Valley.

Ghosts of Memories is an adventure puzzle game located in 4 stunningly beautiful worlds. In Ghosts of Memories you will explore the lands of ancient civilizations, full of undiscovered paths and mysterious puzzles based on tricky tiles. Think logically to solve all the quests and puzzles on your journey!
