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.

Dust: An Elysian Tail

Touch Arcade Gives Dust: An Elysian Tail 5/5 - "one of the best games I've played on iOS this year"

Shaun Musgrave gives a glowing 5/5 to the recent release Dust: An Elysian Tail noting:

While I don’t think this version of the game is the one to beat, those who haven’t played Dust: An Elysian Tail before or simply want a portable version of the game will be well-served by this thoughtful port. If you primarily play games on your iOS device, this is an easy recommendation. It’s a substantial, enjoyable action-adventure game with superb visuals and a strong sense of style. The developer clearly took the needs of the platform into account, providing all kinds of options that make sense for mobile players, but without compromising an inch on the gameplay. This is one of the best games I’ve played on iOS this year, which I suppose is Shaun-speak for “go buy this game now, friends”.

Mos Speedrun 2

Mos Speedrun 2 Review Gets Perfect 5/5 from Touch Arcade - "But Wait, There’s More"

Carter “3 1/2 stars” Dotson took a look at Mos Speedrun 2 over at Touch Arcade and gave it a full 5/5 stars.

Will you love Mos Speedrun 2? If you loved the Mikey games, you owe it to yourself to check this out, especially since the original Mos Speedrun was a fantastic game that heavily inspired that franchise. But this sequel is definitely more for the hardcore player who doesn’t mind repetition and the high level of challenge. This was a game I quit in frustration many, many times.

Adventures of Pip

Out Now: Adventures of Pip

Adventures of Pip is a top-tier platforming game that’s all about evolving from a single pixel to a multi-pixel hero, and back again.

Adventures of Pip revitalizes the classic side-scrolling action platform genre. Pip — the ultimate digital underdog – is a lowly single pixel in a 32-bit world who proves that you can’t judge a hero by the fidelity of his shaders. During the game, Pip gains the ability to evolve and grow by absorbing pixels from his fallen foes. Those same pixels can then be used to blast through environment puzzles and enemies, devolving Pip back to a single pixel. Players will explore five stylized worlds and experience up to 10 hours of epic adventure saving Pip’s village from the evil Queen DeRezzia.
