Recommended games in Strategy Review: Free and Highly Recommended

From what I hear, is a game all the kids are crazy about, even though (or because) you can name yourself any word you want, regardless of its R-rated-ness. From Touch Arcade’s 4.5 out of 5 star review: is described as an “MMO,” but it’s a lot more arcade-like in nature. You’ll start off as a single, solitary cell — yep, as in, a microscopic organism. Your objective is to simply absorb smaller cells, grow in size, and live as long as you possibly can. If you happen to get absorbed, it’s game over, and you’ll start over from the beginning. I’m leaving out the major gimmick of course, in that most of those other cells that you are eating and being eaten by are actually other players. Hence, the “massively multiplayer” part. As you’d expect, things can get extremely hectic and competitive being surrounded by a constant sea of players.

This War of Mine

Out Now: This War of Mine from 11 Bit Studios

One of my most anticipated games, This War of Mine is out now for iPad and Android tablets. It’s a very emotional game, be warned.

In This War Of Mine you do not play as an elite soldier, rather a group of civilians trying to survive in a besieged city; struggling with lack of food, medicine and constant danger from snipers and hostile scavengers. The game provides an experience of war seen from an entirely new angle.

The pace of This War of Mine is imposed by the day and night cycle. During the day snipers outside stop you from leaving your refuge, so you need to focus on maintaining your hideout: crafting, trading and taking care of your survivors. At night, take one of your civilians on a mission to scavenge through a set of unique locations for items that will help you stay alive.

Make life-and-death decisions driven by your conscience. Try to protect everybody from your shelter or sacrifice some of them for longer-term survival. During war, there are no good or bad decisions; there is only survival. The sooner you realize that, the better.

Sproggiwood Review: Fun at a Price

Ten bucks for an iOS game? Yep, that’s what the maker of Sproggiwood is asking. But it’s a good game, says 148Apps, and worth considering. From the review:

Sproggiwood is a roguelike and a particularly well made one at that. Inspired by Finnish mythology, it certainly offers plenty of charm. You play a simple farmer as they find themselves lured away by a talking sheep and ending up a prisoner of Sproggi, a strange forest spirit. It’s as bizarre as it sounds, but it actually all seems quite cute. You work your way through various dungeons, improving upon your level and equipment, as well as developing a village of your own.
