Auro: A Monster-Bumping Adventure

Auro Review: a tight, finely honed puzzle game

Pocket Tactics takes a look at Auro, the turn based puzzle game released last week. They give it top marks and comment:

Auro is a tight, finely honed puzzle game clad in the monstrous milieu of a dungeon crawl, similar to Hoplite and 868-Hack. Players are cast as the bratty prince Auro, trying to drive off evil overlord/irritating twerp prince Argo by smiting his monstrous minions. Auro, though, doesn’t have much fighting expertise beyond his fondness for shoving things into the water which floods your castle’s dungeons. To triumph against progressively nastier waves of foes, he must use a selection of spells in order to shift and bump the beasties to their watery (or airy, or fiery) doom.

Hitman Go

Hitman Go Review

In a way, all stealth-based games are made up of puzzles. The levels in series like Metal Gear Solid, Hitman, and Tenchu usually give you an area to infiltrate, with well-placed guards who act in a predictable manner, whom you have to sneak past (or kill) without alerting anyone. The makers of Hitman Go have turned the long-running series into a digital board game for iPad, with excellent results.

Unlike most board games, there’s no tutorial or instruction manual. You’re just thrown in and left to figure out how the game works. The levels are designed to incrementally teach you how to play, and they do a good job of it. You learn from each mistake, which creates a satisfying sense of discovery.

Your goal is always to deliver Agent 47 from one point in the level to another, usually across the board. To do that, you move one space at a time along branching pathways. The game is turn-based, so after you make a move, the enemies make their move. Each enemy type acts a certain way, whether it’s walking a predetermined path, turning 180 degrees, or simply standing still.

Monument Valley

Monument Valley Review

If you blended the MC Escher-esque visuals of the PSN title Echochrome with the gameplay of FEZ, Monument Valley would most likely be the end result. From the moment you’re dropped into the world and start exploring, you know you’ve discovered something special.

By twisting and turning the environment, hidden paths are uncovered and optical illusions will be revealed as more of the world is opened up in front of you. Monument Valley is bright and colorful, with a beautiful soundtrack and intuitive touch controls, all of which work together to keep you immersed in the experience.
