‘Riff the Robot’ Review: Peggle Plus

Do you like Peggle and want to play more games like Peggle? Then go ahead and download Riff the Robot. It’s like Peggle, but a little more complex. From 148Apps’s review:

Each level looks a lot like Peggle with your aim being to fling Riff the robot up through the air, taking out the various marbles around him. You use a catapult to propel him but it’s not just a matter of sitting back and watching things unfold. Riff has thrusters that you can activate by tapping left or right on the screen, thereby allowing you to send him in different directions. It’s a fun mechanic that ensures you feel regularly involved and in control.

More ‘Inside Out Thought Bubbles’ Tips and Strategies

You can never have enough tips and tricks, right? We posted some pro tips for this Pixar movie-based game yesterday, but Gamezebo has a few more they’d like to share. Without further ado…

This is perhaps the best advice I can give you about Inside Out Thought Bubbles: take your time.

You don’t have to shoot the color you’re given each turn, an alternate color is always available (unless you’re using the power-up that gives you additional colors to pick from), so always weigh your options before you take the shot.

‘Robbery Bob 2′ Review: Fun Little Sneak-Fest

Robbery Bob 2: Double Trouble is all about sneaking into places, stealing stuff, and sneaking out before anyone’s the wiser. From Touch Arcade’s 4 out of 5 star review:

If you’re looking for another stealth game, Robbery Bob 2: Double Trouble deserves a second look. It may not be in the running for most the memorable franchise in town, but it gets the job done for those of you who desire puzzle-oriented gameplay over non-stop action.

Sonic Runners Review: Go Faster, Faster, Faster

Sonic Runners is finally going worldwide, and Gamezebo has a review of the Blue Blur’s 2D endless running title.

The final result is frantic, polished gameplay similar to what Sonic Dash fans fell in love with, as well as a more classically Sonic, platformer-inspired experience that old school players pined for. Sonic Runners should be the game of choice for retro Sonic fans, as well as anyone who enjoys go, go, go, going fast.

The Simpsons: Tapped Out Updates With Tap Ball

It’s never a good idea to play a game devised by Homer Simpsons, but you should be all right with his newest creation, Tap Ball: You’re behind layers of protective glass, e.g. your mobile device.

What’s New in Version 4.15.0
Homer Simpson has introduced a sport so dangerous, so wild, so confusing that it could only exist in the digital sphere.

Put together and train a team of sporty Springfielders and challenge your neighbors to games of Tap Ball, where the only rule is that there is a never ending list of rules (because Homer keeps making them up!)

With new buildings, characters, decorations, and quest lines, it’s GAME ON in Springfield!

Sega’s Heroki is Finally On its Way

  • Confused by the snowflake symbols? Those are called Brain Freezes, and have frozen memories arrayed around them. Brain Freezes can be cleared by removing all the frozen memories adjacent to them, but be careful with your shots — any memory that touches the snowflake will be trapped and added to the ones already ringing it.

Letter Tale Review: Good for Kids But That’s About It

Letter Tale is a game that looks great on paper (and in screenshots) but doesn’t quite live up to the same standard when it comes to gameplay. From the Gamezebo review, which scored it 3 out of 5 star:

Because levels are fairly short, you’ll typically have one large challenge—like chopping down a tree to form a bridge or feeding a warthog so he’ll move out of the way—and otherwise mostly a lot of walking and jumping. The lack of any sort of time limit or fail state—if Ari misses a jump or is spotted by a wolf sentry, he resets to his last safe location—creates a relaxed, stress-free exploration experience.

‘Tales from the Borderlands: Episode 3′ is the Best One Yet

The third episode of Telltale’s Tales from the Borderlands game is set to launch on Thursday, and IGN says it’s the best episode yet. From the 9.0 review:

Tales From the Borderlands Episode 3: Catch a Ride contains some of the funniest scenes Telltale has ever written. It sets up its fantastic characters, both familiar and completely new, in a handful of tense situations, and the chess board of Rhys, Fiona, and company’s long con expands to a galactic level to present tough choices, satisfying outcomes, and compelling mysteries throughout the course of this two-hour chapter.

‘Angry Birds Fight’ Review: Philosophically Bad

Touch Arcade has now rung in on the quality of the avian match-three game Angry Birds Fight, and found it lacking. From the 2 out of 5 star review:

It’s not great. It’s packed with all the free-to-play nonsense you all hate, the gameplay is pretty bland, and nothing you do seems to matter in any way. Where’s Nietzsche when you need him?

Fallen London Coming to iOS

Fallen London, a super-cheery Lovecraft-inspired post-apocalyptic interactive adventure, will be getting an iOS release later this year.

Fallen London is a sort of story-driven online adventure in which players create a character, train various skills, use those skills to complete increasingly difficult jobs, then use the spoils from those jobs to unlock new missions and stories as well as get some fancy new duds. And it’s all set in a sort of post-Cthulhu apocalypse where London has sunken into a vast underwater cavern.
