Do you like physics games? Do you enjoy ricocheting balls off of things in a Pong-like fashion in order to solve puzzles? If you answered yes to either of those questions, hurry to the App Store and grab Ricochet Theory, a game that lets you enjoy both of those pastimes. It normally sells for $1.99 (with no IAP), but it’s currently free.
The fourth and penultimate episode of Telltale’s fine Tales from the Borderlands series of adventure games is out, and IGN found it to be the weakest installment yet (of a very good series). From the 6 out of 10 review:
The fantastic momentum that Telltale has built throughout the first three acts of Tales from the Borderlands grinds to a halt in Escape Plan Bravo. While I still adore this world and its fantastic characters, Episode 4 doesn’t capture the same intriguing story progression and amazing character development of its predecessors.
One of the most beloved and best-selling JRPGs of all time is now available on iOS, and 148Apps feels a bit on the conflicted side about it. From the 3.5-star review:
It’s still really cool to be able to play Final Fantasy VII on my phone, though. The inelegant interface doesn’t really get in the way of actually playing the game (just looking at it), and all the other mobile-centric tweaks (max stats, turning off encounters, cloud saves) feel right at home in a mobile port. There’s little reason to pick this version over the PC or even the PSN versions, but if you like the idea of reliving the 80+ hour epic on the go it’s not a bad choice.
