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.

R.B.I. Baseball 14 Review

The original RBI Baseball is a classic. It was simple, quick, and used real Major League Baseball players from eight different teams.

Flappy Golf Review

Based on the title, you’d be forgiven for mistaking Flappy Golf for one of the hundreds of Flappy Bird clones that have invaded the App Store. Almost universally, however, those clones were poorly made attempts to cash in on another developer’s success. Flappy Golf is different.

The result is something completely different from Flappy Bird– and very fun.  Read More →

In Out There, you play as an astronaut who’s alone on a ship, far from home, and wants to get back safely. To put it bluntly, a lot goes wrong.  Read More →

Tengami Review

Tengami is an adventure game set in an intricately designed pop-up book version of ancient Japan. While that might make it sound like a game for kids, it’s not. You walk the around gorgeously textured monochromatic landscapes, looking for environmental puzzles to solve to progress. As you play, you turn “pages” with your finger to collapse the current environment and unfold the next one. It’s pretty cool.  Read More →
