Escape from the Pyramid Review: Fantastic Auto-Running

Looks like the game of ancient Egyptian auto-running is actually really good! 148Apps has reviewed it and awarded it 4.5 out of 5 stars. Read the full review here.

It takes a special combination of mechanics and design to make a platformer feel intuitive, challenging, and fast, but also rewarding.Escape from the Pyramid- for the most part – achieves this. There are few games like it that can make a perfect run on a level feel so gratifying.Escape from the Pyramidis a fantastic game because of its great sense of style, speed, control, and challenge.

Stickman Rush Review: A Crossy Road-like

If you like Crossy Road and would like some more games like Crossy Road, check out Stickman Rush, a game that’s a lot like Crossy Road. But despite the similarities, it still manages to provide some charms of its own. And it’s free. Check out Pocket Gamer’s 6 out of 10 review.

You swipe up and down to change lanes, and swiping to the right lets you perform a little hop into the air. You can’t jump over cars, but you can jump over other obstacles like bins, logs, and roadworks.

Star Wars Rebels: Recon Missions Review – Stellar

Star Wars Rebels: Recon Missions is a platformer based on the Star Wars Rebels animated TV show. And, according to Touch Arcade’s 5 out of 5 review of the game, it’s top-tier stuff.

I originally intended to devote about an hour to Star Wars Rebels: Recon Missions to try the game out but ended up playing it right through with only a few levels to go. It’s such an amazing game, one of the best platformers I’ve played.

The Trace Review: Traces of Fun

Detective-themed point-and-click adventure game The Trace is a decent play, according to Gamezebo’s 3.5 out of 5 review. The game doesn’t take any major risks, but should still offer fans of mystery and adventure a good time.

The truly rewarding moments in The Trace are exploring its gorgeous, accessible world and feeling like you are a physical part of it. Opening a door and not knowing what lies behind it; looking around a single room from different angles; finding clues because you have actually moved, unlocked, or turned your way to them.
