The Executive Review: A Roaring Good Time

What’s a top-tier businessman to do against the forces of the wild? Fight. Fight. Then fight some more. Touch Arcade’s review of The Executive assures us it’s the right thing to do.

The Executive is one of the best mobile games of 2015, and is something that you need to play. It’s so amusing and so much fun, that you’re doing yourself a disservice by not playing it.

‘Furdemption’ Review: Almost Purrfect

This puzzle platformer may be soaked in feline blood, but that doesn’t make it any less fantastic. From Touch Arcade’s 5 out of 5 star review:

The game has plenty of content, with 100 progressively-harder levels and more coming according to the developers. The beta version included a level designer, but the developers pulled it to focus on the game and plan on adding it in a future update. A level designer with shareable levels would give this game immense replayability because of all the different components already in the game. Even without the level designer, the game more than justifies its $2.99 price, especially since the game has no IAP. Initially, the developers pondered going F2P with IAPs but eventually went with a premium price that might rise as they add more content (which means get the game now if you like it).Furdemption is a trully great puzzle platformer with a whimsical protagonist and a colorful-yet-gory art style that stands out among the competition. Add to that a fun soundtrack and the promise of more features to come, and this game’s a winner.

‘Fort Meow’ Review: Cat Physics

This physics puzzler is about creating forts to fend off the cats trying to get your attention. From 148Apps’s 3.5 out of 5 star review:

A lot of Fort Meow’s charm keeps you in a forgiving mood, not least because of the cats becoming hardier and you also learn more about your Grandfather through his journal. It is a little on the short side though, and such issues stop Fort Meow from becoming one of the greats.

‘Samurai Blitz’ Review: Fresh but Familiar

Pocket Gamer has rung in on the quality of the endless runner Samurai Blitz and found it to be pretty freaking good. From the 8 out of 10 review:

Combined with a double jump ability, you’ll find yourself capable of chaining elaborate slice-hops to rack up the combos. It’s deliciously moreish.

There are a number of scenery changes, boss characters, and unlockable scrolls and swords, but in truth you’re just doing the same thing repeatedly – and in this case, that’s just fine.

Tales From Deep Space Review: Pretty Deep

It Came from Space. Deep Space. Gamezebo’s review for Tales from Deep Space outlines a puzzle game that’s thoroughly enjoyable.

I quite enjoyed my time with Tales from Deep Space and surmise you will, too. It’s a colorful and easily digestible collection of engaging character-swapping puzzles with heart, and if you’re looking for a few hours of fun on the go, you can’t go wrong here.

‘Divide By Sheep’ Review: Baa-rilliant

You might not think a game about moving sheep would be a blast, but you’d be wrong. From Pocket Gamer’s 8 out of 10 review:

Divide by Sheep is a game about plonking sheep on rafts. Not willy-nilly though – that would be mental. Instead you’re herding set numbers of the farm animals off to safety.

At least that’s what you’re supposed to be doing. In practice it’s a lot tougher than it sounds. And it involves maths. And, more often than not, murdering some of your flock so you can get the right amount onto the boats.

Tales From the Borderland Episode 3 Review: Continuing Greatness

Telltale’s Tales from the Borderland continues to be great, according to Gamezebo’s review for episode 3.

Overall, Tales From The Borderlands Episode 3 continues the excellent Borderlands-based adventure through new territory. I just wish Telltale Games released them closer together so I could enjoy the cohesive story even more.

LEGO Batman: Beyond Gotham Video Review – Solid, but Not Surprising

AppSpy has a video review of LEGO Batman: Beyond Gotham. The game allegedly contains the same levels of fun and humor you’d expect from a LEGO game, but the formula is wearing a bit thin.

‘Siegefall’ Review: The Formula is Getting Tired

148Apps has reviewed Gameloft’s latest Clash of Clans-alike and has found it mostly enjoyable, but little lacking in fresh ideas. From the 3.5 out of 5 star review:

Building your kingdom is a fairly typical process though, and a lot of the time you’re going to be waiting for timers to complete and cursing the fact that so much depends on resources. Sure it’s satisfying to get stronger and stronger, but the format is feeling a little tired now.

‘Dragon Quest VI’ Review: Keep ’em Coming

Turns out Square Enix was serious about bringing the bulk of the Dragon Quest series to mobile. The latest is quite excellent, says Pocket Gamer, in their 8 out of 10 review:

Dragon Quest VI is full of flaws. But it’s also full of charm and appeal. Fans of old-school JRPG’s will already have snapped this up. For the rest of us who might have a passing interest, the charm and appeal are just enough to push you through the grueling grind.

‘Piloteer’ Review: Up Up and Away

Touch Arcade has reviewed the ragdoll physics game Piloteer and found it to be downright incredible. From their 5 out of 5 star review:

Piloteer [$2.99], the latest “P”-titled game from Fixpoint Productions, seeks to recapture that feeling and shrink it down into a mobile-friendly package. And, I’m happy to report, it pulls it off. It’s absurdly challenging, but incredibly fun once you get the hang of it. Except there’s a good chance you won’t ever fully “get the hang of it”, but don’t worry–that’s actually part of the fun.

Sonic Runners Review: Flat Tire

According to Touch Arcade’s review, Sonic Runners is fun enough, but aggressive panhandling for in-app purchases really puts a damper on the experience.

The core of Sonic Runners is fine. This game could turn around in the future, because the actual gameplay is fun. They just need to pull back on how utterly aggressive and pushy the current monetization is.

Piloteer Video Review: Fun Failure

Ragdoll physics game Piloteer is all about learning to fly with a jetpack — an activity humankind was never meant to undertake. PC Magazine says it’s a fun undertaking, even if it’s painful-looking at times (humans should not bend that way).

‘Tales from Deep Space’ Review: Fun and Thoughtful

Amazon doesn’t rest on its laurels. In addition to delivering diapers promptly to my doorstep, it also makes mobile games. And 148Apps thinks its Tales from Deep Space is pretty good. From the 4 out of 5 star review:

At times, Tales From Deep Space can feel a little more clunky than it should, and it’s a little slow building, but it’s a mostly fun and thoughtful puzzle game. While experienced gamers will have played something similar, they should still be pretty happy to give it another shot. Tales From Deep Space has a lot of charm going for it.

‘Her Story’ Review: Chilling

Her Story is a unique game about navigating a police database and watching a witness’s testimony. 148Apps liked it quite a bit, giving it 4 out of 5 stars. From the review:

Hannah’s husband has gone missing and it is up to you to uncover the truth by sifting through the remnants of “her story.” The gameplay is super simple: just enter a word into the search bar and up to five videos will be displayed. I found it useful to take notes of words to search during the videos, then I ended up with 6 pages of notes that if read back look like the scrawlings of a madman. Each video has a time stamp so if you feel particularly enterprising you can figure out the order of every clip. There’s also an amusing minigame hidden in the Trash folder that harkens back to old Windows freeware like Mine Sweeper.

‘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.

‘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.

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.
