‘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.

‘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?

Cooking Dash Review: Tasty

Gamezebo reviewed Flo’s latest mad dash, and has plenty of good things to say about this flavorful dish.

As you can see, things very rapidly roll out of hand in Cooking Dash 2016, but with crisp visuals, snappy and responsive gameplay mechanics, and even with a frustrating (almost) need for IAPs, the game holds up very well as a challenging and fun puzzle game.

‘Fallout Shelter’ Review: Remarkably Fair Free-to-Play

Fallout Shelter is gobbling up all the money on the App Store at the moment, so 148Apps has given it the review treatment. From their 4 out of 5 star review:

Fallout Shelter feels like new twist on management sims, wrapped up in a well-realized and adorably rendered universe. It’s not perfect, but its free-to-play approach is commendable and helps make it worth sticking around for.

‘Guncat’ Review: Bird-Murdering Fun

If there’s one thing cats hate, it’s birds. That’s why the cats in Guncat have taken up the task of shooting all the birds they can train their reticles on. From Pocket Gamer’s 7 out of 10 review:

Guncat is an animated arcade shooter featuring a cat with an enormous gun and an even bigger vendetta against birds… There may not be a lot to Guncat but what’s there is good, clean, bird-murdering fun.

Beast Bound Review: Not Remarkable, but Not Beastly

Gamezebo recently reviewed Beast Bound, a turn-based RPG with bright colors and cool-looking monsters.

Beast Bound is a peculiar adventure with odd little monsters, loads of loot, satisfying battles, and a quirky narrative that will keep you foraging and fighting. It’s worth a try for any fans of classic RPGs.

‘Drylands’ Review: Borrows from the Best

If you’re going to borrow game ideas, borrow from the best. Drylands takes from series like Borderlands and Fallout and mashes them into something completely different. From 148Apps’ 4 out of 5 star review:

Drylands is a solid side-scrolling action RPG that borrows a bit from some rather good games pretty successfully. Although a lot of the animations are stiff and the controls aren’t stellar, itearns some major points for being more than just a shooter. The world, story, and quest structure demonstrate a level of ambition that’s worthy of praise, both because of said ambition and because of its execution.

‘Hitman: Sniper’ Review – Captures the Magic of the Series

148Apps has reviewed Hitman: Sniper and found it mostly a successful game, but with some flaws. From the 4 out of 5 star review:

Aiming and shooting within a single environment avoids being bland because Hitman: Sniper has a lot of variety packed into its details. The leaderboard system, unlock tree, and mission structure all keep things interesting. Though the single level could be a sticking point, having one environment allows players to get better at the game, which makes the leaderboards more interesting and – more importantly – lets players feel more like Agent 47 each time they play.

‘Xenowerk’ Review: Dual-Stick Shooting at Its Finest

Xenowerk is a pretty traditional dual-stick shooter, but that doesn’t mean you should overlook it. It’s a five-star worthy game, says Touch Arcade:

Xenowerk boasts 50 levels, spread across three worlds. These levels are pretty much the same, just differing in size and difficulty across the worlds. It’s not a game with a lot of variety, but does it need it? It’s a game that’s all about running around, making a bloody mess, and being rewarded for doing so. I got a 52x chain on one level, blowing up enemies with a flaming grenade launcher, using abilities to fire rounds as fast as I could, and to run from one group to another. I felt amazing. It also netted me an instant three stars, which felt satisfying because it is such a difficult feat. Then I had to worry about not losing that third star by dying!

Angry Birds Fight! Video Review: Fisticuffs Fumble

Fallout Shelter Review: Tiny Bunker

Bethesda dropped a little surprise during its E3 press conference: Fallout Shelter, a mobile game based on the Fallout universe, is now available on the App Store. It’s not a 3D adventure, but rather a Tiny Tower-type building game that’s actually quite enjoyable, according to Pocket Gamer’s review.

Fallout Shelter is a bit of a slow burn, but it’s a solid casual experience all the same. It looks lovely, and it just about manages to capture some of the grim humour of the main Fallout series.

Angry Birds Fight! Review: Mild Fight Night

The Angry Birds are now starring in their own match three / battle game, but according to Gamezebo, it’s more of a schoolyard scuffle than an all-out war.

Because Angry Birds Fight! is free to play, it’s worth the download for a match-3 or Angry Birds fan. But if you’re looking for a truly addictive PvP battle, don’t put all your eggs in this basket.

‘Hitman: Sniper’ Review – Right On Target

Gamezebo has rung in on the quality of Hitman: Sniper. Turns out they love it. From their five-star review:

Advancement comes via a truly startling number of weapons to unlock in a variety of ways: simple leveling, leaderboard placement and blueprints that need to be completed via drops from assassinated villains. In-game currency is used to power the guns up with both passive and active abilities, all of which come in helpful. The only mechanic I wasn’t truly sold on was the simple score multiplier that comes with using maxed out weapons, simply because it seemed to make some of the contracts based on score a little too easy.
