The games we gave 4’s to in January were Run Roo Run, Star Marine: Infinite Ammo, Scramble With Friends, Smash Cops, Windosill, Puzzlejuice, Triple Town, Hank Hazard, and Order Up!! To Go. But there can only be one Game of the Month, and this month it’s Jazz: Trump’s Journey, a wonderful, unique platformer from Eggball Games. (more…)
