Tetris + Candy Crush Saga = Sorus Shield - Out now on iOS

Sorus Shield is an interesting beast. It has obvious influence from Tetris — but it’s also more of a level based puzzle game like Candy Crush Saga. And it works!

In this game the pieces move from bottom to top and match in the familiar way. The difference being that pieces can move freely when parts of them are matched. This game also riffs on the Tetris model by having multiple varieties of obstacles and variations on the theme that are added as the levels increase.

All in all, Sorus Shield is a fun little game that works really well on mobile.

True Skate

Flashback Game - skateboarding classic True Skate

True Skate has been around for two and a half years, a lifetime in mobile games. But the cool thing is that it’s still getting upgrades through $0.99 in-app purchased new levels. Unexpected, but very awesome.

In True Skate, the player controls a skateboard with two fingers, making this almost like a music timing game. Each move of the finger, or coordinated moves of two fingers lead to a trick or some sort of control of the board. Don’t worry, it sounds insanely hard, but the tutorial does a good job of guiding new players through the game.

It’s a very fun escape.

Warhammer 40,000: Freeblade

Mech shooter Warhammer 40,000: Freeblade Will Please Many

The latest in the Warhammer super-genre is out in this free to play mech battler. Taking command of an Imperial Knight mech in this shooter / battler is pretty epic. The graphics are pretty good, but the game is not without issue. Then again, what game is?

Mobile-centric bite sized missions and constant upgrades to the mech repeat as the player navigates through an endless set of missions to help retake a planet. It’s a shooter lovers perfect mobile game, that’s for sure. But it left me wondering what if the free to play mechanics weren’t so strong and the game had a stronger story and action focus?

Those with an iPhone 6s or 6s+ can take advantage of 3D Touch to have extra control of the weapons, as shown during the iPhone 6s launch keynote. This game will please many — but I found that the missions were just too short, and the required upgrades too numerous for the game to be enjoyable for me.
