  • Dark Echo features some the most innovative gameplay I’ve ever seen. The goal is to move your character through dark corridors using only sound to navigate as you search for the exit. But be careful there are traps and monsters around every turn. Right off the bat, I just have to say that this “horror” game is not very scary, if you’re looking to be afraid, this is not really […]

  • I’m not going to mince words here; Cute Contest is literally an app with nothing but cute pictures of animals in it. The goal is to vote on the cutest of the cute. That’s it. That’s all you do. It’s amazing. I’m serious. This entire point of this app is just to look at cute pictures of animals. I never thought that an app like this would exist, but now […]

  • If you love the classic movie Office Space, then Office Rumble is absolutely for you. Players work their way up the corporate ladder by beating the crap out of every one of their evil superiors. This game is like the 9-5 equivalent of Street Fighter. I liked this game; it’s the definition of cathartic for the frustrated office worker. Case in point: the battle cry. Every opponent has one, but […]

  • Fyoozd 2 is a match-three-in-a-row style puzzle game set to retro graphics. It’s a decent game, but it’s not really bringing anything new to the table. It’s basically the same as every other match-three game out there. Find three pieces that look the same, drag a line through them, score points. Various power-ups can double your score or give you more time, but that’s not exactly a new idea. The […]

  • Rocket Cars is a blast. Players control their comically over-powered cars through over 60 beautifully animated courses while using jumps and items to destroy anyone in their way. The different tracks, modes, and upgrades keep this game feeling fresh the whole way through. Everything is beautifully designed. The style is cohesive across menus, maps, tracks, and car bodies. When upgrades and cars are displayed in menus, you can actually spin […]

  • Guitar Tricks is a website that’s not messing around. Their app, Guitar Lessons, is perhaps the most comprehensive video app about guitar playing that I have ever seen. Simply put, if you have the drive and the app, you will learn to play the guitar. The app is broken down into four main sections: “I’m a Beginner,” “I’m More Experienced,” “I Want to Learn Songs,” and “Gear and Tone.” There’s […]

  • Springling Swipe is a game about an anthropomorphic spring in the woods bouncing into gems. I’ll level with you; I know that may not sound like the most enticing game in the world, but it’s worth at least a few play-throughs. I think its only review on the iTunes store says it best: “It takes a few tries to get the hang of the motions, but once you do, it’s […]

  • Prankenstein is seemingly a point and click game smushed into an iphone. Players tap on various items to create pranks, then watch a cut-scene as their hillllaaarriiiouuuusss prank unfolds. I apologize for the profuse amount of letters, but they have yet to invent a sarcasm font. Why is this game so frustrating? There are plenty of reasons, but the biggest issue is a technical one. This game is downright awful […]

  • Gibbon: stupid name, great app. It’s not about monkeys, which is what I first suspected, but rather a vision of how education is probably going to be conducted in the future. Using Gibbon, people can create “courses” made of links from the internet that will teach other users various skills. It’s a little buggy right now, but at its core, it’s a solid idea. Gibbon the app is actually just […]

  • Fuel Burner is a puzzle game where players must navigate a fleet of helicopters across building tops to their helipads. Choppers can’t land with anything but an empty tank, and individual helicopters can’t land on the same building twice, so careful maneuvering is required. Endless runners and platformers are fun, but every once in a while I want to test my mind, and I don’t feel like reading a book. […]

  • Honey Run is a surprisingly complex game about helping some bees pollinate flowers. The player must guide bees with twisting paths to their flowers, while being sure to avoid collisions, bugs, and other distractions. Pollen must also be rationed between the hive and the withering flowers, which adds a nice amount of strategy to this little gem. Honey Run is a lot like a banjo; you can’t play it and […]

  • Pengman is a game about helping the title character through a series of puzzles with platforms and keys. But that makes it sound like a regular game, and that is not the case. I think describing the title screen would paint a better picture about what’s in store. It’s a penguin in a scarf standing in some sort of fiery Hellscape while holding a trophy. The soundtrack is stock Peruvian […]

  • I’ve mentioned Flappy Bird in all my reviews, so I figured I should just go ahead and review the real deal- and by real deal I mean most unapologetic copy. Bird Duel is a game where you tap your way through obstacles, and go head to head against a total stranger. And honestly, that’s the secret ingredient to not flinging this game out the window. With the original flappy bird, […]
