  • 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 […]

  • All right, A-Maze-In is a game about Mino the Minotaur who must rescue his princess, Mina the Minotaur, from the evil Dark Mino the … Minotaur. Ok, full disclosure: the names are less than great.

  • 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, […]

  • Stedii has you controlling blue and orange dots on each side of the screen as you avoid a never-ending onslaught of grey triangles. You see how long you can go and when you die you start over. That’s about it, there’s nothing else. I love it. The gameplay itself is challenging but not impossible. Simply move the dots away from triangles by tapping the screen. But keeping an eye on […]

  • This quirky game puts you in control of the “Bat Bot” (no, that’s not a typo) as you work your way from left to right, shooting everything that moves. Be warned, the main antagonists in this series are cute animals with bazookas that will explode into jelly like blood spats when you shoot them. The Good: The best parts about this game are the graphics and soundtrack. I really enjoyed […]

  • I’ve always been fascinated by the way watches work. Growing up, my mom had this deconstructed clock in her bedroom that showed the inner workings with all the gears and axels working as one to make the hands on the clock move. I loved to watch it and was utterly depressed when it finally stopped working. To this day anytime I see an app that’s based on gears or mechanics […]

  • I’ve never been big on the winter sports – skiing, snow boarding, ice skating – they all look like a lot of fun, but they’re cold and that’s enough to keep me away. Perhaps it’s the New Englander in me that’s longing to stay warm as the snow season approaches but I really have no interest in hauling myself up a mountain and sliding down in below freezing weather. That […]

  • Feel like taking a walk down memory lane? Join me as we venture back in time to the mid nineties when windows computers were picking up popularity and every kid knew the two most important features of the computer were its ability to play both solitaire and minesweeper. Can you picture it? Minesweeper was always a challenge for me because at the time there was no Google to ask, “how […]

  • If I type “Meow, meow, meow, meow,” I’d be willing to bet more than half of our readers would read it to the Meow Mix commercial song. If you’re the half that doesn’t read it as a song, you either are a dog person or don’t have TV… But for the rest of us the tune is almost iconic. And while I’m fairly certain Meow Mix didn’t sponsor or create […]

  • I honestly think one of the most underrated iPhone functions with game use is the built-in accelerometer. If you’re not familiar, the accelerometer is the thing that measures the force of acceleration, senses movement, speed and even direction. It has plenty of uses with all apps from pedometers to levels, but I find that games rarely take advantage of it. So anytime I come across an app that does use […]
