Pigeon Wings Review

Pigeon Wings by Ignacio Schiefelbein hardly resembles the typical pigeon lifestyle. There are no bread crumbs, and certainly no flapping or cooing. However, it does contain one thing, in abundance. Speed. Some games opt for varied challenges. Some implement puzzles, or tricky levels, to keep things fresh throughout the experience. Pigeon Wings opts against these … Continue reading Pigeon Wings Review

3..2..1..Grenades! Review

Local multiplayer shooters can be a tough sell in this day and age, when people are accustomed to online play, and four-player split-screen parties are few and far between. Maze-like level design, cartoonish violence and varied objectives were a huge part of GoldenEye 007, Perfect Dark, Ooga Booga, and even the multiplayer shooter mode in … Continue reading 3..2..1..Grenades!

Cubiques Review

Cubiques by Dilmer Valecillos is Edge meets Q*bert, a block-rolling puzzler with a simple premise: eliminate a set number of floor tiles, then escape to the level's exit. It's not an exceptionally unique concept, but the game's design is so clever and well-presented that I couldn't help but play through every last level in one sitting. The game's … Continue reading Cubiques Review

For all their benefits, touchscreens are unfortunately cursed with a lack of tangible feedback, and aside from a few specific titles which benefit from onscreen arrows and buttons, virtual controls in mobile games are often clunky, unappealing, and result in wasted … Continue reading Miles & Kilo Review

Death Road to Canada Review

It's tough to avoid being a cynical crank about zombie culture. After mowing down thousands of them with a pea-shooter, bashing their skulls in with a crowbar, and stealing their twinkies, there seems to be no end to the abuse that zombies are willing to take. Like the creatures themselves, zombie culture plods on, refusing to … Continue reading Death Road to Canada Review

Gravity Galaxy Review

Gravity Galaxy by Pixelbyte has all the qualities I've come to expect from titles published by Ancient Games. It's packed with charming low-poly graphics, intelligent puzzle design, and filled to the brim with unlockables. At launch time, the gravity puzzler's playtime is admittedly a little short, but despite the general lack of replayable content, the game is … Continue reading Gravity Galaxy Review
