Space Marshals 2 Review: a dual stick shooter that’s even better than the first

Released by Pixelbite, space Marshals 2 is the sequel to the original game. To check out our review of the first one, click here. To be quite upfront, both of these games are very well-made. And there are things that have been improved upon with the sequel, while managing to not take a step back anywhere. It’s rare that you see only Improvement in a sequel, without something unintentionally offsetting that.

The Little Fox Review: Thank you Mario! But our Prince is on another world…

Let me start by saying first of all, without a doubt, this has to be the cutest android game of 2016. Secondly, don’t for a second let the cuteness fool you. Because if you do, you will be watching ads until the next morning. This game is deceptively tough.  Like any highly addictive drug, it perfectly skirts the line between frustration and “just one more.” Call me a glutton for punishment but i think, at the end of a crazy year, I have just found my new favorite game.

Day of the Tentacle Review: An excellent romp through time

LucasArts is one of those studios that I really appreciate. Twenty some years ago, they released a string of excellent adventure games that went WAY outside of the bread and butter of Star Wars. Day of the Tentacle was one such game. Set up as the sequel to Maniac Mansion, Day of the Tentacle carries over many (though not all) of its characters, and takes place five years later. I really enjoyed this game when I was in High School, and was thrilled to be able to play it again over the last few weeks, via GeForce Now.

Grim Fandango Review: An entertaining romp through the afterlife

Grim Fandango is a point-and-click adventure game that was originally developed and released by Lucas Arts for Windows, back in ’98. It was a game that has always intrigued me from afar, with it’s apparent flair that draws inspiration from the Day of the Dead, but I never actually got around to it. With its release on to Android, I was looking forward to sinking my teeth into it.

Skyforce Unite! Review – Does Kairosoft earn their wings with this new F2P title?

I cruise through the sky in my  jet. The rolling plains below me are nothing more than a green blur. I look to my left and see Carrie Potts, my trusty mercenary, flying beside me in her bright pink biplane. The fearful merchant who paid us for safe passage follows from afar. Suddenly the clouds break and the world shifts; It’s time for a battle. My battle anthem begins blaring through the speakers as I ready myself for my next foe – a beast of tremendous strength and a bloodlust that knows no rage. A giant… cactus?

Bankai and Chill – Bleach: Brave Souls Review

“Free-To-Play” are arguably the three most dreaded words in mobile gaming, but KLab Games nearly redeems the much loathed business model with their stellar ARPG, Bleach: Brave Souls. While many F2P games leverage lethargic rates of progress known as “pay walls”, KLab took a gamble on shipping a title that has so much content not hidden behind a pay-wall, that Brave Souls is easily comparable to a full priced game on a dedicated gaming platform such as the Playstation Vita or Nintendo 3DS. Brave Souls strikes a perfect balance between accessible content and in-app-purchases that affords players an opportunity to enjoy the full game without being forced to pay money to proceed further.

All Your Base Are Belong To Us: Star Wars Base Command Review

Thanks to titles such as SolForge, Order & Chaos: Duels, and Heartstone, collectible card games have emerged as an incredibly popular genre on mobile platforms. That EA wished to capitalize on the popularity of the genre and add to the proliferation of TCGs in the Play Store is no real surprise. However, that EA decided to put forth a TCG in the form of the Base Command mini-game included in the Star Wars Battlefront companion app, is quite the surprise.
