As fans the world over await the December 18th release of Episode VII with feverish anticipation (myself included), many have turned to the recent onslaught of media offerings to get their interim Star Wars fix. With a slew of new EU novels, multiple Marvel comic books, a new animated series and the blockbuster release of Star Wars Battlefront, Star Wars fans have been fed a continuous stream of Star Wars content over the past year. But what of those Star Wars fans that are more inclined to consume content on their mobile devices? Electronic Arts sought to leave no stone un-turned in that regard, but after having spent some time with their recent mobile “RPG,” Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, I am of the mind that this was a stone best left undisturbed.

Space Marshals is a dual stick shooter from Pixelbites. The game is a clever hybrid of the old West, and a sci-fi, hi-tech future. Much to my enjoyment, they hit on everything they were going for. The game has a lot going for it, and very little to complain about.
Neverending Nightmares is a game that was released by Infitap Games. It’s a game that is very simple to play, control wise, but is rich with content. The visuals, the soundtrack, the content, all flow together seamlessly, to make something that is compelling, and maybe even more than a game. This game was disturbing, compelling, and beyond both: extremely enjoyable. Let’s see why.
This is the type of review that I’m not happy to write. Super Heavy Sword is an extremely disappointing game, yet seems to have so much potential. For all I know, it very well could be living up to it, but the game has a bug that precludes me from getting far enough into the game, to really get a feel for what it could be; this is to say nothing of other critiques that I will offer as well. So here is my review, for what I could play.
Double Dragon is a classic arcade and go!e console game from the late 1980s, and into the 1990s. It was a great game and franchise in its time, popularizing the venerated Beat ‘Em Up genre. The success of franchise spawned several releases over different platforms. The original arcade game, and its first two arcade sequels was ported over to Android, and released by DotEmu, as a single collection. As such, this review will cover this trilogy.
Inner world is a point and click adventure game, released by Headup Games. I am a fan of this genre, going back a couple of decades, so I was looking forward to review this once I came across it. Fortunately, the game (largely) didn’t disappoint, with only a few technical flaws in an otherwise solid game.
Anomaly 2 is a tower assault game from 11-Bit studios. This is the middle game of a trilogy, and seems to really push the boundaries for what tower assault can be, as a genre. My experience with the game was a solid one, with very few flaws. So let us dive into this review shall we?
Rewind is a puzzle game that was recently released by Dreamkind studios. And while the game is a puzzler, those puzzles are dropped into the setting of a legal contest. And while fairly short and ending abruptly, the setting is intriguing, as I found myself trying to piece things together as I went along.
Oddworld is a successful video game franchise that has been released by a handful of developers, and has been around nearly twenty years on various platforms, with this game debuting for the original Xbox in 2005. This was a franchise that I’d heard of and was vaguely familiar with, yet hadn’t experienced any (coming in “clean”, in essence). I was looking forward to reviewing this one when I saw that it went on sale, so let’s see what I walked away with.
Ittle Dew (think “It’ll Do”) is what was once referred to as a maze adventure (well before Action RPG was around). Styled after the Legend of Zelda series (at least the older ones that favor the top-down perspective), Ludosity manages to both tip its hat to the classic franchise, as well as fashion a game that is great in its own right. It walks that proverbial tightrope easily.
