Beware of Hidden Fees

I just downloaded a game to review and the first thing I saw was “Free Trial.” okay, free trial to remove ads and play for fun? Where’s the catch? The catch was in little tiny grey letters underneath, a subscription fee. Okay, I thought, no big deal, a lot of companies have subscription services now…….

Review: Nexomon

Nexomon (from VEWO Interactive inc) can be found on Android and iPhone, and… we all know what this game looks like. It plays like that other game, it has similar systems. But it’s on your phone! And everything, from the levels, to the medicines, to the story and creatures, is completely unique. I have wanted a monster…

Review: I Love Hue

I Love Hue (by Zut Games LTD ) is a zen style puzzle game with relaxing music, and beautiful colors. The object of the game is simple; rearrange the pieces so that the gradients form across your screen. In each puzzle different patterns will be locked (signified with a black dot in the center). I’ve…

Review: Harry Potter, Hogwarts Mystery

A while ago I played the Sims mobile addition. Everything about Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery (by Jam City) reminds me of it. Both games act similar, have similar progression, similar art style, and both have awful requirements for the quests. First, let me say it is a well designed game. Beautiful environments, interesting story line,…

Impressions: Oculus Go

I did an impression post about Google Cardboard a while back. Now I’ve had some time to play with Oculus Go. The Oculus Go is a stripped down model, with a low price, meant for those interested in VR, but not the high price. Other systems like the Rift and Vive cost over $500, the…

Review: Story Dice

A while ago I bought a few Rory Cube packs. They were supposed to be good story idea generators, but they mostly sit on a shelf now. I thought it might be easier to find a digital set of story cubes. Enter Story Dice (by Zuidsoft). You can buy Rory Cubes on mobile as well,…

Review: Armory & Machine

Armory & Machine is a different style of clicker. You start by making heat, and use the heat to upgrade the machine. Eventually you can make workers, and use the workers to run the machines. It’s a constant upgrade, adding soldiers, ammo, and fighting your way out of a crater. The interesting part about Armory…

Review: Fluffy Fall

Need an incredibly cute, quick paced, FLUFFY game? Fluffy Fall (from WHAT games) might be for you. There were a group of games called “droppers” in Minecraft a while ago, and Fluffy Fall is similar to that, with more cuteness thrown in. You have your fluffy square, and you drop through a lot of obstacles….

Review: Raft

I know that I usually review mobile games on this blog, but I have to stray from the usual today. I’ve been playing hours, and hours, of Raft (from Axalot Games) today and I just want to share it with you. Raft, like many resource gathering survival games, is grindy. Understandably. But it has the…

Review: Mixee Labs

A simple platformer with a science lab twist. Mixee Labs (from Kitaker) starts out simply. Mix two components, and they will create a creature for  your to run through the level. Earn more coins, buy more items to mix, and see how far you can go. Each character you can create has a different set of…
