This week's top rated published game reviews represent a great spread of iOS gaming. On one hand we have the perfect iOS one-handed portrait mode game you can play on the toilet or while riding the subway... And on the other we have a great port of a fantastic "full" game experience. You can't go wrong picking up both.

PARTICLE MACE, $2.99 [Review] - As a rule, I try not to buy early access games unless I absolutely feel the need to. Particle Mace on desktop was one of those games I stayed away from, but always had in my mind: the concept seemed intriguing, plus it was iOS bound sometime down the road. As such, when I found out that the game was leaving early access and releasing for iOS, I was extremely excited. One, I like seeing games actually leaving early access and becoming finished products, because early access trades on respecting your customer, and delivering on the promise that you're finishing what you started as a developer. Early access can be a really great thing for developers and for players, but when developers use it as an excuse to just make money off of unfinished games, it's saddening. Two, I was excited to actually play the game without compromising my principles. I'm willing to bend them when I feel like it, so I'm perhaps not the person to listen to, but I stick to it more often than not. Well, Particle Mace was well worth the wait. And the developer, Andy Makes Games, was smart in tweaking the game to fit iOS.

Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered, $9.99 [Review] - Celebrating its tenth anniversary, Quantic Dream’s Indigo Prophecy was recently rereleased on PC. Luckily, the developers also saw fit to port it over to iOS under the full title Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered as part of its decennial celebration. As a narrative-heavy action-adventure, Indigo Prophecy was excellent for its time and mostly makes a successful transition to Apple’s portable devices.

    Best of the week is by far Active Soccer 2!

  • squirpe

    Radiation Island for me!

    • Free2Pay

      Exactly. It storms the charts in most countries, gets praise everywhere, but is not in this weeks top games? Bit weird. 🙂

  • metalcasket

    These are the best REVIEWED games of the week guys...neither Radiation Island nor Active Soccer 2 have been reviewed by the site yet.

    • squirpe

      Next time I'll read beyond the headline 😉

    • djstout

      Same here, but the funny part is to see Fahrenheit here, why is it fun? Because they sponsored TA this week... So my question is, is it a coincidence or not?

      • Kenan2000

        I don't think that it is a coincidence...


        ...despite how game turns from a drama detective into an action movie in the end(I really like it but some people might find this fact idiotic)

      • djstout

        I just hope that TA is fair here, I believe they are but what I don't understand is why this game got a really bad score on both PG and AppSpy but it got game of the week review here...

      • Eli Hodapp

        You realize AppSpy and PocketGamer are different web sites with different writers who have their own different opinions, correct?

      • djstout

        I do, but from 4/10 to 4.5/5 ... that's why I don't get it, is this game really good or really not great?

      • TeeDubya1975

        Different people have different opinions... That's pretty much it.

      • Alexythimia23

        Il give you my opinion... This game is fantastic, already downloaded and plays amazing, as with alot of the latest games i would recommend the latest apple devices as possible... But yeah you must be crazy to not give this game of the week, all the work and attention put in this..well theres nothing else like it on ios, and its only going to get better with updates.

      • curtisrshideler

        It's really a love-it or hate-it kind of game. I'd give it an 8.5/10 probably. Maybe even 9. But I first enjoyed it way back in 2006. If someone hates it, though, they probably didn't love it back then. So, this port wouldn't change that for them.

      • djstout

        Yeah that makes sense, I guess it's really a love or hate type of game, never played it so I won't judge the game, it's actually on my wish list

  • Alexythimia23

    Fahrenheit is a great game of the week, and is very worthy. I mean how can anyone not see how big a deal that is, that a huge full gaming experience is available to us yet again. To me a game of the week is the game that can drag me in to its world, so others saying games like active soccer 2 or whatever else... Really??! I respect its their opinion but i think anyone who plays this sort of game will have a more developed taste for gaming so can experience alot more emotions out of it, so for me quick fix games can never deliver as many feels which is why they would never even contend for gotw for me personally. So great choice guys!!
