Papers, Please

$7.99 Buy Now

Papers, Please is a weird game, as it's incredibly difficult to succinctly describe in a way that makes it sound even vaguely fun. Developer Lucas Pope (Of Helsing's Fire fame!) manages to turn pedantry and tedium into gameplay...

Bean Dreams

$2.99 Buy Now

Holy heck, does Bean Dreams knock it out of the park. The first Bean's Quest game from Kumobius was a solid game, with inventive ways to approach platforming on a touchscreen-based device. But after they applied their time-traveling...

DRAGON QUEST III

$9.99 Buy Now

This is the fifth Dragon Quest game I've reviewed in 2014, and by now I'm sure I've hammered in the significance of this series to the JRPG genre, if nothing else. After starting the year with Dragon Quest 8 , one of the more...

Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath

$5.99 Buy Now

The story of the Oddworld Inhabitants themselves is almost as interesting as that of any of their games. Founded by Hollywood veterans to take advantage of the correctly-predicted boom that 3D graphics would bring, the company had a clear,...

XCOM®: Enemy Within

Sequels get a bad wrap. When you consider the benefits a prime iteration of a game or movie has going for it, its no wonder the follow up that lacks the initial reveal often disappoints. Luckily you don't have to worry about...

Tales from the Borderlands

The idea of Tales from the Borderlands was certainly an intriguing one once it was announced. The Borderlands series definitely has a unique feel to it from its setting, dialogue, and characters...

BattleLore: Command

You don't win the tutorial mission in BattleLore: Command . I found that kind of interesting, and in a way, it sets the pace for this strategy board game adaptation. While many strategy games...

Tower Of Fortune developer Game Stew is a hard developer for me to get a read on. I mean, I think if you look hard enough you can find a designer's fingerprints all over just about any game, but...

Proun+

Proun+ is a game that probably should have been on iOS a long time ago. It makes too much sense, the tube racing, with its simple controls that are perfect for taps or tilts, its quick races, they...

I like the cut of Not Doppler's jib. Their stable of 2D games are all solidly entertaining games with zippy gameplay. Their most recent game, Earn to Die 2, is the first time they have revisited...

One of the things I love about RPGs is how wide and diverse the genre is. There are so many different things an RPG can do well to make a name for itself, whether it be telling a great story, having...

I will forever admit to being a sucker for games with pixel art, and Sunburn had immediate appeal to me based on that, but also thanks to its unique premise: instead of trying to save everyone, the...
