A safe sits in an otherwise empty room; on top a cryptic letter with a key attached awaits you. So begins The Room, a new “escape the room” style puzzle game from Fireproof Games. Now both the name is a bit deceptive as the game has nothing to do with the room or escaping from [...]
Back in 2001 a little company called Remedy Entertainment released a gamed called Max Payne. The noir story of a undercover cop on the run is most famous for bringing the bullet-time feature to video games. As a fan of pulp and noir it was a favorite of mine back in the day, with the [...]
This is going to be a double review for a pair of mobile games that have been devouring my time of late. Tiny Tower and Draw Something. First let’s get the latter out of the way.
Draw Something is essentially a Pictionary version of Words with Friends. You and a buddy take turns drawing something from [...]
A while back I talked about a game called Orcs Must Die by Robot Entertainment. Lately their newest game Hero Academy has been devouring my time. It is a turn based strategy game for iPhone that plays a little like a fantasy chess game. In fact it reminds me of the old Battle Chess games [...]
Jetpack Joyride is a simple story of a man and his jetpack as told by the official trailer at developer Halfbrick.

The simple premise is that a cardboard box arrives on your door step, containing within an adorable alien creature [...]
Ninjump is my new spare moments addiction. You know those spare moments you find yourself in when your waiting at the doctor’s office, or stuck in line at the bank. Enough time to get bored but not enough to really get into anything with any real depth. Well Ninjump is perfect for those times.
It’s a [...]
Zombies, gotta love them. And lately those always lovable rotting denizens of the undead have been eating up a good chunk of my time courtesy of Playforge’s game Zombie Farm.
It’s an odd concept really, possibly inspired a bit by the hit Plants vs Zombies which I reviewed awhile back. Essentially you’re a farmer growing a [...]
I’ve always been a fan of strategy games, especially turn based games. As fun as an RTS can be I often prefer the more relaxed tactical game play of turn based fare. More chess style tactics and less zerg rushing. Your forced to use more thought in your choices and far less twitch. As I’ve [...]
