Supertype: The Concrete Levels

Supertype has released a new level pack called “The Concrete Levels”. Turns out, it lives up to its name. Yup. It’s super-hard. Click here for our review of the original game.

Hardback: Call Me a Literary Padawan

Did you know that “anil” is a word? I didn’t. But my AI opponent has just scored a preposterous 4 points on a word that doesn’t exist in my vocabulary. So much for my university degree in English. On the bright side, I have been meaning to combat exposure to cat memes and emojis by expanding my vocabulary. So I’m glad to add Hardback to my arsenal of board game apps. Developer Fo...

Istanbul: Digital Edition – As Close to a Market as You’ll Get with a Board Game

My take on board game ports has increasingly been “yes please”. So I was excited to see Acram Digital bringing Rüdiger Dorn’s Istanbul to mobile, especially with it being such a high-scorer on Board Game Geek. I have to admit that I’ve never played the physical board game. But I’m no stranger to similar economy-based games (Jaipur comes to mind for various reasons) so right off the bat, Istanbul f...

Florence and Me: My Relationship with a Mobile App

As I write this, I have a warm cup of coffee on my desk. I’ve lit a candle. The mellow strains of the compositions of Kevin Penkin (the composer for Florence‘s soundtrack) are piping through my speakers. Because if Florence has taught me anything, environment, feeling and, as the Danish say, the hygge of any experience matters. It matters a lot. I feel like I’m going to be a litt...

Golf Club: Wasteland

After the Great Ecological Catastrophe the ultra rich move to Tesla City on Mars. The rest of us died. Now, citizens of Mars take flights to Earth and play golf in the ruins of civilization. However, one of the Mars mission pilots cannot fit in the new Martian society. The homesick pilot uses his connections at Golf Club: Wasteland for one last solo trip to Earth. Golf Club: Wasteland is an atmosp...

Golf Club: Wasteland

“Why,” is my initial reaction to games involving golf. It’s not a game I enjoy playing in real life, much less virtually. Fortunately, Golf Club: Wasteland is less about men in polo shirts (sorry if you’re into that sort of thing) than an atmospheric version of Angry Birds. And having said this, I really want you to dispel all images of green pigs and rotund birds because t...

How does a p fall? How much does an r weigh? And how does the dot over an i sound?

Supertype! Not Just a Game for Nanas

  The name Supertype might make you think that this is for people who like Scrabble and crosswords. I have nothing against these people (being one myself) but I would be very sad if someone overlooked Supertype as a game only your Nana would play. Sure, the game’s aesthetics has a bunch of backdrops that look like vintage wallpaper. But floral patterns aside, Supertype is, at its very h...
