Bacon: Enter the Hanger Zone

I’m a vegetarian. So putting bacon on everything is a strange experience for me. And I mean…everything. Cookbooks, inspirational quotes, money, hairdryers, Kevin Bacon…the list goes on. Little indie company Kamibox is responsible for bringing us such a weird and oddly-satisfying experience. Bacon – The Game is the third in the food series and comes after many happy downloads of P...

Bacon – The Game

Put bacon on E V E R Y T H I N G !2 Have you ever tried bacon on… … ice cream? … Piña Colada? … the United States of America? from the creator of Pancake – The Game and Burger – The Game. Bacon – The Game is the third part of the food series, a collection of mobile one-tap games with whacky physics. In every game, controls are super simple: Touch = rise pan, release = lower...

Zero Sum: Video

Zero Sum is a math puzzle game where your only input is placing plus and minus signs in between numbers in a math equation in order to get the equation to equal zero. The game came from the frustration the developer felt while watching movies like Good Will Hunting and The Social Network, and realizing that his love for frantically writing an equation on a whiteboard would never be realized due to...

Zero Sum: Making Math Fun. And Weird.

If you love numbers and bad B-movies, there’s no finer candidate for your game library than Zero Sum. Actually, I take that back. You don’t even have to like numbers. I am a prime example of this. Can’t remember own age? Check. Uses fingers and toes to count stuff? Check. Thinks the number 4 is the best number because it just sounds pretty? Checkity check. Pardon me, I do believe...

SCUM

SCUM – a new survival game is coming to an internetz near you. Oh.. Emm.. Geeeeeee. What is SCUM?

Subwords: Pass Me the Beer and Pretzels, Please

My husband asks me if “Taft” is actually a legit American president. I shrug and head for Wikipedia. Several seconds later, we learn that William Howard Taft was the 27th President of the United States. And that his name is linked with “fattest presidents” and “bathtub”. I feel strangely enriched. Thanks Subwords. A blend between trivia, word games and frantic b...

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

Florence is the story of a young woman and the heartracing highs and heartbreaking lows of her very first love.

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...
