Old Man’s Journey: Vacation-Mode Activated

Suspended somewhere between the realm of “game” and “visual novel”, Old Man’s Journey delivers an experience that you’ll probably be expecting based on the title alone. Playing as an old man, your journey starts when a letter arrives. Donning a backpack, the old man’s encounter with places and things sparks memories that allow you to see into his past and unveil the story behind the mysterious let...

SEE/SAW: Where Dying is a Strategy

If See/Saw was a baked good, it would be a chilli chocolate cake. Familiar, addictive, and yet hiding a punch that delivers when you think you’ve got it down. You start off as a character that needs to go through “tests”. Some professor dude (who looks weirdly a lot like you) takes you through the tutorials. Although he does a great job of it, he takes a rather nonchalant attitude to the fac...

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? Well, the developer says: The world’s unquenchable need for entertainment has turned towards bloodlust as entertainment behemoth TEC1 is set to premiere season two of its television sensation SCUM. This new season moves the contest from the rugged, enclosed indoor arenas to the lush forests, rolling f...

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...
