Mega Run Review: Mega Fun...Mega pun! Okay I'll leave.

May 31, 2012

People often lament the fact that Nintendo won’t put any of their IP on the App Store. I mean, how great would it to play quick spurts of WarioWare on your iPhone, or hop online for MarioKart on the iPad!? Better yet, what kinds of experiences could a stellar team like the Big N’s cook up if only they were willing to go mobile? Well, thanks to games like Mega Run - Redford’s Aventure, I don’t much care. I’ve got all the polished, whimsical mobile gaming I need.

Tesla's Tower: The Wardenclyffe Mystery Review: A shocking change in the sometimes dull Hidden-object formula

May 31, 2012

I love hidden object games, but I admit I'm not crazy about their general lack of narrative finesse. The majority of them are entirely item-driven, built on the idea of collecting items and figuring out where to use them. Persha Studia's new hidden object adventure, Tesla's Tower: The Wardenclyffe Mystery is a great game because it does what so many titles in the genre do not: it goes beyond using popular hidden object mechanics for their own sake, and puts them to work telling a good story.

Newest Humble Bundle will blow your brain box with awesome!

May 31, 2012

Since its inception, the Humble Bundle has increasingly become the hub for the “who’s who” of indie gaming, offering oodles of great games for a set-your-own-price point you just can’t resist. And personally, during the release of Humble Bundle IV, I thought it couldn’t get any better (I mean, come on, Bit.Trip Runner and Machinarium!?). How foolish of me. How very, very foolish.
