Raft Pirates Review

Feb 28, 2013

Life on the high seas is dangerous, especially if you’re a robot pirate. Even if the law doesn’t string you up, a little bit of sea-spray will corrode you as surely as acid. What’s a robot sea-dog to do? Why, live life to the fullest, of course! That means taking down your enemies, picking over the skeletal remains of their ships, and then using that scrap to make your own ship the biggest, ugliest, floating fortress that ever sailed across Neptune’s front lawn.

Astro Garden Review

Feb 23, 2012

Facebook has seen its fair share of farming games over the past few years, but 6waves' latest title, Astro Garden, adds one more to the list. That said, it’s actually one of the more impressive variations of the genre. Though it contains many of the standards players have come to relate to this simulation style, its premise and polish are far more interesting than its cohorts, with a good bit of creativity as well. Nevertheless, the core play is still fairly basic leaving the appeal of the game dependent on one’s opinion of such sims in the first place.

Swords and Potions Review

Jan 25, 2012

Games typically slip us into the leather shoes of wizards, adventurers, and dragon-slayers, but rarely do we see any love given to the merchants who equip those men and women before they go off to seek their fame, fortune, and possibly a nasty manticore sting.
