Monday Morning Quarterback: Farewell to Sandlot Games, and Goodbye to Innovation in PC Casual Downloads

Oct 10, 2011

It can't be denied that there are major changes going on in the casual gaming market. I’m not talking about the rapid growth and increasing relevance of social games, nor the rise of hidden object adventures as the dominant genre.

Tradewinds Review

Jun 16, 2011

TradeWinds is a pirate-themed game that blends treasure-hunting, exploration, and combat…which is a little odd to see just a week after Playfish shut down the similarly-themed Pirates Ahoy. TradeWinds is about what you’d expect out of pirate-themed games on Facebook now, full of fights with rivals and chances to scour deserted islands for lost treasure. It also features some less typical gameplay elements, including the ability to travel between island cities buying and selling goods. It’s a game that makes good use of the pirate theme without feeling like a complete rehash of other pirate games.

Westward Kingdoms Review

Dec 20, 2010
