CrossMyWord Review: What’s a four-letter word for “Good effort, but needs improvement?”

Jul 15, 2013

If you enjoy solving crossword puzzles, then you already know that doing so is a bit of a lonely pursuit. It’s usually just you, your smartphone or your magazine, your pencil (or your pen, if you’re confident), and a swaying mass of commuters that may as well exist in another world while you match wits with your puzzles. CrossMyWord aims to bring a “With Friends” vibe to crossword puzzles by letting you solve and create puzzles with other players. There are some interesting ideas at work here, but the lack of polish will probably drive crossword fans back to their solitude.

Battle Dragons Preview: Battle dragons: much cooler than passive-aggressive dragons.

There’s no debate that Spacetime Games knows how to make great titles, and make them well.

Soldiers Inc. Preview: All is fair in love and Facebook war.

Jul 10, 2013

It’s getting pretty amazing to see how far the world of Facebook games has come from the old cartoony farm. Case in point, Soldiers Inc., a gritty new wartime experience that looks like it should be turning heads on a home gaming console instead, rather than a popular social media platform. The game comes from Plarium, whose past Facebook titles such as Total Domination and Stormfall: Age of War make no mistake that the growing developer is no stranger to the hardcore gaming crowd.

Arena of Heroes Review: Arena of Heroes does little to really shake up the MOBA genre.

Jul 3, 2013

No matter how well you know your way around your favorite MOBA, one thing can still hold you back when the action heats up: not being fast enough on the mouse and keyboard. Or as Futurama's Robot Devil succinctly put it, “stupid fingers.” Arena of Heroes by Sneaky Games and Zattikka solves that problem with an ingenious turn-based solution, but several other aspects keep it from really shaking up its genre.

Pirate Storm Review: Pirate Storm isn’t bad enough to walk the plank, but it’s not worth a casket of Spanish doubloons, either.

Jun 3, 2013

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me, I guess. Pirate Storm is a web-based adventure/massive online game (MMOG) from Bigpoint that puts you in the pantaloons of history’s most intimidating sailors. The premise alone makes it sound like you’re in for a swashbuckling good time, but between the game’s repetitiveness and lack of stimulating exploration, these be dull waters.

Wakfu Review: Wakfu is a beautiful MMO, but it needs more "MM"

Jul 25, 2012

The MMORPG is an interesting case study. Here in the West, most of us equate the term “MMO” with games like Star Wars: The Old Republic, Runescape, and World of Warcraft. Yet, from a global aspect, a large portion of the most populated MMOs come from the East, including Ragnarock Online, Dungeon Fighter Online, and Dofus, each sporting tens of millions of users each.

ScribbleMix Review: ScribbleMix provides a breath of fresh air to the Draw Something formula.

Jun 10, 2013

When Draw Something was released last year, its impact was unlike any mobile or social game before it. The game featured no competition, no scoreboard, and no achievements. Two players drawing pictures for one another was enough to make the game feel more social than most social games before it. Now, Disney has entered the drawing game space with ScribbleMix, which takes that simplicity of Draw Something and adds its own style. It lacks some originality, but it still manages to feel fresh and fun.

Champs: Battlegrounds Preview: LET'S GET READY TO (strategically) RUMBLE!!

Jun 4, 2013

Described as the first “Multiplayer Online Squad Strategy” game, Champs: Battlegrounds looks to take the careful planning of a strategy game, the real-time battles of an action game, and fuse it all together with heightened graphics and exhilarating gameplay. Quark Games has already been making a name for themselves by producing high-octane mobile gaming experiences, like we learned from their last title Valor: Trial by Sword; and everything we’ve seen so far from Champs: Battlegrounds looks to be keeping up with this new gaming tradition.
