Why on earth would anyone buy Afghanistan '11 from Slitherine, after they abandoned the owners of a large swath of their other games? I've got a bunch of their previous premium $20 (plus *substantial* IAPs for campaigns) games, that are literally the reason my iPad is stuck on the previous version o...

Great update Nick--thanks! Agreed. I like the News by Numbers format, always something interesting. I too have never found AR games appealing--if anything, it signals to me that the foundations of the gameplay aren't strong enough to carry the game by themselves, so the dev has added this gimmick t...

If Iron Marines plays (and handles IAP) like their previous Kingdom Rush series of games, I wouldn't worry about the IAP - it's not a pay-to-proceed-past-this-wall kind of thing, it's just helpful extras. They'll undoubtedly offer you special deals/sales occasionally, but not in an annoying get-you-...

Instabuy. Thank you - lots of other things going on at the moment, might not have noticed this if you hadn't put up the review.

What exactly _is_ the difference between a nerf and a debuff? The news of Twilight Struggle moving is slightly alarming - it was one of the most highly anticipated games around here, in the year leading up to its release. Hope it survives the move unharmed. Non-trivial software like that usually is ...

It's like you entirely ignore all of the other instances and articles where we link to apps. "But we get it right sometimes" is not much of a defense for a site where that should be one of the basic minimum requirements for every article before it's posted, as part of the editing/proofrea...

And... the link to the iOS version of Strike Team Hydra which is conspicuously missing from the article: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/strike-team-hydra/id1262093285?mt=8 PocketTactics often no longer bothers to link to apps they mention, so everyone gets to google it themselves. Sigh. Seems kind ...

No idea how the game will turn out, but the "Dresden Files" series of books by Jim Butcher are really phenomenal. I'm usually not a fan of fantasy, but my wife got me hooked on these (started with the then-new tenth book, "Small Favor", to reel me in, then we went through in seri...

Is Panzer Corps getting a 64 bit update from Slitherine? Panzer Corps is 64-bit compatible already (roughly half of Slitherine's apps are). It's on my iPad and not listed in Settings > General > Applications, which shows a list of apps currently on your device that are not 64-bit compatible (they d...

I'm pretty cranky Slitherine is abandoning so many games. They were the company that originally convinced me to pay a premium price for premium games and I expected better from them. I feel the same. I spent a couple hundred dollars on their apps (in part because of glowing reviews on this site, ba...
