Review

As far as reviews go, this one might be the easiest one I’ve ever written. After all, Legend of Grimrock originally released for PC and Mac back in 2012. It currently holds an 82 on Metacritic and had enough praise heaped upon it that a sequel was released last year...

Review: Coup

Some early bugs, like this poorly positioned window which obscured 2/5 of the data, have been quickly addressed by the developers. Banana & Co., I tip my monocle to you.
Very briefly, Coup is free-to-play Diplomacy in a bottle.

Review: Last Voyage

Neighborhood's something of a food desert, but the rent's not bad.
Last Voyage is a puzzle game which trades just as heavily in mood and the suggestion of plot as it does in clever mind-benders.

Review: Pickomino

I give Reiner Knizia a hard time because his games tend to be abstracts with a thin veneer of theme painted over the top and I, for the most part, don't enjoy abstract games. There are exceptions, of course.

This Excel theme is called "Spreadsheet of DOOM!"
iNigma's Kingsport Festival advertises itself with the tagline, "Why choose the lesser evil?", which nicely reflects the game. You play as an eschatological cult leader in a Lovecraftian universe, attempting to summon an Elder One to rule the...

Ready to change the world
It’s been nearly 18 months since we last traveled with the sorcerer from Analand on their quest for the stolen Crown of Kings. Back then, inkle Studios seemed to be content simply creating incredible digital gamebooks.

Review: The Trace

Yeah, you wouldn't want to be rude.
I’m sure a few will remember the 1993 pretender to the Police Quest throne, Blue Force. It was a beveled take on the complex underbelly of Sierra’s serve and protect series, dispensing an easy-going tale of one rookie cop-turned-PI...

Kavitha, your Skype connection is breaking up a little bit.
It's an odd feeling, not enjoying a Sid Meier game. A rational person's first response to disliking a Woody Allen movie or a Krispy Kreme donut or an André 3000 verse is to check himself.

Isn't this where they found Frankie Carbone in Goodfellas?
Call any particular cast of characters “interchangeable” and, for most games, you'd be speaking in the pejorative. But for Swap Heroes 2, the second action-puzzler of its name from developer Chris Savory, rolling with a foursome of...

Review: Ento

Kevin Spacey turns in a surprisingly chilling performance as the voice of a grasshopper who runs a protection racket.
In 2001, Zendo turned science into a boardgame, but wrapped it in a mystical Buddhist theme.
