Back when I started writing for Pocket Tactics I mentioned something to Owen about growing up in the 80’s and playing a ton of gamebooks as a kid.

"Meg, look at this place. This place looks like a mansion! It's like a mansion, look at all this stuff!"
Let's go ahead and stick "The Nightmare Cooperative" on the list of Surprisingly Literal-Minded Titles, just under Quantum of Solace and above Face/Off.

Review: Almightree

29 Aug 2014 0
  • iOS

The art style in Almightree is a pastiche of Wind Waker meets Bastion, a blend I didn’t know I wanted until now.
Terrible puns are a point of pride here at Pocket Tactics [our rec league jai alai team is called The Groan Gunmen -- ed.],...

Review

Motorsport Manager Mobile is a game that's almost every bit as sexy and exhilarating as the sport it simulates. It's possibly the year's the most complete gaming package on iOS: beautifully designed and deceptively deep, while still being easy to drop in and out of.

Review: Catchup

Catchup often ends up looking like octopi making out. Hey, now--nobody think sinful thoughts.
Nick Bentley designed a well-regarded print-and-play abstract boardgame in 2010. The game so impressed Martin Grider (developer of the very well-executed For the Win, which I reviewed here way back in 2012)...

Over the river and through the woods, to Granma's house we go.
Heroes of the Revolution is a game about reversals. You can see this from the first moment. You're playing as the tiny band of rebels coming ashore in 1956 on a spur of land...
