"If this was all a test, what was the point of it?"
Fair warning: there's spoilers in here. Device 6 is the one of the year's most unusual and original games, and it deserves your attention.

He looks scary, but he's just trying to tell you one weird old trick to having great abs.
Page 1: Your adventure begins with the death of your best friend. A character you’ve never met, but I need you to feel sympathy for.

Listen. Everyone. Mages can wear armor now. Check your prejudice. It's 2013, not 1960.
Combat Monsters is a complicated game disguised as a simple game in turn pretending to be a complicated game. But it's still pretty straightforward.

Review: Sheepland

31 Oct 2013 0

The setup on the iPad is pleasantly spacious, much like a large island devoted to herding only nineteen sheep.
Sheepland has a casual-friendly art style, relatively simple rules which offer multiple viable strategies, plays fast, and it's sold at a single price, with no in-app purchases.

Review: Empire

Your time is gonna come.
Empire is billed as a Civilization-style 4X game, but that's a bit misleading. Civ is a big arena-filling pyrotechnics-and-smoke-machines show that's grown more decadent with each passing year.
