Pixel Defenders Puzzle has a bit of a branding problem. It bills itself as a match-three game, but that's misleading and actually does the game a disservice--don't expect Bejeweled or Piyo Blocks. The word “defenders” conjures up thoughts of tower-defense, but that's not what this game's up to either.

Pull out Tangerine Dream's 1974 Phaedra LP, place it on the turntable, put on some nice ear encompassing headphones, and space out to the slow strategies of Rymdkapsel.

My all time favorite World War II flight simulator is IL 2 Sturmovik for fighter combat and compelling campaigns. It must be said that I still play Microprose’s B17 Flying Fortress: The Mighty 8th which is fun but definitely needs an overhaul for modern computers. The great thing about IL2 is that the game has almost constantly been updated since its initial release in 2001 and while the newest version, IL2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad, does not have nearly the number of aircraft available to fly as earlier IL2 releases which offered nearly 80 flyable planes covering both the wars in Europe and Asia. 1C has fixed many problems in previous versions and has upgraded the graphics in a stunning manner! But, there is rust on this baby which is almost unforgiveable based upon the price.

Review: TurtleStrike

eeGon's TurtleStrike indeed has quite a lot of strikes -- although some of them are against it. It's multiplayer-only, freemium, and its central innovation (which Eegon seems to think so original they dub it "live turn-based") is really just wego with a short turn timer.

Artificial intelligence is hard. I’m not even a software guy, and I can figure that out. To create a group of ‘1’s and ‘0’s that can mimic human thought and intuition seems to be the Gordian Knot of the current Age.

Review: Tactis

Keywords: tactical, permadeath, squad, fantasy, no in-app purchases. Tactis ticks some excellent boxes. Whether you'll enjoy the full package rests greatly on your willingness to indulge indie developer Savant's quirks.

Review

Breach & Clear is a tight, focused laser beam of a game -- at least part of it, anyway. Presumably, the special forces foursomes under your command had all manner of adventures in the run-up to the moment where they kick down the doors of the enemy compound and start...

When the institutions of the past meet the inventions of the future, there is war. This is the central conflict of the Deus Ex series. Security versus freedom, stability versus evolution, humanity versus, well, transhumanity--the Deus Ex series pits these concepts against each other and revels in the sticky morass...

The overhead action-adventure game died a death so complete we seemed to forget it existed at all--as though the reigning emperor had ordered all monuments to the prior regime carved over. From the mid '80s to the mid '90s, it was a mainstay genre with AAA appeal, led of course...
