If you’re anything like me (and you'd best be on your knees thanking Tharizdun you’re not) your memories aren’t categorized by when or what was happening to you, but by what games filled your consciousness and consumed you during that period of your life.

MechWarrior Tactical Command for iOS is Personae Studios' biggest title since, er, Air Hockey. Making the jump from generic bar games to one of the world's most recognised sci-fi gaming franchises is no mean feat -- pity that the game simply isn't my cup of tea.

Rocket Patrol is an ill-designed implementation of a simple time-waster crippled by monetization. It's a moderately attractive adaptation of the basic mechanics of the card-based tabletop classic Mille Bornes, pleasingly re-themed to take place in space.

Strategy & Tactics' former destiny as the mobile incarnation of WWII grand strategy series Hearts of Iron was the most interesting thing about the game leading up to its release. It remains the most interesting thing after.

Hello everyone, my name is Sean C., and... I am a mage. Sorry, it's just... First-timer. Now, you name it: I've been there. Incantations, summoning, illusions, cryomancy, blood magic--everything short of pulling a rabbit out of a hat. My friends turned a blind eye, for a time.

Medieval Merchants made me feel like the admiral of a merchant fleet, peering through my spyglass at a distant Excel spreadsheet. I respect Rapidrabbit for developing a game which almost aggressively eschews showmanship, relying completely on its economic model to generate the tension necessary to keep the game interesting.

A grey-suited detective, having recently descended from orbit, waits in the rain for his contact to show. (The contact’s late.) Three men in lab coats strap a nameless figure to a machine and erase his memory.

If I were in a traveling quartet of fantasy heroes--fighter, ranger, mage and the like--I might say to my companions, apropos of nothing, just questing through the Plains of Sorrow in our usual manner, "Hey, you know what? This whole fellowship thing we have going is a lot like being...

We talk a lot about iPad tactical wargaming masterpiece Battle Academy around these parts. Battle Academy might be Slitherine's first iPad game, but it's far from their first game: the British development house has been around for over a decade, making PC wargames of every shape and size.

Little green army men; Lego bricks; action figures of all kinds: you play with them all in the same way. First, divide them into two forces. One side occupies a base or a fortress, and the other side attacks. It’s a story as old as Troy.
