My first few plays of Ascension reminded me of reading Haruki Murakami as a teenager. It was unmistakeable that there was something great going on, I just couldn't wrap my head around it. With Ascension - as with Murakami - there are rewards for the patient.

Foosball is the devil.
There isn't anything like New Star Soccer anywhere else in the App Store or in the Android Play Store. NSS lets you live the life of a star athlete - or at least, the tabloid newspaper version of it - in a...
