Review: UHR Warlords

04 Mar 2014 0
  • iOS

UHR Warlords addresses the question of what happens when you take a pretty good tactical battle game for two players and add heavy metal. The metal comes in the form of artistic input and music from Demonaz, a Norwegian musician of some renown, and a brilliant fit for the dark...

Review: Out There

27 Feb 2014 0

  • iOS

I met artist and developer Michael Peiffert--one half of Out There's production team--at Eurogamer's Rezzed expo last summer. Writer FibreTigre couldn't make it, which was a real pity. His nom de plume had me hoping that, Daft Punk-like, he would only appear in public wearing a stuffed tiger head and...

Review

Bounce the drops off some floating springs, then slide them down a metal plate, then maybe call a plumber?
Enigmo: Explore is the third in a series of physics-based puzzlers (a genre for which we need a better name, and don't suggest PBPs, I already thought...

Review: Coldfire Keep

25 Feb 2014 0

Rats. Why did it have to be rats?
The entire plot of Coldfire Keep can be wrapped up by paraphrasing the famous Mallory exchange about Mt. Everest: Why should we explore your dungeon? Because it’s there.

Review: Tengami

So. It would seem this lighthouse is important. Probably.
Playing Tengami makes one realize just how seldom it is that a game shoots for tone above anything else. Sure, other titles might evoke certain moods in turn, favoring one particular vibe over another in the course...

Review: Qwirkle

  • iOS

The game nicely highlights all of the legal places you can put a tile. If you approach one of the worse moves, it sighs.
Perhaps you've never thought about it like this, but Scrabble is partly a trivia game.

Meanwhile, on the island of Sodor...
Upon loading Merchants of the Sky for the first time, you’re met with a rather beautiful 3D world consisting of islands floating amongst clouds. As the tutorial began, I realized that, not only did it look good, but it’s also...

"The Persistence of Margarine," --Salivate Daíly
Some—and this could depend on the day of the week—consider the sight and sound of two fresh slices of bread popping golden-brown out of the toaster one of the sweetest things one can wake-up to.

Review: Kahuna

06 Feb 2014 0
  • iOS

Kahuna was a well-received 1998 Günter Cornett board game with about the loveliest, gentlest theme available: building bridges between tropical islands. You could almost get a tan just from playing the game, and the rules are simple enough for a child to grasp.

Review: Outpost Luna

04 Feb 2014 0
  • iOS

There are eight-million stories in the lunar city. This will be one of them.
If Outpost Luna was a physical board game, instead of an original digital one, I would expect the box cover to have a glowering European noble staring at me, like so many...
