Review: Pathogen

John Conway's Go of Life
Very few game experiences start as badly as my first impression of Pathogen: the first thing I tried (opening the options menu) froze the game. The menu is terrible, with shockingly poor tap detection and general poor responsiveness exacerbating the aggravation...

"You're all clear, kid."
What did I do to deserve Ace Patrol: Pacific Skies? I haven't made any grand achievement or even been particularly good lately -- as the howls of torment from the Pocket Tactics Writers' Sub-basement will attest.

Kharé. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.
Kharé is the Lankhmar of the Fighting Fantasy world. It’s Marlowe’s Los Angeles or Batman’s Gotham. It’s a place rife with ruthless slavers, corrupt noblemen, dishonest merchants, murderous thieves, and some rather unusual...

Artemis was the goddess of wilderness, childbirth and P-P-P-POWER SLAMZ.
Wrestling "entertainment"--as opposed to actual wrestling sport--has been described as the modern equivalent of ancient Rome's panem et circense. Bread and circuses to please and distract the masses from a possibly-horse-coupled emperor.

"Stay still. Their googly eye vision is based on- no wait he saw me."
As an adventure-RPG/collect-a-thon in the vein of... well... Pokemon is the most illustrative comparison (but don't put too much stock in that), Monster Adventures is a game about bending insufferably cute creatures...
