Though developed by Pieces Interactive, Leviathan: Warships (henceforth LW) is published by Paradox Interactive. If that doesn't mean much to you, I'll quote Wikipedia: "Paradox regularly releases patches to their games long after a game's initial release. Some games have required patches shortly after release to make them playable.

Review: Ace Patrol

13 May 2013 0

Ace Patrol is a small revelation. It's not just the quality of the game itself (excellent, as a matter of fact) but that it's a fine production from a triple-A console/PC outfit. After stumbles great (Borderlands Legends) and small (Might & Magic Clash of Heroes) one might wonder if major...

If you would have told the 14-year-old me that in about 30 years I’d be able to play those gamebooks I was always messing with, but on an electronic device that fit in my pocket, I would have probably asked you what the hell you were doing in my bedroom.

In lieu of the usual, tangentially related, somewhat belabored introduction, I'd like to begin with this: Transformers Legends is a bad game. Yep. Sorry. Just going to get that right out front. Bad. Ungood. The opposite of pleasurable, enriching, coherent, tubular, and radical.

We've been waiting entirely too long for the arrival of Slitherine's Panzer Corps on iOS. I know this because grognards starved for operational-level wargames descended in a boil upon my Twitter feed and email inbox the other day after the release of Glory of Generals, an iOS game with a...

Review: Star Command

Star Command is a story two years in the making. The Coombs brothers -- first-time game developers operating under the name Warballoon -- made a tantalizing pitch back in 2011, promising iOS and Android gamers a sci-fi combination of Kairosoft's Game Dev Story, X-Com, and The Sims: truly something for everybody.

Several iOS games have attempted to follow in Master of Orion's 4x (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate) footsteps: Ascendancy, Starbase Orion, and the ill-fated Empire of the Eclipse have all trod this territory with big, long-haul games of galactic domination designed to be played over hours and days.

Rumor has it we're in something of a board game renaissance. True, this is a rumor that's largely being spread by Your Friend Who Really Digs Board Games, but, still, have you played Settlers of Cataan yet? What'd you think? POSERRR...

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.
