Zombie Flick is mindless fun, but only for a bit

Look, I like games where you flick things. Those are fun, a lot of the time. But even though Zombie Flick has much flicking, it is not really that much fun.

Stickman BMX is the least fun platformer I've played this week

CheeseMan is addictive and lots of fun

I've played a lot of phone platformers in my day, but few really grab me and keep me coming back for more. CheeseMan, though, is one of those. It's horrendously addictive, because it can be very difficult while still maintaining a fun factor. In CheeseMan, your objective is clear: survive the journ ... Full Article »

Burn the City is hot, but doesn’t always ignite

Burn the City’s title perfectly sums up its gameplay. Placing you in the shoes... er, claws of a fire-breathing newborn lizard, you’ll reign fire on human cities that stole your family.

Pix’n Love Rush is like catnip for retro gaming fans

Pix’n Love Rush is a love letter to classic side scrollers that were prevalent in the ’80s and ’90s. With a visual style that harkens back to handheld portable systems such as the Game Boy and Virtual Boy, to major consoles such as SNES, it’s a walk down the 8-bit memory lane. If you grew up ...
