Holedown, the latest game from the mind behind twofold inc. and rymdkapsel, is all about seizing the means of production, at least according to my worm (ghost? ghost worm? space ghost worm?) friend at the bottom right of my screen. I assume they’re my friend — they call me comrade, after all — as they have been sticking with me on my journey to dig deeper!
Life Is Strange, developed by Dontnod Entertainment and published by Square Enix, has finally made its way to Android and the Google Play Store, officially releasing all five episodes on Wednesday. As expected, the first episode is free, while the full pack comes in at $9. I can’t recommend it enough.
Reigns: Her Majesty is a delightfully wicked game that many have likened to a fusion of Game of Thrones and Tinder, with the player taking the role of the Queen as she manages the day-to-day operations of her kingdom by swiping right or left to make decisions. It just got a big new update.
Something about the presentation of Hexologic hooked me in a way that made me persist through my initial confusion and into what is simply a very well-put together puzzle game that is exactly what it says it is.
It’s extremely rare that I lead an article with a content warning and then proceed to talk about a game I enjoy quite a bit, but that’s the case with Dr. Meep, a match-three puzzle game where you play the role of a telepathic therapist progressively helping cartoonish characters through various mental issues via a match-three puzzle interface with a twist.
Greenheart says at one point they lost 400 reviews, then the next day lost 430 reviews, followed by drops of 655 and “500-plus,” respectively. That’s a staggering number of reviews, an the question here is whether or not they were legitimate. Greenheart says they are, and at this time, there is no reason to suspect otherwise given the response on Twitter and general positivity surrounding the game’s Android release.
If you need a fresh infusion of games on your Android devices, look no further than the latest Humble Mobile Bundle. The 22nd iteration of the mobile bundles, there are several games that are worth your time, and we’re going to break it down by tier.
I haven’t put together a full review on this game, but I’m enjoying it an awful lot. There are definitely some similarities to the TiNYTOUCHTALES games like Card Crawl and Miracle Merchant, and some of the strategies and design remind me of Solitairica, a phenomenal card battler. It’s safe to say I’ll be putting a lot more time into Meteorfall in the near future.
Ashworld is all about surviving with limited supplies, with a gameplay hook that includes different control schemes for the top-down action of the open world and the side-scrolling action it shifts to when the player character enters buildings.
As is the case with Neko Atsume, Tabikaeru is incredibly adorable, with very chill gameplay that doesn’t ask a lot of users. Gameplay comes in the form of light interaction with the space around you as you send your frog out on various adventures.
