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.
When I want to play a puzzle game, I tend to go for games that are low pressure: no timer, no move counters, nothing like that. I like to take my time and feel like I can put a game down when it’s frustrating me. Up Left Out definitely delivers my ideal experience in a puzzle game.
I’m still in the beginning parts of the game with not too much unlocked, but I’m really digging the style and feel of the game. For being their first foray into mobile gaming, I’d say HAL Laboratory has a good handle on making a cute and fun game to sink some time into.
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.
Reigns was one of the biggest surprises to hit the mobile gaming world upon its release, and we’ve been VERY PATIENTLY (not at all patiently) awaiting the sequel to the Tinder-meets-Game-of-Thrones swipe-em-up. But we wait no longer: Reigns: Her Majesty dropped on Google Play on Thursday and it’s as delightful as anticipated.
Love You to Bits purports to be a “crazy cute, purely visual, puzzle-filled, point-and-click, sci-fi adventure spanning all around the universe.” Sign me up.
Asmodee Digital has just put out its latest board game adaptation on Android in the form of Ticket to Ride: First Journey. It’s a spin-off of the mega-popular Ticket to Ride, but targeted primarily at a younger audience.
