Revisit: Desert Golfing

All I know is that it goes on … and on … and on. You’re golfing in a desert, a sparse desert with no scenery. Except once every couple hundred screens you might see a cloud in the sky or a cactus in the background. What made those appear? Did I do anything? Can I interact with it?

Warps is the newest iteration on the Flow formula

Flow is one of the classic mobile games of this generation, featuring hundreds of puzzles where the only object is to connect colors from point A to point B without intersecting. It’s simple, minimal and effective. Recently, the fourth game in the series, Flow: Warps, was released on Android. The aesthetic of Flow hasn’t changed since the original release years ago, and it doesn’t need to. Since the original Flow came out, Big Duck Games have put out several packs of levels — a game called Flow: Hexes and a game called Flow: Bridges. Each of the games are free to play, with additional packs and the ability to remove ads behind a small fee. Hexes changes the shape of the playing field and bridges creates one-way intersections for the lines. In Warps, you have to create flows using a number of warps, two or more depending on the difficulty,…

Destination Review: Solitairica’s Primal Champions DLC

I have sunk countless hours into Solitairica, the singleplayer rogue-like card battler from Righteous Hammer Games. I’ve beaten everything there is to beat in the game, multiple times, and I doubt I’ll uninstall it any time soon. With the recent release of a DLC pack, dubbed the “Primal Champions,” I was eager to dive in for more. In Solitairica, you’re battling the armies of Stuck in the land of Myriodd to unseat Emperor Stuck, the final boss. You have a normal deck of sequential Solitaire-style cards, but the cards in the deck take on one, or a combination of two, energies: attack, defense, agility, and willpower. Energy is used to cast spells based on the type of energy accumulated. You gain energy by drawing cards or by destroying cards of that energy type. You destroy cards by drawing a card that is one less or one above any of the…

Minimalist puzzle game Linelight releases on Android

Linelight is the first game from developer My Dog Zorro (yeah, there’s actually a dog, and they post pictures of it on Facebook, of course) and it’s a good one, provided you like minimalist puzzle games, of which there are an abundance. But Linelight stands out, at least to me, for impressive visuals, interesting mechanics, and a very good vibe that’s easy to sink into for long periods of time. It first released on Steam and PS4, and is now available on the Google Play store. You control a line, moving along another line, and your goal is to avoid the bad lines, hit switches to complete lines and ultimately … get to the end of the line. In short: there’s a lot of lines. It’s very intuitive, easy to pick up and hard to put down. At the time of writing, there’s over 100 five-star reviews and just two…
