PixWing Review: Blue Skies With a Bit of Turbulence

PixWing is a flying simulator that takes you up, up, and away in a beautiful airplane. Or a beautiful dragon. Or a flying DeLorean, which, as we all know, is the very definition of beauty. It might be wrong to call PixWing a “simulator,” since it’s a pretty uncomplicated flying game. There are no gears…

Raider Rush Review: Straight to the Top

Lava. The eternal enemy of platforming heroes. Mario burned his britches on lava pools, as did Crash Bandicoot, Ratchet and Banjo. Now Raider Rush’s pixelated archaeologist man is tasked with escaping the hot death of molten magma. Our hero in Raider Rush has no official name, but I’ve named him Louie, because that’s what was on…

Stormblades Review: The Forecast Calls For Action

So the Park’s scientists (a species with a history of bad decisions) do a…

Tiny Keep Review

She leads the effort to help your avatar escape Pershdale Dungeon, leaving notes of advice at the start of each level. In joining her you’ll…

Star Wars Rebels: Recon Missions Review

Star Wars Rebels: Recon Missions is a perfect example of when a movie (or TV show, in this case) shouldn’t be made into a game. I’m not saying that there are no good examples of when this works, Star Wars Battlefront and Republic Commando are my two favorite games, ever. However, Star Wars Rebels is…

iO – A Physics Platformer Review

iO – A Physics Platformer is an incredibly fun game for iOS (iPhone, iPad). Right of the bat, it was clear that this title from BluBox and Gamious was both graphically and mechanically impressive. Created during one of the any Global Game Jams, iO is an iOS game that requires the user to think differently…
