Layer Review: A Well-Stacked Challenge

Layer from Gamenauts is accurately described by its tagline: “Simple is hard.” It’s true. “Simple is hard” applies to a lot of tasks in life, actually. Have you ever tried to thread a needle?

WWE 2K Review: Just a Touch of the Big Time

The WWE and 2K have had themselves a nice little run of successful mobile titles, including card games, fighting games and just about everything except … well, wrestling games.

It’s such a shame, then, that society makes us…

Ice Age Village Review

Our first reaction upon seeing this app was – With so many city-building apps out there already, you would think that the makers of Ice Age Village would’ve come out with something more original; especially since the fourth installation of the series, Ice Age: Continental Drift is expected to hit theaters in July.  Well, our…

Despicable Me: Minion Rush Review

Despicable Me: Minion Rush proves there’s still some personality left in licensed endless runner games. Same as every dog picks up a case of fleas sometime in its life, those of us that play video games on a regular basis have been burned by licensed games at least once. There are no exceptions. As a…
