Hoplite is a strategy/roguelike that seems simplistic at first sight, but quickly bares its fangs. Does it get too difficult too quickly, or is it worthwhile?

Review: Spell Quest – Grimm’s Journey (iOS/Android)

February 9th, 2014 by


When looking at Spell Quest – Grimm’s Journey, gamers will likely be divided into two primary groups: those who hate it because it’s basically Bookworm Adventures or those who love it because it’s basically Bookworm Adventures.

I’ve been saying for years that Bookworm Adventures would be a perfect fit for iPhone or iPad. That kind of gives away which grouping I fall into, doesn’t it?

PopCap had their chance. Now it’s time for the Bacon Bandits to shine.

colossatron review
Colossatron: Massive World Threat has one of the most jarring love/hate arcs ever experienced in a game – initially impressive then diving immediately into disappointment, only to inexplicably grow on you as you fight through the letdown. In then end, Colossatron’s simple nature is eclipsed by its more enjoyable elements, but it takes a little time to get there.

The Fighting Fantasy book series — an upgrade of the Choose Your Own Adventure formula — hits iOS, but how does it translate to an app? With full-fledged RPGs and other complex game types available on mobile, is an interactive book worthwhile?
