‘Fortnite: Battle Royale’ is the Kind of F2P I’d Like to See More of on iOS

Fortnite By: Epic Games If you've been following me for a while, you probably know that I'm not a fan of free-to-play (F2P) monetization that change the nature of a game by penalizing you for failing and/or give a leg up to those who spend real cash. The App Store is filled with games like this, whether it's paying for extra lives or moves in a game like Candy Crush Saga, consumable undos in Deus Ex GO, or loot boxes in pretty much any "free" competitive game these days.

Iron Marines: Walkthrough Guide, Tips and Tricks

Iron Marines By: Ironhide S.A. This is a walkthrough guide with hints, tips and tricks for the iOS and Android strategy RTS game, Iron Marines by Ironhide.

‘Stolen Thunder’ Review: It Stole My Heart

Stolen Thunder - A Unique Action Puzzle Adventure By: Jason Nowak I knew very little about Jason Nowak's Stolen Thunder, but I saw the trailer and loved the look and sound of it. In fact, if I were to design my own game, I would probably want the same color palette. It did seem a bit reflex-based, so I was nervous I might get frustrated with it early on. But I've wasted far more than a dollar on games, so I took the chance. And I could hardly put it down until I beat it. The game is slick Read more [...]
