Urban Legend: Shin Hayarigami (Blindman) – Gameplay Videos and Impressions

Urban Legend: Shin Hayarigami (Blindman) By: I-Play.Co.,Ltd.  I admittedly knew very little about Urban Legend: Blindman before trying it, but the premise sounded interesting to me. It's a murder mystery horror game in the form of a visual novel, with the murderer apparently being an urban legend called Blindman. It starts off promising, with a disturbing image of a man tied up and begging for his life before someone uses scissors to cut out his eyes. We then meet the detectives who are Read more [...]

Death Coming: iOS Review and Gameplay Videos

Death Coming By: Sixjoy Hong Kong Limited  The Next Studio's Death Coming has a really clever premise and I was enjoying it for a while. The idea is, you died and now have to become a reaper (yes, kind of like Dead Like Me). But instead of just reaping specific people, your goal is to kill everyone in a scene. You don't have to do so in order to pass a level, only to get a higher score, so there is some forgiveness here. The problem is, I don't like games wasting my time, and this one does Read more [...]

‘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. Because these practices Read more [...]

Cotrio: Review and Gameplay Videos

Cotrio By: Bartosz Bialek Bartosz Bialek' Cotrio is a surprisingly stylish game for a math puzzler. The developer tried to make it a relaxing but challenging experience, and I think he achieved that goal. The artwork and animations are minimalistic and remind me of Carl Burton's Islands with their monochromatic 3D landscapes. Together with a chill soundtrack, the game offers a calming experience despite its challenging puzzles. The way Cotrio works is you're given six circles, or nodes, set Read more [...]

The Bonfire: Forsaken Lands – Review and Gameplay Videos

The Bonfire: Forsaken Lands By: Xigma Games As someone who liked the idea of Raw Fury's Kingdom: New Lands more than actually playing it, I was still very much looking forward to Xigma Games' The Bonfire: Forsaken Lands. My biggest issue with Kingdom was having to start over from scratch every time I messed up. It's hard to even know you're not doing well until you get to a point where you're low on resources and can't fight off the enemies. I loved the artwork and atmosphere, but just couldn't Read more [...]
