Some retro games should stay in the past
February 18, 2015 - In a world full of arcade-inspired indies, it's intriguing to see an actual remake of a classic arcade game. If you've played the original Q*bert then you'll generally know what to expect. A few additions and updates help freshen it up a bit for the modern age, but is it worth downloading a copy or is it only for fans? Before we get to the review, it should be mentioned that this package contains the original Q*bert (which is a pretty decent bonus), but it won't be covered in this review since I've already reviewed it here.

All these primates want is a little freedom, happiness, and bananas
February 13, 2015 - Genre-mixing has lead to both wonderful and disastrous results in the past. Jungle Rumble blends rhythmic controls with strategy elements in an intriguing way, but is it worth monkeying around with or should you throw it away like a warm handful of feces?

A boy and his bot
February 5, 2015 - It seems like buddy-platformers are still in style after all these years. Although Kick & Fennick continues this tradition by teaming up a kid with a robot pal, it won't fail to impress with its unique and challenging gameplay mechanics.

Will the princess finally get her just desserts?
January 19, 2015 - Fat Princess has had a few incarnations over the years and this installment sees her royal plumpness in a freemium match-three puzzler. Although this may set off a few red flags, its clever utilization of RPG elements makes it quite an enjoyable experience. However, the question remains; is it worth sticking around for dessert or should you cut this meal short?

To joust, or not to joust, that is the question
January 14, 2015 - Sometimes a game comes out with a title that explains everything you need to know. Obviously, this is a game about jousting while shaking a spear up and down. Although there's a bit more to it than that, you already have a firm understanding of what to expect.

January 12, 2015 - Joe is back and now he wants to be a movie star. Why not give him a hand by controlling him through many different movie sets while driving a variety of vehicles? Trust me, it'll be fun! But, be careful; Danger is involved.

Dave seriously needs to go to rehab
January 7, 2015 - Very few games succeed in recreating the look and feel of the retro arcade era quite like Woah Dave! does. You'll find yourself playing over and over again while trying to beat your high score without the burden of opening a roll of quarters.

So, what am I supposed to do next?
December 21, 2014 - Fairune may look like a basic retro action RPG, but looks can be deceiving. Besides battling foes and leveling up, you will find yourself lost in plenty of obtuse lateral-thinking quests and spend most of your time simply asking, "What do I do now?"
