Hamza Meer’s review of Shadows

Shadows is a very difficult minimal game that’s got that “The Line” feeling to it! Take your red cube through the most dangerous levels and avoid obstacles that literally blow you up if you touch them! Playing this game reminded me a lot of The Line, which was similar to Shadows, but Shadows goes one…

Hamza Meer’s review of Darthy

Ahh Darthy, I actually waited quite long for this game to come out, and it was definitely worth the wait! Although it’s very similar to everyday platformers, certain features of Darthy just make it stand out. You wake up in the hospital and must go on an adventure to save your robot friends’ souls (do…

Fishy Bits

We were very serious when we said that this game was the new Flappy Bird, in fact the game itself is practically just a renewed flappy bird, but this time, done extremely well! Fishy Bits is a fish game, as most of us should be able to tell from the title. By tapping on the screen your…

Totes the Goat

Birds have beaks, goats eat green grass, and beavers don’t eat goats… We are right, aren’t we? Well, Totes the Goat by ATOOI is a game that doesn’t quite go by these general rules of nature… Set on a grassy blue hill made up of cubes your mission is to guide a very square goat around a lush…

Dead Center

Dead Center is simply an amazingly addictive game. If it weren’t for the ads that appear every 15 games or so, not very often considering it is a free game, we may all very well still be in a mad trance, tapping on the screens of our devices like a bunch of brain dead zombies. If you…

Hyspherical 2

Hyspherical One was described by its developer as “A game that looks beautiful but may just bring out the ugliness in you!” Hyspherical 2 is the powered up little brother of this evil game, and really lives up to its reputation… For a game with no time limit, no distractions, and a soothing sound track, it…

BRICKCRASH !!

For many developers pong is one of the first real games they ever make. Though simple and rather repetitive, after being played for hours on end, Pong has a special spot in the majority of our hearts. BRICKCRASH is a game that carries the Pong spirit to another level with power ups, power downs, character abilities, and even…

Gelato Flicker

Ever heard of JUDO? Based entirely on throwing people, JUDO is a fairly popular martial art in Japan. Even though we’d heard of JUDO, for some reason we hadn’t heard of Gelato flicker, (a game where you throw ice cream!) until just a few days ago… In this crazy game, your mission is to literally…

Running Circles

“I’m not so sure about the circles you’re in…” have you ever had someone say this to you? I haven’t, (Who would ever say that about the Edamame Team?) but in the case of Running Circles, the circles you choose to be in, or not in, really effect how long you survive. In this simply ingenious…

Gopogo

Have you ever noticed how strange the physics in games are? How do Mario, Sonic, and most other characters, manage to change the direction of their fall in mid air? It doesn’t really make sense. Gopogo by Nitrome is a game that makes a little more sense… One of the biggest features that makes this game interesting is the…

Sling Kong

Have you ever thought gorillas were cute? It was a bit of a controversial topic when we first heard the name of this game “Sling Kong”. Somehow we never imagined a gorilla to be so cute. Sling Kong is a game filled with chubby round animals with remarkably stretchy arms. The aim of the game…
