Soul Historica Review

by Sam Riedel

The JRPG factory known to us as Kemco just keeps on trucking. Every month, they’ve got a new mediocre-to-good game out, which is pretty impressive in itself. The fact that all these games look pretty much ... Read More

Block Legend Review

by Sam Riedel

If there’s one genre of mobile gaming that’s gotten even more tiresome than the endless runner, it’s the “match-three” puzzle game format. It’s not just because Candy Crush is so ubiquitous (and King Entertainment is a ... Read More

Pathogen-8

Pathogen Review

by Amanda Lynn

There’s nothing quite like a classic board game to get the ol’ noggin working. There’s also nothing quite like bringing your foes to bitter ruin with your logic prowess. Pathogen lets you do both, combining the ... Read More

Road of Kings Review

Detective Grimoire Review

by Melissa M. Parker

Detective Grimoire is a stylish game. In fact, it’s stylish enough to make me wonder if it can stand on that alone. In pop culture, style often dominates over substance. Audiences were dazzled by John Cameron’s ... Read More

Syberia Review

by Joe Matar

Originally released in early 2002, Syberia was a point-and-click adventure well-received by gamers and critics alike, probably because the genre had grown so stagnant that “basically competent” was misperceived as “wildly imaginative.” Now, it’s on the ... Read More

Small World 2 Review

by Will McCool

Digitized board games aren’t a new phenomenon.  For most board games it’s unnecessary. Simulated Parcheesi isn’t any worse than the real thing but there are no marked improvements about the experience either. There is a class ... Read More

Chainsaw Warrior Review

There is something fundamentally odd about Auroch Digital’s decision to bring the 1987 Games Workshop tabletop game Chainsaw Warrior to Android. As we all know, a board game has to use simple cues to create a vivid adventure: ... Read More
