Here’s another weekly round-up of news, previews, and features from Pocket Gamer, 148Apps, and the rest of our sister sites.
On our Youtube page, James Gilmour reviews the colorful physics-puzzler Part Time UFO, praising its perfect-for-mobile design, intuitive controls, and addicting gameplay.
Over on Pocket Gamer, Harry Slater presents a patented Harry’s hot take arguing that the best way to create a faithful Harry Potter game is through the magic of FMV.
Tre Lawrence on Android Rundown writes a retrospective on the Android port of Sonic CD, revisiting its unique time travel mechanic and great soundtrack, although its controls may not match the quality of those other elements.
And finally on 148Apps, Campbell Bell proclaims that Into The Breach - the new mech-vs-giant-monsters strategy game from the creators of FTL - would be right at home on mobile. Given its micro-sized maps, short battles perfect for on-the-go play, wealth of content to unlock and achievements to earn, it seems like a great fit. Campbell even provides a sceeenshot of the game on an iPad display to show well the game and its UI works on a tablet screen.
