Master over-the-top tracks in Oddrok's Best Rally, releasing next week on iOS

Oddrok's Power Hover was a smartly-designed runner that used sci-fi variety and hazards to make its stages feel fast and unique. Their next major game Best Rally follows those same tenets, combining rally drifting with puzzle mechanics. Promising 31 racks, each is a short sprint of often-physics-defying racing, through loops, over jumps, around steep hairpins. Precise drifts might help you reach the end of some tracks, but Best Rally have a wealth of other surprises along the way. Moving barriers to evade mid-drift, sometimes manually activated by buttons on the road. Sinkholes in the midst of tracks threatening to drop your car into darkness. Four rally cars, leaderboards, and achivement…

Hidden Gem of the Week: Puzzlepops!

 At a glance, Puzzlepops might be quick to dismiss. It seems much too sweet and charming to be a tricky and challenging puzzle game. But while it may be all familiar concepts and puzzle design, Puzzlepops delivers a bevy of satisfyingly difficult and clever brain-teasers. Along a structure of nodes and path, you need to maneuver candy pieces into the properly colored and sized spots. That last part - size - is crucial, as like candies can combine into larger chunks. On these increasingly claustrophobic grids, where space is a premium and there are different candy types clogging up paths, figuring how and where candies need to be so they can meld never ceases to a challenging aspect o…

Unorthodox multiplayer game One Hour One Life is headed to iOS and Android

In some ways, One Hour One Life is familiar. It has all the hallmarks of the popular survival genre: crafting, gathering resources, building shelters, other players running rampant. But that title describes its most unique attribute and secret to its generational pacing. "One Hour One Life" says it quite plainly: you have one life and it lasts an hour.

As an infant, you must trust and rely on older players to protect you, while as you grow older, you must choose to protect and care for new baby players. Each passing generation exp…
