Dungeon defense receives an action movie twist in Forgive Me My Henchmen, coming to iOS and Android

Dungeon defense receives an action movie twist in Forgive Me My Henchmen, coming to iOS and Android

Forgive Me My Henchmen takes the classic action plot - wronged hero on an one-man army rampage through countless foes - and lets you play the other side of that story, a satrica lane defense strategy game that pits you in control of the henchmen and their base’s defenses. Similar to the classic Dungeon Keeper titles, Forgive Me My Henchmen presents your base in 2D pixel art and provides an array of bad guys and obstacles to place in the path of the rampaging hero. Simple grunts as fodder, doors to slow his approach, explosives to deliver damage, posters to boost morale, even special units like Janitors...all strategically positioned to work in tandem and overcome the hero.  A…

Survive relentless waves of aliens in sci-fi shooter Let Them Come on iOS

  The hero of Let Them Come has the right idea for when you’re trapped in a shadow facility ovverun by hordes of ravenous alien horrors. No hiding, no sneaking about, just get a big gun and hold them all off for as long as you and go down fighting. That tile is a statement of intent, challenging you to face pixel-art waves of enemies and bosses in this new shooter out now on iOS. Let Them Come is almost as simple as that title implies; from behind your stationary heavy weapon, you attempt to survive increasingly tough pixel-art foes, complementing your main gun with special ammo, secondary items like grenades, and perks and upgrades to modify your loadout. Lacking the movement…

UMAI! Review

Like a good plate of sashimi, Umai! understands that less is more. This sushi-munching puzzler has you controlling a monster's tongue as it tries to eat its way through a conveyer belt of fishy treats. You begin by selecting one of five peckish creatures. Each has a unique pixel art design that sits somewhere on a spectrum between distressing and wonderful. Once you've chosen, you are instantly surrounded by twelve plates of sushi. You control your hungry beast's frog-like tongue wit…

Review Terry Cavanagh By Alex Beech, 4 years, 2 months ago
VVVVVV Review

Originally released back in 2010, Terry Cavanagh's VVVVVV has been a long time coming to iOS. A lot of this time has been spent making sure the touch controls live up to original's button-based system. It's a huge consideration for this precision platformer as any issues would ruin the experience. So, it is with some excitement that we can say that Cavanagh has pulled it off. The story begins with your character Capt. Viridian telling his crew to abandon ship as the vessel is sucked i…

Block Legend Review

Review Hanaji Games LLC By Alex Beech, 4 years, 5 months ago
Block Legend Review

Like most puzzle games, Block Legend is all about trying build a high score. The difference here is that rather than simply trying to match coloured blocks to get points, you're fighting a string of fantasy-themed, randomly-spawning opponents in a charming 8-bit world. Different coloured blocks have different effects in battle. Depending on the properties of the tiles, matching two or more touching squares gives you the power to attack or defend. This means you have to keep a car…
