Hidden Gem of the Week: Blown Away

Feature By Christian Valentin, 1 month, 4 weeks ago
Hidden Gem of the Week: Blown Away

Blown Away: Secret of the Wind is a unique auto-running puzzle platformer from Black Pants Studio, that stabds out due to its vibrant art style and clever mechanics. Mother Nature has swept away Hendrik's home and hair;  now he must travel a land of deadly gaps, monsters, and traps to retrieve them, using his pair of teleporting boots to leap past hazards  Those boots provide the backbone for Blown Away's smartly-designed stages; your boots recharge their teleport with each step, and tapping on the screen teleports you to that location, even as you're falling to certain doom. The charging element is what turns a relatively simple mechanic into a puzzler. Your boots only charge w…

Alto’s Odyssey brings desert boarding to the App Store next week

 The autorunner has been one of the prolific genres on mobile, seeing all manner of 3D and side-scrolling variants. But Alto’s Adventure was perhaps one of the most unique, with its gorgeous wintry visuals and the trick-chaining flow of its gameplay. Now Alto’s Odyssey is headed to iOS on the 22nd, swapping the snowy vistas for dunes, sandstorms, and desert cliffs.  At its core, Alto’s Odyssey promises the same smooth and familiar boarding action of its predecesso, challenging you to time backflips for speed boosts and grinding on cables and rails to collect elusive coins. However, this time, you’re boarding through the dunes, canyons, and temples of a my…

Hands-on with Monster Snack, the colour matching auto-flyer where you try to escape a gigantic fish

Hands-on with Monster Snack, the colour matching auto-flyer where you try to escape a gigantic fish

Monster Snack is an auto-runner with a small twist: to keep running (well, flying) you need to match the colour of the gems flying past your ship, to the colour of your engine. On paper that might be quite an easy task, but as you begin hurtling forward at great speeds, with the ever-present threat of a giant fish behind you that just waiting for you to run out of power so it can eat you whole, it's a whole lot trickier. Here's my hands-on with Monster Snack, which is out right now on iPhone and iPad.…

Monsters, Inc. Run Review

Review Disney By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 6 months ago
Monsters, Inc. Run Review

It was bound to happen - the freight train of Disney Interactive's mash-up of successful iOS franchises with their own properties has run in to a bit of a snag. Where previous titles managed to blend its inspirations up and come out with something new, 'Monsters, Inc. Run' opts to simply balance the freemium auto-runner to create something more akin to what the first title should have been. As such the best moments of this title match those of Mega Run by Get Set Games without much in…
