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 covers the puzzle adventure Faraway 3: Arctic Escape, a game reminiscent of the tactile brain-teasers such as The Room and The Witness. Concluding the Faraway trilogy, Faraway 3 is simpler than both aforementioned games but its switch-and-tile-manipulating puzzles are praised as being satisfying and fun to solve.
Over on Pocket Gamer, Susan Arendt explores the tough decisions in the zombie apocalypse strategy game Rebuild 3, discussing how the game's systems blends the humanity and struggles of the members of your expanding group with the strategic elements of its scenarios and resource management.
Finally on 148Apps, Harry Slater provides another list of must-have best-of-genre games, this time highlighting iOS's best strategy titles. From the hulking mech armor of Templar Battleforce to the simulatenous tactics of Frozen Synapse and charming RTS challenge of Iron Marines, the selections cover a varied spectrum of mechanics, aesthetics, and diffculty.
