Hidden Gem of the Week: Good Fences

Good Fences is an unasssuming little gem of a puzzler for iOS and Android, the kind you might not give a thought at a glance due to its simple aesthetic and mechanic that are hard to get across in screenshots. This geometric brain-teaser takes a very simple concept and wrings over a hundred challenges of shape placing and rotating out of that central mechanic. Take a look at that screenshot below, that is Good Fences at its simplest. Every stage presents you with a shape, and it's your job to surround it with copies of that same shape. It's such a basic seed of a puzzle concept, where even a less-complex shape can prove to be a tricky prospect to surround due to how corners and sides might…

Colourful action-strategy game Super Senso launches in Europe and Latin America

It’s not often you’ll get to witness armoured tanks, hungry dinosaurs, and ghoulish zombies go head-to-head on the same battlefield.

Hidden Gem of the Week: Ending

Aaron Steed's Ending is a minimalist roguelike stripped of all the fluff and filler, exposing a challenging game of life and death decisions and strategic planning, where one wrong move can destroy you. Inspired by chess and board games, Ending casts you as a lowly @ sign, in a maze of dangerous ruthless enemies. Each symbol moves in a specific way or has a special purpose, from moving two spaces in a turn to only being able to attack from a certain direction or firing projectiles. When you move, they move, and one hit is enough to destroy you...or for you to end them. There in lies Ending's strategic gameplay: it's a game where every move must be considered, where you need to think five…

Zany sight gags and dialogue, along with animated figures bring these paintings to life, as you collect items, talk with characters, and solve silly yet logical puzzles to assist (or meddle with) poets and blacksmiths, from quaint towns to…

Hidden Gem of the Week: Blackbar / Greyout

Sometimes it can be easy to forgot the power of words can play in games. Often words are merely relegated to mere UI indications or the names of cool new loot. Dialogue, flavor text, and logs of lore remind us of their importance, while the text adventures and 80 Days of gaming show us how effective well-crafted prose can be But outside of text adventures and word games, fewer still focus on blending the words themselves with the gameplay. Perhaps the most recent examples I can think of are Device 6's use of text to mirror the described environment and Type Rider's platforming journey through the history of typography. Blackbar and Grayout are two word games that use their text to tell thei…

Legend of Coin is a new coin pusher game with a twist

Tokyo-based developer Prope Games launched its latest mobile game, Legend of Coin, in December last year. The unusual coin pusher was developed by former Sonic The Hedgehog programmer Yuji Naka, but don’t expect any lightning-quick hedgehogs to pop up. Monsters on the other hand...   The game centres on your standard arcade coin pusher. You have a shelf of jumbled silver pennies, nudged by a ‘broom’. Use the touch controls to throw more coins on the shelf, eventually shunting those nearest off and into your bank. But at the top of the screen is a little combat arena, where a creature is ready to take you on. To join the fight, you’ll need monsters. Monsters dro…

Meteorfall is a quirky roguelike card battler headed to iOS and Android on January 25th

Powerful magic, special weapons, and more expand your deck as you progr…

Solve visual programming puzzles when While True: Learn() comes to iOS and Android in 2018

Wayout is a clever minimalist puzzler heading to iOS and Android on January 25th

A minimalist puzzler offers a unique kind of satisfication - not too complex as to be overwhelming, while being simple and distilled without being too easy - and Wayout looks like it'll be a promising addition to that category when it releases on the 25th. Befitting its subgenre, Wayout's premise is a simple one: every stage presents you with a grid of white and different colored tiles, your job is to make the entire grid devoid of color. Tapping a tile affects the color of surrounding tiles in various ways depending on color and marking; some change colors in specific patterns, or only activiate specific tiles, or change certain colors. It's through blending togethers this array of mecha…
