High scores and secrets await in challenging tactical match-3 Six Match, for iOS and Android

Considering it’s one of the more prominent genres on mobile, you might think you know all about the match-3. But for every common approach to the genre, there might be an interesting twist, from the RPG hybrids like Puzzle Quest to the directional strategy of Swapperoo. Six Match is an equally interesting tale on the genre, hiding myriad mechanics beneath its simple and colorful veneer. Six Match is the new game from Aaron Steed, developer of the puzzle roguelike Ending (iOS, Android), and like that game, Six Match is all about economy of movement. That title is both name and mechanic: you have six turns to make successful matches, six turns to maneuver your white tile into position a…

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

  Meteorfall isn’t the first game to combine the card game with RPG elements and character building, but it might be the most charming. With its colorful art style and stylized Adventure Time-esque designs, Meteorfall promised a humorous approach to the subgenre when it launches later this month. Choosing from four heroes ranging from the floppy-hatted rogue to the broadsword-wielding warrior, battles in Meteorfall are ones of decks and loot, as you draw actions, perks, and gear from your deck; each draw opens the door for new tactics and strategies against the charmingly grotesque enemies you’ll face. Powerful magic, special weapons, and more expand your deck as you progr…

Hidden Gem of the Week: RYB

Hidden Gem of the Week: RYB

This is the first in a weekly series of features dedicated to highlighting interesting, lesser known hidden gems across iOS and Android. With the sheer volume and rate of new releases, it can be easy for a game to unnoticed, unseen; some here may be newer or older, but all are engaging in their own unique way. Picross, Paint It Back, Minesweeper, Hexcells. There’s something uniquely satisfying about a logic puzzler, perhaps how one can solve their challenges without guessing or mistakes, through pure deduction. RYB falls squarely in this category, a Picross-style puzzle game that eschews numbers and grids for colors and geometric shapes. Squares, triangle, hexagons, and other sha…

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

Mobile is no stranger to programming-based puzzlers, from Zachtronics’ early SpaceChem to the charming Human Resource Machine. But outside of TIS-100, most are abstractions of the concept; While True: Learn() promises an interesting approach, focused on placing you in the chair of a machine learning specialist, when the game launches on mobile this year. Acting with intent as a puzzle game and an educational tool, While True: Learn() presents you with problems themed around managing data and code for various tasks, and then gives you a toolbox of components to solve these logistical puzzles. It seems simple in execution - no actual coding, just dragging and connecting deci…

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

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…

iOS drops today, September 13th! Hooray! If you're after how to download iOS 10, check out our guide here. "But what's actually included in the update?", I hear you ask. Well you've come to the right place, as we run down the top 10 new features in iOS 10. 10.

8 ways the iPhone 8 NEEDS to improve

The iPhone 7 has only just been revealed, but as we've already discussed, it's a total mess. So rather than dwell on a low point, let's stay in a positive mood (yay! Sunshine! Puppies! The imminent heat death of the universe!) and look ahead to what can be improved in the iPhone 8. Onwards! 1. Put a headphone port back in Come on, no-one wants to have to buy another adapter and go through the extra inconvenience of losing another piece of plastic (and never mind the cost, on top of the already more expensive iPhone this year). Have some sense, Apple, and put a headphone port back in. 2. Reduce the price of the AirPods £159 / $159. Let that sink in. One hundred and sixty big on…

Hookshot platformer Mikey Hooks now supports iOS controllers

If, like us, you are a fan of Mikey Hooks, then you will know that its fast-paced action already handled incredibly well using the touchscreen controls. However, that hasn't stopped developer BeaverTap from patching in additional support for iOS compatible controllers. There is now a fairly decent range of controllers available for iPhones, including the MOGA Ace Power, and the Logitech PowerShell. But, if you are looking for something to use across all of your iOS devices, the SteelSeries Stratus maybe your best bet. Connecting via Bluetooth, the controller is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPods - provided they're running iOS 7, of course. If you already have Mikey Hooks a…
