Barrels of Fun

Looks can be deceiving, and Puzzle Monkeys by Log Games is a prime example of this phenomenon. What appears at first sight to be an early 2000's flash game is actually a pretty darn fun puzzle game. By drawing inspiration from a handful of old-time puzzlers, as well as incorporating new ideas, Puzzle Monkeys is one book that …

Quest II: The Adventure of Elliot

The HTML5 support for Wii U is far from an underused feature available to developers, but few games as good as Elliot Quest seem to rise from the Nintendo Web Framework. Ansimuz Games' title, which was ported to the eShop by PlayEveryWare, is a charming old-school sidescroller which looks back to the days of the NES for …

Brings Life Back to a Decaying Idea

Let's face it, zombies have been overused beyond any tolerable point throughout the past ten years. This fad, which began with good intentions, began becoming a cop-out for lazy developers and simply decayed over time.

When was the last time you saw someone casually carrying around an electric guitar? While a budding musician would benefit from practicing their craft on the go, it simply isn't worth the hassle of lugging around a guitar, even without an amp.

Needs to Fly South For the Winter

Flappy Bird inspired games, clones, and anything else related to the original game have all had the same issues as the original. Beyond the simplicity of the core concept on hand, each title has failed to bring any real personality or new features to the gameplay, which results in a quickly stale concept. Most …
