Devious Dungeon is a platform title that has a medieval fighter traveling through different portals to find treasure and slay monsters. We've seen this story a million times before, but when a sword and sorcery adventure pulls off the right amount of magic, familiarity can also breed excellence.

Completing Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy is a bittersweet experience. On one hand, it’s a pleasure to come back to the Layton gameplay that we all know and love. On the other hand, it’s the last time we will be doing so. This is, essentially, the end to the Layton series; a swan song for everyone’s favorite top-hatted sleuth. The game is perfectly crafted to push you closer to the end, and with it the answer to a mystery that has been built up over the last three titles. You’ll happily gobble up puzzle after puzzle, but as you fill out Layton’s suitcase and slowly uncover all the answers the game has to offer, you can’t help but be filled with an emptiness as you realize, this is really it.
Once you march your way through the first couple levels, Stubies reels you in with its sleek graphics, almost hypnotic little jingle and increasing amount of difficulty, continually testing the player.
Simplicity in video games is an easy concept in design but a tough one to execute. Most titles that have stood the test of time were simple in design, yet complex in their mastery. Every game developer has tried to create the next big hit using this formula. While most have failed, there are some who managed to create something that resonates and sticks with both kids and adults. Threes is one of those games.
Much like the wars for the throne in 'Game of Thrones', The Banner Saga: Chapter 1 requires you to make the hard decisions and reiterates that wartime can be rough and relentless while making you strategically play an intricate, elaborate chess match.
In the past decade or so, Traveller's Tales has developed quite a resume of impressively fun, yet accessible, Lego video games. We've got Lego Batman, Lego Star Wars, Lego Harry Potter... pretty much any franchise big enough to get licensed by Lego becomes a video game from this creative team. With the Lego Movie dropping a brickload on theaters, Traveller's Tales has seen fit to snap together a tie-in to go along with it.
In a world filled with grey-brown military shooters filled with grizzled space marines that are trying to one-up each other in a stubble and jawline competition, Loadout is here to say, “Screw all that!”
Director John Woo's trademark is his kinetic visual action style, as he usually litters his world with two-gun toting heroes and a plethora of doves. You'll get those touches with this blood soaked endless runner, and if you're a fan of Woo's cinematic ouevre this mobile release won't disappoint.
In Fear I Trust places gamers in a facility where experimentation comes at the expense of the test subjects. Touted as a psychological thriller, this puzzler is also an absorbing journey to the unknown, a mystery that you may be too scary to solve.
The aptly-titled Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition brings back the solid gameplay of the 2013 reboot, and offers up the best-looking Lara Croft adventure we've ever enjoyed.
