God of Light is an app that expands on an already well-traversed universe of physics-based puzzle games. By effectively merging and infusing a distinct visual style and a standout score from hip hop act UNKLE, God of Light turns this brain twister into a sublime, if not occasionally evocative, experience.
iOS Game Reviews
Space. The final frontier. In Mi-Clos Studio's Out There space is really the final frontier because it's a place you're probably going to die in. A lot. And while death by oxygen deprivation, being burned to death in a supernova, or being crushed in a black hole aren't exactly ideal ends, it's the journey that makes these perilous outcomes worthwhile.
A year and a half ago Toy Studio released The Curse, a unique puzzle game featuring a masked stranger who guided you through over 100 puzzles in your quest to solve a mystery. Toy Studio returns with The Voyage, a pirate themed puzzle adventure. Is this follow up a bountiful mobile treasure or is it just straight up booty?
Coldfire Keep is a dungeon crawler which features several adventurers searching for riches within a portal that holds a plethora of creatures and evildoers. The app costs $4.99 to download, and although it suffers a few hiccups along the way, the game still manages to stick a solid landing.
Ava’s Quest is a slick looking new game that recently jumped out on the scene, and the earthy colors can definitely lure you in. When you’ve dealt with a couple hours worth of gameplay you begin questioning whether or not Ava’s Quest was a decent buy. It’s not due to the lack of things to do as the heroine, but a lot of the levels blend in together which makes it rather dull after a certain amount of time.
Building on its 2009 title, The Tribez, Game Insight takes the munchin' peons from its original title and moves them up from fending for themselves in the wilderness to the stronghold setting of The Tribez & Castlez. Of course, taking such underdeveloped folk and moving them into a new plateau of technology doesn't come without a few follies. As we see in The Tribez & Castlez, there is a huge price to be paid for settling a vast world.
Solitude. Most believe a state of solitude to be a state of peace. In actuality it is a state of being alone, and it is up to the individual to find peace in that. In Nyamyam's Tengami, players must try to find their own sort of peace with this puzzler that's occasionally clever and often solitary.
Word Puttz is a word-building app which takes its game to the golf course. By taking a well worn genre off of the game board and onto the green, this title offers up a different way of looking at our randomized letters. Although it's not exactly a hole in one, Word Putzz stays the course.
R-Type II is a side scrolling arcade game that made its debut back in 1989. Now it's part of the iOS world, and for gamers who need a bit of sensory overload, this explosive shooter hits the target.
I was confused when I first saw the title for World of Gibbets. I kept thinking to myself, “What the hell is a gibbet?” It sounds like a cute animal. Maybe it was a relative of those little gibbon monkeys you sometimes see at the zoo. Boy, was I wrong. A gibbet refers to an instrument of public execution and gibbetting was the act of stringing up bodies for public display in order to keep the community in line. What a lovely topic for a little iOS game.
