Top 5 mobile games like Minecraft for iPhone and iPad

Posted by Emily Sowden on September 28th, 2018

Remember when Minecraft was all the rage? Back before battle royale became the coolest thing to play it was all about the sandbox survival game… though it's apparently still rated one of the most watched video games on YouTube.

Minecraft is one of those games you think you're going to hate, but once you start playing it's rather hard to stop. Whether you're going about in survival mode or just having a bit of fun in creative mode, there's something for mostly everyone.

When it comes to getting the Minecraft experience on mobile there are a few games you can dig into. One won't be surprising at all, of course, but the others should give you food for thought.

Why love matters in adventure games

Posted by Emily Sowden on August 21st, 2018

Alright, get your 'weeee-woooo' girly jokes out of the way early, folks, 'cos I'm about to crack open the lid on love in adventure games so hard the jar will shatter. Too much? Sorry, it's been a while.

Truthfully, I'd never really thought much on it when I was a nipper. Adventure games were, and are, my jam, but it's only been the past decade or so years that I've started paying attention to the plotlines more enthusiastically. It's not all about jumping from one deadly platform to the next – it's about WHY we're taking the leap.

After all, love comes in many shapes and sizes and affects people in a bunch of different ways. Plus, whether you want to admit it or not, love makes things a lot more interesting (yes, even the clichés).
