Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: GRIPPING DYSTOPIA
Being a border control worker for a corrupt country in a dystopian past really shouldn't be as gripping as it is.

A Dark Room - Tips, Tricks, and Strategies to Push Back the Darkness

Posted by Joseph Bertolini on June 17th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: NOT MUCH TO LOOK AT :: Read Review »

A Dark Room certainly ranks as one of the more unique games that I have ever played. Part of the magic of this game is that, because of the lack of any discernible tutorial, there is a very realistic sense that the character does not know what to do and is trying their best to keep their growing community going. Because of all that there really is a need for some guidance for those playing through the first time, or even those just looking for a more efficient route when booting the game up for the second or third time. That's what I'll attempt to do here, starting of course with waking up in a dark room.

[Note: We've tried to avoid spoilers as best we can, but even the emergent gameplay in A Dark Room could be considered spoiler territory to some. If you haven't played the game before and would rather feel your way through the first time, we advise that you hold off on reading this guide until your second attempt.]

Lonely Ship Review

Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: DARK SPACE
Despite the lack of light this endless flyer most definitely does *not* stumble around in the dark.

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
By Rob Rich on May 6th, 2013
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: A LITTLE DIM
Emily in Darkness looks like a dark and disturbing adventure, but some bad translation ruins a lot of the mystique.

Lumigon Review

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
By Rob Rich on November 26th, 2012
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
Lumigon is a cute and relatively simple (in a nice, accessible way) runner that's only slightly held back by a bit too much sensitivity.

LAD Review

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
By Dale Culp on September 14th, 2012
Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: CLUNKY PHYSICS
LAD's dark and moody atmosphere creates plenty of tension, but problematic physics quickly ruin the experience.

Dark Legends Teaser Trailer Released

Posted by Jason Wadsworth on February 16th, 2012

It's a little bit dark, it's a little bit sexy, it's the first teaser trailer for the upcoming MMORPG, Dark Legends. This MMMORPG (mobile massively multiplayer online role playing game - you heard it here first, folks --Ed.) centers on secret factions of vampires, werewolves, demons, and the humans trying to exterminate these undead threats. The player plays a recently awakened vampire under the direction of the vampire that turned them in a fight for survival against the human mobs that have recently been alerted to the existence of the undead.

The trailer doesn't reveal much in the way of gameplay, but it does set a certain tone for the upcoming game. Dark Legends is being developed by Spacetime Studios, who also developed the critically acclaimed MMOs Star Legends and Pocket Legends. Dark Legends is set for release sometime in the first quarter of this year for iOS, Android, and Chrome. Take a look at the teaser trailer below to get an idea of what's in store.

Mystique: Chapter1: Foetus

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
By Christine Morris on July 3rd, 2009
Our rating: starstarhalfstarblankstarblankstar :: NOT YET
Mystique held little mystery for me in it's first incarnation. Needs smoother graphics and more gameplay. Not for me but you might like it if you enjoy 'locked in a room' style puzzles.

Hysteria Project

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
By Chris Hall on April 20th, 2009
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: CAUTIOUSLY RECOMMENDED
The Hysteria Project is a cinematic horror game that is surprisingly creepy. From the opening moments to the ending scene, there is a sense of urgency that is unparalleled on the iPhone. It's a shame that this game only lasts for about 1-1/2 hours because
