Hero Emblems II review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on June 23rd, 2022
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: MORE OLD HAT
The follow up to Hero Emblems adds some wrinkles to its solid puzzle combat but mostly just feels like more Hero Emblems.

Abandon Ship review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on June 22nd, 2022
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: FTL WITH FLOTSAM
This perfectly serviceable roguelike mostly suffers from having a lot of higher quality competition.

Barnard's Star review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on June 16th, 2022
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: SPACE WAR
This turn-based tactics game is clearly meant to be played in a very specific way.

Void-X review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on June 15th, 2022
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: STYLISH SHOOTER
This side-scrolling shooter proves that sometimes style can be the substance.

Diablo Immortal review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on June 10th, 2022
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: WOW IT’S DIABLO
Diablo Immortal is a fine social rpg with a pacing problem, and absolutely none of that has to do with its monetization.

Gunfire Reborn review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on May 31st, 2022
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: CO-OP CRITTERS
This roguelite fps has enough variety to be a serviceable solo experience, but it's best enjoyed with others.

Catalyst Black review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on May 27th, 2022
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: SOLID SHOOTER
This shooter offers a lot of variety and feels good to play, but doesn’t have much of a personality.

Apex Legends Mobile review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on May 26th, 2022
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: BEST ROYALE STANDING
This mobilized version of Respawn Entertainment's hit battle royale game feels manageable and easy to jump into without losing virtually any depth.

The 5 Best Mobile Puzzle RPGs

Posted by Campbell Bird on June 24th, 2022

RPGs with puzzle mechanics feel like the perfect fit for mobile. There’s something about a game that moves at a gentile pace while having a somewhat predictable-yet-challenging set of mechanics that can morph as you progress through some kind of grand adventure that feels right at home in your pocket.

With the recent release of Hero Emblems II, I thought it’d be good to revisit some of the absolute best puzzle RPGs that iOS has to offer, just in case you missed out on some of these incredible titles.

On June 3rd, Blizzard’s Diablo Immortal, a mobile title set in the Diablo universe, was released worldwide. To launch the game in China, Blizzard had shaken hands with NetEase, who also co-developed the game.

5 MMORPGs like Diablo Immortal on mobile

Posted by Nitisha Upadhye on June 20th, 2022

Massively multiplayer online role-playing games have been popular for ages. The battles, characters, heroes, and even foes make MMORPGs addictive. There are story-driven campaigns, powerful heroes, bad bosses, and lots of dungeons to crawl.

MMORPGs on phones haven’t been all that impressive. It is rather difficult to replicate the rich console and PC experience of MMORPGs on a small screen. Furthermore, the multitude of controls has to be toned down for handheld devices.

In any case, developers haven’t shied away from experimenting with MMORPGs and some have entered the mobile space. However, mobile gamers are yet to get a fully-fledged MMORPG experience.

Summer has finally arrived in different regions of the world, and the gaming community hasn't been left out of its grasp. Supercell has revealed that the upcoming July Gold Pass will include some enhanced premium summer-themed goodies, which might be featured in Clash of Clans.

Clash of Clans receives new updates every season, and this season is no exception. Along with some balancing changes, players get to grab new skins for their favourite heroes.

In May, Supercell had revealed that a summer-themed skin for Warden and a few other characters would be included in the June gold pass. With the latest update, players can finally get their hands on the latest in-game items. But that's not the end of it; the July pass will feature a Summer Queen skin that players can unlock next month.

The best mobile games like Diablo (but not Immortal)

Posted by Campbell Bird on June 17th, 2022

Diablo Immortal has now been out in the wild for some time now, and it’s basically more impressive as a game than I initially expected and more disappointing on the monetization front than anticipated. You can read a full review here, but the upshot is the game is a perfectly fine and highly polished way to do some Diablo-style grinding and the store—though shitty—can mostly be ignored.

If you don’t want to support or engage with free-to-play design and/or Activision Blizzard generally, first: I totally understand as there is no shortage of reasons for having these sentiments! And secondly: I have good news! There is a veritable bounty of games on the App Store that can deliver a very Diablo-like experience without a gross store or company attached to them. Check out our top picks below.

Diablo Immortal Beginner's Progression Guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on June 14th, 2022

Now that I've spent more than enough time in Diablo Immortal to find a purpose in it and also render an opinion on it, I wanted to share some thoughts on how others can join in on a similar journey and get to the fun stuff in the game a little faster.

When I started playing the game, I was flying completely blind and found myself getting bored mostly because I wasn't advancing as quickly as I wanted to and was unclear on how to even figure out what I was supposed to do or what I was even chasing. With that in mind, I've laid out a progression guide here that is focused on helping other hapless players find their way a little easier.

Hands on with the latest Gamevice controller and Gamevice Live

Posted by Campbell Bird on June 13th, 2022
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Turning your iOS device into a gaming powerhouse has never been easier. With the hardware running in today's phones and tablets, plus software that takes full advantage of it or otherwise can stream powerful games straight to your mobile screen, you can basically play anything you want anywhere you want with something you carry around with you in your pocket no matter where you're going.

The only problem with this has always been how you control these games that you have such easy access to. More complex and demanding games can struggle on touch screens, and--although they're something you can get used to--they can have a hard time replicating the satisfying feel of plopping down in front of a PC or console with a dedicated controller in hand. For years, Gamevice has been at the forefront of trying to solve this problem for folks who want to turn their iOS devices into dedicated gaming devices, and their latest controller (with companion app) is one of the best ways to do exactly that.
