Dungeons & Miners review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on September 9th, 2021
Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: SHALLOW GRAVE
Dungeons & Miners is a conceptually great action roguelite that unfortunately is a little too thin and issue-laden to enjoy properly.

The 5 Best Mobile Stealth Action Games

Posted by Campbell Bird on July 30th, 2021

Action games are a hard sell on mobile, and they get even harder if the more precision they require. Stealth games are one such subgenre that just doesn’t feel like it could work well on small touchscreens where you’re prone to being distracted or mistapping by accident.

And yet, that hasn’t stopped plenty of developers of rising to the challenge to make some great stealth action games to enjoy on iOS. Here are our five favorites below, along with links to reviews so you can learn more about them.

Huntdown review

By Campbell Bird on June 16th, 2021
Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: BACK TO THE FUTURE
Huntdown looks just like a forgotten action arcade game from the 80s or 90s, and it mostly plays better.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on November 5th, 2020
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: SO FAR SO GOOD
The first chapter of Space Marshals 3 is more of the same great stealth/action that made the first two games worth playing.

PSA: Download Bastion for free, but wait to play it

Posted by Campbell Bird on November 6th, 2019

There hasn’t been much news from Supergiant Games on mobile lately regarding new games, but there’s something going on with their first game. Bastion released on the App Store in 2012, and back then it was published by Warner Bros. This Warner published version of the game has been delisted, but Supergiant has gone ahead and re-released the game, for free... kind of.

This new version of Bastion may be free to download, but has an in-app purchase for unlocking the full game. From now until 2020 though, this purchase is being offered at no cost, so make sure you grab the game before then.

A couple other things to note about this new version. First, it is optimized for newer screens, meaning it can fill your iPhone X or iPad Pro screen. On the not-so-great end of things, you aren’t able to take your save game from the original mobile release of Bastion over to this new one, and this new version has some performance issues. Playing it on my iPad Pro, there was noticeable stutter and dropped frames that hopefully get fixed with an update soon.

Luckily, Bastion is really, really good, especially when you can play it for free. So grab this new version, but then maybe wait for a patch or two before playing it again.
