Phobies review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: MONSTROUS MONETIZATION
This multiplayer game has a solid sense of self but is woefully monetized to intentionally keep matches unbalanced.

RPG Overrogue review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on January 20th, 2022
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: DEVILISHLY DERIVATIVE
Overrogue finds a way to blatantly rip-off a lot of good ideas and still somehow feel fresh and fun.

The digital adaptation of Dominion is a promising port of a modern classic

Posted by Campbell Bird on July 19th, 2021

iOS has always been a great place to play card and board games digitally, provided the game selection available was to your taste. I've made bunch of great discoveries over the years by trying out titles like Root and Lords of Waterdeep, but what I always secretly wanted all this time was a way to play Dominion on the go.

Thankfully, it seems like I'll be getting exactly what I've been waiting for soon, as Temple Gates Games is currently finishing up a digital version of Dominion for mobile and PC. In a certain way, I already have it, as this version of the game is already in open beta and you can play it right now. If you have any interest at all in Dominion or deck-building games, you should sign up right away.

Steam Link Spotlight - Roguebook

Posted by Campbell Bird on June 23rd, 2021
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Steam Link Spotlight is a feature where we look at PC games that play exceptionally well using the Steam Link app. Our last entry looked at Genesis Noir. Read about how it plays using Steam Link over here.

It's becoming a trend now: PC card games by and large work well on touch interfaces. That is part of the reason why this entry focuses on Roguebook. Other big reasons we're taking a look at it include the fact that Richard Garfield--creator of Magic: The Gathering and (more recently) Keyforge--worked on the design of the card game while the game itself was developed by Abrakam, the team behind what is still my absolute favorite digital collectible card game, Faeria. Side note: Faeria is also great on Steam Link.

Steam Link Spotlight - Neurodeck

Posted by Campbell Bird on March 22nd, 2021
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Steam Link Spotlight is a feature where we look at PC games that play exceptionally well using the Steam Link app. Our last entry looked at Loop Hero. Read about how it plays using Steam Link over here.

This entry for the series goes back to a familiar territory: roguelike deck-building. Neurodeck takes many of the genre conventions galvanized by titles like Dream Quest and Slay the Spire, but places them into a more self-reflective structure where you have psychological battles with phobias and fill out personality tests to earn new traits to help you in battle.

Thronebreaker review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on July 14th, 2020
Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: ARBITRARY AMBITION
Even if you think Gwent is more than an over-engineered mini-game, the mobile version of Thronebreaker leaves some things to be desired.

Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: COMPROMISED CRAWLER
Such a fantastic game deserves a better mobile port than this.

Steam Link Spotlight - Signs of the Sojourner

Posted by Campbell Bird on May 29th, 2020
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Steam Link Spotlight is a feature where we look at PC games that play exceptionally well using the Steam Link app. Our last entry was XCOM: Chimera Squad. Read about how it plays using Steam Link's new mouse and keyboard support over here.

For this entry, I took a look at a fascinating game about communication. Signs of the Sojourner by Echodog Games examines how traveling and connecting with other people can change you in the process. While this has been explored in plenty of other games and media before, what's remarkable about Signs of the Sojourner is how it translates this message so elegantly through simple card game mechanics.

Dungeon Tales: RPG Card Game review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on August 20th, 2019
Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: CARD GAME COPY
Dungeon Tales: RPG Card Game is yet another Slay the Spire clone on mobile that doesn’t quite stand out.
