Dislyte review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on May 16th, 2022
Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: CLASH OF CLUBBERS
This free-to-play has some inspired aesthetics but otherwise feels like a full embrace of pay-to-win design.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on April 22nd, 2022
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: TAMPED DOWN TANKS
This battle royale’s genre-bending ideas are sound but they need some more room to breathe.

Phobies review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on March 8th, 2022
Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: MONSTROUS MONETIZATION
This multiplayer game has a solid sense of self but is woefully monetized to intentionally keep matches unbalanced.

Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: CHEEKY CHESS
This auto-battler is a goofy, casual, and fun time so long as you don’t take it too seriously.

PAKO 3 review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on December 7th, 2021
Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: DRIVING GAME 3
PAKO 3 ditches almost everything about the previous entries that gave it some edge and personality. Now it just feels like it could be called Drivey Cars Game.

Bloodshore review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on November 3rd, 2021
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: DEAD ON ARRIVAL
Bloodshore is a somewhat middling FMV experience that buries its most fascinating bits along its margins.

The 5 Best Mobile MOBAs

Posted by Campbell Bird on October 8th, 2021

MOBAs are a game genre that have almost everything working against them. at least on paper. They’re highly competitive and demanding multiplayer games where every player’s performance and abilities matter in determining the outcome of a match. Match lengths are pretty long, too, and if anyone rage-quits, the momentum of a match swings hard in favor of the team with more players.

All of these problems are exacerbated on mobile, where people are used to short play sessions in games they can drop in and out of. This is probably the reason why the turnover of games in this genre is so high on smaller screens. With the release of League of Legends: Wild Rift, we took a look on the App Store to find the best MOBAs that still have active communities. Check out our picks below.

Genshin Impact Guide - Gacha Strategy: When to Spend and When to Save (Part 2)

Posted by Campbell Bird on March 3rd, 2021
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: GIGA GACHA :: Read Review »

This is part 2 of our Genshin Impact gacha strategy guides. See part 1 hereYou can check out more guides for Genshin Impact here.

It's no secret that Genshin Impact's gacha system is designed to make you want to spend money. You absolutely don't need to do this, though. Since launch, I've been enjoying the game without spending a dime (I should also say I'm not part of any of miHoYo's content creator programs that deal out free currency to content creators).

I've managed to do this all while building out a roster with all the characters I want. How, you might ask? Well, the short answer is math, a pessimistic attitude, and discerning taste. You can also read on below to understand exactly what I mean by this.

Genshin Impact - Progression Guide (Adventure Ranks 45-50)

Posted by Campbell Bird on January 25th, 2021

Chances are, if you've made it to Adventure Rank 45 in Genshin Impact, you don't necessarily need a guide on what to do. It's clear you've got a good enough adventurer team, know the general grind, and have mopped up just about every story quest you can get your hands on.

If this doesn't sound like you, maybe you should back up and read our previous progression guides before hopping into this one. For this entry in our Genshin Impact Adventurer's Guide, we'll be outlining some of the finer points of the game that we wish we knew about earlier so as to ease resource management concerns that come up in this endgame state. Read on below to learn more.
