Baba Is You released on iOS this week, and you should probably play it. If you're unfamiliar with the 2019 puzzle game, it's ostensibly about pushing things around as a little sheep. The only catch is that some of the objects you can push around in levels just so happen to also be the words that dictate the game rules, allowing you to change their meaning at will.
It’s been this way for a while now, but playing Hot Wheels Infinite Loop really highlights a big issue with free-to-play mobile racing games: They suck. It doesn’t matter if you’re trying going for realism, cart racing, or arcade nonsense, they’re all bad, and mostly in the same way.
Such a big expansion doesn’t come cheap though. Adding Rise and Fall to Civilization VI will cost you $30. Given such a hefty price tag, we dove deep to look at what this expansion offers to see if this add-on justifies the cost.
There's something quite lovely about having an oasis of calm in my pocket at all times. I've tried so many apps in the past to alleviate the symptoms of anxiety, a disorder which I've struggled with for over a decade.
I stumbled on My Oasis by accident as I was browsing for games to play. It promised a calming experience, so I thought “why not”. Just a heads-up, it's better to play - a word I'm using loosely here - with headphones, as the music and sounds are soothing.
These add to the stark floating island that makes up the heart of the game. It can be rotated and moved, letting you watch as flora and fauna bloom all around. In the middle of the island is the source of all life, a pool of water. Surrounding that, a few trees and patches of grass.
Paladins Strike is an interesting hybrid between a hero shooter and MOBA. If you go into the game not knowing this, it could be hard to know exactly how you should be playing it. With these tips though, you’ll have a solid handle on the game in no time.
More shooter than MOBA
Although Paladins Strike may appear to be more of a MOBA than a shooter, the opposite is actually true. The only real MOBA bits in this game are the camera angle, your ability to upgrade your hero as you level up, and the presence of tall grass, which you can use to hide in to ambush enemies.
That said, Paladins Strike still isn’t a full-on shooter. You have limited shots of your primary weapon that recharge over time, so you need to be careful about how often to use your regular attacks. So, though it may be tempting to try and run your gun your way through the game, you should focus more on your hero powers and teamwork to win matches.
