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.

Dungeon of the Endless: Apogee review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on March 16th, 2021
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: ENDLESS STRUGGLE
Dungeon of the Endless is so good that it’s somewhat worth fighting through bugs and control issues to play this otherwise complete version of it.

PSA: Dungeon of the Endless Still Rules

Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: ENDLESS STRUGGLE :: Read Review »

The announcement that Dungeon of the Endless is making a return to the App Store via Playdigious as Dungeon of the Endless: Apogee is probably the most exciting mobile news to come out this month. Why? Because Dungeon of the Endless rules, it's perfect for mobile, and it's a shame that it ever got removed from the App Store to begin with.

Seven Scrolls review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on March 11th, 2020
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: CONDITIONAL CRAWLER
Seven Scrolls draws perhaps a bit too much inspiration from its source material, yet somehow still manages to feel distinct, fresh, and fun.

The Alliance update to Out There: Omega Edition makes it as playable as ever

Posted by Campbell Bird on January 24th, 2020
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: A LITTLE LOST (IN SPACE) :: Read Review »

Out There is an old go-to recommendation for a lot of mobile stalwarts, but I could never really get into it. This sci-fi survival game that blended elements of interactive fiction and roguelike mechanics just felt a little off-balance and a little too random for my liking. After being out for six years though, Out There has gone through some changes. The latest of which is a content update entitled “The Alliance” that looked just interesting enough for me to try and pick up the game all over again.

This swipe-based roguelike is remarkably complex yet easy to play.

By Campbell Bird on January 8th, 2020
Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: SMALL SPACE
End of the Universe is a somewhat disappointing follow up to Immortal Rogue.

By Campbell Bird on October 21st, 2019
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: INDECISIVE VICTORY
You are never full in control of things in Bad North, and that’s part of what makes it such a tense strategy game.

Steam Link Spotlight - Dicey Dungeons

Posted by Campbell Bird on August 14th, 2019
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Steam Link Spotlight is a new feature where we take a look at PC games that play exceptionally well with the Steam Link app. In case you missed it, our last entry focused on Faeria, a collectible card game that used to be available on the App Store, but now is PC only. Read more about why it's still a great mobile experience over here.

This week, I want to talk about a new game. A brand new game, in fact. Just yesterday, Terry Cavanagh—the mind behind Super Hexagon and VVVVVV—released Dicey Dungeons, an awesome roguelike, deck-building game that focuses on dice-based combat.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on May 31st, 2018
Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: AIRY AND LITE
Sir Questionnaire’s lightweight roguelike action would be more enjoyable if not for a few bugs.
