Blyss, the second game by Dropout Games, released quite recently on the Apple App Store. It instantly landed itself a handful of excellent reviews and ratings from AppAdvice (4.5/5) and Pocket Gamer (8/10). MacStories went ahead and called Blyss, “One of the best puzzle games I’ve ever played” and TouchArcade states that, “Blyss appears to achieve that sweet spot of being complex and in depth, while still having a zen-like vibe.” While Blyss was achieving all this praise in its first month, we got in touch with Ankush Madad, Co-Founder of Dropout Games, and asked him about how he feels about their game, and the fact that they got featured as the Apple App Store’s “iOS Editor’s Choice.” Gaming Central: Congratulations on the release of y...

The Mindfuck That Fell Short – Asemblance Review

Think The Butterfly Effect. Then mix it with a little bit of PT and add a dab of The Stanley Parable, and you’ve gotten yourself the mind boggling psychological horror that is Asemblance. According to Nilo Studio’s official website, their first game is “the pilot episode of a mind-bending franchise inspired by The Twilight Zone, The X-Files and the Black Mirror Television series.” As exciting as it may sound, the game feels forgettable at the best. Mind you, there are plenty of great things about the game, but the execution feels a little sloppy, making the entire experience unfulfilling. Now you can’t talk much about the game without spoiling some of it, so we’ll try not to mention the story too much. Your aim is to enter numerous memories using a simulation, in order to...

Not As Simple As It Seems – Simple Spy PC Review

Simple Spy is a precision platformer by an Indian studio called Kodari Games. It is available on the PC (Steam), iOS and Android platforms. Developed by a two member team, this game is easy to get into, hard to master and sometimes straight up frustrating. Don’t get us wrong, that’s what we like about the game. The game combines excellent music, simple menu designs with minimalist aesthetics and hardcore gameplay. There are over 60 levels to master, each more difficult that the previous one, and you can choose from different characters. But there’s a lot more to it than meets the eye. Once you actually get into the game, you realize that it is harder than it seems to be. As you jump, roll and climb walls making your way around the obstacles, the precision element of the g...

Upcoming iOS Game ‘Flewn’ Looks Fantastic

Flewn is a surreal storytelling experience of a world turned upside down. It follows the journey of an old whale on stilts walking through the desert in search of a lost ocean. Along the way, Whale meets new friends who pull together to help him and the rescued sea creatures he carries on his back. Their efforts are put to the test when they must overcome an ominous mountain pass to reach a new home. Inspired by the art of Salvador Dali, the story of Flewn reads like an inverse Noah’s Ark. Each scene is a unique, hand-crafted combination of narrative, illustration, animation and music.

And it just so happens that this week Ubisoft has made this mobile gaming app free for iOS.

You’ll be doing other stuff like upgrading your ship, recruiting new crew members, and fighting enemy ships. In other related news, Ubisoft has also released their fourth content update for the game. Ubisoft has periodically released these free updates since the game’s launch. This particular add on opens new areas–La Isla de la Juventud, in which you must take down a fortress ...

Cut the Rope 2 for iOS out now

The wait is finally over now as ZeptoLab has released the follow-up to its popular physics-based puzzler Cut the Rope on the App Store yesterday. The main aim of Cut the Rope 2 remains the same, as in players are still tasked with collecting candy for Om Nom, but the addition this time around is that Om Nom is joined by a bunch of that supporting characters called Toss, Boo and Blue. The puzzle designs in the original Cut the Rope were sublime, introducing new mechanics and trickier challenges at a suitable pace. If Cut the Rope 2  turns out to be even half as good, then this would be a perfect game for you to download on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch over the holidays.   The game costs $0.99 and will be out early next year on Google Play store as a free-to-play game for Android use...
