    It's been a while since I sat down with a good old fashioned point and click adventure. And I definitely mean old fashioned, as our game today, Gemini Rue, evokes the style of many classics in the genre, with elements from old Lucas Arts games. Gemini Rue, however, is a very modern game, and though the environments are lovingly crafted pixel by pixel, modern touch control features, anytime saving, and full voice acting show the game's youth. All in all, it's a joy to play. more »

    We've all dipped a toe in Farmville style social simulations at this point. And most of us have rightfully felt massive quantities of shame. The genre is completely overdone, yet we keep playing them because our feeble human brains can't seem to escape all those skinner box design tactics. Well never fear. Double Fine has swooped in all heroically with a new game called Middle Manager of Justice. Now you can scratch that waste of time social sim itch and play a game with some real creativity, humor, and charm. more »

    Okay… What the heck did I just play? I…I don’t really know. But I think I liked it! Luxuria Superbia is the stimulating new game from Tale of Tales, most well known for games like The Path on PC, or The Graveyard, which saw a mobile release. It’s a very unique game that kind of defies conventional genres and is hard to classify, so I won’t bother trying. What it is, is a very beautiful, abstract touch game with gorgeous, colorful visuals and what can only be described as sensuous mechanics. It’s…something, alright. more »

    Meltdown is a new arcade shooter from Phenomenon Games and Bulkypix, free to play with a thirty mission campaign, randomly generated levels, and online cooperative play for up to four players. It's very stylish, with a cell shaded look to the visuals, plus a seriously awesome electronic soundtrack. The game is loaded with upgrades to buy and skill points to spend as you level up and rack up lots of cash. more »

Tasty Poison always delivers on quality and polish, even if the games are a bit smaller or repetitive. That's the case with their latest release, Neon Shadow, a tribute and love letter to classic first person shooters. Looking for even more role playing games? Try these. more »

    In an age where most console games take themselves far too seriously in an attempt to prove that games can be mature, adult, artful entertainment, while still letting you blast aliens and stab people, sometimes you just want to revel in absurdity and good natured fun, and maybe, just maybe, punch hyper evolved bears in the face with a massive flaming fist. Fist of Awesome from I Fight Bears is retro in both art style and sensibilities, and is one of the most purely fun mobile titles I’ve played in a while. more »

    Pivvot is a new game from Fixpoint Productions, and it's here to tickle that super addicting, super challenging game itch that we all get from time to time. In the same vein as Super Hexagon, it's a really simple, abstract, and minimalist arcade game about avoidance that exudes elegance. It's not quite on Super Hexagon's level, but it's still great, and well worth a purchase. more »

    I don't know about the rest of you, but I have been thoroughly enjoying this resurgence of the Roguelike genre in the last couple years, thanks to games like The Binding of Isaac on PC, and numerous rougelikes on iOS. The latest one being Heroes of Loot from OrangePixel, a developer that usually makes platformers, but always makes retro goodness. It's an extremely basic, almost stupefyingly simple game that is nonetheless addicting as possible. more »
