Well now developer Witching Hour Studios has come back with a sequel of sorts, in the form of an asynchronous multiplayer version of the game called Ravenmark: Mercenaries. more »

    Frozen Synapse is a critically acclaimed indie turn-based strategy game that won the hearts and minds of gamers and critics alike. It's been making the rounds on Steam for a while, but now we get this brand new portable iPad version. Anyone who has played the game might scoff at the idea of such a complex strategy game working on an iPad, but the touch controls make the transition smooth as a baby's bottom. This is one of the most rewarding and inventive turn-based strategy games around, and you owe it to yourself to give it a look if you're into strategy in the slightest. more »

    Reviewer's Log: Earth Date 05082013. After being hyped up on a galactic scale for what seems like years, the long awaited Star Trek style simulator/role playing game Star Command is finally here. The game's warp drive must have been busted or something to take so long. I'm happy to say that it was worth the wait, and that Star Command is one of the best and most unique games of its kind. Think the indie hit FTL as done by Kairosoft, but with an actual storyline. It's that epic. more »

    After the lovely Bumpy Road and the funky Beat Sneak Bandit, Simogo has decided to change up the pace with a bit of unsettling, unnerving, absolutely creepy, isolated first person adventure puzzling based on a particularly horrifying piece of Swedish mythology. Year Walk is the name of said game, and it lives up to all of the hype created by the trailers. With a unique perspective, elegant design, and all the iconic, memorable, terrifying mythological imagery your retinas can handle, this is a must buy. more »

    The tower offense pioneers over at 11 Bit Studios finally released the sequel to their smash hit, Anomaly Warzone Earth. They branched out a bit, releasing the amusing Funky Smugglers and the dreamlike puzzler, Sleepwalker's Journey, but now they're back, and as this game will remind you a few times, Baghdad was just the beginning. The battle against a mysterious alien tower menace continues with new visuals, units, modes, and an awesome but sometimes hilarious Korean undertone. more »

    It's not often that two indie gaming rock-stars join forces, but when it happens everyone should really pay attention. Adam Saltsman, the creator of Canabalt of Semi Secret Software, and Greg Wohlwend, the "Greg" half of Mikengreg, creators of such titles as Solipskier and Gasketball, have combined their vast powers to bring us Hundreds, a wonderfully elegant puzzler based on an old Flash game. This isn't just a simple port though. The game has been reworked heavily from the ground up, adding more complex and varied mechanics and an extra coat or three of polish. more »

    Gasketball is the latest iPad title from popular indie developers, Mikengreg. The studio, consisting of two people named Mike and Greg, made a splash with their creative auto-scrolling title, Solipskier. While Gasketball fills a totally different niche of gaming, I'd say it's an excellent follow up full of the same personal charm. It’s a polished gem of a game worth checking out if you own an iPad. more »

    Over one year ago, a developer named Andreas Illiger released his simple game, and to his and everyone's surprise, it became a smash, chart-topping mega hit. That game was Tiny Wings, and now that game gets its first major update bringing with it new modes and features. Along with that update comes the brand new Tiny Wings HD, which comes with all of the new features of the update, as well as some extra iPad specific stuff. It's not technically a sequel, but it's just as good as one! more »
