'Pumped BMX 2' Review - I Want To Ride This Bicycle

Side-scrolling games where you ride through a course performing tricks and stunts seem to be all the rage these days, mostly thanks to the sudden popularity the Trials series found several years ago. That rise coincided nicely with the fall of 3D open world trick games like the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series, ensuring that

'Spirits of Spring' Review - A Powerful, Cathartic Experience

Let me begin this review by lighting the "Experience Game" signal, just so that we're starting off with clarity. I've talked before about the distinction between games focused on mechanics and what I usually refer to as experience games, particularly in my review of Monument Valley [$3.99]. As you would probably expect from Minority Media,

'Galaxy Trucker' for iPad Review - Space Race Board Game Arrives on the App Store

Czech Games Edition's Galaxy Trucker [$4.99 (HD)] is out on iOS. This board game port has a lot more features than most, and has a solid sense of humor to help you endure the frozen wastes of the void. When I say a lot more features, I mean it. This board game doesn't just have

Check Out the Trailer for 'Epic of Kings', a Gorgeous Action Adventure Game from 'Shadow Blade' Developer DeadMage

You guys remember Shadow Blade, right? It was a killer ninja-themed action platformer released early this year by developer Dead Mage Studio and published by Crescent Moon Games.

'Cosmophony' Review: The Problem with Perfectionism

Cosmophony [$1.99] is a rhythm-based tunnel shooter that is built to be challenging, with formations of obstacles to avoid throughout five levels, all set to an EDM soundtrack.

Check Out 'The Hunted', a Dual Stick Multiplayer Shooter

I've always enjoyed games that do interesting things with your field of view. People gave Doom III a lot of crap, but only being able to see what your flashlight showed you added a weird layer of suspense to the game. Well, in a vaguely similar vein, F5 Games' upcoming dual stick shooter The Hunted
