Review: Galaxy of Pen & Paper for Mac and iOS

September 10, 2017 | 0 Comments

Galaxy of Pen and Paper doesn’t give you a whole galaxy to explore—and it doesn’t really need a pen or paper—but it’s not all bad. You get to battle aliens and robot horses, team up with interstellar law enforcement, fly around in a spaceship, and be the heroes who save the day....

August 30, 2017 | 0 Comments

Bounty Train is more of a resource management game than a train sim. If you are OK with a slower paced game, this one isn’t too bad. Now's a good time to see for yourself, too, as it's currently on sale at Steam for $12.49....

Moshi, of course, knows a thing or two about stylish protection.

A prime example of this is the latest in their Armour series, updated for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus....

What you get with the Moshi Overture for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is a case that allows you to do away with your wallet (provided you're willing to downsize its contents), keep your iPhone protected, and be ready to go for both an elevator sales pitch and a prolonged round of SIEGE: Titan...

Alwa's Awakening

Review: Alwa’s Awakening for Mac

June 27, 2017 | 0 Comments

Zoe, the heroine of Alwa's Awakening, falls asleep playing her favorite video game and awakens to find herself inside the land of Alwa, which she must now save from an evil power. Luckily for her, this game is a throwback to the 8-bit games of NES, meaning she only has to work in two dimensions....

I love JRPGs, but they're always so heavy, you know? So melodramatic. That's part of their appeal, I suppose, and yet there are times when I'm in the mood for something a bit more upbeat. Something like Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs....
