Tangram Attack: More about stylus skills than tangrams

For those who need a little reminding, tangrams originated from China, and are essentially pictures that are formed from basic shapes like triangles, and squares.

I didn’t expect to fall in love in Road Not Taken

I’m a big fan of romance options in games. While I prefer otome, I’m happy to see the little extra option to interact with the in-game characters in unexpected ways. Which is why I was both surprised and delighted to see my Ranger could fall in love in Road Not Taken. I did not see more »

2048 Infinite – The Circle of Fifths is better than Threes

Threes was a great iOS and Android game, and it is disappointing that people immediately copycatted its success with the various free-to-play 2048 games, but something good has come of it.
