Quick Hits: Gumballs & Dungeons

I have a confession to make. I lied to you all. Apparently I underestimated the number of, and time spent, playing mobile games I do. For that I appologize – mostly to my wife and kids…

I still don’t spend much money on them, but looking back on all my reviews, I realized a LOT of them are for mobile games. So I guess I’m more into  mobile games than I thought. Oh well!

This one I got clued into by Justin Davis over at IGN and it turned out to be a pretty solid recommendation. (more…)

Quick Hits: Super Mario Run

I know a lot of people kind of balked at the $10 price tag on Super Mario Run, which is fair because that is on the high end of the mobile game price spectrum. I was hesitent to buy it at that price as well – I mean if could scrape together another $10, I could grab a full sized console game, say…Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. I was curious though, and bored on a conference call, and wandered over to the app store to see if it happened to be on sale. What I found there was even better – you can download it – and try out the first three levels – for free!

Quick Hits: Ready…Set…GO

After reading all of the good reviews of Lara Croft GO, Hitman GO, and Deus Ex GO, I couldn’t wait to get my new phone. The old one had been in the tub, screen replaced, then screen cracked, so it was a hot mess. Now that I have my iPhone 7 (pretty nice phone by the way) I have been able to jump into the GO games. And, so far, I’m really enjoying them all. Instead of reviewing them separately, I figured I’d bunch them together and give my take on each – sort of a compare and contrast with a little bit of ranking. (more…)

Quick Hits: 80 Days

Sometimes Twitter is a curse. Some days, it’s so full of worthless drivel that I surprise myself by coming back the next day. Other days, it’s so full of wonderful things that I don’t have time to get through all of it.In fact, those days are the hardest because I know – I KNOW – I missed something super cool. But other days, I catch those cool things and today was one of those days. As I’m scrolling down the list, my eye catches a comment/link posted by a trusted gaming source. It says: “I love this game” and “$1.99.” I click the link and I’m off… (more…)

Quick Hits: Outfolded

I don’t play a lot of mobile games and, when I do, I don’t usually spend a ton of time on them. But every once in awhile one gets its hooks into me and I have a hard time putting it down. I have yet to actually pay for one and I make a point NOT to make in-app purchases – mostly based on principle, but that’s a whole other rant. Since I don’t spend a lot of time playing mobile games, and certainly don’t play all the way through most of them, I didn’t want to dedicate entire reviews to them. But I do still want to shine a little light on the ones that I think are good. Thus Quick Hits.

First up, Outfolded… (more…)
