    Outside of its quirky storyline and off-base puzzles, The Mystery of Marie Roget pretty much keeps things middle of the road. Many of the mini-games are super fast and easy to solve, barely even qualifying as “mini” by some standards. You do have some fun diversions to keep you entertained, however, such as the mirror that provides clues and the morphing item collection screen that takes the form of an aquarium. If you don’t mind a little rough voice acting and the occasional frustrating puzzle solution, Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poe’s The Mystery of Marie Roget will give you a fantastic ride from beginning to end.

    My NBA 2K18 is essential for serious NBA 2K18 players and something close if you enjoyed previous versions, but could be hit or miss for other basketball and sports gaming fans. If you’re looking for something light and well-made to play whenever you have time, you could do worse than this, but if you’ve tried it in the past and found it didn’t do much for you, there’s not much new so far to make you feel differently.

    This isn’t a gaming experience where hand-holding would feel appropriate, but there are definitely times when a little more guidance would be nice. Once you’ve sunk some time into Iron Marines, though, you’re likely to be delighted by the way it works both your brain and your fingers simultaneously, which is what truly excellent RTS titles always manage to do. It’s not easy, but when the going gets tough, the Iron Marines get going. If that’s not a phrase that people say, consider it officially coined.

    A game that’s great in small doses but the flaws in which make it difficult to sit with for a long time, especially after the first play. For the most part that’s OK, in a world full of games it can be impossible to put down, sometimes not losing your whole weekend to your phone can be a great thing.

    Witches’ Legacy: Slumbering Darkness is built on a pretty standard hidden object frame, but it stands out thanks to excellent art design, unique puzzles, and creative mini-games. The hidden object scenes alone are worth the price of admission. If you’re in the mood for an off-beat casual adventure game, turn off the lights and let Witches’ Legacy creep you out.

    Overall, if you’re already an Eight-Minute Empire fan, you’ll likely be impressed by how it’s been transported to mobile. If you’re a strategy fan in general, it might be the perfect game to add to your arsenal for those days when you’re short on time but still want to play. It’s also a great game for families who are planning road trips. This isn’t a game for everyone – it lacks the crossover appeal that’s likely to convert massive amounts of folks who aren’t keen on strategy – but it does exactly what it says on the tin.

    I’m glad my problems with Burgle Bros aren’t serious, because I really wanted it to be a fun but not overly-complicated board game heist and that’s exactly what it ended up being. If you’re into tactical board games and have a thing for heist movies, you might want to check it out.

    Overall, even leaving the performance issues aside, it’s unlikely that Mini Guns will be the best mobile game you’ll ever play. It’s fun, but once you’ve collected all the minis on offer, the game loses its major hook. Still, for the first several hours or days you might just discover that you’re more of a fan of strategy games than you were before.

    Small Town Terrors has a lot of classic adventure style puzzles that are straightforward but always fun to complete. If you find a bucket you know you’ll need to fill it with water. Because obviously, right? These flow well with the often abstract solutions that need a little trial and error to solve. They’re also helped along by a few small extras such as the morphing crystal ball objects hidden in every scene. While the story of Galdor’s Bluff will draw you in (everybody loves magician drama!), the off-beat puzzles and approachable mini-games will keep you coming back for more. Just remember that these are professional tricksters you’re dealing with. Nothing is ever as it seems.

    Even the strong wrapper can’t overcome the lack of focus with this title. As great as the whole package sounds on the tin – shooting, strategy, historic gameplay, alternate realities – it just doesn’t pay off.

    It’s an argument that could extend to many idle clickers, but usually the genre offers titles that distract you from realizing how futile things are. Merge Town! hardly does this, and it certainly doesn’t last for any great deal of time. Throw in the fact that there are just too many adverts available to you, either through your own choice or in a compulsory manner, and Merge Town! just isn’t much fun. There’s too little game in here to keep you amused for longer than a few minutes.

    The entire Redemption Cemetery: Salvation of the Lost experience is understated and intriguing. The puzzles are well thought out and provide just the right amount of challenge. Mini-games and hidden object scenes are used sparsely so you always appreciate their arrival, and the game’s unique raven-element system is a nice touch. Redemption Cemetery also manages to avoid most of the cliches common in casual adventure games, freeing you up to enjoy some crazy items and even crazier puzzle solutions.

    The mood of Dark Dimensions: Homecoming is slightly on the spooky side, but this is a game that doesn’t take its story genre too seriously. Expect a healthy amount of mystery and intrigue as you dig through the mansion’s otherworldly mysteries, and expect a solid grounding in character motivations and puzzle solutions, too. Homecoming is a well-balanced and entertaining game that hits all the right marks.

    It’s cute and quite charming, and its controls are spot on accuracy wise, but all too swiftly it finds itself lacking that ‘wow’ factor. This is a title that’s a bit disposable.

    Ultimately, Angry Birds Match is near replica of just about every other basic match-3 game, offering very little beyond a nominal collection mechanic. To successfully contribute a new entry to the overcrowded match-3 space, there must be something special about the mechanics, the characters, the environments, or the extra features. Rovio has skimped on all of that to produce a glorified rehash with some cute baby birds. However, if you’re desperate for some new match-3 action and are a fan of the Angry Birds aesthetic, then you may find something you like here.

    Overall, Toon Blast is a great game, particularly for young players. The only thing holding it back? A revenue generation model that isn’t quite compatible with its core audience. It’s possible that the developers didn’t foresee that Toon Blast would be presented as a ‘kids game’, but positioned alongside the likes of Toy Blast, it’s hard to imagine that this isn’t their main demographic.

    From top to bottom, Holy Potatoes! is a delightful game. It really, truly is. There are few games that can deliver as many days, weeks or even years of fun as Holy Potatoes! A Weapons Shop?!

    Overall, Snipers vs Thieves might not rock your world. It will, however, provide you with a few hours of fun, particularly if you’re looking for something a little bit different to do with your friends who wouldn’t call themselves gamers.

    At times, there’s the odd moment where you’ll wonder if your finger slipped too far away from the button/general area and you’ve failed at gliding, but Cat Bird! is mostly pretty well constructed. It’s completely free too, albeit backed up with many ads, unless you choose to pay up to remove them. That gives you the ideal opportunity to try out Cat Bird! and see if it’s for you.

    With a steady stream of freebies via daily bonuses, and chests that can be unlocked for extra goodies, Battlejack does a good job of drip feeding content and therefore luring you in. It may never quite stick in your mind as a game to remember for years to come, but its charm and steady progress means you’ll likely return to it any time you want a win during your day. Sometimes, that’s just what you need.

    It’s an unusual thing but Data Wing rarely puts a foot wrong. It’s satisfying to play through, offers an intriguing storyline that’ll leave you wondering, and it doesn’t overwhelm you with options. Throw in the fact that it’s entirely free, there’s simply no reason why you wouldn’t be downloading it right this second. It’s quite the delight.

    I hate how much it feels like the dice are intended to roll against me, because otherwise Bottom of the 9th is a solid example of digital board game conversion. I want to say it’s well worth checking out if your a fan of the regular game, or even if you’ve never played it before, but it feels too much like the random number generator that is the dice rolls just isn’t up to snuff. Even then I’d probably recommend it if the frustration of near constant (and seemingly purposeful) failures didn’t undercut most of the fun.

    Overall, Super Phantom Cat 2 offers a lot of free gameplay, with some complexity that elevates it from basic platformer to more robust experience. The appealing graphics and the cool soundtrack make the game feel updated while still nodding to its 80s inspirations.

    Mystery Case Files: Ravenhearst Unlocked is an excellent continuation of the long-running series and proves there’s always a new mystery to uncover. The asylum slant steps out of the usual horror setting and makes you question what’s real and what’s a hallucination, even when you break out and explore the countryside. Keep your wits about you, as this is one of the creepiest MCF games to date.

    In the end, there’s so obviously a better version of this game out there. Sure, it might not be on your phone, but rather than scratching your Pokemon itch, Nexomon is more than likely going to aggravate it. It walks that fine homage line very well, but sometimes it leans just a little too close to its inspiration.

    While there’s little realism here other than basing the planes on the actual plane models, War Wings is a blast. It has that arcade style feeling to it while not being too cheap. You’ll still be able to achieve a fair bit in short bursts, or you can invest yourself fully into being the flying ace of the world. It’s a good mix of keeping you hooked but not requiring a significant commitment, unless you choose to.

    If you like first person shooters, you’ll probably want to give Combat Squad a try — but I wouldn’t be surprised if, for many of you, it doesn’t turn out to be a fast favorite or earn a permanent place on your homescreen.

    This is a charming, sometimes enchanting, way to spend some of your time. It’s not going to stick in the memory for very long, but it’s still a fresh and entertaining slice of pocket-sized gaming that’s going to paint a broad smile squarely in the mouth region of your face.

    Dead Reckoning: Brassfield Manor does a lot of interesting things with the hidden object genre. There are plenty of mini-games to solve, clever puzzles to tease apart, and detective-style diversions to keep you scratching your head. It’s equal parts story and substance, and even though the game itself falls on the easy side, it’s a unique experience that will hook you from the very beginning.
