“Rymdkapsel is what we imagine playing an isometric, real-time strategy space game on the Atari might have been like back in the day – if the genre had existed then – and it’s fabulous. The complexities that come from gathering resources, expanding your space station, generating new minions, and defending your galactic turf from waves of invading aliens contrast wildly against the simple 8-bit style aesthetic and tightly focused scope. There’s a certain charm to its simplicity, but enough depth to back it up and keep you immersed in the fascinating task of building out your tiny space station empire.”

You might even want to share your disgruntled rants at the end of a particularly crappy work week. Whatever the case, options for blogging right from your iOS device are plentiful. Grab these apps to give your blogging life a big boost.”
“Poised to carve out its spot as one of the most adorable and enchanting point-and-click puzzle adventures of the year, Fetch spins a lighthearted storybook tale of a boy and his search to recover his best pal, a peppy dog named Bear. This charming, science fiction-tinged adventure packs plenty of pooches, perils, and puzzles to pursue, and its kid-friendly vibe makes it a good pick for a game to play with the family.”

“When the world has gone to hell, scavenging bullets and supplies is the only thing left to do in the fight to stay alive against an endless mob of mindless, flesh-eating atrocities that roam the decimated streets. The Walking Dead: Assault delivers a stylish action-focused take on survival in the zombie apocalypse that pays homage to the original comics, all while cooking up something a little different than what we’ve seen from other series tie-ins.”
“Taking the dry complexities of legal battles and turning them on their head, Devil’s Attorney makes courtroom combat feel fresh and fun by re-envisioning the whole affair as a game of turn-based strategy. Unlike other offerings in the genre, you don’t have to wade through reams of annoying dialogue to get to the good stuff. It boils down to grabbing a client, duking it out with the prosecution, wining your case, and getting paid; it’s simple but not lacking in challenge or depth.”
