Huawei Ascend XT Review, On Sale For $50 on Black Friday

Huawei Logo

I used to be a ZTE guy. My last three phones were all ZTE devices except for that foray into Windows Phones with Nokia Lumia devices (a 521 on T-Mobile and a 635 on AT&T). Now, I am a Huawei

October Horrors: The Abuse of Ashley Collins

Note: I do not, as a general rule, write reviews laden with spoilers, but I’m making an exception to my rule with this one as it’s essential to understanding why I gave it the rating I did. As an avid

Pokemon Magikarp Jump on Android Review

Pokemon Magikarp Jump Android

Quit laughing. While this is one of the least useful, early on anyhow, Pokemon out there, the game is actually quite addictive. The basic idea is that you are training various Magikarp to jump higher than any other Magikarp. There

Mountain Monsters Season 5 Episode 7 Secret of the Little Girl Review – Spoilers Alert

Mountain Monsters Team Photo

I did a write up on how Mountain Monsters had changed quite a bit from their early days, available here. I probably need to take back most of what I thought there as Season 5 Episode 7 has made me a

Make Hexa on Android Review, ZTE ZMAX 2 Device

Make Hexa Android puzzle

I am a huge fan of just a few genres of gaming. Brawlers (Final Fight, Streets of Rage, etc), Full Motion Video (stop laughing) and puzzle games (Tetris, Columns, Tetris Attack, etc) are all at the top of my gaming

Super Stickman Golf 3 on Android Review

Super Stickman Golf 3

Mobile games seem to fall into very distinct categories, at least the successful ones. Often, they are massively multiplayer in some way, Match 3 Bejeweled games or endless runners. Super Stickman Golf 3 bucks that trend by being a 2D

Power Rangers (2017) Review

Power Rangers

This is not the Power Rangers you grew up with. With that out of the way, I do want to say that there will be spoilers in this review – up to the first hour of the movie anyhow. For

Power Rangers Legacy Wars Android Timing Based Fighting Game Review

Power Rangers Legacy Wars

The Power Rangers just experienced a reboot in theaters this past weekend and shortly before that, we got a new mobile game. Power Rangers Legacy is sort of the “game based on the movie” release that we see in these

Apocalypse Meow Android Overhead Shooter Review

People. There are two types in this world, at least that is what dating sties tell us. Dog people and cat people. Well, cat people, after watching the introduction video for Apocalypse Meow, you have some explaining to do. Cats

Batman Arkham Underground Android Game Review

Batman Arkham Underworld

Batman, the one movie franchise that DC Comics has going that is good. That is if he is on his own – so far, the teaming up thing has not worked out so well. Not nearly as well as it

Photon Strike Overhead Scrolling Android Shooter Review

Photon Strike

Okay, anyone that knows me probably knows I suck at most scrolling shooters. At least today I do. Back in my younger days, around the early to mid-90’s, I was much better at them. At least I think I was.

DomiNations Review

One area that mobile devices fail quite a bit at is the city building or civilization building genre. Sure, lately things have gotten better but we still do not have that Command and Conquer killer or Age of Empires replacement.

Human Age Review on Android

The Human Age by Noodlecake

Puzzle games. Ah, the good old standby that most developers, both commercially and homebrew independent types, pound into the ground. It seems since the early days of gaming puzzle games were going to be around. From Tetris to Columns to

Alto’s Adventure Review, Endless Runner Worth Your Time

Alto's Adventure

Okay, who hates endless running games by now? I know I had my fill of them within a few months of getting my first Android device years ago. That bias has not stopped me from checking out Alto’s Adventure though.

Review – WWE Champions

WWE Champions Android

The WWE have been after that elusive successful mobile game for years. Well, let me differentiate things a bit here: I don’t consider the PlayStation Portable and PS Vita or Nintendo DS and 3DS “mobile” platforms. Those are portables. Mobile

Review – Tiny Station 2

Tiny Station 2 Android

Tiny Station 2 is the follow up to the successful time management game pitted players in the position of managing a car repair shop. What started with the success of Diner Dash mixed with a mechanic shop is now even
