Make Hexa Android puzzle

Make Hexa on Android Review, ZTE ZMAX 2 Device

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 go to genres. I discovered hex puzzles when I had an old Nokia smart phone […]

We are trying a new focus here at Gravis Ludus so expect more coverage of modern games on Playstation, Xbox, Steam, etc. One of the first titles we wanted to mention in this new direction was Shift Happens by Deck 13. Fans that miss the classics of days gone by will probably find a lot […]

The Human Age by Noodlecake

Human Age Review on Android

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 Flipull, puzzle games are staples of gaming. More recently we saw the popularity rise of […]

WWE Champions Android

Review – WWE Champions

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 devices to me are cell phones. Okay, with that out of the way, onwards with […]

Angry Birds Blast

Review – Angry Birds Blast on Android

Rovio are certainly keeping the Angry Birds license alive and active in the gaming world. We saw quite a bit of saturation with the original, physics based, model and we are seeing more branching out now. The Angry Birds group has gotten around alright, from downhill racing to Bust-A-Move style puzzlers to Clickomania style ones, […]

Review – Knight’s Tour on Android

Puzzle games are a dime a dozen on mobile platforms.  This is apparent by simply opening your favorite mobile game store – go ahead, try it.  While there is a deluge of match 3 games that hope to capture 1/1,000th of the success of Bejeweled or Candy Crush Saga, there are a few unique puzzle […]

Review – Fit in the Hole Android Game

I have to wonder if at least some inspiration for Fit in the Hole by Ketchapp was drawn from Fox’s short lived television show, Hole in the Wall.  First, those who know me know I am not a fan of endless running games and that is essentially what Fit in the Hole is.  What is unique […]

Review – 2048 Knight Android Game

The land is over run with creatures and you must take up arms and defeat them before life as you know it is eradicated.  That is pretty much the backstory for 2048 Knight.  As you can tell from the name, this one is based on 2048, the popular number swiping game.  The difference here is […]

Six! Review, Physics Puzzle Tower Destruction Game on Android

Hmm, what is this?  A puzzle game where you simply click the pieces below and they disappear causing things to fall.  I think I could get into this, that is what I thought the first few minutes I played of Six! by Gram Games.  After about half an hour of playing I was getting into […]

Lumines Puzzles and Music Neo Released on Android

Lumines is one of those classic puzzle games that you probably will have trouble putting down.  It is also a newer puzzle game, having launched on the Playstation Portable (PSP) years ago and continuing to infect gamers minds since.  The game play is simple, this is something that the successful puzzle games have in common- […]
