Pokémon, the ubiquitous animated creature who’s been of modern culture since 1996, returns in the Pokémon Quest in which Pokemon sets out on a new adventure.
Pokémon Quest is reminiscent of the original Pokémon games which were RPGs (Role-Playing Games) which included elements of strategy. In Pokémon Quest
the player takes the cube-shaped Pokémon on an adventure to Tumblecube Island where he – and you – search for hidden treasure while battling the wild Pokémon.
The game is full of cute creatures who migrated from Pokémon Blue and Pokémon Red. It’s a bit of a puzzle game with customization in which you’re challenged to compose the perfect team for each expedition. Each character has different moves that can be arranged randomly. There are grids of Power Charms, Power Stones, HPs and Attacks and Bingo Bonuses.
All in all, a fun-filled game – not challenging but relaxing.
Limbo follows the story of a boy who wanders through a haunting industrial jungle, encountering surprises along the way – not a light-hearted game at all. There’s no backstory and no dialog which some players find frustrating but others see as allowing them to develop their own creative explanations.
Reviewers rate this as The Top 2018 iPhone game. There aren’t any cut scenes, loading screens or video clips to interrupt the action which is comprised of visuals, sound, and gameplay.
The basic goal of the game is to get out of the mysterious forest. You make your way through the forest, encountering obstacles – many of which can kill you. After each death you restart, positioned before the trap that killed you so you get to figure out how to get around each obstacle. The challenges increase, creating a trail that gets harder and harder and more and more exciting.
The Game of Life
The board Game of Life is now on mobile so you can experience all of the life-cycle events in a game on mobile. This is a game that can be played solely or in a multi-player mode so you have the option to play against the computer or against real opponents.
The challenge of the game is to make the right decisions to get you through the milestones of life – marriage, career, financial challenges, investments, car accidents, illnesses……a fun and educational game for the whole family.
If you’re looking for a light-hearted game, Ocmo isn’t the right choice for you. Ocmo is a dark game in which you kill ragdoll rabbits as you maneuver Ocmo through different environments. As the game progresses the challenges become more difficult. You need to navigate Ocmo towards the rabbits without endangering Ocmo himself.
The Ocmo creature is a squid-like create that moves with a mesmerizing fluidity. It expands and contracts its tentacles as it sticks to surfaces and flings itself off of them to keep the player on the ball with exciting maneuvers. There are 80 levels of gameplay so there’s plenty to keep you busy in this game.
Frost is a visually attractive puzzle game filled with powerful background music and stunning vibrant colors. As you move through the levels you’ll be presented with a palate of different colors plus an orb that’s filled with one specific color.
Your job is to guide the color from the palate into the orb, matching the orb’s existing color. The beauty of this game is that it’s a simple, relaxing mix and match game that tests your coordination while it allows you to zone out to complete the puzzle. It’s a game that fits perfectly on your phone so you don’t end up wishing for a bigger screen.
Once you get going the game gets a bit harder – you encounter colors that need to be mixed together to produce the right color, color groups that require the nudge of a different group to push them along, giant beams of light hat can stop your swarm in their tracks and other challenges. New concepts and behaviors are introduced on every level so by the time you hit the 20th level you won’t be zoning out any more.
Hocus is based on the graphics of M.C. Escher and includes 100 levels that will challenge your memory and mind. Every level involves a group of minimalist 3D shapes that are arranged in the form of cubes or lines.
The game involves controlling a cube which you roll to a target place. The twist in the gameplay is that the whole level design is based on the Penrose Triangle. Players who want to really test their control skills can attempt to use the complex controls but if that gets too difficult it’s possible to simply use a mouse.
