MetalWars 3 Review

Metal Wars 3 is not content with generic ineptitude. This game outright bullies its players into making in-app purchases by slowing the upgrade system down to a crawl, while ramping up the difficulty of its monotonous gameplay at a highly disproportionate rate. When I think about the time I spent grinding through this game to completion without giving in to Goorusoft’s extortion racket, I lament my quickly fading youth, and the wasted hours spent trying to simply play this game that I theoretically already owned.

Inferno+ Review

At first glance, Inferno+ ‘s self-designated label as an Action-RPG seems to be a bit of an exaggeration. The upgrade system is fairly limited, you’re given no context for your actions, and while there are non-linear maps to explore, your only objectives are to find keys and locate the exit. But don’t let its bare-bones arcade presentation fool you: Inferno+ is a surprisingly engaging and stylish dungeon crawler, stripping both its parent genres down to their cores for one of the best action experiences on the Play store.

Super Mega Worm Review

For those of you out there who have always dreamed of playing as the worm from Tremors , and have not owned an iOS device at any point in the 2010s, then I am pleased to announce that your long exodus has reached its happy conclusion. Super Mega Worm has arrived on Android devices, and lo, its wrath has descended upon our smartphones like the hellfire of a thousand angry ’80s haircuts.
