Heavenstrike Rivals: A True Blessing of a Game
If the name Square Enix rings a bell, I wouldn't be surprised.

However, most people are unaware of some of their excellent mobile games, and this title just so happens to be one of them. Heavenstrike Rivals released February 25, 2015 for Android...
Oxenfree: An Impossible Game of Hide and Seek
Many of us would like to think we've had paranormal experiences, but nobody has had an experience quite like this one. Oxenfree was originally released in January of 2016.

Lanota: Roundabout Rhythm
What's up Yellow Jackets? It's been a while since we've had a new episode! This month, I'll be covering Lanota, originally published by Noxy Games in 2016 for mobile devices. I realize this is a little old, but it's still relevant within the rhythm game community, and it definitely has plenty to offer! Between beautiful music and amazing gameplay, why don't you and I give this game a spin? ...
