Portholes Game Review

When the fully automated prison was opened, its governing AI was hailed as the greatest thing ever created. That was over 100 years ago. The AI, KAL 9000, is now old and slow. The prison population has been cut back to reduce the amount of demand on the AI, but it’s still being taxed. After it’s latest update, KAL 9000 divided by zero and decide that the most logical thing to do was to blow up the prison.

Dino Race Game Review

Paleontologists have not discovered anything to suggest that dinosaurs had an advanced culture. No evidence of buildings, cell phones, or hot dog stands from the time of the dinosaurs have been found among the fossilized remains. Another question yet to be answered is if the dinosaurs played organized sports. In this game, you get to participate in one of the oldest sporting events in the pre-history of the world. Continue reading

Between Two Cities Game Review (prepublished version)

American businessman James E. Casey said, “One measure of your success will be the degree to which you build up others who work with you. While building up others, you will build up yourself.” Mr. Casey’s statement holds true within the context of this game. You must cooperatively build a city with a partner on your left and on your right. But don’t be too generous. While this game does require cooperation, only 1 player can be the winner. Continue reading

Hoplomachus: Rise of Rome Game Review

The crowds cheer and chant the for the men who have come to fight and die in the arena. The names of the fallen and those gladiators still fighting are shouted from windows, doorways, and streets with more love than the name of the Emperor. Which, as you can imagine, has the Emperor worried. Concerned that his own reputation is on the line (not to mention his life), the Emperor decrees that Rome and Pompeii will now enter the arena to show the Empire that the greatest warriors are those who are loyal to the Emperor and the Emperor alone. Continue reading

Tiny Epic Defenders Game Review

The Amberden Affair Game Review

Last Starfleet Game Review (prepublished version)

Succeed and live. Fail and become extinct. Continue reading

The King’s Abbey Game Review (prepublished version)

In the midst of these dark times, abbeys became hubs of a more civilized existence. Trade and prosperity was common, which often drew unwanted attention. You are tasked to improve your abbey and defend it. All the while, the world grows ever darker beyond your walls. Continue reading

Mad Scientist Game Review

The island of Daku is remote, desolate, and all but forgotten. It was the perfect location for a military base focused on experimental weapons. The report doesn’t say why, but the military base was abandoned 10 years ago. Nothing in the report suggests that anything was left or taken from the island during the evacuation. That’s peculiar. Rumor has it that a well-known scientist bent on causing chaos has moved to the same island. Time to investigate. Continue reading
