Modern Review: Simon The Sorcerer: 20th Anniversary Remake


If there is any genre of gaming that is the perfect fit for Tablet and Touch devices, then it has to be point and click adventure games.

Modern Review: Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes (DS)


Might And Magic, one of the classics of PC RPGs, was squeezed onto the DS’s two tiny screens in the form of a puzzle based RPG from Ubisoft. However, the switch from pure RPGing to more puzzle based gameplay doesn’t hurt the game at all and plays wonderfully to the DS’s strengths.
