We know you're tired of games that advertise themselves as challenging, only to fall short when you beat them in an hour or two. You want a real puzzle game that is going to bend your brain, you want something that is going to make you work for every victory. Well, you're in luck, because that's the premise behind Minimal: Deluxe.
Today we're here to talk about one of the most fun games we've played for iOS in recent times. We're going to discuss a game that pays homage to some of our favorite games from the 1980s and 1990s, and an arcade title that we think absolutely everyone should give a try. Today, we're here to tell you all about Stealin.
We love it when things are mixed together. Chocolate and peanut butter? Awesome. We're big fans of games that combine different ideas as well. What happens if you take shuffleboard and pinball and cross them? You get a game just like Get the Ball Rolling.
We love construction games. Whether they're fairly broad-spectrum, like Sim City, or more specialized like The Incredible Machine, we just can't seem to get enough of them. That's why we're especially excited to talk about Bridge Constructor, one of our favorite construction games for iOS.
Do you love gigantic robots? What about shooters? Do you hate Orks? Then we've got the game for you! Games Workshop released another Warhammer 40,000 game late last year, and we've finally taken time to look at it. Read on to see how we feel about Warhammer 40,000: Freeblade.
We've talked about word games here countless times at this point, and today we're here to talk about another. This time, we've found a Boggle-like game that we're still trying to sort out, a game that we're actually fairly torn on. If you'd like to see what has us perplexed, we invite you to learn more about a game called Word Swipe Mania.
We're finally checking out the second in the series of our all time favorite games for iOS. Today, we're checking out another one in the emotional, immersive, and downright strange Lifeline series, the fantasy-themed Lifeline 2: Bloodline.
If you've spent any time playing games in the last few years, you're no stranger to "what makes a game a game" debate. You probably have your own theories and ideas, maybe citing things like the magic circle. Well, today, we bring you another game that falls into the "maybe it's not really a 'game' per se," a charming little garden simulator named Viridi.
We're all familiar with voxel style design, right? Minecraft is one of the bigger names, but other games boast the blocky, minimalist sort of feel that seems to be so popular these days. If you've ever had the desire to try designing your own voxel art or game, we've got the program for you: MagicaVoxel.
We've played a lot of mobile games 'round these parts, and we're always excited to share games that we think are great examples of the genres they're in. Today, we found a game that represents arcade action puzzlers perfectly, called Blown Away: Secret of the Wind.

India rejects Apple's refurb request
Apple's request to the Indian government to be allowed to sell refurbished iPhones has been rejected, a move that will hurt the company's efforts to attract budget-oriented consumers. Opposition to the importation of refurbished iPhones is said to have been led by local smartphone makers (and, it should be noted, Samsung), who feared that lower-cost iPhones would undermine the government's own mandates on manufacturing phones in India, and trigger a flood of used electronics into the marketplace, driving prices generally downward. Currently, Apple has just two percent of the smartphone market there, and is also applying to the government for permission to open directly-controlled Apple Stores. That decision is still pending. http://bloom.bg/1rRgi0I
