Maybe it was the tweets I saw promoting the game’s launch on Android. Maybe it was the reminder to myself about unfinished games that I put in my bio beneath my articles. Maybe it was just the fact I was sick last week and looking for a distraction, but I finally finished The Room: Old Sins on my iPad. It remains…
Stop watching movies on your iPad. Stop browsing the web.

The beautifully-written survival exploration game Sunless Sea came to iPad last week. It feels right at home on mobile.
Sunless Sea is coming to iPad in the spring, Failbetter Games announced today. It won’t include the Zubmariner expansion, but I’m sure there will still be plenty of ways to die.

Star Wars Uprising, the new Diablo clone sitting atop the iTunes charts, could more appropriately be titled Star Wars: Uninspiring. The game is competent. That’s about it.
My go-to mobile game for time-filling fun used to be Drop 7. Then it was Threes. These days it’s Sage Solitaire, a new riff on solitaire from the ever-interesting developer Zach Gage. I’m making pairs, straights and flushes, often while listening to a podcast. I’m hooked!
People with iPads, here’s your new “what should I play on my next airplane flight/long car ride?” game. It’s part roguelike. It’s part tower defense. It was born on PC. It survived its port to tablets. It requires brains and reflexes. And it’s also really good.
Five bucks spent and an hour in, I’m having a very good time with Lara Croft GO, the new mobile Tomb Raider spin-off that came out a few hours ago. It’s turn-based. It’s full of tomb raiding.
