The odd ones
A truly amazing game, one that really gets us talking, uses every inch of our devices to the fullest. But sometimes, all you need is a game that quite simply, blows your mind. And these oddball picks give a masterclass in exactly how to wow.
The meaning of life?
Do you like tough platformers? And, why do you actually play them? These are the questions you’ll be asked, and likely ponder, while playing Sometimes You Die. Not only is it made up of lots of challenging single screens and a great exampe of the platform genre, but it’s also an interesting meta-comment on gaming and what motivates us.
Sometimes You Die
Are you sure that’s how you do it?
We all know what the summer games are about. And even though the rules might seem complicated at times, they do make sense (eventually). Unless that is, you’re playing Justin Smith’s Realistic Summer Sports simulator. If you’re the type of person who thinks sports tend to make little sense though, this won’t help to change your mind. Figuring out the controls is half the game; trying not to laugh is the other.

Would you like pineapple on that skeleton?
Skeletons rising from the grave. This will be a night of horror! Or will it? Not if you ask their doughy nemesis: a giant rolling pizza (what else!). In Pizza Vs. Skeletons, you tilt your iPhone or iPad to roll over those bony nuisances as they come your way. And if you think this mix of skeletal attackers and a frontline defending pizza is as strange as, well, pineapple on a pizza – you’re right. But it works.

Where’s... those other guys?

Once upon a time?
Your tale begins with Anna, a girl who wakes up in an unfamiliar castle, where nothing is what it seems. Imagine having to walk over the pages of a book to read it. Well that’s how it feels to experience the world of Device 6. You hear sounds and see the pages of your book twist and turn in front of you as you try to solve mysterious puzzles.
Was it ever this simple?
Remember gaming in the ’80s? Especially handheld gaming? It often came in the form of black and white LCD screens. Admit it: If you had one of the now classic handhelds, you probably gave in to temptation and pressed your fingers hard on the screen to see those glorious LCD pixels blur out. That and all kinds of other technical limits are available in Monkey Labour - 80s handheld LCD retro game just as you remember them. Super simple gameplay included.
