Tiny Tower Review

Tiny Tower LogoI can’t think of another iOS game that has chewed up as much time or battery life as Tiny Tower, and frankly I have no idea why. This free-to-play title from NimbleBit tasks you with managing a tower by building businesses, staffing them with residents called “bitizens” and maintaining stock levels. It’s simplistic and shallow, pointless and seemingly endless, yet I just can’t stop playing it.

A brief tutorial starts you off with a business floor and a residential floor to house your first bitizens. Each residential floor can hold up to five bitizens and each business can be staffed with three workers. One item can be stocked for each worker you have in a business. Read More...

Cause of Death Review

Cause of Death LogoThis EA Mobile puzzle-adventure for the iOS platform is a text-based but action-packed thriller. The game’s innovative content delivery system is built like a weekly television series, with new episodes “airing” every Friday and available for download for the following seven days. Featuring Detective Mal Fallon of the San Francisco Police Department and Special Agent Natara Williams of the FBI, Cause of Death is captivating and exciting.

The game is available as a free download on the App Store with advertisements or can be purchased for $1.99, ad-free. Included with the game is Volume One (a complete series of chapters), which sends Mal and Natara on the hunt for the Maskmaker, a ruthless serial killer that preys on young woman. The suspense is strong through the game and the plot twists will keep you guessing. Read More…
