The Horus Heresy: Drop Assault Review (Xiaomi Mi 5): Clash of Warhammers, or Something Like It (Video)

I’ve been messing around with a Xiaomi Mi 5 for a week now and I took advantage of the opportunity to also test some games on the device. Among them there’s The Horus Heresy: Drop Assault, available for free in the Play Store and being part of the very appreciated and famous Warhammer 40.000 series. Launched in January 2015 on iOS, this... 

Hopeless 2: Cave Escape Review (Sony Xperia Z5): Lovable Creepers are Back, This Time in an Endless Runner (Video)

We tested the first Hopeless game here and we had a blast with it, but the gameplay was rather limited. You sat in the dark and waited for the bad guys to strike. Now, that game has been turned into an endless runner, dubbed Hopeless 2: Cave Escape, that’s shown in action below. We reviewed it on the Sony Xperia Z5, in case you’re wondering.... 

Xenowerk Review (ASUS ZenFone Zoom): Console-Level Third Person Shooter, a Bit on the Repetitive Side (Video)

While playing with the ASUS ZenFone Zoom, we also had fun with the game Xenowerk, available for free in the Play Store. It’s a third person shooter, with graphics good enough to have made it viable on the PlayStation 2 and first Xbox. The game involves an Ellen Ripley-style character from Alien, who’s fighting… you guessed it, aliens.... 

Alto’s Adventure Review (Gionee S6): Like Ski Safari Met Monument Valey and Took Itself Very Seriously (Video)

We’ve played our share of side scrolling endless runners, but Alto’s Adventure is definitely special, on account of going the extra mile to deliver superb artwork. We played it on the Allview X3 Soul, aka the locally integrated version of Gionee S6 and had a blast. Launched in February 2015 on iOS, the game feels like an artsy Ski Safari... 

NBA Live Mobile Review (Samsung Galaxy A7 2016): Most Fun I’ve Had With an EA Game in a Long While (Video)

Look, I’m a FIFA fan, a huge fan actually and I was surprised at the quality of the game NBA Live Mobile, that I played on the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016). It’s available for free in the Play Store and while at first sight it may seem complex, it’s actually pretty straightforward. It has great graphics and initially you’ll find... 

Small and Furious: RC Car Race Review (Allview X3 Soul Mini): Relative Physics, Relatively Fun (Video)

I’ve played my share of games with crash test dummies and strong car impacts, but Small and Furious: RC Car Race is one of the simpler ones. It’s available for free in the Play Store and I played it on the Allview X3 Soul Mini handset. It’s a side scrolling car-based endless runner, only that it’s segmented in levels, that have... 

Grand Theft Auto Liberty City Stories Review (Huawei Nexus 6P): Port of a PSP Classic, With Bite Size Missions, Some Graphical Bugs (Video)

Grand Theft Auto Liberty City Stories was a game I played on the Huawei Nexus 6P, back when I was testing the phone and back when the game’s price had been reduced by quite a bit. Available on Android in mid February, the title got off to a nice start, with a 40% price cut. It’s a port of the PS2 and PSP game from 2005, with enhanced graphics... 

Door Kickers Review (Lenovo Phab Plus): As Close to SWAT Tactical Action as the Smartphone Takes You (Video)

I’ve had the chance of playing the game SIEGE from Ubisoft at the same time with Door Kickers and that was excellent, because they go hand in hand. They’re both tactical simulations of SWAT and police actions, especially taking down terrorists after kicking down doors and doing a surprise attack. Door Kickers is reviewed below. The game... 

Order & Chaos 2: Redemption Review (Xiaomi Mi Pad 2): Solid MMORPG, Almost Like a Mobile World of Warcraft (Video)

I kept hearing about the MMORPG Order & Chaos for years now, but I finally gave it a go a few months ago. I played Order & Chaos 2: Redemption on Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 and this Gameloft title is available for free in the Play Store. Launched in September 2015, the game got a big update in February 2016, so that’s exactly why I tried it out.... 

Rayman Adventures Review (Sony Xperia Z5 Premium): Platformer Meets Two Minigames and Sidekicks that Feel Like Pokemon (Video)

Rayman Adventures is the third big Rayman title exclusively made for mobile by Ubisoft and available for free in the Play Store. We played it on the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium and had fun, although the new control system was kind of finnicky. Launched in December last year, the game is actually a freemium, because there are timers that you may want to...
