The problem with trying to tell people about Spry Fox's Alphabear is stopping playing long enough to do so -- at least in any form besides random tweets. Normally I am not a big fan of mobile games that encourage users to post Twitter or Facebook updates, but every now and then there are exceptions.

I want to enjoy a MOBA. I've tried every popular multiplayer battle arena game -- DOTA 2, League of Legends, Heroes Of The Storm, Infinite Crisis. Each has its charms, but I've never quite felt at home in any of them. My enthusiasm for Super Evil Megacorp's Vainglory suggests I may have been looking on the wrong platform.


On the one hand, Spider-Man Unlimited is a free-to-play mobile game from Gameloft. On the other, it's a game with fourteen different versions of Spider-Man to collect at launch. "Free-to-play mobile game from Gameloft" versus "fourteen different versions of Spider-Man." I am so conflicted.


Feature mostly female feathered heroes and released alongside a line of pink-centric toys, one wouldn't be blamed for assuming Angry Birds Stella is a game for "girls." It's a game for any fan of the series who wants to see how far it's come -- and the unfortunate direction its going in.


Matching gems to cast elemental spells, buying more powerful weapons and armour, equipping runes that unlock powerful skills and spells -- Backflip Studios' Spellfall is everything I've ever wanted in a puzzle RPG, plus agressive microtransactions.
