Gabbuchi – Switch

I’ve only just been making my way through one puzzle platformer – the rather lovely, Tetris-themed Tetra’s Escape – and another has come along for me to take a look at.

Chronicles of Crime – Board Game

There’s an increasing number of games that aren’t afraid to use technology in an interesting and pivotal way. Chronicles of Crime is one such game: a police procedural board game in which the components can be used in a variety of scenarios, both included with the base game and as downloadable extras, via an app available on iOS and Android.
