There’s a warm familiarity to the to-and-fro of negotiating Joe Danger Touch’s mesh of mischievous architecture. Each duck and jump is as true to the franchise as Joe’s protruding jaw and elephantine schnoz – there’s the usual glut of collectibles to gather, devilish tracks to conquer and stumbles to be endured, but in transferring these pleasantries to a new iOS audience, Hello Games have moulded their critically-acclaimed baby to accommodate the subtleties that the change of format commands.

Spellwood knows what it is. Laying down letters of varying values, on an equal sided board to gain higher scores than your opponent isn’t anything new. In fact, the height of developer Three Rings’ ambition plateaus with the inclusion of cutesy, wand-throttling fauna to place the pieces. It’s a well-established format, then, and not a terribly exciting one. But it’s in its execution that Spellwood finds its place.

Farming Giant has it all. Assorted buildings, sprawling landscapes, animals, resources, economics and dozens of different vehicles and attachments – all programmed to carry-off their specific function. There’s a buffet of fruit, veg and seeds to plant and cultivate, as well as relationships to build with prospective clients and multiple ways to develop your burgeoning farming empire. In the end though – in the most absolute sense of the word, it’s all completely meaningless.

Not unlike its bumbling gaggle of impossibly rotund sprites, it’s hard to pin A Game of Dwarves down. Watching your autonomous hive bulge and swell is often a joy, but tackling its literal and figurative layers can oftentimes be both a pleasure and a chore.
Have you ever seen Ghostbusters 2? You have? Great! You haven’t? Well, basically, they’re just done beating up Marshmallow Man and then there’s all this pink ooze just bubbling under the surface of New York City – and it’s really bad – and everyone is getting all pissed off all the time and it makes them want to kill each other. Hold that thought.
