Quell Reflect Cover ArtThis is a relaxing little puzzle game based on raindrops on a window. The aim is to roll your raindrop over pearls on the screen and collect them all to win the level.


One of my favourite games that I’ve never played is now available on iOS, I device that I don’t have. Costing £11.99, it will only work on the latest versions of the Apple devices and will cost you 4GB of your storage space.

It’s basically no different from the version you can get on Steam aside from an option that lets you disable enemy encounters that play no part in the story.

Still, if you’re a fan with an Apple device that can cope, you’ll be able to keep it in your pocket at all times.

This looks like a nice game. There are no goals, no competitions, no puzzles to solve, just a bird to guide through the skies, gathering a flock. As far as I can tell, you guide the bird through a series of beautiful backgrounds to a gorgeous soundtrack, just gathering more birds for your flock.

The game tells a story with no words, aiming to create a relaxing and uplifting adventure, taking away the stresses of everyday life and making you feel a little better. Actually, just watching the trailer made me smile, so I’m sure the game will too. And in a world where a lot of games are just as stressful as some jobs, this is going to make a nice change of pace.

WordamentWordament is a word game from You vs. the Internet and Microsoft Studios, first released for Windows Phone in 2012. The app is now also available on Windows 8, iOS, Android and online. Plus, there are currently 15 languages to choose from, although some are still in beta.

The aim of the game is to make as many words as you can from a 4×4 grid of letters in two minutes – it’s like an electronic version of Boggle. Using the Xbox Live service, you can play against thousands of other players on the same grid, with a score calculated from values to each letter used a like scrabble. The leaderboard is shown at the end of each round with your ranking against other players worldwide and a list of all possible words from the round. (more…)
