Orph is an Addictive Puzzle Game

I consider myself a casual gamer. I’ve mentioned in the past that I love to find games that I can pick up and start playing anytime and anywhere, without needing to focus for longer periods. So when I came across Orph this past week, I was naturally hooked. Orph is a puzzle game for iPhone, iPad and Android devices that offers a surreal experience with its design and in-game music. Orph has a fairly simple objective — get the balls...

Horizon Chase — A Modern Take on an Old School Racing Game

I’ve been getting back into racing games ever since I played Driveclub on PS4 and have been on the lookout for a good racing game for every platform I own. Most people think of the Asphalt series when they think of racing games for iOS, and while those games do look nice, they are too IAP-ridden for my liking. Horizon Chase by Aquiris Game Studio is one of the best racing games I’ve ever experienced. It has stunning visuals, is...

Almost Impossible! — Frustratingly Elegant Platforming

Unlike other similar games, you don’t get a level select, but instead you...

Transistor for iOS

Transistor, an action role playing game from Supergiant Games, is one of the best games I’ve played. Available on PlayStation 4, PC & Mac so far, it is now also available for iOS. We featured it in The Highlight last year and it has finally made its way to modern iOS devices. Transistor follows Red, a singer in Cloudbank. She is attacked by the Process and comes into possession of a sword known as the Transistor. When the game begins,...

Alto’s Adventure

Alto’s Adventure by Snowman is a visually spectacular game that we have been looking forward to for a long time here on Beautiful Pixels. The game’s premise is simple — it involves you snowboarding across a gorgeous alpine landscape while rescuing llamas and avoiding obstacles. Yes, it is a single touch controlled game. Each run is different as the game is procedurally generated and you will run into various obstacles including chasms, mountain elders, and rocks. There are six characters...
