The Tuesday best of – Point and click adventures for iPhone and iPad

It’s Tuesday. You probably noticed I wasn’t around on Friday and Monday. It’s not because I’m lazy, it’s because they were holidays in the UK. Fret not though, because I’m back, and I’ve got lovely content for you to ogle.

First up we’ve got our Tuesday best of. And since there’s a new Telltale game out, based on Guardians of the Galaxy, I thought it’d be fitting to look at some of the best point and click adventures on mobile.

As usual, you can click on the name of the game below to go and download them. And if you haven’t played any of them, I suggest you should do just that. Yup. Uh huh. Okay then.

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective

A super clever adventure about a dead detective. Solve crimes before they happen by poking and prodding the screen. And have a lovely old time doing it. Fresh and original, it’s gorgeous to look at as well.

Day of the Tentacle Remastered

It was hard to choose one classic remaster to add to this list. I’ve gone for this one though, because it doesn’t get as much love as it deserves. One from the heyday of…

Price Drop: Adventures of Pip (Games)

Adventures of Pip 1.1

Device: iOS Universal
Category: Games
Price: $ 5.99 -> $ 1.99, Version: 1.1 (iTunes)


“Adventures of Pip is a delightful little platformer full of charm, challenge and impeccable level design.”
4/5 – Hardcore Gamer

"A retro platformer that sets itself apart with the protagonist’s transformation from a single pixel into 8- and 16-bit incarnations."
8/10 – EGMNow

“The unique gameplay mechanics, including evo- and devolution, further add to the game’s appeal, setting it apart from many of the modern platformers available today.”
4.5/5 – Gizorama

Adventures of Pip revitalizes the classic side-scrolling action platform genre. Pip — the ultimate digital underdog – is a lowly single pixel in a 32-bit world who proves that you can’t judge a hero by the fidelity of his shaders. During the game, Pip gains the ability to evolve and grow by absorbing pixels from his fallen foes. Those same pixels can then be used to blast through environment puzzles and enemies, devolving Pip back to a single pixel. Players will explore five stylized worlds and experience up to 10 hours of epic adventure saving Pip’s village from the evil Queen DeRezzia.

Inspired by classic platformers, Adventures of Pip basks in a world where players can defeat a huge 32-bit boss as a single pixel or even as an 8-bit character.

With three different forms, evolve and devolve Pip to solve puzzles and defeat enemies; each with their own weakness and strength that must be unraveled throughout the campaign.

The 3 best Tin Man Games adventures you can play on your iPad and iPhone

Tin Man Games has got a new version of the classic gamebook The Warlock of Firetop Mountain coming out next week, so I thought this was a pretty good time to look at some of the company’s other games and decide which three are the best.

Yeah, that’s right, it’s time for one of those articles where I make subjective choices about games in order to get you riled up and shouting at me in the comments. Alas though, it never really works.

Anyway, if you’re just starting your Tin Man journey, these three games are the ones you should be starting with. And if you click on their emboldened names you’ll be taken to the App Store where you can download them. Awwwwww yeah.

Appointment with F.E.A.R

This is the only game on the list that ties back to the Fighting Fantasy gamebooks with which Tin Man made its digital name. And it’s a step up from the more standard swords-and-sorcery experience.

You’re a superhero who’s trying to save the world. And stay alive. And do a bunch of other stuff as well. And the whole game is presented a lot like a comic, which makes it far more exciting to look at.

Bright and bold and with an intriguing story, if you’ve ever thought gamebooks were a bit stuffy, then this is an amazing place to start your adventures.…

Tips and tricks to get a high score in every level of Rayman Adventures

Rayman Adventures is the new mobile follow-up to Jungle Run and Fiesta Run and a lot has changed. The focus is less on speed here (for the most part) and is instead on exploration, thanks to the new ability to change direction.

Rayman also has a new companion called the Incrediballs – cute little creatures which provide handy power-ups that help you get a higher score.

Achieving that high score – and earning the chest of gems to boot – is different in each of the different level types. To help you get there, we’ve compiled a guide to each type to get you earning those gems faster.

Catch all the Lums!

As the name suggests, the aim here is to gather as many Lums as possible. It makes sense then that you should bring three Inhaler Incrediballs into these levels with you.

These Incrediballs draw all nearby Lums into Rayman so you don’t have to work quite so hard to collect them. It’s essential in some of the faster-paced levels.

Aside from that, you should just remain on your guard and make sure to grab as many Lums and coins as possible – making an extra effort to grab purple Lums. These double the number of Lums you collect temporarily and make an enormous difference to your score at the end.

Tips and tricks to get the highest scores in Rayman Adventures

It’s Christmas, that perfect time of year to put your feet up, grab your brand new device, and play some good old mobile games.

Not sure what to play? Well, we recommend Rayman Adventures, the brand new mobile platformer that continues where the excellent Jungle Run and Fiesta Run left off.

That means you’ll sprint, jump, and punch your way through a ton of beautiful new levels – except this time with a much greater freedom of movement.

You can now swipe to change direction at any time, and explore the highs and lows of every level to find hidden stuff. It completely changes your approach to every section.

There’s another exciting new feature – the Incrediballs. These are collectable companions who provide awesome power-ups to help you get higher scores.


And that’s the focus of this here guide, really – to help you use these Incrediballs and Rayman’s skills to get the highest scores in each and every level.

How to use your Incrediballs

Incrediballs are an incredibly powerful new companion for Rayman and you’d do yourself disservice if you ignored them – so don’t.

They come in three different types. Seekers hunt for hidden Teensies and Lums, Protectors temporarily keep you safe from…

Deck Rayman and Barbara in Christmas Costumes in the first Rayman Adventures update

Rayman Adventures, which launched on December 3rd, has already been awarded a place among the App Store’s ‘Best of 2015’.

It picks up where Jungle Run and Fiesta Run left off, except this time there’s a larger focus on exploration thanks to a new ability to swipe and change direction.

Aside from that though, you’ll still be running through a variety of UbiArt-developed levels, beating up enemies, collecting Lums, and freeing captured Teensies as before.

In terms of plot, Rayman and his Viking companion Barbara have to save the enchanted forest which is in danger after the ancient eggs that keep the sacred tree safe were stolen.

These eggs contain Rayman’s greatest ally to date – the Incrediballs. They’re bizarre in appearance but have special abilities which help Rayman to achieve the highest score – and the biggest rewards – in each level.

They come in three different forms. Seekers hunt high and low for hidden items, Protectors beat up enemies, and Inhalers pull all Lums towards you like magnets.


You can bring up to three Incrediballs into a level with you, with the power of their abilities increasing when you choose more than one of the same family.

For example, if you choose three Inhalers, the…
