iOS 9.3 iPhone 6S

So, I wasn't having any issues with the game on iOS 9.2.1, but once I updated to 9.3, the game suddenly had black bars on the sides. Like a game that hadn't been updated for widescreen. Which is strange, because I know it's widescreen supported... I have no clue what settings were changed with the iOS 9.3 update, but they messed this game's display up. I doubt it'll ever get fixed (and I don't expect it to, it is Apple's fault anyway and look at how long GameCenter has been broken). Just thought I should let people know that the game might not be as easy to play if you update your OS.

Diamond in the bRough

iOS games don't get better than Brough, one of the true geniuses of the indie game movement. Get this, and get 868-HACK and Imbroglio, his two brilliant roguelikes- his take on the genre is so special it deserves to be considered its own subgenre... Broughlikes! And don't stop playing until you get to the point you can't stop playing. Take it from me, Helix World Champion for two years running, and top 10 player of all Brough's iOS releases.

Watch the clock!

This is my favorite iOS game. I can't stop playing the darn thing. I just finally beat one of the developer's high scores and I feel like the kid in The Wizard. This thing's brilliant in all facets. Very cool hypnagogic art style, killer computer virus music, super secrets. People on public transit stop and ask me what this game is. Gosh darn!
