When Oyaji Games announced Mecho Wars for Minis a couple of years ago, it really caught my eye due to the nature of its gameplay (basically an Advance Wars clone) and the unusual style of the artwork. Apparently it was finished a long while ago (the iOS version came out in 2009), but for whatever [...]

Most of the time, in video games, we are put into a situation that requires us to be the good guy, the one that saves the day and the one who slays the horrible-looking monsters. Well, the tired old Beowulf days are over, because in WackyLands Boss, you can be the Grendel, for a fresher [...]

The ESRB has just rated this game from Fair Play Labs. It’s rated just for the PSP, but it’s originally an iPhone game, so it seems likely to be a Mini. Curiously, the publisher on the iPhone was Chillingo (who have brought over numerous Minis, including the upcoming Angry Birds) but the ESRB lists Creat [...]

When I first saw screens of Gold Fever from TikGames, I thought At last! Another Match-3 game for the PSP. Even though that is one of the most popular genres of recent times, there are virtually none on the PSP (just PuzzleQuest, 7 Wonders, and Vempire). As a fan of them, I find this a [...]

I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical of Rocks N’ Rockets from TikGames when I first heard of it. It seemed like a shameless Missile Command clone. And indeed, upon starting the game up, it clearly is a Missile Command clone. But after a few minutes of playing I realized that a Missile [...]

Along with Gold Fever, prolific PSN publisher Creat Studios recently ESRB rated their partner TikGames’s Rocks N’ Rockets for the PSP and PS3, thus it’s probably a Mini. Says the ESRB:
This is an action game in which players attempt to protect a cityscape from incoming space debris. Players fire rockets and bombs at asteroids, [...]
