I absolutely have no problems with games which are graphically, um, underwhelming. I would choose gameplay a million times over graphics. Stick Man Rescue is one of those unimpressive-looking games that the Minis program offers. This game is a modern clone of Choplifter, and there’s nothing much added to the core gameplay of the classic [...]

Remember Choplifter? The very old Apple II (and then many other platforms) game where you piloted a helicopter and tried to rescue people in enemy territory? Well, it’s back, in stick form. Or at least TikGames is apparently making a clone of it entitled Stick Man Rescue.
A few of the screens seem to indicate it [...]

Dr. Maybee and the Adventures of Scarygirl is based on a graphic novel, Scarygirl, by Nathan Jurevicius. I am not familiar with the graphic novel, so I can’t share any connections between it and the Mini. Actually, this Mini first appeared as a Flash game a few years ago. Unfortunately, the game went offline and [...]

TikGames’ Panda Craze is a clone that borrows a lot of things from classic arcade titles. While that game is all too familiar, it provides a solid gaming experience and promises an immortal shelf life. TikGames is back. This time they are shamelessly ripping off established casual games.
If Zuma and Tetris [...]

Panda Craze from TikGames didn’t get much hype. In fact, after seeing that Panda Craze is the only new mini released on last week’s store update, I was sorely disappointed. The initial screenshots didn’t really hypnotize me. Without even playing the game, I hastily concluded that reviewing this game will be a chore, an act [...]

Caterpillar is the latest game in the TikGames stable to be ported to the Minis platform. It’s a combination arcade and match-3 puzzle game, reminding me a little bit of Dynogems and a little bit of Numba.
There are four gameplay types. All are based around a large grid, 12 x 15, being full of colored [...]
