Game of Thrones: Winter is Coming

Steven Roberts
Written on April 5, 2019
"One of the things I liked most about this game is its environment. Not like some of the medieval games I've played where you only have to hack your way thru hordes of enemies, GoT: WiC also lets me strategize my every move and plan ahead in joining alliances as well as making trades. A must-try for every fledgling Westeros lord!"

    "I went to college for engineering so it takes a certain kind of game to keep my attention. I read about Poly Bridge and decided to give it a try. It is such a addictive game. Build and engineer your bridges and hope they are strong enough. You can really tell someone put some thought into this game as the physics are almost spot on. If it won't work in real life, the game isn't going to let you have it either. A great game."

    "Didn't know that this was an iPad Game of the Year. I think this is why my sister recommended it to me. The analytical thinking in playing Osmos should be above average. IYKWIM. 😉"

    "At first, I just expect that I'm just going to build a bridge but it is different since you have to consider what kind of bridge you will make based on cars, trucks, etc. 👍"

    "This game is a great deal of fun, and I can't remember the last time I played something so clever. I like to think of it like digital "mouse trap"; set it all up and see what it does. I find it to be lots of fun, though I wish they'd give us more levels."

    "I enjoy video games and especially 80s video games. I am glad to see some of them make a comeback even if in different forms. This game reminds me of Quiqqly (I think this is the name). It was a squiggly character who you would have to use to jump on different areas of a pyramid to clear the board. This game, however, takes play to another level in collecting candy on different missions. Good fun."

    "At this point in time Angry Birds is pretty much a classic of phone games. I've had my time with the game and still dink around with it from time to time when I'm travelling on a plane or something. It's fun but gets old fast. This game has probably influenced many other phone games, probably more than any other game. Everyone with a phone should give it a try at least once."
