Horizon Chase (AND)
Racing 19 November 2015
A racing game for mobile devices, developed by Aquiris Game Studio and inspired by the 16-bit classics of the genre such as the Lotus series, Outrun, and Top Gear. In Horizon Chase, the action is observed from a camera placed behind the car, and our task is to complete subsequent tracks as quickly as possible. We have several vehicles of various performance at our disposal. With them, we race on deserts, city outskirts, and motorways. The driving model is purely arcade, while the gameplay is very fast-paced. Visually, the developers combined the camera behavior and track design from classical two-dimensional racing games with fully three-dimensional objects in the form of angular, slightly textured models. The final result presents itself quite curiously — it blends modernity with clear references to the classics. The game features a soundtrack created by Barry Leitch who composed music for the several aforementioned productions.
Five Nights at Freddy's 2 (AND)
Adventure 12 November 2014
Five Nights at Freddy's 2 provides a continuation to an unusual game created by Scott Cawthon and awarded a series of prizes - it was considered the most original horror title of 2014. In this second installment, the player takes on the role of a new watchman working at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. Despite the warnings received from his predecessor, he decided to give it a try and stay at the restaurant overnight. Although the entire building was rebuilt and the famous animatronics were gifted with completely new software along with a face recognition system, the robots are still hungry for human lives after dark. Surviving five subsequent nights at the restaurant turns out to be quite a challenge. In terms of the mechanics, the second installment is based on a slightly modified gameplay formula of the original game. Instead of being in charge of a lighting system, the protagonist is equipped with only a flashlight. The watch room has one entrance only now, but without a door. Thus the only way to avoid getting killed by the animatronics here is to put on a special mask which fools the face recognition systems of the robots.

An original horror game created by Scott Cawthon, an independent gamemaker. The player assumes the role of a watchman who takes up a seasonal job at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. What is important about the restaurant, is that mechanical mascots are its main attraction.

Trapped in a cramped watch room, the protagonist has to avoid contact with murderous robots during five subsequent nights. The task is not easy, because using various devices, such as lighting and monitoring systems, as well as locking the door drains the power supply, which has to be appropriately managed throughout the entire night. Despite its simplistic mechanics, Five Nights at Freddy's provides a good dose of anxiety and is capable of frightening the player with ease.

Logic 18 November 2014

Players must assemble poker hands from falling cards before they reach the bottom of the screen. We drag the pieces we need into correct place, while those we have no use for can be exchanged for others with a single tap. This simple concept is varied through the addition of many power-ups. Naturally, every poker combination earns us points, and we are given additional tasks and high-scores to beat on later levels. One noteworthy thing is that virtual currency won in this game are sent to our character’s account in Far Cry 4.
