Rormix App Review: The best way to discover emerging music videos

Music videos are making a comeback. That much is clear in the success of platforms like YouTube and Vevo who showcase music videos from the world’s biggest artists.

Gon App Review: A simple, good-looking physics game

God of Light App Review: A dark and serene puzzle game

The gameplay of God of Light, the new physics-based puzzler from Playmous, is hardly original. The concept of reflecting and refracting light from its source to its intended target is a staple of the puzzle genre. However, in an attempt to make the game shine, God of Light brings some beautiful artwork, a serene soundtrack and whole load of darkness to…
