App/Game of the Week, Features, Football, Game of the Month, Retro Bowl

‘Retro Bowl’ offers top-notch football action with a retro twist

If you've ever watched a soccer game and found yourself thinking you could do a better job than the coach, Retro bowl is for you. This excellent title created by New Star Games is not new, but it is incredibly good. The premise is simple: Players take on the role of a new coach with an NFL team and have to form their team to win the title trophy. I'm not really a sports guy, but when I started playing this game earlier this month, I could hardly put it down. Part of the magic for me was that the game was part management simulator and part real soccer game. I could study statistics from different rookies, trade and hire players to improve my team's offensive and defensive rating. I also had to balance the contracts of my offensive and defensive assistant coaches, keep an eye on team ...
app of the month, App/Game of the Week, Bitwarden, Features, password manager

Bitwarden offers great password management tools with great value

If you don't already have a password manager, you really should get one. In addition to significantly improving the convenience of logging on to websites and applications, password managers are a great way to improve your online security.

Most also allow you to generate random strong passwords that, on your own, you probably wouldn't remember. The other benefit is that it allows you to use a different password for each website. That is a great help for security since if hackers compromise one password, they do not compromise them all. That said, there are a variety of great password manager options. However, I recently discover...
App/Game of the Week, Features, Game of the Month, Soda Dungeon 2

‘Soda Dungeon 2’ offers laid-back dungeon crawling with pixel-art graphics

This month, I spent some time enjoying Soda Dungeon 2, an early-access game that arrived on Android at the end of May. I’ve had a blast with this pixel-art dungeon crawler. Considering it’s set to launch on iOS, Android and Steam next week, now seems like a great time to write about it. Soda Dungeon 2 is a sequel to 2015’s Soda Dungeon, a free-to-play mobile game that was later ported to PC. Like the original, Soda Dungeon 2 will have players exploring a massive dungeon, fighting monsters and upgrading a local village to get better gear and adventurers for delving deeper into the dungeon.If that sounds a little intense, you don’t need to worry. Dungeon combat is mostly handled through simple turn-based actions. Players tap on an enemy to attack it or select one of their party members...
