I was originally drawn towards Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?! by its name and bright, cartoon art style. But then I found out that you can tell Cloud his Buster Sword is too huge and, well, now I love the idea of this game.

In it, you manage a team of potato blacksmiths. This means you get to forge various weapons for heroes as they stop off at your shop to kit themselves out for whatever manifestation of evil they’re looking to fight. Why you’re a potato is beyond me, but hey, if GLaDOS can be a potato then so can I.

Fantasy puzzle game Spirit Horizon review

3 Jan, 2014

Source: GamesInAsia

Developed by Singapore’s Daylight Studios and published by IAHgames, Spirit Horizon is a shiny new fantasy match-3 puzzle adventure mobile game.

It is less like Candy Crush and more like Line Jelly. Gems in Spirit Horizon come in four different elements — fire, wind, water, and earth. Players must connect three or more gems to create combos to fight monsters. The more combos you have, the more damage you will be dealing to the incoming Mist monsters. Spirit Horizon also attempts to add in some interesting challenges to the gameplay. For example, gems could be burning under a mob’s special power. You can still burst the gems, but the side effect is that you will be dealt burn damage.

The Gutsy Entrepreneur

But the hero always emerges as the victor by sheer resilience and courage. I recently met up with a Singaporean entrepreneur, and his journey is very much that kind of story. Plus, his startup has all the ingredients to become very successful in the near future.
