Our reviewer is used to translating books he reads from Japanese, but even he was confused at what the Sword and Fairy 6 game was trying to accomplish. The story is a terrible, badly translated jumble, and the graphics, audio and controls are just as rotten.
Billy is taking another look at a previous Time Waster this week with Flip: Surfing Colors Season Two, but how does it compare to the first season?
While the game really isn’t designed to break any barriers, the remake of Super Phantom Cat on the Nintendo Switch will have you remembering the good old days when platforming really was super. Platformer fans, or those who like pixelated cats, should check it out.
A much darker sci-fi series than many readers are probably used to experiencing, War’s Reward is the sixth and final book in the Free Fleet tale. Although some of the series was borderline insufferable at times, the story wraps up nicely with all plotlines satisfactorily completed.

While our reviewer will be looking at the whole package, we thought you might enjoy a detailed video of the single player adventure.
Billy is returning to the land of smartphone games this week as he checks out the mobile version of the classic racing game Race the Sun. When you are racing forward in a sleek solar powered aircraft, your only choice is not to let the sun set without you!

After stumbling a little bit in episodes two and three, The Council comes back really strong in its final chapters, cementing it’s legacy as a great narrative journey that perfectly balances storytelling, puzzle solving and meaningful dialog choices in a tight adventure game.
Billy is taking a short break from mobile games this week to look at Labyrneath II, which is the sequel to a previous game featured in the Time Waster.
