Luke’s game of the week.
There are so many games in the App Store, and I’m on a quest to play them all, which means I’m always playing a different game each week. Whether it’s brand new or a classic game I’ll let you know what has my attention!

Red’s Kingdom is a perfectly crafted adventure puzzle game that has a lot of depth. The goofy but heartwarming story with its colorful characters is bound to grab your attention, and the incredibly fun gameplay never seems to go stale as the game layers in plenty of elements to surprise you at every turn.
The key to any great puzzle game is finding the right balance between challenge level and fun level. The game has to be difficult enough to warrant using some brain power, but still “easy” enough to keep a player from feeling hopeless; Red’s Kingdom strikes the perfect balance.The game keeps you guessing on where to go next and forces you to explore the each room more thoroughly.
I can’t recommend Red’s Kingdom enough!
