Kubo: A Samurai Quest Reviews (Updated!)

Posted on October 20, 2016

We've received some wonderful reviews for our first game Kubo: A Samurai Quest while our app store ratings have been huge.  We're so appreciative of all your support and so happy you like our little game.

"Kubo: A Samurai Quest is an immersive Match 3 puzzle game with a lovely soundtrack. I can honestly say Kubo: A Samurai Quest is one of the best Match 3 puzzle games I've played (and I've played a lot).  It has beautiful graphics, a nice story line and inspiring music" - Android Guys


"The game looks like it's made from origami. The LAIKA style and creature battles make this match 3 puzzle game an addicting and welcome change of pace for licensed games. Fifth Journey Limited has provided some hope for licensed games. I look forward to their next release. 8/10" - GameSkinny


"With its variety of match-three gameplay types folded together like an origami samurai, this gorgeous puzzler enthralls us just like the movie that inspired it. Pulling off a massive chain-reaction combo or vanquishing an enemy with our team of paper companions is endlessly satisfying. We even find ourselves cranking up the music, just to head-bob along to Kubo's fast-fingered shamisen stylings." - Apple App Store Editor

MI2:SE — We Have ANOTHER Hit!

Posted on July 23, 2010

The reviews are starting to come in and it looks like we have another hit!  Here are just a few of the reviews (click the image for the full review):

"The laid-back, story-driven adventures of the 1990s lost ground this century to more trigger-happy games, but they're making a comeback on the iPad. The best of the bunch is LucasArts' "Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge," a hilarious pirate tale that's been lavishly upgraded from its 1991 release."

4.5 out of 5

"Though purists shouldn’t throw away their old floppy disks, there is something for everyone to love in the Monkey Island 2: Special Edition, as the upgraded version is a wonderful way to experience one of the all-time adventure classics."
