Hidden Folks (iOS)

Clever. Adorable. Passive. Ambient. So many adjectives fit this delightful little gem. Hidden Folks isn’t more than a miniature handheld plaything, like a stress cube on a touch screen.

Portal Power goes so far as to twist the existence of the Turtles into their cornball late generation toy forms. They don skater gear, knight suits, space suits, samurai; a chunk… Continue reading TMNT: Portal Power (iOS)
