Blood Bowl Review: This One’s for the Fans

 
 
 
 
 

Blood Bowl is a tabletop minatures game that combines the gritty fantasy of Warhammer with the gritty violence of American football. It’s a fun game, and it has all the potential to be a fun app on the iPad. And it is … sort of. Blood Bowl by Focus Home Interactive is a faithful recreation…(Read the full article)

A Dark Room Review: Satisfaction Awaits those Who Get Drawn in by this Excellent Text Adventure

 
 
 
 
 

“Awake. Head throbbing. Vision blurry. Come light the fire.” That’s the bleak message that awaits you upon first launch of A Dark Room, and if you’re as skeptical as I was about an iOS text-adventure game, you’ll just have to believe that the hours you’re about to pour into this game will pay off on…(Read the full article)

Modern Combat 5 Review: Gameloft Delivers Another Solid Entry

 
 
 
 
 

Modern Combat 5: Blackout feels like a return to form for Gameloft’s popular FPS shooter. The franchise jumped the shark a bit with the IAP-laden MC4, but MC5 manages to shake off that misstep and deliver a solid FPS experience. The action in the MC games has always been CoD, more or less, and nothing…(Read the full article)

Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon Review: Amusing Movie Tie-In

 
 
 
 
 

Another Marvel movie is imminent, and so Marvel has released another game app. This one is Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon, based on the upcoming GotG movie. Thankfully, it’s not another Gameloft should-have-been-freemium game, but instead a self-contained action battler. It’s an amusing game with a lot of content but a few notable…(Read the full article)

Hitman GO Review: Agent 47 Goes Mobile Board Game, Doesn’t Miss a Beat

 
 
 
 
 

This has got to be a board game… If you’re anything like me, that probably wouldn’t be your first thought when faced with the challenge of bringing a tense, strategic, action-packed game like Hitman to the iOS platform. Thankfully, developer Square Enix thinks differently, and a board game is exactly where they went with the…(Read the full article)

Minecraft 0.9 for iOS Review: Big Expansion Bring the Game to a New Level

 
 
 
 
 

Back in 2011, Minecraft: Pocket Edition released. The game was essentially a beta, albeit a $6.99 beta with the promise that the game would eventually reach some sort of parity with its PC brethren. Now, three years later, Mojang has come close to reaching that promise. Thursday’s Version 0.9 update to Minecraft PE is an…(Read the full article)

Monster Hunter Freedom Unite iOS Review: Stalking Dangerous Game with Your iOS Device

 
 
 
 
 

Capcom has done something incredible, folks: they’ve ported Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, their popular portable MH title, to iOS. And more importantly, they’ve done it successfully. Monster Hunter Freedom Unite (MHFU) is a big game in terms of price, in terms of filesize, and in terms of crunchy gaming goodness. iOS gamers should pick it up…(Read the full article)

World of Tanks Blitz Review: A Work In Progress

 
 
 
 
 

The Wargaming.Net “World of” MMOs are pretty popular, and with good reason. They offer quick-to-learn bursts of combat gaming that also offer depth of play for those so inclined. Now, they’ve brought a version of their most popular game to iOS with World of Tanks Blitz. It’s an impressive technical port, though it suffers from…(Read the full article)

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Universe in Peril Review: The LEGO Formula Worn Thin

 
 
 
 
 

I dearly love the Traveler’s Tales LEGO games. From Harry Potter to Star Wars to Pirates of the Caribbean, somehow Tt has always managed to take their formula of exploration, building, puzzle-solving, and breaking things and make it new and interesting to me again and again. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Universe in Peril, however, is the…(Read the full article)
