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)

Puffin Web Browser Review: For the Flash-loving, Speed-craving power user

 
 
 
 
 

Remember the days when smartphones were so amazing simply because they granted us access to the Internet on the go? For many of us, the advent of apps has seriously reduced the time we spend straight-up browsing on our mobile devices, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for Apple to be beaten at their…(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)

Kiwanuka Review: Tiny Teamwork Sparks Ingenious Puzzle Game

 
 
 
 
 

Since its inception, the App Store has become a place where some truly unique and interesting puzzle games have arisen. One recent example is Kiwanuka, an engaging Lemmings-esque game that offers a challenge unlike any I’ve come across lately.

Thomas Was Alone Review: Clever Idea Wrapped In Colorful Charm

 
 
 
 
 

As a concept, the idea of a cooperative puzzle game isn’t completely new. But Thomas Was Alone executes it in such a charming and memorable way that it comes off feeling completely original. It’s a singular gaming experience and I’m happy that it’s made its way onto iOS.

Godfire: Rise of Prometheus Review: Well-crafted, but Falls Just Short of its Mythically Huge Expectations

 
 
 
 
 

The days when an app could be guaranteed success by featuring some cute critters and simple gameplay may be nearing their end. If you’re Vivid Games, it’s time to think bigger. Much bigger. Perhaps that’s why the subject matter of Vivid’s most recent effort is none other than the Godfire Spark—an object said to be…(Read the full article)
