Goblin Sword Review: Retro Platforming Goodness

 
 
 
 
 

Retro gaming is big in the App Store. So many 8-bit and 16-bit retro games are out there that it’s not really a special idea anymore. But when a game isn’t just retro but nostalgic, it’s a real treat. Goblin Sword is such a game, an unrepentant 16-bit retro platformer that delivers a great experience.

Valiant Hearts (iOS) Review: A Puzzle Adventure Game With History and Heart

 
 
 
 
 

Big games are … well, big. But sometimes, it’s the small studios who take chances on unlikely ideas and make awesome games with them. One such game is Valiant Hearts: The Great War, recently released to iOS. This blend of story, style, and substance is worth playing. Go into Valiant Hearts with the intent of…(Read the full article)

Bioshock [iOS] Review: A Capable Port of a Great Game

 
 
 
 
 

Last year, 2K/2K China delivered iOS gamers the excellent XCOM: Enemy Unknown port. They’re back this year with another big console port, this time the sci-fi FPS thriller Bioshock. Like their previous effort, Bioshock is generally a strong and impressive port; unlike XCOM, however, Bioshock’s port is not without hiccups.

Pac Man Friends Review: Clunky Controls and IAPs at Premium Price

 
 
 
 
 

Pac Man has gotten a lot of mileage out of its nearly 35 year old gimmick of a round, mouthy circle concusming power pellets and being chased by colorful ghosts. This past week, Bandai Namco squeezed a little more mileage out of it with Pac Man Friends, a star-chasing puzzle game that amuses, though it…(Read the full article)

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)

Party Party Review: Share Your Moments the Hippest way possible

 
 
 
 
 

I know what you’re thinking—another photo app with filters and editing features—is there anything our iPhones need less? Party Party is an app brought to us by the women behind an apparently-super-popular blog called A Beautiful Mess, and it enters a category of the App Store that has been thoroughly played out over the last…(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)
