Did you ever play the original Scribblenauts game for the DS? If so, you’ll love this. If you didn’t, you’ll like it even better.
Scribblenauts: Remix is a game that allows you to conjure any object in order to complete an equally imaginative set of objectives present across a large array of well-designed levels. It operates on the premise that the sky is the limit when it comes to how you want to complete a level. Read on to see if the iOS version retains the magic found in the DS versions.
Ever since being launched in December 2009, Angry Birds has carved a name for itself in the gaming world. By combining comical graphics with addictive gameplay and chirpy idents, it’s become one of the most played and well-known games of its time. That’s a tough act to follow.
Instead of relying on that classic gameplay that we all know and love, Rovio’s taking a risk by putting out a completely different game mechanic using the anarchists of the franchise — the pigs. Is Bad Piggies a show-stopper like its predecessor, or will it be met by the incessant grunts of avian-diehards? Let’s find out. (more…)
Since being released in 2009, Wolfram Alpha has become very popular over the years. Based on the computational platform Mathematica, written by British scientist Stephen Wolfram in 1988, WolframAlpha is capable of interpreting and answering basic questions such as, “How old was FDR in 1942?” and “What is the distance between the north pole and the south pole?”
A service like this is already accessible to iPad users via the website, however, the app provides a much simpler and more convinient approach to solving all your problems. With the price drop putting it from $50 to $2, do we have a bargain on our hands? (more…)

Both of these games put a very different take on the sport we know and love. Will Jam’s arcade-style gameplay and oversizes heads trump 2K12′s aesthetics and excellent simulation? Let’s find out. (more…)
I’m a huge sports fan. I love playing, watching and involving myself in variety of sports all the time — obviously it would make sense then to have a few sports games on my iPad. A dilemma I face sometimes though, is that the market for sport games on iOS is saturated with tons of apps you could really do without. With the Olympics still a recent memory as well, there’s never been a better time to love sports.
In this list, I have been concise in selecting, in my opinion, the best of the best sport games out there for the iPad. These are the ten that offer the most full and exiting experience for the sport in question. Let’s begin. (more…)
There are many racers out there for iOS that all have their own unique mechanics. This however, is a pretty different one from the bunch. With a top-down view and arcade-style gameplay, this isn’t what you’d expect from a fully-fledged racer.
Mini Motor Racing is a fast-paced frenzy to the finish in small, chubby vehicles that scream cuteness. It has solid visuals, great gameplay and a heck of a load of fun in store. Is it good enough to oppose other similar games like Reckless Getaway? Let’s find out. (more…)
The first thing that needs to be said about this game is that it’s miles off what you’re expecting. Literally.
A new take has been put on racing for iOS in CSR Racing. It’s more of a test of rhythm than anything else, as you have no control of the direction, only the speed of the car in very brief races that will never exceed the minute mark. Is this mechanic too much of a change to appeal to any racing fan? Let’s take a look. (more…)

Marvel vs. Capcom 2 brings together legendary characters from the Marvel and Capcom franchises together in an action-packed flurry of fists and other appendages that goes beyond the word cool. Whether you’re a fan or not of either franchise, you can simply pick up and play and I guarantee that you’ll still enjoy yourself. (more…)
Many of us thought that racing games peaked in terms of performance with the previous installment of the series, Asphalt 6: Adrenaline. That’s a huge misjudgement when compared to this incredible racer. Games like Real Racing 2 and it’s predecessor have now got some serious competition graphically.
Asphalt 7: Heat is the newest instalment in the Asphalt series that has made a name for itself on the iOS platform. It has fast-paced and graphically intense gameplay that will keep you constantly at the edge of your seat. Let’s take a look further into this awesome racer. (more…)
One of the premises of Burnout is that instead of racing your opponents to the finish line, you make sure that they never get there in the first place. This is through the art of the takedown, where you smash into opponents cars to clear them from your path. Burnout Crash! operates on a similar basis, however you simply have to smash into cars and buildings to gain millions of dollars worth of damage.
Criterion’s Burnout series is one that I have much love for. I’ve put hour after hour into playing some of their incredible hits on the PS2 such as Point of Impact and Takedown. When I sat down with the app for the first time, my expectations were high. But will the app live up to the bar set by its older siblings? (more…)
