I don’t spend a lot of time playing video games now, but when I do, it’s usually for short spurts on my iPad or iPhone (tell me you’ve never heard that one before). My favourite games on iOS are really simple and highly addictive (Letterpress, Hundreds and Rayman: Jungle Run, if you have to ask).
Recently, I’ve had the opportunity to try out a new simple and highly addictive game for both iPhone and iPad called Circles. It’s a memory-based game that tests both your physical and mental reflexes, and your scores (along with your short-term memory) can only improve while you play. Not only that, but like Letterpress, it uses Game Center for its multiplayer experience. Intrigued? Read on to find out whether or not Circles is a game worth investing in.
Most of us have seen the hilariously yet morbidly cute video called Dumb Ways to Die that went viral earlier this year. Something about those cute little cartoon characters singing and dancing to the tune of stupid decisions is just so luring. I mean, setting fire to your hair had never been that catchy before this video.
Now, that adorable video has been transformed into its own iOS game. It is your job to correct the characters’ poor decisions to save them from what would be an inevitable death. Can you survive? Find out after the break.
I’ve been looking for something to replace my go to for time wasting fun. When I’m stuck on the train, I don’t want to have to make eye contact with my fellow passengers. I’ve got my eyes fixed firmly down, glued to my iPad, like any civilized person. So that I’m not just staring at my lock screen, I need a game that’s going to hold my interest.
The story of science fiction television adventurers SG-1 was recently expanded with the release of Stargate SG-1: Unleashed. After ten years on the air, Stargate SG-1 had a large and loyal following, but fans haven’t heard much of their favorite Earth-saving team in more than a few years. I’ll find out if this new chapter in the Stargate SG-1 saga lives up to fans’ expectations and whether it has anything to offer newcomers to the franchise, too. (more…)
The premise sounds simple enough. We’re here to play golf. Get the little ball that starts on one side of the course into the little hole on the other side. And yet, with Super Stickman Golf, we see how deliciously complicated that process can become. Noodlecake Studios did a fantastic job imagining this classic game. And now they’re back again with Super Stickman Golf 2. Is it the same old story? Is it a different take on the same game? Is it worth trying? Let me try and give you a taste of this great app.
Side scrollers are a dime a dozen these days on iOS, so it takes a really polished — but extremely inventive — game to stand out. That’s no short order. But this genre has been done so well so many times (Rayman: Jungle Run comes to mind) that it’s hard to meet that goal.
That’s why I’m more than a little excited about the latest offering from Frogmind: Badland is sophisticated and artistic with a level of polish that most games would only dream of, but also simple and easy to pick up. It’s gorgeous, but understated. Read on to find out what makes this game so great. (more…)
Charlie Brown and his friends in the Peanuts comic strip and cartoons deal with some depressing stuff, such as loneliness, a lack of adult presence and a failure to kick footballs. But the gang sure has some fun in Snoopy Coaster. The endless runner is molded after Mad Coaster, another favorite produced by Chillingo, but naturally, Snoopy Coaster adds that Peanuts flair by putting Snoopy in the driver’s seat of the runaway train, with Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy and Peppermint Patty filling the rows behind him. But is this adaptation enough to define its place among the many endless runners and coaster games? Find out after the jump.
Like many people, I grew up watching The Wizard of Oz on television in all its technicolor glory. Who would have thought that almost 75 years after it was first released it would now be available to play in 3D on this high tech gadget we call an iPad, huh?
Developed by newcomer Spooky Cool Labs and licenced by Warner Bros.,The Wizard of Oz takes you on a magical adventure through Oz, following the original storyline that we all know and love, but with a slight modern-day twist. Hit the jump for a nostalgic walk down memory lane, but beware of those pesky Flying Monkeys!
