Have you ever wished you could build your very own theme park full of crazy rollercoasters with enough twists, turns and drops that made everyone on them sick to their stomach, only to come back for more? Unless you’ve been a long-time PC gamer with fond memories of Roller Coaster Tycoon, the concept of being able to do such things is more than likely pretty foreign to you. With the recent release of Coaster Crazy for the iPad and iPhone, you now have free reign to create your perfect vomit comet and let your mind run free.
Frontier Developments Ltd. also happen to be the minds behind other similar games like the Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 expansions, Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 and the highly forgettable Thrillville series, so you can say they have plenty of experience in the world of thrill rides. So just how fun is their latest endeavor with Coaster Crazy? Read on to find out. (more…)

The Epic Knight from the well-known dungeon defense game, Tiny Heroes, is back in the new running game, One Epic Knight. The tables have turned and now the Epic Knight is the one conquering the dungeon. Whether you’ve played the first game or not, what could be more exciting than a dungeon filled with loot, potions, trinkets and green jello cube monsters? Other than real treasure chests filled with loot, I can’t think of too much.
As a fan of the popular Temple Run, when I found out One Epic Knight was free I had to take it for a spin. So, how does it compare to other games in the running genre? Read on to find out! (more…)
Too often it seems like games based on movies are mediocre adaptations of a film’s plot. But, to their credit, they usually fare much better than the reverse, when movies are sourced from video games. Either way, Wreck-It Ralph sort of blurs the lines and begs the question: Which came first — the game or the movie?
The ambiguity only enhances what players get in this three-game package (soon to be four, so stay tuned). Wreck-It Ralph serves as an extension of its film, but in theory, these games come before the plot presented in the hit Disney film.
Do the individual adventures make for a cohesive and entertaining addition to the franchise? Find out after the jump. (more…)
Stealing an evil mastermind’s throne is never a good idea, especially when you’re a puny, soluble sugar cube, and it’s clear that Sugar Kid is in for a rough ride when the BulkyPix-developed puzzle game opens with the question “do you like some gore?” (which can be turned on or off according to taste.)
Happily, the game doesn’t disappoint following this auspicious start, and throughout its ninety-plus levels, Sugar Kid peppers sickeningly cute graphics with an abundance of blood and guts in a simple and repetitive but altogether fun pick-up-and-play title. Let’s find out more, shall we? (more…)
When the PlayStation 2 slim released in late 2004, I desperately wanted one. Of course, so did every other kid on the block. Those weren’t just the days of golden gaming, they were the days of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2. There was nothing like a game of getting away from the highway patrolmen in a fast car. Even if it wasn’t real, there was a certain thrill to the game. That’s just how the Need for Speed games make you feel: like you’re there, in the car, fighting for freedom of the coastal roads with your Lamborghini Murcielago. Preferably the green one.
Then, last year, the new, revamped Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit came to the iPad and iPhone. I thought it’d be the best day of my life once again. Sadly, while the game was fun, the experience wasn’t as good as the first two in the series and I completed the game within a week. But EA has returned this year with yet another reconditioned title — Need for Speed: Most Wanted. It’s on all the major consoles and iOS, so why not buy it? Well …
Let me start by saying this: I am a huge Star Wars fan. I love the movies, I love the collectibles, I love the video games. So of course when Rovio announced they were making a Star Wars themed Angry Birds game, I was all over it. I was looked at video clips and screens shots while patiently awaiting the release date. And then it came, and I quickly picked it up.
The zombie apocalypse has arrived, and yes, they want your brains. The only thing that separates you from the wrath of the hungry zombies is the span of your lawn. You need protection, and you need it quick. The solution? Plants.
In Plants vs. Zombies HD, you will have to ward off swarms upon swarms of zombies as they flood in mercilessly. However, you may survive by utilizing plants that are seemingly bred for the sole purpose of warding off zombies. Find out more about this addicting strategy game after the break. (more…)
