As a self-proclaimed book nerd, I am always on the look out for mediums other than print and eBooks that carry cool literary-inspired products. iOS happens to be one of the mediums that naturally hosts tons of literary apps. And to my surprise, there are tons of developers who have developed iOS games inspired by great works of literature. Read on to find out which literature-inspired apps made the cut and are enjoyed by bookworms and non-book-lovers alike.
Archery, space, robots, futuristic societies, and one very sneaky, very Tiny Thief. You’ll find all that and more in this week’s collection of games.
And if where you live is currently experiencing a heat wave, like my city, these are just five more reasons to stay indoors. Actually, the same could be said for colder temps, too. Whatever your thermostat says — click “more” to start playing. (more…)
This week you can command a special operations force, or shoot down enemies as a Cold War fighter pilot. Looking for something a little lighter? Try flying an aircraft through the futuristic and treacherous 3-D world of Sine Mora instead, dodging neon bullets and battling diesel-punk bosses.
If it’s entertainment you want, check out the amusing — and explosive! — Kamikaze Pigs, or the humorous and cartoonish Zombies Ate My Friends. Click through to take your pick.
Ranging from the super-serious to the super-ridiculous, this week’s installment of games has you going from battle zones in World War II to a battle zone of a whole different kind — Hollywood.
Somewhere in between, you’ll also have to get into the groove while tearing around a race track, help Mickey Mouse collect as much water as possible, and run a call center. Oh believe it. Click “more” to check it all out. (more…)
This group of games has variety in spades. You’ll find a retro-inspired adventure game, a puzzler that’s reminiscent of a painter’s palette, a dark and otherworldly maze, and a MOBA (for the uninitiated, that stands for multiplayer online battle arena).
Oh, and there’s also an official tie-in with Monsters University — see if you can become the ultimate scarer by catching Archie the Scare Pig. Click “more” to catch that squealer! (more…)
We’ve got some sequels, reboots and reincarnations this week for you. Diner Dash Rush has added not only a lunch rush but also a happy hour; the mad scientists in League of Evil are back for a third time; there are some new enemies to dogfight in MetalStorm: Aces; and Barry, the Jetpack Joyrider, now has a wave rider.

Who’s ready for vikings to take over as the next big thing and replace zombies? I know I am. If you feel the same, you’ll be thrilled to know that vikings have landed in this week’s installment of iPad games. So get your helmet and your longboat oar, and then get ready: It’s going to be a very icy, but fun, journey.
There’s also a slew of battles about to take place that have nothing to do with vikings. You’ll be a modern soldier, a Knight of Pen & Paper, and a member of a futuristic elite task force called XCOM. Could there be any more going on in this week’s edition of games? Oh yeah — trains! Click “more” to get rolling.
Hollywood infiltrates this week’s group of games, which include tie-ins from the films Despicable Me and Man of Steel. And while there are nine different characters in Rail Rush, your main character is slightly reminiscent of a certain Mr. Jones, first name: Indiana.
If you’re more in the mood to turn down the action a bit, we also have a puzzler and a turn-based farm-building game. But just because they’re comparatively shorter on action doesn’t mean they aren’t just as challenging in their own ways. Click “more” to put yourself to the test. (more…)
This week’s collection of games has a cinematic feel to it, with grade-A graphics and animation, creative storylines and other highly unique and entertaining qualities.

You’ll also have the opportunity to sail the seas with some Scurvy Scallywags, aka treasuring-hunting pirates, and fill the shoes of a Runaway dodging the mafia. It’s all inside this edition of iPad games. Click through to get started. (more…)
“Eclectic” doesn’t even begin to describe these five games, which spotlight summer camp and bigfoot; the Dubai Autodrome; a boy named Manuganu who’s on the run; the bulls of Pamplona, Spain; and some very Dumb Ways to Die.
I hope you enjoy discovering what they all have — or don’t have — in common. Click “more” to start playing. (more…)
