By some strange coincidence, all five of the games in today’s roundup are free (at least as of the time I write this) — which means you really have no excuse not to give them a try!
These games feature puzzles of all kinds, including murder mysteries, locked doors, a candy land and word-building points. There’s also a “Help, I can’t slow down!” driving game thrown in for good measure. Click through below to get your game on.
Before the Japanese began sending people through foam Tetris shapes via conveyor belt, there was a golden age of the game show in America. Shows like The Match Game and Family Feud were primetime hits and the trickle down effect even led to niche off-shoots like Supermarket Sweep.
There’s still a feeling of nostalgia with many gameshows, today. Be it primetime or daytime, many generations grew up with Bob Barker, Pat Sajak and Alex Trebek and while many never have punched their ticket to the live audience show in California, for a much lower price you can live vicariously through an avatar contestant on the iPad.
Today we’ve put together three classic gameshows reincarnated on the iPad: Family Feud and Friends, Jeopardy HD, and Wheel of Fortune HD. Let’s jump right in! (more…)
Happy Thursday again, fellow iPad gamers. This time around we’ve got five very different and popular games to look at, featuring scaling skyscrapers, monkeys chasing (what else?) bananas) and a raccoon who knows how to load a bubble-busting gun.
There’s also a young man determined to race his car up every hill in sight, and a collection of aliens who can’t get enough of the game hangman. Click “more” to take a look at this eclectic bunch. (more…)
The latest big screen adaption of Ian Fleming’s MI6 agent, James Bond, was released this month and it’s named Skyfall. Along with the usual action-packed story of car chases and many people being shot, there was the beautiful title song from Adele, some good acting from Daniel Craig and guests, and other things you’d expect from a 007 film. It was good, and I am glad I went to see it.
What about living the James Bond life though? Obviously you can’t do so daily, but there are always video games. Consider transporting yourself to the world of espionage and secret codes. Books can only take you so far, as can motion pictures. It’d be more fun to actually feel like you are the character. Sadly, there are no official Bond games available. There are alternatives, however, and I’d like to take a look at some of them after the break. (more…)
This new releases in this week’s roundup are a little bit military, a little bit fantasy adventure. But more importantly, they include a game that combines two of my favorite things: Jedis and some very disgruntled fowl. That’s right, the Star Wars edition of Angry Birds has arrived.
Let’s take a look. And of course, may the birds be with you as you take on the Pig Star. (more…)
This week’s roundup really does have something for everyone, including a futuristic adventure game; street racing combined with police evasion; a squadron of battle-ready aircraft at your command; gunfights in the wild wild west; and a retro-inspired puzzler.
If you’re a genre-hopping gamer like me, all five will spark your interest. Hit the jump to check them out. (more…)
Something is in the iOS game development water this week, because so many great games have just been released that it’s hard to decide what to play first.
In this roundup you’ll find a certain sword-wielding master of the universe, some zombies who’ve decided to take over Tinseltown, a group of battle bots on an intergalactic mission, a contract killer named Jack Griffin and a shape-shifting warrior. Come on, let’s take a look. (more…)
Have you heard the common expression “tongue-tied?” Well, one of the games in this week’s roundup will have you “finger-tied.” And I’ll let you try to guess what that might mean.
There are also games in which you get to save mankind, defy a planet full of squares and skateboard over anything and everything (and without the threat of possible injury, natch). Oh, and there’s also this game about a hedgehog named Sonic. Maybe you’ve heard of him? Check it all out after the jump. (more…)
This week’s roundup has you building worlds; dominating space; trying your hand at something a little like virtual origami; making your way through a mad professor’s body in creepy-crawly fashion; and reuniting some hair-happy balls with their mushrooms. Yes, you read that right.
Come on, let’s take a look. (more…)
This week’s roundup includes a few games with names that, for whatever reason, just weren’t selling me on the idea. (I’ll let you guess which ones.) But after I played them, I was reminded why you shouldn’t immediately write off an app based on that alone. Of course, I’m still sometimes guilty of judging an app by its icon, but that’s a whole other thing, right?
Get ready for a bunch of animals who like riding in trucks; rebooted monsters with a penchant for high-rises; some very badly drawn famous faces; fish who aspire to be heroic in the face of tragic kidnappings; and football players with a sense of humor. Hit the jump to check it all out.
