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…)
One of the things I really love about gaming on the iPad is that there’s such a wide variety of games to play. Whether it’s the visually striking and hard edged Infinity Blade series, or the incredibly simple, yet addicting Doodle Jump, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
Personally, I love all types of games, but I really enjoy ones that are fun and don’t take themselves too seriously. And if there’s one game that falls perfectly into that category, it’s Granny Smith.Let’s find out more after the jump. (more…)
Rayman: Jungle Run is exquisite. It’s the very definition of what a platforming game on iOS should be: buckets of fun, gorgeous to look at, and fast-paced.
I’m a bit of a stickler for iOS gaming. It’s tough to impress me. The concept has to be one of those moments where I wonder why I never thought of it and developed it myself. It has to be beyond gorgeous (Infinity Blade II and its predecessor obviously blew me away), but the visuals have to suit the purpose. It has to be easy enough that anybody can learn it, but hard enough that a hardcore gamer could really get into it. Rayman has all of those things in spades.
Though the Olympics have been over for quite some time now, the excitement from the games still lingers in the air. Seriously — it’s not everyday that people from across the globe can come together for competition. So when it does happen, it can’t not be exciting.
When the Olympics were about to begin, Chillingo launched their game Flick Champions: World Edition so everyone can join in on the fun. Being the Olympic version of their game Flick Champions, it is safe to assume that there are tons of great sporting events and new features inside. But does it take home the gold? Find out after the jump. (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.
This week’s roundup of games brings you a runner game with futuristic graphics, a combat game with a royal rebel for a hero, an alien that’s simply run out of fuel, a sequel (of sorts) to Angry Birds, and a completely addictive puzzler involving a popular pastime — doodling.
Hit the jump and we’ll take a look. (more…)
At first mention of Halfbrick, the first app that many of us think of is Fruit Ninja. It makes sense — Fruit Ninja was the developer’s first smash game, but its presence somewhat overshadows the existence of their other amazing iOS games.
One of these overshadowed games is possibly one of my favorite games of all time. The app, Jetpack Joyride, features Halfbrick’s flagship character Barry Steakfries as you go on a fun-filled journey through a science lab. Read on to find out why Jetpack Joyride is among my favorites after the break.
We’ve had a lot of stuff going on this week, and we’re glad you stuck around to see it all happen. But just in case you missed something this week, here’s a list of all of the apps we’ve covered this week, plus the extra goodies.

Every so often I get the urge to play an older game on my iPad. These games are usually at least a year old, likely discontinued by their developers or forgotten about entirely. Why do I do this? Because not only are the games cheap, but they can be quite fun.
After getting hooked on The Simpsons: Tapped Out, I decided to look for another cartoon themed game, and that’s when I found Family Guy Time Warped HD. Last updated in January of 2011, this game is pre-Retina display, and doesn’t take advantage of any of the strengths found in the new iPad. But is it still fun to play? Let’s find out after the jump.
