Readers of the Discworld series always want more. If not, there wouldn’t be roughly a million billion books published about the goings on of the inhabitants of the Disc. Now the series has made the jump to iOS with Discworld: The Ankh-Morpork Map. How well does it stand up to the tower of books that precede it and can it satisfy Terry Pratchett’s most discerning fans?


If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to command your own clone army, Pixel People is just the simulation game for you especially if you’re looking for less of an army and more of a suburban town populated by industrious clones working 9 to 5, just trying to make ends meet. That’s what Pixel People gives you, with lots of humor on the side, but does the fun come thick and fast or will this sim prove to be a bit too thin on real gameplay? (more…)

Not any day will do. People, food, and the merriment of the festival days where it can occur are to be avoided at all cost. You are not allowed the comfort of a fire. But if, at midnight, you should venture out into the wilderness and follow the ancient rite of the Year Walk, glimpses of the future may be revealed to you…but at what cost?

Take a walk with me as I delve into Simogo’s newest — and most distinctive — iPad experience, and unravel some of the dark secrets you can look forward to in this superbly atmospheric game.


Most of us grew up watching superheroes on TV, and have probably even imagined being one at some point. However, the chances are that you have not yet considered what it would be like to actually manage a superhero, let alone a whole team of them!

Introducing Middle Manager of Justice, a freemium simulation game where you can do just that, recruiting and training superheroes to fight crime and save lives. Have you got what it takes to be Middle Manager? Find out after the jump!


Do you remember how much you loved those choose-your-own-adventure books when you were a kid? These stories would suck you right in, and you’d just have to discover each and every single possible ending, even if it took hours, right?

The folks at Visual Baker have created the equivalent for iOS. Underground Kingdom is a beautiful and entertaining “gamebook” for readers young and old, and features nearly two dozen different endings, animated illustrations and an interactive map that lets you chart your progress through the story. Click “more” for an overview.


I’ve been a fan of the Theme Park franchise for as long as I can remember, and spent many a day in my youth sat in front of a computer screen designing the ultimate amusement park. Happily, I’m getting a chance to re-live those halcyon years (albeit on a smaller screen) as Theme Park is back once again, but this time in freemium form on iOS.

For the uninitiated, Theme Park is a construction and management simulation game in which you create and run your very own theme park. Purchase rides, replenish stock and manage a team of staff, all while trying to keep your customers happy and make as much money as possible. Find out more after the jump. (more…)

Mushroom Wars, long a favorite download on the PlayStation 3, has made the jump to the iPad. The new version for iOS has brought with it all new maps, a fresh campaign and tournament play. A real time strategy game, Mushroom Wars borrows elements from tower defense to create an inventive and adorable game of mushroom warfare.

As a fan of the PSN game, I was wondering how well Mushroom Wars had made the switch. Read on to find out! (more…)

Ever since being launched in December 2009, Angry Birds has carved a name for itself in the gaming world. By combining comical graphics with addictive gameplay and chirpy idents, it’s become one of the most played and well-known games of its time. That’s a tough act to follow.

Instead of relying on that classic gameplay that we all know and love, Rovio’s taking a risk by putting out a completely different game mechanic using the anarchists of the franchise — the pigs. Is Bad Piggies a show-stopper like its predecessor, or will it be met by the incessant grunts of avian-diehards? Let’s find out. (more…)

The moment you see the start screen for Temple Run 2, you know something is different. It looks familiar, extremely reminiscent of the original, but with a makeover. It’s like somebody repainted your favourite bedroom and it just looks a little more polished than it did before. And that’s the sort of thing that applies to the visual overhaul that Imangi Studios has given Temple Run with the sequel.

The game retains the same premise as before. But Temple Run 2, like any great Hollywood sequel, expands on the premise with new concepts, characters and more spectacular action. It’s just an endless-runner game, but its prequel was universally hailed as the first and best. Temple Run 2 has a lot to live up to. (more…)
