Today’s roundup of games proffers quite a bit of variety, which means this is how you’ll be spending your weekend: taking down some zombies (clearing the zombie problem doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon); leading an army of fieldrunners in defense of your nation; kicking field goals like an NFL pro; and putting on the most unusual golf course you’ll ever see.

Oh yeah, you’ll also be helping a bunch of critters called Linkies rid their world of toxic waste. (No, it’s not as dry as it sounds, and yes, it’s totally addictive.) Hit the jump to take a look. (more…)

Twitter is a very popular social network and up until lately, users have been able to access it using a variety of third-party clients. A month or so back, however, Twitter decided it was time to restrict the access that third-party apps have, meaning that new users and even some old ones will be dropped from certain apps. This was a disappointing move by Twitter. It could make everything better with a good update to its official apps, and that’s just what it did on September 18th. Starting with the iPad and iPhone apps, Twitter has brought an overhaul in design and functionality. The tablet app is back on top again, it seems. But is it really worth your time or should you stay loyal to your favorite third-party app? (more…)

There’s no doubt that mobile gaming on the iPad is big business. Recently, market research group NPD released a report that found that the number of mobile games have increased up to 22% over the past year. There are many reasons for the rise of mobile gaming, but those reasons vary between various user groups.

I tend to be attracted to specific types of iPad games, and while I can appreciate console-like games (e.g. Mass Effect, Assassin’s Creed) being developed for the iPad, I simply prefer sticking to games that don’t make me miss a physical controller. Instead, I play ones that are developed for touch devices, especially games that use one of the most simple control concepts of all — flicking. After the jump you’ll find of a list of ten great games that merely require you to do a bit of flicking. (more…)

With winter coming just around the corner, many of us cannot wait to hit the slopes. Skiing and snowboarding is one of the best ways to enjoy the winter snow; unfortunately, the season is short and many of us are not able to capitalize on the opportunity before it’s too late.

Thanks to Donut Games’ Rat on a Snowboard, we don’t have to wait until it’s winter to ride. This game will allow you to take on even the craziest runs. But does it shred the slopes or does it wipe out? Find out after the jump. (more…)

At this point, it takes an awful lot for an app to impress me. I’ve seen it all, and like a grizzled war veteran, it seems like nothing can phase me. But then I met Wonderputt, and things changed.

Wonderputt is like no game I’ve ever played before. Sure, it has concepts that are similar to others, but it’s just so different and beautiful that it draws you in. Not sure what I’m talking about? Let’s get down to the bottom of this after the jump. (more…)

I’m a huge sports fan. I love playing, watching and involving myself in variety of sports all the time  — obviously it would make sense then to have a few sports games on my iPad. A dilemma I face sometimes though, is that the market for sport games on iOS is saturated with tons of apps you could really do without. With the Olympics still a recent memory as well, there’s never been a better time to love sports.

In this list, I have been concise in selecting, in my opinion, the best of the best sport games out there for the iPad. These are the ten that offer the most full and exiting experience for the sport in question. Let’s begin. (more…)

I’ve always enjoyed a good match of strategy. Tower defense games are one of the best ways to devise those nefarious tactical plans on a mobile device. I remember the days when Java games dominated the mobile market, and even though the selection wasn’t always great, the only way to get a game was to pay your wireless carrier up to $10 for it. You could then play it on your Motorola RAZR or other basic phone using the wondrous keypad to conquer the world. Those were the days.

Now we’ve become too developed for such devices and have moved on to Apple’s sublime iPad. Tower defense made it to the tablet as well, in the forms of Plants vs. Zombies, Kingdom Rush and Fieldrunners. Now we have the sequel, Fieldrunners 2 for the iPad, and I’ve been playing it since launch day. Is it good? Let’s find out. (more…)
