For those lucky enough to have grown up playing video games since the early ’90s — and in some cases, the mid to late ’80s — traditional point-and-click adventure games were the cream of the crop when it came to high quality story-based video game experiences only available on the PC. For me, titles like Day of the Tentacle, Sam & Max Hit the Road and Full Throttle were among some of the more memorable games from days long gone. Though it’s unlikely that we will ever see new original titles at their level any time soon, it’s great knowing iOS continues to keep the genre alive in the mobile world.

When I first discovered Back to the Future Ep. 1 for the Mac, I wondered if it was going to accurately represent the awesome movie series, or if it was going to be another Back to the Future II.  Now that it’s on the iPad, has it made the transition? Let’s go back in time to find out.  (more…)

There’s no other way to put this: I’m a huge Batman fan. I love all of the Christopher Nolan films, and I can’t wait to see The Dark Knight Rises in theaters. So when I saw that there was a game available for the iPad — the appropriately named The Dark Knight Rises (or TDKR) — well I knew I had to have it.

But games like TDKR on the iPad can be tricky. The controls either work or they don’t, and it’s tough to pack those types of actions onto a touchscreen device. So does this hit the mark or will Bane win the day? Let’s find out after the jump.  (more…)
