Cyto's Puzzle Adventure exocytosed onto Steam Greenlight

I have somewhat of a soft spot for games that take place in environments typically visible only under a microscope. That's probably what drew me to watch the trailer for Cyto's Puzzle Adventure, which originated on iOS but i...

Today a handful of interesting looking mobile games were released and instead of doing a bunch of posts, I figured I'd just round them all up. Well, at least the most interesting looking ones that were in our tips box today. ...

He-Man: The Most Powerful Game in the Universe trailer

Yesterday, the world spun off its axis in sheer amazement after learning of He-Man: The Most Powerful Game in the Universe. It's an iOS brawler based on the old school series, which makes my nostalgic little soul smile.  Here's a trailer for it, in which the game quite clearly takes the piss out of itself. I can respect that!

He-Man punches Skeletor's friends in new iOS brawler

Sweet nostalgia is the hook by which Chillingo and Glitchsoft hope to snatch you with He-Man, a new brawler coming universally to iOS devices. It's based on the old cartoon, you see. This means I'm going to buy it. Because I'...

E3: The Act looks delightful photo
E3: The Act looks delightful
by Steven Hansen

A lot of you may not be interested in The Act, React Entertainment’s interactive, hand-drawn comedy that will undoubtedly draw comparisons to Dragon’s Lair. But I am currently lamenting the fact that I do not own a Mac, iPod touch, or iPhone, because I desperately want to play it when it comes out later this month.

The Act puts you in control of the affable Edgar, whose life hasn’t quite put him in the position he wants to be in. Edgar works as a window washer with his younger brother, Wally, at the city hospital. Here, Edgar encounters a nurse named Sylvia, and falls for her. The game becomes a balance of trying to help Edgar keep his job, rescue his brother, and romance the woman he’s in love with.

This Could Hurt for iOS is tasty platforming masochism

On iOS, you've got your auto-scrolling runners, fairly straightforward affairs that require careful tapping to avoid oncoming obstacles. Decent enough in bursts, games in this genre tend to suffer from uniformity. You've als...

Review: The Fancy Pants Adventures (iOS) photo
Review: The Fancy Pants Adventures (iOS)
by Tony Ponce

Last April, the popular Flash platforming series The Fancy Pants Adventures received a home console installment for XBLA and PSN. For some reason, despite our hyping said game extensively, no one at Destructoid ever actually reviewed it. The people gotta know, man! The people gotta knoooooow!

Just over ten months later, the console version has been ported to iOS devices. Aside from the absence of the multiplayer modes, the two are pretty much identical. So I guess now would be as good a time as any to do a proper review, right?

Preview: Contre Jour

After making a splash at E3, what was once a fairly unknown indie iOS title attracted a ton of attention from press and gamers alike. Nominated for several handheld awards, Contre Jour is steadily approaching release. Once I got the chance to play it at EA’s Summer Games Showcase, I can honestly say that there is something quite special about this little indie game.
