There's going to be a Fruit Ninja Kinect 2

A ratings board listing has outed the existence of Fruit Ninja Kinect 2. You cool with that? Fruit Ninja was one of the rare titles for Xbox 360 that made decent use of the motion-sensing device, so it makes sense that the ne...

Halfbrick reveals new puzzle game Bears vs. Art

I hope you have some insulin handy because this trailer introducing Halfbrick's new game, Bear vs. Art, is sweeter than strawberry sundae topped with candy-coated gumdrops. I have watched it four times and still giggle at ho...

Review: Colossatron: Massive World Threat photo
Review: Colossatron: Massive World Threat
by Chris Carter

In the modern era of videogames that tends to take itself seriously a bit too often, I occasionally enjoy kicking back with ridiculous, over-the-top games. Games that remind me of the '90s -- where teenage turtles and Super Sentai squads reigned supreme, and metal theme songs were commonplace while you sipped your choice Ecto Cooler-flavored Hi-C beverage.

So if I told you that Halfbrick's Colossatron featured a giant robot dragon from space, hell-bent on systematically destroying every major city in the world, while a plucky news team watched with bated breath, would you be interested?

Review: Fish Out of Water photo
Review: Fish Out of Water
by Chris Carter

Not all videogames have the same goal. Some seek to challenge the player, others, to relax them. Halfbrick usually resides somewhere comfortably in the middle, with easy-to-pick-up titles like Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride -- but this time, they're going all out relaxation.

Fish Out of Water is their newest iOS release, featuring gameplay that equates to nothing more than skipping stones across a pond as you unwind your mind. And you know what? For the most part, that's okay.

Fruit Ninja is free today on iOS photo
Fruit Ninja is free today on iOS
by Chris Carter

Odds are if you have a mobile device, you've heard of Fruit Ninja. It's pretty much perpetually in the top fifty rankings, and it even had an Xbox 360 release.

The simple concept of slicing fruit with your fingers has been copied many times, but none of them can match the original. If you somehow completely missed this fun little game, you can pick it up right now for free off iTunes for the next 24 hours (until 6:00 AM GMT Tuesday).

Other Halfbrick games will be on sale as well, including Monster Dash and Age of Zombies. You can find the full listing here, but my absolute must-have is Jetpack Joyride -- which has been free for quite sometime anyways.

Jetpack Joyride finally out on Android, and it's free!

Android owners can finally play one of the most enjoyable mobile games ever with the arrival of Halfbrick's Jetpack Joyride. Best of all, it's free! You can download the game either through Google Play or the Amazon App Store. You really have no excuse here. We gave Jetpack Joyride a 9 out of 10 in our review last year. And did I mention it's free? Because it's free. FREE!
