Tiny Wings 2's announcement trailer is too cute

This is just too damn cute. Tiny Wings creator Andreas Illiger has just announced Tiny Wings 2 in probably the best teaser trailer ever created. Andreas uses a music box to play the theme song of Tiny Wings as the bird flies across the hand-drawn level. So cute! You won't have to wait long for the sequel as Tiny Wings 2 will be out on July 12 for the iOS. That's next week!

Zynga rips off Tiny Tower, gets called out by devs photo
Zynga rips off Tiny Tower, gets called out by devs
by Jim Sterling

Zynga appears to have given up on copying its own games over and over, and has moved on to the straightforward plagiarizing of other peoples' work. Dream Heights is Tiny Tower to the core, the only difference being Zynga's inferior artistic direction. 

Tiny Tower's developer, Nimblebit, has noticed the similarities and called out the 2,789-strong company in a wonderfully sarcastic way. 

Zynga's relatively short history already has a laundry list of legal tussles relating to intellectual property rights, seeing it on both the defense and offense. Like many successful game companies, it will protect its own rights doggedly, but has no problem shamelessly copying everybody else. Apparently that's how you get ahead. 

Stay classy, Zynga!

Review: Regular Show: Nightmare-athon photo
Review: Regular Show: Nightmare-athon
by Jim Sterling

Regular Show may very well be the best cartoon series on television right now, rivaled only by Adventure Time. Taking the "disguised adult jokes" ball from Rocko's Modern Life and running halfway around the world with it, the consistent nods to Internet culture and dalliances with dark humor make for a show that could easily have been on Adult Swim as opposed to Cartoon Network. 

For a show with so many videogame references, an interactive spin-off was inevitable. Unfortunately, while Regular Show: Nightmare-athon is a relatively painless distraction, it's certainly not an essential item in the Regular Show fan's must-have checklist.

Review: Grand Theft Auto III: 10 Year Anniversary
by Jim Sterling

We live in a privileged age indeed. Less than years ago, something like Grand Theft Auto III was amazing to behold on a home console. Its size, sense of freedom, and explosive production values were so amazing, one could scarcely believe it was running on a PlayStation 2.

Now, we can get that on our mobile phones. 

Gaming has come a ridiculously long way in the ten years since Grand Theft Auto III first released, and the fact that such a game is now available on iOS devices is nothing short of amazing.

OMG: Jetpack Joyride free on iOS devices right now!

Jetpack Joyride is free for a limited time right for the iPod, iPhone and iPad! The runner style game sees you avoiding obstacles and collecting coins through the use of a jetpack that happens to be a freaking chain gun. Seriously, Jetpack Joyride is stupidly addictive and you're a horrible stupid face if you don't even try the game. You jerks.

Review: Infinity Blade II photo
Review: Infinity Blade II
by Jim Sterling

When our future selves look back on the time mobile gaming truly earned its place in this industry, there is no doubt that Infinity Blade will be seen as the first major turning point. Its critical acclaim and commercial success, not to mention the quality of graphics and engaging gameplay, stood as the moment where more than just Angry Birds fans took notice of iOS as a legitimate gaming platform. 

Few games have really attempted to seize the momentum and continue what Infinity Blade started, so it seems only fitting that ChAIR returns a year later to remind us exactly how ambitious and downright enthralling a mobile title can be. This is Infinity Blade II -- bigger, deeper, and more ready than ever to prove that gaming on your phone isn't just for your mother.
