Attack the Light: Steven Universe

04-02-2015

Videogames based on television shows can be pretty hit or miss, but usually they miss. The same can also be said for mobile games in general. This makes something like Attack the Light, a mobile game based on the popular cart...

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

06-10-2013

Wait, you mean Watch Dogs isn't simply an extension of Assassin's Creed? I kid, I kid. It appears that Olivier Garneau, CEO of Abstergo Entertainment (as seen in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag) is actually in Watch Dogs in t...

Another World - 20th Anniversary

09-27-2011

Has it really been 20 years since I first played Another World as a mere child, tried to understand what I was supposed to do, failed, and never got beyond the first section? Apparently it has. Eric Chahi's masterpiece was re-released before as Another World - 15th Anniversary Edition, and this iOS version takes the graphical upgrades and adds touch controls, which actually work surprisingly well.

Anthill: Tactical Trail Defense

12-13-2011

It’s a bug-eat-bug world out there and victory tastes like... dead insect carcasses. This iOS game is an energetic combination of strategy defense and resource management. Unlike many mobile games that have been released recently, it will keep you entertained and addicted for a while, making the most out of your dollar.

Angry Birds Star Wars II

09-20-2013

I don't get the widespread outrage over so called "casual," simple-minded games. I can spend an afternoon plugging away at the most time-consuming and complex RPG imaginable, and if Angry Birds is thrown in every now and then, so be it. Yes, I'm reviewing an Angry Birds game. Deal with it.

Air Penguin

04-25-2011

If you want to make it to the top of the iPhone App Store, it seems that the more birds your game has, the better it will sell. That is, if the gameplay itself is engaging, addictive, and fun. Enter Air Penguin, the new #1 iPhone game on the App Store. Air Penguin certainly has a bird -- a fat penguin, no less -- but is it really that addictive and fun?

Assassin's Creed: Pirates

12-08-2013

When Black Flag was first announced, it never really hit me at how great an open-world pirate game could really be. Since so many past iterations were comfortable with walling off players in mini-sandboxes rather than le...

Ash

12-17-2010

A lot of high profile iOS games have been flooding the market recently, and while we'd love to review them all, many of them slip through the cracks. We'd also love to give each game its own dedicated review, but the nature o...

Analogue: A Hate Story

09-16-2013

Visual novels are cool games, but if there's a pet peeve I've developed with the genre lately, it's that most of them are PC-based. Visual Novels, dating sims, and the like are the perfect type of game to play on mobile and t...

Adventure Time - Legends of Ooo: Big Hollow Princess

06-20-2012

Adventure Time is a great cartoon show, one that makes having a child a lot more fun than it would be if all I had to listen to was the screeching of Fairly Odd Parents every single day. Tapping very much into the Internet ge...

AvP: Evolution

03-04-2013

When the makers of Alien vs. Predator: Evolution saw the negative press and subsequent fallout regarding Aliens: Colonial Marines, they must have laughed. I imagine them bellowing obnoxiously, roaring their gleeful approval t...

Another World

09-07-2011

The surreal platformer Another World is making its way to PS4 next week, and I couldn't be more excited. The game's 20 years old, for crying out loud, and yet it's somehow found a spot on a next-gen console so that people can...
