Double Dragon

03-11-2011

The original Double Dragon, the game that started it all, is now available on the Wii U and 3DS eShop. I don't know if it still holds up. I can tell you the movie starring Iron Chef America's Chairman does not. I can bet the cartoon doesn't, either. But, in the words of my uncle: that music is still balling. I've looped the trailer a few times already just listening to it.

Everyone's favorite feminist Anita Sarkeesian is back and this time with a new sub-series of Tropes vs Women in Gaming called Positive Female Characters. In the debut episode Anita takes a look at the main character fro...

Death Rally

04-06-2011

Ahhh Death Rally, what memories you have given me back in the day. The old Remedy logo, the Apogee splash screen, the fact that it was basically Micro Machines with guns; what wasn't there to like? Now, almost 15 years after ...

Three Trees

04-08-2011

Here's a little indie game that caught my eye the other day. It was made in 11 hours during the '360 iDev GameJam' and later found its way to Kongregate and the Apple app store. As cheap little iOS games go, Three Trees is on...

Burn it All

04-28-2011

Burn it All is quite a departure from Pastagames' previous game Pix'n Love Rush. Rather than creating another retro-themed platformer, the developer turned towards a creative take on tackling a puzzle game.And creative is really the key word here, because Burn it All ranks up there with the most creativily designed puzzle games on the App Store.

Jetpack Joyride

09-01-2011

Say what you will about mobile games in general, but a whole heap of developers are doing the platform right. One of the good guys is Halfbrick, who has contiuously updated Jetpack Joyride for nearly three years now with...

VidRhythm

09-08-2011

VidRhythm is a silly little iOS thing that's a lot of fun to play with. I created the above corgi music video with it. I've already recommended it to you, but I'm giving you another push now as it's free today. Harmonix...

The Dark Meadow

10-10-2011

If you were interested in The Dark Meadow but felt its original asking price was a bit too steep, you've got no excuse now. Phosphor Games' darkly humorous slash 'em up is now a measly dollar on iTunes, so if you've got a buc...

Bug Princess

Cave is celebrating three years of selling its wares on mobile platforms by slashing prices on a number of its shooters until April 14. It's largely the same sale we see from them every few months, but there's one notabl...

Curio

01-23-2012

Last month, I reviewed an auto-scrolling runner game for the iPhone called Curio. I wasn't too kind with my judgment, much to the disappointment of the title's main developer Rube Rubenstein. At the end of the day, though, th...

Home Sheep Home: a Little Epic

02-21-2012

To say that Aardman Animations is a bit of a British institution would be an understatement; the characters Wallace and Gromit have starred in some of the best animated films of the last two decades. Outside of the Telltale e...

The Act

07-20-2012

I think I may be autistic. Or something. But, I’m not alone in having this thought. Paranoid self-diagnosing is a habit that our ADHD generation can’t kick any sooner than the meds we’re on. Very few of us...

Horn

Phosphor Games Studio and Zynga have put out a "free" version of Horn, the fairly ambitious action-adventure game for mobile devices. That can be downloaded from the App Store right now, offering the Prologue from the main ca...

Jordan Mechner's The Last Express, a game set on the Orient Express one day before World War I kicks off, has been re-released on Steam as a special Gold Edition, adding new features and improvements to the adventure tit...

Borderlands Legends

11-01-2012

While many longtime game fans sneer at mobile gaming, I've always tried to keep an open mind about it. Done right, a touch-based game is perfectly valid as a form of interactive entertainment, and while there are plenty of ba...

Final Fantasy All the Bravest

01-13-2013

Final Fantasy: All the Bravest may well be the sleaziest, scummiest exploitation of a beloved videogame franchise this side of bootlegged Pikachu dolls. The "game" exists solely to leech cash from the "player," but Square Eni...

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...

Edge of Twilight: Athyr Above

I've been looking forward to Edge of Twilight for years. Following the game from its early promises, through to its legal troubles with original publisher Southpeak, its worrisome postponement, and eventual return to the publ...

Badland

Badland is still one of my favorite iOS games to date, and it looks like it's coming to the Wii U eShop, Xbox One, Vita, PC, PS3, and PS4. Developer Frogmind Games is crafting a new Game of the Year version for the cons...

Go Home Dinosaurs!

06-08-2013

Go Home Dinosaurs! is a game that will draw immediate comparisons to Plants vs. Zombies. From its cutesy art style, to its carefully constructed tower defense-based gameplay, much of this iPad experience will recall hours pla...

The Drowning

08-03-2013

First-person shooters on the mobile market are pretty hit or miss. When they don't follow an on-rails scheme, it can be pretty hard to get a solid dual virtual sticks system in place, and before long, users are pining for a r...

Kid Tripp

Nostalgia for the sake of it can often set people up for disappointment. While retro visuals and old-school gameplay can be an easy way into the heart of many gamers, you need a solid, working foundation to back it up, otherw...

Sky Tourist

08-06-2013

Sometimes, you'll come across a game that has no business on a mobile device, utilizing a shoe-horned control scheme that was seemingly crammed into somewhere it didn't belong. Even still, it's not hard to find a game that tr...

Dropchord

08-08-2013

It's not hard to be mesmerized by Dropchord's art style. It's equal parts psychedelic and vibrant, and with the combination of an arrangement of electronic music, there's a lot of room for potential here -- especially when Double Fine is involved. But with Dropchord, a focus on style is exactly what you're getting, with a distinct lack of gameplay variety to back it up.

Mikey Hooks

It's no secret that one of my favorite iOS games of all time is RocketCat Games' Hook Champ. It perfectly captures the concept of a touchscreen control scheme, by giving you the simple ability to grab onto pretty much anywher...
