Some games get a mobile port where the touch interface doesn't really add anything. Other games actually benefit from the tension of having to use multiple touch controls simultaneously where the effect is enhanced compared t...


 

Xbox Live Indie title Nyan Cat Adventure is now available for iOS. A free version gives you the basic "Party" mode and the traditional Nyan Cat to play with, while the $0.99 version gives you more Nyans and more modes. I gave it a spin to see what has changed from 21st Street Games' XBLIG version, and to see whether or not it still induces seizures on the smaller screen real estate.

InterWave Studios' implementation of RTS gameplay in their multiplayer FPS Nuclear Dawn has made it quite attractive to fans of both genres. The very idea of building structures, defenses and issuing commands to other pl...


 

What do you do when you're a 17-year-old RTS player who is tired of all the games out there? You make your own, of course. You just jump on the Internet and gather together a network of fans to help you make a videogame, and ...


 

It may not be as enthralling (or wacky) as a cat cafe timeshare, but Funktronic Labs has something it wants to sell me.  You see, these two guys heard I was wandering around GDC last week with a satchel full of money, j...


 

Here's a trailer for Not the Robots, a stealth game where you control a robot who must eat the furniture in a procedurally generated office building. The furniture you're compelled to eat also serves as the environmental cov...


 

Let the headline swirl in your head a bit, then come back. Indie studio Stabyourself.net has a knack for recreating classic 80s games pixel for pixel but with the application of modern physics for a wild new take on an old f...


 

In the not-so-golden era of tiered pre-order pricing shenanigans, shady downloadable content marketing, and other distasteful practices, it makes one wonder: whatever happened to the beloved demo build? Ap...


 

During my time with Nosgoth I found it to be a middling Legacy of Kain game, but a decent arena romp. More gamers are going to get the chance to check it out starting January 21, since that's when the open beta star...


 

That intro! Northern Shadow is a first-person role-playing game in which you rebuild a lost kingdom, literally, and then go out on adventures while a steward keeps everything running smoothly back home. It's also being made ...


 

Following its work for Q-Games on PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate and PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate, Double Eleven is now co-developing Nom Nom Galaxy for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. Nom Nom Galaxy is as adorable as it is difficult t...

The derelict building was a sanctuary, a place to gather supplies and take shelter from the horrors of the outside world. I moved from one chamber to the next, anxiously investigating the structure, sighing in relief upon cle...


 

Can I just say, first of all, if you show me a toucan in a game, I want to ride that toucan. Players might be as frustrated as ever that Roman centurions are riding mechs and tropical birds while they spend time eating their ...


 

Aside from videogames, music is my other big passion in life, whether it's just listening to it, going to gigs or reading about various bands or periods in music history. So when I got a message from the developers of No Wave...


 

It pained me to come down hard on No Time To Explain back in my review last year, but some design issues and bugs left me no choice. The silly time-traveling platformer has since been Greenlit on Steam, and released -- it's ...


 

School, right? We've all been there. One day you're studying for tests and gossiping with friends, the next day you and the entire student population of your school have been turned into pineapples. I hate it when that happe...

No More Heroes returns to your life as a free-to-play social mobile game. Something tells me that the unique blend of F2P, social gaming, and the mobile market isn't having NMH lovers jumping for joy. In fact it seems perfect...


 

When No More Heroes was first released on the Wii back in 2008, I'd never played anything quite like it, and that was a good thing. In fact, Anthony Burch and I thought it was a great thing, and plenty of other gamers seemed ...
