Review: Space Bust-A-Move photo
Review: Space Bust-A-Move
by Colette Bennett

Ah, Bust-A-Move. No matter how many incarnations of the little game seem to come about, I'm always interested in playing another one and losing myself in that mindless but addictive puzzle action. Naturally, as soon as I saw that Square Enix would be distributing the latest installment in the series, Space Bust-A-Move, I was on the case and ready to check it out. And is that a story I spy?

Yes, in this version you will follow Bub and Bob's adventures as they go after the evil Develin and try to collect items called Cosmo Bubbles to save the world. Not sure what connection Cosmo Bubbles have to actually saving the world, but you don't ask those sorts of questions when you play a videogame. You have to defeat Develin, dammit!

Hit the break for more.

Review: Space Invaders: Infinity Gene photo
Review: Space Invaders: Infinity Gene
by Topher Cantler

You may have noticed that I've been anticipating Taito's Space Invaders: Infinity Gene pretty heavily since it was first announced for the iPhone. Originally released in Japan on mobile phones that aren't sold anywhere else, I thought this latest installment of one of my favorite classic franchises was one I might never get to play. Thankfully, it's available now in the US and I've finally gotten my hands on it.

Nick Chester was kind enough to hand over his iPod Touch for a while to make that possible, and while I've always been somewhat skeptical about these devices as a real gaming platform, all it would take is one great title to change my mind. Was this it? Hit the jump and find out in my full review.
