Review: Edge of Twilight: Athyr Above photo
Review: Edge of Twilight: Athyr Above
by Jim Sterling

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 public eye, it's been a compelling story for a game that's boasted a ton of potential. 

To whet our appetites while the main game continues production, developer Fuzzyeyes has released Edge of Twilight: Athyr Above, an iOS action game that gives us our first real taste of what's on offer. 

I wish I could say it's a good omen, a fortuitous start that has me excited for the eventual console launch. Unfortunately, while there's a good game clearly trying to break free of Athyr Above's constraints, it's crippled by an ineffective user interface, sluggish controls, and utterly broken platform sections. 

All I can really say now is I'm glad this wasn't the only thing all these years have led to.

Review: Final Fantasy All the Bravest photo
Review: Final Fantasy All the Bravest
by Jim Sterling

Final Fantasy is close to being the Star Wars of the videogame industry, and not in a positive way. Square Enix, the George Lucas of this particularly scenario, has done a fine job exploiting its brand to almost damaging proportions, attaching the Final Fantasy name to anything it can, regardless of quality. 

Final Fantasy All the Bravest could be seen as the culmination of that. It is to Final Fantasy what a Toys R Us shelf stocked with Jar Jar Binks dolls was to Star Wars. Only, slightly worse. 

After all, the Jar Jar Binks dolls never asked you to keep giving it money after you'd bought it.

Review: Grand Theft Auto: Vice City: 10 Year Anniversary
by Chris Carter

All this Grand Theft Auto anniversary talk makes me feel old. It feels like just yesterday I was listening to Michael Jackson, swerving around as Tommy Vercetti, and taking in the sights of Rockstar's faux-Miami setting.

I think a lot of people missed out on Vice City because it came out so soon after Grand Theft Auto III, and that's a shame. Just like Grand Theft Auto III on mobile devices before it, this new anniversary edition honors the franchise's legacy: so long as you're willing to put up with touch controls.

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!

On iOS, you've got your auto-scrolling runners, fairly straightforward affairs that require careful tapping to avoid oncoming obstacles. Decent enough in bursts, games in this genre tend to suffer from uniformity. You've als...
