That Ferris Bueller Super Bowl ad was one big troll, and I'm still feeling the sting. How dare you, Honda? And how dare YOU, Mr. Broderick!? You knew how fans would flip out, yet you went through with the commercial regardless. You are a horrible person, and I wish bad things upon you!

Then along WarGames: WOPR by Be-Rad Entertainment. Based on the classic 1983 sci-fi thriller, it's a puzzler that puts you in the role of the War Operation Plan Response supercomputer as you play a few "friendly" rounds of "Global Thermonuclear War" with characters from the film... especially Broderick's David Lightman, that pompous little turd.

Your goal is to nuke your opponent into dust by matching three or more missile symbols either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. There are some missiles with HP counters that must be destroyed in a set number of turns lest it blows up in your face. Matching other symbols grants you health refills, cash to spend on tactical commands match the health, or bonus points that grant you single-use power-ups. There's no time limit, so you can make your moves carefully, and because you can match symbols diagonally, it's super easy to rack up double-digit chains. You feel empowered, and rightfully so, since you are the f*ckin' WOPR and take sh*t from nobody!

WarGames: WOPR is available on iOS as well as Android devices for $0.99. That's a small price to pay to allow players the chance to exact revenge on a man whose laundry list of sins extends far beyond a single TV spot -- he had to answer for Inspector Gadget one of these days.

Arkanoid vs. Space Invaders should have happened years ago

I was too young to get into Space Invaders, influential as it was, but Arkanoid is my jam. Taito is working on a mobile game for iOS and Android that combines the two properties, according to Game Watch, and I'm loving the so...more

XCOM: Enemy Within on mobile could ruin my life

Every once and awhile I see something that I desperately want but know I shouldn't get because it would ruin my life. Motorcycles, home-installed espresso machines, that sort of thing. Now I can add XCOM: Enemy Within on mobi...more
