Taking a break from creating big-budget console games starring striking characters with large, moist eyes like Enslaved and DMC, Ninja Theory releases a mobile brawler featuring a character with a thing for striking.
As I watched the first season of Disney XD's Max Steel, I couldn't get Crysis out of my head. Here's a crack paramilitary outfit, a guy in a suit that morphs itself to enhance his physical attributes like strength and speed, he's fighting aliens — the outfit even has the Crysis suit's cool honeycomb mesh pattern. It's …
In late January, LambdaMu Games took over every non-working waking hour of my life with Pixel People for iOS, a game about gene splicing, city-building, and desperately trying to avoid spending money (I failed on more than one occassion). It took me a month to stop playing. That's why today's massive update is a…
Dead Ahead, released last week on iTunes, is awonderful litttle endless runner-style game in which a pleasantly pixelated protagonist escapes from hordes of zombies on a motorcycle. It's got a wonderful style, mostly solid controls, and it's a heck of a lot of fun to play, but that's not what's important right now.
I love Ninja Theory. Not only was it my favorite elective in college, they make some pretty wonderful action adventure titles, filled with expressive characters, quirky humor and Dante fan hate. Now they've partnered with Chillingo for Fightback, an 80s-style action game for Android and iOS.
Have you ever played a game that just feels right—a game where the controls and challenge immediately click, making playing it an almost instinctual thing? Rock Runners is that kind of game.
I'd like to think that if I found myself surrounded on all sides by zombies I'd have the presence of mind to stuff a stick of dynamite up a chicken's ass.
A game designer is a combination of a programmer and an artist. A preacher is a philosopher and a dreamer combined. Meld a magician and a scientist and you have a wizard. This is how the world works in LambdaMu Games' Pixel People—simple, elegant and endlessly entertaining.
I'd not heard a single word about LambdaMu's Pixel People until Chillingo sent word that the game was coming soon to iOS this afternoon. Now I'm completely charmed.
The Book of Genesis tells the story of Noah and his Ark, the God-contracted vessel built to contain all the species of the world during the pressing of the holy reset button. While I'm only vaguely familiar with the tale, I'm pretty sure I would have remembered the Ark having evil chomping teeth that spit out…
Not that you can trust user reviews on iTunes, but one player of Anomaly: Korea recently praised the reverse-tower-defense game as being "one of a kind."
When every iOS game on the list for your Best Games of 2012 Sale promotion is free, it's no longer a sale — it's a giveaway, and when one of those games is Pony Trails, that's a steal.
How does one improve upon the most powerful game in the universe? By unleashing the most powerful game update in the universe, featuring Princess Adora and her magical horse.
The good news is you never hit the ground in Sky Hero. The bad news is that it's not the landing that kills you every time, it's the fall.
Only in the mobile gaming sector could a developer not only come up with an idea as convoluted as combining betting on and racing horses with Scrabble, but turn that idea into what could be the next smash-hit social word game.
Based in the UK, mobile game publisher Chillingo has no real reason to celebrate the American holiday of Thanksgiving, but if that celebration means free copies of Totem Runner and Puzzle Craft then I'm willing to play along.
Forgive me, this will sound like damnation by faint praise, but I almost didn't know what to do with myself after completing a level in Totem Runner. I can't remember the last time a new mobile game didn't use the intermission to sell me something I didn't want. Most importantly, Totem Runner is good on its own…
In late 1982 Mattel fashioned a generic fantasy barbarian with an even more generic name into a children's media goldmine. First came the toys. Then came the cartoon, with its horribly-limited animation. It got so big that in 1987 Dolph Lundgren starred in a live action Masters of the Universe movie. Glitchsoft's …
Looking for a fantastic free iPhone game? Blitz Games' Kumo Lumo is out today. You should play it. It's brilliant.
