If Crysis Were A Kids' Cartoon, This Would Be Its Game

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.

Pixel People Was Dangerously Entertaining. Now It's Deadly.

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 jerk. » 8/14/13 5:00pm 8/14/13 5:00pm

The Stylish Totem Runner is a Worthy Savior in a Dark Time

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… » 10/26/12 11:30am 10/26/12 11:30am

Nobody Takes He-Man Seriously, And That's Why I Love His Mobile Game

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 … » 10/25/12 11:30am 10/25/12 11:30am
