Bouncing, a rather straightforward knock-out puzzle game from JRSoftWorx, confounded me for a solid 30 minutes until I realized the problem wasn't the game, it was me.
FlickBuddies has a cheeky name that resembles another word if you glance at it quickly. The game does provide good, clean fun, though it still is a casual encounter.
Who do we the people of the 21st century fear? In real life, it's the terrorists. In movies and TV, it's zombies. The combination of the two should be the perfect bad guy of our modern era.
Live Poker by Zynga, also known as Live Poker By The Guys Who Made Farmville, is hoping to be the world's biggest "social casino". I'm afraid it may be succeeding.
Porting a turn-based role-playing game to the iPhone is simple. Nailing the controls on a classic action RPG like Secret of Mana is another thing entirely. How did Square Enix do?
Grimm is a new iPhone game that has me wondering why I've never played a video game rendered in the aesthetic of the great, spooky aesthetic of legendary illustrator Edward Gorey before. Thank goodness I finally did, for one dollar.
If you missed out on The Game Atelier's fur-flinging shooter Flying Hamster when it came out as a PSP mini, the iPhone brings you closer to the heroic tale of beer, bees and bullets than ever before.
Locked in a research laboratory at the bottom of the sea, an alien lifeform breaks from its captivity and mounts an escape. That's the premise of Perfect Cell by Mobigame, our iGame of the Day.
When I misheard a friend's iPhone game recommendation, I wound up accidentally buying Colorblind. Today, Kotaku's iGame of the Day is the game my friend was actually recommending: Colorbind.
I ask my friend to recommend me an iPhone game. He tells me that Colorbind is interesting, maybe excellent. I nod. I go to iTunes. I download Colorblind. I think it's great. I compliment my friend's good taste. Wait. Colorbind?
There's a difference between dead and lifeless, as this iPhone port of Dead Rising unfortunately demonstrates.
On sale right now for just four bucks, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is the iPhone game I'm spending the most time playing these days.
Consider the bar upped.
I was a big fan of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light when it came to consoles and, it turns out, I'm just as big a fan of the iPhone version.
You'd think a game inspired by a Sony PSP ad — an ad that implied an iPhone game called Lame Castle would suck — would be a quick cash-in. You'd think that, but you'd be wrong.
Keeping a dozen cranky infants happy hardly sounds like a fun time in real life; on the iPhone, it's the premise of Dirty Diapers, a fast-twitch puzzler just released on the App Store.
We've got two giant-killer-worm games for you to consider today, each available cheap for an iPhone/iPod/iPad. Death Worm is based on the 2007 original of the same name. Super Mega Worm Vs. Santa is a newer elf-slaying take. Decisions, decisions.
I've always said that the iPad would be a great solution for bringing board games to the digital era, Risk: The Official Game HD proves it.
