Apple just launched the iOS 11 public beta for the whole world to try, and holy heck, don’t get too excited yet. Obviously, your iPhone or iPad will be cooler than all your friends’ are if you’re running the new software before any of them. There will be consequences, though.
The following contest is scheduled for one fall. Making their way to the ring, weighing at least half a pound each: a bunch of smartphone docks.
The beautifully-written survival exploration game Sunless Sea came to iPad last week. It feels right at home on mobile.
Sunless Sea is coming to iPad in the spring, Failbetter Games announced today. It won’t include the Zubmariner expansion, but I’m sure there will still be plenty of ways to die.
Stop watching movies on your iPad. Stop browsing the web.
A wondrous combination of martial arts action and BioWare storytelling, Jade Empire is a classic action RPG that could really use a sequel. Perhaps today’s release of Jade Empire: Special Edition on iOS is a step in that direction. Or not.
After revealing the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, Apple is finally releasing iOS 10 for everyone with a compatible device today. Of course you’re going to want to set aside some time for playing around with the new software, but if you want to get to the newest features right away, then these are (almost) all the extra tricks…
Apple has a strained history with video games, as the company regulates what is and isn’t a “game.” It’s why Apple initially rejected Liyla And The Shadows of War, about a young Palestinian girl in Gaza, and said it “was not appropriate for the games category.” Apple has now reversed that decision.
PC gaming isn’t the only thing that has some rules that all developers should abide by. Mobile gaming has plenty of gripes with people as well, and so I believe it is time some commandments shall be written.
So you’ve got a brand spanking new iPad Pro. You’re probably going to want to take advantage of the 12.9-inch display, the four speakers, and the souped up A9x processor. We’ve made a list of the coolest, most beautiful apps you can get, whether you’re a designer or just someone who appreciates big screens.
The stunningly enduring iPhone sensation Plague Inc. may be the video game with the highest body count in the long history of the medium. I’m trying to think of another game that made me feel inadequate for laying waste to a mere 1.75 billion people.
Star Wars Uprising, the new Diablo clone sitting atop the iTunes charts, could more appropriately be titled Star Wars: Uninspiring. The game is competent. That’s about it.
It’s time folks, the splendid iPad Air is getting an older beefier sibling. It’s everything you loved about the iPads of yore, just bigger and badder. Meet the iPad Pro.
My go-to mobile game for time-filling fun used to be Drop 7. Then it was Threes. These days it’s Sage Solitaire, a new riff on solitaire from the ever-interesting developer Zach Gage. I’m making pairs, straights and flushes, often while listening to a podcast. I’m hooked!
People with iPads, here’s your new “what should I play on my next airplane flight/long car ride?” game. It’s part roguelike. It’s part tower defense. It was born on PC. It survived its port to tablets. It requires brains and reflexes. And it’s also really good.
Five bucks spent and an hour in, I’m having a very good time with Lara Croft GO, the new mobile Tomb Raider spin-off that came out a few hours ago. It’s turn-based. It’s full of tomb raiding. How about I show you? You’ll see some early levels—and a comparison to the very cool precursor Hitman GO—in my 13-minute…
Final Fantasy VII, a video game about an angry man with mommy issues, will come to iPhone and iPad tonight with the next Apple Store update, publisher Square Enix announced today.
