It was only a matter of time until iOS devices got their very own roller coaster management game. There may not yet be an iOS version of Roller Coaster Tycoon, but now we've got the next best thing: Coaster Crazy, a new free iOS game from Frontier Developments, the studio behind RollerCoaster Tycoon 3.
Minutes after booting up Forever Lost, I felt like I'd gone back in time. Here my protagonist was, waking up in what appeared to be a mental asylum, with no memory of who he (or she) was or how he (or she) got there. Single screens. A camera. Sliding-tile puzzles. Weird writing on the wall. A journal. You may not have…
I'm not sure why such a thing as this exists, but it does. Justin Bieber—yes, that Justin Bieber, beloved of 5th-grade girls nationwide—is a playable character in NBA 2K13. YouTube user DallasCowboys94Ware has done the world the favor of putting together this saga of Bieber's trials and tribulations on the court,…
Unfortunately, this is not one of those App of the Day writeups where the selection is meritorious and the title is an honor. I'm here to dispense consumer advice about NFL Pro 2013, which provides a lot of enticement given the fact it's free and it has NFL licensing. My advice is to walk around NFL Pro 2013 like it…
Bartenders get all the good stories. People often go to bars simply to talk—we need a drink sometimes, to get away from it all, and we hope to find a bartender who will listen long enough to let us get it off our chest.
Brothers Colin and Connor McGuire wanted a Left 4 Dead movie... so they made one.
We've seen how Epic's Unreal Engine 3 can be used to create dark, gritty and realistic games like The Dark Meadow, Horn and Infinity Blade. Bit Monster's Lili takes the powerful mobile game developing toolset in an entirely new direction, resulting in a whimsically magical experience that easily earns a spot among our …
Amusement parks: they should be fun, right? Cute, quirky, maybe scary in all the right ways, but ultimately, amusing.
I'm not generally a big fan of tilt-control in my mobile games. Over the past few years only one mobile game that used the accelerometer as its primary means of control has really grabbed me, and that's One Man Left's Tilt to Live. 2K Play's GridBlock makes it two.
Microsoft Studios might be calling it Crimson Dragon: Side Story, but this incredibly deep and stylish shooter for the Windows Phone 7 is pure 2D Panzer Dragoon.
Infinity Blade. Horn. The Dark Meadow. Developers are releasing amazing Unreal Engine 3-powered mobile games with such regularity these days that I was growing a little tired of talking about them. Then came Gameloft's first Unreal Engine 3 game, Wild Blood.
No no wait, it's a good kind of brain-tearing!
What the hell did I just watch, you ask? Why, the most adorable squees of delight you've ever heard, I respond!
On the one hand, it seems a bit ridiculous. Who needs a game embedded in their walk light? Is the humble button not good enough anymore? Whatever happened to just waiting patiently for the light to turn?
The YouTube user who made the Dishonored "film" trailer earlier this summer has been busy. This one's for DayZ, and it looks quite good. (Although I'd have to skip it; horror movies and I just do not get along.)
The premiere trailer for BioShock Infinite was such a tease. A beautiful new environment, a mysterious and solemn-looking new character, and lots and lots of propaganda.
And so here we are, observing the fall of innocent, impressionable minds (ha, Mega64) seduced by Fallout's violence and thievery.
Okay, it's not a full range of mage powers. It's not the Force. It's not telekinesis. In fact, it's a fairly limited setup with only one purpose, at the moment.
By far my favorite aspect of Fart Cat!, a fun and utterly deranged iOS game that released Wednesday, comes when you finish a level. A foghorn blares, the gassy kitty smiles and purrs, the screen fills with a stinky cloud and the game tells you, very proudly, "ROOM CLEARED."
You might have to wait for part 2 to see what this animator's vision on who would win this fight is, but I'm leaning towards the witch. Everyone knows once the witch has you down, there's no getting back up. You can't even fight from under her!
