The Scrabble-Dabble War of the Words With Friends Extravaganza. A Closer Look at Crossword Puzzle Word Games

image

Otarine.  Latrine.  Ratline.  Taurine.  Reliant.  What do all of these words have in common (besides being seven letters long)?  Well, if you are a fan of the latest craze of crossword puzzle games, then these are all words you are going to want to commit to memory.  Most of you are probably familiar with the classic board game, Scrabble.   Up to four players can participate in a game, which starts with an assortment of lettered tiles being distributed to each player.   The tiles are each assigned a number value, which denotes the number of points you will receive for using it to form a word.  Earn point



Review: Foodies by Nano Titans

image

Foodies is a physics game that doesn’t look much like other physics games, and in a world filled with games that want to be just like Angry Birds or Cut The Rope, that’s a good thing.  It’s even got a novel control mechanic that both makes sense and more often than not works well.  There’s even a cute protagonist and an amusing story, for those of you that need either one of those things (or both).  My main issue at this point is that there is a fine line between creative and cruel, or challenging and frustrating, and Foodies likes to play on that line quite frequently, even in the lower levels.  Oh, and it would be nice to be able to turn the insulting kids off as well.



Great Games from Major Developers

4 top-notch games from Epic Games, id software, and other big game developers

When the App Store was first unveiled, the vast majority of games available were from smaller, lesser-known developers. That's not to say that those games were bad—many of them were phenomenal. For example, Mediatonic's Must.Eat.Birds ($0.99, app2.me/3095; free "Lite” version, app2.me/3099) is one of the best iPhone games available.

Well, times have changed. Apple's iOS devices are not only more varied and powerful, they're used by millions of people. All this makes the platform particularly appealing to major game developers such as Epic Games and the legendary ID Software.

Review: Samurai Tale by SteamPack

image

Samurai Tale is a simple combat game, and it had the potential to be rather interesting, especially if you’re looking for something with fighting that doesn’t have the complexities of a Street Fighter type game.  Unfortunately, there are enough little things wrong with it that the game becomes somewhat mediocre as a whole, and given the number of quality games available on the App Store, that’s not a good thing.  I would love to see some more work put into this to help it rise above its current level, because I’m one of those that really likes a casual fighter from time to time.



Ollie Punk, police car jumping, edgy skate game launches on iTunes App Store

Ollie Punk, police car jumping, edgy skate game launches on iTunes App Store

New York, NY—May 12th, 2011—In a dystopian police state where skaters are jailed,
one lone punk ollies his way to freedom. Ollie Punk is a new multitouch game for iOS
and Android devices where players control a rebellious skater that must leap over a
seemingly endless stream of oncoming police vehicles at increasingly insane speeds.
At a time when the mobile game landscape is dominated by colorful and cartoony titles
like Angry Birds, Tiny Wings and Air Penguin app developers Kaza Razat and Khalid
Mills are hoping consumers have an appetite for games with slightly edgier themes.
Ollie Punk features distressed, urban inspired graphics, bass thumping music tracks and
an unforgiving style of gameplay. "As players progress deeper into the game the vehicles
