Pac-Man is on sale this weekend only in the Apple App Store! The Pacman iPhone app generally costs gamers $4.99, but right now it is available for $1.99.
This is a tremendous port of the original game that will make any old school arcade game fan drool. Pac-Man is a classic that I am glad is being offered to younger generations through the iPhone. In general, I am a major fan of classic games being re-done on mobile iOS devices. They are a perfect fit because most are simple and elegent, and yet tested by countless gamers through the years, which ensures a dynamite product!
Last Stand Stan is kind of like a mix between Missile Command and Asteroids. Like the latter game you have a 360 degree battle, but much like the former you fight from a fixed position, which in this case is the center of the screen. Many games that employ this format have you controlling a planet or some critter on top of a planet, but in this case you control a robot named Stan, though you are still tasked with defending a planet. I think the game has a ton of potential, but in its current incarnation there are enough drawbacks that it hasn’t reached that potential. What you end up with, then, is an average game that’s on its way to the top.

I was planning on passing this game by, because I’m not a fan of first / third person shooters. With the way everyone was raving about it, however, I figured I wouldn’t be much of a reviewer if I didn’t check it out. Turns out it was a wise decision on my part. I’m still not planning on jumping up and down for joy the next time a big FPS gets released, but this particular outing has been well worth my while. Much like Half Life for the PC, Dead Space proves that an interesting story can turn an FPS into much more than a “run and blast” experience. The horror element of the whole thing doesn’t hurt, either.
This is to announce that Infinite Dreams has slashed app prices to 99 cents (for 1 day only) in celebration of the eminent launch of Can Knockdown 2 tomorrow (Mar 1, 2011). I haven't completed a full review, but the game is well-done. Read on for the full list of ID games on sale and my mini-review below. CK2 provides an array of target types (some moving, some not). You knock them down with the appropriate finger swipe, which requires accurate direction and amplitude...
Tiny Wings has just ousted Angry Birds from top spot on the Top Paid App chart!
Released on Feb 18th(yes, just over a week ago) by hitherto unknown game developer Andreas Illiger, it has quickly gained popularity on the back of very little marketing effort. I was initially a little sceptical because the game icon wasn’t very slick.
In a quick ascension to #1, Tiny Wings took the top paid iPhone app spot away from Angry Birds last week. Tiny Wings was released within the last several weeks, and has quickly been gaining momentum since its launch! Why has this game become so popular?
Tiny Wings is a simple, elegant and completely addicting game that feeds on many similar aspects to its comepitor, it even uses birds...
