Am working on a full review of this quirky and unique new platformer from Paralline just released called Green Rage. If you have experienced the platform genre in the past, and think you have seen it all, you haven't and will want to grab this one ($1.99)! You mostly scurry along through twisted and varied obstacles, jump and evade baddies, and shoot stuff! Have to warn that it's version 1.0, and I had some issues with my older devices. The dev is working on those, but if you have a newer iPhone/iPad device running iOS 5.0 or later, shouldn't be a problem. Get it at the link above for iPad or here for iPhone...
Looking for a naval strategy game that gives you granular control of the individual weapons on a fleet of battleships? Today is your lucky day! Battle Fleet, formerly at $4.99 and highly rated in the iTunes store, has been reduced to $1.99 for a limited time. Features include multiple gameplay modes, awesome weapon upgrades, vintage battles and much more... Check it out in the App store, but don't wait. The sale is only good for this weekend.
I attended the CES Preview in New York City this summer and got to see a cool merging of app and board games, thanks to iPieces from Pressman Toy Corp. They offer a wide variety of physical game pieces that interact with their free iPad apps.
In general I'm a big fan of 10 tons and the games they release. At first I wasn't quite sure if I was going to like Swingworm, because it just didn't seem to have the same polish as the other games I was used to from this company. It turns out I was wrong about that for the most part. Swingworm is actually a rather interesting game with a unique concept, cute artwork and a pleasing soundtrack. Unfortunately it suffers from one significant flaw - terrible controls. They haven't deterred me from playing the game yet, but they sure can make it frustrating.
Hello, Cappuccino is a restaurant management game where you are the manager of a new cafe and you have to grow your business so it becomes the most successful cafe in the world. Restaurant management games are nothing new, especially when it comes to playing on mobile devices, but this one does an excellent job at taking the best aspects of all the other games and combining them into this fun app.
If I had to speculate about what kind of twisted game the little girl from Finding Nemo might dream up to play with her fish, this would probably be it. If you have any objections to animal cruelty, even if it’s only electronic, you might not appreciate this game. Along the way poor Yello will get spiked, frozen, torched and all around beaten up, even though ultimately you’re “kindly” returning him to his bowl. The rest of you that can deal with that should actually get a kick out of this game. “Stretch and launch” physics games have become a dime a dozen on the App Store, but ones like Saving Yello still manage to make the genre fun.
This is arguably one of my all-time favorite games, and one that I play literally every (I do not exaggerate) chance I get. If you like combat shooters, you have to get this game, load it up on your devices (all of them), and immerse yourself in the magical combat bliss that is Trigger Fist!! You will not get bored, and you will not want to stop playing. Every sacred goat you snare and protect with your life; every hard-won upgrade and unlock; every perfectly laid ambush you and your team execute will keep you coming back again and again! Do yourself a big favor, and get it NOW, just updated for latest iPhone and iPod touch versions, for ONLY 99 cents... for a limited time I'm sure.
Time for my game reviews of some of the latest and best newcomers to the App Store! We have a whole slew of new games with more on the way, so let’s take a minute to recap what we have so far. These are a few of my favorites of the new crop of games that have popped up in the App Store! This week's reviews include the smash-hit Apocalypse Max as well as new endless runners, Zaxxon Escape and Amazing Runner.
I know it's possible to have more than one really good game in a given genre but as far as hidden object games on the iPad are concerned The Cursed Heart has set an extremely high bar that's going to be hard to reach let alone beat. Tales From The Dragon Mountain doesn't even come close in that regards, and in a way it's unfortunate that I chose this one as my next hidden object game to play. On the other hand, it actually does a couple things really well, and in the end manages to suck you in until the final battle with Strix. You just have to look past a few things like aging graphics, relatively short play time and overly simple mini-games.
The best iPad games, reviews, and free iPad games are always hard to find, especially when you don't know where to start. Tons of reviews on 'the game that must be played' are written right here on this page. We are constantly looking for ways to improve and the article on the NBA 2K12, is just one example of what we do.
Here is a brief description of the article: “In iOS world, there’s an App for everything, and everything has an App. Until recently, the only exclusion was that of a true NBA game. Well thanks to NBA 2K12, by 2K Sports, throwback fans of “The Hick from French Lick” and his more modern counterpart of “The Candy Man” now have their favorite teams and players in reach of both thumbs. This is 2K sports first edition (in iOS format) for this #1 selling basketball game. Did they do right by iOS users? In short, “Yea baby”, they did.”
We try and keep the articles lively and informative. Although not all of them are based on sports. Skillz is one example that has become one of the most addictive and an overall fun game that has recently hit the market. The concept matches many other popular music games that test your rhythm, tap speed, and ability to rock the turn tables. It’s similar to Guitar Hero and Rock Band, but much more difficult which makes it appealing.
Another key point in choosing the best iPad games are the graphics. Shadowgun is a new game that is pressing the boundaries of the new graphic cards. The linked article even has a video for you to see what it actually looks like. It's a first person shooter that guides the gamer through an intense story line out in space.
All reviews, like the ones linked above, are the best iPad games that we can find.
