It was a joyous Halloween week of gory shooter games, which still has not ended! Dead Space
, released earlier this year, is a gore-fest of terror-inducing abominations that spring up on you from just about everywhere--easily the top spot of the genre. I've had the game for awhile, but just finally getting around to really playing it (I have a long queue, so sue me). Also in this edition is a tasty game called Dark Meadow
: a scary shooter, and a puzzle-solving adventure game all wrapped in one. Read on for my mini-reviews of both games. Eric Pankoke
has previously posted up on both...
Looking for a real scare this weekend, check out Dark Meadow for $2.99 for a limited time. One of the creepier looking games for your iPhone/iPad, and should certainly put you in the mood for some Halloween cheer, or doom ...or something. Anyway, read on for gory details about the sale... and some coming features in the game! Mwahahahahahaha!....
Definitely not another typical tower defense game, Jelly Defense is unique in both design and concept. The graphics are incredibly well conceived, bright and colorful. The sound is similarly intoxicating, but in a weird yet compelling way. I can't remember playing a TD game with this much flare. Enough with the colorful adjectives, and on to the review.
Skillz has become one of the newest addictive games on 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.
is a graphics-fest of apocolyptic scenery, monsters, and technological nightmares! The game has some genuinely fun and hair-raising tactical scenarios (some predictable enemy behavior as well). The control options work well, and the game is very responsive in all but a few situations. If you are looking for yet another uber-assault TPS game that is simply gorgeous on iPad, then I imagine you will not flinch at plunking down the 8 bucks. TPS is not necessarily my cup of tea, but ShadowGun is a blast, and it is well-done.
Looks pretty amazing (at an amazing $7.99 price), the console-quality graphics provided by the Unity game engine appear to be off the chain (yes, my outmoded way of saying it is totally beyond cool)! Also now the iTunes iPad "Game of the Week", you can grab this awesome shooter here, or read on for full PR details and video...
I've been having a ball with the iCADE
, $100 from ThinkGeek.com
though I've also seen it at Toys R Us and Best Buy. Originally conceived as an April Fools Day joke, the idea was so attractive that they had it built as a real product... something that happens with remarkable frequency!
One of my favorite picks in this year's BG issue (see my full review here), Monster Trouble HD not only an Apple pick of the week award, but now (for a limited time) FREE for the HD version, which can be snapped up quick-like here. You need 3rd or 4th gen iP device (or an iPad) and 4.2 iOS or later to enjoy it. Hurry!
There are games, and then there are "Games". Games so cool and immersive, you wish they were actually in some sidereal universe you could visit (with game cheats, unlimited shields and heavy weapons of course). When I first experienced Another World, I instantly put it in that category. From the opening action sequences that set up the very cool back-story (could be a movie), to the point you crawl out of the water on Another World - 20th Anniversary (and see that thing on the cliff watching you) you feel creeped out... Tip to new game developers: This how to create a unique and compelling adventure game.
