The Dark Night...

I was going to write an enthusiastic review of the new iOS game The Dark Knight Rises. I'll share that with you at another time.

 

In light of the recent theater massacre, I'd like to offer a moment of virtual silence, in a forum usually devoted to words. My heart extends towards all of you affected by the recent events in Colorado, and I offer my prayers to the families of everyone involved. May eveyone find solace, may everyone find peace.

 



Review: Teething by William Robinson

image

Retro seems to be a popular thing on the iOS platform, and Teething does a great job of personifying that mentality.  Between the pixilated graphics, bouncy chip tunes and simple game play I feel like I’m delving into a first generation NES game or maybe even an LED marvel with supped up aesthetics.  Either way it’s an amusing game to play, at least for a while.  I’m just afraid that without much fluff it won’t have any staying power.

AppGear has thrown the gaming industry a loop, by combining the increasingly popular touchscreen interface with real world, physical elements for a whole new form of hands-on gameplay. This shouldn't be a surprise, as AppGear is part of WowWee, the people who brought robotics to the toy box.



Bubble Grubble App Review

image

A good majority of app downloads are in the form of mobile games. These games come in many forms, but the favorite category of games is physics based games, with puzzles to solve in free time. Bubble Grubble fits the description of a perfect game to play whenever you’re bored or when you have a little extra time on your hands. It’s one of those games that can keep you entertained for as long as you need it to, keeping your mind trying to figure out the next puzzle. Bubble Grubble is a simple looking game, but it takes thought to feed those birds.



Space Mathematics App Review

image

In elementary school, children seem to have the hardest time with multiplication and division, because it is totally new to them. Space Mathematics: Multiplication and Division gives children a fun and easy way to learn these new math techniques without all of the confusion that they can get with a pencil on paper. After all, the best way to teach children new things is to find a way that they can relate to and enjoy, which you can find by using Space Mathematics. It’s a creative way to help kids learn the things they’ll need for the rest of their lives.



Bunny Run Game Review for iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch

image

Bunny Run is a free application that allows you to play as a bunny and avoid getting smashed by vehicles. Whether you’re crossing the road or crossing train tracks, you’ll want to be careful and avoid being dinner for scavengers. Bunny Run is an arcade romp that’s sure to keep you entertained when you have some extra downtime.

Bunny Run is a run and dodge type application that promises to take the run and dodge type applications to a whole new level. It can be related to the old school game Frogger. You were constantly in a rush and trying to not get squished by traffic. Well unlike Frogger, Bunny Run has unique dynamics, amazing graphics and endless gameplay to keep you occupied.



Review: Voroflow by Abstratum

image

Someone once I asked me how I pick games to review, and obviously without being able to play them there’s a lot of trust in screen shots and descriptions, whether from the developers themselves or from forums and other such public avenues.  Once I finally get my hands on a game the focus then becomes the fun factor.  However, I also try to focus on games that are unusual in a positive way, because these are the ones that tend to become classics once people stop overlooking them.  Voroflow definitely falls into the “unusual” category, and as a match 3 lover I’m glad the developer was kind enough to bring it to my attention.



Best iPhone Games | iPhone Life Magazine

When searching for the best iPhone games, you can get lost in companies propaganda.  Articles like Top Ten FavoriteiPhone Games, can help to alleviate the stress.  The following snippets from articles can help you to decide what kind of game is better suited for you.

"Stinger Games' newly launched Stinger FoosballLeague takes a game that's already a step removed from reality into a truly virtual environment - topping as one of the best iPhone games.  Foosball, of course, is the table version of football or soccer.  With Stinger Foosball League, the field that was crammed into a table in a pub is now in your iOS device.  The premise sounds okay, but the execution is way cooler than it sounds.  That's because Stinger Foosball League is actually, well, cooler than actual foosball.  First of all, the 3D graphics and game physics are right on, putting this game at the forefront of console-style graphics on iOS.  Second of all, the view when playing real life foosball is… usually not that awesome. I'm sure there are people with foosball tables that are tricked out, but for most of us, they're usually a dingy affair.  But Stinger Foosball League hasn't been sitting in your uncle's basement for the past forty years.  Kick-ass flying cameras show off how much action there really is in a game known for being low-tech. And just to make it even more trippy, the ball leaves behind a golden light tail, kind of a comet-effect."

"The Universe of SPIRIT FORCE was inspired from the Japanese Samurai-era.  Discover an epic story giving you a social experience where players fight with monsters and collect Spirit Cards in order to save the world.  It places a core emphasis on player vs. player combat.  The player begins his journey as a member of the SPIRIT FORCE.  Battle with other players or clear the mission to get great treasure and rare card. Use crafting skills with the collected treasures in order to summon new Spirits.  Players can team up with friends and cooperate each other to fight against boss, unlock new rewards and new stages.  The most immersive and massively multiplayer online card game ever!"

Both of the previous two articles are on specific games, but perhaps you want a more comprehensive look on several games... The Free iPhone Games To Kick Off Your Summer articleis what you are looking for.
