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

If you’ve been an iPhone gamer for any decent length of time and managed to go without playing a game from Chillingo (or Clickgamer), I’m both impressed and a bit scared. For the rest of us, we know by now that they have a pretty good knack for choosing fun, light hearted puzzle / platform / physics / whatever style games, and Blobster is no exception. I’m not sure that there’s anything here that’s really new, but it’s all put together in a way that is both entertaining and fresh. As long as Chillingo keeps publishing games like this, you can expect me to be along for the ride.
I watched the promo videos for this game and decided it was something I really needed to try. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. At once this game is both intriguing and frustrating. I feel like I’m spending too much time traipsing over the same hallways over and over again, yet every time I find a journal entry or news clipping I really want to know more about what’s going on. I think this game is as much a product of its environment as anything, because I really don’t believe it would be nearly as much fun to explore if it didn’t look so good, yet it’s easy to lose a half hour or forty-five minutes wandering the hallways of Dark Meadow in the blink of an eye.
Havoc is a simple game with top down graphics. The concept is very simple; you choose one of three different monsters to play as your character. Once you choose your character and level you are onto the game play. For each level you are looking down on the monster who is walking straight down a path (Each level the path is different) and as you walk different items come towards you which you have to throw rocks at. To throw rocks you just drag your finger from your monster toward the object which you want to hit. You can pick up more rocks as they come across your path by simply tapping them. Once you reach the end of the path you’ve completed the level and you get points based on how many targets you hit and accuracy.
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!....
Keep Floating is an entertaining app that can definitely help to pass time. It’s a game that is simple enough for the kids to enjoy while the increasing difficulty makes it fun for adults as well. The game is fairly quick depending on how successful you are making it the perfect game to play while waiting, sitting around, or just for a fast fix. Regardless of the reason; it will definitely teach your reactions to be quick and precise in order to win.
Are you ready for the ultimate bubble popping experience? Forget all those games that simulate bubble wrap and prepare to fling your thing. This new game from Big Blue Bubble is odd, quirky and probably one of the most entertaining bubble related games I’ve played on my iPod Touch. The things are goofy, the power ups are cool, and the whole atmosphere just exudes addictive causal game. Unlockables take a bit of time to acquire, but that’s really my only gripe so far.
10plus Pro isn’t your typical brain game; it uses the basic features of finding and connecting numbers within a large square to equal the designated amount. It tests your mathematical knowledge in its most basic form until the difficulty levels begin to rise. The problem is that the provided numbers constantly increase, change, and you’re on a timer. So, are you prepared to ready, set, and go?
Battle games have always been a favorite for many. So, it only made sense for Aeronauts: Quake In The Sky to become a contender. This is due to the extreme movement involved along with the difficult goal of defeating the enemy in the sky. That’s right; you are a weightless firefighting war plane that is attacking the sky with raging bullets and a quick reflex dodging oncoming fire from many enemy planes. In fact, it’s all up to your plane since you are the only one fighting the enemy. Luckily; there are some tricks that can be used to finally win!
Last Temple is one of those matching games where you must drag your finger across three or more adjacent tiles of the same type to clear them. It’s actually a pretty solid implementation of such game play, and the challenges are certainly quite a challenge. However, Last Temple doesn’t really bring anything new to the genre. I remember having lots of fun playing a similar game called Azkend, and I just don’t get the same sense of addiction from Last Temple as I did from that game. If you love this type of game play (or are new to it) then Last Temple is a decent choice, but if this sub-genre of matching games has kind of warn on you, it might be better if you waited for Azkend 2.
