At first I thought Smart Words was just another scrabble clone but after reading through the scoring instructions and playing a couple games I realized it’s actually quite a bit different and has a lot of fun improvements. The scoring seemed a lot more complex at first because you get a multiplayer bonus for each syllable your word has. In addition, unlike scrabble, you can use proper nouns and you have nine tiles in your tray so you can often make much longer and more complex words. To allow this, the game board is also quite a bit bigger.
If you come from Windows Mobile and are into playing MAME arcade games, you may well remember my full article dedicated to the emulation of arcade machines, including MAME, on the platform. (Note that the linked article doesn't show inline images; if you need them, check out THIS instead.)
Fortunately, on the iDevice, it's also possible to play MAME games. No, unlike on Windows Mobile, not the newer, vastly superior (NeoGeo / CPS), “only” the older ones, but it's still more than nothing, isn't it? And it's free – and is also compatible with several Bluetooth game controllers (see below).

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.
