Welcome back to my gaming reviews as I try out some of the best new iOS games!
Urban Dictionary defines epic fail as, "Complete and total failure when success should have been reasonably easy to attain." So I find it ironic that Epic Games' sure-fire hit, Infinity Blade: Dungeons has been beset with delay after delay. After all, it's not often one of the most successful iOS game franchises has such an eagerly-anticipated game waiting in the wings that they just can't seem to get to market. Now, we have word from Epic Games we shouldn't hold our breath for the release of what certainly looked like another great chapter in the Infinity Blade saga.
One of the coolest things I saw at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this year was the Rift, virtual reality goggles from developers Oculus. Oculus takes the science of vision and applies it to virtual reality gaming in an arena that will be intimately familiar to any fan of iOS gaming.
Who doesn’t like a good side scrolling infinite runner? If you just raised your hand, this review probably won’t interest you. For those that are left, I’m afraid this game might not interest you. I appreciate that the developers felt they were doing something slightly different than the rest of the crowd, but frankly the game feels like a Robot Unicorn / Unicorn Dash knock-off with a horse riding, sword wielding demon. While in theory that sounds cool, in practice it comes off as a cheap second rate attempt at doing something that’s already been done much better. This may sound awfully harsh, but keep in mind we’re talking about a genre that already has plenty of entries.
Zombie Master is a fun game that combines all the fun and strategy of StarCraft with the action of Gears of War together into one great game. As the name implies this game centers around hunting zombies, and keeping yourself alive. To conquer the game you need to gather items including minerals, gas and foods so you can build different buildings, create new units and upgrade them both to keep yourself strong.
Welcome to my roundup of some of the best new (and updated) iOS games! This week we'll take a look at the uniquely genre-defying greatness that is Heroes and Castles, the adrenaline-fueled racing madness of 2XL MX Offroad and the refreshing word puzzlement of Letter by Letter.
Some ex-Rovio gamemakers teamed up under the Boomlagoon banner to create another 2-D physics game--a platform scrolling game called Noble Nutlings. The free game is hugely fun and probably destined for gaming success! The other game I tried out this week is Pinball Arcade. Electronic Pinball is to iPad what jelly is to peanut butter, and the easy touch and robust graphics of iPad make almost any 3-D pinball game just plain awesome! Pinball Arcade is one of the most authentic recreations I have seen done on any hardware. Too bad the freebie lite mode times you out and charges you to buy tables, but well, developers gotta eat too... and the lifelike tables are easily worth the price!
Listen Up! Is a great audio game which takes turn based games to the next level. While there have been dozens of new games over the past year where people have to draw clues or guess letters to find the answer to the question, Listen Up uses audio recordings to make the game play even more fun and interactive.
As a kid, I didn't play Cats in the Cradle much... But I did play it a little bit. If you're note familiar with the game, one person holds some string or a rubber band in their fingers and the next person interacts with it and so on. It's more than a game, because you're learning problem solving skills, not to mention physics and geometry!
The water cycles app is an entertaining game where you have to help guide the water from the mountains out to the sea using different pieces along the way. The game gets challenging because you have to also bring the water to different towns, villages and cities to use before it finally makes its way to the sea. Still not hard enough? Well, when the water goes through the different cities it will get polluted, and you need to filter it to make it clean again before finally bringing it to the sea.
