If you happen to be one of the few folks on the planet who haven't experienced the revolutionary gameplay of the original Infinity Blade, now's your chance, no more excuses. For only the second time since this masterpiece of a game was released three years ago, Infinity Blade has gone free in the App Store in celebration of the season. But act fast, this deal likely won't last long.
On Monday we published the iPhone Life Bloggers' Awards: Best Apps of 2013. You may have noticed a very important category was missing—gaming apps! That's because they're so important that they needed their own roundup. Bloggers voted for their favorite gaming apps in six different categories. Here are their favorite three gaming apps of 2013 for each category!
City Birds (free from $0.99, Nov. 27-29)
Matching fans are in for a treat should they decide to take City Birds for a spin. This game is pure casual action fun that’s not quite like anything I’ve played before on my iPad, and given the amount of games I have played, that says quite a bit. It’s easy to learn and quickly gets addictive. The problem is that once you’ve unlocked all the birds and completed all the challenges, which sadly doesn’t take as long as one would like, the game grows kind of stale. Hopefully updates that are in the works will address this issue so that this original game can remain fresh to its players for quite some time.
Welcome to a very special installment of Game Centered. Game Centered features roundups and in-depth reviews of the best in iOS games and related gaming news. Among the App Store’s myriad games, it’s all too easy to overlook some of the greats. Each installment of Game Centered will take a close look at a select few worthy of special recognition. This week, we are treated to a special installment with four highly anticipated, blockbuster game titles making their debuts in the App Store.
I used to start out just about every review of an online game making some sort of comment about how I don’t really like online games. I'm beginning to think that’s not really the case. What I don’t like are games where if you’re not in the “elite” you’re pretty much dead when you step out on the battlefield. I also don’t care for games where people pretty much expect you to chat or make the game as much about taunting as actually playing. Thankfully The Rats Online (free with IAP) handles all of these things in just the right manner. Its simple nature makes it easy to get into, and the nicely organized list of folks you need to exact revenge on makes it worth coming back in periodically to see how things are going.
I recently discovered Quingo, a trivia game that offers a bunch of twists. Of course you have to answer trivia questions, but there are also objectives to meet. Each question has five correct answers, and you have to identify them quickly, out of a pool of as many as 25 potential answers. There is also a time element as well as "power ups" or "cheats" that you can earn to build your score.
Collectible cards games (CCGs) rose to popularity over multiple generations. Console giant Nintendo got its start making their own brand of playing cards in Japan in the late 1880s, 100 years before CCGs became the global hit they are today. Since the introduction of Magic: the Gathering in 1993, multitudes of great playing games have come and gone with relative ease.
Before there was Xbox and PlayStation, and way back before even Nintendo and Atari 2600 (think waaay back), there was a world domination strategy game (played with tiny plastic pieces on a flat game-board) that was so earth shatteringly cool that it defied description. No computer screen rendering was required to imagine the massing of superior firepower to encircle and destroy your enemies. That game was the legendary game of Risk (still sold by Hasbro today), and it was nothing less than epic (if you actually had friends to play it with). If one could have imagined the real combat coordination and visualization that was missing from Risk, I believe Machines at War 3 ($6.99) would not have been far off the mark!

Have you ever played fantasy football and felt like you were limited in your head-to-head matchups at times? Or thought to yourself if only you had picked the player who's lighting up the boards and costing you a win? Well, RotoPop, a new fantasy football app for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad aims to provide a fun experience that will alleviate all of those anxieties.
Most everyone knows that there's no shortage of Zombie-themed games in the App Store. From cool photo apps to lighthearted and whimsical romps, it seems like the plethora of Zombie games for iDevices are only adding to the national fervor for the undead. I keep wondering are they (the powers that be) trying to prepare us for something? Well whatever the case may be, conspiracy or not, there’s no denying that Zombies have never been more of a social phenomena. And to celebrate this Halloween, I've rounded up six of the best Zombie First Person Shooters in the App Store.
Be warned though, these aren't your Plants vs Zombies cartoonish fare; the games featured here are graphic and terrifying, not for the faint of heart and not necessarily for young kids. What we have here are six of the most realistically rendered, and graphically depicted horrorfests on iOS. Read on if you are looking for a good Zombie massacre game that will likely keep you up late into the night playing, and then haunt your dreams with terrors of the undead...
