iPhone App Video Review: My Little Hero

The premise is a simple one. After being tucked in by your mother, the boogeyman (who kind of resembles our old pal Oogie Boogie of A Nightmare Before Christmas) takes every single one of your toys and dolls.

iPhone App Video Review: N.O.V.A. 3

The multiplayer mode has also been polished up, although it isn’t without some tarnish itself. Any fans of iPhone shooters should definitely pick this one up A.S.A.P. The story is more epic than ever, involving a galaxy wide hunt for ancient Judger artifacts, a.k.a. the McGuffins of this title. Th ... Full Article »

iPhone App Video Review: Sid Meier’s Pirates!

I should note that this is a port of the 2004 version, though a game of the same name was also released in the eighties.  The game is full of locations to explore, cities to visit, sword duels to fight, and passing ships to plunder.

iPhone App Video Review: Touch Detective 2 1/2

It focuses on charming, witty, and humorous characters and writing, lots of dialogue and reading, and very abstract or nonsensical puzzles. Okay, that last one only really applies to Touch Detective, but regardless, this is a great, albeit frustrating, game. You play as Mackenzie, a quirky young de ... Full Article »

iPhone App Video Review: Dungeon Crawlers

That being said, what we do get is a highly enjoyable strategy game with great characters and humor. It's very linear, starts out slow, and needs a few updates to reach its potential, but overall I'd say it's worth checking out. The game follows the adventures of four heroes who are hired to take c ... Full Article »

Law & Order Legacies is more like interactive TV than adventure gaming

Law & Order Legacies, a new point-and-click iOS adventure title by Telltale Games, has me in a quandary. The 20-year fan in me wants to unabashedly endorse, even love, this opportunity to enter the action with a mash-up “all-star” cast from the original TV classic and SVU. But, as a game, es ...
