Mix some paint with your puzzle platforming in Nihilumbra

Nihilumbra is a puzzle platformer from Beautifun Games. It would definitely qualify as an “art game,” so to speak. Some of the aesthetic and design elements are a bit derivative, but that does not stop this from being a very well made and entertaining puzzle platformer. Definitely don’t judge ... Full Article »

One Tap Hero offers a clever way to save the day

One Tap Hero is a clever little title from Coconut Island and Chillingo. It's the all-too-rare one button game, which are understandably hard to make into lasting and engaging games.

iPhone App Video Review: Mega Run - Redford's Adventure

Rather than go with the more popular “endless” runner route, this title is divided into various levels. However, the layout of those levels are made up of interchangeable sections, so while each level has the same segments, they’re not always in the same order, and the power-ups that you’ll ...

Random Heroes adds to a winning formula

If Random Heroes seems familiar, it’s not because it’s a cheap knock-off or just eerily reminiscent of pixelated platform shooters from years gone by.

iPhone App Video Review: Sonic The Hedgehog 4™ Episode II

While Sega built the game from the ground up in a new engine to address physics issues, it’s still lacking, and definitely doesn’t live up to the days of “Blast Processing.” Just as Episode I borrowed heavily from the original Sonic, Episode II borrows from the second Sonic, reintroducing M ...

iPhone App Video Review: Gunman Clive

This game is one of those rare titles that marries old school and new school like peanut butter and jelly. The gameplay is structured like Mega Man with a dash of Contra, but mostly the former, while the visuals take the western theme in a unique direction by making everything look like it was sketc ...

iPhone App Video Review: Swordigo

You play as a young nameless hero in training. Your master is killed one night by dark shadow creatures known as Corruptors, and their return must be stopped at all costs.

iPhone App Video Review: Hunger Games: Girl on Fire

You play as a girl named Katniss Everdeen, and you are currently taking part in a ridiculous, “fight to the death” reality TV show, a la The Running Man and other similar stories.
