At long last (and after much hankering), Sid Meier's "Pirates!" has arrived for the iPad. Which means you can stop showing up to work carrying a cutlass and demanding that treasure be plundered at almost every meeting.
The appropriately named John Kannon yells this to no one in particular in the first level of 9mm, since the hoods he’s targeting are huddled idiotically in a room below the skylight the badass cop is about to crash through. Then, cue the slow motion gunplay and predictable South Central-ish gangland soundtrack—while you’re taking out these worthless thugs with extreme prejudice, you may think to yourself, “Gee, I feel like I’ve played this game before.”
When we last left off with Puzzle Agent star Nelson Tethers, he'd successfully reopened the eraser factory in the mysterious Scoggins, Minnesota, but had many unanswered questions. What happened to the missing foreman? What's going on with the creepy gnomes that Nelson kept seeing? And who is that astronaut who plagues his dreams? Puzzle Agent 2 gets closer to answering these questions, but creates a host of new ones in the process. No one ever said being a puzzle agent was going to be easy.
With a few exceptions, mascot kart racers are generally a phenomenon to approach with caution and trepidation. It may seem like fun when a well-loved company takes a bunch of their most beloved characters, outfits them with racing gear, special abilities, and weapons, and sends them on their merry way through a variety of themed tracks. But often these sorts of projects don’t reflect the same level of polish and care a fan might expect from Company X’s flagship titles themselves.
Not the case with Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing...
It’s hard to say what you’d do in the event of a zombie apocalypse, though most people agree that they’d arm themselves to the teeth -- and perhaps set the undead hordes on fire. As you do in Burn Zombie Burn, a third-person strategic shooter in which you fight wave after wave of assorted zombies. Initially you have a revolver and a torch, then upgrade to assorted Uzis, shotguns, clubs, explosives, flamethrowers, chainsaws, lawnmowers, mind control rays, and Gatling guns.
I'm not sure what the correlation is between pudding and haunted houses. I've never seen anyone eat pudding in one. Maybe the connection between sweets and scares is Halloween, though I can't recall ever getting pudding while trick-or-treating (it would make the bag all sticky). No matter the tenuous premise, Pudding Panic's concoction of sugar and shocks is a winning formula.
“Drum like a pro” is JamKit’s slogan, and while we hate to be nitpicky... well, what pro plays a 27-piece drum kit using two fingers? Then again, “Drum like you were playing a really complicated but slick game of Simon, and match your skills against other finger-drummers worldwide” is a bit unwieldy.
People have been armchair-quarterbacking the Civil War forever. This turn-based strategy game American Civil War lets you settle all that by controlling the Union or Confederacy in campaigns that focus on individual years or the entire five-year war.
Anyone who's been to a Portland Timbers game knows that Timber Joey, the official mascot for PDX’s pro-soccer team, isn’t a cartoon character. He’s a burly, larger-than-life, flesh-and-blood man -- albeit one that happens to wear typified logger headwear and a wield a massive chain saw. Of course, the depiction of Timber Joey in a flash animated you-versus-the-hordes arcade game wouldn’t make sense as a real person, so here he is in fact a stylized character, and he’s pretty upset about the abundance of fish (these are the Seattle Flounders) trying to trample through his rose garden.
