We don't simply hand out 5 out of 5 Editor's Choice ratings to every iOS game that comes along. It takes something pretty special to wow us like that, but Super Stickman Golf was more than up to the task. We awarded the game our coveted perfect score last week in our review.
You may remember hearing about iCade, ThinkGeek’s 2010 April Fool’s Day joke that showed a mini arcade console that housed an iPad. Unfortunately, at the time it was just that -- a joke -- but after months of anticipation, the iCade is finally for real, with preorders now shipping.
Possibly our favorite aspect of iOS gaming is the simple fact that anybody can develop, and they can do it cheaply. This leads iOS gaming away from the ultra-serious hardcore tone of console gaming, and gives it its very own personality. Lately, that personality has been utterly bonkers. First Desctructopus. Then Laser Dolphin. Now we've got Techno Kitten Adventure to add to our stable of increasingly weird iOS titles.
Ordinarily we don't tend to post about small-scale iOS app sales. Usually we save those kinds of articles for gigantic company-wide sales around holidays, but this time we're going to make an exception. Maybe we're just in that kind of mood, or maybe it's a slow news day. Or maybe it's because these two games could justifiably be called the two best games ever released for iOS.
As we reported late last month, it appears that the single best iOS RPG on the planet (Earth), Chaos Rings, will be getting a prequel release tonight. The game has already released in New Zealand which signifies that it's on its way around the globe, arriving in App Stores world-wide around midnight in that respective time zone.
As if we needed any more reasons to be head over heels in love with ChAIR Entertainment's iOS masterstroke Infinity Blade, today we're getting word from the developer that they're releasing a brand new update for the game that will be available Thursday, May 19.
Over the years there have been many robot games, and there have been surfing games as well. However, never before in history has there been a human brilliant enough to combine the two. That ends June 1 however as Pieces Interactive preps Robo Surf for its debut on the App Store.
Long before the Angry Birds became the undisputed kings/queens of the App Store there was another physics launching game that was tearing up the charts. Crush the Castle became a quiet hit, racking up more than a million and a half downloads. Now the game's developer, Armor Games, is back with a spiritual successor to Crush the Castle to take back the throne it once held.
The war of the weirdest continues at a frenzied pace these days as App Store game creators are coming up with ever more bizarre ways to make their games stand out against the competition. Just recently we took a look at Destructopus (which we hear is doing very well on the App Store) then there was Laser Dolphin, and now we have Pizza vs Skeletons. It's the latest in a batch of strange games that are exactly what they sound like.
