After months of anticipation, Infinity Blade has finally come to Apple's iOS platform--and it will do its very best to take every cent of your lunch money if you're not sure of what you're doing.
Set in a medieval age, Infinity Blade puts you in the role of an unnamed hero who must fight his way through the multiple champions of a castle in order to take on and try to defeat a mysterious figure known as the God King. Despite your best efforts and intentions, you will not succeed--or at least, not the first time through.
So, without further ado, here's what several hours spent working towards (and finally) defeating the God King taught me this past weekend.
For the puzzle freak in all of us, software developer Appular has announced that its Push Panic puzzle game is now available on the iTunes Store.
In Push Panic, you must tap assorted boxes to blast piece combinations off the screen before the red panic bar goes critical and topples the entire mass over. The game features 50 levels and four gameplay modes (Classic Panic, Color Panic, Time Panic and Score Panic), each with their own challenges.
Ok, this is reminding me that the toys of my youth were significantly less awesome than what's on the market today. Per Touch Arcade, a new game is in the works for the super-awesome Parrot AR Drone Wi-Fi quadricopter. The app, known as "AR.

All Hail the iPad! And why not? After all, Cupertino's slick little device has been an unparalleled hit, and not just for Apple. Remember DVD players and how quickly those ended up in every home? Yeah, well the iPad is crushing the DVD player in adoption rates. Yeah, you read that right, and you're gonna keep on reading, because this is In Case You Missed It, kids, and we mean business.
Steam released Left 4 Dead 2 for the Mac this week. So you can expect Robbie, Flo and Nic to be running around fighting zombies while singing The Cranberries', "What's in your head, in your heaaddddd, ZOMBIE ZOMBIE ZOMBIE…"

The grudge match between we iPhone users and those poor, misguided souls who believe that their Android handset is soooo superior can now be settled in the theatre of war. Finally, the endless arguments over the numbers of apps available and open source versus closed ecosystem will end with the loser failing to the sound of pew-pew-pew-pew.
So you thought the iCade video game cabinet for the iPad was just an April Fool's Day joke? Well, as it turns out, this little fun video game controller is a reality. Inspired by the ThinkGeek prank, a prototype was built. Of course, the only thing better than going to an actual arcade (assuming you can find one) is playing it on your personal screen powered by an iPad.
