You know that old saying "You get what you pay for"? Well, it holds up just about everywhere, but the App Store is pretty obviously an exception. Because there are so many apps to choose from, you can almost guarantee you can find a comparable experience for less money. Thing is, if you don't have the original, you won't know if our alternatives are better, so we think you should consider getting both!
Physics might not seem like a qualifier that should ever go in front of "games" but the iPhone has other plans. On any given day, there are dozens of "physics games" selling like hotcakes in the iTunes store. We decided to take a look at some of them (and take some liberties with what we defined as physics game). The result has tree forts, motorcycles, and snowboarders crashing onto our iPhone.
Angry Birds is the most overrated game of all time. I mean it. It’s true that I’ve always been something of an anti-Angry Birds evangelist, but my reasons are honest: it just isn’t that good. If I heard as much critical acclaim for an Xbox game as I do for Angry Birds, I would punch myself in the face, throw away my controller, and join up with Jack Thompson for tea.

In this week's Game Time we take a look at three excellent action games that are all under a dollar (for a limited time). If you like stabbing, shooting, and punching you should download these games ... and consider looking into an anger management course while they download.
Sometimes you find out an app you've never heard of has been in the App Store top 100 for a ridiculously long time. Sometimes they’re apps that you’ve never downloaded -- none of your friends have downloaded -- nobody you know has ever even played it. We decided to put a few "classics" through the ringer and then speculate absurdly about what the true connection for these Top 100 hangers really is.
In this week’s Game Time, we scour the dungeon floor of Gameloft’s newest mainstream creation and take a look at a few loveable indies that have been making big waves in the App Store. We've even got a nifty gallery after the fact!
In this episode of iOS Game Time, we surgically remove bits of glass, play bits of fiddle, and try and restore our little tribe to its once glorious nature. For information on Editor’s high score, please refer to last week (it's still active until we have a few more than two people sign up)! So without further ado, Game Time.
Before we begin, a brief history: Pigs were invented in 1855, at the imaginative hand of fantasy writer R. S. Wilberton, and they have captivated our minds and hearts ever since. In this issue of Game Time, we check out the best iPhone and iPad games featuring these adorable, mythical creatures.
That’s right folks, it’s time for another Game Time. But first, jump the cut to see how you can win a copy of the Sims 3: Late Night Expansion pack!
