Anyone with the right tools and a little coding knowhow can probably make an iOS game without too much trouble. Literally thousands of new gaming apps flood the App Store every week -- however, the quality often varies wildly. For every Canabalt and Sword & Sworcery there are probably 50 less quality titles to spend your hard-earned $0.99 to $1.99 on.
Hungry Monsters falls into the latter category: the bastard child of Critter Crunch’s food-gobbling mechanics and the indirect control seen in Yuji Naka’s Ivy the Kiwi, it isn't as well put-together, distinct, or fun as either game.
The Electronic Entertainment Expo is coming to a close today and after several days of being blown away by gazillion-dollar-demonstrations, breathtaking graphics and the coolest upcoming titles gaming has to offer, we'd like to point out the 10 coolest iOS games on the horizon that we can't wait to get our mitts on.
Ok, this was a surprise, but a cool one. OnLive, the cloud-based, gaming-on-demand service for the Mac OS X and Windows platforms, showed off a demonstration of its iOS version of its game client at E3 in Los Angeles, California.
If you’ve been pumped up since seeing Marvel’s comic book hero Thor brought to life on the big screen last weekend, you may equally excited by the company’s small-screen edition, in the form of a new game that just hit the App Store.
Now that we’ve all gotten over the disappointment that there won’t be a new iPhone in June and the long wait until September begins, we’ll have to console ourselves with rumors such as this one, about a potential “iPhone 4S” being tested by handpicked game developers.
When we first told you about it this past August, the iControlPad had us pretty excited. Not much has changed since then, other than the fact that handcrafted smartphone gaming peripheral is finally available for sale and is expected to start shipping sometime this month. Before you ask, yes, we've already ordered ours.
If there was ever a relevant moment in the original Star Wars trilogy, it would have been during the Empire Strikes Back when an ancient Jedi Master named Yoda calmly stated that "Size matters not." Yoda then proceeded to lift a multi-ton spaceship out of a muddy bog and placed it exactly where he wanted it using nothing more than the force. With that inspirational moment in mind, we think of Sony's recent unveiling of the much-anticipated, next-generation handheld console, currently codenamed the "Next Generation Portable" -- or "iPod touch killer" in some circles.
Don’t worry, Rovio -- your spot at the top of the paid iPhone apps chart is secure for now. But that free version of Angry Birds? Not so much, thanks to Bubble Ball, the work of a 14-year-old eighth grader from Utah.
If you’ve got friends with an iOS device, then rejoice! So long as you’re not rocking the left-in-the-dust 3G--or even worse, the first gen iPod touch--you’ve been able to play friends and strangers on Game Center for quite some time. It’s easy to add friends to play with on Game Center, and now iPad owners have finally gotten their turn. We decided to check out some of the iPad’s best Game Center options, focusing primarily on the games that let you play opponents online.
If you’re looking for people to play with, leave your Gamer Center tag in the comments section. As an added bonus, you’ll instantly be entered for a chance to win a Tunebug Vibe – an ultra-portable speaker that utilizes surfacesound technology to blast any music device with a 3.5mm headset jack. Making friends and winning stuff? Now that’s a combination. Scroll down to the bottom for more details.
If there’s a universal truth, it’s this: anyone who’s seen the original Star Wars trilogy wanted to pilot the Millennium Falcon at some point in their lives. This was the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy, capable of anything you could imagine, and you wanted to fly it--no matter what.
THQ’s Star Wars Arcade: Falcon Gunner works to bring this to life. The game inserts you into the driver seat as the role of a crewmember aboard the Millennium Falcon, where you'll relive such classic scenes as the escape from the Death Star in “A New Hope”, the asteroid field battle in “Empire Strikes Back” and a special take on the occasional Imperial Star Destroyer, for good measure.
