When Chair Entertainment released Infinity Blade to iOS devices back in 2010, there's no way the Epic Games-owned developer could have predicted the game's overwhelming success. Just last month, Epic's Tim Sweeney crowned Infinity Blade as the company's "most profitable" title ever; a huge statement, coming from the company behind the mega-selling Gears of War franchise. Skycages is the third, and sadly final, free content update for Infinity Blade II.
When a studio is entering the seventh iteration of a game franchise, it's expectedly difficult to keep things feeling fresh. And the issue of creative stagnation is even more prevalent when looking at genres with traditionally strict boundaries, like the arcade racer. So, if you were hoping Gameloft would reinvent the wheel -- pardon the pun -- with Asphalt 7: Heat, curb your expectations.
With Mountain Lion fresh out the gate, there doesn't seem to be too many deals on actual Macs this week, so cases it is. iOS accessories know no season and proliferate worse than bunnines in the springtime. We've rounded up the best of the sweet little bunnies and have just what you're looing for. Take a look at that face! How can you say no?
It's not always easy being vegetarian or vegan -- especially the latter. Many people just don't understand it, and most popular cook books feature meat-based recipes, though that's starting to change. While most of us eat well despite this, iOS takes vegetarian eating to a whole new level. Luckily, there's a whole slew of apps in the App Store that cater to both vegetarians and vegans alike. Whether you're looking for a few new recipes, traveling to a foreign country, or just looking for a good vegetarian restaurant around town, read on -- we've got 10 great apps for you to check out.
There are many apps available for iPad photo enhancement, but few of them come with the pedigree of Tiffen, a company practically synonymous with optical filters for cameras. Can the company’s digital equivalent live up to the same storied reputation?
Follow the Rabbit sends you on a colorful and fun-filled romp through 125 puzzle-based levels that stays addictive and entertaining right to the end. Although it occasionally suffers from a lack of difficulty, I couldn't keep myself from going after the pesky rabbit and the many coins he dropped along the way.
Word processing on the iPad is far from perfect. No matter how adept I may be at using the touch keyboard, tapping through a document to delete a stray word or dragging blue dots to rearrange a thought is an overly arduous task. Tyype HD leverages iOS gestures to envision a better way to edit text. Power users of Pages already know about the one-character swipe, but Tyype HD kicks it up a few notches with a dramatic re-imagining of how we interact with text on our iOS devices.
During the Olympics Opening Ceremonies Friday night, Apple somewhat unceremoniously unveiled the makings of a new ad campaign featuring a young Genius Bar worker ready to help troubled Mac users anywhere and everywhere they need assistance. It’s always a bit exciting to see a new Apple ad -- but this trio of commercials have set off a bit of controversy for two reasons: 1) They’re dedicated to the Mac; and 2) they’re a major departure from what we’re used to.
With all the buzz surrounding the Summer Olympic games, which are now well underway, we're totally stoked for all of the friendly competition among international athletes playing out in London. For those who aren't content to be mere armchair spectators glued to your TV, iOS devices, or web browsers, the London 2012 Official Mobile Game puts a little taste of the Olympic action at your fingertips. Unfortunately, a few loose screws rattling around underneath the buoyant presentation make this official game a rather embarrassing affair at times.
Sometimes, a video game's narrative, mechanics, and platform complement each other in such a seemingly perfect way. While Telltale's Walking Dead: The Game is far from the first adventure game to shine on iOS devices – the same developer has other titles on the App Store, in fact – few have emerged as splendidly. The Walking Dead is emotionally charged, wonderfully paced, and a fine example of why the adventure genre is such a concise fit for the iOS hardware.
