iOS games don't get a whole lot more unique than 2009's Hysteria Project. The game was essentially an indie horror movie, but with interactive video game elements tossed in. You play a role in a low-budget horror film, helping the main character along the way. For a video game its fairly low-involvement, but it's a really neat experience nonetheless. Now the story continues as the sequel is released.

Gameloft is bringing yet another of Ubisoft's (its sister company) greatest franchises to iOS platforms. A new trailer was recently released to hype the announcement of Tom Clancy's Rainbox Six: Shadow Vanguard. We don't yet know very much about the game itself, but given 15 years of history, we can make some pretty educated guesses as to how Shadow Vanguard will play.
There's been a lot of smack talk over the past year from Sony surrounding the iPhone as a gaming device in comparison to the PSP. While most consumers can see that the comparison of a device that does pretty much everything to one that focuses on doing one task very well is an apples and oranges sort of affair.

Based on the adorable Ninjatown characters created by toy company Shawnimals, Trees of Doom is a fun climbing game where your black-pajama-wearing friend scampers up a pair of trees, jumping back and forth between them to avoid enemies and obstacles and grab power-ups.

All you have to do is tap the screen to jump and hold to run, but it’s still as tricky as it is adorable.
