A Big Game for a Little Screen

Puzzle games and 3-hour adventure games are fun enough while you wait for a friend to show up, but if you want to sit down on your next month of subway rides with a nice, long RPG, Gamevil’s Zenonia 3: The Midguard Story has you covered on your iPhone or Android phone.

Review: Galaga 30th Collection

Subtitle: 
Four Games: Because They Didn’t Do Patches/Updates Back Then
thumbnail_summary: 
Galaga is a game that gives a smile to anyone who grew up visiting arcades, but unfortunately Galaga 30th Collection for the iPhone isn’t diverse enough in gameplay from game to game to warrant the cost, especially with the sometimes frustrating control scheme.

Just Give It Time...

Angry Birds

With Hollywood greenlighting nearly everything related to our childhoods (Battleship, coming to a theater near you in 2012!), you know this is just bound to happen. This fanmade trailer for an upcoming Angry Birds film echoes way too closely to the creative bankruptcy that currently plagues Hollywood studios and, quite frankly, would not surprise us in the least. "Angry Birds" as directed by Michael Bay? Give it a few years, and this could very well be our reality. 

Be sure to check out the trailer below.

Review: Dead Space for iPhone

Subtitle: 
Big Scares On A Tiny Screen
thumbnail_summary: 
As far as bringing the feeling and expectations of a console game to a smart phone and tablet, EA has done it a little too well and has consequently spoiled us in our expectations of what app games can do.

“For best experience use headphones.”

This experience includes having the breath scared out of you, watching bodies thrown across corridors with their splattering sound in comfortable balance between your ears and having every bullet fired echo across your mind.

Mini-Review: Flying Hamster (iPhone)

When I first saw the PSP trailer for Flying Hamster I was enamored by its ridiculously charming chibi anime take on side-scrolling space shooters, but I instead opted for the iPhone version when it came out for the sole reason that it came with GameCenter achievements and leaderboards.

Review: Bejeweled 3

Subtitle: 
Matching Three Remains Addictive
thumbnail_summary: 
If you've played games in the 8 years or so, be it on a phone, console or PC, you've probably run across Bejeweled in some form before. The series has derived huge success due to the beautifully simple and yet super-addicting mechanic of swapping adjacent gems to form sets of three or more.

If you've played games in the 8 years or so, be it on a phone, console or PC, you've probably run across Bejeweled in some form before. The series has derived huge success due to the beautifully simple and yet super-addicting mechanic of swapping adjacent gems to form sets of three or more. PopCap didn't risk the core mechanic of the game when it came time to build a sequel, so Bejeweled 2 simply added new modes that worked with the same gameplay in slightly different degrees.

Dead Space Coming To iPhone/iPad

DeadSpaceiPhone.jpg

Bridging the gap between the original Dead Space and its coming sequel, EA has announced an iOS game to be released in January.

The game was built to look like the console games; you'll control Isaac as he delves into the mines of Titan, fighting off necromorphs in a console-like 3D space. The game includes the bloodied violence you'd expect from the series, though it remains to be seen whether Apple will attempt to have it cleaned up a bit before release.
