In March of last year, Anomaly developer 11-bit Studios announced This War of Mine, a game about war from the perspective of the civilians who are caught up in the middle. It appeared to be an extremely somber but refreshing look at war, which in the world of video games is more often than not
One of my unexpected favorites of 2014 was Checkpoint Champion [Free], as Protostar nailed pretty much every aspect of their game from top to bottom, earning a five-star review from me. The two-person Australian team has been hard at work on their next game, Sling Kong, and it's looking fun. You'll be slinging cute little
There’s a lot of new stuff to take in with the Minecraft: Pocket Edition 0.11 update, and thankfully AppSpy has a handy video run-down of what to look for. The post Video Tour of Everything New in Minecraft: Pocket Edition 0.11 Update...Show More Summary
As a casual fan of developer SMG’s other games, One More Dash [Free] was one of the first things I downloaded this week. I played a few rounds, and it seemed pretty good. Alas, there were a lot of other games to potentially review, and it fell by the wayside. As usual, some of them
Capitals [Free] from NimbleBit has rustled a few jimmies with its lives system and its particular implementation. At the moment, you spend a life whenever a game starts up, with lives recharging over time. It's a system that makes sense to me, but it's not the most intuitive one, and has cuased a lot of
"The line between disorder and order lies in logistics..." -Sun Tzu. It's hard to find a word that evokes as many connotations of hell, destruction, anger, and failure as the word "Vietnam" does for the collective American psyche. The Vietnam War was a war like no other - and that includes the current conflicts. For
I’m certainly as much a fan of zombie games as the next guy, but there are other undead specimens that are just as cool and often tend to go virtually unnoticed. The upcoming game The Frankenstein Wars takes the notion that someone has managed to harness the secrets of Dr. Frankenstein and create an army … Read more
Oh hey, here's a cool little surprise. Classic PC game Terminal Velocity [$2.99] has – as you can tell by that little price tag there – been ported to iOS. The port was done by Mark Randel, co-founder of Terminal Reality, the game's original developer. The studio closed down in 2013, but Randel ported the
What’s better than a horse simulator? A wild horse simulator, of course. There’s a game about that very thing, and Lonnie has made a video about it. Check it out above.

One of my favorite dual-stick shooters, at least before Geometry Wars 3 [$4.99] came out, has been Trigonarium [$1.99]. And really, the game still holds up pretty well on its own merits. And the game has been updated with some new stuff, including one vital feature: MFi controller support. Yes, you can now play this
I love when developers take inspiration from older consoles and try to craft a new game with that console in mind. For example, Yacht Club Games' Shovel Knight for the 3DS absolutely feels like it could have been a genuine NES game back in the late '80s or early '90s. Or the sadly-no-longer-available-for-iOS Dark Void
Disney and Kabam have just released the first details and a teaser trailer for a new Star Wars game that's coming to mobile later this year: Star Wars: Uprising. Being made at the Kabam RPG Studio in San Francisco, the one that made Spirit Lords [Free], this is sounding like an action-RPG where you can
Think you've spent too much money on Hearthstone [Free] already? Well, strap in for this one- Blizzard just announced that they're quickly adding cosmetic skins to the mix of things you can buy in game. They'll run $9.99, and when you unlock one it'll replace your existing hero portrait at the bottom of the playing
The fine folks at Butterscotch Shenanigans do a podcast called Coffee with Butterscotch that covers the latest happenings around them and their games. The brothers Sam, Seth, and Adam Coster all have gloriously gravelly voices, so it's quite the pleasing listen. It's like your ears are being given a deep massage. And if you think
We didn't know exactly when, but early yesterday we learned that Square Enix's perpetually soft-launched sniper-centric take on the Hitman franchise would be coming today. As promised, Hitman Sniper [$4.99] has finally, at long last, for really realsies been released to the App Store. Seriously! We last took a look at Hitman Sniper during last
To tell you the truth, friends, I'm actually pretty busy working on something today. That said, I was asked to come and write something for all of you about the new follow-up to Luca Redwood's 10000000 [$2.99]. It's called You Must Build A Boat [$2.99], and it's every bit as compelling as the first game.
It's finally here folks, the day you've been waiting all year for: My birthday! Oh, that was just me waiting for that? Well, hey, we all get to celebrate anyway as the sequel to 10000000, You Must Build A Boat, is finally upon us, and it is fan-freaking-tastic! We'll have our review for it going
The digging game Pocket Mine 2 is now available (for free, no less), and the loquacious YouTuber Lonnie has taken it for a spin. Give it a look above.

Remember the story about that really cool action hero who fought the Nazis and a supernatural threat in a variety of exotic locales, always with good-looking women by his side? You know, the one whose adventures take place in 1936? Dr. Indiana Jones? Who's that? I'm talking about Fenton Paddock, the hero of the adventure
Skiing Yeti Mountain [Free] is the kind of game that's best in a bunch of small doses over time. The gameplay is solid, the controls excellent, and the structure of this skiing game is great for mobile. But in trying ot be this experience that you play over a long time, it doesn't do a
