AppSpy’s video review of the retro-style sword-swinging platformer Sword of Xolan praises the game for its precise controls and hearty character, though the overall experience is reportedly a wee bit short.

I was recently reading a science fiction novel that featured a central character who argued against the idea that consciousness is a good thing to have. On the surface that sounds absurd, but think about it a little deeper. Computers absolutely demolish us when it comes to things like math and chess, and some of
Hello, gentle readers, and welcome to the RPG Reload, the weekly feature where we beat up kappa and eat up kappamaki. Friends, you do not want to mix those things up, I assure you. Each week, we take a look at an RPG from the App Store's past to give it another spin. It's a
Do you like dogs and dog games? Do you like it when dogs avoid being crushed? If so, watch Lonnie play Corny Crush in the video above. More about Corny Crush » The post Lonnie Plays Corny Crush is from Slide To Play via YouTube.
Heroes and Castles 2 [$1.99] runs into the problem that trying to bring big-scope, console-style games to mobile often have: these games are often well-made and can be fun to play. But sometimes, they're terrible fits for the actual platform. And that's where my issues with Heroes and Castles 2 lie: the game's good, I
Back in November of last year, we went hands-on with the sickeningly adorable roguelite dungeon crawler Sproggiwood, which launched on PC last October and was on its way to the mobile platform. Today developer Freehold Games has sent word that the mobile version of Sproggiwood finally has a release date, next Thursday, May 28th. Check
Puerto Rican developer Space Rhino Games has announced their tower defense game Breach TD will be launching worldwide next week, on May 27th. The game is described as being a spiritual successor to Squad TD, which is a popular mod for Starcraft 2. The original creator and maintainer of the map, known as Tsjnsn, is
Out of all the random cool occupations that people love to pit against each other in hypothetical fights, Vikings are my personal favorite. I like them more than pirates, ninjas, cyborgs, wizards, samurai, zombies, astronauts, and indeed, cavemen. The proclivity of mobile game designers to use Vikings in cute, chibi, horned helmet form despite their
Remember the Crescent Moon-published space dogfighting game Strike Wing: Raptor Rising [$0.99] from 2013? Well, it's been over a year and a half since its release, but developer Dream Builder Studios has just updated it with a big Episode 2 update. The bulk of the content is in five new story missions to play through,
You might see the isometric view and somewhat blocky visuals of upcoming game Cartoon Survivor and think that it's yet another game aping Crossy Road [Free]. You might watch the trailer and think your suspicions have been confirmed. You would be dead wrong. Cartoon Survivor is instead a prety nifty auto-running platformer that's coming to
Rebel 1…. Action! Full disclosure up front; if you couldn't tell. I freaking love the BlazBlue games. Not only are they complex, highly competitive fighting games, but they have a genuinely awesome story that is actually the focus. The mastermind of BlazBlue, Toshimichi Mori, has even said his intention was to create an epic fighting
I absolutely love how Zen Studios is able to collaborate with so many different companies in order to bring a number of different brands to life in pinball table form. There are of course a multitude of tables based on the Star Wars and Marvel properties, but there's also things like Walking Dead Pinball, which
When I originally reviewed Rapture - World Conquest[Free], I tagged it with a 4.5/5 with the caveat that multiplayer would really kick it up to the full on 5. For basically anyone still paying attention to this game(there has to be someone out there) not only did they follow through a few months ago, but
Capitals [Free] from NimbleBit is their take on a long-running genre: the turn-based multiplayer word game. Thankfully, they manage to deliver a fun and worthwhile take on the genre by making it a simple strategy game that just uses familiar word game mechanics to feel familiar. It's a game that's accessible, but leads to an
As we mentioned a few weeks ago, the developers of Midnight Star [Free] were planning a hefty update, and that update has just hit the App Store with a thump. Update 1.1 is the biggest update of the game so far and addresses some important issues as well as adds several new features that will change
Welcome to another week of new iOS games! It's an exciting week for me personally as I've been dying to get my hands on the pixely action platformer Sword Of Xolan ever since I first saw the trailer, as well as the pixely SkiFree-inpsired skiing game Skiing Yeti Mountain. Plus the Noodlecake-published Brickies looks like
Sales are fun, aren't they? I like seeking out bargains - buying iOS games can be an expensive sport - but I enjoy it doubly when the games don't go completely free because while I might occasionally run out of money for games, I still want to help the developers of games I enjoy. So,
In the genre of “not flying into the wall” comes Oddwings Escape, a really nice-looking game about controlling a bird that’s hard to control. Watch Lonnie give it his best in the video above. More about Oddwings Escape » The post Lonnie Plays Oddwings Escape is from Slide To Play via YouTube.
We are cursed to live in interesting times in gaming. Things are chaotic, and the industry could go in any one of a million directions. Eli Hodapp talked recently about how he sees signs of console/desktop publishers making new, more concerted mobile efforts. Dedicated gaming hardware is in decline and its possible death throes. The
Are you ready for NimbleBit's latest word game? Capitals [Free] is finally here. We've been posting about Capitals for the last few months, and the game has been in a soft launch/stress test in Canada for about a week now, and it looks like everything is good to go for the global launch. NimbleBit has
