    If there is any man who can make a unique and memorable game out of an overdone genre like the match-three, it's legendary game designer Ron Gilbert. Having worked on the creative and zany adventure games of Lucas Arts' golden years, like Secret of Monkey Island,  you can expect anything this guy touches to at least be original in some aspect, and definitely well written and funny, and that is exactly true here with Scurvy Scallywags, a theatrical pirate adventure about a legendary Shanty! more »

    Originally an epic tabletop board game, Warhammer Quest has always been a great tactical adventure game. But in the hands of Rodeo Games, the tactical game experts behind Hunters and Hunters 2, it becomes one of the most polished and fun strategy RPG's around, with great art, loads of lore, and a simple but well written story. There are some annoying quirks to the game, but this really has it all, and should not be skipped. more »

    One of the greatest strengths of App Store games has always been intuitive and innovative control schemes. Virtual buttons, even when done well, tend to be frustrating. Especially in a genre like beat'em ups. The Game Bakers, developers of the Squids games, are well aware of this, and it shows in their latest title, Combo Crew. more »

    Gameloft is back with a brand new shooter, and it's called Blitz Brigade. Actually, the full title is Blitz Brigade - Online multiplayer shooting action!, because Gameloft has forgotten what subtlety is. A freemium, primarily online multiplayer game, this is Gameloft's long awaited take on Team Fortress 2, with all the fun classes and unlockables you'd expect to find within. While it's a great looking game, with colorful visuals, and smooth, refined gunplay, the primary component, as of this writing, is pretty much broken. The server stability is seriously lacking, and actually playing online is very hard to do. more »

    I feel confident in saying that the world was not ready for the magic of Robot Unicorn Attack back in 2010. The game is ridiculously addictive and topped [adult swim]'s charts for the longest time and made Erasure a household name. It had some spin-offs and a quasi-sequel in "Evolution" on the web, but now, PikPok is here to bring us a fully fledged sequel, with a '2' on the end and everything! As a side note, I'm glad PikPok was given this job. They've definitely got the chops for this kind of game. more »

    When your pedigree of games includes Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride, pretty much everything you release from then on will have certain expectations, and will probably see some measure of success. It's times like these that a developer has the freedom to really experiment and try some new things, and that's exactly what Halfbrick Studios has done with their charming new title, Fish Out Of Water!. more »

    The Dungeon Hunter series from Gameloft has a sordid and controversial history, and it's about to get worse. The first two games, while not paragons of the dungeon crawling genre, were well made and fun to play. Then, Dungeon Hunter 3 came along and introduced freemium elements alongside a more fast paced twin stick combat style in what was essentially Gun Bros. in a Diablo type setting. Now, with Dungeon Hunter 4 we're back to a fully fledged game with a plot, decent voice acting, and all the rest, but the freemium elements have been ratcheted up to a comical degree. more »

  • The Other Brothers

    Since a certain plumber named Mario completed his apotheosis and ascended to the official seat of Platforming God decades ago, there have been tons, and I mean tons, of imitators. But every now and then, you get less of an imitation and more of an homage, and even less of the time, those homages happen to be really fun games. The Other Brothers from 3D Attack Interactive and Simian Squared is just such a game, with tight platforming and some of the most eye popping hand painted pixel art this side of Brooklyn. The controls really hold the rest of the game back, but they aren't bad enough to ignore this platforming gem. more »
