First Look: SHADOWGUN & New Video Footage!

Wow. Just... wow. Shadowgun, Madfinger Games' eagerly awaited follow-up to the critically lauded Samurai II: Vengeance, looks like all kinds of awesome. Madfinger are promising this Unity Engine-powered third-person shooter will usher in "a new visual standard for handheld gaming," and having just watched a brief video clip of the upcoming title in action, I'm inclined to believe them....

Diversion Review

No interface? No problem! After learning how limited the player's input options are in the Edis Brothers' "Diversion," I went in determined to loathe it. Instead, after a few hours leaping, sliding, shimmying, gliding and climbing through its levels, I came out on the other side a firm believer. Behold the running game to end all running games!...

City of Secrets Review

This console quality offering from Aidem Media is so easy to jump into, yet so satisfyingly varied and content-packed, that it easily straddles the border between casual and hardcore appeal. It feels sinfully underpriced on the iPhone and iPod Touch, but don't worry; we won't tell anyone should you happen to indulge....

iGADGET In-Depth Review

Many classic games from the 1990s deserve reincarnation and a new chance to shine on the iOS, but sadly, GADGET might not be one of them. While it's easy to see how this interactive movie-of-sorts marked a critical turning point in videogame history when first released in 1993, its content suffers from critical design flaws laid all too bare by the test of time....

Paleolithics Review

Hunting and gathering has never been this much fun! You'd never know it from its ultra-streamlined premise and unembellished Stone Age aesthetic, but "Paleolithics" is easily one of the most compelling ninety-nine cent offerings on the App Store right now. It's got that rare mix of family friendliness (in a manner of speaking), simple controls, and most importantly, game design that hits the ball right out of the park....
