Danger Alliance: Battles Review

"Danger Alliance: Battles" clearly illustrates the potential of the Turn-Based Strategy genre on iOS, proving that strategic depth can go hand in hand with a rock solid interface. Those concerned about the content-to-price ratio may very well be surprised by how long this one keeps their attention, thanks to skillful deployment of its limited assets....

Battle Group Review

If you had asked me a week ago whether I'd ever give a rail shooter a perfect score during my game reviewing career, I would have said not to bet on it -- a game in this genre has to do a lot to make up for the player's lack of exploratory freedom, after all, and I'd played very few that managed such a feat.

Private Joe: Urban Warfare Review

Just when we're gearing up for the Halloween season, a number of iOS videogame characters are suiting up in military attire. Here to kick off this week's armed forces-themed coverage is "Private Joe: Urban Warfare," a port of a popular browser game coded in a language we don't see often on iOS -- HTML5!...
