Meltdown on Mars THD: A tale of two genres

Spend hours on the game only to realize you've played the same game under another tittle? Not really. If you've played Gun Bros or Dead on Arriv ... Full Article »

Android App Video Review: Shogun: Bullet Hell Shooter

The story is just as generic, ridiculous, and over the top as any good bullet hell shooter should be, but I’ll just skip the potatoes and move on to the meat of the game, a.k.a. the gameplay.

The four tables initially available are Ripley's Believe It or Not, Black Hole, Theater of Magic, and Tales of the Arabian Nights.

Rock ’em Sock ’em Robots delivers a chip off the old block

Think back to the thrilling days of yesteryear. I’m talking wearing PJs and playing games with siblings on Saturday morning. Rock ’em Sock ’em Robots would be appropriate for many such memories. It sure is for me. This memory is now available for only 99 cents, and it’s certainly worth that ... Full Article »

Android App Video Review: Iron Wars

The game has you playing as random robotic rolling balls designed for combat and death. There is a campaign mode, as well as quick play and local multiplayer.

What’s angrier than an angry bird? A fire-breathing dragon whose babies have been kidnapped. In Snappy Dragons, evil (and very shortsighted) red wizards have kidnapped a dragon’s offspring and hidden them in a magical landscape. The game’s a red-hot blast of fun, and probably will be a big hit ... Full Article »

Android App Video Review: INC

The story here has to do with post apocalyptic futures under corporate rule with people's souls being transferred into robot bodies and all sorts of fun nonsense.
