Review: Galaga 30th Collection

Subtitle: 
Four Games: Because They Didn’t Do Patches/Updates Back Then
thumbnail_summary: 
Galaga is a game that gives a smile to anyone who grew up visiting arcades, but unfortunately Galaga 30th Collection for the iPhone isn’t diverse enough in gameplay from game to game to warrant the cost, especially with the sometimes frustrating control scheme.

Review: Dead Space for iPhone

Subtitle: 
Big Scares On A Tiny Screen
thumbnail_summary: 
As far as bringing the feeling and expectations of a console game to a smart phone and tablet, EA has done it a little too well and has consequently spoiled us in our expectations of what app games can do.

“For best experience use headphones.”

This experience includes having the breath scared out of you, watching bodies thrown across corridors with their splattering sound in comfortable balance between your ears and having every bullet fired echo across your mind.

Review: Bejeweled 3

Subtitle: 
Matching Three Remains Addictive
thumbnail_summary: 
If you've played games in the 8 years or so, be it on a phone, console or PC, you've probably run across Bejeweled in some form before. The series has derived huge success due to the beautifully simple and yet super-addicting mechanic of swapping adjacent gems to form sets of three or more.

If you've played games in the 8 years or so, be it on a phone, console or PC, you've probably run across Bejeweled in some form before. The series has derived huge success due to the beautifully simple and yet super-addicting mechanic of swapping adjacent gems to form sets of three or more. PopCap didn't risk the core mechanic of the game when it came time to build a sequel, so Bejeweled 2 simply added new modes that worked with the same gameplay in slightly different degrees.

Dead Space Coming To iPhone/iPad

DeadSpaceiPhone.jpg

Bridging the gap between the original Dead Space and its coming sequel, EA has announced an iOS game to be released in January.

The game was built to look like the console games; you'll control Isaac as he delves into the mines of Titan, fighting off necromorphs in a console-like 3D space. The game includes the bloodied violence you'd expect from the series, though it remains to be seen whether Apple will attempt to have it cleaned up a bit before release.

Mini-Review: Angry Birds Halloween

AngryBirdsHalloween1.jpg

Angry Birds has risen to be the top game in the app game market, selling a ridiculous amount on the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad, with recent releases on Android, the Palm, the Nokia N900, and an upcoming release on PSP.

But instead of simply adding a couple of Halloween-themed levels in an update, Angry Birds has released a separate app exclusive to the iOS Apple apps, with 45 new spooky levels based on the addictive original and GameCenter integration for achievements and leaderboards.

Mini-Review: Cut The Rope

Gaming on the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad has become more and more refined, and games like Cut The Rope show off just how polished a touch screen game can be. 

Developed by Zeptolab and published by Chillingo, Cut The Rope puts you in charge of feeding candy to a cute creature that lives in a box. The catch is you can only feed him by lowering the candy from a rope.

Mini-Review: Cat Physics

CatPhysics1.jpg

One rule of the wild is that cats love to play with a ball. This is the premise behind Cat Phyiscs, a standout puzzle game on the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. This game may be several months old but it’s a game worth playing if you haven’t already, especially because Donut Games has recently added 20 free levels to its original 50 through an update.
