The Simpsons Arcade

The basic game play is fairly repetitive. Kill a bunch of henchman and move along. There are some weapons to use including a boomerang, baseball bat, etc and Homer can do 4 or 5 different fighting moves but there aren’t any big surprises…

iPhone and iPod Touch – Games of the Year (2009)

Though this site hasn’t been around too long, this reviewer has been playing iPhone games for quite a while. In fact, I have probably logged hundreds of hours in iPhone gameplay this year (much to my wife’s chagrin). All of that gameplay allowed me to get a good feel for what is out there and to come up with a list of the iPhone Gamer Blog’s top 5 games of the year…

Need for Speed: Shift

It wasn’t long ago I heard that NFS: Shift would be coming to the iPhone. Ever since, I have looked forward to seeing the type of adaptation it would get from EA Mobile. The console game is universally adored and I went into this review hoping for the same, almost expecting to be disappointed. Especially since EA Mobile’s track record has been mediocre at best. So what did I find?

Modern Combat: Sandstorm

If your expecting to read about a watered down version of the console Call of Duty(by Activision) games, Modern Combat: Sandstorm is in every way, shape and form what you would expect it to be. Its missions are so worn that I can clearly remember thinking, I wonder where the car chase scene is going to happen…

Rail Adventures

Rail Adventures uses a good premise for a game. The setting: You’re an Indiana Jones-like character in a mining shaft on a rail cart trying to escape the “mountains before it’s too late.” Along the way you can pick up gold, shoot monsters and jump over obstacles. It has all of the makings of a fun pick up and play game but unfortunately the game doesn’t use its fine premise in an effective way…

Boxed In 2

Boxed In 2 will give you hours of enjoyment, 50 levels in all, for just a buck. By far one of the most entertaining and worthwhile games of the year. Amazingly enough, this game was developed almost entirely by a 2 man shop…

N.O.V.A Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance

N.O.V.A starts off its single player mode with some decent looking cut scenes and with some half thought out story about aliens in the future. I have no problem with this. Just a typical sci-fi plot. The first thing you’ll notice as you go through the opening tutorial level is that it’s pretty. In fact, the graphics are among the best…

Doom: Resurrection

Doom: Resurrection is a tough game to judge. It has quite a few good qualities but one major downside, especially when comparing it to other first person shooters on the iPhone…
