iPad Games to Raise the Bar – and the Price

By |2010-03-28T09:23:21-05:00March 27, 2010|Features|

Two months ago I wrote about iPad games. I stated that they would cost more their iPhone/iPod Touch counterparts when they were released. At the time of that article, there were quite a few naysayers. [gloating ]Call me Nostradamus because I was right [/gloating]. Touchreviews.net has an article on the iPad games that have been announced and all of them are quite a bit more expensive that their iDevice brethren...

Who Needs 4G? Opera Mini Browser Doubles Loading Speed on iPhone

By |2010-03-26T13:45:32-05:00March 26, 2010|Features|

The iPhone may not be 4G enabled anytime soon but the Opera Mini browser that has recently been submitted to Apple may make it a bit of a moot point. While 4G offers greater download speeds, the Opera Mini browser handles each page quite a bit differently than your standard Safari browser does..

The iPhone 4G/iPhone HD – Not Coming to Sprint, Maybe Verizon

By |2010-03-25T09:15:33-05:00March 25, 2010|Features|

With Sprint's announcement yesterday (3/24/2010) of the first 4G phone stateside, the new playing field was set. Offering much higher download speeds, the HTC Evo 4g, is the first 4G handset that has been announced by a major US carrier. The phone itself isn't half bad either. A Google Android-based OS with a 4.3 inch screen, a Micro SD card slot that’s capacity is up to 32 GB, and an 8.3 megapixel camera make it a formidable foe...

Final Fantasy

By |2011-07-10T23:15:31-05:00March 22, 2010|iPhone Reviews|

Final Fantasy made its way to the iPhone and iPod Touch world late last month. This version is based on the PSP game of the same name, not the NES version from 1987 (1990 US release). Without a doubt there have been a tremendous number of advances since its first iteration. I'll skip the story and the pretense. If you’re reading this review you know all about the series and how popular it has been. You probably are already playing Final Fantasy 13...

In case you missed it last year, Peggle is a one of a kind iPhone and iPod Touch gaming experience. I have been holding off on the review because I have been trying to think of a way to best describe it. Basically you shoot a ball out of a cannon towards a series of pegs that as are grouped in a variety of manners...

Are Civilization 5 and Command and Conquer 4 – iPad Bound?

By |2010-03-20T13:05:59-05:00March 20, 2010|Features|

There are 3 different genres of games that I think we will see come to and/or be improved by the iPad. These games don't really work as well on an iPhone or iPod Touch. The reason, the screen is simply too small and there are too many things going on. In fact, many of these types of games that have been released on the App Store in the past really are more complicated than a 3 inch handheld allows. With the iPad’s larger screen, you not only have a much larger visual but you also have a lot more room for virtual controls...

3bot Preview for iPhone and iPod Touch

By |2010-03-24T16:34:43-05:00March 19, 2010|Previews, Videos|

3bot is described as a 3d action/puzzle game. Based on some of the videos, this looks like something new and unique coming to the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch in the near future. No word on when it is coming but my bet is on it likely being released on or near the release of the iPad (April 4)...

SimCity Deluxe Preview (Now with SimCity 4 Graphics)

By |2010-03-18T15:38:55-05:00March 18, 2010|Previews|

SimCity Deluxe was announced for the iPhone/iPod Touch today. One of my all time favorite gaming franchises will feature updated graphics, smoother gameplay and a ton of new content. This will be the second time SimCity hits the App Store. It's initial release was well very well received and had millions of downloads...
