The key to any great strategy game is that once it hooks you, a new challenge begins: the battle to stop playing! Who hasn’t strategically kept a Word document a mouse-click away to hide a tense round of Tetris when the boss walks by? Or couldn’t stop seeing Minesweeper flags surround the characters of The Hurt Locker? And admit it, the only reason you stay in touch so well with grandma is to own her ass in online Mahjong! Just me…?

Super Streaker Pro

It’s rare that a title bursts into our lives which is so outrageously offensive that it just might be unbelievably entertaining. The World Cup is in full swing, and as the international community celebrates their unifying pastime, many developers are creating intricate, imaginative soccer games in an attempt to capitalize on the epic event. What does Nemoid Studios do? They piece together a completely insane game featuring a deranged, naked fan whose ultimate goal is to slaughter players and security guards with an arsenal of wild weapon choices...

Super QuickHook

When the successor to one of our favorite games to last year was announced, we were understandably delighted. Now that I have had the chance to play it for several hours, I can say it easily lives up to my high expectations and in some ways surpasses them. Super QuickHook is the sequel to last year's critically acclaimed Hook Champ. While the gameplay mechanics are similar in many ways, a few distinct additions and additions by subtraction have been added that make the game all the sweeter. Add in the terrific, updated graphics and it is truly a game that is worth getting...

Tunnel Shoot

Tunnel Shoot, a joint effort from Backflip Studios and Team Phobic, takes you on a fast paced space ride through a tunnel. The only way to make it out alive is to battle your way through the endless swarm of enemies in your way. Strike that, you can’t really make it out alive. You just keep going until you eventually lose. Nevertheless, the end result is all about the journey. This journey is a bit of a hit and miss...

Slap Word

By |2011-07-10T23:08:08-05:00June 30, 2010|iPhone Reviews|

Slap Word is basically an 11 level word search game without rules when it comes to making a word. You can go forward, backwards, and diagonal. This is starting to sound like the Wonkavator (Editor: For those not in the know, that’s Willy Wonka’s magical elevator). You can go in any direction at any time as long as the letters are connected (this isn’t entirely true but for the sake of the game it is). You can even jump over letters you have already used. It’s honestly a no holds barred word search game...

I’m going to be honest with you. I don’t really get this game. I’ve been playing it for over an hour nonstop and I just don’t get it. The object of the game, I think, is to organize candy in specific patterns. Symmetry plays a role as well but I’m not sure how. Do I organize the candy by type and try to keep the board symmetrical or do I mix and match the candy to come up with elaborate patterns?

Down 4 the Count

By |2011-07-10T23:08:18-05:00June 30, 2010|iPhone Reviews|

Jab. Jab. Hook. Boxing games have always been around but most have been a swing and a miss, pun intended. Down 4 the Count, from the developers at Astraware, is not one of those games. With style that is similar to the best boxing game of all time, Mike Tyson’s Punch Out, but also superb controls and gameplay, Down 4 the Count is a hit. Yes, also intended...
