    Changing of the Guard at Slide To Play

    Slide To Play launched in September 2008 amid the excitement of a smartphone revolution. The site’s founders — Steve, Adam, Jeremy, and Conor — wanted to build a reliable review network for a new type of video game.

        SXPD Review

        In the future, America’s roadways are policed by a squad of tough, all-female motorcycle cops called the SXPD. Is this title shorthand for the Sexy Police Department?

        Metal Slug Defense Review

        The Metal Slug games from SNK Playmore are pixelated perfection if you enjoy run-and-gun arcade games. With their fluid animation, expressive characters, and intense action, each classic Metal Slug game is more exciting than the last. We’ve previously reviewed Metal Slug 1, 2, and 3 on iOS, and now a new adaptation called Metal Slug Defense mixes elements from all three in a creative format optimized for mobile devices.



        Godzilla – Smash3 Review

        In the new Godzilla movie, Godzilla is a savior of humanity more than an unstoppable monster.

            Trilobyte Games Currently Crowdfunding Another Sequel to The 7th Guest

            For gamers of a certain age, CD-Rom games like Myst and The 7th Guest were revolutionary. Instead of loading up your PC game with a half-dozen floppy disks, you only needed one shiny disc containing hours of full-motion video and dozens of pre-rendered backgrounds. Following up on their announcement in March, Trilobyte has launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise the necessary funds for a new 7th Guest game.  (more…)

              Activision Announces Tony Hawk’s Shred Session for iOS and Android

              In the world of virtual skateboarding, there’s no name with as much street cred as Tony Hawk. Arguably the best extreme sports game ever made, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 already came to iOS in 2010. It was a full PlayStation game, but with clunky virtual controls placed right on top of the touchscreen.
