    After 3+ Years, EA Finally Updates NBA Jam

    In spite of the game having a nearly permanent spot on the top 25 games on iOS, EA had failed to update NBA Jam since 2011. Yup, one of the best selling games on iOS existed in iPhone 4 screen sizes since 2011. Well it’s finally updated, and from the report at TA, it is faster, looks way better, and is smooth.

    BOOMSHAKALAKA!

    Must Read: “The Last Game I Make Before I Die” on TA

    Great read from Sam Coster, one third of Butterscotch Shenanigans about his fight with cancer and the drive to build the game he’s always wanted to build.

    Cancer is a great clarifier. It stripped out all the petty, superfluous aspects of life and demanded just three things when it struck me in 2013: survive, find meaning, and figure out how to look good bald.
    This is the story of Crashlands, a massive 2D action-RPG crafting game I’ve been working on with my two brothers since I was diagnosed at the ripe age of 23 with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.

    Doctor Who: Legacy Expanded with 8-Bit Adventure “Bigger on the Inside”

    Doctor Who: Legacy is one of my favorites of the match-3 RPG genre. It’s great to see the game repeatedly updated and expanded. This update brings a whole new adventure game that takes place inside the Tardis. Titled “Bigger on the Inside,” this 8-bit inspired mini-game looks amazing.
