Wild West Guns does exactly one thing, and it does it well: shooting! While we don’t think this is one of the best games on the App Store or anything–it’s a bit light on content for such accolades–it’s plenty entertaining for what it is. Action gamers looking for a solid shootout won’t be disappointed here. (more…)

We’re genuinely sorry to tell you that ExZeus isn’t as cool as it looks, because it looks positively awesome. It immediately reminded us of Iron Man: Aerial Assault, one of our favorite games on the App Store. It’s similar in goal and design–you control a flying robot (you have your choice of 3, and they’re actually different from one another, which we love), and blast lots of enemies to powder from an over-the-shoulder viewpoint, using tilt controls to steer and touching the screen to fire. Alas, ExZeus’s confusing, uneven gameplay keeps it from reaching its full potential. (more…)

Time Crisis Strike is an on-rails shooter that attempts to bring the fast-paced action of the Time Crisis arcade games (played with a light gun) to the iPhone. As in the arcade version, you don’t control the direction or angle of your viewpoint–all the camera work is taken care of for you. You do, however, swap a lot of bullets with soon-to-be-dead terrorists by tapping all over the screen. There’s lots of enjoyable gunplay in Time Crisis Strike, but we felt that the brevity of the game didn’t match up with its price. (more…)
i Sniper takes an interesting concept and a charmingly flippant attitude and manages to turn it into a completely awful game. We’re almost impressed by how badly this game turned out… but then we thought about some of the more creative failures we’ve played recently, and decided that iSniper doesn’t even rate on that scale. Just stay away from it. (more…)

When you play an especially high quality game, you know immediately. Oftentimes, it’s not even obvious to you why you’re responding so positively, but the little things you’ve subconsciously picked up on start becoming clear the more you play. Think of it like driving a luxury car–if you throw a BMW M3 in gear, you might not know the details of the engine or drive train or even the material of the steering wheel… but you can instantly tell that it just feels right.

Burning Tires 3D is another in a long line of App Store racing games. At this point, most developers seem to know that landscape layout, accelerometer controls and scaling ability of the iDevice makes it ideal to bang out a fast racing game to try to turn a profit. (more…)
We’re not sure the games we enjoy playing translate well to a television experience. For instance, the recent TV version of Crossword is epically boring. Similarly, Wheel of Fortune and The Price is Right both lose considerable entertainment value when played alone. Deal or No Deal: Million Dollar Challenge, the official App Store version of the hit game show, turns out to be nowhere near as exciting on the iPhone’s screen as it is on TV. (more…)

1112: Episode 1: Episode 1 is a first-person adventure game with an unusual art-house feel. It doesn’t play like most other adventure games we’ve seen; in fact, if you pressed us, we might call it a “tapping detective game,” since you tap around the screen so often. (more…)
Iron Man is a pretty sweet movie. Not as complex or nuanced as The Dark Knight, or as emotional as Spider-Man, but it was definitely worth seeing. So, as a major studio tie-in to a blockbuster film, Iron Man: Aerial Assault has a pretty lofty standard to adhere to. (more…)
We’re big fans of the Zed word. From Dawn of the Dead to Shaun of the Dead, from 28 Weeks Later, to Left 4 Dead, to the Zombie-themed playlists on Halo 3, we love it all. Zombies are always fun, and seeing what twists each new variation brings to the old formula is pretty interesting. Until we played Zombie Mansion, that is. We come not to praise Zombie Mansion, but to bury it. (more…)
