So if you have the time and disk space, there’s no reason not to grab them up. But who knows how long the good times will last, so if you’ve been holding out, download them ASAP. Read More
It’s a good time to be a Sonic fan. The original Sonic the Hedgehog was first ported over to iOS in 2009 by SEGA. The game is an undeniable classic, but the port suffered from janky controls and a terrible framerate. Thankfully, an update released today–that we detailed back in March–fixes what ailed the classic platformer. This is no iterative update. This is a massive, from-the-ground-up rebuilding of the game.

Social game behemoth King announced today that Pet Rescue Saga is coming to iOS and Android. Maybe you’ve already played it on Facebook, since the match-3 title currently boasts over six million daily players. You should still give it a try on mobile, though, because if you don’t save the wee turtles, who will? Read More
Social crime games have been popular for a while now, and Arms Cartel Global is the perfect example of the genre. The game focuses heavily on completing tasks to build up your bank, which lets you buy more weapons and a larger army of thugs. While this seems similar to other games we’ve reviewed, the disappointing part is there isn’t a single thing we haven’t seen before. Not a thing. We didn’t notice a new mechanic or feature. It’s just a different paint job on a recycled game. Read More
When the Angry Birds movie arrives in 2016, it will not be delivered by slingshot. Distribution is being handled by Sony Pictures Entertainment, and it will be an earthbound procedure.

Brr. Feel that chill wind? It’s from EA. The company has posted a bit of official information about its “Frostbite Go” engine, which is apparently coming to all major mobile platforms.
There’s a lot to be said for simplicity and style, and Impossible Road has both in spades. You control a white ball; your goal is to stay on a winding, randomly-generated road for as long as possible. The graphics are sparse and appealing, and the controls feel great. But unlike many endless runners, whose heroes start off moving slowly, Impossible Road kicks into high gear from the start. Impossible is right. Read More
Random Heroes made its statement on the App Store not too long ago, and it immediately grabbed our attention with its retro graphics, gloriously violent shuffles, and love for side-scrolling platform shooters. Random Heroes 2 feels very much like a continuation of the same game, and while to some that may be a bad thing, we can’t get enough. Read More
