Here’s an unlikely pairing: Imangi Studios and NFLPlayers Inc. are teaming up to bring real NFL players to Temple Run 2. Temple Run 2, of course, is one of the best endless running games around. With its Indiana Jones-style trappings, it seems an odd game to put football players in. But hey, the game already has Usain Bolt, so what’s a few quarterbacks? (more…)
It seems like only yesterday we attended the iPhone 6 event, but Apple has already sent out invitations to its next event, scheduled for October 16. That’s next week! The invitation has the words “It’s been way too long” on it, which is kind of funny since the last event wasn’t even a month ago. But I digress. (more…)
If you’re looking for a showcase game for iOS, you could do a lot worse — seriously, a lot worse — than The Room Two, a dark, moody game of environmental puzzles that looks as great as it plays. Seriously, this game is ingeniously constructed. And best of all, it’s on sale for a buck, which means you have no excuse not to grab it. (more…)
The Pokemon collectible card game we first got a look at during PAX Prime is now available for the iPad — and we’ve got a special exclusive code to get some freebies in the game.
Pokemon TCG Online combines the massive collection urge of the Pokemon universe with an online card battler in great fashion and it’s available now in the App Store.
Use the code SLIDE-TO-PLAY-POKEMON-TCGO-TODAY in the game to get access to one random pack from a number of recent Pokémon TCG expansions including Pokémon TCG: Black & White‹Legendary Treasures, Pokémon TCG: XY, XY‹Flashfire, or XY‹Furious Fists.
To say we’re fans of the Reckless Racing series is something of an understatement. We gave the original game a 3 back in 2010, and its top-notch sequel a 4 in 2012. Another two years have passed, so it’s about time a third installment landed on the App Store. Better yet, you’ll be able to play it Thursday. (more…)
Skylanders Trap Team is the new game in the Skylanders universe and the first to be released day and date on the iPad along with the console version. Not only that, but it’s the same game. This is a first, as far as we know, for any game.
Skylanders is also known as the first game that pairs a video game with a collectible hardware element. Skylanders figures and other pieces are used to change the game and provide new characters to play. This is done through the Portal of Power, a $75 Bluetooth base that also includes a joystick that can be used for the game. Also included with the Portal of Power are a couple figures to use in the game. These figures are placed on the base and through the magic of NFC appear in the game.
And you thought it would never happen, didn’t you? Pokémon, one of the jewels of Nintendo’s portfolio, has landed on the App Store in the form of Pokémon TCG Online, an iPad-only card game. This is a big deal! (more…)
