One of the more interesting little gems I saw at E3 was from Polish developer Teyon Games. Crazy Chicken: Pirates is a casual iOS game that draws upon the Moorhhuhn universe, which is very popular Germany. The distinct visual style of the game is eye-catching, but the gameplay offers an interesting fusion of Where’s Waldo and Duck Hunt. Crazy combination, right? I thought so too. (more…)

Zynga is marking the occasion with the release of Solstice Arena, its own entry in the hugely popular multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) genre. Solstice Arena, available now for iPhone and iPad, aims to let both hardcore and casual MOBA fans engage in fierce battles with friends and enemies alike. (more…)
I took a stop by the Warner Bros Interactive booth to check out what’s on display. Was it a bird? A plane? No, it’s licensed mobile game attempting to leverage the excitement around the new Superman movie! (more…)
The FIFA franchise has historically offered a great simulation of soccer on mobile. For the most part, the essential gameplay and feature modes tend to closely mirror its console brother. FIFA 13 was an elegant and satisfying soccer game we loved. Naturally, I was eager to see what an extra year can do for the best portable soccer game around. In FIFA 14, the series makes bold moves to rethink how soccer should be played on a portable device. (more…)
In the upcoming game Cut the Rope: Time Travel, cute little Om Nom discovers a time machine that lets him access various periods in history. Luckily for him, candy has been around a while. The game doesn’t come out until Thursday, but we got our hands on an early copy and took it for a spin. Check out our hands-on video below. (more…)
We first got our hands on Halfbrick’s Fish Out of Water last month, but with the game’s imminent release we thought we’d show you what it’s all about. Fans of the developer’s previous games, Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride, might be surprised by how laid-back it is compared to those games. Watch the video below. (more…)
In case the title isn’t clear enough for you, this is a game about boxing monkeys. With two buttons, it’s about as simple as games get, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth a look. Check out our hands-on video below. (more…)
In the last year, iOS games like Lili and Horn have shown us that epic action-adventure games are, in fact, possible on a touchscreen. Soon, we may be able to add another single-word title to the list: Spiral, an intriguing, futuristic game with outstanding Unreal Engine graphics and animation.
Yesterday we took a look at the upcoming free-to-play shooter The Drowning in a hands-on preview. Today we’ve got hands-on video footage of the game, with commentary. So watch the video and imagine all the zombie heads you’re going to explode when The Drowning hits App Stores worldwide in the near future. (more…)
The Drowning, a unique free-to-play shooter we’ve had our eye on for a while, has just been released in New Zealand and Australia. We’re not sure when it will land in the U.S., but we took the game for a spin. Read on to find out what to expect when this post-apocalyptic game hits an App Store near you. (more…)
At GDC last week, we had a chance to go hands-on with the first free Tetris game for iOS, Tetris Blitz. Similar to other Blitz games like Bejeweled Blitz and Solitaire Blitz, Tetris Blitz will let you play for a limited amount of time in order to reach a high score that you can brag about on Facebook.
The developers of Trolls vs. Vikings don’t make any excuses about the game’s resemblance to Plants vs. Zombies. They look at PopCap’s modern classic as the start of a new sub-genre of tower defense games. To them, Trolls vs. Vikings simply fits in that genre. We’ll have to wait until it comes out to judge, but our main concern is whether or not Trolls vs. Vikings adds enough of its own to make it worth playing. (more…)
