September saw a number of big game releases, particularly new installments of existing franchises. But one game in particular took some risks and exceeded our expectations, and that’s why we’re giving it Game of the Month. The game is Call of Duty: Strike Team. Read More
Putting all of July’s Must Have games together in a list made me realize that July 2013 was one of the biggest months in the history of iOS gaming. An unbelievable number of great titles hit the App Store, including ports (Limbo, Sine Mora), remakes (Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded, Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame), new installments in established series (Layton Brothers Mystery Room, Magic 2014), and new titles entirely (Bloodmasque, Kamikaze Pigs). But there can be only one Game of the Month, and this month it’s Plants Vs. Zombies 2. Read More
Developers have been pumping out loads of great games this year, and April was no exception. Whether you wanted to play a huge, classic RPG like Final Fantasy V, or get the wits scared out of you with Eyes – The Horror Game, the App Store had you covered. But only one game can receive our coveted prize for April, and this month it’s Badland.
March was a busy month for iOS gamers! At last week’s Game Developers Conference, we had a chance to see all kinds of new games and talk to developers about their pricing and marketing strategies. In our discussions, one game kept getting mentioned as an example of how to stand out in a sea of clones and still find success on the App Store: Ridiculous Fishing.
February turned out to be a pretty slow month for Must Have games here at Slide To Play. Still, we handed out Must Have scores to five titles, and one of them stands above the rest. It’s a racing game that may not take place on a large scale, but it packs all the fun and excitement of a great kart racer and shrinks it down to the size of Micro Machines. Our Game of the Month for February 2013 is Table Top Racing, by Playrise Digital. Read More
Traditionally, December is a big month for iOS gaming, and this year it did not disappoint. Many of the best games released this month were ports from other consoles, and our top pick originally came out a decade ago for PlayStation 2. To this day, it remains one of the most lauded and best-selling games of all time. Read More
Between the Presidential election, Thanksgiving, and hundreds of new iOS games, November has been a very eventful month. Angry Birds Star Wars may have been the talk of the turkey table at Thanksgiving, but it’s a stylish, Western-themed combat game that earns one of our site’s highest honors. Read More
As we approach the holidays, we’re going to start seeing a lot more licensed games and big-budget originals hit the App Store. For September’s Game of the Month winner and runner-up, we’ve got one of each: a console hero returning to iOS, and a one-of-a-kind mobile game that you won’t find anywhere else. Read More
On the App Store, there’s no such thing as a summer slump. Sure, things heat up around the holidays, but awesome new games arrive every day throughout the year. In July, we played some of the best iOS games ever made, but only one managed to feel like both a familiar classic and a cutting-edge, modern game: Fieldrunners 2. Read More
iOS is one of the most vibrant video game platforms out there, with a crazy number of excellent games releasing every month. In June we played a lot of great titles, including an elegantly simple two-player board game (OLO Game) and an adventure title that addresses horror and darkness in a way we rarely see (Yesterday). But it was a card battling game that earned our Game of the Month award for June. Magic 2013 is all we’d hoped it would be and more. Read More
