It’s been another excellent month for iOS gaming, with A+ games like the novel reinvention of the console series Hitman Go and the Escher-esque puzzle game Monument Valley. But really, one title stands out as the genre-defining game of the month: Blizzard’s Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. (more…)
As usual, December was a great month for iOS gamers, with big games dropping every week (at least until the yearly week-long App Store shutdown over Christmas). But one game in particular blew us away with its moody atmosphere and excellent design, so we had to give it this month’s highest honor. The game is The Room Two. (more…)
Things are heating up as the year comes to a close. November was a fantastic month for iOS gamers, with a huge number of Must Have titles hitting the App Store. So whether you wanted to build a Death Star or run and jump as Mickey Mouse, the App Store had you covered. But there can be only one Game of the Month, and November’s is Oceanhorn by Cornfox & Bros. (more…)
October was another fine month for iOS gamers, with a number of notable titles coming out across a variety of genres. So whether you wanted to kill gorgeously rendered zombies or drive a race car, the App Store had you covered. But there can be only one Game of the Month, and this month it’s Device 6. (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. (more…)
This year is shaping up to be incredible for iOS gamers, and we’re only halfway through it. Whether you wanted to cozy up with a fantasy gamebook or play a fantastic twist on the otherwise tired match-3 genre, June had you covered. Our favorite game of June was an iOS port of the massive strategy game XCOM: Enemy Unknown. (more…)
The streak continues: May was yet another great month for iOS gamers. If you wanted a summer camp adventure or a retro shooter, you needed to look no further than the nearest iOS device. But it was a particularly great month for ports. Our favorite game in May was an iPad port of a bonafide classic, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. (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. (more…)
