They range from kid-friendly fare like Sly Fox and Happy Squirrels to more mature action-RPGs like Orc: Vengeance.

Slide To Play Q and A: rComplex

When we first saw rComplex, we thought it looked like a stylish auto-runner. Then we played it right when it came out, and the game’s performance left something to be desired. The development team heard players’ cries, and quickly pushed out an update that improved the experience quite a bit. But they’re not done with the game yet. We caught up with Igor Raffaele, the general manager of InterWave Studios, to talk about the future of this gorgeous running game. (more…)

At a press event in late October, we had a chance to go hands-on with a number of upcoming Ubisoft iOS games.

We spoke with Nathanial Tam, designer for MJ: The Experience, about what to expect when the game launches this Thursday for $4.99. (more…)

Earlier this year, we chatted with Egg Ball, the indie team behind A Moon For The Sky and Patchworld, about their company’s style and background. We thought it was time to check in with them for an update on Jazz, a unique platformer with music/rhythm elements set in 1920s New Orleans and co-developed by Bulkypix. Here’s what Egg Ball CEO Julien Victor, directors Nicolas Badoux and Louis Lim, and designer Simon Abitan had to say about Jazz. (more…)
