Flappy Bird has been the talk of the town, and it's time to officially weigh-in and see if it's worth the controversy, hype and broken screens.
Dong Nguyen, creator of the hit mobile game, Flappy Bird, has announced that he will be pulling the title from stores on Feb. 9.
Get ready to unwrap a bunch of deals on the Xbox Marketplace as the Countdown to 2014 Sale continues with some of PopCap's best games, as well as some special offers that will last until Dec. 31.
Do you like video games, but you're tired of all the pesky gameplay, production values, and fun? Well, then, check out Big Win Racing, an app from Hothead Games which strips away all that to leave you with a Nascar-flavored virtual slot machine that's hungry for your money and offers you nothing in return.
Circus Life is a strange little game that comes to us from a new, European developer called Dolce Vita Games. As you might expect, the game deals with life under the big top, which is perfect since the founder and CEO of Dolce Vita Games is Irina Vaganova, the daughter of a gymnast and a horse handler who was raised in the Russian circus.
Mobile game movie tie-ins can be instantly forgettable, as these apps' sole purpose is to plug the feature's impending release. Anchorman 2: Scotchy Scotch Toss is far from an ambitious foray, but Ron Burgundy's sheer presence should save the day.
Mr. Montgomery's Debonair Facial Hair's recent App Store release comes smack dab in the middle of Movember, and one can't fault Hunted Cow for their perfect timing. Upon first blush, trimming and reshaping mustaches could be amusing for one's initial go round, but can a facial hair centric title get past its novelty?
Since my switch to iOS gaming, Chillingo has been a first rate publisher of addicting apps. When Fright Heights swung my way, I assumed another dependable and great experience was in the offing. But one never truly knows with free to play titles, and a well executed adventure may be ruined by freemium excess. But Halloween is just around the corner, and maybe this title had a few tricks and treats up its sleeve.
I grew up addicted to Monopoly and Trivial Pursuit, so my knowledge of Parcheesi or its U.S. iteration Sorry! is rudimentary at best. Mr. Ludo is a modern day version of this classic board game, but it uses the frustration of the office work environment as its central dynamic. Anyone who has lived in a cubicle infested floor can understand the need to break free and simply call it a day, so this app, though simple in concept, holds a slight level of resonance.
The screaming bunnies are back, but this time in the form of an iPhone/iPad game with Rabbids Big Bang. In this they pushed aside Rayman and left the crazy rabbits to their own devices as they float or fly around in space getting coins and other such items. The Raving Rabbids may be one of my favorite video game characters to be made in the past decade, mainly because they're so stupid and cute at the same time. Rabbids Big Bang is a mixture of the Angry Birds structure with far cooler graphics, creating hours of addictive gameplay.
