Developer Pixbits, makers of fun and addictive side-scrolling title Junk Jack, have been talking about making a new version of the game for a few months now. But we now have official word that a new one is on its way!
The Top 25 Best 2D Platformers of gaming history are kind of a cyclical bunch. Half are great retro games from gaming's youth, while the other half are inspired indie titles that have decided to bring modern day gaming back to a more simple time
The sequel to the free Xbox Live Arcade surprise hit Doritos Crash Course is coming out on Wednesday.
Junktopia is a release from Mobot Studios that was created in one week while the team took a break from a bigger project. They challenged themselves to make a full game in less time than it takes for someone to catch up on all of the current seasons of How I Met Your Mother. Was the result something to be celebrated in the App Store? Or should we not bother following the game's advice on recycling, and just go ahead and trash it?
Chillingo and developer Games Faction have updated their addictive side-scrolling shooter Storm the Train with new content, including extra character attributes, weapons, and a bunch of new features. All aboard!
Madmonster, a combination between an endless runner and a platform game, delivers an excellent first impression. Tired of accelerating in one direction? Madmonster offers left and right action. Had enough of simply jumping for coins with a platformer? Try leaping high into the stratosphere to smash satellites and planes, that should do the trick. With such expanded and diverse game play, I thought I was in gaming heaven. Unfortunately, paradise didn't make room for this money grubbing monster.
The Blue Blur versus the Blue Bomber. Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man are two of gaming's most popular heroes, each with dozens of titles under their belts (or lack of a belt, on Sonic's case, since that dude likes to run around au naturale). Both fight robots. Both had their heyday during the '90s. Both have had several reimagings and revamps, with varying degrees of success. With Archie Comics smack-dab in the middle of the crossover mini-series that gamers have been clamoring for, it begs the question: which gaming hero wears blue the best?
Random Heroes 2 is a platformer from Ravenous Games, the studio behind the League of Evil and the original Random Heroes game. These titles are love letters to oldschool platformers, bringing their difficulty, need for precision, and retro style to the forefront of modern portable gaming. Does this latest title in the series impress? Or should we just start calling it Ran-dumb Heroes 2?
