Are you ready for another movie-based video game? Well, it doesn't matter, because Despicable Me: Minion Rush has already sped its way into the App Store. I never know what to make with these titles. NES games like Jaws and Total Recall set the precedent early on that the quality of the movie did not have to match up with the quality of the game. And since then, there's definitely been a stigma attached between games and movies (especially when it's going the other way). So what to make of a Despicable Me endless runner? On paper, it's not something I was getting too enthused about.
The old standby genre of the iOS is the tower defense game. It has come in every shape and form we can possibly conceive, but somehow we just can’t seem to get enough of them. Like the endless onslaught of enemies in any of these titles, the games keep flooding the App Store to be devoured by our eager iOS devices. But, to stand out from the crowd, Defense Technica has to have something up its sleeve to set it apart from the rest. With so many good tower defense games around, why should we bother with another?
Based on the popular board game of the same name, Agricola is a farming game that actually has you build your own farm. Most titles in this genre enable players to construct their own cities, but Agricola illustrates life in 17th century Europe. As a farmer who's raising a family, it's your job to keep everyone fed or else they will end up begging for food. If you're not too excited about harvesting crops or building stables, don't let that deter you -- this is a worthy iOS experience that is perfect for the iPad.
Pyramus is a real-time strategy take on War of the Worlds, instead this time the humans are taking on the invading aliens in space. Armed with different ships, you must strategically maneuver and blast your way to victory to ensure mankind lives to see another day. Our world is always worth saving, but is Pyramus worth playing?
Don’t get crushed by the ever moving blocks in Radiangames’ new iOS game, Crush! This is the same company that brought us the 2012 iOS game of the year, Slydris. Will Crush! be 2013’s Game of the Year? Or will it, too, get crushed?
Since Father's Day is meant to honor and celebrate fatherhood, it is only right that we take the time to remember the most important fathers in the video game artform with this list of the 10 Best Dads of Gaming. Biological or not, father figures can play a keen influence on the interpretation of a character. Traditionally, a good father will produce good offspring (and vice versa), but we have started to see games change this dynamic over the past two decades. Many of these dads are overlooked in their actions, whether it is getting a character ready to go out into the world, or saving it completely. Today, we pay homage to the 10 Best Dads of Gaming.
The video game medium has been a much more welcoming venue for the art of ninjitsu than most other forms of fiction, which is why we're doing a list of the 10 Best Video Game Ninjas. The incorporation of ninjas into gaming has led to a breakthrough of mechanics that probably would not have been invented otherwise, such as wall-jumping, water-running, and dagger-throwing. Ninjas have left their mark throughout the gaming universe. So save up some shurikens, stay silent and slither through the shadows as we salute the 10 Best Video Game Ninjas!
Let’s grab a giant platter of sushi news and bite down on the best pieces of gaming news that hit the web on June 14, 2013.
E3 2013 has come and gone, but there's still quite a bit of fallout to cover from the show. Angelo will have more game previews up shortly. In the meantime, here are some images from the show floor that snapped while walking around looking for coffee and a game to play. The show this year was definitely a lot calmer than shows of the past. The companies didn't even try to out "booth babe" each other this year. Nope, this year's E3 was all about the games and the new systems. And giant statues.
