Coldfire Keep is a dungeon crawler which features several adventurers searching for riches within a portal that holds a plethora of creatures and evildoers. The app costs $4.99 to download, and although it suffers a few hiccups along the way, the game still manages to stick a solid landing.

Ava’s Quest is a slick looking new game that recently jumped out on the scene, and the earthy colors can definitely lure you in. When you’ve dealt with a couple hours worth of gameplay you begin questioning whether or not Ava’s Quest was a decent buy. It’s not due to the lack of things to do as the heroine, but a lot of the levels blend in together which makes it rather dull after a certain amount of time.
Console horror games have taken a bit of a back seat to more action-packed experiences as of late, but the threat of things lurking in the shadows has continued unabated on PCs. With Outlast, Red Barrels has brought its popular first-person survival horror title to the PlayStation 4, and along with it comes the potential for a resurgence of truly atmospheric scares. Sadly, the horrors are all superficial, and the only true test is whether or not your patience can outlast some cheap thrills.
Modern Command is a tower defense game that pits you against terrorists who are determined to destroy your military base. The good news is that it's a free-to-play experience, and you'll get a good enough taste of the app before deciding if you want to pay for the piper.
Most zombie games contain lots of gore, quick reflexes to stay alive on your feet, and a truckful of weapons to dispatch of the undead. Now there’s a new zombie game in the App Store that takes a different approach -- survive using your wits. And your wheelchair.
The Vita is a powerful little handheld, but not a particularly popular one. It can deliver gameplay experiences comparable to the PlayStation 3, but doesn’t have anywhere near as big of an install base. That’s why many companies are porting their Vita games to the PS3 at later dates. Ubisoft is the latest company to showcase a PS3 Vita port in the recently released Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD.
Crescent Moon Games is a publisher which puts out first rate titles, with last year's Mimpi serving as its gold standard. I downloaded Shadow Blade with the highest of expectations, and although it’s decent platformer with a few kinks, I was more than pleased.
Rhythm Thief & the Paris Caper is a cool port of a 2012 Nintendo 3DS game that in every way appears as if it still belongs on that system and not on your iPhone.
We live in an extremely complex and nuance world, so when a visually rudimentary, side-scroller comes our way, the instinct is to either nostalgically embrace the concept or scoff at the umpteenth retro offering. Loot Hero places a brave hero on a quest to slay an evil dragon, and even if you've seen the story a million times before, maybe traveling to simpler times isn't such a bad thing.
Halo: Spartan Assault is a top-down, dual-stick shooter (think Robotron/Super Smash TV). Taking place between the events of Halo 3 and 4, there are still plenty of Flood and Covenant leftovers that Master Chief must have missed that you need to clear out. Originally released on Windows 8, this is the first console version of Spartan Assault ever released. As we are patiently waiting for Halo 5 on the Xbox One, we're just itching for an excuse to have a DMR in our hands. Luckily, Spartan Assault's jump to the Xbox One proves that even though you're not playing as Master Chief, you can still be a Spartan.
