It’s been years since I’ve played a game that reminded me of my days booting up X-Wing and Tie Fighter on LucasArts floppy disks. Feeling that freedom of flying around in space and taking on enemies in zero-G felt wonderful. The next game to capture that was Wing Commander with all of its glorious live action cutscenes featuring Mark Hamill. Now though, it seems like I can have all of that fun in the palm of my hand. Beyond Space is a new iOS title that brings back all the nostalgia and fun of interstellar dogfights.

God of Light is an app that expands on an already well-traversed universe of physics-based puzzle games. By effectively merging and infusing a distinct visual style and a standout score from hip hop act UNKLE, God of Light turns this brain twister into a sublime, if not occasionally evocative, experience.
The product of successful Kickstarter campaign, Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse, from developer Revolution, has finally been released on the App Store after a development period of about half a year
Sometimes a game can come into your life, shatter your expectations and remind you that some of the most amazing moments you can ever encounter in the meta-verses of both fiction and entertainment can be brought to you by a video game.

If you’re a Star Wars fan, or just don’t know you’re one yet, then the arrival of Lego Star Wars: Microfighters in the App Store should cause you a great deal of excitement
In Bardbarian, BulkyPix’s latest offering to the App Store, you’re charged with protecting a village rather than destroying one.
Sometimes we channel our inner beast mode, and when the appetite to do bad overtakes us, a trip to Castle Doombad is a necessary and highly recommended evil.
It's hard to meet a discerning gamer who isn't a fan of Sonic the Hedgehog, but part of this hero's appeal lies in the universe which created him. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed features Sonic's extended Sega family, so running around the track takes on an entirely different, and deeper meaning.
For iOS gaming to enter an even deeper dimension, angry bird watchers and candy crushers may have to step to the side and actually let the big boys play. Hours of addicting touch and tap play is fine and dandy, but profundity is obviously lost in the process. Republique, whose origins stem from a successful Kickstarter campaign, goes straight our guts and world weary souls with a totalitarian nightmare, and in the process, offers up a little hope.
