Race of Champions World Review
Handheld systems have radically changed the world of racing games. It used to be you had to steer with a directional pad or joystick, or one of those big steering wheel add-ons that never really worked like a real steering wheel. Now tilt controls make driving games simple and sensitive. Find out about the latest iOS racing game to take advantage of tilt controls below.
Littlest Pet Shop Review
Thanks to iOS, I’ve gotten really into farming games in a way I never thought I would. I don’t usually pay for the in-game upgrades, I just patiently wait for buildings to build and characters to complete their tasks, usually over several hours. You can just check in every few hours and see what you’ve built, and assign your characters new tasks. Games like Simpsons Tapped Out, Gnome Village and
Mystery Detectives: Blackwood and Bell Review
Remember all those “find the hidden objects in a picture” puzzles? You’re all probably too young to remember Highlights magazine, but they always had one in the back. Well, now there’s an iOS game that’s all about finding hidden objects in a photo, and it’s complicated to the nth degree. It’s also a farming game and it’s freemium so you could end up spending all your money on it.
I’m usually not the guy who reviews long, in depth adventure games for Arcade Sushi but one new game had a hook that seemed right up my alley. I love music games so anything music related should work for me, plus this one has a ton of mini-games throughout it. So it’s really a more casual game, only you play the mini-games to collect objects for quests. Find out what new adventure game got me hook
Atomic Frogs Review
I’ve figured out the formula to iOS games. Pick an adjective and then pick an animal. The adjective will automatically make the animal sound funny, mainly because you never think of describing most animals with any adjectives at all. They’re just animals. I’m going to invent Rebellious Llamas, but until then, find out what the latest adjective animal is inside.
Real Boxing Review
You don’t need to be a sports fan to enjoy boxing games. You only need to be a Rocky fan. Stallone gave everybody a point of reference for fisticuffs in the rings. I guess Scorsese and De Niro helped too. Or maybe there’s just something inside all of us that likes to wail on other dudes. We checked out the latest boxing game that lets you do just that.
Beat Gather Review
Music gamers are always on the quest for more songs. We’ll buy extra download content and add our favorite songs to our playlists, just to get new music and new challenging note patterns to play. Even the biggest Guitar Hero or Rock Band library had finite choices, so iOS music games have opened the floodgates with more content. Now Konami has created the ultimate iOS music game. It seems Japan ha
10 Best iOS Music Games
We've always been big fans of music games on consoles. There have been music games for all tastes on consoles and in arcades. If you weren't a fan of Dance Dance Revolution (or just couldn't grasp the choreography), surely you rocked out with Guitar Hero or Rock Band. Even the hand...
Duck & Roll Review
New music games don’t have to reinvent the wheel as long as they offer good songs, but iOS music games have experimented with different ways players can tap their screens. Games like Guitar Hero and Michael Jackson: The Experience modified their console experience, while games like Taptap and Symphonica put their own twists on tapping games. Now there’s a game that combines the mobile tapping genr
