Most platform games looks like an explosion at a crayon factory. Most platform games require precision jumping and hair-trigger reflexes. Shift 2 is different. This stylish, black & white game is about jumping around on platforms, yes, but in order to get anywhere, you’re going to have to use your gray matter to think like a puzzle master. And it works wonderfully...
Listening to pundits, parents, and politicians, you'd think that videogames were the worst plague ever visited upon humankind. They make us dumb. They make us violent. They make us perverted. They make us twitchy and impatient. They make us disconnected loners and social misfits.
Here's the antidote to such overblown criticism – seven games that will make you smarter. Next time someone's trying to tell you that your hobby is stupid, show them one of these and see if they can solve even a fraction of its brilliance...
The Android had a great collection of games in 2010, and really distinguished itself from its competitors with the fine assortment of games we’ve collected here. Once you’ve downloaded these you’ll be saying, “Apple who?”
For this week's iPad feature, we're looking at a mix of recent releases – ZombieSmash HD and Time Crisis 2nd Strike HD – as well as a handful of slightly older 2010 releases still well worth your attention: Radio Flare Redux HD, Ninjatown: Trees of Doom! HD!, and Gravity Hook HD. We thought about changing the name of this week's feature to "iPad reviews of the week HD" to match the suffix of all five apps, but thought better of it – probably for the best, really...
Dungeon Hunter 2 HD wants to be Diablo 2 so bad it hurts. It copies everything it can—the looting, the leveling, the skill points, and classes, even the enemies reek of JV D2. But the thing is because of its touch screen controls, wildly different graphics, and altered combat system, at the end of the day DH2 (and its HD counterpart on iPad) feels nothing like Diablo 2. This is a good thing...
Infinity Blade is great and all, but the real showcase for awesome iDevice graphics actually be racing games. Because not only can they look incredible, they do so while moving at breakneck speeds. This is what makes Asphalt 6: Adrenaline so impressive...
By now you’ve probably played enough twin stick shooters to last a lifetime or longer. They’re everywhere. On Xbox Live Arcade, the PlayStation Network, and especially the App Store. So why should you play Solomon’s Keep? Because it’s not so much a twin stick shooter as a twin stick dungeon crawler. And that’s something new. And awesome...
You know that feeling in a shooter when you manage to get a hold of one of the much sought after turrets and start laying waste to whole squads of dudes? It’s pretty awesome. Artillery Brigade takes that one awesome moment and makes a whole game out of it. And it works pretty well...
When the iPad launched last April, some speculated it'd become a host for scads of enhanced iPhone ports, a device capable of hosting sharp iterations of AAA console and PC releases, or a breeding ground for all-new types of gaming experiences. Luckily, all three came true without fail, and we watched the device transform into one of the most diverse and wide-ranging gaming platforms around. With many months of iteration and experimentation under their belts, we're certain iPad game developers will deliver even more inventive and exciting experiences in 2011, and look forward to what rumored hardware revisions will mean for gaming on the platform...
Knight Defense is what happens when chess gets the Pac-Man Championship Edition treatment. Sure, it looks like chess, but with an almost completely changed rule set (how completely? It's real-time, for one. Keep reading...) and a hyper modern presentation, it feels new. And it also feels great.
