Crimsonland HD Review

Crimsonland HD Review

Giant spiders. Zombie lurkers. Weird greed lizard men that look like they've escaped from a particularly cheap and wonky episode of Doctor Who. You'll find all these creatures and more in the iOS port of decade-old twin-stick shooter Crimsonland. And yes, you'll get to shoot them all with a variety of weird and wonderful weapons. Check out the carnage in Crimsonland HD video review above.…

Electronic Super Joy: Groove City Review

Electronic Super Joy: Groove City Review

Lo-fi platformers may be all the rage, but developers still have a tough time making the formula work on touchscreen devices. Thank goodness for Electronic Super Joy: Groove City, then, a twitchy, brash, and brutal side-scroller which is as interested in silly asides and pop culture nods as it is in sadism. To learn more, direct your eyes to the video above.…

Ubisoft's online state-hopping racer The Crew is set to cruise onto consoles this December. However, mobile-loving petrol heads will be able to get in on the high octane action via the upcoming mobile tie-on The Crew Road Empire. Take a look at the video above to see what the game has to offer.…


Helix iPad Review

Review Michael Brough By James Gilmour, 1 week, 1 day ago
Helix iPad Review

Helix is a game about twists and turns. I don't mean it has a surprise M. Night Shyamalan ending or a section where you relive your failed driving test a third, excruciating time. No - in Helix, you are literally spinning your avatar around enemies to eliminate them from the screen. Take a look at our video review to find out whether this simple mechanic won us over.…

Leaked Game of Thrones - A Telltale Game Series screenshots show Cercei scowling obviously

Leaked Game of Thrones - A Telltale Game Series screenshots show Cercei scowling obviously

Though some may be unsure how Telltale is planning to incorporate the violent, twitchy Borderlands universe into its slow, narrative-driven point-and-click template, we imagine few adventure game fans have any such fears about the studio's upcoming Game of Thrones game. Not only is the fantasy epic perfectly suited to the Telltale treatment, the first screenshots (which were leaked today) show that the art department has nailed the look of the HBO show, including likenesses of characters like Cercei and Tyrion Lannister. Check out the video above to see the leaked images.…

Hands-on with The Silent Age: Chapter 2, the time-hopping point-and-click adventure

The Silent Age came out of nowhere. Released without fanfare as a free download, the game caught us slightly off-guard by really rather good. The minimal presentation was strong, the time-travel hook delivered a few surprises, and the puzzles were smart. It's been a long time coming, but the sequel has just arrived as an in-app purchase. Mark Brown sees how the story continues in the video above.…


Skullduggery! Review

Review ClutchPlay Games By James Gilmour, 1 month, 2 weeks ago
Skullduggery! Review

In this zombie obsessed culture of ours you'll find hundreds of games built around protecting your brain from becoming a deadite's breakfast. Skullduggery! flips the script on this trend. Here, your brain is not a helpless yet delicious blob of matter tucked away inside your bonce. Instead, it's an elastic and dynamic system of propulsion and attack, one which you will learn to manipulate until you can navigate mazes and shatter skeletons into bony bits. Check out Mark Brown's review…

Hands-on with Reckless Racing 3, the souped-up sequel with pirouetting big rigs

If you're a fan of top-down racing in the vein of 16-bit classics like Micro Machines, then the Reckless Racing series has always been something of a shining light on iOS. It successfully marries the good looks of a quasi-realistic racing game with the crazy drifting and arcade fun of more outlandish titles like Outrun. Yesterday, Reckless Racing 3 skidded onto iPhone and iPad everywhere. The question is, has the wheel screeching carnage of previous games made its way into this newest installment? Watch the video above to find out.…
