Crimsonland HD Review

Review 10tons Ltd By James Gilmour, 5 days, 10 hours ago
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.…

The 5 most ridiculous smartphone endorsements by celebrities

Toplist By Peter Willington, 6 days, 3 hours ago
The 5 most ridiculous smartphone endorsements by celebrities

Sometimes the rich and famous decide to endorse brands and products in exchange for money. Sounds absurd and a little bit underhanded, I know, but it's true. Sometimes those brands and products are smartphones, and sometimes these celebrities appear in video advertisements in the hope that the masses will readily consume them, and start to think about how lovely and shiny and desirable said brands and products are. Many of them are completely ridiculous, and these are the five best. Hence the article title. HTC and Gary Oldman - Now this is what you want from a phone ad: a man making vaguely threatening remarks to you. The iPhone 6 and U2 - Well now... this one went south pretty quickl…


Electronic Super Joy: Groove City Review

Review Yazar Media Group LLC By James Gilmour, 6 days, 7 hours ago
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.…

Puzzles and poker collide in new iOS and Android game Far Cry 4 Arcade Poker

Helix iPad Review

Review Michael Brough By James Gilmour, 6 days, 22 hours 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.…

What does spending $3000 on Gems in Clash of Clans look like? This

Feature By Peter Willington, 1 week ago
What does spending $3000 on Gems in Clash of Clans look like? This

SlimmyshankCoC is a Clash of Clans player, and a fairly well-known one at that. He's mostly known because of his YouTube channel, and specifically his "Crazy Gem Spending" videos, in which he splurges a bunch of cash on IAPs in an effort to make himself artificially more powerful in Supercell's free-to-play strategy management title. I've gathered up all of these videos thus far, and tallied up how much he's spent in this series alone. It's a lot. So take a look at the episodes below and see what $3000+ of iTunes credit will buy you. Oh and FYI: from about video 6 onwards his videos get NSFW in some fairly immature ways. SlimmyshankCoC by name... 1. Total spend this video = $300 2.…

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.…

Surviving in Minecraft: Pocket Edition, Episode 11 - Creeper City

You want one full hour of Minecraft: PE? Cool! Then I'm here to give that to you. I decided to stream my latest adventure in AppSpy world live on Twitch, and it went swimmingly. Well, it did to begin with. After a while I got completely lost, realised I was alone, got a bit scared, and then decided I needed to make another shelter to keep me safe during the night. But just as I began to let my guard down, it all went wrong. I did make the biggest diving board ever though, so that's something I suppose. Also: creepers! Missed an episode? Catch up here.…

7 ridiculously hard stages from Geometry Dash

7 ridiculously hard stages from Geometry Dash

Geometry Dash is a hard game, and features some absurdly challenging levels in it that will prove tough to even the most patient, dedicated, and skilful of hardcore video gamers. Seriously, some of the stages are stupidly, ridiculously, supremely difficult, and take ages to complete, let alone master. But just how hard is hard? I've collected a bunch of video evidence off of that Everyplay, and attempt to convey just how hard these levels are. Hard. Harder than hard. Harder than that. Harder than working out a very hard equation. Harder than a hard boiled egg that went to the school of hard knocks. Harder than 40 hard men from Chard, who have done hard time in prison for b…
