From the time they were invented, video games have relied on a player’s reflexes as the basic point of contention. Think about it: Tetris was about how quickly you reacted to the incoming tile. Pong made you move rapidly to block the ball. Shooters tested who was the fastest gun in town. Your reflexes are paramount to how good you get at video games.
Octagon takes this up a notch, seeking to make a game that rapidly demands input, failing which it’s game over. But can your reflexes alone get you through this?

I’m quite the fan of trivia apps, and I have reviewed my fair share of them throughout my time here at AppStorm.

QuizUp, which has taken iOS by storm, definitely possesses something special. Find out why QuizUp has been moving to the top of the charts after the break.

Terraria for PC has long been a favorite of mine, but the kick in the pants is that I don’t actually own a PC. You can imagine my excitement, then, when Terraria for iOS was finally launched and I got a chance to play it. I’ll let you know how well Terraria transfers from PC to mobile and whether it stands up against the original. (more…)
Let’s face it: the App Store teems of fast-paced games packed with action and suspense. It’s all about the next new zombie game, or the arcade game that brings a new twist to an old classic. However, there are only so many of these games you can try out before they become stale.
KAMI gives a breath of fresh air to the gaming department by stripping away all the action and creating a laid-back, meditative gaming environment that can’t be found in many games these days. Does it compete with its action-packed competitors? Find out after the jump.
Alongside the deluge of Halloween updates we’ve seen this week, there have also been some remarkable new titles released.
