May the 4th be with you, friends (sorry, I had to)! Nothing says weekend like some new games to play, and lucky for you we’ve got a terrific collection this week, including some familiar faces and a few arcade-y masterpieces.
Click through, and play on!
Max Payne Mobile on the iPhone (universal iOS) is a third-person shooter set in a gritty, modern-noir New York criminal underworld. Originally released in 2001 by Remedy Entertainment, it has found its way to iOS, just on the cusp of the release of Max Payne 3.
In the game you take on the titular role of Max Payne, an undercover DEA agent who becomes the main suspect in his friend’s murder, and proceeds to go rogue in order to hunt down the guilty parties. His plan? To rain mad bullets down in an unending torrent of lead that leaves no one left standing. Get gunning after the break.
When I think of sports games, I think of ones with extreme graphics and hundreds of controls. Nowadays, games like FIFA and Madden have taken the App Store by storm. Even though these are great console games, I have never found them all that great for something like the iPhone.
Who loves puzzle games? Well I do for one, and there are lots of others out there who share my joy for the casual game. The Heist isn’t just a puzzle game though, it’s an interactive mission. It’s like Ocean’s 11 without the lame sequels. Or George Clooney. Or really anything other than a safe.
But what is it? Well for that answer, you’re going to have to hit the jump. (more…)
We’ve made it to the weekend, everyone take a deep breath. If you’re ready for your quick fix of new App Store games, then you’re in the right place and have some sweet new titles to look forward to.
Discover the lighter side of a werewolf’s curse, crusade against ducks, seek burgers, and more in this week’s roundup — see you on the other side!
Lume is one of those rare puzzle games that you just can’t put down once you start. The design and background music are impeccable in setting a somber yet elegant tone. The puzzle challenges inside are also fun and quite the brain teaser.
The app was created by State of Play Games who have already begun work on the sequel, Lume 2. The popularity of Lume is not unfounded, as it certainly offers a unique mobile experience. There are some iOS users who just hate buying games and do not enjoy playing them, but if you like complex puzzles or even enjoy colorful app interfaces Lume is an amazing example. (more…)
I am not easily amused by casual games, and though I love the idea of a game I just pick up and play on my iPhone anytime, I lose interest in most games almost immediately. Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer, however, has turned me into the fiending iPhone gamer I was longing to be.
Ascension is an iOS universal game by Playdeck, of the popular printed card game of the same name. It’s what you would call a deck building game, where each player starts with some basic cards (the same for each player) and, through the mechanics of game play, builds a deck that grants them more power over play, and more points in the end. Find out more after the break. (more…)
We all loved Tetris growing up, right? Maybe it was just me, but I could lose hours playing that classic game, dropping brick upon brick or waiting endlessly for that one super long one to complete a big block all at once. It sure was addictive, and I guess that’s why I haven’t been able to put down SpellTower since I bought it a few days ago.
Is the game reminiscent of Tetris? Definitely. But even better, it uses words to create your own blocks of varying sizes. Of course, there’s more to it than just that, so let’s get into everything after the jump. (more…)
It’s a blockbuster week, friends! Tons of amazing games out to play on the App Store, and after the jump we’ve put together the highlights — don’t miss the chance to take Max Payne on the go, live as a crow, or experience the latest title from the makers of Game Dev Story … (more…)
