You probably know Zynga best for their popular Facebook game FarmVille, the one that all of your non-gaming friends play. It’s those types of apps that Zynga does really well, and one of the classic staples of their roster is Words With Friends.
Essentially, this is Scrabble — just don’t talk about it (Like in Fight Club, rule No. 1, don’t talk about Scrabble). But instead of passing your board back and forth between your competitor, Words With Friends (or WWF for short) is more of a casual game that can span across days if you want. So what makes this Zynga special so fun? Talk it out after the break.
Welcome to the New Year, everyone! While we wait for the flood of fresh titles to appear in the App Store, have a look at these excellent titles that came in just before we hit 2012. There are some incredible items in here so don’t miss the opportunity to get all caught up before the new season of games shows up!
There’s been a lot of complaining around these parts (mostly by me) about games being ported to the iPhone that are ridiculously difficult to control. It’s just the inherent nature of holding a small phone in your hands and controlling things by touching a glass screen, but it could be improved upon.
Well, looks like someone has gone ahead and made that mythical controller that I’ve been dreaming of, the only problem is there aren’t many games for it — yet. It’s called the GamePad, and it sells for $49.99. It seems to solve most of my problems, but here’s the thing: Is having a game controller for your iPhone worth the money?
It’s your call, people. Vote in the poll to the right and let us know!
It works out nicely that we get to round off not just the week but the entire year this weekend. It’s been an extraordinary one for iOS gaming, and although there are many titles out there that we’ll be playing for months to come, we wanted to end the year with another collection of games that only recently made it to the App Store, in time for New Year’s shoppers …
In the years since the iPhone was introduced, the platform has grown by leaps and bounds, making it far easier and better to do the simple tasks we tend to do every day. In the process, iPhone gaming has become wildly popular, with all sorts of different styles making the transition from the web, consoles and PCs to the tiny phone that sits in our pockets or purses.
But for all the talk about how great the iPhone is for games, what are the limitations? What is good on the iPhone and what just plain sucks? I started thinking about it the other day, and you know, iPhone gaming sure is cool but it’s just not quite perfect for everything. Let’s hash this puppy out after the break.
Happy holidays, everyone! This time of year brings us a huge number of seasonal updates to our favourite games, so make sure to check out the latest updates in the App Store for classics like the Angry Birds series, Cut the Rope, Junk Jack, Jetpack Joyride, etc.)
There is more to this week than updates though, as some developers have been releasing amazing new games just in time for the festivities. Click through as we show you our favourites …
If you were looking to find me 10 years ago, chance were you’d see me in the living room of my home, furiously mashing the buttons on my Playstation 2 while playing Grand Theft Auto III. I didn’t really like the series at first, but like many other gamers out there, I soon became hooked and the world of Grand Theft Auto became my addiction. I followed GTA III with Vice City, then San Andreas and on into the next wave of consoles. I love this series really, that’s the point I’m getting at here, so when I found out it was coming to the iPhone and iPad, I couldn’t have been more excited.
Then I downloaded the game, and it was all that I had hoped for. There it was, the full version of Grand Theft Auto III in my hands! But then I started playing it and well, let’s talk about it after the break.

Does anyone remember the game Snood? Years ago, when I was just a boy, I played the game Snood on my home PC. It involved shooting small shaped and colored creatures from the bottom of the screen up into a heaping mass of similar creatures collected at the top. The goal of this Tetris style game was get rid of all the Snoods, which disappeared when certain colors and shapes met up. There are probably hundreds of puzzle games formed off this same basic concept, but Snood blew me away because it was the first of it’s kind that I played.
Today, I present to you Amazing Breaker. This gorgeous game from Dekovir gave the me the same feeling of awe and excitement that Snood brought me, because of it’s brilliant approach to puzzle gaming. Hit the jump to find out exactly what makes Amazing Breaker a serious notch in this genre.
