Oh, how I used to while away my days playing Sonic the Hedgehog on my SEGA Genesis back in the day. Between that and Street Fighter II, I don’t know how I got any homework done (actually, that explains a lot). Seriously, the Sonic series of games have a solid root on my heart, but recent versions have desecrated the name and turned it into a near worthless bit of IP.
But now there’s Sonic Dash, a reinvention of the concept for the mobile platform. It’s a runner, sure, but it’s also a different format for my favorite blue hedgehog entirely. Does it hold up to all of those childhood memories, or is it just another Sonic and the Black Knight? Let’s find out. (more…)

If you’re asking yourself what a Gugl is, you’re about to find out. The stars of Link That Gugl are cute and round little creatures that come in a variety of hues and are all mixed up on the gameboard. It’s up to you to connect the same-colored ones to create the longest chain possible, thereby scoring as many points as you can.
It sounds so easy, but this game will test test your ability to think quickly and identify the most efficient ways of linking Gugls to maximize your score. Are you ready to play? Read more after the jump. (more…)
Have you ever wondered if it’s true there’s a place in a person’s head, that if you shoot it, it will explode? Yeah, it’s true — at least in Ready Steady Bang. That’s okay, though, because the design and pixel animations in Ready Steady Bang are more slapstick than serious. A true test of reflexes, you’ll be called on to take out pint-sized outlaws or pitted against your friends to find out who’s the fastest gun in the West. (more…)

In the seventh grade I was required to take a computer lab class. At the time, I wasn’t into computers or learning about what they had to offer, but one week I was introduced to a new favorite addiction — The Oregon Trail. I was hooked almost immediately by the core concept and simplistic game play, and enjoyed the challenge of making it safely to Oregon.
In 2011, developers The Men Who Wear Many Hats released a retro survival zombie game for the web called Organ Trail, which drew many similarities to the classic Apple II game. The Organ Trail eventually became so popular that the developers raised funds via Kickstarter in order to produce a new version for iOS and Android. If you’re a fan of The Oregon Trail like me, you’ll most certainly want to hit the jump to learn more about Organ Trail: Director’s Cut. (more…)

Snooker, whilst a fairly niche sport, is one that tends to be recreated in digital form as a game on most platforms these days. Snooker games have long been available on the PC and consoles as real, in-depth simulations of the sport. Mobile versions, however, have always been scarce, and when they are available, tend to be much more arcade than simulation.
