The modern world of gaming is very different to the one of a decade ago. Games consoles are being marketed as far more than just machines to play games on; devices like the iPhone along with the App Store have revolutionised the way we perceive portable gaming, and console manufacturers are struggling to find ways to compete. Even home consoles are becoming outdated, as they largely force us to use physical media in a world where we’ve gotten used to just downloading a new game whenever we fancy.

Microsoft have done something awesome. Instead of releasing something else to compete with Apple in this market, they released Xbox SmartGlass. The app allows you to use your iOS device as an extension of your Xbox, and it is very, very cool. (more…)

I don’t play a lot of games on my iPhone, or anywhere, for that matter. I do enjoy them, but just find myself going other directions for entertainment most of the time. I know the iPhone is a great device for gaming so I thought I should probably check out this world a little more.

I decided to explore one of those retro-style game that I’ve been hearing so much about. I love the style and felt like a little mindless iPhone fun so why not. There are many in this space, but I decided to take Bit-1 for a spin. The screenshots looked impressive and the community seemed to enjoy it, so I picked up a copy to check it out for myself. My thoughts after the jump. (more…)

Ever since Foursquare saw a massive growth in popularity, it’s become clear that mobile social networking is on the rise. Facebook also recently purchased another big-time check-in service, Gowalla, back in December 2011. But users are look for more than geographic check-ins.

ImGame is a revolutionary idea which attracts gamers of all crowds! The app behaves as a check-in social network where you can share what game(s) you’re playing. Check-ins are performed in real time and you can even accept push notifications for when your friends are online too. Find out more after the jump.

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.

It’s Game Week here at iPhone.AppStorm, and all this week we’re going to have tons of reviews, giveaways and other good stuff, all centered around the gaming world!

iPhone gaming has taken off in the past few years. While there are still plenty of casual games that allow you to kill a few minutes with a shallow-yet-enjoyable experience while you’ve got a few minutes to kill, there have also been games that push the hardware and software to their limits.

What will the future of iPhone gaming look like? I’d like to explore that today, talking my way through what the future might hold based on a few observations in the present. Now, more than ever, we’re staring at a turning point in gaming not only on the iPhone, but the concept as a whole.

It’s Game Week here at iPhone.AppStorm, and all this week we’re going to have tons of reviews, giveaways and other good stuff, all centered around the gaming world!

To kick off Game Week, let’s just hit this one right with the obvious: Are you a gamer? Do you find yourself furiously tapping the screen trying to get the next level, or just casually playing solitaire while you wait for your doctor’s appointment?

We want to know, so answer the question in the poll to the right!

The iOS platform has been quite successful over the past few years, and because of the extensive amount of games available in the App Store, it’s even been called a threat to other portable gaming consoles like the Sony PSP and the Nintendo DS. But while Nintendo has Mario and Sony has Grand Theft Auto, there really wasn’t any game for iOS that made traditional console gamers really excited. iOS seemed to be destined for a life of games made for the average person, not hardcore gamers.

Then came Epic Citadel, a demo made by Epic Games that took the same Unreal Technology found on consoles and put it in the hands of iPhone and iPod Touch owners everywhere. We were promised that Epic Citadel was just the start of things, and that soon, we’d have a full-on game that took place in the same environment, and we should be ready.

Well, it’s here. It’s called Infinity Blade and it’s been receiving very positive reviews since its release. But can a game with this much hype live up to its reputation? Let’s take a moment and find out.
