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…)
Let’s play pretend. Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal announces that he’s got a game coming out. Despite a few forays outside the realm of sports (remember the magic of Kazaam and hard-hitting rhymes of “Biological Didn’t Bother”?), you assume this venture will have something to do rebounds, layups and fast breaks.
Well, that’s partially true of Shaqdown, but the complementing points of the plot are closer to The Walking Dead than SportsCenter. In the game, Shaq is the Justice Bringer, thwarting mutant zombies with slams, uppercuts and laser beams.
You’re clearly confused by this intro. But you’re also interested in what the heck is going on with this game and how exactly Shaq came to be fighting the supernatural. Read on after the jump to get the gist and to find out if Shaqdown is good for more than just a few laughs. (more…)

Until recently, I’ve always noticed that iPhone games are inferior to their console counterparts, generally mimicking gameplay in a less user friendly and intuitive manner. This isn’t necessarily a hinderence to good gameplay, but for the first few years of the App Store, I don’t believe the iPhone could really compete with traditional gaming consoles outside of the casual category.
Over the past year or so, a new culture of gaming has emerged. Games have vastly improved and started to provide near identical gameplay to their more dedicated console brethren. One such game is Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies, which brings a very similar set of gameplay mechanics and maps to the iPhone.
