  • Goro’s Way (Review) iPhone/iPod/iPad

    Posted by on June 1, 2010 under Portables, Reviews
    A cute 2D platform creature trying to eek out a living in a cruel 3D shooter world. That's as close to "you had me at hello" as I get. I've long been a sucker for this now-underdog genre, which when done well matches the best of its rivals in offering new things to explore and discover. But Goro's Way is like that pretty girl who turns out be not all that bright (or, in my case, probably acti... more.
  • Angry Birds (Review) iPhone/iPod/iPad

    Posted by on May 28, 2010 under Portables, Reviews
    Odds are you probably already have and love this game, so all that's left for a poor reviewer to do is try to tell you something about it you don't know. For starters, behind the pay wall of The Wall Street Journal's Web site is this gem of an incentive for aspiring app developers:  "'Angry Birds' has generated about 2.35 million paid downloads since its launch in December…It costs 99 cents... more.
  • Pocket Pinball Sci-Fi (Review) iPhone/iPod/iPad

    Posted by on May 9, 2010 under Portables
    A 3D, true-to-physics iPhone pinball game featuring complex logic without roaming cameras or "RGB-like quest on an eight-screen playfield" X-tremism. OK,  a few exist already – the revived Amiga classic Pinball Dreaming: Pinball Dreams in particular – and this isn't the most in-demand genre around. But as a former kid willing to tolerate dad's beatings for staying too long at the ice rink'... more.
  • All-In-1 Gamebox (Review) iPhone/iPod/iPad

    Posted by on May 3, 2010 under Portables
    Nothing written in this reviews matters, since this app is as critic proof as it gets. But I'm wasting time writing it anyhow since, unlike the Double Down, this effort actually justifies the hype. All-In-1 Gamebox is a perpetual contender on bestseller lists because it offers a wealth of constantly increasing titles – 30 as of this writing – for a mere 99 cents. The logic for buying it is ... more.
  • RPG Snake – The Adventure of Akua (Review) iPhone/iPod/iPad

    Posted by on May 3, 2010 under Portables
    It's incredible how thin the line is between a great game and utter trash. And incredible how even the most tired gaming concepts can shine in the hands of a creative programmer. RPG Snake takes one of the world's oldest and most copied games – something so simple it was among my first projects in the archaic language of BASIC – and makes it fresh and fun by meshing it with another old genr... more.
  • Polar Bear Racing (Review) iPhone/iPod/iPad

    Posted by on May 3, 2010 under Portables
    Living in the world's northernmost town means I invariably snag anything with polar bears, seals, penguins and other creatures roaming the extreme ends of the Earth. Saying I can see polar bears from my backyard isn't comic exaggeration – indeed, it's essential to carry a rifle to ward them off when wandering beyond the city limits. That is far, far easier on the nerves than trying to play th... more.
  • Intellivision (Review) iPhone/iPod/iPad

    Posted by on April 29, 2010 under Portables
    (Full disclosure: This product originally received a scathing "not acceptable" review, which has been completely rewritten due to an update shortly before publication. While this is good news for users, developers who don't adequately playtest software before release tend to make critics surly.) It doesn't happen often, but Intellivision finally won a round against Atari. Mattel's quirky vid... more.
  • Homerun Battle 3D (Review) iPhone/iPod/iPad

    Posted by on April 16, 2010 under Portables
    Baseball's a great sport as long as you skip the game. It's endlessly entertaining reading about fantasy fanatics, players' per-pitch pay, the upside of 46th round draft picks, concession prices and anything that is the dugout of despair known as the Washington Nationals. It's possible I have an attitude because I'm so lousy I've hit myself swinging the bat on more than one occasion. So w... more.
