Every weekend, we will be taking a look at a few Android Widgets, which for some are the star of Google’s mobile operating system. They are certainly one of the big differentiating factors between Android and some of the other big players out there, but they are also not infallible. Like other mobile apps, they […]

Sometimes, with all this talk of things like the Unreal Engine being used in iPhone games and MMO style titles appearing, its hard to remember where mobile gaming came from. It came from simple, easy to play games such as Snake. Easy to pick up, its learned in an instant yet still drags you back […]

Those of you hoping to read about a conversion of hit farming sim Harvest Moon will be disappointed, as this game has nothing to do with Natsume’s cult classic. In this game of alien invasion, we are the crop to be harvested by the other worldly fiends. Business as usual then. The game is a […]

The global financial crisis is still in full swing, and bankers the world over have rightly got the blame for it, but if you are tired of seeing bankers derided as hate figures, then maybe Greedy Bankers is the game for you, for in this game, you are a banker. Greedy Bankers is an action […]

Astraware have started to port a lot of their back catalogue to HP/Palm’s webOS platform. A compilation of eight virtual versions of classic boardgames, this collection is definitely worth your time and money, with a nice polish to the title and a feeling of reassuring quality about the whole package, but it is let down […]

Spiderball is a platform puzzle game starring a bouncy ball that looks suspiciously like a certain superhero. This is one of those games that you are either going to love or hate, and you will either get to the evil fourth level, which I will come back to later, and persevere, or simply give up […]

VoKnow is a cool little app that just might change the way you use RSS feeds. The app takes new feeds and uses text to speech technology to read them out to you. It’s clever stuff, and a great idea, but it’s just a shame that it hasn’t been expanded on in its current form. […]

If there is one thing that Windows Phone 7 lacks, it’s built in chat support. Hopefully it will come baked in to the OS in a future system update. WP7 integrates services into things like the contact and photo apps nicely, so it will be interesting to see how Microsoft plugs messaging into its OS. […]
