Flight simulators are complicated. Accurate flight models, perfect recreations of aeroplanes using millions of polygons with thousands of hours put into making planes act realistically, with every little detail, from wind speed and air density to the detail of the cockpits meticulously poured over in every way, with the action taking place over landscapes that […]

“StarPagga is arguably the best multiplayer 3D space-shooter on the App Store!”-These are the opening words on this games download screen in the App Store… hmmm… I think somebody’s telling a few porky’s here, because I can assure you, this is by no means what it was described as. Now I’m sure we all familiar […]

Looking through the iPad App Store, there are a lot of crazy apps on Apple’s iOS platform. Everything you can possibly imagine is available to download, but the problem is, a lot of it isn’t even worth a free download as there is an awful lot of junk. Upon coming across the Ketchup Cooking App, […]

The Palm Pre’s little cousin, the Pixi, is often ignored by media and consumers, and is even shunned by some in the Palm community. It isn’t as fast as the Pre, and you sure do miss those 80 pixels, but the form factor is beautiful and the keyboard is in a different class to the […]

Snake has always been the definitive mobile game. On ancient Nokia phones, guiding your snake around, eating pellets to increase its length proved to be extremely addictive, even on screens worse than the original Game Boy. There have been many attempts to resurrect the genre on smart phones, but with only limited success. The likes […]

Countdown is based on the classic British TV quiz, which I have always been a fan of, trying to beat the contestants with longer words than them and on the numbers game using my maths skills, and trying to solve the random target number from the other six other numbers before the clock strikes!

Now for those of you who don’t like to hang around, but instead  like to dive straight into the gaming action, because lets face it, some developers tend to get a little ‘carried away’ with all the pre-game hype, prompting a lot of us to frantically hit the ‘skip’ button in order to get started, […]

I love RSS news feeds. I have to be honest though, up until the emergence of smartphones, they didn’t really do much for me, as although on a desktop they are definitely extremely useful for many people they never held more of a passing interest to me. On a small screened phone, however, the ability […]

It could be argued that there are very few, really good space operas on Apple’s iOS platform. Galaxy on Fire may care to argue, but aside from that, and a couple of other notable games, the space opera genre has been quite limited on iPhone. Gameloft, the master of creating new franchises based on old […]

One of the most popular game genres in the mobile space is the marble roller, and the reason for this is obvious, as all of the main smart phone platforms have one thing in common- an accelerometer. The ability to tilt a device opens up many interesting gameplay possibilities, the most obvious one being to […]
