Review: Predators

In: Reviews by Dave "Holy Goalie" Gardner

30 Jul 2010

Just in time to coincide with the movie release of Predators, Chillingo has released the eponymous game for iPhone and iPad. We were sent a copy, and I gave it a twirl around my old iPod Touch. Unfortunately, the enjoyment of this game doesn’t come down to how it was written or how it plays [...]

My Prince is in Another Game

In: Articles by Nick "Alsop Live" Dinicola

30 Jul 2010

I’m a Prince of Persia fanboy. I’ve played every game, I saw movie on opening day, and I think the 2008 game is the pinnacle of series in terms of creativity and innovation. But my price is gone, and the guy I’m left with feels like an insincere imitation.

Hydro Thunder titles have been released on a couple of consoles before, but if I ever picked up the Nintendo 64 or Dreamcast versions those memories have long since been forgotten.

Review: Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands

In: Reviews by Nick "Alsop Live" Dinicola

28 Jul 2010

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is a fun game. It’s just the right length, never repeating itself or needlessly dragging out some section of gameplay, and it represents a whole new genre unto itself: An action-puzzle-rhythm-platformer. It’s also not worth $60.

It has begun. It started off slowly, almost silenty. One page at a time, one URL link at a time. But eventually our video game manuals started to get thinner and thinner, with the end goal for many companies to not have a manual at all and instead to have it all online.

Review: Super 7

27 Jul 2010

Super 7 is unlucky. This free app of the day from developer No Monkeys came out last week for the iPad and iPhone. It was heralded as a puzzle game, so for free I gave it a try. The object is to connect the floating numbered gems by dragging a line with your finger to [...]
