GI Joyride in Review- World War 2 Meets Dukes of Hazard

gijoyride1When I think of WW2 games, I think of the usual shoot-em-ups that are constantly getting released for platforms. Whether it be for the Xbox 360, PS3, or Wii, the idea just seems overplayed to me at this point. But, GI Joyride (developed by Trapdoor) takes a completely different approach to war-style games by putting you in charge of an APC (Armored Personal Carrier) to thrash through enemy territory.

5 Developers = 1 amazing price

5fingersbundle1What do you get when 5 well received independent developers get together and play a round or two of texas holdem’ poker? A bundled 5-in-1 game of course!

All five of us are independent developers. Together, we have created a first for the iPhone. Nobody has released a games bundle before, but we’re not just filling a gap. We put five of the most popular iPhone games of all time together, and dropped the price to levels that we can not repeat. This bundle is a bargain. It might be our mistake. Don’t let it be yours.

According to the 5fingersbundle website, the Five Fingers Game Bundle is only available at the the App Store for a limited time. This first of its kind collaboration is between Majic Jungle Software – Chopper, Warhorse Games – Blackbeard’s Assault, Antair Corporation – Sneezies, IMS – BurnBall, and Veiled Games – Up There.  This 5-in-1 combo can be had for only $4.99, which is a great deal considering if purchased separately, it would set you back $10.95. Aside from the price factor, the games are pretty good to boot, making this an even sweeter deal. If you’ve yet to try these popular games out, now would be the perfect time to grab it in one neat package. [5 Fingers Games Bundle, $4.99] Check out the video VeiledGames have put up after the break.

exzeus-reviewimg_0005exzeus-reviewimg_0004

HyperDevbox Japan smash through the boundaries of many gamer’s wildest dreams with ExZeus. Not only do they bring to the iDevice giant robots and big guns, but ExZeus, a coinop arcade game now fits into the greasy pockets of iPhone and iPod Touch gamers everywhere.

Hyperdevbox sport an impressive catalogue of games for PS2, Wii and xBox 360 as well as with the debut of ExZeus, an upcoming ports section for handheld gaming machines. ExZeus is a great achievement as a first handheld port and I hope will is indicative of the quality of games that are in the production queue. Though excellent, ExZeus is hampered not by its  content but by hardware limitations in the iDevice.

Arcade Hoops Basketball in Review – Have fun with lotsa balls

arcadebasketball1I love balls…big red ones…the kind you dribble and shoot through hoops that is. Basketball has always been a favorite sport of mine, perhaps because I had a picture perfect jump shot like Mikail Jurdan, or not. For those who are vertically challenged or can’t shoot worth a lick (on standard sized baskets), they always have arcade basketball to fall back on to relive their favorite Kobe moments. Thanks to Skyworks, the developers behind other App Store offerings in Arcade Bowling, QB Pass Attack Football and X’s and O’s Football, this awesome arcade past-time has been miniaturized on to the iPhone.

Pocket God in Review – A very good source of laughter… especially during these times…

pocketgod1I was browsing the iTunes App Store one day, and I suddenly came across this app; I read the description in iTunes and I was very intrigued by the purpose of Pocket God. I initially though that this game is very similar to The Sims or others in the genre, but it turns out to be an entirely different type of game. Whatever caused me to download this game I have no regret in doing so.

Skybound in Review – Bouncing High into the Sky

skybound_pic1Practically everyone’s watched a bouncing ball as it jumped horizontally across the floor before inevitably coming to a rolling stop. But what happens when you give that ball the chance to fly high above the tallest buildings, past the blue skies, and into space and beyond? Skybound gives you the opportunity to investigate the air up there in a fun and challenging way.

Sway in Review – Let me PerSWAY you to get this!!!

sway1 How can a game that is so simple, be so challenging and fun at the same time? I mean really? I have never played a game where the instructions were so short and simple. I watched the tutorial video and thought to myself this was going to be simplest and easiest game I’ve ever played. There must be something more to it than that right??? Maybe I should stop asking so many questions and give a few answers.
