Big Buck Hunter is one of the most popular, well-known arcade hunting games. Developed in 2001 by Play Mechanix Inc., it spawned multiple sequels and is still seen in many arcades today. Thanks to developers Super Happy Fun Fun this ridiculously fun game is now available for your iDevice. Boy Howdy, it’s huntin’ time!
While a lot of companies consider pre-launch publicity an integral part of iPhone game publishing, Activision prefers otherwise. Out of the blue, (or out of the dead more likely) this titan of the entertainment industry released Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies – the famous and hugely popular level for Call of Duty: World at War. Why am I saying this? Well, because they released it for the iPhone!
With the iPhone and iPod Touch now widely considered as THE mobile gaming platform, most of the major game publishers – save for Activision (Call of Duty and Tony Hawk series, among others) - have a presence at the App Store. Well, you can finally add them into the mix as Activision have dropped the Z-bomb with their release of Call of Duty: World At War: Zombies.
Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies brings the classic Call of Duty: World at War zombie-slaying game mode to the iPhone™ and iPod® Touch. Featuring the original zombie map “Nacht der Untoten” (Night of the undead), fight to survive in the barricaded bunker where it all began – and you can bring along your friends to help push back the endless waves of attacking zombies.
It should be noted that this isn’t a full blown or all new Call of Duty, rather, it is based on the bonus zombie mode found on CoD: World at War. The great news though is that not only can you blow up ‘em zombies, but you can do it together with up to 4 players in Wi-Fi multiplayer mode. Stay tuned as ChiffaN will be reporting back shortly with his review.

Side-scrolling shooters have been among the most popular games since their first arcade debut. Technology has certainly moved on since then and now you can enjoy games right in the palm of your hands that the ancestors of today’s consoles could only dream about. Cell War, one the latest addition to the genre by TipCat Mobile offers the blend of state-of-the-art graphics with classic addictive game-play. Can they deliver on their offers? Let’s find out!
Ocarina no more: Killerina. I am T-pain no more: I Kill T-Pain. And Leaf Trombone? Liver Trombone! This Halloween, Smule have been possessed by the horrible deamons behind the horrid creeper, Attack of the Zombie Bikini Babes from Outer Space. Not sure what happened, but damn, things are titillatingly ugly. The undead attackers acutely resemble Marina Orlova of hot for words; in fact, I reckon they may have cloned her! At this point, maybe it doesn’t matter because with the horrible holiday on its way, there is just time enough to grab yer guns… er, yer slingshots and blast them baddies who creep out from the graves.
Ahh, the joys of hurtling heavy lead missiles at both suspecting and unsuspecting enemies! Sniper Vs. Sniper isn’t your local arcade shooting game; you won’t find a great plot, nor impressive 3D cutscenes. But, those things only a pretty shooter do make; Sniper Vs Sniper is an interesting showcase, a game which pulls the trigger on excellent iDevice gaming manners, and better than ever, adds online killing into the mix.
Another music related game has gone free for the weekend. First it was MEVO & The Grooveriders, a fun rhythm platformer brought to you by Red Rocket Games .

I’ve said quite often in the past that when it comes to games for the iPlatform, my favorites are almost always the “pick up and play” style games. They are usually the easiest to learn and the most addictive. Outside of gaming, one of my longest passions is graffiti art. Up until a little over a month ago, I would have never expected those worlds to collide. Thanks to the powerhouse team of Chillingo and Kinelco and their latest App Store title Underground, I couldn’t be happier.
“Two astronauts awaken in a hyper-sleep chamber aboard a seemingly abandoned spacecraft. It’s pitch black, they are disoriented, and the only sound is a low rumble and creak from the belly of the ship. They can’t remember anything: Who are they? What is their mission? With Lt. Payton staying behind to guide him via radio transmitter, Cpl. Bower ventures deep into the ship and begins to uncover a terrifying reality. Slowly the spacecraft’s shocking, deadly secrets are revealed…and the astronauts find their own survival is more important than they could ever have imagined.” [courtesy of imdb]
