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.

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.

A number of apps have arrived for the coming Halloween season.

The now legendary Flight Control ignited a revolution on the iPhone when it first arrived back in spring. Since then, a whole new generation of “Finger Tracing” games has been launched. Some have been straightforward rip-offs and others, original games that used the new control system as a tool rather as a complete formula for a game. Which one is Space Dock? Stay tuned, stay tuned, stay…
Another day, another Gameloft game release. The game company has come a long way with much success. My thumbs are blistered and my wrists bloodless and the culprit is one of Gameloft’s excellent games. The latest bloodletting addition to Gameloft’s pantheon of time consuming games is Blades of Fury.
Just as there’s an app for pretty much anything you need, there seems to be a game for just about every type of person. Whether you’re into racing, hunting, maths, or … gardening. The latest in the pick up and play format to fall into my hands is geared toward the latter.
The bean bag toss is one of the oldest and simplest games around. It just doesn’t get much simpler than putting a bag in a hole (TWSS!). Kids and adults alike have been playing it for years.
