DJ Mix Tour in Review – Pump Up The Jam

djmixtour1

Tap Tap Revenge’s fame is unparalleled. Just as Tap Tap Revenge brought on an onslaught of clones and apps similar that were trying to steal its limelight, so did other well known games such as Flight Control. DJ Mix Tour doesn’t fall into the category of being a Tap Tap Revenge clone, but more or less a variation of the popular franchise with its own sui generis aspects and high quality Gameloft flare.

Assassin’s Creed to Creep into App Store: Buyer’s and Infidel’s Beware

news-assassinscreed-ac_pr_03

Gameloft‘s Assassin’s Creed has been whispered to be soft-footing it toward our favourite buttonless platform in what is destined to be the biggest gaming year for the iDevice to date [sic]. If either Assassin’s Creed or the name Altairr ings a bell, it is because the DS sported both in a port from the successful XBOX and Playstation 3 titles. So, in the spirit of other ports from the DS, Gameloft will bring us the stealthy thriller for the iPhone as early as next week. Be sure to check out our review.

UNO in Review – Set to the Soundtrack of U2′s ‘One’

uno1There are few card games that do not use the standard deck of poker cards that achieve fame and recognition. Magic the Gathering, Pokemon, Hwatu (A Korean Game)… the list hold a scant amount of names. Uno, though, deserves a space in this pantheon of amazing and great card games.

The App game UNO, published by Gameloft, also deserves distinction. It both faithfully translates the game to the iDevice platform and delivers excellent and intuitive controls.

The Oregon Trail in Review – Patience is a Virtue

oregontrail1I was looking forward to playing Oregon Trail, simply based on everyone’s nostalgia of playing this classic title on their Apple II.  I can admit I never played the game (at least I don’t remember playing it when I was younger).  It seems it was an educational game played in many elementary schools and was also an extremely difficult game.  This doesn’t seem to be the case here.  It seems to be a very polished, but an extremely forgiving game.
