Why “Rayman Adventures?” Ubisoft recently released “Rayman Adventures” for the iOS and Android. That is the latest installment to the Rayman platform game series that has plenty of fans. This addition to the franchise has revamped controls and new gameplay elements. Gameplay Previous Rayman games on the iOS and Android were more like endless runners in which Rayman runs in one direction and players tap to jump and swipe to wipe out the monsters. In…

Why AZZL? The puzzler is arguably the biggest genre on the app store, with good reason. It generally offers the pick-up-and-play factor — that makes mobile gaming so appealing — in spades. This in mind, “AZZL” had a difficult niche to carve out, the fact that it too belongs in this genre surely not helping its mass appeal. Thankfully, the game not only carves a niche, it almost invents one. It’s a sliding puzzle game where the…

Star Wars This official “Star Wars” app is a must-have for all hardcore fans. It delivers breaking news and social media updates straight to your smartphone.

Nintendo and DeNA’s joint mobile endeavor for iPhones and Android, Miitomo, is focused on social aspects of gaming. It will likely be released in early 2016. Nintendo’s first game for modern mobile devices was supposed to be available in October of 2015, but development issues have delayed its release until March of 2016. This news was a let down for both gamers and investors, driving Nintendo’s stock down a whopping 10 percent. Not much is…

Why Kimoji? As the name eloquently implies, Kimoji is an app built around emojis. The icon pack is added directly to your main iPhone keyboard, and truly allows you to convey some gut-wrenching emotions — I have a huge butt, or my pants are round my ankles, for example. This aside, Kimoji is horribly overpriced, buggy, and just not very useful. What little fun you can have with it — namely trolling and/or joking around…

Reality star Kim Kardashian may be best known for her popular television series, but she also dabbles in the digital realm. After the immense success of her debut app “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood,” and her attempt to break the internet back in 2014, the American beauty is at it once again with the launch of “Kimoji” — which purportedly wreaked havoc on the app store. https://twitter.com/KimKardashian/status/679057097074413568?lang=en A series of tweets from her official Twitter account articulated the entire…

Why Swing Copters 2? It’s hard to say really. Since “Flappy Bird” launched in 2013, a whole host of games have been released that follow a similar design. They use basic sprites and simple, bare-bones gameplay mechanics — to make them cheap to produce — and put leaderboards and scoring at the forefront. They’re designed to keep you coming back for more, hopefully spending your money while doing so, and “Swing Copters 2” is no exception.…

Why Imago – Transformative Puzzle Game? Because it has the potential to become one of the next big games on the app store. A beautifully crafted puzzler in which you slide blocks to match them by color, “Imago” has a great sense of adventure about it — no matter how many times you play each level, there will always be a different solution for you to find, which consistently had me coming back for more.…

These days we expect most flight shoot em ups to be 3D with a first or third-person perspective. The more traditional top-down 2D format for the genre, which was once prevalent, seems to have been largely sidelined by most developers, except perhaps Art In Games that launched AirAttack. The original AirAttack had a top-down format mixed in with 3D effects, and the developer has just launched a sequel for that game this December. AirAttack 2…

Why Shape Escape? Shape Escape is a simple puzzle game in which you attempt to guide a small orb to the end of each level, tapping the screen to dodge spikes and land through holes. The levels range from incredibly easy to frustratingly difficult, and this radical learning curve is one of many things wrong with the game – it alienates the player in the very short span of a 30 second long stage. Gameplay…

If there is one thing holding iOS games back it’s controls. The iPhone and iPad do not have analog sticks or D-pads, which does limit what developers can do with iOS games a little. Wikipad is a company that has committed itself to enhancing gaming on tablet and phones with new control pads. Among them is the Gamevice first launched on the iPad mini. Now the Gamevice has also become available for the iPhone 6…

Why “Gopogo”? From developer Nitrome, “Gopogo” is the latest iOS and Android game that is essentially a cash grab app – one that appears to be free, but in reality, requires financial commitment in order to be a complete experience. Here, you are tasked with navigating a series of platforming levels atop a pogo stick – using your finger to control the angle of the bounce. Your goal is to reach the flag at the…

It is considered one of the best platform series alongside the Mario and Sonic franchises. Now Ubisoft has released its latest addition to the franchise, Rayman Adventures, on the iOS and Android platforms this December. Rayman Adventures has a similar 2D format to previous additions to the series. Unlike most…
