The Jim & Frank Mysteries: The Blood River Files Review

The Jim & Frank Mysteries: The Blood River Files Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
This pastiche of a game offers an enjoyable enough batch of puzzles. Unfortunately, they're wrapped in a forgettable and poorly animated storyline.

Wallace & Gromit: The Last Resort for iPad Review

Wallace & Gromit: The Last Resort for iPad Review

iPad Only App - Designed for the iPad
A delightful and fun recreation of Wallace and Gromit on the touchscreen. Unfortunately it's marred by technical glitches that not only annoy, but can get in the way of playability.

Xenome Episode 1 In-Depth Review

Xenome Episode 1 In-Depth Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Xenome Episode 1 scores points for its interesting premise and technical achievements, but its plodding, grinding game play really brings down the experience.

muBlip Review

muBlip Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Delivering a refreshing spin on the musical rhythm genre, muBlip will hook you with its slick light-and-colors show and electronica soundtrack.

1942: First Strike Review

1942: First Strike Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Capcom Mobile's 1942: First Strike doesn't quite do their arcade classic justice, especially with dodgy controls that are hard to calibrate. There are better top-down shooters out there.

iFontMaker for iPad Review

iFontMaker for iPad Review

iPad Only App - Designed for the iPad
Billed as "the first font editor exclusive for iPad," 2TTF's handy little app does as advertised: it lets you easily make a font from your own handwriting. It's a bit limited in its usefulness, it's still cheaper than similar online services.

The Hockey Experiment Review

The Hockey Experiment Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
This largely unsuccessful game just isn't imaginative enough to capitalize on its premise. Mischievous science experiments with monstrous looks need to do more than skate around and hit the puck.

Prince of Persia: Warrior Within Review

Prince of Persia: Warrior Within Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Gameloft takes on the unenviable challenge of porting an entire console game to the iPhone. The result is a playable, though not perfect, console-quality experience that brings all the scope and action of the original, but suffers from complicated controls.

Infect Them All Review

Infect Them All Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
A clever little take on the zombie genre, putting you in the shoes of a hungry ghoul feasting on flesh. As you make friends (literally) and ingest people, you'll get a kick out of this game, though it will get repetitive after awhile.

Farmville Review

Farmville Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Farmville finally makes it to the iPhone. This app is exactly the sort of tool Farmville fans need to keep tending their virtual plots while on the go. If you're not into Farmville on Facebook, however, you can give this app a pass.

Zombie Infection Review

Zombie Infection Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
While Zombie Infection rises only to the level of Resident Evil imitator, it does a bang-up job of it. With plenty of zombies to shoot and a fun B-movie vibe, it's the a great survival horror game for the iPhone.

Zombie Wonderland Review

Zombie Wonderland Review

iPad Only App - Designed for the iPad
Chillingo attempts to put a new spin on the zombie survival game with Zombie Wonderland by adding task management and tower defense elements. They only partially succeed; while there's some fun to be had in blasting away zombies, the game suffers from being short and repetitive.

Rocket Racing League Review

Rocket Racing League Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Rocket Racing League is a fast and pretty arcade racer based on the upcoming real-world Rocket Racing League. It keeps its marketing message in check and delivers a competent racing experience.

LightBike 2 Review

LightBike 2 Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
While Light Bike 2 does a good job of mimicking a TRON light cycle battle, it doesn't build a strong enough game around that experience to encourage prolonged play. Network issues also plague the game.

Trainyard Review

Trainyard Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Trainyard is a clever, casual puzzle game that challenges you to both plan routes and match colors. In an App Store glutted with Doodle Jump clones and match-three retreads, it offers a novel puzzle experience.
