+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Another blockbuster movie, another disappointing movie tie-in game. Captain America: The Winter Soldier - The Official Game wears out its welcome before you can even finish saying the title.

CLARC Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Romance. Kidnapping. Heroics. Inebriated robots? Trust me, it works. CLARC is an action-puzzle game not to be missed.

FTL: Faster Than Light Review

iPad Only App - Designed for the iPad

Pixel Hunter Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Best bring nerves of steel to Lemondo Entertainment's Pixel Hunter - or at least an ample supply of blood-pressure medication.

Puzzling Rush Review

Puzzling Rush Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
The only truly puzzling thing about Puzzling Rush is why the developers didn't do more with this fantasy themed 'match-3' game. It's not really much of a rush either, truth be told.

Playing Favorites Review

Playing Favorites Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Playing Favorites scratches that Cards Against Humanity itch in a much less crass manner. As un-crass as scratching oneself in public can ever be, that is.

Block Fortress: War Review

Block Fortress: War Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Questionable design choices and punishingly punitive gameplay make for a somewhat disappointing follow-up to Foursaken Media's smash hit.

Asteroids Gunner Review

Asteroids Gunner Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Atari resurrects the classic space-shooter franchise in this freemium release.

Read The Full Review »

Sarge and his partner Trysh have been contracted for a dangerous job. They have to disable a beacon hidden aboard an human ship that, if activated, could prove disastrous in the ongoing war between the United Terra Initiative and the alien Nova Imperium.

Sounds rough, right? But hey, a guy’s gotta pay his bills somehow. There’s never a dull moment in the life of an interstellar mercenary.

Sarge is the newest iOS release from Avalinx. Over six stages of hand-drawn 2D brawling, players will control the eponymous merc as he wades fist-first through hordes of alien foes in his quest to save the planet Zephyr… and get paid in the process.

The visuals are all hand-drawn, and from the trailer it appears that the fully-voiced story has a quirky sense of humor to match the cartoony presentation. There is nothing about that last sentence that is in any way unappealing to me.

Hurry up, though. Because while Avalinx is releasing Sarge for the very agreeable price of free, they’ve stated that it’s only for a limited time. So punch that time clock and start racking up an alien body count already.

FREE!
