+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: AMERICAN HAM
The only thing wrong with Ammo Pigs' fantastic retro action is that there isn't more of it.

Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE
2-Bit Cowboy has a lot of great ideas, but they just never quite pay off.

Cavorite 3 looks nice and has a clever mechanic at the heart of it, but it just never feels right.

Cascadia Game's GameDock Will Make Playing iOS Games on TV Much More Comfy

As someone who’s played lots of iOS games and by extension sampled lots of virtual control schemes, external control attachments such as the iCade intrigue me. Tapping the screen is fine and all, but sometimes having physical buttons to press can make a world of difference. Lots of other people seem to think so, too, which aeis why these kinds of peripherals have a place in the market. It’s all well and good for portable play, but what about when I’m at home? Sure AirPlay allows users to game on their TV, but the iOS device is still the primary control. Which is exactly why we have brilliant entrepreneurs like the folks at Cascadia Games (the creators of Cavorite) creating stuff like the GameDock.

The GameDock will essentially be an iOS console, with all the awesomeness that implies. Users simply have to plug their iPhone or iPad into the dock, which is in-turn connected to the TV via an HDMI cable, and start playing any iCade supported titles on the big small screen. The handy dashboard app allows users to select their desired game via the connected controller, so they don’t even have to get off the couch. And just in case anyone wants to use the GameDock but doesn’t have a TV (or at least one with HDMI inputs), everything can be played right on the connected iOS device.

Cascadia Games’ Kickstarter for this most glorious of add-ons is just past the halfway mark for its $50,000 goal. With 35 days to go, there’s plenty of room for more backers. Come on, you know this is an awesome idea.

Cavorite 2 Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Rob Rich on March 15th, 2012
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: MORE IS BETTER
When the core elements are pretty freakin' great, it's hard not to enjoy getting more of the same. With a few minor additions, of course.

Cavorite Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Rob Rich on July 8th, 2011
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: UNEXPECTED
While it may look like an action-platformer at first glance, Cavorite has more to do with block-pushing (and floating) puzzles than shooting. Thankfully it's a lot of fun so that's okay.
