Moral Decay Review

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
By Chris Kirby on January 31st, 2011
Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: DIFFICULT!
It's a real, honest-to-goodness throwback to the side-scrollers of the 1980s, but are you ready for that kind of difficulty again?

By Chris Hall on January 28th, 2011
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: TEDIOUS
Legendary Wars is a solid side scrolling castle defense game, but it requires more micromanagement than I'm willing to put in.

Illusia Review

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
By Chris Hall on December 14th, 2010
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: UNINSPIRED
RPG fans will get sucked in by the typical RPG formula (get quest, kill X number of enemies, collect gold/XP), but everything in Illusia has been done before. It's good, but not great.

The Red Star Review

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
By Ryan Wood on July 19th, 2010
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: HARD!!! BUT GOOD
Action packed Red Star is a great addition to the 2.5d side scroll genre in the app store. A high difficulty level may hold back some, but overall it's a great game.

Giant Moto Review

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
By Jason Fanguy on April 19th, 2010

Mass Effect: Jacob's Story Officially Confirmed

Posted by Bryan Barletta on May 4th, 2009

Last week, a member of a focus testing group broke his NDA and provided Joystiq with information and images of a previously unknown title called Mass Effect: Jacob's Story for the iPhone and iPod Touch. What was made available at that time was that this game would follow right behind the highly anticipated Mass Effect 2 story-wise. You'll be taking the roll of Jacob Taylor, "a biotic-powered super-soldier who stumbles across a plot to terrorize civilization's greatest beacon of hope." The final bit of information we were left with was that the game would last about 2 hours and cost $2.99.

Astraware Platypus Sneak Peek

Posted by Jeff Scott on November 21st, 2008

No word on the release date yet but would expect it soon. Hit the read more link for the video.
