    Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: EPIC? NO. GOOD? YES.
    One Epic Knight is a 3D endless runner in the Temple Run vein that brings some new elements to the table, but has one slight tweak to it that keeps it from greatness.

    4Q Interview: Critical Thought Games - geoDefense Swarm

    Posted by Chris Hall on October 2nd, 2009

    Being a huge fan or geoDefense Swarm, I decided to dig a bit deeper into the diabolical mind of one of the most challenging games in the app store. For this four question (4Q) interview, I snagged David Whatley, the President of Critical Thought Games and the President/CEO of Simutronics Corp, developers of the Hero Engine which was used most recently in Star Wars: The Old Republic. The questions meander from app store longevity to iPhone MMO's, but most surprising are his plans to save the world from aliens!

    Check out the full four question interview after the break. Enjoy!
