Air Patriots Review: Air Patriots finds new ground in tower defense, in-app purchases

Nov 5, 2012

Mobile and social games present developers with a unique challenge. Since many of the games are simpler and less expensive to make than major console or PC titles, it's hard to charge much. At the same time, no one expects developers to give everything away. You have to make a profit somehow, which is what brought about the less-than-beloved practice of in-app purchases.

Little Labyrinths Review: How quickly can you solve a maze?

Apr 19, 2012

As the sophomore release from FlipShip creator ByteSize Games, Little Labyrinths initially appears to zig where FlipShip zagged. Scratch beneath the surface though, and you’ll find that this release doesn’t stray too far from its predecessors ideals. Both games are about intuitive gameplay, quick bursts of play, and plenty of reasons to come back.

Flight Control Rocket Review: Flight Control Rocket improves on the classic formula, but at the cost of constant panhandling

Mar 22, 2012

The original Flight Control by Firemint is still a showcase title for the iOS. Whereas many studios struggle to import console games and implement traditional controls on a platform that was never designed for them, Flight Control is tailored to suit the touchscreen's strengths.

Space Tap Review: Space Tap is a decent line-drawing game, but lacks its promised tower defense element

Feb 14, 2012

There's a brewery in the area with the slogan, "Do one thing, really, really well." That, in a nutshell, is Space Tap. It's a well-groomed pony that knows one trick and one trick only, and how much you get out of it depends entirely on how long it takes you to get sick of it.
