Adventure gamers will go ga-ga over Mumbo Jumbo’s Samantha Swift and the Fountains of Fate — particularly if you enjoy scavenger hunts, though the game offers quite a bit more than that. And at $9.99 (pretty pricy for an iOS game), it had better.
While some games challenge your ability to button-mash or tap your touchscreen in time with a particular rhythm, Bayo Bongo sets out to test just how fast you can tap your iPad’s screen at all. The game’s deceptively simple premise is that it shows you a screen filled with blocks of varying colors; your aim […]
iTunes is full of match-3 games, but Chainz Galaxy offers match-3 gameplay of a decidedly different flavor. Instead of matching colored jewels or beads, Chainz Galaxy has you joining chain links, which sounds simple on the surface but changes the entire dynamic of how you play.
As it turns out, Clue: Secrets & Spies for iPad has nothing to do with the board game Clue. It shares the brand image, and there are some peripheral “secret agent” characters referenced who share their names with the iconic Mrs. White, Mr. Green, and so forth, but you won’t spend your time solving a […]

Like so many iOS games, Doodle Fit offers super-simple, gameplay that makes for a perfect time-wasting in shortÂ or long periods of time. The latter is more likely, as […]
There are very few games that pique my interest – I’m not what you’d call a hardcore gamer. However, Rage for iOS has my full and undivided attention plus the cost of entry — it’s that good! Rage for iOS is another media marvel from id Software, the fine folks who brought you Quake and […]
id Software has released the extremely interactive and gory first-person shooter RAGE for all iOS devices. The game is a scaled down version of the forthcoming Mac/PC release but packs a visual punch. RAGE, priced at an extremely affordable $0.99 for the Standard Definition version of the game and only $1.99 for the High Def […]
LEGO has released a clever little game for the iPad, and it’s entirely free. Based on the LEGO board game Creationary, the object is simple: while you watch as the game builds something, you have to guess what’s being built. The game gives you four possibilities to choose from, and you have to pick which […]
