Classic games from yesteryear are finding new life on the iPhone and iPad — devices that have more than enough horsepower to run those old titles. More retro games are being added all the time, but here are 30 of our favorites.
Every year we try to find ways to spook our friends and this time I cracked it with HauntedFace Lite and ZombieBooth Lite for the iPhone. Yeah sadly no universal version yet but it works fine on the iPad. The app is similar to Photo Booth effects but turns your face into a horrendous mistake […]
