Classic Reload: 'World of Goo HD'

Hello, gentle readers, and welcome to the Classic Reload, the monthly feature where we goo what we want. Each month, we take a look at a classic game from the annals of iOS history to see how it holds up in the here and now. It's a chance to revisit old favorites, reflect on their place in the overall library, or simply to take a deeper dive than our reviews typically allow. As the King Slime, I try to choose a balanced plate of games from month to month, but if there's something you really want to see, let me know by posting in the comments below. You might not see your suggestion soon, but I will add it to the master list for future consideration...

Classic Reload - 'Ridiculous Fishing: A Tale of Redemption'

Hello, gentle readers, and welcome to the Classic Reload, the monthly feature where we have issues with jellyfish. Each month, we take a look at a golden oldie from the App Store's past to see how it holds up in the here and now. It's a chance to revisit old favorites, reflect on their place in the overall iOS library, or simply to take a deeper dive than our reviews typically allow. I try to pick a balanced plate of games from month to month, but if there's something you really want to see, let me know in the comments below.

Classic Reload - 'Papa Sangre'

Hello, gentle readers, and welcome to the Classic Reload, the monthly feature where we spend a lot of time running into walls. Each month, we take a look at a game from the App Store's past to see how it holds up today. It's a chance to revisit old favorites, reflect on their place in the overall library, or just to take a deeper dive than our reviews typically allow for. As the leader of the underworld, I'll try to choose a nice variety of titles for this feature, but if there's something you really want to see, don't hesitate to make a suggestion in the comments below. You might not see your suggested game soon, since I plan my schedules fairly far in advance, but I will consider it for a future highlight...

Classic Reload - 'Waking Mars'

Hello, gentle readers, and welcome to the Classic Reload, the monthly feature where we know not what we do, but we do it just the same. Each month, we take a look at a game from the App Store's past to see how it holds up in the present day. It's a chance to revisit old favorites, reflect on their place in the overall iOS library, or simply to take a deeper dive than our reviews typically allow. I'll do my best to present an interesting selection of games in this feature, but if there's something you'd really like to see covered, please let me know by commenting below the article. I can't promise you'll see your suggestion soon, but I'll certainly consider it for a future highlight...

Classic Reload - 'Space Miner: Platinum Edition'

Hello, gentle readers, and welcome to another special Classic Reload, a semi-random feature where we take a look at a classic game from the App Store's past. Yes, it's been a couple of months since the last one, and I do apologize for that, but I hope to get on at least a monthly schedule from here on out. Anyway, for those who didn't read the last column or don't remember, the Classic Reload is a feature dedicated to digging out some iOS treasures that may not be getting much attention anymore. It's a chance to see how old favorites are holding up nowadays and take a deeper dive than we may have in past coverage. If you have suggestions for games to feature in the future, make sure you let me know by commenting below...

Classic Reload - 'Spider: The Secret Of Bryce Manor'

Hello, gentle readers, and welcome to the first edition of the Classic Reload, a semi-random feature where we take a look at classic games from the App Store's past. Yes, it's a spin-off of the RPG Reload, but let's hope this is more Laverne & Shirley than Joanie Loves Chachi. Anyway, the idea here is the same. There are lots of great games in the iOS library that don't get talked about much anymore, even though they're still worth playing. When the App Store was fairly young it wasn't a huge problem, but with several years and countless hundreds of thousands of new apps behind us, some really great games have become invisible to many players. The aim of this column is to pick out some of those games and give them a thorough going-through to see how they hold up in the modern day and take a deeper dive than we may have initially. This will not be a weekly feature, but I do plan to put one out every once in a while. Think of it as a hopefully-pleasant surprise you can expect now and then...
