In 2010, MovieCat [$1.99] took the App Store by storm. It was one of my favorite quiz apps mostly because of how simplistic the format was, marrying uniquely presented film topics with adorable cats. The art style was just as unique, and had its own charm to it, and the trivia was easy enough to get into with multiple difficulty levels. Over three years later MovieCat 2 [$1.99] doesn't change a whole lot, but it's still the same great formula you know and love, updated with newer references and films. And I'm pretty much okay with that...

If you recall about a month ago we took a brief look at the newest game from developer Color Monkey, makers of the awesome pinball game Revenge of the Rob-O-Bot [$2.99]. Today that game, called Sortle - Get your facts straight! [Free], is now available for the very affordable price of free...

Super School Day [$0.99] plays like any other of the mini-game collections on the App Store, yet it manages to not bore by being (so damn) charming. From the second the game launches it’s crackin’ jokes, successfully entertaining with style and personality. Don’t be fooled, Super School Day is actually a not-so-casual, challenging, laugh-in-the-face of mini-game collections - and succeeded at becoming a by-the-hour affair with me and my iOS devices. These days games like *that* are a rare breed...

The setting and characters in Murder Files (formerly Blue Toad Murder Files) [$2.99] are bursting at the seams with English flavour, so when I first heard about the game, I wondered if it would have a similar feel to the Sherlock Holmes stories I've loved since I was a kid. Nope; not at all. Once I started playing, however, I found it to be very reminiscent of another, completely different style of detective story I also enjoyed in my earlier years. I remember devouring the type of books where a couple neighborhood whiz-kids on summer vacation would decide to start an amateur detective agency. During their search for, say, old Mrs. Johnson's missing cat, they'd uncover million dollar jewel heist or some such, foil the culprit, and maybe even make the front page of the school newspaper...

I'm not always a fan of comparing games as "something meets something", but in the case of the just released Quizboard [Free] from Planeto I can't really think of a better descriptor than it's like Words With Friends meets Trivial Pursuit. Asynchronous multiplayer games seem to be the best fit for most mobile gaming titles, and Quizboard takes this to the trivia genre with a few interesting twists...

If Jeopardy [$4.99 / HD] and Trivial Pursuit [$.99] got together after a drunken night spent staring at YouTube football-in-the-crotch videos, popular culture rags, and irreverent comedy routines, the fruits of that night of passion and drunken perusing of media would be You Don’t Know Jack, one of the most irreverent and entertaining quiz show games ever. And for the first time, it’s poised to grace iOS devices -- though, the question of “when” still remains...

Last week we took a look on a clever multiplayer quiz game called Go Native! [Free]. Instead of needing to guess the correct answer like most trivia games, Go Native! asks you to choose the most popular answer amongst all of the other players playing the game. We explained how this all works in our review:..

In the wake of how much fun I've been having with MovieCat!, I've been on the hunt for other trivia games to add to my arenal. It was at this point that I stumbled across Go Native! [99¢], which offers an oddly amusing untraditional take on trivia. In Go Native! you play the role of a native trying to, well, fit in with the natives. Fitting in involves answering an onslaught of questions, but instead of needing to answer questions correctly, you're trying to guess the answer that the majority of other players picked...

Exclusive Sneak Peeks: Gilded Skull Games 'Imp or Oaf?' and 'Galactic Keep: Dice Battles'

Rob Lemon of Gilded Skull Games dropped us a note about two titles they have in the works for the iPhone. The first is Imp or Oaf?, a quirky guessing game where a portion of an image is shown, and players can either decide if they're looking at an imp or an oaf. Tapping the image zooms out a bit, and scoring is based on how far you needed to zoom out on each image for the round...

As a child of the 80's, it was a big deal when my school was one of the few in my area that had a complete computer lab in the library with an Apple II for each student in the class. The catch? All the "games" available all had to do with math or typing. Spielhaus's MindRacer Duel [App Store] provides quite a bit of personal nostalgia, as you're forced to solve math problems on one of three difficulty settings to make your car travel down the race track...

Fans of everyone's favorite game show will be pleased to hear that Sony Pictures Television has just released Jeopardy! [App Store] for the iPhone and iPod touch...

Fans of the gameshow may be interested to see that Capcom has released an iPhone version of Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader [$9.99, App Store]. For those not familiar with the game show, Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader is a game show in the U.S. in which adult contestants are asked grade-school level questions opposite a 5th grader. ..
