I don’t know about you, but all I can think about when I mow someone down or blow someone away in Payback² [$4.99 / $79.99] is Jesse Ventura as Blaine in the movie Predator throwing back the cover of his minigun, spitting out his chewing tobacco (real nasty habit he’s got there) and delivering that immortal one-liner, “Payback time!”..

Battleship is one of those rare games that seems to fit in the computer gaming world even better than the physical board game world in which it was created. There's nothing like the tension while playing a friendly match with a buddy. In many ways, that tension is what makes a simple game like Battleship so appealing...

If Apple packaged and sold a sneeze, you better believe Firemint would figure out a way to support it with Flight Control -- and fast, as the studio is often on the bleeding edge of all things Apple with its hallmark game. With this in mind, you might not be so surprised to learn today's bit of news: Firemint plans to release a free update to Flight Control HD [$4.99] that will add Game Center multiplayer support day and date with the release of the iOS 4.2...

I have been looking for an excuse to post about Armada: Galactic War [App Store], after overlooking its first sizeable update amidst the chaos of WWDC. It was a game I really enjoyed, despite nit-picking on a few issues. It turns out developer Pixel Stream was listening, and have addressed each of my complaints and further added a suite of features in response to player feedback and an entirely new freemium version!..

'Highborn' Review -- A Marriage of Winning TBS and High Fantasy Parody!

Our hands-on time with Highborn several weeks ago left us extremely impressed with what the ex-Westwood Studios developers (think Command & Conquer) at Jet Set Games had done with the turn-based strategy game and hopeful that its submission time with Apple would be a short one. Well, our prayers have been answered, as Highborn [App Store] is now available!..

Croquisoft, creators of Castle Fantasy [99¢], recently dropped the price of their other game, Finger VS. Finger [Free], to free. While it may not look that impressive from first glance if all you're looking at is screenshots, Finger VS. Finger is actually a surprisingly clever turn-based game that can both be played with AI opponents along with a full suite of multiplayer options to play with other people...

'X2 Soccer 2010' Review - iPhone Soccer Gets Even Better

The sequel to arguably the best soccer game on the iPhone is now available, and it's even better. X2 Soccer 2010 [$6.99] brings improvements to graphics, controls, computer AI, new game modes and more teams...

MiniSquadron [AppStore] brings to the platform a re-imagination of classic PC games such as Subspace Continuum and Soldat, but does so more in the fashion of the more recently released Altitude. Essentially, MiniSquadron is a 2D side-scrolling, physics-based aerial dog-fighting game. If you think that was a mouthful, MiniSquadron boasts 8 different levels, each with 12 increasingly challenging rounds and a whopping 56 different planes to unlock over the course of the game...

After a cool teaser video and a load of screenshots, Konami's Krazy Kart Racing [App Store] has been high on my list of games I really wanted to play. As of tonight, the wait is (almost) over, and Krazy Kart is actually surprisingly fun, especially when playing against friends in the various online multiplayer modes...

Xio Interactive's Mino [App Store] has all the gameplay of Tetris (and all the other associated clones) with one distinct advantage: Really cool real-time 5-player internet multiplayer...

Newtoy, developers of Chess With Friends [App Store] recently released Words With Friends App Store] bringing the same asynchronous multiplayer to the game of Scrabble (basically)...

When people ask me what I think about certain games, all too often my commentary includes “…and it would be really great if it had some kind of online multiplayer.” ..

EA is starting to experiment more with price flexibility by putting Scrabble [App Store] on sale for $7.99. The app is normally priced at $9.99 but is on sale for "a limited time." EA had similarly dropped Tetris from $9.99 to $7.99 (though on a permanent basis)...

Gyrocade has released a futuristic 3D take on the classic game of Pong with a distinctive Tron feel through the iTunes App Store.  Vector Pong uses the iPhone's accelerometer to control the player's paddle, enabling him/her to serve, deflect, and spike a puck down a 3D corridor against a computer opponent or another (human) player thanks to WiFi-enable network play...
