'Letterpress - Word Game' Review - Simple And Awesome

When I first heard that Loren Brichter of Atebits – creator of the groundbreaking Twitter client Tweetie (RIP) – was making an iOS game, I was extremely interested. After all, Tweetie demonstrated exceptional UI design and intuitiveness, as well as a clean aesthetic. Put all of those types of qualities towards an iOS game and, yeah, I'm totally on board...

As you're probably aware by now, Apple announced a brand new smaller version of their iPad today, dubbed the iPad mini. Following the keynote address by Apple's executive team in San Jose, a hands-on session was held where members of the tech press could actually get a feel for this new, more diminutive tablet. Here's a brief roundup of hands-on impressions from around the web, and we'll update this post as more roll in...

October 23rd, 2012 2:29 PM EDT by Eli Hodapp in iPad mini, News

Following the surprise announcement of a speed-bumped iPad was the iPad mini. If you were following the rumor scene, most of what people were expecting turned out to be true. It comes packed with a 7.9" display, a similar A5 processor to the iPad 2, and a price point that starts at $329 for the 16GB load-out. It's got a 1024x768 display, is as thing as a pencil and light as a pad of paper, even optionally including LTE just like the "big" iPad...

Apple Announces New 4th Generation iPad

October 23rd, 2012 2:06 PM EDT by Jared Nelson in iPad 4, News

During the Apple keynote this afternoon, Apple announced a brand new iPad (4th generation) model. Yes, just over 6 months after the release of "the new iPad" with Retina Display, we have a new new iPad...

Hundreds, Semi Secret Software's minimalistic puzzle game that tasks users with tapping and growing bubbles until they hit a specific threshold, is being re-introduced by Semi Secret. The reason? Apparently, a lot of things have changed. To name a few added elements: a new mode has been created, the number of puzzles has been bumped up, the presentation has been sharpened, and "something akin to a narrative layer" has been added since its initial debut at GDC 2012...

Sky Gamblers: Air Supremacy [$2.99] pops because it knows what it is: a super fast, over-the-top action game that plays it loose with physics and reality. That was our big takeaway from earlier this year when we went hands-on extensively with it following its surprise debut at the new iPad event where it helped show off that device's power and actual HD screen...

'Rayman Jungle Run' Review - A Run-Away Hit

Rayman Jungle Run [$2.99] is now my favorite iOS auto-runner. Granted, I wasn't the biggest fan of the genre, especially those with procedural, unending levels. Luckily, Rayman Jungle Run offers 40 distinct levels that require players to jump, hair-copter float, wall run, and punch or kick their way to the goal. ..

Far cheaper, less sweaty, and more bizarre than any real-world miniature golf course I've played on, Wonderputt [$0.99 (HD)] is a polymorphic putt-putt painting brought to life by the charming design of Damp Gnat...

Neat: Rovio Mobile's next game based in the Angry Birds universe doesn't star the Angry Birds. Instead, it puts the pigs front and center, and in a playable role...

Square Enix's latest iOS release is out, hot, and confusing the crap out of people. Final Fantasy Dimensions [Free] is a free download, but unlocking the full game will cost you more than Final Fantasy Tactics [$13.99] and Chrono Trigger [$9.99] combined. This is Dimensions' English-language debut, but it's not an iOS original. Oh, and you can get the free part now, but you can't buy it yet due to some strange App Store SNAFU where Dimension's in-game store shows no available chapters for purchase...

Surprise! Supergiant Games has been working on an iPad port of Bastion. It'll launch a little later tonight, as international releases worm their way across the globe. If you have played Bastion before, on either XBLA or in your browser or on PC, you'll feel at home with this version. While it does contain some minor tweaks, it's functionally the same game that you should have, and probably have, checked out before...

Words With Friends HD [$2.99] is, like, totally HD now. The game's latest update, which went live just the other afternoon, has added support for the new iPad's display. Version 5.0 also sees the addition of a new sidebar interface element that hooks you up with links to other Zynga games and lets you pester your friends via social media...
