I'm not surprised that Domowicz Creative Group has nothing new on their site announcing the release of The Manhattan Project [$6.99]. The last update mentions a potential november 2013 start date for a Kickstarter campaign. The campaign that ended last december did not reach it's goal. While I remain unstartled about the lack of updates on their site, I am kind of surprised this game got completed. I am torn about how I feel about the release. Part of me wishes it had not been released without proper funding. Another part of me was happy to see it out on iOS, but not like this. Not like this...

Way back in September of 2012, developer SoMoGa released a touch-friendly port of the classic RPG Lunar Silver Star Story. The port, appropriately called Lunar Silver Star Story Touch [$6.99], was really good, despite a few minor drawbacks. Unfortunately, Lunar Touch released right as the iPhone 5 came out, and being that it was based on a mid-90s Sega Saturn game, it wasn't exactly equipped to support the new 4-inch widescreen of the new iPhone...

If you're heavily into the Infinity Blade series and fancy having your own collection of figurines based on your in-game characters, then Chair and online 3D printing service Sandboxr have you covered. A new feature has just gone live in Infinity Blade III [$6.99] which allows you to customize an in-game character to your liking with the game's selection of different armors and weapons, and then with a tap of a button, send the character off to Sandboxr to have it printed out in color with their 3D printing service and shipped to your door...

Boasting visuals powered by Unreal Engine 4, the developers behind Angels In The Sky are obviously banking on a graphical backbone to power their on-rails shooter. While visuals can certainly pick up any game, there’s not much it can do for a game that suffers from fundamental gameplay issues. Unfortunately, with its relatively bland shooter mechanics combined with an IAP focused upgrade system, Angels In The Sky [$2.99] suffers from this issue, making it simply another pretty face...

'Modern Combat 5: Blackout' Multiplayer Review - A New Standard in iOS FPS MP

Gameloft’s Modern Combat series, like the Call of Duty’s and Battlefields before it, is usually a tale of two games. On the single player side, an action-packed (and typically short) adventure with a fantastical story typified the experience while multiplayer is a fast-paced endeavor with plenty of fragging accompanied with some sort of progression system. Modern Combat 5: Blackout [$6.99] fits the bill on the single player side (as evidence by our review), but does a great job expanding the series beyond what’s typically been expected on mobile on the multiplayer side. In fact, when it comes to multiplayer FPS titles on iOS, at this point there’s MC5, and there’s everything else...

'Modern Combat 5: Blackout' Single Player Review - Blurring the Lines Between Single and Multiplayer

After months of news, teaser trailers, and hands-on previews, Gameloft’s latest entry in its first-person shooter series is finally here. As was the case with MC4, there’s a lot to look it with this latest sequel, so this first part of the review focuses primarily on the single player campaign and underlying gameplay mechanics. In that regard, Modern Combat 5: Blackout [$6.99] is an excellent sequel that makes some dramatic improvements to said mechanics while keeping the actual FPS action mostly unchanged...

Ever since Vivid Games announced Godfire: Rise of Prometheus [$2.99] last year, we’ve been keeping a close eye on its development. For good reason too, as Vivid has a reputation for great games (see Real Boxing) and the thought of them creating a title in the same vein as God of War was an exciting prospect. Now that it’s finally here, it’s safe to say that the wait has been mostly worth it. Visually stunning, Godfire suffers from some gameplay monotony but is otherwise a great action-adventure title...

A great sale on KOTOR isn't the only Star Wars-related iOS news today, as Disney has also released a brand new app/game called Star Wars Journeys: The Phantom Menace [$4.99]. It's broken up into two main parts: an interactive visual storybook that retells the tale of Episode I: The Phantom Menace, and a pod racing game...

Two years ago, iOS players received a gem in Autumn Dynasty [$6.99], a beautiful real-time strategy game with a unique art style and excellently implemented gameplay. With the recently released Autumn Dynasty Warlords [$6.99], the stakes are raised significantly with a fully functioning turn-based strategy game incorporated on top of the core RTS gameplay. While this sounds like an awesome combination in theory, Warlords implementation leaves plenty to be desired...

Mojang has posted a quick blog entry on their website detailing a little bit about what they've been up to in regard to Minecraft - Pocket Edition [$6.99]. The number one request I've heard from players of Pocket Edition even since its initial release back in November of 2011 has been for bigger worlds and caves. Well, according to a new post on Mojang's blog, the Pocket Edition team has laid the foundation for those bigger worlds...

The huge Minecraft - Pocket Edition [$6.99] update which developer Mojang detailed back in October is now available in the App Store. The biggest addition is the ability to craft minecarts and rails to run them on. While Redstone is in the mobile version now in a limited capacity, you can't yet make circuits out of the Redstone dust, though it does seem you can power your minecart rails with it...

Infinity Blade III [$6.99] is set to receive what developer Chair is calling "The biggest Infinity Blade update ever!" next week, on December 19th. The update is called Ausar Rising, and features the return of Siris' previous incarnation Ausar the Vile. Together with Isa, they'll set out to destroy the dark mirror of Ausar in a series of new quests featuring new enemies which include two new Deathless. You'll also be able to return to the castle from the original Infinity Blade, the God King's Dark Citadel, for the first time, as well as other new environments...

Chair Entertainment's first ClashMob Special Event for Infinity Blade III [$6.99] kicks off this Friday December 13th, and ties into the upcoming film 47 Ronin from Universal Pictures. ClashMob participants will need to collaborate to take down the massive Samurai Brute, and if they're successful, will unlock the Brute's sword in their inventory for use in the rest of the game. According to Chair, this will be the only opportunity for players to obtain the Samurai Brute's sword. You can catch a glimpse of the Samurai Brute as well as a glimpse of the 47 Ronin movie in the following trailer...

'Lords Of Waterdeep' Review - A Great Conversion Of An Excellent Board Game

Playdek has built a good reputation converting trading card games to iOS, and their recent foray into board games, Agricola [$6.99], showed they know their way around that type of conversion just as well. Their latest release, Lords of Waterdeep [$6.99], is unsurprisingly another thoughtful adaptation, this time of Wizards of the Coast's 2012 hit Forgotten Realms board game. Like other mobile adaptations of board and card games, the advantages are clear. It's a lot cheaper, it's easier to play with friends, you can play solo against or fill out your multiplayer games with AI opponents, you don't have to set up or clean up, and cheating is considerably harder. If you happen to be a fan of the actual board game, I'll save you a few minutes of reading: this is a faithful version of the core game, so if that's what you were looking for, feel free to buy without remorse...

If you were a fan of the Infinity Blade series' seasonal helms, then you'll be happy to know that the first such helm is now available in the latest entry in the series Infinity Blade III [$6.99]. Being that Thanksgiving is tomorrow and that's a pretty darn major holiday, the themed helm is none other than a Turkey Helm which looks pretty similar to the ones from the previous game. You can nab the helm for both Siris and Isa, and reenact the warm turkey-headed embrace seen in this screenshot from Infinity Blade's website which announced the news...
