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...

Call of Duty: Strike Team [$6.99] was released this past August, and was a wonderful example of how you bring a big-time console franchise played with traditional controllers to a touchscreen platform like iOS. It featured an action-packed single-player campaign filled with all the over-the-top drama and excitement of its console big brothers, but with one very smart addition that completely changed how it played: at any time you could switch between normal first-person view to a top-down view on the fly...

It was all the way back in April of 2011 that developer SoMoGa announced that they were working on an iOS port of Lunar Silver Star Story, a classic RPG that graced the Sega CD and PlayStation in the '90s. SoMoGa had done the excellent iOS port of another Saturn RPG, Vay [$0.99], so we were really excited to see what they could do with Lunar. Well, as with most things that people are excited for, it took a lot longer than expected but Lunar Silver Star Story Touch [$6.99] finally did arrive in the App Store in September of last year...

Today Epic and Chair have detailed their forthcoming update to the mega-hit Infinity Blade III [$6.99]. The expansion pack is called Soul Hunter and will be a free update for owners of the game. It adds a new campaign quest which sees Isa and Siris face off against a new enemy threat: Oslim the Deathless Bloodmage. As the story goes, Oslim was sent by the Worker of Secrets to kill Isa and Siris in an effort to prevent them from uncovering the secrets of an ancient observatory. One very cool aspect about this new enemy Oslim is that he sports dual Infinity Blade weapons, and if you do manage to defeat him you'll be able to take hold of those dual weapons for yourself when playing as Siris...

It's been a slow process, but Mojang is still plugging away at Minecraft - Pocket Edition [$6.99] in order to make it a more feature-complete version of the popular crafting adventure game. The folks at Droid Gamers offer up some new details on what we can expect from the forthcoming 0.8.0 and 0.9.0 version updates to the game...

Early last month Activision surprised everyone with the release of Call of Duty: Strike Team [$6.99], but perhaps more surprising than unleashing a new entry in one of the biggest video game franchises in the world without any prior warning was how brilliantly Strike Team was crafted for the touchscreen. At any given time, you could switch between the normal first-person view and a top-down view, the latter letting your control your team of soldiers via line-drawing and tap gestures. First-person shooter virtual controls have always been finicky for some folks, so an option to play the game from the alternate perspective was a welcome one. Plus, it added to the strategy of each mission in a way that not even the console Call of Duty games could do. We really enjoyed Strike Team in our review for these reasons and more...

'Pandemic: The Board Game' for iPad Review - Saving the World, One Sneeze at a Time

Many of us dream of saving the world, but few really get that opportunity. Pandemic: The Board Game [$6.99 (HD)] is a cooperative board game that tasks you with stopping four deadly diseases before they consume the world. It has already been a blockbuster on tabletops, attracting the likes of Wil Wheaton, and now it's taking the App Store by storm. This first time effort from developer F2Z has a lot riding on it. Let’s see if it lives up to expectations...

'Transport Tycoon' Review - All Aboard for a Great Ride

The year was 1994. It was a more innocent time. The 80s had been over for a few years (sadly), and music was about six years away from sucking. There was a man named Chris Sawyer. Years before he sucked away our lives with Rollercoaster Tycoon, he killed our social life with a business management sim, something that was new at the time...

'Infinity Blade III' Hits the App Store

What's left to say? Infinity Blade is one of the biggest (if not THE biggest) franchises on the App Store, and the final entry in the epic trilogy Infinity Blade III [$6.99] is now available to download. We've already posted our full review, noting that once again the Infinity Blade series has marked the graphical benchmark for iOS games, but also that it brings even more of the fantastic one-on-one battling that has defined the series for the past three years. It's more Infinity Blade, but bigger, better and more beautiful than it's ever been...

Racing games on mobile platforms can be a bit of a mixed bag. Between the abuse of IAPs and the finicky nature of tilt and touch controls alone, it's hard to really find a good racer these days. 2K Drive [$6.99] is aiming high, attempting to take the throne from Real Racing 3 in the realm of more simulation-style racers, and in the process, it's a solid addition to the mobile racing genre...

'Call of Duty: Strike Team' Review - A Precision Single-Player Strike

Considering it's been nearly two years since we've seen a Call of Duty game hit iOS, we were pretty surprised when the folks at Activision seemed to conjure up Call of Duty: Strike Team [$6.99] out of thin air. Even more interesting was Strike Team being billed as a whole new Call of Duty adventure, and not just a port of a gameplay mode from a console game. While this alone would make most gamers hyped to check it out, I'm happy to report that Strike Team is simply an incredible game in its own right. Successfully taking the essence of Call of Duty and infusing it into a mobile package, Strike Team is a must-own...

Activision Releases 'Call of Duty: Strike Team' On The App Store

Boy, there's nothing quite like a surprise release of a totally new Call of Duty iOS game to start your morning. It's called Call of Duty: Strike Team [$6.99] and it's been totally built with mobile devices in mind. Featuring both traditional first person mode as well as a third-person view to manage your entire squad, Call of Duty: Strike Team seems like it's ticking all the checkboxes that makes for an awesome Call of Duty game...

When Deus Ex: The Fall [$6.99] released last month, it blew the minds of a lot of people by offering a very Deus Ex experience in a very mobile package. It also tied into the world and story of the critically acclaimed Deus Ex: Human Revolution on consoles and PC as well as that game's prequel novel 'Deus Ex: Icarus Effect', making it a real treat for fans of the series who were really engrossed in the universe. Also, it was just a damn fun shooter in its own right, though a bit short. We really enjoyed The Fall in our review and are very much looking forward to more content...
