Sudoku HD For iPad | Board/Family/Kids Games

Sudoku HD for iPad images

Sudoku is the perfect time filler. It takes careful planning and thought, and can easily eat up an afternoon. This version is well suited to the large 9.7-inch display, and it's easy to play — simply tap on an empty square and then the number you wish to enter. There are four difficulty levels, an auto-correction tool, timer and the ability to auto-fill boxes if you want to end the game. … [Read more...]

N.Y.Zombies For iPad | Action Games

N.Y.Zombie images

NY Zombies is fairly unique in its approach to wanton slaughter of the undead, somehow managing to combine elements of lightgun shooters like The House Of The Dead, in that you have no control over your movement other than where you're shooting, and the stoking of your survival instinct that made the recent Left 4 Dead so popular. It's somewhat limited, but it's well-suited to being played on a phone with missions never lasting more than a few … [Read more...]

LEGO Creationary For iPad | Board/Family/Kids Games

Lego Creationary Images

With Lego Star Wars, Lego Harry Potter and Lego Indiana Jones all hitting stores within the last couple of years, you'd be forgiven for thinking a certain child's toy is making somewhat of a comeback. Instead, the ironic humour behind a man composed of tiny pieces literally falling apart has risen anew, leaving Lego's more traditional role — giving children an easy introduction to how engineering works — abandoned. While this iPad title will … [Read more...]

Spider-Man : Total Mayhem HD For iPad | Adventure Games

spider-man-images

We're pretty sure that there isn't a decent computer format out there that hasn't had a Spider-Man game or two made for it. So, we can understand why consumers can treat the release of yet another game featuring the world's most famous web-clinger with a little indifference. Those of you that fall into this category need to seriously rekindle your faith in that little radioactive spider that bit Peter Parker and created one of the best comic book … [Read more...]

Blades Of Fury For iPad | Action Games

blades_of_fury_images

Gameloft must have some voodoo hidden up its sleeves. Against all odds it's managed to craft what's possibly the best control scheme for a beat-'em-up on the iPhone. The game offers the choice of a virtual joystick or D-pad for movement, with buttons on the right-hand side of the screen to control your attacks and defences. Using these it's easily possible to build up special attacks and combos. There are ten characters to choose from, each with … [Read more...]

Metal Gear Solid For iPad | Touch/Action Games

MetalGear images

Hideo Kojima's first iPhone game caused plenty of controversy when it was first announced, mainly because Xbox fanboys thought it was a new game for Microsoft's 360. Their loss is our gain, however, for Metal Gear Solid Touch proves to be an interesting take on the lightgun-styled games that are constantly popping up on Apple's machine. Even if it's not quite as sophisticated as we were hoping from the director of Konami's insanely popular … [Read more...]

Ice Age For iPad : Dawn Of The Dinosaurs | Adventure Games

IceAge Images

While this puzzle-platform adventure looks like a kids'game, it's good enough for anyone to enjoy. Its style is somewhat reminiscent of the old Oddworld game, with puzzle-solving, enemy evasion, and a deliberate pace taking precedence over twitch reactions. As a result, while it might prove too taxing for the youngest of children, anyone looking for some platform­ing that works the grey matter a will likely enjoy this a lot. … [Read more...]

Paperboy For iPad | Arcade Games

Paperboy images

Remember that version of Pac-Man that wasn't great in which he's given a female love interest? Okay, so Ms. Pac-Man exists and that may therefore be a bad example, but tampering with the classics is never a good idea. Like drawing a moustache on the Mona Lisa, everything starts to look out of place. Take this classic arcade conversion, for example. For starters, our hero has for some reason been given a narrative to plough through (other than … [Read more...]

Shanghai Mahjong For iPad | Board/Family/Kids Games

Shanghai Mahjong Images

There are quite a few variations of the classic tile matching games on the iPhone or iPad, but this is easily our favourite. While the lack of any sort of multiplayer annoys, there's a huge range of board layouts to work through, the controls work very well and you can choose from a variety of different tile faces (including classic movie posters). The price feels a little high, but this is nevertheless a solid translation of a decades old game. … [Read more...]

Zombie Infection For iPad | Adventure Games

zombieinfectionicon images

Gameloft has a reputation for translating full-blown console games to the iPhone, and although it lacks the licence, Zombie Infection is as close as you're go­ing to get to Resident Evil 5 in your hands. The opening stage, in a favela where the natives are less than friendly, could easily be mistaken for the Capcom game's first stage. Lack of origi­nality aside, though, Gameloft has managed to create an excellent adventure, with great … [Read more...]

Infinity Blade For iPad | Action Games

Infinity Blade for iPad | Essential iPad Apps

As the iPhone and iPad increases in popularity, more and more big name developers are starting to take notice, eager to earn a slice of the profitable Apple pie and perhaps earn some kudos in the process. Infinity Blade by Chair Entertainment — under the watchful eye of parent company Epic Games — is the latest developer to jump onboard, and the end result is arguably one of the best looking iPad games of all time. Utilising the Unreal … [Read more...]

Harbor Master HD For iPad | Arcade Games

harbor_master_images

This is one game where multitasking and quick re­flexes pay off As a harbour master, your task is to guide incoming boats and ships into dock. There are two types of boats, those with purple cargo and those with yellow cargo, with the corresponding coloured docks scat­tered around the bay. It gets trickier though, boats quickly de-car­go and need to be guided back out to sea. Other boats are con­tinuously coming in, so the game quickly … [Read more...]
