The Secret Of Grisly Manor For iPhone

The Secret Of GrislyManor images

Less a point-and-click title, more just a point Trends of all natures are generally cyclical — be it dress­es, suits, silly hair or, indeed, videogames. For this rea­son, the return to simple-by-necessity interfaces of­fered by Apple's devices may well see the point-and-click undergo a renaissance. Not here mind you; The Secret Of Grisly Manor's challenge proving relatively simplistic, and not altogether bound up in logic. Help functions … [Read more...]

Grand Theft Auto For iPhone


Big trouble in little Chinatown It's fair to say that Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars has endured a rather painful transition from Nintendo's DS to Apple's iPhone, and has been forced to sacrifice some key elements along the way. However, despite the changes, it's without a shadow of a doubt one of the most well-made and essential purchases currently available on the App Store. The most obvious shortcoming is the controls; the on-screen D-pad … [Read more...]

Mirror’s Edge For iPhone

Sometimes you've just got to have 2009 saw many of us lose hours to two running games. The first was the original Mirror's Edge, in which you guided free-runner Faith as she bounded across beautiful cityscapes on the PS3 and XBox 360. The second was Canabalt, a wonderfully simple platformer that only required you to keep running and jumping for as long as you could physically keep up the pace. In bringing Mirror's Edge to the iPad, EA takes … [Read more...]

Iron Man 2 For iPhone


This one should have stayed in the cinemas Tony Stark's robotic alter-ego may be sporting a shiny new paint job in his last big-budget Hollywood outing, but this iPhone adaptation feels rusty and tired, with little in the way of original content or innovation. Above-average presentation fails to hide the woeful shortcomings of the gameplay, which is incredibly basic and not at all challenging. The controls range from workmanlike to frustrating, … [Read more...]

So You Like BRUSHES …And Want New Ways To Express Yourself Visually?


Since its release, Brushes has pretty much owned the "art on iPad" niche. Does it deserve to be labeled best? Maybe. It comes packing 19 brushes, and lets you paint over six layers, one after another, without significant slowdown. You can export your pictures in a variety of different formats and ways, including uploading straight to Flickr. But now Matter how good Brushes is, by now it's old hat. Besides, its far from the only option on iOS, and … [Read more...]

So You Like ANGRY BIRDS…And Other Addicting Flick-ity Gravity Games?


Love it or hate it, Angry Birds has changed everything. Before it, there were only iOS success stories. Then it broke onto the scene like a boomerang bird and absolutely changed what iOS gaming looked like and set a new bar for what could be qualified as "success" at all. The cartoony bird game has had a stranglehold on Apple's top ten paid list for so long now, it's hard to imagine there are still people who haven't played it. But by now, it's … [Read more...]

Bouncing Games!

If today's App Store is all about Angry Birds, yesterday's was all about Doodle Jump. A highly polished, but crummy looking, bouncing game in which users tilted their devices to help a bug jump on platforms and slowly edge his way up to incredible heights. As Doodle Jump has gotten older, the creator has never milked his "franchise" for the millions Angry Bird has—instead, he's added new themes, new levels, new characters—and left the price … [Read more...]

Take A Few Notes…. But Do It With Apps With Handwriting Capabilities The Notes app that's included on every iOS device has a pretty serious feature set. It can sync to your email addresses so you can access them in every device. It can make it so you never forget another grocery list at home. It can make you feel like a child, typing with the cartoony Marker Felt font. But no matter how much people loved what it could do, many were concerns … [Read more...]

ScoreCenter XL for iPad

ESPN…. Pushing Its Way To An iPad Near You One of the best things about this app is how well ESPN has taken the feel of its broadcasts and website, and managed to translate it directly to an iPad app in such a way that it just feels natural. The first things you will notice, is a bar at the bottom of the screen that is constantly running headline news for all kinds of sports, just like on TV. As far as the interface of this app goes, you … [Read more...]
