Do so, and the game's 50 vehicles and 12 tracks will become available across the varying new modes. Initially this will … [Read more...]

Trivial Pursuit For iPad | Board/Family/Kids Games

Trivial Pursuit Images

After being rather disappointed with EA's take on Monopoly, we're delighted to report that its take on Trivial Pursuit is far more suited to the iOS. Wi-Fi play is included for up to four players and there's a wealth of questions to work through, but what really impresses us is the entertaining single-player mode EA has included. Presentation is lacklustre, but this is a far better translation than we were ever expecting and as such still worth a … [Read more...]

The aim of each stage is to hurl the titular rodent around the level, touch-sliding to pull him back to the extent of his elas­ticated tail, and then throwing him between a series of pegs, which if … [Read more...]

Polar Bear Racing For iPad | Racing Games

As you'll guess from the title, this racer doesn't involved pouty babes and petrol-sucking machines. Instead, it's an ecological message wrapped up in an arcade game. Control the polar bear as it escapes. One finger touches the screen to accelerate, the other traces the position of the bear. Sausage fingers will find this hard, but it works for kids — and that's where the graphics are aimed as well. … [Read more...]

Ghosts’n Goblins Gold Knights For iPad | Action games

GHOSTS'N GOBLINS GOLD KNIGHTS images

Capcom's Ghosts 'n Goblins series is a certified retro classic, with a well-deserved reputation for being as tough as old boots despite the doggy life you get each time your hero gets hit and loses his armour. Given its proclivity for intense difficulty and the need for lightning-fast reactions, bringing this esteemed series to the iPhone — a platform which lacks traditional physical controls ­doesn't seem like the greatest idea ever. … [Read more...]
