Blade Warrior For iPad | Strategy/RPG Games

Blade Warrior Images

There are plenty of apps that boast incredible presentation values, but not much underneath. Blade Warrior straddles this idea almost perfectly.

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...]

Iron Man 2 For iPhone

Iron-Man-2-icon

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.

The controls range from workmanlike to frustrating, … [Read more...]
