Antivirus Has Rough Edges, but Potential

Antivirus - Computer viruses are the nightmare of any computer user. Clearly worse than aliens or enemy combatants. So why are there so many games where you battle the latter instead of the real enemy you face on a daily basis?

Sway's Finger Controls Make For Swinging Good Time

Illusion Labs, the same group behind the excellent Labyrinth and the debatable Touchgrind, is at it again. Their newest game to hit the App Store is Sway, which succeeds in creating a gaming experience that is uniquely tailored to the iPhone/iPod touch.

Buy Ultimate Thumb Fighter on the App Store

Ultimate Thumb Fighter is a Bloody Battle for Domination

Ultimate Thumb Fighter iPhone app by SWN Software falls short of the ultimate thumbs up. I really wanted to love this game. I play thumb wars with my favorite 12 year old quite often. When this app popped up on my radar, I was ready for action.

Orion's Belt Delivers Space Drama In Spades

Orion's Belt - Most games on the iPhone put a premium on delivering quick-hitting 5- to 10-minute engagements rather than the longevity of a traditional, console-style game. Considering that most iPhone gaming is typically done in short bursts, that approach it is completely understandable.

i Sniper: First Person Shooter Misses The Mark

While I Sniper can be fun at times it is way too rough and unpolished to be recommended. The controls are a bit awkward, the graphics are not great, and the storyline narrative needs a grammar check. The premise of I Sniper is that you are, of course, a sniper who must take out some terrorist enemies.

Buy Payback on the App Store

Sometimes Payback Can Be a Great Thing

Sandbox gaming has officially come to the iPhone. Payback, developed by Apex Designs, is a shameless clone of the experience found in the GTA (Grand Theft Auto) franchise.

Buy Aeterius: Contact Wars on the App Store

Buy AirFight on the App Store

Airfight Puts You In The Cockpit of a Flight Simulator

Airfight is a good attempt at delivering a dogfight sim for the iPhone/iPod Touch. Developing an app with the complexities involved is no minor feat, and most of the game play turns out quite well. But there is some room to grow and other features that would make this even more compelling.
