[REVIEW] MyNBA2K14: MY TEAM MOBILE

MyNBA2K14 is a companion app to the latest console basketball game by 2K Sports, but alongside it comes a free to play NBA Collectible Card Game (CCG) Called My Team Mobile. Having played a few free CCGs before I was sceptical because they normally end up using a number of cynical tricks to draw you […]

[PREVIEW] Football Manager 2014

We all want to be something we’re not. When it comes to football fans, I’d say over 90% of them would like to put themselves in the ‘hot-seat’ of their chosen club for a day, and I think this is the reason why Football Manager is so widely loved and played in the footballing community. It […]

[REVIEW] POCKET TRAINS

Game design is something that is invisible when it is done well; a silent guiding hand that eases your way through a game without you ever realising the influence it is having. It’s the tutorial that teaches you into the controls, slowly adding layers of gameplay as you learn the ropes, or the automation that […]

[NEWS] Apple Keynote: New iPhone 5’s

WRITTEN BY TOM CLARKE (@CLARKEY101) Tim Cook took to the stage today at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, CA, to unveil Apple’s next big product launch. And, as rumours suggested, it wasn’t just one big product that Cook was to tease the audience with. First, though, was Apple’s traditional re-cap to kick off proceedings. Cook began […]

[REVIEW] SUPER STICKMAN GOLF 2

Mobile gaming is in a strange place right now; it’s very much the best of times and the worst of times. On the bad side you have an App Store choc full of ’freemium’ games, often just reskins with different themes, which whilst being ostensibly free are actually largely business models with graphics. Early progression […]

[REVIEW] FOOTBALL CHAIRMAN LITE

It’s September 2047 and I have a dilemma building. It’s Spartak’s first season in The Championship but already we’re hovering just above the relegation zone, and I’m not sure the manager is the right man to keep us up. We’re in a patchy run of form but the fans still love him, so though I […]

[REVIEW] DUNGELOT

There’s a game I used to play as a kid called Rogue that as far as I knew was nothing significant. It was a simple ASCII dungeon crawler which had a different layout every time you played, a mysterious range of potions which would as likely kill you as cure you, and enemies represented by […]

[REVIEW] SCURVY SCALLYWAGS

I know what you’re thinking. What the app store really needs is another Match 3 game, right? Well ok, maybe not, but what it might need is this particular Match 3 game. Match 3 games have been around for a while, most famously Bejewelled becoming popular in the early 2000s, but really found their natural […]

Apple’s annual ‘Worldwide Developer’s Conference’ (WWDC) keynote took place today, Monday 10th June, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

[NEWS] This Week: Xbox 720 Always On Gets worse, Star Wars 1313 isn’t happening, iPhone 5S and more!

Xbox 720 Always On The next xbox situation goes from bad to worse with members of the Microsoft team basically telling customers to ‘#dealwithit’. It seems the end is nigh for the xbox console if you do have to always be online with the next console. Many, including myself, are weary about how this will […]
