Swing Copters is not the next Flappy Bird

So-difficult-it’s-practically-impossible has become its own game genre, thanks to mobile gamers. They elevated these ridiculously difficult titles, which provide five minutes of play at best for even the most skilled, to a commercially viable property. Flappy Bird is heralded is the “king” of this cluster, but I feel Swing Copters will be the impossible games’ more »

The Sims 4: Missing a lot of features

I recently discovered a list of 89 things that will be missing from The Sims 4. It’s insane that the game will be missing so many of the features that made its predecessors great, and the scope of the things that are being left out is seemingly random. One case that I can make for more »

TinierMe returns as CocoPPa Play

I admit it – I’m a sucker for dress-up games. Which is why back when TinierMe, a dress-up social networking site with mini-games was around, I jumped on board. Free dress-up time with adorable avatars? Sold! Then it closed for monetary reasons, and I went on to satiate my immature gaming needs with various other more »

Marvel’s webslinger goes endless running in Spider-Man Unlimited

The endless runner trend is one of mobile gaming’s most popular. Spider-Man, one of Marvel’s most beloved characters, is always on the move.

Gameloft, the developer behind Modern Combat 5 and Ice Age Adventures, is bringing the wallcrawler to mobile devices more »

Where’s the multiplatform Peggle 2?

I’m a self-proclaimed Peggle addict. I savored that game, enjoying it immediately after its 2007 launch on the PC, but then also following it to the PS3 and even putting it on my Nexus 7. Which, naturally, left me feeling quite betrayed when EA made the ridiculous decision to take what was originally a PC-exclusive more »
