Grand Theft Auto: Vice City making its way to the App Store soon

If you spent any of early/late teenage years glued to a TV screen playing PS2, you’ll know of Grand Theft Auto. It’s an incredibly addictive game. My first taste was with the 2D Grand Theft Auto II, then I moved on to III and was hooked. I have to be honest, I spent far too much of my time with the blood and gore cheat on and sniping old people from an…

Angry Birds Star Wars’ latest trailer – Princess Leia and Storm Troopig

I cannot wait until Angry Birds Star Wars is released, and until it is, I’m going to ensure we publish every new trailer and teaser. It’s the best thing to happen to mobile gaming since Crazy Taxi and Carmageddon were launched on our favorite devices. So, without further ado, here’s the latest featuring a Princess Leia scene (sadly not in THAT…

Is the future of gaming really mobile? [Editorial]

The iMpulse physical game pad for iPhone and iPad is quite remarkable. Small enough to fit on a keychain, the iMpulse provides the iGamer with all his controlling needs. It’s wireless, so thanks to the joys of Bluetooth, there are no wires present that might hamper your gaming experience. More to the point, there’s no chance that you might yank your…

Angry Birds Star Wars coming on November 8th – I can’t wait!

If – like me  - you’re a bit of a Star Wars nerd. i.e. You know Han shot first, you realize that Darth Vader is the coolest villain of all time and that anything apart from the original trilogy should be discounted as being “real Star Wars” (including the “digitally remastered” versions) then you’re going to love this. Rovio has officially announced…

FIFA 13 by EA Sports: Review [VID]

Cam takes the new FIFA app for a spin on his iPad. The updated graphics and gameplay options are a much needed improvement on the previous version. Is it worth the price tag? You decide. iTunes link: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/fifa-13-by-ea-sports/id547409501?mt=8 Cam on twitter: http://twitter.com/TiP_Cam TiP on Facebook:…

7 must-have apps for iPhone 5

Thanks to Apple finally caving and changing away from the same 3.5″ display we’ve used for years, we now have 4-inches loaded with 727,000 pixels to play with. That gives app makers the opportunity to take advantage. And, although it will undoubtedly take time for developers to get all their apps updated, there are some that have already made their way…

App Hunter: Goal Defense for iPad/iPhone [VID]

The second video in the App Hunter series, where Cam trawls through the App Store to find great games and apps that you never quite make it to the “New and Noteworthy” section or to the top of the sales list. Most likely because they’re not made by big blockbuster software designers. This week is “Goal Defense”, a quirky, tongue-in-cheek take on the…

Miss the old Nintendo games? Now you can play them in your iOS browser

Classic Nintendo games never seem to go away. Whether it be iOS, Android, OS X or Windows, there is an emulator for nearly every platform. For most platforms, it is as simple as installing an application that will emulate or run the NES “ROMs.” For iOS however, apps like that are not allowed to exist in the walled garden that is the App Store, therefore…

iOS the most popular gaming platform ever?

Three or four years ago if anyone had said that not long in to the future, my chosen mobile platform would be considered as the most popular gaming platform of all time, I’d never have believed them. Games on the iPhone and iPad have exploded since 2008, especially after Apple’s special handshake with EA Games. Since the App Store opened, games titles have…
