Pride and Prejudice and Zombies for iPhone: Fun, but faulty

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a franchise in possession of a large fanbase must be in want of a video game adaptation.

I got to play Freeverse's iPhone video game adaptation of the popular book Pride, Prejudice, and Zombies at GDC. I'm glad to say that it's now out on the App Store for your downloading pleasure.

Freeverse working on a Pride and Prejudice and Zombies game for iPhone

I haven't gotten a chance to read the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies book, in which Seth Grahame-Smith takes the old Jane Austen novel and adds a little undead action to it, but apparently the brand is doing very well.

Hanged for iPhone makes macabre work of child's play

Some iPhone apps are useful. Others are fun. And others, like Freeverse's new Hanged [iTunes link] are seriously, seriously weird. Hanged transforms the traditional game of Hangman into an old-timey melodrama, complete with bad music, impassioned acting, and, sadly, little else. There's plenty...
