Pick your battles wisely in Weapons Throwing RPG

Weapons Throwing RPG is a retro style RPG. The graphics and music have an anime design that is adorable and fun. The music sounds similar to that of other games from the 90s 16-bit era. It is an easy game to figure out and pretty simple to play. Although it looks like something that could have b...

LvLn game is a fresh take on a basic concept with retro flair

Leveling up is the core of the action RPG LvLn. Leveling up may seem like a standard trope in many games but LvLn brings more understanding of its importance. It's similar to Slayin, which we reviewed here, as it is a hack-and-slash retro game with simple controls and a focus on leveling up. Th...

Daily iPhone App: Scurvy Scallywags is great fun for landlubbers or first mates

Ron Gilbert is the great game designer mind behind popular series like Monkey Island, Maniac Mansion, and the recent Deathspank games.

Aspyr brings the Bioware classic Knights of the Old Republic to iPad

When I spoke with them at Macworld | iWorld earlier this year, Aspyr Media (a company that has brought a lot of games to the Mac platform) promised some interesting "catalog Mac experiences" would be released on iOS, and they've outdone themselves with the first title. Bioware's classic Knight...

Daily iPhone App: Slayin is an adorable microRPG

Since the App Store opened its virtual doors, we've seen a lot of "micro" versions of larger genres, including platformers and RPGs. The iPhone lends itself to smaller, quicker experiences, and so a lot of developers have boiled down some very large game styles into much smaller forms. Slayin i...

Daily iPhone App: bit Dungeon is a retro RPG done well

bit Dungeon arrived on the App Store a little while ago, and if you missed it then, you'd do well to try it out now. Quite a few games have used the old 8-bit, top-down RPGs as a rubric, but bit Dungeon is probably the best example I've seen of all of them. You simply go from room to room, Lege...

Daily iPhone App: QuestLord is a retro RPG trip back in time

A lot of apps these days show that developers are always thinking about what they can do in a new way: How can we change up controls for a touchscreen device, or use the power of the iPhone to create a new experience? QuestLord, however, is very decidedly old school. It's an RPG from the first-...

Hands on with NimbleBit's next title, Nimble Quest

I am a huge fan, as you may already know, of the two brothers behind NimbleBit and all of their work, from the earlier titles like Scoops and DizzyPad to the much larger freemium hits they've had like Tiny Tower and Pocket Planes. The last time I talked to either of the Marsh brothers in person...

Daily iPhone App: Poker Knight combines poker hands with an RPG

Poker Knight is a game that I was really excited to see coming to the App Store. I'm a big fan of poker, and I'm a big fan of role-playing games, so when that trailer arrived, I was right away looking forward to seeing what this one was like. Unfortunately, it didn't quite live up to my expec...

Daily iPhone App: Penny Arcade's On The Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3

I've become a big fan of Zeboyd Games recently -- their last title, Cthulu Saves the World, is a really well-designed (and funny!) love letter to the Japanese RPGs of yesteryear. Penny Arcade is a very popular video game and pop culture webcomic that's released three games now, and Zeboyd was h...

We've known since the beginning that the enormously popular toy/video game combo of Activision's Skylanders would come to Apple's iOS platform at some point, and now here comes the official announcement that Skylanders fans are getting not one but two different iOS games to play. Skylanders Bat...
