Are you looking for a game that will challenge you? No? How about a game that will frustrate you? Still not interested?

Two Dots, the sequel to last year's popular Dots game, has climbed to the top of the iOS App Store charts -- and for good reason.

5 fantastic iOS games you aren't playing, but should be

Ever since Apple removed the ability to browse apps by how recently they were added to the App Store, it seems as though the only way to discover great content is by browsing through Apple's own recommendations pages. Sure, you can search for whatever app you want by name, but it's harder than...

Rescue a civilization of adorable citizens in the dreamy world of Kiwanuka

The best word I can find to describe Kiwanuka is "abstract." This physics-based puzzle game is more demanding than many in the genre thanks to the all-or-nothing puzzle solutions and total abandonment of a hint system that has become commonplace in the App Store. From the cutesy characters to the...

I've fed this Human-Faced Fish 17 frogs and he's still hungry

As you might imagine, we get a lot of emails about new apps. We do our best to wade through them all to find the gems you should actually care about. Forbidden Breeding Kit - Human Face Fish isn't one of them. I'm writing about it simply because it might be the most absurd, weird, insane app I've...
