Brandnew Boy review for iPhone and iPad

Brandnew Boy launched on iOS not too long ago, offering up a unique mix of 3D hand-to-hand combat, colorful anime graphics, and a soundtrack that sounds like it's straight out of Kill Bill. The iPhone and iPad game had a big content update last week, went on sale, and now they're hosting a giveaway in our forums for ten $10 iTunes Gift Cards and 10 promo codes for Brandnew Boy.

Unstoppable Fist review for iPhone

Unstoppable Fist by Ragtag Studio delivered a ridiculous, over-the-top haymaker to the App Store today. This button-mashing endless defense game puts you in the well-worn loafers of a hero named Fist who has come to Earth to deliver flawless roundhouse kicks and precise jabs to eclipse-crazed piranhas, armadillos, bats, chickens, various aquatic life, and any other rabid creature that happens to enter his personal space. Despite his extra-terrestrial origins, Fist is deeply patriotic and drapes himself in the stars and stripes between battles. Whether or not he is related to Chuck Norris is uncertain, but not out of the question.

App Store adds Game Collections spotlight for iPhone and iPad

Every once in awhile the App Store would showcase collections of games around themes, like zombies or racing, but it would be hard to find those featured lists once the game section's page was updated. To fix that, Apple has made a permanent Game Collections section where all of the different lists are found in one place.

Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers for iPad review

The venerable fantasy card game, Magic: The Gathering, has just made its debut on mobile by way of an iPad app titled Duels of the Planswalkers. The closest we've had to a Magic game on iOS so far has been Shadow Era, which admittedly did a decent job, but it's awesome to see the real deal available.

Game of the week: Plague Inc.

Out of all the games I looked at this week, I definitely poured the most time into Plague Inc. This single-player strategy title puts you as the guiding force behind a globe-spanning disease, including its means of transmission, its symptoms, and its spread from region to region.

Game Center for OSX to offer cross-platform gaming with iOS

One little gem for gamers at WWDC today is a new Game Center for OSX that will allow players to play with friends on iOS when games are available on both platforms. Combined with pixel-for-pixel mirroring that was also announced for the new version of Mountain Lion, this is going to be pretty sweet. The WWDC demo showed CSR Racing playing on an iPad against a MacBook.
