Game Corner: Robotek

Every now and then, I happen to stumble upon a game that it so good it makes me wonder why it took so long to discover it. I’ll start playing, everything looks great, the game feels fluid, and then it starts to set in, “oh, this is why more people aren’t talking about it.” Robotek from Hexage falls into that category. For the most part the game is… Read more

Game Corner: Stupid Zombies

Over this weekend, during a five hour trip to Chicago, I had a lot of time to burn. I decided I wanted to try a new game, and I vaguely remembered trying a game on a Xoom that had to do with shooting zombies. Unfortunately, all I could remember was a cartoonisn icon featuring a zombie in crosshairs, and name with zombie in it. I began my search, came… Read more

Game Corner: Dillo Hills

Finding games that really push the Nexus S to the limit of its processing power are surprisingly hard to come by. Out of all the graphic-heavy HD games I’ve tried so far, only one has been able to really stress the device: Dillo Hills.

So how does Fruit Ninja stack up to other made for Android games? What makes Fruit Ninja… Read more

Game Corner: Hextacy

Whenever I’m looking to play a game on my Nexus One, it’s usually because I have a couple of minutes to spare. In the past, that meant fumbling around a terrible UI just to try and entertain myself with complete garbage. Fortunately, that’s no longer the case. Mobile gaming is still growing in big ways, and small yet incredibly good looking and… Read more

Game Corner: Bejeweled 2

The Bejeweled series of games is one of those series that you can’t get away from. Different versions of the game have made their way onto the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, Wii, OSX, Windows, iOS, WP7, and just ten days ago, Android. Bejeweled 2 in particular has been masterfully ported between platforms before an Android version was ever… Read more
