Zen Pinball Announces Iron and Steel Tables

No, it’s not the Shaq superhero table.  It’s Wild West Rampage and Castlestorm tables.  The double table pack will be available this coming week for all platforms except Wii U.  Here are the descriptions from Zen: YEEEEHAAAW! The Wild West Rampage table stars Cindy, a bold bounty hunter who arrives in the western town of …

Instant Update: Super Hexagon

I still suck at this game.  I just don’t see the path fast enough and reactions can’t compensate any more.  At least I only waste a few seconds per try.  I think I’ll go back to Threes.

Game of the Week: Infectonator (iOS, Android, Flash)

I’m sure I first played Infectonator in its flash form.  The iOS and Android version appeared to be based more on Infectonator 2.  The concept is simple.  You are a mad scientist trying to take over the world with zombies.  You drop your infectonator bomb or bombs on the city of your choice then see …

Game of the Week: Game Dev Story

I’ve probably bought too many Kairosoft titles.  Game Dev Story is the reason why.  At least, that’s where it started.  Conceptually, it’s pretty brilliant.  They made a game about making games.  Throw in a lot of game references and a retro art style.  It’s like catnip for gamers.  I suppose some PC gamers might be …

Game of the Week 10,000,000

10,000,000 or ten million is a combination endless runner, match three puzzle and roguelike RPG.  It’s odd and a bit brilliant. It’s available for iOS, Android and Steam.  It’s graphics are reminiscent of an early roguelike.  You could either call that inspired or ugly.  I wouldn’t argue with either. The premise is very simple.  You …

Game of the Week: Super Hexagon

Super Hexagon is a strange game.  You die.  You die over and over again.  You actually fall into a rhythm of dying.  It’s not about succeeding.  It’s about surviving as long as you can.  The only controls are your left and right buttons.  Think of it like Pacman only you’re chased by the maze itself …

Game of the Week: Nimble Quest

Nimble Quest

If you’re one of those people asking why no one ever crossed the old cellphone game snake with an 8 bit RPG, what am I saying?  People don’t ask those questions.  It’s really only the kind of thing that comes up in a brainstorming session.  However, in the case of Nimble Quest, it turns out …

Game of the Week: Doodle Jump

Doodle Jump is a game so simple it could be easy to overlook.  Still, sometimes the simplest ideas are the best.  I suppose you could classify it as an endless runner only vertical.  Your only job (usually) is to get as high as you can.  Of course, that’s like saying that a pinball table is …

Game of the Week: Star Wars Pinball

I’m trying to give a little variety in the game of the week. I’m also trying to reflect what I play. I wish I had time for more grand strategy gaming, turn based tactical or even some strategy RPG’s. I have limited time and even more limited gaming time. So I try to pack as …

Game of the Week Puzzle Saga

I want to do more regular updates. So I’m going to try to do a game of the week. Admittedly, most of these will be apps since that’s the bulk of my game time these days.   I’ll try to mix in some classics, indies, and big budget games as well.  I’ll probably shoot for Fridays, …
