iPatch: Puzzle Pirates is on iPad

Tweet I’ll keep this brief: Puzzle Pirates from Three Rings and SEGA may well be my favorite MMO of all time. I know I am prone to hyperbole in my writing; this is not one of those moments. I’ve had a membership for ten years. Puzzle Pirates is the brilliantly perfect blend of arcade-puzzle gameplay, co-op MMO [...]

Just when you thought both zombie titles and train games had nothing to do with each other, TriplePoint client Dragonhead Games is here to discuss whether or not organs and viscera make good [...]

I Got 99Games but Nightclub Mayhem is Actually One

Tweet 99Games has, according to their website, 11games. We like to think they’re getting there, though, and they’re doing pretty well by the games they’ve got so far, such as Nightclub Mayhem, which just got bumped up to VIP status with its 2.0 update. There’s new mini-games, new levels, and the game is now available for [...]

Folks are Very Grabby with Grabbity

Tweet When a game is free, it’s tough to keep people away from it. Not that you’d want to keep people away from it, of course; I imagine that’s why you make it free in the first place. Nonetheless, there’s a game that folks decide to grab, and then there’s games people get especially grabby about, [...]

Well, now MechWarrior: Tactical Command is here, and we’re completely unprepared for gigantic war machines to blast the hell out of our cities. Thanks again, guys. At [...]

iPad MechWarrior ComingSoon

Tweet Here is a collection of oddly capitalized word compounds that should delight you: BattleTech’s MechWarrior is an iPad game now. Or, it will be soon, thanks to TriplePoint (again with the compounds) client Personae Studios, the folks behind the design and development of this latest giant-robot-exploding title. The new game is called MechWarrior: Tactical Command, [...]

Free Game of the Day, 9/6/12: Grab Grabbity on iOS Today

Tweet Ask any child what a rabbit does, and they’ll no doubt mention two things: long ears and jumping. Despite not speaking with any children lately, I can take both of those facts for granted. Bunnies are simple little things, after all. But Grabbity, a new free-to-play platformer from TriplePoint clients Efecto Studios and Televisa Home Entertainment, [...]

Free Game of the Day, 9/4/12 — Dishonored: Rat Assassin

Tweet Dishonored: Rat Assassin is not an artistically interesting game. It barely innovates, and it looks like a pile of old beef stew. It’s App Store shovelware at its finest. That makes it even harder for me to admit that I like it. Quite a bit, in fact. Before I get into the “why” behind Rat Assassin, [...]

Square Enix Wants to Keep Raking in Cash with Final Fantasy Dimensions

Tweet Square Enix has an interesting presence on the iOS App Store and Google Play. Their bread and butter, as a simple search will tell you, is re-releasing their nearly infinite catalog of old-school role-playing games like Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger. In fairness, they’ve also got a handful of original RPGs like Chaos Rings and a [...]

Free Game of the Day, 8/21/12 — The Simpsons: Tapped Out Returns with New Tricks, Old Gameplay

Tweet The Simpsons: Tapped Out opens in the right way — with The Simpsons. That is to say, the first thing you’ll see after booting up the game is a cartoon cut-scene that could be straight from the desk of Matt Groening. It’s almost like the game knows its only chance of winning over the fickle (but [...]

Capcom Resuscitates Mega Man… for a Social Game on iOS?

Tweet The Blue Bomber is back, but not in the way that most fans wanted. Mega Man Xover, which developer Capcom just announced, isn’t a continuation or re-imagining of the series’ classic 2D roots. Nor is it a revival of the recently cancelled 3DS exclusive, Mega Man Legends 3. Instead, it’s a social RPG on iOS. [...]

SketchParty TV Brings Dual-Screen Gaming to Apple Fanatics — Does it Rain on Wii U’s Parade?

Tweet For the last decade or so, a quiet but powerful trend has been changing the way we play games. Like so many developments in this industry, nobody really asked for dual-screen gameplay at first — it snuck up on us, one game at a time, picking up traction with fans as more and more companies [...]
