Impossible Road is a very minimal arcade game with really tough gameplay, similar to games like Super Hexagon, Flappy Bird and Pivvot, that are easy to play but ridiculously hard to master. The game was released on iOS last year and received a positive response from gamers.

‘Surgeon Simulator’ for iPad game review

by 5 comments

Surgeon Simulator for iPad is a port of the popular game that was released on Steam last year. Although the game claims to be a simulator, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. The game had you performing hilarious operations on an unsuspecting patient in ways that would send an actual surgeon or patient reeling in horror.

Now the same game has been ported over completely to the iPad, which is the only platform right now other than the desktop PC to have the game. We picked up our scalpel and decided to get our hands dirty before Bob’s anesthesia wore off. Read more »

Smash Hits is the latest game from the folks who brought us Sprinkle, Sprinkle Junior and Sprinkle Islands. If those games tell us anything, it’s that Mediocre knows how to emulate physics in games.

In Smash Hits you throw balls at glass structures, which earns you points and keeps you moving forward. The game makes extensive use of physics for the movement of the balls and the glass and it all looks very nice. If that sounds interesting to you then you should read on for the full review.

Cut the Rope started a trend of several casual games where the objective is to collect three items scattered throughout the level while solving puzzles or dodging obstacles.

The original Tomb Raider game was a milestone in the world of gaming. You could say it singlehandedly created the third person action, adventure genre and made it what it is today.
