Endless runners, especially the 3D variety, have been popular and overtaking the Android, and iOS, market since the release of Temple Run. Unlike when Super Mario Bros hit, the me-toos and copycat endless running games are not innovating like the side scrolling action platforming genre did over the years. With that being said, another 3D […]

Advertising and gaming have been working together since the early days- remember Chase the Chuckwagon on the Atari 2600? Yo Noid! on the Nintendo Entertainment system or Cool Spot on Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis are a couple more examples. This is nothing new. Now, Activision are getting into the cross promotion fun with Pitfall […]
3D puzzle titles are nothing new, we have had them for years, but as with this style of game, each has a unique pull. Robo & Bobo has cute graphics, challenges players to think like programmers and you know you want to reunite the robot with his teddy bear.
It is an understatement to say that Angry Birds is a hit but there is one area that those little feathery creatures have not traversed 3D. While there are a few 3D physics based destruction games, they have mostly been rather basic in the graphics department.
Growing up, playing the Atari 2600 was a thing of joy, other than it we had to go outside if we wanted to play any type of “game”. While I would wait for my father to get home from working at a sheet metal shop, I would pass the time after finishing homework by playing […]
Tower defense titles are not exactly the first genre that I will jump at when I hear it mentioned in discussions but with Tabletop Defense, it looks like someone has finally created one that I am interested in. Maybe it is the 3D graphics, maybe it is the art style, not sure but Tabletop Defense […]
Growing up from the 8-bit era through to today has given me a bit of insight to the background of fighting games and their roots and progression throughout history. Up till about the 32-bit era, fighting games were 2D, no matter if it was one plane (Street Fighter II) or levels (Final Fight), they were […]
Anyone that remembers the old days of gaming when we had overhead scrolling shooters that were cool, interesting and challenging without being obnoxious with the bullet count will be right at home with Wingbreaker on iOS by Riggerman Games. Blasting enemies, collecting power-ups and more abound in this throwback to a simpler, many would say […]
This code is a first come, first serve code with EXTREMELY limited redemptions so get it while you can. Running Fred was recently reviewed here on Gaming on Batteries and scored quite well. As you may know, Running Fred is a freemium title, Dedalord has given us a code for one of the more popular […]
New Android devices get announced, seemingly, every day or two and today is no exception as we are covering the Wikipad- sure it is not out but we are just so interested in this thing that it needs to be covered more. What is so special about this new tablet now, besides the detachable controller? […]
Running games are seemingly the genre of choice for mobile gaming, much like 2D platforming was the mascot genre for the 8 and 16-BIt eras. 3D ones are more interesting to me than the 2D running games and that brings us to Running Fred. Fred, not the Youtube dude, has been seen previously in a […]
One thing this cell phone gaming phenomenon has done is that it has taken control of most games out of the hands of the gamer that is “playing” them. This is a design choice that gets more annoying depending on the genre of game that you are playing- running games are the worst offenders for […]
