It is no secret that Windows Phone 8 has a smaller app market than either iOS or Android but it is apparently a secret just what hits are available. That is why we are doing this special report for new Windows Phone 8 owners that are looking for games for their new pocket power house [...]

When Microsoft came out with Windows Phone 7, then 8, they changed the whole layout of the OS (much like they did with the desktop version of 8) and as someone that came from using Windows Mobile 2002, then 2003 and then 6.5, I can honestly say it is about time they got it right.
Gameloft is catching quite a bit of flack over the in app purchases situation but honestly, it is not going anywhere anytime soon and it does allow pretty cool games like this to be accessible for more players that are either broke or are simply cheap. What gamers get with Dungeon Hunter 4 is a [...]
The recent coverage of an upcoming indie role playing game, Temple of the Sun and Moon (with interview), got me to thinking that it would be cool to offer up some other role playing games that are on sale right now for iOS (working on something for Android but large scale sales there are hard [...]
First person role playing games like Temple of the Sun and Moon are right up my alley for fun. That is why I was excited when I was contacted by Steve Miller about his title and even more excited about the fact that it was coming to a platform that I enjoy gaming on, Android [...]
We don’t usually cover Kickstarter campaigns here at Gaming on Batteries so you know, when we do, there is something pretty special about the game in question. That is the case with Temple of the Sun and Moon by Bad Ass Games and this interview with Steve Miller, the man behind the very interesting title [...]
Kemco, a long running game publisher from back in the early days of gaming, is having a sale on two of their extremely popular Role Playing Games on iTunes. RPG Adelphia 1 and 2 are on sale for $0.99 each for a limited time.
Square Enix has dropped the price on their Final Fantasy titles on iOS for a limited time. Grab them at their discounted prices while you can- some are steeper discounts than others but in general, gamers will save a lot of money during this sale.
Unreal Engine in general was an engine, that when first announced, I was for sure was not going to go anywhere. Rumored high licensing costs, unique approach to game development and being the new kid on the block (Epic was still pretty new at this point) all added up to a planned failure as far [...]
Ultima, the game series that started the legacy of Sir Richard Garriott in gaming on older computers such as the Apple IIe and eventually Commodore and IBM computers (and even a few consoles) is now coming to the iOS platform soon. Playing more like the Ultima Online games rather than the original single player games, the new [...]
Let me preface this review by saying, Dungelot is THE Roguelike game for people that hate Roguelike games. There, I said it, now that that little fact is out of the way, I can get on with explaining why that is. Forget just about everything you hate about Rogue and the genre in general because [...]
Writing this review is tougher than expected, it was just so hard to put down Knights of Pen and Paper long enough to write something worth reading. That game is that good, that is coming from someone that is not a Role Playing Game (RPG) fanatic. Behold Studios have created quite a unique little title [...]
To stand out in the world of gaming is a tough proposition for many companies, the competition is stiff and only getting harder to differentiate from. Mixing genres is an option many companies go for to make their game stand out to players, the mixture has to be just right or the result is a [...]
Dungeons and Dragons has been around since before gaming hit it big in the early 1980′s and ever since then, companies have been after that license and, with various levels of success, been able to bring a reasonable facsimile of the game to fans. The problem with the previous attempts at a D&D game is [...]
Taking two different genres and mixing them together has been around for a long time, we have seen RPG’s mixed with Bejeweled, action titles and now we have another entry in the short list of side scrolling shooter RPG’s available. Sector Strike brings 2.5D game play to Android gamers along with a fair bit of [...]
