Sims Medieval iPhone Icon

I will start out by saying this is the first Sims game i have ever played. The Sims never appealed to my gaming taste.

Much like its modern counterparts, The Sims Medieval is about trying to push your little virtual person up the…

Dragon Fantasy: 8-bit medieval mayhem on your iPhone

I came across this game trailer while browsing the internet. I was instantly hooked! The excellent 8-bit graphics and sound sent me back to the days of yore. It’s like that old commercial where the guy eating peanut butter runs into the guy eating chocolate, only this is a guy playing The Legend of Zelda…

iPhone App ‘Siege Hero’ goes first-person medieval on Angry Birds

Friends, let’s not beat around the bush. Siege Hero is pretty much Angry Birds from a first person perspective.

The best games are the ones that never end. Infinity Blade, the new highest-grossing app on the App Store, doesn’t just have a cool name, it follows through very literally.
