REVIEWS Screencheat Review
The first FPS in history where looking at your friends’ screens isn’t cheating; it’s a requirement.

Natural Doctrine Review
This actually might be "your dad's" Japanese TRPG, and for those with a hankering for it, that can be a very good thing.

I Don't Want to, but I Have To...

Well, Gamergate has spilled over into the mainstream media and the coverage appears to be nearly uniformly dreadful. Take " What is Gamergate, and What Does It Say About Gender In Video Games? " by David Konnow as an example.  It appears that the writer has done little to no...

GR's iOS and Android Manifesto: Stay Core and Play Casual Games

Five Apps You Should Have


FreeAppADay (iTunes Link) or Amazon's Android Marketplace

The FreeAppADay App may not be worth $0.99, but if you want to adhere to Rule #1 as closely as possible and tend to buy apps when you're bored, this one should rise to the top of your list. FreeAppADay updates every day with... uhh, a new free app every day. Pretty easy to grasp here, I don't know why I'm even explaining this at such length. How long can I keep this going until you just scroll down and check out the next app. Still here? Ugh, now I've exhausted myself.

On the Android side of the equation, gamers should really download Amazon's Android Marketplace. The online retailer consistently offers up free apps. Back when the Amazon Android Marketplace launched, they offered Angry Birds Rio for the low price of nothing and have since followed it up with free downloads of games like Plants Vs. Zombies.


Canabalt (iTunes Link) ($2.99 as of this writing)

Indie darling Canabalt is a premier iPhone app. It's got style, it's got substance, and it's an easy boredom buster. What it lacks in variation, it makes up for in replayability. Nab some friends and compare long distances. Also, the music sounds great.





The Creeps! (iTunes Link) ($1.99 as of this writing)

The Creeps! is an excellent tower defense game where you... you know, build towers and watch them defend you. While there are several in-app purchases, there's a ton of content at the base price and you can definitely find the game for free on and off. The app has several different modes to play from survival, to mission, with a whole mess of towers to build.



Spin Crazy (iTunes Link)

Spin Crazy is like rotating Bubble Bobble. It's easily some of the most fun you'll have with mindless bubble shooting on the iPhone. It has as much replayability as marathon mode Tetris, and it gets challenging in later levels. Don't forget about the added benefit of seeming way cooler for knowing about an iPhone app outside of the mainstream.









Plants Vs. Zombies (iTunes Link($2.99 as of this writing)

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention at least one Popcap game. The manufacturer of pure addiction have several different flavors of crack for your phone, but I'd recommend Plants Vs. Zombies over everything else. There's a long campaign, a ton of plants, several different modes, and endless replay value. In fact, Popcap just updated the horticultural defense game with even more content. Seriously, if there's an app you spend more than $0.99 on, this would be acceptable. Note, though, that Popcap runs deep sales on all of their games frequently.

Now that you've read the iOS and Android Manifesto, go forth and feel secure in your masculinity hardcore gamership! If you're interested in more Apps approved by GameRevolution, stick with us as we'll bring more to you soon!
