    Wikipad review

    By 5 September 2013

    Meet the Wikipad, a 7-inch gaming tablet that slides in and out of a portable controller dock. After Ouya made the gaming industry realise the Android platform could actually threaten consoles, a slew of new Google-friendly hardware has jumped from the...

    APP OF THE DAY: Wind-up Knight review (Android)

    By 8 February 2013

    There's only a couple of controls, you think. How hard can it be, you question. The answer is, very hard indeed, so forget about the apparent simplicity of Wind-up Knight, because it's all superficial - this is the hardest game of all time. Okay, it isn't,...

    App of the day: Wreck-it Ralph review (Android, iPhone)

    By 30 November 2012

    If you're not excited about the upcoming movie Wreck-it Ralph, then you obviously didn't waste your youth playing video games in arcades, or hunched in front of a CRT TV trying to make a yellow Pac-man eat some pills and annoy some ghosts. The game, from...

    APP OF THE DAY: Edge review (Android)

    By 19 October 2012

    Sometimes App of The Day is an app we couldn't live without; sometimes it's a game we love; and sometimes - like today - it's a game we utterly despise because it's so fiendishly difficult, but simply can't live without because of it's style and sheer...

    APP OF THE DAY: World of Goo review (Android)

    By 2 October 2012

    To be honest, World of Goo is a bit odd.The first time you load it up, it doesn't make huge amounts of sense. And if you don't know what you're doing, it can take a little while to fumble through. But there's also something vaguely unnerving about helping...

    APP OF THE DAY: Refraction review (Android)

    By 21 September 2012

    The whole point of App of the Day is to find you a game that is brilliant, or an app that helps you in some crucial way. However, we do sometimes worry that our tips are causing a massive decline in the productivity of the UK and beyond. That's because,...

    APP OF THE DAY: Where's My Perry? review (Android/iPhone)

    By 9 July 2012

    It's always nice to see new levels added to an existing game, but the smart bucks are on creating a new game, within an existing, successful, format. If Swampy the Alligator is your best friend, then we've got good news for you. Perry the Platypus might...

    APP OF THE DAY: Ninja Fishing review (Android)

    By 6 July 2012

    Ninja this, Ninja that. It seems that if your game doesn't feature a Ninja of some kind, you might as well not bother releasing it. It's like TV shows without zombies or vampires: pointless So enter Fishing Ninja. That's right, a Ninja has been shoehorned...

    APP OF THE DAY: Zombie Dash review (Android)

    By 15 March 2012

    Today's App of the Day on Pocket-lint is definitely on the casual side of Android gaming. It's a medium-to-large size download at 5.1MB, the graphics are perfectly acceptable, the game does not take long to get the hang of and, while we don't expect it...

    APP OF THE DAY: Pinball Arcade review (Android and iOS)

    By 1 March 2012

    It’s back to games today on App of the Day, and here is one that you can play on both Android and iPhone. You can certainly play on your mobile phone but, if you happen to own a tablet that works on either OS, then your luck is really in. Think The...

    APP OF THE DAY: Beyond Ynth HD and Xmas Edition review (Android)

    By 19 December 2011

    It's not uncommon for popular apps to roll out an update for Christmas, a special festive version to see you into the holidays with a bit of gaming cheer. They don't always make for the best apps, but when they're free, you can't complain too much. Of...

    APP OF THE DAY: Tiny Tower review (Android)

    By 21 November 2011

    We feel that the success of mobile gaming revolves around simplicity of concept and innovation, rather than out and out visuals and blockbuster action. We've seen a number of such titles on Android, but it's always nice when one crosses over from the...
