Game On Mac editors have compiled the latest and greatest features over the week that was. Be sure to check them all out and then swing on over to iTunes to pick up a few of these terrific titles.
NOVA 2 Review: Strap on your suit and get ready to rumble -- N.O.V.A. 2 is a first person shooter that will blow you and hundreds of nasties to smithereens. Gameloft's original Halo clone was the best FPS on the App Store in its day, and the sequel, N.O.V.A. 2 destroys it -- and every other iPad or iPhone/iPod Touch game of its type. Featuring better graphics, more and smarter enemies, cool special effects and gameplay options, and the best FPS multiplayer on the iOS platform, this is a game that will make you care not a whit about the near-total lack of story.
Family Guy: Warped In Time Review: I saw that Family Guy Time Warped by Glu was getting some decent hype on iTunes so I thought I’d give it a go. If you’re thinking about this game keep this in mind. It’s well worth the $1 price tag, but that’s mostly due to the fact that it’s loaded with clips from the show. I’m not sure $1 for just the game would be worth it.
Mac App Store Review: One million downloads in the first day. Now that’s an impressive number even before you know what I’m talking about, right? It’s more impressive still when you come to find out that I’m talking about the much anticipated App store for the Mac.
Trucks & Skulls Review: Many people out there probably wouldn't purchase an iPhone game called Trucks & Skulls because, well, it's called Trucks and Skulls. I, on the other hand, spent the .99 cents specifically because of its crappy title and the promises of trucks and skulls within. Unfortunately, the only way to describe this game is as a Trucked and Skulled version of Angry Birds. Now, that doesn't mean I don't like the game. Let's break it down.
Firetail 2 Review: I went on a tear through the iTunes store recently, searching for games similar to games I had played in various forms years ago. It was this little trip down nostalgia lane that led me to picking up Fire Tail 2 due to the similarities it appeared to share with Java games like Fill It and actual titles like Qix, and I was not disappointed.
