Paper Toss Review 0

Paper Toss is an Apple i-pod touch/i-phone game in which you are trying to flick a wad of paper into a trash can. Sounds easy enough, until of course you introduce the power of a desktop fan, that's when the challenge really beings.Graphically you're looking at one object that is going to be moving, and that's the wad of paper. I do find it fun that the background is a sea of cubicles. Actually the more I think about it the more they look like the cubicles that I spend my days in.A word to the w...

PowerStone Collection Review 0

PowerStone Collection is a bundling of PowerStone 1 and 2 for the PSP. These games originally came out for SEGA systems, but due to the fact that there is no longer a SEGA system they have found their way to the PSP.

Mortal Kombat vs. DC Review 0

Mortal Kombat vs. DC is a cross over fighter brought to you by Midway. You'll be able to take on the cast of Mortal Kombat with several different super heroes and villains from the DC universe, and visa versa. This game feels like a Mortal Kombat Lite game.

Tap Tap, is basically the guitar hero clone for the apple platform.
