The iPad Air Review

October has now become the month of the iPad, and this year is no exception. Apple has unleashed 2013's models and I have been waiting to upgrade my iPad 3 for some time.

You see, the iPad 3 was the first ever Retina iPad/tablet but the problem was that the GPU was grossly underpowered to run smoothly for a lot of graphic intensive tasks.

Michelin Game - The Occupant Review

With Halloween just around the corner, it's little wonder that a number of horror games are being released this week. Indigo Lake, which I have just reviewed is probably the scariest game on the iOS platform. And now, we have The Occupant.

Written and developed by a 2-man team, it is based off the Unreal engine and the game itself has a very simple premise.

Michelin Game - Batman Arkham City Lockdown Review

2010's release of Infinity Blade has brought about a slew of similar swipe/touch combat games on the iOS platform, and with the recent release of the iOS version of Batman Arkham Origins, I thought it would be good to look back at 2011's Batman game that was based off the same console game that year.

Certainly, it bears a lot of similarities to the Infinity Blade series, and is a stripped down storyline of the console version. Despite that, it is still the best Batman game for the iPad and iPhone.

Michelin Game - Indigo Lake Review

There are very few horror videogames that are actually terrifying, and even fewer on the iOS platform. But 3 Cubes Research seems to want to alter that with their latest release.

Indigo Lake is also an iOS game unlike any that I have come across so far. It is a combination of a few gaming genres, and yet as a whole, it feels very fresh and inventive as well.

Michelin Game - Trouserheart Review

There has been many Diablo clones in iOS gaming, and for that matter, a fair number of hack and slash type of games on this platform. For the most part, they are usually quite competent and playable, and some like Orc: Vengence, are really quite outstanding.

Yet, there has never been one that really compelled me to play until the end, as most of such games tend to be quite repetitive and consist of very cliche storylines.

Classic Mac Games - Quake by id Software

This is the first in a new series of posts that I will be focusing on gaming on the Mac platform, which has been largely ignored by a number of gaming blogs and publications.

And this is surprising, considering the ease of setup that a Mac affords, against the heaps of loops that one has to go through to setup a PC rig just for gaming. And I would like to kick off this series with one of the most influential games of all time.

iPad Menu Food Ordering - Dehumanizing The Human Experience

As more and more F&B eateries in Singapore are faced with rising operating costs, certain eateries are turning to technology and gadgets to replace the human element.

One of the current trends is to take away the waiter and replace he or she with an iPad as an ordering alternative. This will inevitable reduce headcount and save costs in the long run.

Broken Earth - A Pop Music Album Made Entirely On The iPad

Finally, after almost a year since my last musical work, I have completed Broken Earth, and it should be out in all music digital stores including iTunes, Amazon etc by the time you read this.

It is also my first ever vocal album, having done only instrumental music in the past. Consisting of 8 songs, I touch on various topics and things that I have been meaning to get off my chest.

Michelin Game - Melodive

It is only March 2013, but I think I am already playing the game of the year. A game that is so clever and simple.

The game is called Melodive, and it is another one of those one man developer games that comes out of nowhere and is making a splash right now.

Michelin Game - Aftermath

With the recent popularity of The Walking Dead series in comics and TV, and the success of the recent video game of the same name, zombie games are currently the rage on the app store.

There have so many releases of zombie games and shooters that it is almost hard to pick out one that truly stands out. Thankfully, TwoHeads Games actually managed to produce one such standout.
