Over the past fourteen splendid months here at SQ we’ve brought you only the best, filtered iOS games for your iPhone, from the addiction that was Pixel People all the way to my current action-RPG fave Wayward Souls. This evening however I present to you a different game – Bill Killem – which is not only a phenomenally addictive, and just downright fun retro platformer that’s part Contra and part Majora’s Mask, but something else. It’s freakin’ free!
While you probably don’t have an hour and a half to sit through a video this Monday morning, this incredible speed run video through Dark Souls 2 – the latest installment in a trilogy that ranks as arguably the most challenging video game series since the pre-save your game days – deserves your attention. While I just recently picked up Dark Souls 2 this past week – my initial thoughts are coming this weekend – I was a huge fan of Demon’s Souls which started this crazy series off, and I’ve also been known to peruse into the world of video game speed runs, although I prefer to stick in the retro arena. And by retro I mean Goldeneye 64. More on this crazy speed run after the jump!
Have you ever felt a little overwhelmed with the ridiculous amount of volume in the Apple App Store when searching for a new go-to iOS game? You aren’t alone – there are countless rehashes of essentially the exact same game, whether it’s a running side-scroller title or name-the-new-RTS game, they are basically the same old thing under a different coat of paint. Once you jump into it the new paint begins to fade and boredom sets in; minutes or hours later the game is deleted, and it will probably be even longer until you visit the store for yet another fruitless search. That’s where SQ comes in: we weed through the metric truckloads of garbage apps to find you the best of the best – free and paid – so you can spend your hard-earned free time enjoying only the best high quality iOS games and apps. Our latest gem just happens to be the iOS game of the week, and although the store’s “game of the week” doesn’t always impress, Monument Valley does.
Many game publishers would be thrilled after selling 2.7 million copies of their latest title in a month, but Blizzard is not your average video game publisher. In their latest press release, Blizzard announced some impressive week one sales for their first Diablo III expansion pack, Reaper of Souls, with sales topping an incredible 2.7 million units. As a proud owner of this excellent expansion pack myself, I couldn’t be happier, and I would argue that it is well-worth the somewhat steep asking price of $40. That being said, let’s put on our business hats and see what kind of week one revenue the D3 division is staring at! Hit the link below for the details!
I am pretty damn picky when it comes to iPhone/iOS games and apps; Mutant Mudds was the last game that really got me hooked, and I still find myself running back through those 3D levels in a vain attempt to reach 100% completion (get back to me in a few years). Although I have a track record of downloading many different iOS games on my iPhone 5, the majority get deleted either right away, or within a day or two at the latest. Ridiculous Fishing is one of those rare, insanely addicting iOS games that has made its way onto my iPhone, and I can’t stop playing it. And for only $2.99 in the App Store, this game is absolutely well worth it. More details on why we like Ridiculous Fishing after the link.
