The 3 best Tin Man Games adventures you can play on your iPad and iPhone

Tin Man Games has got a new version of the classic gamebook The Warlock of Firetop Mountain coming out next week, so I thought this was a pretty good time to look at some of the company’s other games and decide which three are the best.

Yeah, that’s right, it’s time for one of those articles where I make subjective choices about games in order to get you riled up and shouting at me in the comments. Alas though, it never really works.

Anyway, if you’re just starting your Tin Man journey, these three games are the ones you should be starting with. And if you click on their emboldened names you’ll be taken to the App Store where you can download them. Awwwwww yeah.

Appointment with F.E.A.R


This is the only game on the list that ties back to the Fighting Fantasy gamebooks with which Tin Man made its digital name. And it’s a step up from the more standard swords-and-sorcery experience.

You’re a superhero who’s trying to save the world. And stay alive. And do a bunch of other stuff as well. And the whole game is presented a lot like a comic, which makes it far more exciting to look at.

Bright and bold and with an intriguing story, if you’ve ever thought gamebooks were a bit stuffy, then this is an amazing place to start your adventures.…

The best games on sale on iPad and iPhone right now – February 15th

It’s Wednesday, the middle of the week, and that means it’s time for us to have a long hard look at five of the best games that are on sale on the App Store right now.

And for the first time in a while it’s actually been pretty tough to pick which ones to add to the list. Basically everything here is a gem, and there are other gems on sale as well.

But I’m a discerning gem-picker with an eye for quality, so these are the ones I’ve gone for. Click on the emboldened name of the game and you’ll be whisked away to the App Store where you can buy the game. You’re welcome.

Motorsport Manager – Free

Where the likes of New Star Soccer kick around whimsy with their sport managing, this one’s a little more po-faced. And if anything, it’s better for it.

Take control of a racing team and lead them to glory. Or if you’re anything like me, lead them to the back of the grid and bankruptcy.

Infinity Blade 2 – Free

A classic. It might not quite have the focus of the original, but it’s not as bloated as the third game in th…

5 games you should play with your significant other this Valentine’s Day

Love is in the air. Or it might be the sulphurous emanations of the portal to hell that this whole world seems to be getting sucked deeper and deeper into everyday. Either way, it’s Valentine’s day tomorrow.

And that means I’m going to have to create some content. Because I just love that sweet SEO. Mmmmm, come to me SEO, dance with me in the moonlight and tell me of your many secrets.

Anyway, in this here piece of super on point internet writing, I’m going to tell you the three games you should definitely play with your significant other tomorrow. Because spread the love and all that.

The Room Series


So it’s not multiplayer, but that’s not the point. The Room games are the sort of mobile experiences that are guaranteed to draw people around your iPad. So why not get snuggled in and play through some gothic pokey horror?

Progress to 100


Again, not a multiplayer game, but exactly the sort of thing that you should play when other people are around. Figure out a bunch of strange commands, and then poke and prod your iPad to make them happen.

Spaceteam


A wonderful way to shout utter nonsense at your significant other. And to sort of explore space. But a silly kind of space full of buttons that fall off the c…

The 5 best iPad and iPhone games this week – 12th February

It’s Sunday. And that can only mean one thing. We’re all horribly sad that the weekend has come to such a horrible yet inevitable conclusion. But there’s still time for one more thing.

And it’s this one thing – a list of the five best games that came out last week. In no particular order, rather presented in the order that they came to me while I was sat on my sofa wondering what went wrong with my life.

Join us next week for more exciting content about the world of mobile games. And probably a bunch of other stuff as well. Maybe sandwiches? I really like sandwiches.

Voyageur

A text-based adventure with its own unique style. It might get a little bit repetitive towards the end, but there’s also a lot going on to recommend it.

There’s a great bit of writing here, and the game manages to mix its RPG tropes together into a compelling adventure that pushes you deeper into its galactic core.

Maze Lord


A game about trawling thro…
