James Bond: World of Espionage (And Apparently Terrible Mobile Games)

There is a new James Bond mobile game out, called James Bond: World Of Espionage! Haven’t heard of it? Probably because it hasn’t been advertised at all.

In just a few months, I’ve explored places I’d never seen before, met tons of new and… » 6/10/15 3:40pm 6/10/15 3:40pm

Celebrate Game Boy's 25th Anniversary With a Tetris Birthday Card

Nintendo's Game Boy turned 25 this week. We've come a very long way in mobile gaming since then, but the gray brick with the queasy green screen still holds a place in our hearts.

Holy Shit I Just Spent $236 on Candy Crush, Help

I don't understand. It's just Bejeweled. With candy. What's the big deal? Innocent words from a better time. A better place. Before I'd ever made that deplorable journey to the App Store and downloaded... it. Candy Crush Saga. Now, about a month later, I've lost a little over $230, hours of battery life, and any… » 8/07/13 3:30pm 8/07/13 3:30pm

Zeemote JS1 Nunchuk Gaming Controller Bundles With Sony Ericsson W760

The Zeemote analog joystick controller for Bluetooth phones is now starting to see the light of day, at least for lucky Dutch W760 buyers, who will get it free as a promo package. This isn't the Wii-like motion-control version the company has been promising, and still no word on U.S. pricing or availability, but it… » 8/04/08 10:30am 8/04/08 10:30am

Gosub 60's Camera Phone Darts: Here's Tomato In Your Eye


A few days ago we ripped DoCoMo for thinking about turning the phone into a Wii remote, but now I think the technology was unfairly compared to Nintendo's little miracle baby. As we said, there's no room for swashbuckling or tennis, but the right motion-sensitive phone game can be fun. And here, I'm talking about… » 4/25/07 9:59pm 4/25/07 9:59pm
