Nothing beats a dose of firepower action with Counterstrike. Unfortunately, Counterstrike days are long gone and the only real thing you can do now is to play with the bots. Isn’t that fun? I don’t really think so — more like a desperate measure. Anyway, it’s time to reignite the kind of fun and excitement experienced during the olds days. With Critical Missions: SWAT, you can get a feel of Counterstrike and it is a really good attempt to make a first-person shooter for the iPhone and iPad. Read the rest of this article ->
Anyone using the Windows Phone 8 mobile platform is likely pleased with personalization and interactivity offered by the competitor to iOS and Android. The convenience of live tiles, which are both customizable and frequently updated, has taken the starting point offered by Windows Phone 7 to the next level.

Independent Australian developer, Christian Lee, will launch Draw Team later this month, the new social drawing party game that can be played on Apple TV. Making use of the technology of the iPad to integrate with Apple TV via AirPlay, Draw Team plays like a traditional board game minus the hassle.
“My friends and I have always been huge board game fans, and I saw the opportunity to bring real social interaction to an iOS game with the current Apple platforms,” says Christian. “I wanted to remind people of the true meaning of ‘social’, and create as much laughter as possible in the process.”
As one player draws a secretly revealed mystery word on the iPad, their drawing appears simultaneously on the television screen and other players guess the word to compete for points. Players can relive the fun by sharing amusing or remarkable drawings via email and social media platforms with friends not in the room.
The game will be free to download for a limited time and has a simple interface so is easy for children, families and groups of adults alike to pick up and play. Up to nine individuals can play at a time or for bigger parties numbers can go up to 40 in team play mode. In-app purchases of additional word packs tailored to skill level or special category such as “Difficult”, “Kids” and “Movies” enhance the experience. Read the rest of this article ->
