Geared: The iPod Puzzle Game With A Mechanical Twist

So what do a couple of gears and a hamster add up to? The sequel to the best-selling puzzle game for the iPhone and iPod Touch, that's what!

It's been two hours, I barely got any work done, but I'm still hooked.

Put the Killer Behind Bars in the Real Crimes: The Unicorn Killer Video Game

Real Crimes: The Unicorn Killer intrigued me from the get-go because it wasn't just your ordinary hidden object mystery game. It was based on a true crime that happened in 1977, hence the title. This fact can turn off a lot of people right from the start. I mean, one reason why people turn to games and to a virtual world is to escape from the real one, right? Even for just a little while.

Hit Three in a Row in the Zuma Deluxe Video Game

Now Zuma Deluxe is a Match 3 type of video game that I think is definitely a force to be reckoned with. I first played this game a few years back when I was still in college.

I eventually forgot about it until yesterday.

That song by America literally began playing in my head as I was reading up on this innovative app(cessory) for the iPhone and iPod Touch: the Pinball Magic.
