[At the time of this writing, GodFinger for iPhone/iPod Touch is available in some places but not others. You can find out if it’s available at your app store here.] GodFinger is an odd mash-up of casual game, Populous and a splash of social gaming. The idea here is that […]

This is another one of those “How’d I miss this?” posts. Small Worlds is a flash game described by designer David Shute as “A short atmospheric game about exploring.” You may have already played it; if so, why didn’t you tell me about it!? It takes a few minutes to […]

Warning: This is very much a preliminary post, based on my current understanding of Facebook’s new “LIKE” buttons. But since the feature is live now, I feel like I need to warn people about the ‘potential’ issues sooner rather than later. So without further ado. We used to see Share […]

My work weeks are hectic these days, so even though I bought my iPad last Monday, I never got to put my feet up and spend an hour or two just *using* it until Friday night. But all weekend I’ve been using it a lot. I’ve now identified my likes […]

First I have to say, most of this post (I assume) applies to the iPhone and iPod Touch as well as the iPad. So today I had my first lover’s spat with the iPad. It was my fault, really. I keep falling into the trap of thinking of it like […]
