Card Hunter becomes Loot & Legends and now available for iPad

I’ve been play­ing this cool D&D‑like game on the PC for a while now, and am quite happy to see it on the iPad. Card Hunter Loot & Legends has a very old-school feel to it, includ­ing some ‘unusu­al’ com­ment­ary from the Dun­geon Mas­ter. It’s a free app, with in-app pur­chases for addi­tion­al char­ac­ters, etc. […]

A great couple of weeks to be an iOS gamer

A Tale of Two RPGs

Here’s why… It’s Big The Battle for Wesnoth (which I’ll […]

Old school dungeon crawling on the iPhone

Last week Torch­light was released. Future Shop Techb­log­ger Mat­thew Kumar wrote a great over­view of the game. But there was a time, way back in the last cen­tury, when sim­il­ar com­puter games were played without the bene­fit of 3D graph­ic cards, Dolby Sur­round Sound, or mice and gamepad macro pro­gram­ming applic­a­tions.
