Super Hexagon, a game so mind-numbingly difficult you'll test your iPhone's durability after throwing it across the room multiple times, was approved by Apple and made waves when it hit the App Store. Developer Terry Cavanagh's new game seems to have hit an approval snag though.
As a lifelong movie buff, I’m always enticed by games about movie stunts even though they usually suck. Regular driving or flying games do a better job recreating movie stunts. Remember Stunt Island for the PC? Hopefully Stunt Star: The Hollywood Years will be the one that makes me feel like I’m in the movies.
Zaxxon was one of the coolest '80s arcade games ever made, and now Sega, who loves updating their classics, has announced a brand new Zaxxon title called Zaxxon Escape.

The 10 best retro arcade games in the App Store should be a list of fifty games. No, a hundred! The arcades of the 1980s were a special place for millions of kids. You couldn't walk down the street without tripping over a pinball or arcade machine. They were everywhere -- from convenience stores to sandwich shops to bowling alleys. Arcades ruled the '80s but the home console boom eventually killed them off. Now you can relive some of those awesome games you grew up playing with these original -- and remixed -- arcade classics. (I wish I could include the apps no longer available, like Atari's excellent Missile Command remix, which was sadly pulled from the App Store in 2010.) Got your pocket full of quarters? Then let's begin our countdown!
What do you get when you take the pure adventure of The Legend of Zelda series, combine it with the pixelated beauty of games like Another World and Prince of Persia, and mix it all together with a group of wacky Canadian developers, musicians and artists? You get Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, one of the most fascinating and beautiful games you can play on iOS.
