App stores are landmine territory for less savvy online surfers and slightly lazy parents. It’s very easy to download apps and games that have the word “free” plastered next to them, even if they require a lot out of your pocket to actually work as intended. This is especially true for free-to-play games, which have hidden behind the "free "sticker on mobile since the very beginning. That’s thankfully not the case anymore.
Don't ask my why I'm obsessed with tower defense games. I honestly can't tell you why I love them so much, but I do. And one of the best tower defense games was Kingdom Rush. Beautiful, tactical and appealing to all my OCD urges, if you haven't played the first two Kingdom Rush games, you probably should. And now there will be another.
This is our busiest time of year. With so many games launching at the same time, it's hectic to get all our reviews out on time. However, even during these busy times, we somehow make time to play on our handheld devices, if only while sitting on the throne. Here's how we occupy those few moments of downtime.

Well at least that’s what I thought yesterday.

Smart watches… they’ve been around for a while now, but it seems that they’re all up in my face since Apple announced their own version. Personally, I’m not sold. I just can’t wrap my head around having a whole new device on my wrist when a simple stretch to a pocket for my phone can provide the same functionality and more. I’m a minority though. Many consumers are interested in them, and companies like EA are interested in utilising them for unique gaming experiences.
SimCity doesn’t exactly ring popular with those still sore over the botched PC launch last year. Another tune that doesn’t sit well with most people is EA on mobile platforms, especially after what they pulled with Dungeon Keeper. So what would happen if two of the most unpopular headaches in recent memory combined? SimCity BuildIt happens.
