Miami, 1989. You receive a mysterious voicemail on your answering machine – and before you know what’s going on, you’re covered in blood standing over a slew of mangled bodies. This is only the beginning.
Hotline Miami is a high-octane action game overflowing with raw brutality, hard-boiled gunplay and skull crushing close combat. Set in an alternative 1989 Miami, you assume the role of a mysterious antihero on a murderous rampage against the city’s criminal underworld. And Cult of Mac Deals has at the low price of $4.99 during this limited time offer.
In the late 90s, Tamagotchi pets were all the rage. The plastic, egg-shaped pocket computers came in bright colors and housed a virtual pet you had to take care of. Fast forward to late 2013, and the only pocket computers people carry around are smartphones and tablets.
Yesterday, the makers of apps like Clear and Heads Up! launched Hatch, a modern-day take on Tamagotchi for the iPhone. It’s a beautifully crafted game that utilizes the iPhone’s internals to make the pet, or Fugu, come to life.
Apple has moved to trademark the “Advertising Re-Imagined” slogan used to promote its iAd mobile advertising platform. The Cupertino company filed for the trademark on Wednesday, September 25, more than three years after it launched the iAd business.
“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” – Proverb
I’m looking forward to school starting up again. But I’m coming from a different perspective. You see, I’ve got school-aged kids and while I’ve enjoyed the time we’ve had together this summer, it’s safe to say that all of us are ready for some time away from each other. School does that…and a lot more.
The weather also won’t be cooperating with us as much as summer ends, meaning that more time inside is bound to happen. That means more time to focus on school work and less time to be distracted by the great outdoors. But just because summer is over doesn’t mean playtime has to be – which is where The Back To School Gamer Bundle comes in. In this Cult of Mac Deals offer, you’ll get 2 games at a price you name and if you pay more than the average price you’ll get an additional 4 games as well!
Apple rejects a lot of iOS apps and games, but Send Me To Heaven has to be the first that was turned away due to the way in which it is played. The aim of the game is to throw your $700 smartphone up into the air as high as you can, but rather unsurprisingly, Apple thinks that this behavior “could result in damage to the user’s device.”
Fortunately, those who enjoy smashing up expensive items can get it on Android instead.
Minigore 2: Zombies, the wonderful dual-stick shooter from Mountain Sheep, is now free for a limited time to celebrate Minigore’s fourth anniversary.

Zynga has reportedly closed down Draw Something studio OMGPOP and laid off all of its staff just 14 months after it was acquired in a $180 million deal. OMGPOP released its Draw Something sequel back in April, but it appears it wasn’t the success the company hoped it would be.
