This last two weeks have been a blur of xbox guns and PS3 single player games, but a few iOS gems have been able to steal me away from the large heavy weights of the gaming family.

I have been focused on getting through Tin Man’s Game Book Adventure series before the next book lands. I have also been focused on some of the EA titles I managed to grab during the EA Easter sale. I would also like to note that PopCap are having a huge sale over the next week so go check out their site for the deal of the day.

I have spent more time with Madden 11, Sim City and Command & Conquer. These games are a lot of fun, each upholds the great gameplay expected and strategy needed to beat them. Madden controls well enough to make it fun, frustrating at times but it’s a sports game on the iPad. Sim City and C&C play very well on the medium. Controls are a major hurdle for many games that have multiple platforms or have been around for many years and both of these work very well. Worth picking up.

But I must say the games of the week are the GBA series. These choose-your-own adventure books with elements of dice play are just so much fun. The stories are great in themselves, but when you are faced with a choice that you know will turn you towards drama, your heart skips a beat. Each of the stories are so original and easy to read, you will never want to put them down. If you don’t already have some of these in your collection, get one and try them out. I just glad the TinMen are committed to releasing them every few months.
