Video: Meet Kelso’s Quest, one of the hottest-looking iOS games we’ve seen this year

Kelso’s Quest is the latest creation from Avocoder, the mobile app developer behind Toasty Boy, a Flappy Bird parody that managed to crack the top 100 free games chart on the App Store last month. Unlike Toasty Boy, Kelso’s Quest is a completely original title, mixing in elements of the puzzle and adventure genres as the eponymous Kelso journeys through treacherous environments in search of his kidnapped son. At the end of each set of levels, Kelso will face off against a boss, learning more about the motivations behind the kidnapping as he takes down a variety of evil beasts. Kelso’s Quest is expected to launch on the App Store this week and Google Play in the future. The full trailer follows below.

Here’s how the Xbox One can finally catch up to Sony’s PS4

The Xbox One has a major PS4 problem, recent sales numbers have revealed, with sales of Sony’s new console sales seriously outpacing Microsoft’s. While Sony has recently announced that it sold 7 million PS4 units, Microsoft was only able to say it shipped over 5 million units to stores, without saying how many of them have actually been sold. Forbes says that in order to prevent Sony from further widening the gap, and winning the early Xbox One vs PS4 war, Microsoft has to cut the price of the Xbox One. More →

Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition Android

Now Android fans can play one of the greatest computer games ever on their tablets

By on April 18, 2014 at 9:15 PM.

Now Android fans can play one of the greatest computer games ever on their tablets

Old-school RPG fans still get nostalgic when you bring up Baldur’s Gate, the classic Bioware D&D-based adventure that set the standard for computer RPGs when it was released all the way back in 1998. In fact, the Balur’s Gate series’s popularity has been so enduring that studio Beamdog has overhauled it with improved graphics and features while also adding touch controls to make it easy to play on tablets. Although Beamdog released its Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition for the iPad a while ago, the studio has finally gotten around to porting it to Android, and it’s now available on the Google Play store for $9.99. Although the iPad version of the overhauled Baldur’s Gate received mixed marks for its buggy controls, early reviews of the game over at Google Play are pretty strong, as it’s currently averaging a score of 4.5 stars based on 72 reviews.
