There is no doubt that Hitman game and movies were not only successful, they were stylish and cool too. However, that was on the big screen and on a games console, so when Hitman GO was launched recently for the mobile gaming market we have to wonder how that is going to work. Well, surprisingly the developers Square Enix have opted for a slightly different look and feel for in order for it to fit in with the Smartphone and tablet sized screen. Therefore, Hitman GO is a puzzle style game based on the player making one move at a time and it is not as easy as it sounds.
The player gets all the normal goodies such as useful distractions, interesting disguises, crucial hiding spots, as well as the essential sniper rifles and of course, it would not be Hitman without a pair of those iconic Silverballers at your side. This stylish game is available from iTunes for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch with a price tag of $4.99, £2.99 or €4.49. The developers say that the Android version of this game is in development and will be launching in due course.

With the end of the Harry Potter series of books and movies, it seems that there are a lot of wizards at a lose end. So in order to keep from getting into trouble there is Hogwarts Extreme, it is an RPG but when you visit the site, it has the look and feel of a classic college. So, if you are feeling at a lose end and do not know what to do with your wizards hat, cap and wand, then this could be the place to visit and maybe even sign up for magical fun. This has been online for quite some time and a lot of changes have taken place in that time, but for the first time visitor it must be like turning up to Hogwarts for the very first time.

You can sign up to join Hogwarts Extreme at anytime no magic required although a bit of wizardry might come in handy.
The game of chess is all about strategy and cunning, but actual chess sets can be quite exciting like this Star Wars based chess set. All of the characters are there, with the Rebels in gold and the Empire in silver each facing each other off across the board.

If you wondering where the history books Assassins Creed would be set next well look no further than the French Revolution 1789 to 1799, it was a pleasant place for the ruling classes as they quite often lost their heads, quite literally.

We already know that there is an app available for almost anything, well it seems that there is another addition to the list with the cool and slightly gruesome Ingrown Toenail app from Clearly Trained. Its for the owners of iOS powered devices, who have a problem with their toes and do not want to seek out professional health care as they think it is easy enough to do it yourself. Obviously, we are certainly not recommending that this sort of thing should be done at home.
So, you already know that this is app for a certain group of people, but what does it actually offer the user? Basically, this is virtual surgery, but you do get an introduction before getting stuck in with cleaning, anesthesia, cutting, removal and cleaning up afterwards. This app is available for the owners of the iPhone for $0.99 from the iTunes store, its a fun game for all the family!

This is a great way of covering your games console with something that is completely different, if you like that sort of thing.
This wooden covering in four different shades will set you back around 150 euros, it might seem a lot, but this a wooden cover made by craftsman from real wood and when you think of the shape and design of the PS4 its amazing how a wooden cover can fit so perfectly, yet it does.

You job is to simply look out for smoke and alert your supervisor of the location so that the appropriate action can be put into place. However, is really that easy, this is the wilderness after all and some strange things have been known to occur?
In the game, something on the horizon will get your attention and you have no alternative but to leave your safe haven and enter the dark forest below.

Sometimes we come across games that are so addictive that all other games are left alone gathering dust. Threes is one such game, but it used to only be available from iTunes, but now it is available from Google Play and that means Android users are able to play Threes! The game is simple and that is what makes it addictive, after all nobody wants to be playing an over complicated game while travelling home from work on the train or bus. Threes comes with a cool soundtrack and great cast of characters to play as.
Now, it seems that from the comments left, some gamers might think that this game is slow or boring so it is one of those games that might have been better with a free trail allowing the gamer to make their own mind up before parting with their hard earned cash for the full version of the game. It is just an idea, but who are we to tell the studios what to do. This is a paid for game, so you are going to have to expect to pay around $2 or £1.20 for it! It is available right now from Google Play for Android devices and from iTunes for iOS devices.
There are plenty of commuters travelling on the London Underground, Paris Metro, New York City Subway and any other service serving a city from under the streets, who think that they can do a better job at running the service than the current management. Well, thanks to Dinosaur Polo Club, a cool developer studio who are based in Wellington, New Zealand and were founded by twins Peter and Robert Curry, you can give it go. They have come up Mini Metro a game that requires the player to expand, redesign and manage their rail network.
Of course, this is a bit of fun at first, but as you develop your rail service the pressure is on to keep it going and it’s not always easy as you find soon find out. It is safe to say that Mini Metro is one of those games that could become highly addictive; do not say that you have been warned! At launch, there will be four cities to play with, but as your network develops, it almost becomes a living work of art and it has trains too. What is not to like about this game, nothing it is clever and you can share with your friends via social networks.
