My five year-old nephew wants to be a ‘game inventor’ when he grows up. He’s got all sorts of mad ideas for games he’s gonna make including one where Sonic the Hedgehog teams up with the robots from Pacific Rim to kick Doctor Eggman’s ass. Sounds awesome!

I actually meant to post about this game when it was originally released last year but for one reason or another didn’t get round to it. Thankfully its feature the other day on the App Store reminded me about it again. Stick Tennis is a really cool Adobe AIR tennis game that will have you […]
