Love gaming on your Z10 or Z30? Check out MotoHeroz!

Motoheroz

Time for some funky racing action - this time with another Android game that you'll need to get from one of the third party app stores. This process may be a little more hassle than grabbing the game from BlackBerry World, but this one's well worth it.  You're going to be wanting to use a BlackBerry Z30 or Z10 for this one. I tried it on my Q10 and although the game loads just fine it is...

Accessory Roundup - Enter to win an external charger for your device!

One of my favorite accessories for all of my BlackBerry devices is a good spare or external battery.

Help Bear get his sugar fix in Bouncy Bear

I came across a cute little game over the weekend and it may appeal to some readers, so I thought I'd share it with you -- Bouncy Bear. It follows the premise of other popular games where you have to perform certain actions for the lead character to do in order to collect items at each stage. In this case you have to help Bear collect the candy at each stage but more important the cupcake. The...

Here's a quick heads up about a new free game which is just as annoying, yet addictive as the likes of Flappy Bird or Squiggle Racer. Can You Survive sees you controlling a 2D box that must jump over obstacles in order to complete the level.  There's only one control and that's just a simple screen tap to make the box jump, but as you will discover the game is one heck of a challenge.  With...

BlackBerry CEO John Chen lays down the law for leakers

BlackBerry CEO John Chen lays down the law for leakers

Leaks are nothing new in the BlackBerry world — they've been around forever and are just part of the game. Sure, they've slowed down a lot in the last few years, but every now and then we'll see an unreleased device, image or OS show up with some juicy new info to feed the rumor mill. Until now, BlackBerry hasn't really made any public gestures against leaks or the leakers. CEO John Chen took...

Get Real Table Tennis onto your BlackBerry 10 smartphone

Real Table Tennis

We've featured our fair share of tennis games over the last year or so for BlackBerry 10, but not table tennis that I can recall.
