Orba - Color Smasher Review

Review Kieffer Bros. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Orba - Color Smasher Review

Before we get any further in to this review - yes, Orba by the Kieffer Brothers is little more than another three-match game for the App Store, but before you automatically switch off it's genuinely worth your time. With its polished design and more-ish gameplay, you'll find yourself gravitating back to Orba just because it fills those 30s gaps of free-time in your day perfectly. Gameplay is basic and requires you to tap groups of three or more orbs to clear them from the screen. The…

Funkyball Worlds Review

Review Handmark, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Funkyball Worlds Review

Sometimes it's frustrating to find that a new App that strives to be more than just a simple mechanic palmed off as the entire game itself. Funkyball Worlds by Handmark is a stand-out from the most other physics-based platformers thanks to its charming elegance that makes it easy to pick up and play, but hard to put down. The trick to Funkyball is all in the friction. Levels consist of a series of platforms that need to be navigated while avoiding traps as you charge your way to the g…

Mission: Deep Sea Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Mission: Deep Sea Review

Thanks to some advanced technology in the world of Mission: Deep Sea by Chillingo, players are invited to take virtual control of sea turtles to help save humanity and the environment. Of course this is just a game, but beyond the overt environmentalism there's not as much depth to what's on offer here. One of the major features of Deep Sea is the gesture controls used to manipulate your sea turtle. Swipes replicate the movement of the front flippers and act like paddles to turn aroun…

Isotope: A Space Shooter Review

Review Affogato LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Isotope: A Space Shooter Review

Sometimes it's better to be late to the party than to never arrive and Isotope is the kind of twin-stick shooter that you wish you'd discovered earlier. With its rich gameplay and stunning depth of content, it's a wonder this game isn't permanently featured on the App Store. Out of the box Isotope allows you to tailor the controls to your liking, with responsive tilt and stick controls available for movement; stick and touch based aiming for weapons; and even whether or not these cont…

2012 Zombies vs Aliens Review

Review Infinidy Corp By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
2012 Zombies vs Aliens Review

Zombie plagues created by alien technology is nothing new for sci-fi stories and with a market quickly reaching saturation point for zombie-related products it's a risky theme to pull off. 2012 Zombies vs Aliens (ZvA) by Infinidy Corp pits these monstrous foes against each other in trench-based warfare over the fate of the world. ZvA takes controls of your units as they relentlessly push against the enemy and puts you in control of managing unit production to counter any obstacles in…

Critical Wave Review

Review Grannies Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Critical Wave Review

Sometimes a game doesn't need to be too complicated to grab your attention. Critical Wave by Grannies Games may just be another twin-stick shooter with neon graphics, but with its unique gameplay and evolving level bosses it's hard to put down. The controls are streamlined for the touch device with no wasted buttons in odd positions. Special weapons are deployed either by touching the outside edge of your weapon control stick or double tapping the stick for a secondary special attack.…

iBumpy Galaxy Review

Review Ivanovich By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
iBumpy Galaxy Review

iBumpy Galaxy by Ivanovich is a puzzle platformer that's not exactly easy get excited about. As a free game it's hard to complain about the basic gameplay, but when you're asked to pony up the cash for the remaining levels any issues you have with the gameplay start to look like serious flaws. To be fair to iBumpy, it's a very basic concept - collect as many objects in each level as you can and reach the exit. The faster you do this with the maximum amount of items, the better your fi…

Pirates Plunder Slots Review

Review 616 Digital LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Pirates Plunder Slots Review

Pirates Plunder by Pokie Magic is a vibrant new nautical themed slot machine for the App Store and as always it's another faithful adaption of a casino quality game. If you've never played a Pokie Magic slot machine game before there's not much to learn. It's a pick up and play game, which is obviously a good thing for a game designed for use in a casino. There's also an auto-play feature to assist on long stretches. The game's main feature mode unlocks a screen with treasure chests t…

Star Wars The Force Unleashed Review

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (TFU) is THQ's port of the Triple-A title of the same name for major consoles from 2008. TFU was originally released at the same period as the console game and had a lot to live up to compared to its technologically advanced big brothers. Each level of the story campaign will have you scrambling to execute gesture controls to eliminate your enemies. At the time, TFU's console version made a big splash for its complex physics and AI models, so a lot of ti…

Farm Frenzy 2 Review

Farm Frenzy 2 Review

Farm Frenzy 2 is the much anticipated and definitely needed sequel to the farm management and strategy series from Alawar Entertainment. Much like the original, it's still a frantic game that requires precise management at higher levels, but new refinements to the artwork and interface make this a much more polished product. Each level presents the player with a specific challenge to complete that requires careful management of your resources to succeed. All of the controls are touch…
