BoboBua (FULL Version) Review

Review TripodGames By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
BoboBua (FULL Version) Review

If you were a meatball who just watched your beloved (another meatball) be consumed in front of your eyes, what would you do? Why you'd launch yourself into the gullet of the person who ate them, bringing along your best friend who's a noodle and go on a quest to battle food through a digestive tract in order to save her. At least that's how the story goes for BoboBua by Tripod Games. The gameplay has been self dubbed as an attempt at a purely casual, relaxing and rewarding experience…

Bear Paw Review

Review Neil Balharrie By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Bear Paw Review

If there's one word to describe Bear Paw by Neil Balharrie, it's "elegant". Simplicity is the key to this orbit physics simulator and with its basic controls and basic gameplay Bear Paw is more about enjoying the experience than beating it. Like other orbit simulators, the goal is to stay alive for a set period of time. Each level is played the same way with players setting up their ship with a touch and giving it a trajectory and power with a slide of the finger. After this control i…

Low Grav Racer 2 Review

Review Cobra Mobile Limited By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Low Grav Racer 2 Review

In the same vein as futuristic racers like Wipeout and F-Zero, Low Grav Racer 2 is Cobra Mobile's second attempt at bringing high-speed, face melting combat-based racing to the App Store. Much of the inconsistency that plagued the previous game's controls have returned proving to be too sensitive at slow speeds and almost dead at high speeds, but thankfully the addition of sensitivity options and practice can make this manageable. The physics are fairly fanciful and make it difficult…

Inotia 2: A Wanderer of Luone Review

Review Com2uS Corp. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Inotia 2: A Wanderer of Luone Review

Inotia: A Wanderer of Luone is the sequel to Com2uS' self proclaimed first touch action RPG on the App Store. It has a lot to live up to, with the first being a fairly basic hack'n'slash that ultimately felt like a game for fans of the genre. In this new adventure a lot more effort has gone into not only the story, but also the gameplay itself, now boasting five classes and the ability to party with two other members. You can choose between using a virtual d-pad or touch screen contro…

Snow Moto Racing Review

Review Dohi Sweden By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Snow Moto Racing Review

Snow Moto Racing is the self proclaimed first snowmobile racing game available on the App Store by Resolution Interactive, but can this bite-sized racer compete against its bigger brothers? The controls are mostly tilt-based, using touches for performing stunts and other minor actions. Turning feels really nice though it may take a bit of initial adjustment to get used to what feels like two-levels of sensitivity while turning. Snow isn't the most common terrain for a racing game to s…

Finger Dancer Review

Review Vitaly Pronkin By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Finger Dancer Review

There aren't too many games that really make use of the multi-touch features available on the iPhone, but Finger Dancer by mifki makes multi-touch almost the only gameplay mechanic. Much about this game relies on simplicity, from its graphics to the available features, but they all serve a deceptively addictive competitive game. Finger Dancer relies on the player using two different kinds of touches, either a direct tap or an extended hold. The challenge comes in managing to perform t…

Ski Champ Review

Review Eric Farraro By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Ski Champ Review

Freestyle skiing, slalom and abominable snow monsters. These evoke powerful memories for some from a game that was either impossible or so much fun that you were able to restart the entire mountain as it wrapped around at the end. Ski Champ is an updated SkiFree for the App Store by Lazy Peon Games and gives the game a genuinely well earned retouching. Cruising down the mountain slopes at high speeds is a snap as players control their skier by sliding their finger across the bottom of…

Gallop for Gold Slots Review

Review 616 Digital LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Gallop for Gold Slots Review

Gallop for Gold Slots by Pokie Magic is probably one of the best slot machine games the company has brought out for the iPhone, and while that may not be saying much, it's can be a genuinely fun game to enjoy. What makes this game stand out is the new and amazingly fun Horse Racing feature. Getting a golden horse on the first and last reel triggers the game mode and switches screens allowing you to watch your horse race against other competitors in over 48 different cups. Winnings fro…

Bix Review

Review Padadaz By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Bix Review

Bix by Padadaz is a great new arcade game that fuses the classic gameplay from Taito's Qix with more modern gameplay adaptions from Jezzball and KBounce. For those who don't know these iconic games, Bix is an arcade game that has you racing to claim screen's space without being hit by balls bouncing around the increasingly smaller play area. Your "tracer" is controlled by simple directional swipes to indicate which direction it should draw a line and subsequently create a box. Lives a…

Twilight Golf Review

Review Andrew Korth By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Twilight Golf Review

Sometimes a developer can get so caught up in showing off new and exciting features that they forget to make a game out of it that's genuinely interesting and not just a demo of "cool stuff". Howling Moon Software almost trips over that line in Twilight Golf, however it's a serene experience to enjoy from start to finish. Twilight Golf is, as the name suggests, a golf-like game where stroke angle and power are determined by dragging away from the ball and at an angle. This is easy to…

Tilteroids Review

Review JackCraft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Tilteroids Review

You'd be forgiven for thinking that Tilteroids by JackCraft isn't the most original name for a game that involves TILTing the iPhone to shoot asteROIDS, but when a game does both of these things so well it's hard to call it anything else. As you'd expect tilting performs the main duty of controlling your craft around the screen maneuvering your ship and at the same time aiming your weapon. Tilting to the sides smoothly rotates your shots left and right while moving side-to-side; tilti…

Daxterpieces Review

Review Baby Carrot Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Daxterpieces Review

Games as art is a debate that has dragged many people under its heavy weight, but no matter which side you choose to take it's always a treat to try out art as games. Daxterpieces by Baby Carrot Studios is a rather simple puzzle game that aims to let players explore artwork that's changeable and interactive. Each puzzle is a simple piece of artwork that can be flicked through with swipes similar to those used in the photo roll. No zooming is available, but tapping sections of the artw…

The Impossible Quiz! Review

Review inXile Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
The Impossible Quiz! Review

Games that aim to annoy are an odd breed. The Impossible Quiz by inXile Entertainment dances on the line of frustration and entertainment with care and when you accept the challenge you do so knowing it won't be fair. Playing the game involves being taunted with touch-to-respond answers that require thoughts so bendy they'd only look straight in a carnival fun house mirror maze. There's not as much of a dependance on "what am I thinking" logic puzzles and more of a dependance on "gues…

Baseball Superstars® 2010 Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Baseball Superstars® 2010 Review

After a long wait, fans of GAMEVIL's Baseball Superstars 2009 can finally pick up the sequel to their favorite game. 2010 continues to bring solid arcade baseball action to the iPhone with all the features you've come to expect of the series and a bit more polish. The controls have seen a bit of an overhaul in this sequel, removing a lot of the clutter from the previous game. Whether you're pitching or hitting, a virtual d-pad makes it easy to select where you're going to throw or hit…

Guardian Soul Review

Review SK planet By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Guardian Soul Review

Guardian Soul by Nate Games is easily one of the strongest competitors against other Eastern RPGs on the iPhone and almost directly competes against leading games like Zenonia. Guardian Soul is an Eastern take on the Action RPG genre and adds "collecting" to the mix as you discover new "guardians" to transform in to and defeat your enemies. In order to accommodate the normal interface and its virtual buttons the menus and game in general are scaled down immensely and will require some…
