Castle Frenzy Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Castle Frenzy Review

Castle Frenzy by Gameloft combines some of the best features of the castle defense genre (while borrowing heavily from rival developer Chillingo) and brings the game to the third dimension. If you've played Knights Onrush before you'll feel more than a sense of déjà vu, but the gameplay is still a blast to enjoy as you deal with new enemies and master new attack techniques. This is a touch and flick type of defense game and enemy selection is surprisingly accurate, which…

Puppy Palooza Review

Review Rock Ridge Games, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Puppy Palooza Review

The 80s came and left us over a decade ago, but its influences still haunt us today. For better or worse one of those influences is Simon, the electronic "Simon Says". As a toy it has its place in history, but in gaming it has often been part of a greater game and not the whole game. Puppy Palooza by Rock Ridge Games replaces bleeps with barks and a chance to create your own tunes. This is somewhat easier said than done and the controls will make anything other than playing Simon incr…

Review Two Lives Left By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Wheeler's Treasure Review

Wheeler's Treasure: Tasty Voodoo Entree by Two Lives Left is easily one of the more inspirational games available right now on the App Store. Rivaling what any other hand held has to offer, it's a unique game with an irresistibly charming art style and an addictive set of gameplay challenges that will draw you in. This is no simple virtual analogue or cluttered interface affair, it's all about how well you can arc your jumps with simple swipes. Advanced techniques will have you combin…

Review Disney By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Disney Fairies Fly Review

Fairies Fly is Disney's game tie-in for their new "Disney Fairies" franchise and in particular the release of their new direct-to-dvd/blu-ray movies. Centered around Tinkerbell and the fairies of Neverland, Fly is a basic side-scrolling arcade game that is directly aimed at the very youngest of audiences. After selecting the fairy of your choice, each level is easily completed by tilting the iPhone to move your fairy up or down avoiding obstacles such as storm clouds and angry insects…

Ravensword: The Fallen King Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Ravensword: The Fallen King Review

Many have tried before, but Chillingo has brought traditional Western 3D RPGs to the iPhone in a big way with Ravensword: The Fallen King. Ravensword combines traditional RPG elements with and a story focused gameplay system that tries to live up to games like The Witcher making it a stand out addition to iTunes and well worth checking out. At first the controls can feel a bit confusing as they combine on screen elements with on screen dragging to look around and select items or peopl…

Harry Potter: Spells Review

Review Warner Bros. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Harry Potter: Spells Review

Harry Potter: Spells is an amazing experience from Warner Brothers for the iPhone that is probably worth getting for the sheer nerd factor of having a wizard duel with your friends in real time. Complex gestures will translate into spells that will harm your opponent and protect you from danger, making dueling a match of wits and accuracy that will have you waving your iPhone around till your arm hurts. Spells are activated by holding the iPhone much like a wand, then holding your thu…

The Settlers Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
The Settlers Review

It would be easier to describe The Settlers for classic gamers by saying that this iPhone app is The Settlers IV and hasn't been sullied by the withering touch of Ubisoft. That's a good thing for everyone else because The Settlers by Gameloft represents the best this franchise ever had. Ostensibly being a real time strategy, the interface consists mostly of clicks and drags to select units and assign them targets - either to attack, defend or work. The main goal of The Settlers is to…

Crazy Chicken Deluxe - Grouse Hunting Review

Review Acmee GmbH By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Crazy Chicken Deluxe - Grouse Hunting Review

The duck-shoot is a classic arcade staple, one that evolved to using light-guns and complex animatronic vistas that rewarded your patience and accuracy with whacky antics. Crazy Chicken Deluxe - Grouse Hunting by Acmee is an iPhone light-gun shooter that rewards your ability to think laterally and shoot accurately with huge points and maybe even a chuckle or two. The controls are amazingly precise, with three available options to maximize your accuracy. Touching the screen will bring…

COMMAND & CONQUER™ RED ALERT™ Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
COMMAND & CONQUER™ RED ALERT™ Review

It's hard to believe that over thirteen years ago a new spin-off of Westwood Studio's popular Command & Conquer series was launched and is now available to play on iPhones. Red Alert is a time traveling RTS set before the events of the C&C games and this latest installment from Electronic Arts is set as a prequel to last year's release of Red Alert 3. After a handy tutorial level you'll be swinging your units around the map with ease. Interface buttons allow you to trigger spe…

DOOM Classic Review

Review id Software By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
DOOM Classic Review

1993. Bill Clinton was sworn into office; Monica Seles was stabbed by a crazy fan; and id Software released Doom, the first-person shooter that defined the 90s in gaming for its controversy, graphical excellence, multiplayer gaming and customization. Gaming has come a long way since those early days, but Doom is a game that will forever be imprinted in the memories of those who grew up in the 90s. Now the classic game is available for the iPhone, but does it hold up or is it just an at…

Coast Defense - Reloaded Review

Review GAMEHUNTER By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Coast Defense - Reloaded Review

It's easy to automatically get into a bad mood when faced with "yet another" castle defense style game, but it's nice to be surprised once in a while by a developer. Coast Defense by Elene Kim manages to breathe some life in to a genre that has suffered for its clones, which automatically makes this a game worth checking out. Coast Defense uses a combination of tilting to pan the screen, dragging a reticule to aim your shots on incoming troops and a trigger in the bottom corner. The r…

Rally Master Pro 3D (US) Review

Review FISHLABS By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Rally Master Pro 3D (US) Review

Sometimes big things really do come in small packages. It's a terrible cliche, but Rally Master Pro 3D by Fishlabs proves that you can make a game that looks good, plays good and most importantly of all is great fun. It does this without being so large an app that it takes half of your spare time to load, so you'll be in the thick of it before you know it. Rally Master takes a fairly standard approach to racers on the iPhone by utilizing an automatic accelerator and tilt-based steerin…

Alien Outpost Review

Review NewIsland Interactive By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Alien Outpost Review

Alien Outpost is a new defense game from NewIsland Interactive and their first app for the iphone. They've certainly chosen a hard genre to break in to and the only thing that really separates it from the pack is the method of dispatching enemies, but despite this it still remains a fun game to pick up and blast through. Now that defense games have really started to branch out, it's hard to define Alien Outpost as being generic, but the controls are fairly standard to those familiar t…

3D SFCave Review

Sunflat Games have been making their name releasing miniature games on the iPhone, most notably with their range of games in the Papi franchise. 3D SFCave is their first departure from the Papi games on the iPhone and while it may tickle the old-school bone of some gamers, it may be a little too spartan for everyone to enjoy. 3D SFCave is another high-score arcade game that comes in several variations varying from changing the controls to changing the challenge you face. Ultimately th…

Shrek Kart™ Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Shrek Kart™ Review

Gameloft have been fairly synonymous with quality games on the iPhone and even if some of their games haven't excited you, it's hard to deny that they're good at emulating popular games. Shrek Kart is no different, taking the Mario Kart formula and producing a fun go-kart experience for you and your friends to enjoy on the iPhone. Shrek and his pals are thrown around their whacky tracks through two different methods. Accelerometer tilt controls are the default for steering, but touch…
