MADDEN NFL 10 by EA SPORTS Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 11 months ago
MADDEN NFL 10 by EA SPORTS Review

Lately, Electronic Arts have been the kind of company to take a bit of a risk by trying new publishing schemes that had been considered taboo by other major companies. Madden NFL 10 isn't just a watered down port of their football franchise, it's a full featured video game that almost defies belief in its depth. Plays are selected through the usual setup of slide and tap menus, but the plays themselves are something to behold. Once the ball is snapped, the player can quickly switch be…

Enigmo 2 Review

Review Pangea Software, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 12 months ago
Enigmo 2 Review

Enigmo 2 is Pangea Software's response to their already successful and critically aclaimed physics puzzle game Enigmo. In this offering Pangea has brought better graphics and even 3D world manipulation, but does that make it a better game? The first major hurdle players unfamiliar to Enigmo as a series will need to come to grips with is the set of controls available. Each of the earlier levels attempts to teach the physics and new features of the game, but forgets to let players get c…

Sir Revs-a-Lot Full Review

Review Smallrock Software, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 12 months ago
Sir Revs-a-Lot Full Review

Addictive mini-games should almost be a genre to themselves and Sir Revs-a-Lot by Smallrock Software qualifies. What may have started out as a small and fun little gaming experiment can quickly become a full-fledged bite-sized game that is without a doubt strangely appealing in its minimalism. Your miniature car is controlled on its impossible mystery tour through two possible methods. The default option allows you to touch the edges of the screen to move back and forth and a tilt opt…

Tumiki Fighters Review

Tumiki Fighters Review

Kenta Cho is a sort of buzzword name in the shoot'em up world of developers and has been well received for his inspirational and quirky design ideas. Tumiki Fighters on the iPhone is a port of his Katamari inspired shooter and while successful on other platforms it loses its charm here. At the heart of any good shooter is the agility of your fighter and this version of Tumiki Fighers is amazingly hard to control. The fighter is controlled by accelerometer tilting, which can be calibra…

Alive 4-ever Review

Alive 4-ever Review

You'd be forgiven if you read the title Alive 4-Ever (A4E), saw the App icon and thought, "Did someone port Left 4 Dead (L4D) to the iPhone?". It's hard to fault Meridian for jumping on to a hot game design concept like L4D and while there are many comparisons to be made, A4E is just about as perfect as it gets for action fans on the iPhone. The dual analogue controls are extremely responsive, which will save your behind as zombies quickly crowd around you. Other interactive elements…

LUXOR Review

LUXOR Review

They say that imitation is flattery, but when it comes to arcade marble-poppers LUXOR by MumboJumbo may not be an original concept, but this port to the iPhone is immediately fun and challenging; so what more could you ask for? There are three major schemes for controlling the marble-shooter, but sadly the two optional methods seem to exist more as a side-note, with neither one being practical for use. Your shooter can be smoothly dragged around the bottom of the screen, with vertical…

Solitaire Siege Review

Review BadBumble By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years ago
Solitaire Siege Review

Solitaire games are practically married to mobile phones. It's a partnership that makes sense as they're just digital versions of games almost everyone learns to play in one form or another. Solitaire Siege is BadBumble's take on Pyramid for the iPhone, adding new gameplay elements to keep the game interesting while also bundling the classic game and an arcade game as a bonus. As a simple card game, you only need to tap the cards on screen. This would be hard to mess up, but sometimes…

Bust-A-Move Review

Bust-A-Move Review

The classics of arcade gaming are definitely having their day in the sun with the iPhone and Puzzle Bobble by Taito is no exception. What was once a game that swallowed quarters wholesale in the arcade is now a game you can play at your own leisure on your iPhone and even against your friends. Gameplay revolves around popping different colored bubbles by hitting groups of three or more with a single shot. Puzzle Bobble give players two types of controls to aim their shots, keeping the…

Atlantis Sky Patrol Review

Atlantis Sky Patrol Review

It's hard not to get a little excited when you talk about Atlantis Sky Patrol (ASP), because it's such a good game that you'll want to show it off. ASP is Big Fish Game's response to the arcade marble-match genre and it's large, fun and amazingly hard to turn off. Unlike a lot of other similar games, there's only one control scheme available. In minimizing the controls, a lot more effort has gone in to ensuring its accuracy and usefulness. The ability to swap your current marble is ac…

KIL.A.TON Review

KIL.A.TON Review

From the ancient days of Artillery on the Apple II, to the popularization of Worms on multiple platforms, the turn-based tactical shooter has continued to be a genre that is not only fun, but combines strategy with just the right amount of luck to keep you on your toes. KIL.A.TON by Dot Matrix Interactive is a simple little sexy App that'll have you blasting your friends (or hapless foes) in style. Being more akin to the 1991 PC game Scorched Earth, KIL.A.TON uses only two major contr…

ORBITAL Review

ORBITAL Review

Orbital by bitforge is self described as a "one-thumb experience". Based on the popular award winning flash game Gimme Friction Baby by Wouter Visser, Orbital delivers a sexy and simple game that will have you hitting "replay" one too many times. Being true to its tag line, there's only one input required and that's a single finger capable of touching the screen. Players need to tap the screen in order to fire projectiles around the play area. These will subsequently balloon out and b…

Timeloop Review

Timeloop Review

Puzzle games have always tried to remain entertaining by introducing game mechanics that are simple to grasp, but eventually complex to execute. This keeps a game tantalisingly fun to play, while scratching your brain in all the right places. TimeLoop challenges players to think fourth-dimensionally as you use copies of yourself to rescue the professor from each puzzling room. Each room is navigated by your hapless robot called Nik by touching where he needs to go. This would sound ea…

Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor Review

Spider:  The Secret of Bryce Manor Review

It's a rare moment to come across a game on the iPhone that oozes style and addictive gameplay. It's even rarer for it to be the first publication of a new developer. Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor by Tiger Style has set the bar high for gaming on a mobile device with an action/adventure that ties elegant gameplay with a mature narrative and a slick artistic style. The main objective of the game is to feed your spider by creating geometric webs to capture insects, which is further…

Cooking Dash Deluxe Review

Cooking Dash Deluxe Review

Playfirst have made their mark on the iPhone with their time management games and Cooking Dash is their latest foray following their previous works, Diner Dash and Wedding Dash. This is by far one of best looking games they've produced and the gameplay shows how much Playfirst have grown since their earlier attempts. Like most time management games, it's a basic tap system to select objects in the play area to prepare or serve the food for your customers, which are seated by dragging…

Titanic: Hidden Expedition Review

Review Big Fish Games, Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 1 month ago
Titanic: Hidden Expedition Review

Where's Wally has come a long way and hidden object games are now almost a genre in their own right, with games by the dozen making use of cleverly hidden objects to tease their players. Titanic: Hidden Expedition by Big Fish Games is the first of four games in the Hidden Expedition series and will have you tearing your hair out as you try to find that one last object. You search for objects in each room scrolling and zooming the screen with a drag or a pinch, with items being selecte…
