PGA Golo Golf Dice Review

Review Pick Up And Play By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 3 months ago
PGA Golo Golf Dice Review

PGA Golo Golf Dice is the iPhone's portal to PGA.com's online version of the table-top dice game of the same name. For a game that relies on something as simple as rolling dice it's a remarkably complex game of luck and strategy. There's little to the controls with the dice being shaken each round or rolled out at the touch of a button. The interface serves more as a method of tracking your progress, so there's little room for complexity here. Despite only being a game played with di…

Lifeboat Review

Review Fuel Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 3 months ago
Lifeboat Review

If someone asked you to balance a dinner plate on your hand; then placed a bunch of marbles that have their own individual take on the concept of gravity on the plate; then they asked you to kindly manage to balance the plate in just the right way to cause them to fall in to pockets on the side of the plate; you'd have a fair idea of what to expect with Lifeboat by Fuel Games. As the captain of the boat it's your duty to roll the ship's deck around to assist your oddly rotund set of p…

Chewie Chu Review

Review Ludigames By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 3 months ago
Chewie Chu Review

Chewie Chu, published by Ludigames, is a well presented and interesting action puzzle platformer that challenges players with timed levels and physics based solutions - but there's no escaping the fact that it is also a very frustrating game to play. Your aim is to unlock the exit by moving your worm via slingshot from wherever he's currently anchored into switches, edible bugs etc. A lot of time and patience needs to be given to learning the controls (despite being fairly easy to pic…

Ric Rococo: International Art Thief Review

Review Honeyslug Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 3 months ago
Ric Rococo: International Art Thief Review

Ric Rococo: International Art Thief isn't just a fun stealth, puzzle platformer, it's stylish; and why shouldn't it when it features some of the world's greatest artwork. This is developer Honeyslug's first entry on to the iPhone and it's a steal on the app store. Your objective is to claim as much of the artwork as possible by passing it to your sexy partner in crime through windows in a limited space of time. The controls have been minimized, with the major controls requiring you to…

Townrs Defender Review

Review Prophetic Sky By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 3 months ago
Townrs Defender Review

Townrs Defender is a bit of a unique butterfly at the moment for the iPhone as it's the first to bring the often forgotten "third" variety of the defense genre, the hero defense. While other companies duke it out to claim the top spots in castle and tower defense, Prophetic Sky has set the standard for future hero defense games. Movement around the screen is made with taps, but a lack of pathing logic means you'll be tapping a lot to move accurately. Attacking comes in four major vari…

Virtual Horse Racing 3D Review

Review Natenai Ariyatrakool By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 3 months ago
Virtual Horse Racing 3D Review

Virtual Horse Racing 3D by Natenai Ariyatrakool is a niche title that puts you in the place of a punter on the race track, making bets and watching a race in real time. This game is a simple time-waster affair, with players placing bets between racers in various amounts. Regular punters will find this to be a fairly simple but informative interface, but there's little complication to the touch elements used. One of the main features of the game is the real time races that occur after…

Wild Wild Train Review

Review Promo Ideas, LLC. By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 3 months ago
Wild Wild Train Review

Model train hobbyists would understand that there's a certain poetry to getting their trains to run on time. In particular, getting all of the trains on their stretch of track to smoothly and without delay manage complex paths without creating collisions is sometimes frighteningly hard. This is where Wild Wild Train by Promo Ideas steps in and creates a puzzle game that by its very nature will always be harder than it looks. Managing your trains involves several steps; Firstly you can…

Space Invaders Infinity Gene Review

Review TAITO Corporation By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 4 months ago
Space Invaders Infinity Gene Review

You'd be forgiven for thinking that this game was just another attempt to return to a classic game and just give it a new twist, because you'd be wrong. Space Invaders Infinity Gene by Taito isn't just a rehash of an old game, it's a new game all in itself. Taito may have arguably started the popular trend for shoot-em-ups and Infinity Gene is almost like watching the genre come full circle. Instead of opting for tilt-controls to free the screen entirely, Infinity Gene allows a player…

The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition Review

Review LucasArts By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 4 months ago
The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition Review

Have you ever found yourself stranded on the high sea with a mutinous crew and nothing but a strange voodoo recipe to escape a tricky predicament? If so you're probably already familiar with LucasArt's classic adventure The Secret of Monkey Island. For those of you who aren't so familiar, this remastering of a legendary series will have you swilling Grog and stealing idols in no time. Sadly little has changed in the way of controls since the game was first released in 1990. Much of th…

The Donkey Test Review

Review Soonio Productions By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 4 months ago
The Donkey Test Review

Amongst the pantheon of puzzle types out there, nothing would have to be as frustrating and intriguing as the logic puzzle. Donkey by Soonio Productions turns logic puzzles into a sort of serial torture that you can't help but want to beat, and like Sisyphus rolling his stone you'll beat your brow coming back for more time and again. All you need to play Donkey is a calm mind and a light touch. All the puzzles require you to touch the correct answers (as they're presented) in order to…

BoXiKoN Review

Review Paul Burkey By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 4 months ago
BoXiKoN Review

Boxikon by Paul Burkey is an odd puzzle game, but that's not a bad thing at all when you're attempting to cram 74 different shape combinations in to a grid to score some points. Available for several years on PC and Mac, the iPhone version is a polished arcade puzzle game and delivers a Tetris come Bejeweled style of gameplay that's almost immediately addictive. Boxikon uses a drag and drop system that utilises a second finger to rotate the piece currently selected. While this can be…

SurrounDEAD - EP3: Barrels go BOOM! Review

Review Handheld Games Corp. By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 4 months ago
SurrounDEAD - EP3: Barrels go BOOM! Review

Have you ever pondered how you'd manage as a lone survivor against an ever increasing horde of incoming zombies while deciding to camp out in the middle of a road? Then SurrounDEAD has you covered, but even for those without such an elaborate fantasy this app by Handheld Games still remains an enjoyable rail shooter. You'll have three options of moving your character around 360 degrees, either by tilting, using a slide button or for those with a 3GS you can literally turn around using…

20Q™ Mind Reader Review

Review Digital Chocolate, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 4 months ago
20Q™ Mind Reader Review

There's a perverse pleasure to be had in pitting a human mind against a fake one and 20Q Mind Reader by Digital Chocolate takes the classic game of "20 Questions" to the next entertaining level. Users are invited to play against the virtual mind reader while correctly answering its questions, but attempting to stump the AI can be just as fun as playing along. No virtual mind is bound to be perfect and this one proves to have its weaknesses. The AI was boggled by thinking of a "speed l…

TriDefense Review

Review Kalio Ltda. By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 4 months ago
TriDefense Review

Tower and castle defense is a genre that continues to explode on the iPhone thanks to its intuitive touch interface, so there's little room for any new games that bring nothing exciting or new to the genre. TriDefense by Kalio fails to be an outstanding product amongst others available on iTunes, but does bring a mechanic that may tip fans of the genre over. TriDefense has learned well from its predecessors and has implemented a fairly fool-proof system of dropping, finalising and upg…

Asphalt 4: Elite Racing Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 4 months ago
Asphalt 4: Elite Racing Review

Gameloft have consistently put out a high level of effort into their iPhone applications, but Asphalt 4: Elite Racing takes the cake. With console-like production values and license deals from car manufacturers, it's every bit the game that should appeal to a mainstream gaming crowd and even its flaws will be forgiven when you realize you're playing this game on your iPhone. As you'd expect, the controls have been well designed for this arcade-style racer, giving you the option of tap…
