Fantastic Contraption Review

Review inXile Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 5 months ago
Fantastic Contraption Review

Physics based games tend to make use of its physics in a fairly limited way, with puzzle elements that respond to movement and so on, but ultimately they're artificially limited so there's a finite amount of solutions. Fantastic Contraption does everything to defy this practice and challenges you to not merely complete levels, but to engineer utterly unique solutions to its problems. Your aim is to move a piece from one area in to a scoring zone by any means necessary using the tools…

Cheese Collect Review

Review Koh Jing Yu By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 5 months ago
Cheese Collect Review

Cheese Collect by Koh Jing Yu is an arcade puzzle game that pits you (the mouse) against your nemesis (the wily cat) as he moves his remote-control cheese around a minefield of traps. Despite the fairly uninspired name, Cheese Collect manages to be a surprisingly fun - if somewhat flawed - App for the iPhone. The interface is kept fairly simple with each turn allowing you to move your mouse in one of eight directions (up/down, left/right and diagonals). The touch controls here are a b…

DrawRace - Turbo Edition Review

Review Ubisoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 5 months ago
DrawRace - Turbo Edition Review

DrawRace by RedLynx is a fun spin on old school arcade racers like R.C. Pro-Am, Mario Kart and even the seminal Rock'N'Roll Racing. You'll find yourself drawing your way to victory against computer (and human) opponents as you strive for the perfect lap. There's not much to the game with almost all the controls given over to your car's AI. Each race begins by literally drawing the path that your car should take from beginning to end through all the laps required. This can be deceptive…

Synth Racing Review

Review Race to the Moon By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 5 months ago
Synth Racing Review

Synth Racing by Race to the Moon is a time-trial racing game that takes all the style and speed from Wipeout, but doesn't quite manage to live up to the game it takes its inspiration from. The aim of the game here is to reach your goal as quickly as possible. To reach the pinnacle of your potential speed you'll need to avoid these obstacles and collect speed-boosts, so you'll be happy to know that the tilt-controls used to slide your ship around the screen are almost flawless in their…

Lux DLX 2 Review

Review Sillysoft Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 5 months ago
Lux DLX 2 Review

Board games are a booming field for game developers on the iPhone and it's easy to see why, with the ability to essentially "pass the phone" between players you eliminate the fuss and hassle of setting up a game with dozens, if not hundreds of pieces. Lux DLX by Sillysoft Games attempts and succeeds at being a clone of the popular board game Risk while saving you from shifting around the extraordinary amount of tokens and dice required for each game. The game's controls are its only r…

Dragon Dollars Slots Review

Review 616 Digital LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 5 months ago
Dragon Dollars Slots Review

Dragon Dollars Slots by Pokie Magic is yet another entry in to the slot machine game category, bringing an Asian theme to slot fans. What makes this game stand out is the inclusion of two feature modes which will keep your busy as the reels keep spinning. Dragon Dollars uses a standard press and play setup, with bets ranging between $1-200 and all the features (barring a pay out) of a regular slot machine. The only other time you'll need to touch to play is during the roulette double…

Totem Treasure Slots Review

Review 616 Digital LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 5 months ago
Totem Treasure Slots Review

Totem Treasure Slots by Pokie Magic is a fantasy slot-machine app to add to the already large catalog of games in this genre. This is simulated gambling with more than a little bit of fantasy in its theme and its rewards, but it retains all the attractive qualities of a slots machine without the financial burden. Playing the game only requires touching the simulated buttons that are present on most real slot machines. At times you'll be prompted to participate in this game's Feature m…

Air Master 3D Review

Review Alex Nankervis By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 5 months ago
Air Master 3D Review

Flight sims on the iPhone have been a somewhat risky proposition because they live or die by their ability to control an aircraft fluidly while still being able to let a gamer see what's happening. Air Master 3D by Alex Nankervis doesn't manage to make the cut as a flight sim shoot-em-up for this reason even if there is a nugget of gold hidden within. Players will find themselves tilting their craft around their island zone, though despite some thorough customisation options for these…

Cooking Mama Review

Cooking Mama Review

For those of you who never got to experience the phenomenon that is Cooking Mama before now you're in for a surprise as the iPhone arguably trumps the Nintendo DS and Wii versions with this offering. Cooking Mama by Taito is a arcade style cooking simulator that is a must by for food-lovers and pocket gamers alike. In simulating a kitchen environment, players will find themselves swiping the screen to cut, tapping to julienne, tilting to grease up pans, shaking to sauté and a h…

Mega Hearts 2 Slots Review

Review 616 Digital LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 5 months ago
Mega Hearts 2 Slots Review

Mega Hearts 2 Slots by Pokie Magic may be a bit cutesy as a slot machine goes, but it's fun, visually bright and clear and features a surprisingly generous set of special features. Control is fairly limited, using simple buttons to control the entire game. It's possible to even allow the game to play independent of the player by using the "autoplay" feature, though that prevents players from accessing the gamble or roulette options available in Pokie Magic games. Roulette is controlle…

Mind Games 2 Review

Review Player X By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 5 months ago
Mind Games 2 Review

The brain training genre of games have often felt like a hodge-podge collection of mini games that combine puzzles and arcade elements, scoring you for the sake of progress. In other words, they were less about training and more about the challenge. Mind Games 2 may be a fairly simple offering compared to other brain training games, but this one feels like the real deal; your brain will feel the burn. Most games use a simple touch to select answers from the plethora of game modes, tho…

SCRABBLE Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 5 months ago
SCRABBLE Review

Scrabble is an iconic board game that has been around 1938, popularised in the 50's and is almost globally known in its gameplay. Simplicity reigns supreme in EA's release of Scrabble on the iPhone and you couldn't expect anything less from such a simple, yet challenging game. The letter tiles all use a simple drag and drop system for placement with the rest of the interface being responsive to simple touches. The iPhone has also been well considered by the use of a "Recall" button to…

Sonic the Hedgehog Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 5 months ago
Sonic the Hedgehog Review

Just about every mobile device has had an incarnation of this popular classic console game and there's no reason that SEGA shouldn't have brought it to the iPhone too. Iconic in its design and gameplay, the iPhone version of Sonic the Hedgehog 1 plays just as flawlessly as the Mega Drive version it's taken from. A digital d-pad is used to run, spin and jump Sonic around each of the levels and the response has to be played to be believed. A major flaw for almost every mobile port has b…

Bookworm Review

Review PopCap By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 5 months ago
Bookworm Review

It's hard to escape the occasional word based game on the iPhone. In fact it's incredibly hard to escape them. So when a company like Popcap makes a word game you can only hope it's not only fun, but it sets the standard for other developers. Bookworm is Popcap's flagship spelling game brought to the iPhone and the word is "good". Selecting words is as easy as tapping it out on the screen using the tiles presented, keeping each successive letter joined to the last. Like other spelling…

Sneezies Review

Review Retro Dreamer By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 5 months ago
Sneezies Review

Sneezies - Chain Reaction by Chillingo Ltd is a bubble popping arcade puzzle game with a difference - instead of lining up bubbles to pop, you let the Sneezies do the work for you with a single touch. It's another beautiful and relaxing game from one of the world's leading iPhone game publishers and it's a fun addition to anyone's collection. Your aim is to drop a single explosion of sneezing powder on the the screen which will set of a chain reaction of sneezes, hopefully freeing and…
