BADLAND Review

Review Frogmind By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
BADLAND Review

If my arm was twisted and I had to describe BADLAND by Frogmind as quickly as possible, I'd describe it as a darker and even more disturbing take on the Lemmings concept, but with flying Furbies. It's not perfect, but game doesn't exactly jive with conventions as you throw caution to the wind and smash, stab, crush, and slice hundreds of clones in an attempt to reach the all-important exit tube. And you'll do it all with nothing more than a single finger. By tapping or holding, you'l…

Review Mighty Kingdom By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
Sorted! Review

Sorted! by Mighty Kingdom finds itself falling in to that niche category of time-wasters that can best be described as 'micro games'. If you've ever played a WarioWare game you'll know what I'm talking about - you're presented with a rapid-fire series of screens where you have to figure out and succeed at the 'game' placed before you in a matter of seconds. However, unlike WarioWare, Sorted! sticks to one game, and while it does vary things up, the game feels limited and lacks a hook t…

Ms. Splosion Man Review

Review Microsoft Corporation By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
Ms. Splosion Man Review

More and more these days we're seeing console and PC titles making their way to the App Store. However the most successful of these shape their title to fit the mold of the iOS platform, be it through unique controls to suit the touch-screen or a complete rework of its gameplay. Ms. Splosion Man takes the easier route of keeping things mostly unchanged, and while it does hurt the game in some ways, the manic platformer from Twisted Pixel Games remains a treat to play. If you took a bu…

Runaway: A Twist of Fate - Part 1 Review

Review Numeric Pipeline By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
Runaway: A Twist of Fate - Part 1 Review

Despite the Adventure genre going through a hay-day of sorts, there were many problems with the basic gameplay - notably, it was almost assumed that players understood the genre's many tropes. Supposedly, after what was called the 'Grandma Test', Telltale games revised how they approached teaching the player how to play their games and this has flowed through to each of their titles since then. Runaway: A Twist of Fate is the third in a series from Pendulo Studios, and unfortunately it…

Gameloft's Iron Man 3 - Releasing April 25th

Gameloft's Iron Man 3 - Releasing April 25th

It's easy to say we're liking the look of Gameloft's current titles. Old habits may die hard for a company like this, but we're willing to give praise where due - most recently with their release of Order & Chaos: Duels. Now we find ourselves in a similar situation with their upcoming movie tie-in for Iron Man 3; it's looking gorgeous and could potentially be very addictive if the combat is anything to go by. Instead of a rough-shod 3D brawler, players take the role of Tony Stark as he speeds along, shooting down enemies in his path in an After Burner-like target and fire system. Obviously we won't know more until closer to the release date of April 25th, but for now you can check out…

It's Easter!.. As If You've Forgotten

Apologies if things are a bit slow over the next few days - we're more than likely in a giant chocolate coma... a big, delicious, chocolate-y deep sleep. Anyway, that's our excuse for now and we'll have plenty (and I do mean that) to cover once we're back from our holiday. Enjoy the weekend!…


Magicka iPad Review

Review Paradox Interactive By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 8 months ago
Magicka iPad Review

If you haven't had a chance to play one of the incredible Magicka titles from Paradox Interactive, this is a special kind of treat. It would have been too much to expect the game to have been brought over without any changes - it was a game very much reliant on its keyboard and mouse control setup - and so with the help of Ludosity, Magicka has been reborn as a 2D side-scrolling brawler. "SACRILIGE!" I hear you cry out, but your cries are in vain - the game you know has been kept in t…

Dungeon Hearts iPad Review

Review Devolver Digital By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 8 months ago
Dungeon Hearts iPad Review

For a long while the three-match arcade puzzle mechanic concept slept in the back of the gaming consciousness, occasionally finding a sort of yawning, eye-squinting revival by being jammed in as an alternative to button mashing. Dungeon Hearts by Cube Roots and Devolver Digital could have easily slipped in to the same, rote (and boring) routine as those that have come before, but instead they offer an immediate and highly challenging experience. In a way you can think of Dungeon Heart…

Smash the Office Review

Review Tuokio Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 8 months ago
Smash the Office Review

If you've seen Office Space, then you'll know about its famous (or is that infamous?) printer smashing scene. It's a cathartic scene, especially if you've spent any extended amount of time in an office environment, but what if you could take things even further than the printer? Smash the Office isn't a title that seeks to ensconce players in a deep and thoughtful world. No, you get 60 seconds to smash up everything you can in an effort to score points and earn coins so you can do it a…

Star Wars Pinball Review

Review ZEN Studios Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 8 months ago
Star Wars Pinball Review

ZEN Studios are digital craftsmen of dream-like virtual pinball machines and the idea of them creating not just one, but three Star Wars themed tables was like a dream come true. While you could pick up these boards as DLC for ZEN Pinball, the standalone App gives you a chance to participate in a Rebel vs. Empire 'metagame', and I couldn't give up the opportunity to bring balance to the force... via the dark side. Your initial purchase will unlock Star Wars Episode V, with The Clone W…

Check Out Halfbrick's New Title - Fish Out Of Water

If you've been wondering what Halfbrick have been up to, the answer is: Fish Out Of Water. Your task, should you jump in to the gorgeous looking deeps, is to fling one of the many fish you have available and score as high as you can. The twist comes in each fish sporting unique properties that will help you to overcome the dynamically changing ocean. While the dolphin may be helpful in one situation, you may need 'The Brothers' to bounce over many smaller waves in a rough ocean, or skip them altogether with 'Micro' the whale. There are also incentives for playing with friends, including levelling up and earning temporary boosts to help you out. The game is should set you back $0.99, how…
