Real Racing 3 (Worldwide Release) Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 4 months ago
Real Racing 3 (Worldwide Release) Review

Editor's Note: As of the 28th of February the game is live across the world. Updates to the game have resolved minor bugs, however most importantly at the time of this writing 'repairs' no longer take time to complete. You'll still be considerably out of pocket, but it will put you back on the road sooner after taking unavoidable damage (such as from a TSM-controlled AI driver). Despite this the core problem afflicting RR3's playability remains in-tact; the game is devoid of meaningful…

The Gods: Rebellion Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 4 months ago
The Gods: Rebellion Review

Brawlers of various incarnations have always found a home on the App Store. Their charm is simple: You get to punch/stab or otherwise beat up a near endless variety of foes over and over again. It's immediate and it's effective, and barring horrible controls you're going to get some sort of enjoyment out of it. The Gods: Rebellion follows the God of War formula, almost to the letter (albeit with a Chinese mythos instead of a Greek one) making it a familiar - if uninspired - experience…

Hell Yeah! Pocket Inferno Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 4 months ago
Hell Yeah! Pocket Inferno Review

At times I wonder if the incomplete release of a game is the result of hubris on the part of the developer, or a genuine lack of time to bring the pieces together. In any case, no matter how intriguing your idea may be, if it can't stand on its own two feet it's going to have a rough time in the hands of even the most casual of gamers. Hell Yeah! Pocket Inferno is SEGA and Polm Studio's attempt at boiling down the Console and PC release of 'Wrath of the Dead Rabbit', but instead of a g…

Purple Cape Launching Soon

News By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 4 months ago
Purple Cape Launching Soon

Josh Presseisen of Crescent Moon Games has let drop on his Twitter feed that Purple Cape by Last Moon Games will be launching in 'a few days'. We might take that as a release this Thursday the 28th, but until we have something more official, check out the trailer to this intriguing platformer. While I may have reservations about Platformers with 'physics' like the one demonstrated in the video (that is to say, Little Big Planet-esque), I can't help but be intrigued by the variety of power-ups, stage designs, and the way previously encountered obstacles are given novel twists. Consider us on the job when it comes to reviewing Purple Cape after it drops on the App Store!…

FAA's Free App of the Day: Impossible Pixel

We're working together with the team at Free App Alliance to highlight a great free app for you to check out everyday. Today's release is one we've just had a quick play of and while comaprisons are being made to League of Evil, I'd go so far as to say Impossible Pixel ramps up to quickly become almost Super Meat Boy-like in its brutality... and that's a good thing! "Impossible Pixel is a tough League of Evil-style platformer that features 90-odd bite-sized levels, all of which are filled with dangerous pits, spinning saws, and plenty of other terrifying hazards. Your aim, then, is to avoid all of these obstacles and successfully make it to the end of each stage in as fast a time as y…

Wide Sky (UPDATED: Ver. 1.3) Review

Review Marcus Eckert By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 5 months ago
Wide Sky (UPDATED: Ver. 1.3) Review

Review Update (21 Feb, 2013): Let it not be said that Marcus Eckert isn't listening to his audience. A recent update has overhauled Wide Sky with a seemingly minor, but drastically helpful quality-of-life update to the interface that proves to be the difference between sheer frustration and casual, mindless fun. An indicator on your hedgehog lets you keep track of where the rope will appear, and once latched on to a cloud you'll also receive a handy arrow pointing you in the direction…

Year Walk Review

Review Simogo By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 5 months ago
Year Walk Review

Isolation, loneliness, darkness, despair, and fear - such are the emotions exploited by thrillers and horror based titles, and Year Walk by Simogo is no exception. However, instead of relying on cheap thrills and spills or obscene violence like a teen-slasher, this title gently pushes you in to a world dripping with macabre portents, leading you deeper and deeper in to its dark and disturbing story. For a developer known for their upbeat titles, Year Walk makes for a surprising change…

FAA's Free App of the Day: Die Hard

We're working together with the team at Free App Alliance to highlight a great free app for you to check out everyday. "Surprisingly, this endless-runner (which is based on the recently released A Good Day to Die Hard movie) is pretty good. In it, you step into the shoes of John McClane's son and attempt to blast waves of Russian thugs in the face. Over and over again. Swipe upwards on your device's display, and you'll vault over any obstacles in your path. Swipe left or right, and you'll change lanes. You can also tap to fire your weapon and swipe downwards to replenish your ammo. Unfortunately, there's no 'Yippee-ki-yay' button." Download it now and get the best free apps every d…


Tapforss Review

Tapforss Review

There was a time when developers considered themselves almost in opposition of the player. It's a dynamic that creates an immediate level of conflict, but the hostility of a developer trying to 'screw you over' wore thin for some and for many others was entirely unwelcome. Tapforss is almost a return to this concept, albeit wrapped up in a cleanly presented time-trial title that manages to remain foreboding despite is colorful palette. As the name would suggest, Tapforss by Like A Cro…

Puzzle Restorer Review

Review Gavina Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 5 months ago
Puzzle Restorer Review

I've never been shy about telling people about one of my favorite iOS series', PathPix. It's something I enjoy on a purely personal level as it not only feels rewarding thanks to the images you create, but there's a zen-like flow to the puzzling. Puzzle Restorer by Gavina Games falls in the same category of pixel-filling, area-painting puzzlers, but with a fresh twist... you already know what you need to make. Players are handed a grid that they can swipe and create paths on - by star…

Rock Runners Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 5 months ago
Rock Runners Review

Where Rayman Jungle Run didn't hold back the punches even despite the utterly brain-dead single-touch controls it uses, Rock Runners by Recoil Games and Chillingo gives players a 'Get out of Jail' card in just about every pitfall and hazard it throws at you. However, where in other games this would remove the challenge and thus impetus for completing a level, Rock Runners retains a sense of flow and keeps throwing hazards at you. In a way, the safety net it provides for the player is…
