Ravensword: Shadowlands Review

Review Crescent Moon Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 8 months ago
Ravensword: Shadowlands Review

Sometimes I wonder, "Do I expect too much of games on my mobile phone?". It's a valid question as the platform is undoubtedly a novel one and prone to requiring many shortcuts to make traditional genres succeed. Whether it's something as obvious as the control issues inherent to the touch screen, or something less consider like trying to pack in as much action between text messages and phone calls, a developer's job is not an easy one. However, no matter where you fall on the issue, on…

Penny Arcade The Game: Gamers vs. Evil Review

Review Playdek, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
Penny Arcade The Game: Gamers vs. Evil Review

When you think 'Penny Arcade', you'll more than likely think about the online comic started by 'Gabe and Tycho'. The brand has almost become an institution that defines gaming for the world - irreverent, opinionated, but always willing to share a fun time with all who seek it. Based on the 2011 deck-building card game of the same name, 'Penny Arcade The Game: Gamers vs. Evil' brings together familiar elements of popular titles like Ascension and Dominion while also adding in a unique…

Anomaly Korea Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
Anomaly Korea Review

Although it's dubbed as the sequel to last year's smash-hit Anomaly Warzone Earth, 'Korea' is more of an expansion as it tacks on a handful of new features, along with a handful of stages to enjoy them in. Don't let that discourage you though - if anything it refreshes the franchise and pairs well with the detailed visual overhaul also included in this release. The name of the game is 'tower defense', but instead of defending yourself from waves of enemies with towers, you're defendin…

Pudding Monsters Review

Review ZeptoLab UK Limited By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
Pudding Monsters Review

After the incredible success of Cut the Rope, developer Zeptolab undoubtedly spent more than a moment wondering just how they'd follow it up. As it turns out, they've branched out in a new direction - albeit one still featuring sugary treats and three-star rated puzzlers - and players will have to flick and stick blobs of pudding together to create the ultimate Pudding Monster. In each stage the player is given a handful of puddings they can flick around the screen. As with similarly…

Monsters, Inc. Run Review

Review Disney By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
Monsters, Inc. Run Review

It was bound to happen - the freight train of Disney Interactive's mash-up of successful iOS franchises with their own properties has run in to a bit of a snag. Where previous titles managed to blend its inspirations up and come out with something new, 'Monsters, Inc. Run' opts to simply balance the freemium auto-runner to create something more akin to what the first title should have been. As such the best moments of this title match those of Mega Run by Get Set Games without much in…

METAL SLUG 1 Review

Review SNK PLAYMORE By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
METAL SLUG 1 Review

There's one thing that has held back previous releases of the METAL SLUG franchise on the iOS platform, and that one thing is simply its 'controls'. The games are, without question, just as amazing as they were in the arcades and the perfect fodder for gamers after a hardcore side-scrolling shooter, but games like this live and die by their controls and sadly SNK PLAYMORE has missed an opportunity to come up with a novel solution. If you've never played METAL SLUG, I thoroughly recomm…

Middle Manager of Justice Review

Middle Manager of Justice Review

When someone says their game is for free, there's always going to be a catch - either it's merely a demo for something larger, or there are multiple strings attached in an effort to guide you towards their In-App Purchase store. While the former is something we're used to, the latter is still a sore point for many gamers as developers often strip back their game, holding back gameplay behind artificial walls (often through extended waiting periods). Middle Manager of Justice by Double…

Fluxx Review

Review Playdek, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
Fluxx Review

To understand Fluxx by Playdek and Looney Labs you have to understand 'madness' itself. If you reach back to the days of your youth, there are undoubtedly examples of play time with friends where 'playing' was all that mattered - rules existed in a basic sense, but they were ever-changing and evolving, almost at random. Fluxx embodies this free-spirited insanity to create a card game that is never the same game each time you play it; in fact it's entirely different from round to round,…

Friday News Wrap -Up 14 December 2012

Friday News Wrap -Up 14 December 2012

Scratch today's delayed Wrap-Up to a literal run-in with another vehicle - yes, I was in an accident (and yes I'm OK), but things got a little crazy and I'm back on board for news-related funLets jump straight to the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 14th of December, 2012. Rovio Celebrates 3 Years of Angry BirdsTime, it seems, flies much like a bird (possibly an angry one) and Finnish developer Rovio can chalk up three years of delivering pig-smashing action to the iOS platform. In that time we've seen everything from the vanilla title, to 'Seasons', 'Rio', 'Space', 'Star Wars', and even a side-step with 'Bad Piggies'. It's only fitting that the upcoming Angry Birds animated film is headed up…


Zombies. Review

Review bignic By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
Zombies. Review

[This title was featured as the mini-review for the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 14th of December, 2012] You're a grunt crushed under the wheels of a large corporation working in their IT department, and suddenly, one day, you find out that the management have all turned in to zombies. It doesn't matter how or why, but by scavenging the building you'll find enough weapons to make your way to the exit, maybe save a few co-workers and blow up those damn printers that have always annoyed…

THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY Review

Square Enix certainly have rhythm game’s on their mind of late, but for a company that boasts so many classic songs, very few (if any) were exploited to drive droves of gamers to their welcoming bosom. Other titles may have featured composers that are now famous amongst the gaming community, but Theatrhythm features the songs that brought them to our attention - notably the large anthology of songs they’ve written for the Final Fantasy series. The core premise and executio…

Herd Herd Herd™ Deluxe Review

Review 2K By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
Herd Herd Herd™ Deluxe Review

Herd Herd Herd Deluxe is one of those games that aims to bridge the gap between young gamers and adults alike thanks to its smooth difficulty curve that plateaus at a high level. No punches are pulled, so you'll need to get your tap and drag on to help save the somewhat docile farm animals in your care. As mentioned, things ramp up quite slowly, and indeed it may feel like the game never really takes off as it drills new skills in to you with each stage, only to provide one or two gen…
