Devil's Attorney Review

Devil's Attorney Review

When we think of turn based RPG combat, our minds turn to the genres of fantasy and science-fiction. I mean every now and then, you get something like Earthbound, but for the most part, the RPG genre is locked into preconceived notions of what to expect. Then along comes Devil's Attorney, which takes turn based combat, and puts it into a courtroom, where you control the scumbag lawyer Max McMann, using every dirty trick in his arsenal to free your clients from the prosecution, and all…

App Wrap Up (Tuesday Edition, 23rd October 2012)

App Wrap Up (Tuesday Edition, 23rd October 2012)

Hey hey everyone! It's a Tuesday, and while we don't normally have an App Wrap Up today, my list of interesting games to showcase is bursting at the seams, so let's get started! As always, our impressions and choices are based solely on the trailers. Got it? Good. Let's go! Spectrum Run (Tobias Hagemann) Kind of cut from the same cloth as last week's reviewed Polara, this is an endless runner based on changing to the appropriate colour to make it through the obstacles. It adds an extra level of reaction based thinking to deal with and due to this, could turn into a great challenge or horrendous frustration.[App Store Link] Fruit Rocks (Ad Maiora Studio) Watching the trailer…


Falling...and Falling

Falling...and Falling

While a lot of games based on vertical movement have you jumping ever highwards, Freedom Fall has decided to travel in the other direction. Being released on the App Store sometime in mid-November, this gameplay and art style look good enough to make this an enjoyable experience. Of course looks can be decieving, but we'll wait till it's out to pass judgement. Here's the trailer.…


If Gaming is a meal, is this Finger Food?

If Gaming is a meal, is this Finger Food?

Ok, i admit that title was seriously lame, but you know what isn't? The look of the game this article is covering! Full recovery! Finger Tied is an iPad only game that's coming out this Thursday. It will cost $2.99 and is a game that be played by oneself or with others in a party environment. It's kind of a finger dexterity puzzler. What do I mean by that? Well the trailer more than explains.…

Well... I'm Intrigued

About Love, Hate, and the Other Ones is looking to be an interesting puzzle platformer with a lot of charm. It releases on October 23rd, and even after watching the trailer, I'm not too sure what to make of it, but as the heading of this piece says, I am most certainly intrigued. .…


Sometimes it's not so hip to be a Square

Sometimes it's not so hip to be a Square

Especially when the name of the game is Square Planet. Pending Apple approval, this will be out on October 19th, and is an artistically beautiful looking 2.5D platformer. Let's hope the gameplay matches up. Have a look at the trailer.…


Catch-22 Review

Review Mango Down! By Dave Flodine, 2 years ago
Catch-22 Review

It's very rarely the name of a game captures the entire spirit of the experience, but every now and then things work out that way. A catch 22 for those not in the know is kind of a 'damned if you do, damned if you don't' situation, where taking one course of action might have dire consequences, but then the other option really doesn't put you in that much better a position. Interesting that such a nerve wracking scenario translates to what can be described as a zen gaming experience.…

App Wrap Up (Weekend Edition, 15th October 2012)

App Wrap Up (Weekend Edition, 15th October 2012)

Hey Hey everybody! It's a Monday, my belly is bursting of fullness after eating far too much chinese food, and it's time for another edition of the App Wrap Up! As always, we've got some games to look at that may or may not be interesting and worth your time and money based off of their trailers. What goodies do I have in store for you today? Let's find out! Uehara Adventure (UeharaLabo) There's something very intriguing about this game. Perhaps it's playing as a kanji character, perhaps it's it reminding me a little of Syoban Action, perhaps it's the play on mechanics in different stages. This looks like it could be enjoyable for platformer fans, but at a $4.49 price point, it's pr…


QI's top 10 iPhone Games for September 2012

QI's top 10 iPhone Games for September 2012

While we're already off and running in the month of October, the QI list of the top games for September is up, so let us take a look at what that list contains. 1. Poker Tools 2. FIFA 13 3. God of Blades 4. Gingy5. Rayman Jungle Run6. Blast-A-Way7. Bad Piggies8. Crafty Creatures9. Pocket Trucks10. Linkie Now our top 3 isn't out just yet, but it'll be interesting to see if there are any match ups. I expect Bad Piggies to be mentioned, and maybe God of Blades or Rayman: Jungle Run. What i find kinda iffy though is that Poker Tools isn't even a game... it's an app to study the odds of poker hands. QI has seperate lists for games and apps in their top ten, so i do find this odd. Ah well, let…

App Wrap Up (Week Ending 12th October 2012)

Hey hey folks! It's the end of the week, and even though it's been a little while, it's time for another installment of the App Wrap Up! As always we're gonna have a look at some games that may be interesting based on their trailers. Whether they're worth your time and money, well that's for you to decide! Now let's move onward! Royal Revolt (flaregames GmbH) We've seen the reverse Tower Defence game done before, but this has such a nice art style and what looks to be some interesting upgrades that i think fans of the genre should give it a look. It is a free app, so there could be limitations designed around in-app purchases. The question is whether they hinder enjoyment of the gam…


Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin Review

Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin Review

2012 must be the year of the tentacle (which sounds like a great sequel to the famous Lucasarts adventure game). How else can you explain not one but two highly unique, and successful games based about an octopus’ numerous noodly appendages? Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin, made by Microsoft Studios, out of all unlikely developers is a tale of a lab created abomination named Lemmy, who is swallowed by his creator, the mad scientist Dr. Phluff (who has the head of a dolphin), and has…

I Always Kind Of Suspected it

Clumsy Cat is a game where as the house feline, you have to break as much stuff as possible. Not being a cat person, this type of action doesn't surprise me in the least. Have a look at the trailer to see what kind of hijinks are in store when the game is released on October 18th…


Zombies just in time for Halloween

Zombies just in time for Halloween

Yes it's another zombie game, but being released on October 25th right before Halloween at least makes it a zombie game coming out at an appropriate time. It's NY Zombies 2, and it's shaping up to be a half decent first person zombie killing experience judging from the gameplay trailer. At least you get to gun down the undead in a lot of famous New York landmarks.…

How many Double Entendres can you Stuff into a Game Trailer?

While the game Hairy Balls is already out, the accompanying trailer is just so full of face-palming innuendos that we had to post it here. It definitly has a lot of character and a confident sense of humour (although your millage may very here). The app is free to download and if you're looking for a new puzzle game, why not give it a try.…

Debut Gameplay Trailer for Badland

It's not often that the first visuals of a game can be impressive (after all, it's easy to quickly become jaded when dealing with so many games day in and day out), but after the first few seconds of this gameplay video for the upcoming Frogmind Games release Badland, i sat up and took notice. Let's hope that the gameplay remains as enticing as the atmosphere. As of now, there is no scheduled release date for the game, but we'll let you know when that changes.…
