Airport Scanner Review

Review Kedlin Company By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Airport Scanner Review

Airport security get a bad rap. With the cost of airfare, and the stress of airports, the last thing people want is to wait in a long queue to have their belongings man-handled and their privacy violated. Still, there are those who wish to sneak dangerous things passed the x-ray sensors, and now through the fun of your iPhone and Airport Scanner, you can catch these hooligans out and bring them to justice. Security has to be balanced with efficiency however. For each plane of passenge…

Bug Assault Review

Bug Assault Review

It's all out insect war! Well actually the insects are pawns used in a skirmish between birds and squirrel but the game is called 'Bug Assault' for a reason. With a set amount of health, can you eliminate the approaching hostile bug swarms while protecting the ladybugs? With your trusty bug zapper at the ready, you'll soon find out. Bug Assault has an incredibly simple yet amazingly realized control scheme. Touch the screen with one index finger to create a zap point. Touching the scr…

Non Flying Soldiers Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Non Flying Soldiers Review

Just because you're a flightless bird doesn't mean your life is devoid of meaning. If Non Flying Soldiers teaches us anything, it's that with a little help you can be molded into a rough and tumble fighting unit. Unfortunately without that help you'll be walking into electrical currents, but no one said the plan was foolproof. Welcome to a game that revitalizes a puzzle concept not really seen since Lemmings. Each level consists of a miniature obstacle course and it's your goal to get…

The Bluecoats - North vs South Review

Review Microids By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
The Bluecoats - North vs South Review

The original game this remake is based on, 'North & South' was based on the Belgian comic book 'Les Tuniques Bleues', which was a humorous take on the American Civil War. The Bluecoats – North vs South takes the “turn based strategy laden with mini-games” concept, updates the graphics and smooths over the whole experience. With a fresh coat of paint and some tinkering, how does this gaming classic hold up? Well the game starts at the options screen in which you c…

Robbery Bob™ Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Robbery Bob™ Review

When being broken out of jail by a mysterious benefactor, I guess it only stands to reason that you'd be indebted to this person, even if he wishes you to perform the tasks that got you sent to the slammer in the first place. Unfortunately as Robbery Bob unfolds, you find this benefactor to be more and more unhinged, sending you into harm's way for increasingly baffling use of your ninja like pilfering skills. This is a game of stealth and steely resolve. Each level consists of a goal…

Acme Planetary Defense Review

Review Taptoon Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Acme Planetary Defense Review

When you stop and think about it for a moment, we humans must be colossal jerks. There's really no other reason that in so many games, TV shows and movies, our homeworld is under attack by a hostile alien force. Oh sure in Acme Planetary Defense, most of your time is spent knocking asteroids out of existence, but we're pretty sure that those asteroids are being lobbed by aliens. Not only cause nuclear missiles accompany them, but sometimes they rock up to pelt us with lasers, or just t…

Pinch Peeps Review

Review Everplay By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Pinch Peeps Review

Simple can often mean better, especially with the iPhone's unique strengths when it comes to control schemes. Pinch Peeps is not what we would call a puzzle game, but more a hand-eye coordination tool for younger gamers, where the goal is to use your thumb and finger to pair up cute and colorful creatures for your place on the high score leaderboards. There are two game modes available; timed, and endless. In timed mode the goal is to create as many pairs as fast as possible to stay t…

Gene Effect Review

Review Lightstorm3D By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Gene Effect Review

Exploration is one of those aspects of games that can add so much to an experience. Maybe it's hard wired within us as humans, but part of what makes new game worlds so enticing is to map out and explore all their nooks and crannies, familiarizing ourselves with their landscapes, denizens, and secrets. Gene Effect has us ore mining on a distant world, surrounded by mysterious caves full of precious ore, but also strange plants, animals, and plenty to discover. The game starts off with…

Penny Time Review

Penny Time Review

Licensed games, whether they be for a movie, TV show, book, or a brand always make gamers raise their eyebrows with caution. It's not the idea of marketing tie-ins, but more that in about ninety five percent of cases, these games are absolutely terrible. Isn't it funny then that when a brand spends the time and effort to make a truly engaging game, the idea of the brand tie-in seems almost quaint? That's exactly what we have here with Penny Skateboards, and their game Penny Time. Anyo…

Dummy Defense Review

Review Jundroo, LLC By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Dummy Defense Review

Back in the early 2000s there was a game called Bridge Builder, where you had to use a finite amount of resources to build a bridge like structure stable enough to support the train that would be crossing it. It was a fun and mentally taxing puzzle game, and the last twelve years or so have shown the concept revisited in various forms. Dummy Defense is the latest, but as the name suggests, this is about creating structures more to protect, rather than just support (though there is some…

Frenzy Pop Review

Review S A Zahir By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Frenzy Pop Review

Frenzy Pop is a lot to drink in. In this review we're going to see what bubbles under the surface and if there's a great platformer here or if the whole thing just fizzes out. Continuing with these puns would definitely be the last straw so let's have a look at this soda themed game. The levels are what one may call snack sized. You need to get to the vending machine at the end as quickly as possible. The speed in which you reach it signifies whether you get a bronze, silver, or gold…

Rusty Orb Review

Review Orator Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Rusty Orb Review

Mining gems seems like a lucrative yet dangerous occupation, especially if said gems are deep in hazardous caverns, and the means of collection is a bionic arm that seems to have a mind of its own. Welcome to the world of Rusty Orb. The goal of each level is to use your bionic arm to latch onto the gems, and return them to the appropriately colored gem collection units. They aren't always out in the open however. Often the gems will be under rock or behind chunks of debris, and your a…

Ski Safari Review

Review Defiant Development By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Ski Safari Review

If there's one memory that Ski Safari conjurers up, it's falling over in compromising positions. That was always the most perplexing part of learning to ski; having your legs sticking out in angles you thought an impossibility. Aside from the unintentional yoga, this game has you fleeing from an avalanche and interacting with all manner of birds and even a yeti (cause what self respecting ski game doesn't include a yeti). The yeti however is not meant to be feared and avoided like oth…

Saving Private Sheep 2 Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Saving Private Sheep 2 Review

Wolves eat sheep. Everybody knows this, but did you know that a well placed porcupine will cause a wolf to cough that sheep right back up no worse for wear? A sheepish general observed by luck this phenomenon and now armed with this knowledge, a platoon of sheep soldiers, slingshots, and a load of porcupines dedicated to the cause, it's time to wage war on the wolves and rescue as many wooly brethren as possible. In the vein of Angry Birds and the countless other games in the physics…

Wacoon Jump! - Super Land Platformer Review

Review Yannick Berthier By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Wacoon Jump! - Super Land Platformer Review

The heyday of the platformer was the 16-bit era of the early 90s. At this time many games tried to emulate the success of those on top of the genre, but few really came close to understanding what made the Marios and Sonics work so well. Lately on the iPhone we've seen a small resurgence of the 2d platformer, and Wawa Land is the latest entry. What we have here is a game that has a lot of great ideas wrapped in good presentation. Why are these good ideas you ask? Well because most of t…
