Bubble in Paradise™ Review

Review Clickgamer.com By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Bubble in Paradise™ Review

With word games, there are generally two kinds. Your slow and steady searching for the best use of available letters before letting fly, and the fast paced create any word that pops into your head immediately before the timer runs down. Bubbles in Paradise is the latter with the addition of the letters themselves being in expanding bubbles that need to be popped as soon as possible, because the longer these letters stay on the screen, the larger the bubbles get, leaving less room for t…

Star Wars Pit Droids Review

Review Lucasfilm Ltd. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Star Wars Pit Droids Review

To coincide with the re-release of The Phantom Menace in 3d, it's obvious that Lucasfilm would release some game tie-ins. You know, usually average action adventure or racing games that reflect sequences or the plot of the movie. Your usual fare. To that end, it was rather surprising and encouraging to play Star Wars Pit Droids. Not only is it a rather decent licensed game, it's also a pretty simple puzzle game whose difficulty rises nicely until you're pulling your hair out wondering…

Spice Bandits Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Spice Bandits Review

In one of the more funny introductions to a game we've encountered in a while, Spice Bandits introduces the Spice Bandits, a galactic brand of pirates who plunder entire worlds in search of their precious addictive habit. Now they've set their sites on Earth. Most games would have you fight back the invading forces, but not this one. Do you have what it takes to help the pirates beat back Earth's defense force all in the name of spice? If so, please continue with the review. Once the…

Little Acorns Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Little Acorns Review

Little Acorns has a simple premise. Your family of squirrels has returned from an outing to discover that your acorn stash has been pinched by thieving raccoons! Knowing that one should never let a raccoon get away with this sort of thing, and as the head of your squirrely household, you must traverse across the years and seasons to re-obtain what is rightfully yours. This is what one might call a bite-sized platformer. Each level only takes a couple minutes to complete and is its own…

J-Werewolf: EP1 Review

Review Daniel Novais By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
J-Werewolf: EP1 Review

Female ninja Eileen is just minding her business jumping from rooftop to rooftop when a crowd gathers around a spaceship that has just descended. A enigmatic T-rex named Trex pops out and enlists Eileen to help him regain control of his flying saucer. From there it's a side scrolling trek through the ship, defeating enemies, exploring different zones, defeating bosses, and upgrading your abilities. Think a Metroid game with a more lighthearted feel. Eileen is controlled by on-screen b…

Monster Wars Review

Review Liv Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Monster Wars Review

Fans of Liv Games' previous head-to-head castle defense amalgamation Legendary Wars, should be happy about the release of Monster Wars. Less a sequel, and more a companion piece, in this title you take control of the monsters that have been slayed en masse in not only games of this genre but pretty much every fantasy game out there. It's time for revenge! While the majority of the gameplay is your standard castle vs castle game, there is more to think about than which low cost monster…

Gorilla Gondola Review

Review Electric Pixel Factory Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Gorilla Gondola Review

If the SNES Classic Donkey Kong Country has taught us anything, it's that an ape will go to any length for bananas. Even travel by hazardous ski lift apparently. In Gorilla Gondola you are enabling this Gorilla's banana habit as you travel through exotic locations, trying your hardest not to have his gondola smash on the rocks. How would he travel without it? The first thing you'll notice upon loading up Gorilla Gondola is the catchy beat pumping out over the menu screen. The second t…

Blot Review

Review Majestic Software By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Blot Review

A lot of the time it can be hard to be a fair when you see so many instances of the same game. The trick then becomes to look for the innovative or failing that, what the title has to offer in terms of fun. Blot is essentially Jetpack Joyride taking place on a student's school notebook full of sketches. It is this setting however that provides the angle for which reviewing yet another Jetpack Joyride clone can be tackled. You control a blot of ink weaving its way through the hazards o…

Zombie : The Rescue Review

Review GOGN Entertainment By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Zombie : The Rescue Review

Did anyone ever play the Commandos series? It was good at creating a lot of tense moments when you had to pick the right time to slip between guard patrols so as not to be noticed. Firemint brought that sense of timing and tension to the iPhone with Spy Mouse and now GOGN entertainment have added zombies to the mix with Zombie : The Rescue. Yep, it's the zombie apocalypse... again. There are hostages that need rescuing from the bloody brain biters but getting them to safety isn't the…

One Epic Game Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
One Epic Game Review

Hyperbole isn't usually something that we take videogames to task for. I mean there can be some backlash on failed promises and over-hyping of a game (just ask Peter Molyneux), but generally when a game describes itself as epic we all just kind of smile politely and carry on with whatever we're doing. This is how we felt when approaching One Epic Game. Attempting to throw many of the app store's overused gaming conventions in a blender to leave them open to satire, you play a hero who…

Dungeon Crawlers Review

Review Ayopa Games LLC By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Dungeon Crawlers Review

If you want to be taken seriously in the high risk, high reward profession of dungeon crawling, you're gonna have to have a unique skill to offer towards a group. That way when the turn based fighting breaks out, you're not only useful to the group, but indispensable as the battle continues along. You start off Dungeon Crawlers with three such out of work dungeon crawlers; a warrior, a mage, and a cleric. An innkeeper tasks you with clearing out his basement and from their its onward t…

Hello Copter Review

Review Sarcastic Hedgehog Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Hello Copter Review

Game association can be an interesting thing. Playing Hello Copter invokes images of the old PC game Lander (or Lunar Lander as it was sometimes known). Those who have played Lander and are watching this video review are probably wondering what we're on about. It all comes down to the controls. This is your standard control scheme of touch to go higher and release to drop down. So many games use this that it's become rather commonplace. Where Hello Copter differs is adding a large amo…

Triple Town Review

Review Spry Fox, LLC By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Triple Town Review

Additional Note From Dave - At the moment we currently don't have a system that provides reviewer based recommendations or thumbs up. Despite this, Triple Town has been considered a personal thumbs up from Dave Flodine, so take that as you will ;) Creating a truly addictive game is quite the balancing act. For starters, it has to be easy to pick up and play. After that, every move a player makes has to pour out possibilities, plus the need to make the next move, and the move after tha…

Sploosh Review

Review Spooky Moon Studio Limited By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Sploosh Review

Sometimes it's nice to leave the adrenaline pumping, high speed, obstacle avoiding, death defying games for a while and play something with a slower pace. What's more relaxing than the ambient sounds of running water? And what if you had control over that water, tilting your iPhone around to pour it into the seeds of flowers and roots of trees to rehydrate the land? Well that's where Sploosh comes in. It seems sometimes cacti get a little too greedy and suck up all the water, sending f…

Boy Loves Girl Review

Review Grubby Hands By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Boy Loves Girl Review

Often when a title seems like it could be classified an 'art game', a lot of the lack of polish and questionable gameplay mechanics are excused because of the overall experience it presents. These games usually divide as some players instantly click with what the game is revealing to them while others cannot get passed the poor execution. This makes the genre highly subjective and it almost always comes down to a 'love it or hate it' mentality, which is a real pickle for a reviewer. B…
