Doodle Jump Review

Review Lima Sky By Dave Flodine, 5 years, 1 month ago
Doodle Jump Review

Looking for a diversion on your iPhone? Well Doodle Jump might just be the game for you. Like the name suggests, you play a strange notebook doodle and your goal is to jump from platform to platform while avoiding other strange notebook doodles. The higher you jump, the higher your score. Very simple, yet very addictive. The controls are part of the reason for the addictiveness. You simply tilt the iPhone to jump from platform to platform, and if you wish to destory an enemy, tap the…

Tower Bloxx Deluxe 3D Review

Being an architect has never been so easy. In Tower Bloxx Deluxe 3D it's your job to construct high-rise towers as sturdy as you can. The towers are built floor by floor. If you land a floor perfectly, a combo starts, increasing population. This is important in build city mode, where tower placement adds to the game's complexity. Tower building is as easy as touching the screen to drop the next floor as it swings overhead. Different coloured towers hold different populations depending…

Knights Onrush Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 5 years, 1 month ago
Knights Onrush Review

Tower defense games have become a popular genre in the last few years. What happens when you combine one with touch controls? You get Knights Onrush. You have a castle. Waves of enemies attack it. Using your finger and defenses you can purchase and upgrade, how long can you hold out? The difference between this and other tower defense games though is that as the player, you get involved as well. Defending your castle is as easy as lifting a finger. The main control is flicking the onc…

Review id Software By Dave Flodine, 5 years, 1 month ago
DOOM Resurrection Review

First Person Shooters have had a bit of a shaky start on the iPhone. It seems no one can create a control scheme that suits the fast, frenetic action of the genre. Doom Resurrection has figured out one solution to the problem, have the game move your character for you, meaning that all the player has to worry about is destroying whatever is in their path. You are a marine, in a research base on Mars. An experiment has gone wrong and suddenly the complex is overrun by zombies and demon…
