Nanosaur 2 Review

Review Pangea Software, Inc. By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 7 months ago
Nanosaur 2 Review

Time travel is always a tricky issue. There are enough loop holes and technicalities that will disprove just about every single theory. But in Nanosaur 2, when gun wielding dinosaurs from the future are thrown into the mix, it’s safe to say that accuracy isn’t a key part of the game. Players control the Nanosaur and must travel back in time to retrieve a number of stolen dinosaur eggs and safely return them to the future. Movement is controlled by tilting the iPhone and we…

Guerrilla Bob Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 8 months ago
Guerrilla Bob Review

Guerrilla Bob is a fast paced twin stick shooter than sets up players for the same level of explosions and brainless carnage you’d expect from a Michael Bay film. Players take control of wise-cracking, moustache toting badass Guerrilla Bob as he makes his way on a long strewn trail of revenge, through countless enemy soldiers and empty machine gun shells. Players use the two on screen joysticks to control Bob’s movement and direction of fire, much like Minigore. In each le…
