Bridge Odyssey Review

Review Gameloft By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 6 months ago
Bridge Odyssey Review

Ladies and Gentlemen, the game is Bridge Odyssey and the developer is Gameloft; this time taking its prompts from the Playstation Network release Elefunk and iPhone game Moonlights. Players must try and safely guide their black outline animals across dangerous gaps and ravines by building bridges for them to cross. The simple ‘drag and place’ controls make the game very accessible to players of all ages. But make no mistake, the game can be deceivingly challenging; especia…

Decoder Ring Review

Review babaroga, llc. By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 6 months ago
Decoder Ring Review

Were you ever one of those kids who invented your own alphabet or language? If you were, then prepare to take an unexpected trip down memory lane. Decoder Ring is a crossword type puzzle game where players must decode the strange glyphs and symbols into letters to form words. You’ll use a small rotating decoder ring to match up symbols and letters in the puzzle. You’ll be given a few letters on the board to get you started and from there it’s a case of trial and erro…

METAL GEAR SOLID TOUCH (US) Review

METAL GEAR SOLID TOUCH (US) Review

Metal Gear Solid Touch gears up for big action without the hours of cut scenes players have come to expect from Hideo Kojima. Players take control of Old Snake as he must progress through the story of MGS4 in a number of small fire-fights. Snake must progress through each level by killing the designated number of enemies and avoiding as much damage as possible. Snake is holed up in a small trench like structure and pops out to fire when players tap and hold on the iPhone screen. By dr…

MonsterKill Review

Review Origin8 By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 7 months ago
MonsterKill Review

Monster Kill is a tower defence style game where players are matched against a slew of classic movie monsters as they try to smash through a small gate at the base of the level. Players will dispose of the creatures of the night using a number of different magic attacks that are cast using the unique touch screen controls.

Boom It Up! Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 7 months ago
Boom It Up! Review

Boom It Up! is a quick reflex arcade game where players must launch a cannon ball as high into the air as possible, much like the barrel shooting mini-games from the Donkey Kong Country series on the Super Nintendo. Obscure references aside, players must launch their cannon ball from one platform to another and blast as high as possible with the limited amount of balls. Players shoot their cannon balls by tapping on the screen and must time their shots correctly or risk crashing to th…

Onslaught from Space Review

Review Scatter Circuit By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 7 months ago
Onslaught from Space Review

While most iPhone games tend to get an edge on the competition by taking steps forward in regards to gameplay and presentation, Onslaught From Space takes steps backwards with its retro 80s arcade and early 3D console style presentation. Your goal is to survive waves of incoming enemies for as long as possible and various weapon power-ups will help you to do so. Players must destroy all incoming spaceships and other objects by adjusting and tilting their iPod to aim and tapping the sc…

Real Tennis Review

Review Gameloft By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 7 months ago
Real Tennis Review

Real Tennis 2009 is, as you’d guess from the title, a tennis game from developer Gameloft. However this is one of their more original titles as there is no one specific game they have cloned but more of the genre as a whole. Players jump onto the court and play a number of different modes in friendly competition. Movement is controlled by using the onscreen d-pad and you hit the ball by using the swing button. Players serve the ball by tilting the iPhone to the area you want to…

Defender Chronicles - Legend of The Desert King Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 7 months ago
Defender Chronicles - Legend of The Desert King Review

Just when you thought all Tower Defence games were the same, along comes Defender Chronicles to smack you upside the head with a dead goblin. Yes, the core gameplay is the same but certain changes have been made to break the repetitive nature of most TD games. Instead of placing towers ‘willy nilly’ on the map, players must co-ordinate towers along the specific build zones to make the most effective army possible. The upgrade and placement system is very straightforward as…

Starball - WARNING: Insanely Addictive Review

Starball - WARNING: Insanely Addictive Review

For those of you who didn’t have an excuse to twist and turn your iPhone around like a madman, then say hello to Starball, the tilt-controlled physics game. Players must roll their small ball around a game board, collecting stars to increase their highscore. However, the more stars you collect, the more dangerous red orbs appear to pop your ball, along with all of your hopes and dreams. Players will need to constantly adjust and change the direction of their ball by tilting thei…

Thirty One Review

Review Luke Campbell By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 7 months ago
Thirty One Review

Thrity One is a card drawing game that takes some of the rules of Blackjack and makes them its own. As you can probably guess, the player’s goal is to use their cards to total up a score of thirty one, or close enough to it. You’ll play against two AI opponents in a series of matches in hopes of earning the most coins by winning hands. Players are given three cards initially to play with. From here, you’ll have to decide to either take the card on the table or flip t…

Cell War Review

Review TipCat Mobile By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 7 months ago
Cell War Review

Cell War is a horizontal shooter much like R-Type and other arcade shooter games.

But fear not, the nano machine can be upgraded with powerful collectibles that will give those nasty germs a run for their money - or whatever germs exchange for goods and services. Players control the nano machine by tilting their iPhone to move, tapping on enemies to launch a power…

BloodyXmas Review

Review MADFINGER Games, a.s. By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 7 months ago
BloodyXmas Review

From the title alone, it’s safe to say that Bloody Xmas is not your usual happy Christmas game; unless of course you’re a serial killer. Either way, Bloody Xmas puts players in control of a badass reinvention of Santa as he must defend his workshop from thieving little creatures. So it’s up to you to dismember and cleave your way through the incoming waves of enemies so they don’t steal all of your presents. Santa is controlled by tapping and holding on the scr…

Review HallwayLight By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 7 months ago
Cubik Review

Cubik is a memory based game where players must clear away a large cluster of coloured shapes by gathering points in order to do so. Players earn points by tapping out different coloured sequences shown on screen. Players have control of the length of each sequence and more points are awarded the longer it is.
