Hitman GO Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Alex Beech, 1 day, 1 hour ago
Hitman GO Review

Hitman GO is not the game fans of the series might expect. Rather than take the form of a standard third-person action game, Hitman GO plays out like a strategic board game. You begin by selecting a contract. Each of these mission play out on their own uniquely styled board. The settings range from a country club setting to more industrial locations, each with their own tile sets and enemy types. The goal is to guide Agent 47’s through the grid-based play area to his…

Devious Dungeon Review

Review Ravenous Games Inc. By Alex Beech, 1 month, 1 week ago
Devious Dungeon Review

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. If this is true then last year's PC roguelike, Rogue Legacy, must be feeling pretty good about now, because Ravenous Games's new title, Devious Dungeon, borrows heavily from it. Both titles see you venturing through an ever-changing dungeon to defeat a reawakened evil. Success requires precision platforming skills, and a healthy dose of procedurally-generated luck. It is this combination of chance and challenge that makes the game…

Autumn Dynasty Warlords Review

Review Touch Dimensions By Alex Beech, 1 month, 2 weeks ago
Autumn Dynasty Warlords Review

There is a fine balance in strategy games between accessibility and depth. Make a game too easy and it won't hold your attention. Make it too deep and it becomes impenetrable to all but the most dedicated fans. Autumn Dynasty Warlords, from Touch Dimensions, strikes this balance perfectly. This is a particularly impressive feat, as even with the tutorial turned on, the game does little to hold your hand. Bar a few brief messages outlining the basic mechanics and interface, it leaves i…

Bug Heroes 2 Review

Review Foursaken Media By Alex Beech, 1 month, 3 weeks ago
Bug Heroes 2 Review

While marshalling an army of insects may not be the Pentagon's idea of a winning combat strategy, it proves surprisingly effective - and entertaining - in the third-person multiplayer battler Bug Heroes 2. The premise of the game is straightforward: lead a two-man squad of tiny gun-toting insects into battle against approaching hordes of equally insectoid enemies. Before starting your first game, you randomly select a squad of two from the roster of 25 bugs, each of which have unique…

FINAL FANTASY VI Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By James Gilmour, 1 month, 4 weeks ago
FINAL FANTASY VI Review

In a world where magic no longer exists, a girl with hidden powers awakes. Pursued by enemies who would use her ancient skills for evil, she unites with a band of rebels, and finds herself fighting for her life - and the fate of the world - against the tyrannical reign of the Empire. So much has been written about Final Fantasy VI over the years that it's difficult to avoid retreading old ground when discussing it. However, considering its one of the most highly regarded RPGs ever mad…

Bloodstroke Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Alex Beech, 2 months ago
Bloodstroke Review

Doves, blood, and excessive violenge - director John Woo's fingerprints are all over Bloodstroke. But, while at first glance this new game from Chillingo seems to be relying on the famous director's name and a distinct visual style, it actually adds a lot of interesting twists of its own to the top-down shooter formula. Perhaps the most striking thing about Bloodstroke is its handsome watercolour visuals. This powerful art style uses strong black brush strokes on a white bac…

Threes! Review

Review Sirvo LLC By Alex Beech, 2 months ago
Threes! Review

When we first fired up Threes!, we admit that we weren't quite prepared for the charm offensive we were about to receive. A quick tutorial shows you the basics. To play, you must swipe a group of tiles up, down, left, or right across a 4x4 grid. Pushing a 1 tile against a 2 tile creates a 3 tile. But from there tiles only combine with tiles bearing a matching number - 3 tiles combine with other 3 tiles into 6 tiles, 6s into 12s, and so on. The aim  of the game is to combine…

LYNE Review

Review Thomas Bowker By Alex Beech, 3 months ago
LYNE Review

One of the keys to a good puzzle game is creating something that feels new, but also has an air of familiarity. It is a feat rooted in simple and intuitive design, a form which conjures the thought that, surely, someone must have had the idea already. Thomas Bowker's LYNE does exactly this. And, no matter how hard we wrack our brains, we can't think of another game that does what it does. Or, at least, none that do it as well. As the name suggests, the simple goal of LYNE is to…

Joe Danger Infinity Review

Review Hello Games By James Gilmour, 3 months, 1 week ago
Joe Danger Infinity Review

Joe Danger was one of those games that leapt effortlessly from the console realm, and managed to land perfectly on the mobile platform. The sequel, Joe Danger Infinity, reminds us precisely why we loved the first game, and gives us a generous selection of meticulously designed levels, colourful characters, and new vehicles to discover. Rather than assuming control of Joe himself, the sequel has you taking charge of a Joe Danger action figure. Given his diminutive proportions, the full…

The Room Two iPad Review

The Room Two iPad Review

There were few games released last year so perfectly tailored to touchscreen as The Room. Like the mysterious wooden box at the heart of the experience, the game was beautiful, intricate, tactile, and full of secrets. With The Room Two, Fireproof Games has opened the door, both literally and metaphorically, to another dimension of gameplay. Instead of making you focus your sleuthing skills on a single puzzle box, The Room Two has you flitting between numerous contraptions at once. And…

Deemo Review

Review Rayark Inc. By Dave Flodine, 4 months, 4 weeks ago
Deemo Review

It's been a while since gamers fell out of love with rhythm games. This was mostly due to the over-saturation of rock music sims driven by plastic guitars, but also because of lack of creativity in the games themselves. Deemo does its best to address these issues by not only providing feedback as you tap and slide, but also presenting a fantasy through the melding of music and haunting artwork. The story, such as it is, tells the melancholic tale of a lonely creature who finds the co…

Tilt to Live 2: Redonkulous Review

Review One Man Left By Dave Flodine, 5 months ago
Tilt to Live 2: Redonkulous Review

Tilt to Live 2 is subtitled 'Redonkulous'. This is quite a boast, especially considering the first Tilt to Live became pretty crazy over the years thanks to a series of bar-raising updates. So, given the twitch-based insanity of the original, could this sequel be that much crazier? The answer is a resounding 'yes'. Those who have played the original should feel right at home with Tilt to Live 2. As before, you must tilt your iDevice to move a tiny arrow around the screen, avoidin…

Sorcery! 2 Review

Review inkle By James Gilmour, 5 months ago
Sorcery! 2 Review

Part two of Steve Jackson's Sorcery! series has no time for altruism. If anything, the second chapter of Inkle's interactive repurposing of the '80s gamebook series is openly contemptuous of do-gooders. I'm exploring the cityport of Khare, wandering through its cruel streets trying to reach the North Gate, and continue my quest to retrieve the Crown of Kings. The interface from the first chapter is back, complete with its handsome 3D map, alphabetical spellcasting system, and turn-bas…

Rayman Fiesta Run Review

Review Ubisoft By James Gilmour, 5 months, 1 week ago
Rayman Fiesta Run Review

Rayman Jungle Run is a hard act to follow. With its dazzling visuals, tight-as-a-drum controls, and endlessly inventive levels, it set the standard for auto-runners on iOS. For the inevitable sequel, Rayman Fiesta Run, Ubisoft has pulled Rayman out of the trees and into the kitchen - or should that be 'la cocina'. You see, this sequel is all about food - specifically, Mexican food. Every aspect of every level has a distinctly Latin flavour. You'll smash pinatas and swing from da…

Anomaly 2 Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By James Gilmour, 5 months, 2 weeks ago
Anomaly 2 Review

When Anomaly Warzone Earth rolled onto the App Store two years ago, it made a big impact. Not only did it popularise the now well-established tower offense genre, it proved you could port high-quality PC releases to the App Store without compromising too much functionality. Anomaly 2, the first true sequel after the Anomaly Korea expansion, brings back the futuristic sci-fi warfare that made the original game so popular, and adds just enough bells and whistles to warrant you giving th…
