Adventures of Poco Eco - Lost Sounds iPad Review

Review POSSIBLE GAMES Kft. By Harry Slater, 1 month, 3 weeks ago
Adventures of Poco Eco - Lost Sounds iPad Review

Poco Eco is one of those games that's not really that much of a game. It's stunning and chirpy, and features a mesmerising soundtrack. But is that enough to really recommend it? Harry from Pocket Gamer thinks so, and James agrees, mainly because he's reading Harry's review.…

Skylanders Trap Team™ iPad Review

Skylanders Trap Team™ iPad Review

Rather than try to make a spin-off, or a severely compromised portable version, Activision has made Skylanders Trap Team a full console quality experience. It's a sight to behold, and even though it practically requires the Portal be used with it at all times, it's a small price to pay. Watch the video above to hear the full review. Read the review transcript over on Pocket Gamer.…

The Room Two iPad Review

Review Fireproof Games By James Gilmour, 1 year, 5 months ago
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…

XCOM®: Enemy Unknown iPad Review

Review 2K By James Gilmour, 1 year, 11 months ago
XCOM®: Enemy Unknown iPad Review

The iOS version of XCOM: Enemy Unknown represents something of a gamble. Developer 2K China has spent time and money of porting last year’s console and PC strategy favourite to iPad and iPhone. This is no companion app – XCOM iOS is the real deal. Apart from some derezzed visuals and a slightly smaller map count, what you’re looking at is the complete XCOM experience in portable, touchscreen form. If you were abducted by aliens and missed the hype surrounding the gam…

Kingdom Rush Frontiers HD iPad Review

Review Ironhide S.A. By James Gilmour, 1 year, 11 months ago
Kingdom Rush Frontiers HD iPad Review

Sequels can be tricky. You have to give the fans more of what they loved the first time out, while adding enough new elements to warrant a second visit. It's doubly difficult when you're following an acclaimed title like tower defence titan Kingdom Rush. Luckily for us, developer Ironhide has kept its cool and delivered another top tier instalment to artillery-oriented action. The team hasn't deviated far from the original template, but considering the quality of the original, that's n…

Star Wars®: Knights of the Old Republic™ iPad Review

Review Aspyr Media, Inc. By James Gilmour, 1 year, 11 months ago
Star Wars®: Knights of the Old Republic™ iPad Review

In some circles, BioWare's Knights of the Old Republic is considered the finest Star Wars game ever devised. Released back in 2003, it successfully captured not only the action-adventure sensibilities of the source movies, but also the epic scope of the Star Wars universe. Not content to let the classic slide further into the past, developer Aspyr has ported the full game onto the iPad. Bar a few control tweaks, this iOS release is a near perfect recreation of the original Knights of…

Frozen Synapse iPad Review

What is a gamer ideally looking for when they're in the market for a strategy game? Are they looking for a lengthy campaign complete with engaging narrative?

Well you're in luck 'fictional gamer created for the sake of this review', because Frozen Synapse has got all those bases covered. Well perhaps not the engaging narrati…

Leviathan: Warships iPad Review

Leviathan: Warships iPad Review

Did anyone ever play any of the Combat Mission games? This question is being asked because if you have, you will immediately understand how the gameplay of Leviathan Warships by Paradox Interactive functions. While most strategy titles are put into sub-genres by whether their battles play out in real time or turn by turn, Leviathan Warships combines these by separating the turn based and real time play styles into a planning and execution phase. Unlike Combat Mission, the gameplay here…

Magicka iPad Review

Review Paradox Interactive By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
Magicka iPad Review

If you haven't had a chance to play one of the incredible Magicka titles from Paradox Interactive, this is a special kind of treat. It would have been too much to expect the game to have been brought over without any changes - it was a game very much reliant on its keyboard and mouse control setup - and so with the help of Ludosity, Magicka has been reborn as a 2D side-scrolling brawler. "SACRILIGE!" I hear you cry out, but your cries are in vain - the game you know has been kept in t…
