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…

Defender Chronicles - Legend of The Desert King Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 3 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…

OMG Pirates! Review

Review Mika Mobile, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
OMG Pirates! Review

From the developer that brought you mass zombie slaughter in Zombieville USA comes the next beat'em up action adventure from Mika Mobile, OMG Pirates. Slaughtering pirates en masse couldn't be more fun, but that doesn't mean it'll be easy. The controls are a simple affair, which not only gives Pirates an old school feel, but makes the game easier to deal with on the iPhone. You move your nimble ninja with a virtual analogue stick and jump, counter, combo and flip out with the aid of t…

Zen Bound™ Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Zen Bound™ Review

While the idea of rope bondage may invoke either images of tying down furniture in the back of a trailer; luggage on a roof; a boat to a moor; or even something more bedroom orientated, Zen Bound attempts to be a game that's more of an experience than something competitive. Contemplation and calm calculation are unsurprisingly key requirements to grasping and enjoying this beautiful app. Multiple gestures are combined with the accelerometer in order to twist and tie up a series of obj…

N.O.V.A. - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
N.O.V.A. - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance Review

Halo as a franchise was the start of a console revolution for the first person shooter. It combined well designed controls with a highly anticipated adventure story and amazing multiplayer paving the way for future FPSs. NOVA (Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance) may not be as epochal, but it has refined the genre for the iPhone in a way that can't be ignored. Veterans of FPSs will quickly adapt to the controls that are purpose built and well considered for touch screens. Of the three contro…

James Cameron's Avatar Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
James Cameron's Avatar Review

It's not surprising that a developer like Gameloft were brought in to bring to life James Cameron's Avatar for the iPhone. For a film that's already critically acclaimed, it was really only a matter of time for game tie-ins to appear. Gameloft takes care to approach this as something worth playing first and it shows in every aspect of the game itself. Avatar is an action platformer that practically smashes others in the genre. You take control through the use of virtual analogue stick…

Rise Of Lost Empires Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Rise Of Lost Empires Review

Rise Of Lost Empires by Gameloft is an amazingly fun fantasy inspired real time strategy game that features 20 campaigns with a fairly interesting - if not entirely inspired - story to drag you along that's supported by a brilliant adaption of the normal strategy controls for the iPhone. One of the great features includes the way in which normal soldiers are automatically "grouped" with your heroes when they're selected together with a two-finger box selection. This makes movement and…

Red Conquest! (Episodes 1 & 2!) Review

Review Cat in a Box Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Red Conquest! (Episodes 1 & 2!) Review

Cat in a Box Games is the other name for iPhone game creator John Kooistra and Red Conquest! is the latest installment in a series of games involving the continuing war of Red and Blue. Where previous installments covered arcade shooters from different angles, Red Conquest is a pure real time strategy (RTS) and a treat to play. There's a fairly steep learning curve for most casual players in most RTSs and the somewhat complex set of controls for Red Conquest keep that curve relatively…

Beneath a Steel Sky: Remastered Review

If you were one of those gamers who were patient enough to play ‘point and click’ adventure games over 10 or more floppy discs, then today is your lucky day. The widely acclaimed 1994 DOS release Beneath a Steel Sky has made its way onto the iPhone. This new port has been vastly improved from the original but maintains the key elements that made it a cult classic. The new control scheme uses the iPhones touch screen interface to interact with objects as you would a mouse.…
