Lili™ Review

Review BitMonster, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
Lili™ Review

If you’re one of the handful of people who If you’re one of the handful of people who missed out on hearing about Lili by BitMonster, then you’re in for a treat. There was absolutely no question of how beautiful this game was going to be as it not only sports the Unreal Engine, but those who made it are ex-Epic and quite familiar with how to use it. However, what really counts isn’t the presentation, but how it interacts with the gameplay - and on this score the…

Super Hexagon Review

Review Terry Cavanagh By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Super Hexagon Review

Sometimes the simplest titles can be the hardest to review. When there's depth, it can take a large paragraph or two to explain the mechanics at play, but on the opposite end, you may be clambering for anything to fill space. If it hasn't been given away yet, Super Hexagon by Terry Cavanagh of VVVVVV fame is a very simple game. One shouldn't take that as reason to overlook this title however, for we have a word for when simplicity meets quality, and that word is elegance. At the menu…

Avengers Initiative Review

Review Marvel Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
Avengers Initiative Review

With all the recent buzz of Unreal powered titles, you’d be forgiven for thinking Avengers Initiative is packing this powerful engine beneath its gorgeous exterior. You’d be wrong, though it’s one of the few things the title hasn’t borrowed from the inspirational Infinity Blade. From the swipe-based combat to the level-grinding repetition, it’s Chair Entertainment’s classic in a nutshell, but it’s the small details that help it to stand on its…

Blast-A-Way Review

Review Illusion Labs By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
Blast-A-Way Review

Illusion Labs are quickly working their way up my list of developers I can trust to provide fresh and compelling reasons to pick up an iOS device. Blast-A-Way is their latest release and you’re charged with the task of returning the young ‘boxies’ back to safety by blasting them free of the blocks they’re stuck inside. Those used to navigating touch-screen interfaces will appreciate the smart, casual simplicity of Blast-A-Way’s controls. Dragging one of t…

Michael Jackson The Experience Review

Review Ubisoft By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
Michael Jackson The Experience Review

Michael Jackson the Experience is indeed a well made game. With that said, there's a litmus test that needs to be applied before purchase. Do you have fond memories of growing up with Michael Jackson's pop music? If the answer is yes, then chances are you will enjoy yourself. If you're not a fan of the music, despite this being a solid rhythm game with impeccable presentation, we would recommend you look elsewhere. The game begins with a tutorial that really doesn't explain how the ga…

Mikey Shorts Review

Review BeaverTap Games, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Mikey Shorts Review

I almost feel sick of needing to make the point so often, but if you're going to make a platformer, you need to make the core gameplay (that is to say, running and jumping) feel good. In some cases it's a matter of responsiveness from the controls, and in others its anything from the physics to the character animations, but in Mikey Shorts by BeaverTap, none of these things are a problem. In fact you'd be forgiven for thinking someone from Rocketcat Games ran away with someone from Ra…

Bad Hotel Review

Review Lucky Frame By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Bad Hotel Review

It takes a certain kind of mad clarity to sit there and take the genre of 'Tower Defense' as literally as Bad Hotel does. Conceptually Lucky Frame's game is the same as it ever was - drop blocks as defenses against an onslaught of creatures bent on destroying your base, but this time around you're actually building the eponymous hotel, adding rooms to accommodate tourists and shoot down sentient clouds. I may have lost you on that last point. See, your task is simple - build a profita…

Horn™ Review

Horn™ Review

When Phosphor Games came out with The Dark Meadow they proved one thing in particular - they know how to craft a world from the ground up. Their latest release Horn comes to us care of casual gaming giant 'Zynga', but its a far cry from the time-sink cash grabs of the past, teleporting players to a world that melds adventuring classics like Zelda and Fable with the visual appeal of Team Ico's best, and ties it all together with Infinity Blade's slashing RPG-lite gameplay. In short, it'…

Mad Skills BMX Review

Review Turborilla By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Mad Skills BMX Review

One of the biggest hurdle to overcome when trying to create a competitive title such as Mad Skills BMX is in being able to make it approachable for casual players while still catering to the hardcore crowd. Turborilla's solution was an elegant one - focus on the flow of the controls and the feel of smoothly sailing through the air to nail that perfect landing, and newcomers or veterans alike will be hooked. Virtual controls are history in Mad Skill BMX and players can choose to either…

Alien Breed Review

Review Team17 Software Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Alien Breed Review

Sure, Alien Breed by Team17 may have been a bare-faced attempt at re-imagining the Aliens franchise as a top-down shooter, but if you never had a chance to experience the classic on an Amiga, you haven't lived. That last statement may be hyperbolic (just a tad), but players were subjected to claustrophobic corridors, quick-moving aliens that continued to appear seemingly out of nowhere and (best of all) had to deal with severely limited resources. The sense of fear and tension was ahea…

Tentacle Wars Review

Review FDG Entertainment By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
Tentacle Wars Review

Tentacle Wars isn't just content about giving us a fresh take on the real time strategy genre by taking place at the microscopic level, battling against invading cells. No, you also happen to be waging this war inside the body of an alien organism that takes its inspiration from the fever dreams of H.R. Giger. Based on the popular flash game, this mobile version brings a back and forth game of cellular conquest straight to your iPhone and iPad, where positioning and reinforcement are k…

Fieldrunners 2 Review

Fieldrunners 2 Review

When Fieldrunners by Subatomic Studios first launched, AppSpy wasn't even up and running. However, it was one of the very first to be reviewed and with good reason - Fieldrunners came to define the tower defense genre for touch devices, combining an open-layout system and grueling challenges that required players to design their mazes carefully to survive as long as possible. Almost four years in the making, the sequel finally hits, but with plenty of regular updates to the original a…

Tiny Wings HD Review

Tiny Wings HD Review

With so many auto-runners and endless titles attempting to pack in bigger environments, faster gameplay and deadlier enemies, the appearance of Tiny Wings by Andreas Illiger wasn't just a breath of fresh air, it was a complete game-changer. All of a sudden gamers had objectives to complete with tangible rewards and challenging achievements to attempt - the fact that you were playing as a bird with tiny wings that's unable to fly properly was the cute icing on the cake. Now almost a ye…

TheEndApp Review

TheEndApp Review

If you're going to jump on a bandwagon, you may as well go large or go home. The End by Goroid certainly goes above and beyond, keeping in-tact the basic free-running fun of games like Temple Run while pairing it with a light story and unlockable power-ups that are tied to your skill, not just your patience in slowly accumulating cash. As a survivor of the end-days of humanity, your primary job is one of setting up a camp in order to survive. Duct tape has become a valuable resource,…

Squids Wild West Review

Squids Wild West Review

The Game Bakers are crafty developers - while you could consider Squids Wild West a sequel of sorts, it acts more like an expansion to the first title, albeit jam-packed with content, new characters, mechanics and... well OK, it's a sequel, just without the usual tacked-on number. Carrying on from the end of Squids, Steev, Vahime, Sammo and the rest of the crew end up at Seawood and are trying to find more heroes in the quest to stop the black-ooze slowly infesting and changing the cr…
