Need for Speed™ Hot Pursuit Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Need for Speed™ Hot Pursuit Review

I know you can't see my face at the moment, but if you could you'd notice the burning hunger in my eyes, the small beads of sweat at the edges of my brow and possibly the gnawing of my lip as I attempt to concentrate while I write. I really want to get back to playing Need for Speed™ Hot Pursuit. After a few breaths and a drink of water I've calmed down and I realize that it's a shame the game only features tilt controls, however barring my own stupidity the game never really fa…

Baseball Superstars® 2011 Pro Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Baseball Superstars® 2011 Pro Review

Sometimes it can be lonely at the top, but the Baseball Superstars® series from GAMEVIL has earned its position of dominance thanks to its in-depth and detailed baseball gameplay that remains lighthearted despite the intense management required to succeed. Their third outing (BS2011) is no less of a beast in terms of content, but additional refinements to the gameplay show that GAMEVIL aren't interested in resting on their laurels. The controls for BS2011 haven't seen much of a ch…

Fragger Review

Review Miniclip.com By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Fragger Review

By popular demand (and because I can't believe AppSpy hasn't reviewed it already), I've finally delved the depths of Fragger by Miniclip and all we can say is that it's better to be late to the party then to never arrive. Fragger takes its own spin on the physics puzzler by challenging players to use their grenades in clever ways to bypass the defenses of their enemies. It's almost scary just how quickly I managed to slip in to and feel comfortable with the game's throwing controls. A…

Age of Zombies™ Review

Review Halfbrick Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Age of Zombies™ Review

Monster Dash was only the start of the adventures of Barry Steakfries and now devotees of his monster-stomping ways can blast through time and space in Halfbrick Studio's latest release, Age of Zombies. At first glance, the game couldn't seem more conventional as you blast away at zombies with a pistol loaded with infinite ammo and maneuver your barely shaven hero around the screen with twin-stick controls. But then the little details start to shine through and what should be just ano…

Linkoidz Review

Review Retro Dreamer By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Linkoidz Review

It's so easy to expect a new three-match title to be nothing more than an elaborate redesign of those that came before it and while it may be cynical to think this way, the upside is that when someone does do something new it tends to stand out like a sore thumb. Linkoidz by Retro Dreamer dispenses with mere gem swapping and players will need to rearrange the field by plucking orbs from the bottom and feeding them back up again in order to create vertical stacks of three or more that…

Phoenix Review

Review Firi Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Phoenix Review

UPDATE: Sometimes it only takes a small change to make a big impact and the updates released for Phoenix have made it a definite must-have for shooter fans; providing a polished level of skill-based gameplay that's appealing thanks to its dynamic difficulty system. Changes to the power-up system add a new layer of depth for hardcore gamers to master and at this point it's safe to say Phoenix is definitely focused on appealing to this crowd instead of a broader audience. With this in mi…

Galaxy on Fire 2™ Review

Review FISHLABS By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Galaxy on Fire 2™ Review

UPDATE (17th Feb, 2012): With update after update pushing Galaxy on Fire 2 further and further forward, there's no question that this title represents the best the platform has to offer in the Privateer-style of games currently available. From its numerous tweaks including visual overhauls and content updates (with Valkyrie), you'd be hard pressed to find a better example of the genre for handheld devices. As such a score deserving of these updates has now been awarded to Galaxy on Fir…

Samurai II: Vengeance Review

Review MADFINGER Games, a.s. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Samurai II: Vengeance Review

For some the first Samurai title from MADFINGER was a smash hit, for others it was a resounding dull thud, but love it or loathe it their latest release Samurai II: Vengeance builds upon this scrolling beat'em-up and takes it to new heights. The touch and swipe controls have been replaced with a much more familiar virtual stick and button system and players can combine short and long attacks to recreate the brutal combos from the original title. A dodge button gives your Samurai the a…

Star Battalion Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Star Battalion Review

It seems like the release of Apple's most recent iDevices has lit a fire underneath Gameloft and while not every recent release has been a winner it's hard not to be impressed by them. Star Battalion is their latest App Store release and it's hard to express how hard I've fallen for this space fighter pilot sim. Shades of classic Lucas Arts titles like X-Wing and Rogue Squadron along with other Nintendo classics like Star Fox are immediately recognizable in Star Battalion, but instead…

Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus Review

UPDATE: A severe bug seems to be affecting some players, resulting in their experience being reset to zero when leaving the multiplayer menu. We'll try to find out how common this bug is and if there are any plans to resolve it. Last year Gameloft introduced their response to the modern day war theater games in the guise of Modern Combat: Sandstorm and the game was quite easily a massive boon for FPS fans with iDevices. Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus not only continues the franchise,…

UFO on Tape Review

Review Revolutionary Concepts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
UFO on Tape Review

For such a simple concept, UFO on Tape by Revolutionary Concepts is perhaps one of the most immediately engaging games I've had the pleasure of trying in some time. After spotting a UFO you'll need to keep your camera steady as you keep the alien ship in focus and on screen before running out of power. This sounds easy enough, but much like the alien crafts of folklore this UFO is fast, slippery and always seems to manage to shift itself in to angles that hide its presence from your l…

Cut the Rope Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Cut the Rope Review

Gah! I seem to be experiencing a cute overload lately - my manliness (NB: may not actually be manly) is experiencing some withdrawals. Aww to heck with it... Om Nom is just too darn cute to get angry at and I blame Chillingo's latest game Cut the Rope for introducing his fierce cuddliness to me. Om Nom the candy-eating monster is hungry and you need to feed him, but while you're at it you may as well collect the stars littering each level as well. The basic gameplay is that of a physi…

BUBBLE BOBBLE DOUBLE Review

Review TAITO Corporation By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
BUBBLE BOBBLE DOUBLE Review

When TAITO decided to update their franchise for the App Store I had mixed feelings; I had the usual fan-boy hope that it's not 'ruined' and the inner-child optimism that they 'get it right'. And now that I've been playing Bubble Bobble Double, I have to say it's only a notch or two off being perfect. It loses these points right out of the gate for the lackluster virtual stick controls for the 'classic' mode - a direct port of the arcade release - however the addition of an AI control…

Gangstar: Miami Vindication Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Gangstar: Miami Vindication Review

At long last the next in the Gangstar series has hit the App Store and Gameloft have once again piled in just enough tweaks and flourishes to show that they're not just taking the easy way out when it comes to sequels. Right off the bat I'm glad to say that other than the basic similarities shared by sandbox titles, this one feels right at home on the iPhone and situating the game in a 'modern' Miami setting makes it harder to make the obvious GTA comparisons. As you make your way thr…

Beyond Ynth Review

Review FDG Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Beyond Ynth Review

Around this time last year gamers were able to get their hands on a neat, unique puzzler named Ynth and despite it's extremely frustrating style it still showed a lot of potential for improvement. Now 'Beyond Ynth', the spiritual sequel by FDG Entertainment and Krabl, has been released all of that potential seems to have been fully realized. Much like the original your goal is to cross a distance of open space, often full of hazards, by rolling boxes with complex designs around the fi…
