Star Battalion Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month 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, 4 years, 1 month 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, 4 years, 1 month 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, 4 years, 1 month 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, 4 years, 1 month 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, 4 years, 2 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, 4 years, 2 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…

Virtual City (Full) Review

Review G5 Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Virtual City (Full) Review

I think I needed to play a game like Virtual City by G5 Entertainment to help me stop judging games by their cover. Sure the game looks like Sim City from a distance, but in reality it's just so much more and Virtual City picks up where farm-management style game left off. Each level of Virtual City provides a series of challenges to overcome in the prefabricated town you're given to manage. Your company must develop the city by adding transport, rubbish and bus routes to keep the cit…

Real Golf 2011 Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Real Golf 2011 Review

After the recent release of Let's Golf 2 from Gameloft I'd have thought there would be a bit more of a cool-off between golfing titles, however here I am with Real Golf 2011 in my hands and I must say I'm not complaining one bit; it's a real killer title. Real Golf 2011 is, for lack of a better word for it, the 'adult' equivalent of the Let's Golf franchise. Gone are the whacky environments and cartoonish characters; in go the beautiful country club vistas and real life golfers. You'l…

Solomon's Boneyard Review

Review Raptisoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Solomon's Boneyard Review

I'm honestly a bit lost for words; when Raptisoft decided to turn their excellent dungeon crawler Solomon's Keep in to a straight twin-stick shooter I wasn't sure what to think. However if you had any interest in the original title then 'Solomon's Boneyard' is almost a guaranteed must try... I think I'm already have withdrawals just writing this review. Ok ok, melodrama aside this title cuts back on the crawling and focuses on some of the best aspects of their original title. In this…

Mirror's Edge™ Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Mirror's Edge™ Review

Oh how I've waited for this day to arrive! It has certainly been a long time coming for the iPhone version of EA's free-running title Mirror's Edge to make its appearance, but the wait has certainly been worthwhile. For those not fortunate enough to own an iPad this will be a wholly unique experience to enjoy, with a light and easy to master control system that mirrors the original game's intent to instill a true sense of 'flow' in movement. Faith is manipulated by basic swipes, gestu…

Spider-Man: Total Mayhem Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Spider-Man: Total Mayhem Review

Coming up to breathe after playing a long session of 'Spider-Man: Total Mayhem' by Gameloft was an eye opening experience - where did the day go? With so many action-brawlers trying to make their mark on the App Store it's great to see someone finally nailing it home and with a great franchise name behind it too no less. The controls are nothing new for the genre, however Total Mayhem manages to make switching between ranged, melee and jumping attacks feel completely smooth to execute…

Zombie Flick Review

Review Full Fat By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Zombie Flick Review

I harp on and on about how overused the zombie idea is, but it's only ever a matter of time before someone comes along and makes me remember why it's such a great concept. Flick Zombie by Full Fat places you in control of a poor survivor with nothing but a pile of junk to defend himself with against an increasingly aggressive horde of zombies. Players need only to flick the screen to throw dozens of truly weird and wonderful items at the horde in order to brutalize them with blunt for…

Monster Dash Review

Review Halfbrick Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Monster Dash Review

Vampires, Demons and Mummies, oh my! ... oh and Zombies. I guess that didn't work so well, but that's ok because unlike my silly intro Halfbrick studios have made the combination work in their latest outing on the App Store, 'Monster Dash'. The new game is ostensibly another horizontal runner and it's only slightly disappointing after the success of Fruit Ninja to see the studio playing it so safe. With that said, this runner isn't quite your average fare, with various monsters provid…

Love Battle Princess Review

Review Tenshi Noir Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Love Battle Princess Review

In the race to develop the next big 'addictive' title, Love Battle Princess by Tenshi Noir is the sort of dark horse I'd like to back as a winner. Combining unique gameplay elements to develop a game that feels exciting and challenging to master while feeling like nothing else, Love Battle Princess would be a hard sell if it wasn't also a beautiful game to look at in more ways than one. The basic gameplay involves collecting flowers by tapping on the screen three times in a row while…
