Virtual City (Full) Review

Review G5 Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 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, 3 years, 10 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, 3 years, 10 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, 3 years, 11 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, 3 years, 11 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, 3 years, 11 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, 3 years, 11 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, 3 years, 11 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…

The Incident Review

Review Big Bucket Software By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
The Incident Review

Curiosity is a powerful tool and when leveraged in the right way it can drag players in to a game and keep them sucked in until they're well and truly hooked. The world is falling apart at the seams in 'The Incident' by Big Bucket Software and your poor unfortunate character will need to dodge, push and climb his way out of the ever increasing pile of trash to find out why this is happening. In each of the game's levels you'll need to dodge junk flung down in to the screen, allowing i…

Anyone familiar with Piyo Blocks will already be somewhat indoctrinated to the kind of carefree fun that seems to run rampant in games by Big Pixel Studios. Meow Meow Happy Fight the latest title from the developer and absolutely no time is wasted in ensuring those playing this twin-stick shooter end up with a huge smile on their faces. Those familiar with twin-stick shooters can expect nothing out of the ordinary, with the left stick controlling movement and the right aiming your wea…

Osmos Review

Review Hemisphere Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Osmos Review

Osmos by Hemisphere Games isn't your typical physics based game and after a brief stint on the iPad, iPhone owners can also check out this simple and absorbing title. In the Blobiverse, Newton's laws are king and you'll need to exploit your ability to fire bits of yourself in order to absorb smaller life-forms until you're the largest around. Osmos is an elegantly simple title to get in to, with 27 missions to introduce new players to each of the game's different modes and concepts. B…

Dark Nebula - Episode Two Review

Review Free Lunch Design AB By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Dark Nebula - Episode Two Review

'Dark Nebula - Episode 2' by 1337 Game Design is the latest in the Dark Nebula series to grace the App Store and fans of the original can expect bigger and better things from this self-proclaimed Labyrinth 'on steroids'. Dark Nebula places you in control of an orb traveling through six different environments and 19 levels, tilting your way through dangerous trap filled zones and in a new twist you'll also be able to bring the fight to your enemies with a brand new combat system. The t…

SimCity™ Deluxe Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 12 months ago
SimCity™ Deluxe Review

If you're wondering where SimCity on the App Store went, well here it is again with a fresh coat of paint as SimCity Deluxe. Perhaps that's being unfair though as where SimCity felt absolutely tragic to play, SimCity Deluxe corrects and improves the game to near pristine levels and is certainly a welcome update from Electronic Arts. If you're unfamiliar with the SimCity series, your single aim is to create a successful city, managing its development and tweaking things to ensure your…

Fastar! Review

Review Cat in a Box Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 12 months ago
Fastar! Review

If you're a fan of RPGs and especially action RPGs then there's no more to say about Fastar! than to go and check it out now. For everyone else that still needs convincing, Fastar! by Cat in a Box Games is a side-scrolling genre parody of RPG and action titles and from the very moment you start playing you're in for a treat. Like so many RPGs you're placed in control of an anonymous slayer-of-things with a suitably oversized weapon in tow on a quest to go as far right as possible. The…

Chopper 2 Review

Chopper 2 Review

Way back in the 'way back when' the Apple II was host to a neat side-scrolling action title called Choplifter. Over two years ago, this genre saw a revival on the App Store thanks to the Chopper series and now, after a long wait, fans of the original can get their hands on this juicy and surprisingly featured sequel for their iDevice of choice. The basic controls are incredibly simple and intuitive to learn, requiring tilt-based movement to direct your helicopter with precision around…
