Fastar! Review

Review Cat in a Box Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month 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

Review Majic Jungle Software By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
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…

Aqua Moto Racing 2 Review

Review Dohi Sweden By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Aqua Moto Racing 2 Review

Resolution Interactive are no stranger to racing titles, but Aqua Moto Racing 2 has upped the ante and fans of jet-ski racers need look no further than this excellent example of fun, adrenaline pumping aquatic mayhem. Players can choose from four basic control options, maneuvering their jet-ski via touch or tilt and selecting between auto and manual acceleration. No matter which option you stick with, the feel of racing your jet-ski is amazing, with weighty physics that slip and drag…

Dogfight 1951 Review

Review Treehouse Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Dogfight 1951 Review

For a long time, developers just couldn't get enough of the World War 1 and 2 eras, but now that many of them have decided to explore the modern era it's almost refreshing to jump back to something more 'classic'. '1951 - World War One' by Treehouse is based in an alternate history setting, with the first World Wars never occurring and after a technological collapse the world has gone to war in the early 50's. Gameplay couldn't be simpler as you start a career as one of three currentl…

Hero of Sparta II Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Hero of Sparta II Review

No, it's not just you. I've got an overwhelming sense that I've been here before too, but if it has to be said Hero of Sparta II (HoS2) by Gameloft has kept it's standards high and in this latest installment in the saga of Argos you'll go head to head against, well, just about everything that moves. However before you get to chopping the obligatory horde of undead and mythical creatures, you'll have to brace yourself for some mighty fine examples of how voice acting shouldn't be done.…

Zen Bound® 2 Universal Review

Review Secret Exit Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Zen Bound® 2 Universal Review

We've walked down this path before; there's a quiet sense of guilt in taking pleasure over tying up inanimate objects with rope. Zen Bound 2 by Secret Exit builds upon their already excellent title by pushing iDevices to their visual limits while adding more content and modes to enjoy. The key to mastering Zen Bound is simplicity in itself, with smooth and intuitive gestures allowing players to twist each object in the ultimate goal of painting it from a neutral wooden state. Swiping…

AirAttack Review

Review Art In Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
AirAttack Review

It can't be said that developers Art In Games didn't strike while the iron was hot and they've promptly released their new shoot'em-up AirAttack after the disappointing 1942: FIRST STRIKE failed to impress. While both of these games have a similar vibe it's hard to make a genuine comparison as AirAttack simply blows the opposition out of the water. There are three standard control schemes to choose from and players can take their pick from the available touch, tilt or virtual stick op…

Helsing's Fire Review

Review Clickgamer.com By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Helsing's Fire Review

Van Helsing is a name that has become synonymous with horror stories and in particular as a vampire hunter thanks to the character's origins in Bram Stoker's Dracula. It's somewhat appropriate that the Dutch doctor should be revived by Amsterdam based developers Ratloop for Clickgamer's latest puzzling title, Helsing's Fire. In order to defeat the invading horde of Dracula's monstrous regiment you'll have to illuminate and subsequently dispatch them with color-coded tonics. It's an in…

Train Conductor 2: USA Review

Review The Voxel Agents By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Train Conductor 2: USA Review

It's been almost six months, but The Voxel Agents have already released the sequel to their incredibly popular action-puzzle title Train Conductor and it's taken the locomotive madness from the Outback and straight to the heartland of the USA. A lot of streamlining of the gameplay has occurred since the last release, with only five locations to explore. To offset this downsizing each area now features an entirely unique gameplay style to explore, with the first two introducing players…

The Jim and Frank Mysteries – The Blood River Files Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
The Jim and Frank Mysteries – The Blood River Files Review

'The Jim and Frank Mysteries - The Blood River Files' is one of Chillingo's latest releases and draws an easy comparison to the Professor Layton series on the Nintendo DS. You follow the adventures of Jim and Frank as they take part in a puzzle-filled mystery spurred on by Jim's Grandfather. The game's basic controls are varied, with different gestures being required for each puzzle you encounter. While adventuring you can take part in a small hidden object game to earn Eureka points…

Super Laser: The Alien Fighter Review

Super Laser: The Alien Fighter Review

EpicForce, the developers behind 'Super Laser: The Alien Fighter' compare their new shoot'em-up to the classic days of Arcade titles that would have punters popping quarters in, one after the other, just to master them. It shouldn't come as a surprise, but this is hardly hyperbole considering that this comes from the same team that developed 'iFighter', a real high water mark for SHMUPs on the AppStore. Players can take their pick of three basic control styles, maneuvering their ships…

Review Nine Pound Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago

Your adventurer in this open-world RPG will stroll, teleport and fight his way around the more than generously sized '5 square mile' desert landscape as you try unravel the mystery of why you're being so hotly pursued by mercenaries and mutants alike.

Review LucasArts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge Review

Waiting a year for the updated sequel to the famous Monkey Island series was no picnic, especially when tidbits and teasers kept trickling out to tantalize their taste-buds, but now the classic Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge is available across almost all major platforms and more importantly your iPhone. In this sequel you continue your adventure as Pirate wanna-be Guybrush Threepwood as he searches for the lost treasure of Big Woop. A lot of improvements have taken place in contr…

PREDATORS™ Review

PREDATORS™ Review

Movie-to-game tie-ins have had a spotted history and often the end result is a rather half-baked title that feels ok, but never really gets to shine. So it's refreshing to not only have PREDATORS for iDevices before its movie comes out, but more importantly this latest release from Chillingo manages to stand on its own feet as an excellent action title. PREDATORS plays like a fine-tuned beat'em-up set in two relatively large areas where you have to complete various tasks to prove your…
