Carcassonne Review

Review TheCodingMonkeys By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Carcassonne Review

The Coding Monkeys have done an excellent job of transforming the sensational board-game title of Carcassonne to the iPhone. That's jumping the gun on the review, but if you're already a fan of the addictive board-game published by Hans im Glück then that should be all you really need to hear. For everyone else, this is an opportunity you just can't miss. Like many board-games, the space requirements can become utterly daunting to deal with, especially when confronted with a game…

Guitar Hero Review

Guitar Hero Review

It seems that when it rains at Activision, you can expect triple-A titles to pour on to the App Store. The (in)famous Guitar Hero franchise has landed on the iPhone and has almost literally blown the opposition out of the water with years of rhythm game design being packed in to this dense little App. Gamers will get a chance to play the guitar and bass in this title, giving you more bang for your buck as you attempt to master each instrument and unlock new instruments and outfits to…

Superblox : Power Unleashed! Review

Review Casual Friday Games LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Superblox : Power Unleashed! Review

A lot of games that use the iPhone's accelerometer almost sell it short, providing rudimentary controls that feel clunky. Games like Tilt To Live have proven that tilting can in fact be incredibly precise and Superblox by Casual Friday Games has combined speedy, accurate movement controls with a three-match style scoring system to create a game that's frantic and addictive. The controls are calibrated at the beginning of each game and the sensitivity can be controlled from the options…

Sigma Review

Review BigStack Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Sigma Review

In Sigma by BigStack Studios, you'll experience three-match gaming in an amazingly unique way by needing to manage both sides of your screen to pile up massive combos. While similar in appearance to the recently released ColorSWING with its ponderous logical experience, Sigma changes things up and keeps things fast-paced in this arcade style puzzler. Each side of the screen can be quickly rotated up or down to expose a row in the middle which can shoot across a square from the side yo…

HECTOR: Badge of Carnage Ep1 Review

Review Straandlooper By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
HECTOR: Badge of Carnage Ep1 Review

It's time to dim the lights down low in the old brain-box because 'HECTOR: Badge of Carnage Episode 1' by Straandlooper starts in the gutter and only gets lower. That isn't to say that being gross or immature can't be funny, but comparing this straight adventure game to the Leisure Suit series will give you a good indicator of where we're at. Set in the grimy, crime center of Britain, Detective Inspector Hector is like watching a young Joe Don Baker reprising his role as Mitchell for…

Highborn Review

Review Jet Set Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Highborn Review

Highborn by Jet Set Games is a fantasy turn-based tactical strategy and combines some of the best aspects of the genre's top alumni with a healthy dose of tongue-in-cheek comedy. The creators aren't above a bit of fourth-wall action and bless them, they've even included the infamous Wilhelm scream - if that can't win you over, then you might be a bit dead on the inside. The game's over-world uses a hexagon-grid based movement system, with various environmental hazards providing diffic…

Spinzizzle Review

Review PressOK Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Spinzizzle Review

The name 'Spinzizzle' almost says it all for this latest release by PressOK Entertainment. With 21 levels of difficulty to play through, this addictive and fun three-match puzzler will have you spinning various boards back and forth to create the best combinations possible. Each level of the game uses a variety of small patterned boards that you can spin in order to shift the position of each orb on the field. Matching three or more similar orbs will lock them in to place and will wai…

Zombie Shock Review

Review BLUE WIND By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Zombie Shock Review

In Zombie Shock by BLUE WIND you'll be fighting against an increasingly difficult horde of zombies (surprise surprise) while escaping their dangerous clutches. Zombie Shock combines elements of castle defense games with an action-oriented control system to create an intensely addictive and challenging experience that almost anyone can enjoy. This particular combination of gameplay elements does present a few problems when it comes to the controls, allowing players to freely roam the s…

Splinter Cell Conviction™ Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Splinter Cell Conviction™ Review

Gameloft have brought the latest game in the Splinter Cell saga 'Conviction' to the iPhone, giving gamers a chance to follow the story of super agent Sam Fisher in this intense action-stealth title. Conviction has brought the series back from a strong stealth-oriented system that makes Fisher more of a stealthy action hero than a deadly ninja. This has simplified the controls immensely, requiring only the analogue stick to automatically transition between fast and stealthy movement an…

Love Love Review

Review Bambalam By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Love Love Review

With so many Apps coming out each day - some from major companies, most from independent groups - it's easy to miss some real gems. Love Love by Bambalam is a diamond that shouldn't be passed over if you love puzzle match titles. In a similar vein to Dr Mario inspired games, blocks enter the screen as paired groups using each of the primary colors (red, yellow and blue) or a gray 'broken heart'. Matches are made by joining 4 or more same colored blocks directly, however there's an add…

Dominion HD iPad Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Dominion HD iPad Review

One of the iPad's greatest successes has been opening up the potential for table-top games to go digital, making it easy for multiple players to play on a tabletop or pass around. Dominion HD is Chillingo's latest iPad game and a direct adaption of the classic strategic board game Risk. All of the game's controls are menu driven and features a comprehensive tutorial not only to teach you the controls but also run you through your first match as you learn the game's rules. Dominion is…

Pocket Creatures Review

Review Tactile Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Pocket Creatures Review

Almost less than a week after their micro-game App 'Crazy Test' hit the store, developer Tactile Entertainment has released their much anticipated title 'Pocket Creatures' for the iPhone and iPad. You'll take charge of an insanely cute critter as he explores what at first seems like an extremely small environment that turns in to a treasure-trove of gameplay to explore. Double touching and dragging the screen will give you the lay of the land, allowing you to quickly check out the gam…

PewPew 2 Review

Review Jean-Francois Geyelin By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
PewPew 2 Review

It's hard not to overstate how excellent PewPew 2 by Jean-Francois Geyelin is, but I'll try not to gush too much. Where so many twin-stick shooters are content with throwing tonnes of enemies at you with varied AI to mix up the difficulty, PewPew 2 builds on the original by challenging your dexterity, accuracy and puzzle solving skills with levels that are brimming with great design and varied gameplay. Much like any twin-stick shooter you'll be faced with one stick that controls your…

Skate It by EA Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Skate It by EA Review

Skate It by Electronic Arts is finally here after almost two months since it was first announced and brings its unique brand of simulated skateboarding to the App Store. Instead of jabbing a variety of virtual buttons or a d-pad to pull off your tricks, players can combine swipe gestures to string together a chain of tricks. The control system has been pulled out of the Nintendo DS version and given an appropriate upgrade for the iPhone, making it more responsive than its hand-held br…

Zombie Infection Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Zombie Infection Review

An outbreak of what looks to be a zombie plague is ravaging South America and you'll have to pit yourself against the horde in order to save your sibling while thwarting the evil machinations of a global corporation. While the obvious parallels to Resident Evil 5 are blatant, Zombie Infection by Gameloft is still an excellent horror shooter that's exciting and hard to put down. The controls take their cues directly from the latest games in the RE series, using a third person over the…
