Ninjatown: Trees Of Doom! Review

Ninjatown: Trees Of Doom! Review

It all started with 'Wee Ninja', a tiny character designed by former EGM editor Shawn Smith. Thanks to developer Venan Entertainment the concept quickly blossomed in to 'Ninjatown', a tower-defense game for the Nintendo DS. Venan are no strangers to the iPhone and instead of another tower-defense game, their latest game 'Ninjatown: Trees Of Doom!' switches things up as an endless vertical jumper. Trees Of Doom takes a minimalistic approach to the controls, using a single-finger contro…

Dogs Playing Poker Review

Review Candywriter, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Dogs Playing Poker Review

It's such a simple idea, but Dogs Playing Poker could easily have been a hard one to stomach thanks to C. M. Coolidge's paintings holding a dubious position in pop culture and its assorted ephemera. Thankfully instead of some tacky attempt at cashing in on a pop reference Dogs Playing Poker by Candywriter is probably one of the friendliest and certainly furriest Texas Hold'em games for the iPhone. The tutorial is simply brilliant and gives players a chance to not only learn the game's…

Review Agharta Studio By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
1112 episode 02 Review

This has been a long time in the making for those who have patiently awaited the sequel to Agharta Studio's first exciting adventure title '1112', but it has been a worthwhile wait. Episode 2 sets a new high standard for the genre on the iPhone with its amazing art design, clever puzzles and a compelling story that wills you to stick around till the end. If you missed out on the first in this series (or if its just been too long for you to remember) a handy introduction will get you b…

Alive 4-ever RETURNS Review

Alive 4-ever RETURNS Review

Meridian's first entry in the Alive 4-ever series was hard to fault, with a style that transformed the incredible popularity of Left 4 Dead for the PC in to something exciting and playable for iPhone owners. With such a great first title in the series, the sequel 'RETURNS' certainly had huge shoes to fill, but it not only filled those shoes, it completely pimped them out. The same tight dual-stick controls are used in the sequel, making movement and aiming easy and accurate from the g…

Freaking Inkies Review

Review Atakama Labs Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Freaking Inkies Review

Colorful inky blobs have invaded your library and they're ruining your classics from music tabs to your secret stash of comic books, but what can you do? Freaking Inkies by Atakama Labs lets you fight back against the inky-scourge by shooting down each blob in this unique and extremely addictive title. Inkies uses a combination of tilt controls and buttons placed on the edge of the screen to fire colored blobs at your foes. The tilt controls are amazingly accurate and smooth, rivaled…

Ozone Review

Review Ignacio Sanchez Gines By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Ozone Review

Developer Geardome asks their customers, "Can a game be a piece of art?". The debate over this may rage on in tiny pockets of the internet (and in some cases in mainstream media), but truthfully 'Ozone' by Geardome skirts awfully close to art and delivers an experience that's complex and dazzling in its execution. Your orb is pushed around the game's various mazes by touching a direction on the virtual d-pad. This releases a small portion of your remaining gas, which in turn shrinks y…

Fruit Ninja Review

Review Halfbrick Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Fruit Ninja Review

UPDATE: The constant support and updates from Halfbrick for Fruit Ninja has been nothing short of spectacular and over time this title has grown from a fun time waster to something you can share with friends either by sniping high scores or by challenging them directly online with a multiplayer mode. Furthermore the addition of an 'Arcade' mode pits players against the clock with powerful power-ups that will test their slicing skills. Fruit Ninja just gets better and better over time a…

CHAOS RINGS Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
CHAOS RINGS Review

Chaos Rings is the latest JRPG published by Square Enix for the App Store and with a pedigree developer like Media.Vision at the helm, this is more than your average RPG. This is certainly no light-weight game and your pocket will definitely feel the pinch, but if you're willing to take the dive you'll be rewarded with a complex and beautiful experience that's easily one of the best new RPGs available for your iPhone. The game centers around characters who have been partnered up to pa…

Crash Course Review

Review DFC Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Crash Course Review

Inspired by games like Super Stardust HD on the PS3, Crash Course by DFC Games is a frantic twin-stick shooter that'll blow you away with its detailed special effects and fast-paced gameplay. Like most twin-stick games, the left stick controls your movement while the right stick fires your weapons. Various buttons on the interface allow you to trigger super-bombs, change weapons or activate a boost mode that provides temporary invincibility for plowing your way out of traps. The game…

Review RedLynx Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Monster Trucks Nitro 2 Review

Yeeehaw! I lurves me some Monster Trucks! But in all seriousness, who doesn't get a little bit excited by these oversized vehicular behemoths and their destructive powers? Maybe you've never thought about it, but Monster Trucks Nitro 2 by RedLynx will make a believer of you as you flip, boost and smash your way to first place in this side-scrolling tilt racer.

Warpgate Review

Review Freeverse, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Warpgate Review

Warpgate by Freeverse has already had some time to warm up with its HD release on the iPad earlier this month, but how does it hold up for the iPhone? Following in the footsteps of games like Freelancer, Warpgate is a space trading and combat simulation that's perfectly suited for iDevices. What makes the genre so appealing is its blend of open-world mechanics with quest based objectives to convey an underlying storyline. Being action oriented, combat often represents the most complex…

ESPGALUDA II Review

Review CAVE CO.,LTD. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
ESPGALUDA II Review

ESPGALUDA II by Cave is the real deal when it comes to 'bullet hell' shooters and despite being five years in the making for this adaption, nothing is lost from the 2005 Arcade original. This is the sort of game that makes regular shooters look like a stroll in the park and despite its fierce looks, this is a game that can be enjoyed by gamers of all levels. ESPGALUDA II opts for several control levels with left and right hand variants to give players a fighting chance to learn the ga…

ZENONIA® 2 Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
ZENONIA® 2 Review

There's really not much to say about Gamevil's latest release of Zenonia 2. If you were a fan of Zenonia or of Action RPGs in any way, then this sequel is immediately worth grabbing thanks to a plethora of tiny upgrades that have made a great RPG even better. For those that still need convincing, read on. Much like the first in the series, gameplay revolves around an Action RPG style that's easy to pick up and play. The virtual pad moves your character, while a large action button per…

muBlip Review

Review para9 By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
muBlip Review

I'm not sure if I've somehow been co-opted in to an educational game while playing muBlip by para9. On the face of it the game is an Ouendan-style rhythm game with fresh electronic chiptune beats, but to mix things up the game uses a Simon-says watch and repeat set up to add an amazing new kind of challenge to the genre. Each track is broken up in to phrases where the player watches the computer play the beat using on screen patterns and then must repeat the phrase as accurately as po…

STREET FIGHTER IV Review

Review CAPCOM By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 9 months ago
STREET FIGHTER IV Review

If you're going to make a fighting game for the iphone, you best be sure you get the controls right, especially if multiplayer is involved. Street Fighter IV by Capcom has been released on the touch device and it's amazing how faithful it is to the proper arcade/console version. Control is all touch based, using an on screen joystick and four buttons with the touch controls being very responsive. This reviewer had trouble pulling off special moves when needed, but has always had that…
