Crash Course Review

Review DFC Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 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…

Warpgate Review

Review Freeverse, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 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, 3 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, 3 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, 4 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, 4 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…

Isotope: A Space Shooter Review

Review Affogato LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Isotope: A Space Shooter Review

Sometimes it's better to be late to the party than to never arrive and Isotope is the kind of twin-stick shooter that you wish you'd discovered earlier. With its rich gameplay and stunning depth of content, it's a wonder this game isn't permanently featured on the App Store. Out of the box Isotope allows you to tailor the controls to your liking, with responsive tilt and stick controls available for movement; stick and touch based aiming for weapons; and even whether or not these cont…

Tilt to Live Review

Review One Man Left By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 4 months ago
Tilt to Live Review

What happens when you take a tilting game like Starball and mix it with the powerups and enemy mayhem of the shmup genre? You get Tilt to Live, that's what! The screen is open to you. Tilt your ship to avoid the red balls while acquiring powerups to destory them, because if one hits you, it's game over. How long can you last? The tilt controls are phenomenal, and with a game like this, you'd hope they would be. The game starts you off with three powerups, an explosion, homing missles,…

Ragdoll Blaster 2 Review

Review Backflip Studios By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 4 months ago
Ragdoll Blaster 2 Review

Ragdoll Blaster was a really fun game by Backflip Studios. Trying to shoot ragdolls out of cannons into a target in as few shots as possible made for some clever level design and addictive gameplay. Well, the sequel is upon us, and the goal is the same. The question is have they expanded upon the idea enough to warrant an entirely new game? Control is just like the first. Touch the screen to shoot the cannon. The power of the shot is determined by how close or far away from the cannon…

Plants vs. Zombies Review

Review PopCap By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
Plants vs. Zombies Review

Popcap is known for some very popular addictive titles and has had some great success in porting these to the iphone. Now, just short of a year of its PC release, the cutesy tower defense game Plants vs. Zombies is now available on this mobile device. There is a pack of zombies roaming the neighbourhood and as a local homeowner, you must use the power of your garden (and the help of Crazy Dave) to repel the undead horde. Control is fantastic. Every action is a touch away, and even whe…

Review Fluttermind By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Flaboo! Review

Every now and then a game comes along that just hits all of your buttons and sucks you right in. Flaboo! by Fluttermind is a new endless gameplay style game that is cute, addictive and most worryingly of all a danger to any amount of spare time you have. Initially Flaboo can be compared to games like Doodle Jump and requires you to bounce your fat chick higher and higher up a series of clouds. Here's where the similarities end as the game combines complex gameplay to keep you constant…

Review Ubisoft By Kym Holmes, 4 years, 5 months ago

The game is controlled through a fairly intuitive slider bar which is used to move Ezio at different speeds while 3 context sensitive buttons provide options from standard fighting and jum…
