Tilt to Live Review

Review One Man Left By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 9 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, 9 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…

Review PopCap By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 9 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.

Flaboo! Review

Review Fluttermind By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 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.

Skies of Glory Review

Review MindJolt By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 10 months ago
Skies of Glory Review

There's a kind of magic that comes from developers that use the free-to-download but pay-to-play model correctly and Skies of Glory by SGN will have you handing out cash almost willingly. As the name implies it's a flight simulator with arcade style dog-fighting. The game's set in World War II and takes players on a world-wide tour as you progress through the missions. Your accelerometer controls the basic tilt and lift of your plane, while touches and drags allow you to manipulate yo…

Thankfully the cure to this lethargy is simple as Need for Speed Shift isn't just fast and furious, it's so good you'll be smiling in 60 seconds. One of the first solid features of the game revolves around your chosen difficulty settings. Depending on your selection features like auto-braking, steering assist, auto transmissio…

Low Grav Racer 2 Review

Review Cobra Mobile Limited By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 10 months ago
Low Grav Racer 2 Review

In the same vein as futuristic racers like Wipeout and F-Zero, Low Grav Racer 2 is Cobra Mobile's second attempt at bringing high-speed, face melting combat-based racing to the App Store. Much of the inconsistency that plagued the previous game's controls have returned proving to be too sensitive at slow speeds and almost dead at high speeds, but thankfully the addition of sensitivity options and practice can make this manageable. The physics are fairly fanciful and make it difficult…
