Skies of Glory Review

Review MindJolt By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 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…

Need for Speed Shift Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Need for Speed Shift Review

It's hard to put some prejudices behind and while racing games are generally fun, they also lack a lot of energy and feel like they're entirely interchangeable. 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…

Review Origin8 By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 7 months ago
Space Station: Frontier Review

The tower defense genre has been one of the more popular of the app store, patrly due to the simplicity of its touch controls.

Review Rockstar Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars Review

Grand Theft Auto has always been a magnet for controversial topics, but one GTA above all others received serious attention because it dared to place you in the shoes of a drug trader.

Jumping in to the game is easy with sensitive and simple to identify virtual pads and multi function buttons that hide when not required. Feature moments of the game will have yo…

Labyrinth 2 Review

Review Illusion Labs By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 7 months ago
Labyrinth 2 Review

The sequel to the popular physics based puzzle game is here but with the addition of new features and improvements, players are treated to some unexpected surprises.

Low Grav Racer 2 Review

Review Cobra Mobile Limited By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 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…

METAL GEAR SOLID TOUCH (US) Review

METAL GEAR SOLID TOUCH (US) Review

Metal Gear Solid Touch gears up for big action without the hours of cut scenes players have come to expect from Hideo Kojima. Players take control of Old Snake as he must progress through the story of MGS4 in a number of small fire-fights. Snake must progress through each level by killing the designated number of enemies and avoiding as much damage as possible. Snake is holed up in a small trench like structure and pops out to fire when players tap and hold on the iPhone screen. By dr…

Defender Chronicles - Legend of The Desert King Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 7 months ago
Defender Chronicles - Legend of The Desert King Review

Just when you thought all Tower Defence games were the same, along comes Defender Chronicles to smack you upside the head with a dead goblin. Yes, the core gameplay is the same but certain changes have been made to break the repetitive nature of most TD games. Instead of placing towers ‘willy nilly’ on the map, players must co-ordinate towers along the specific build zones to make the most effective army possible. The upgrade and placement system is very straightforward as…

OMG Pirates! Review

Review Mika Mobile, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
OMG Pirates! Review

From the developer that brought you mass zombie slaughter in Zombieville USA comes the next beat'em up action adventure from Mika Mobile, OMG Pirates. Slaughtering pirates en masse couldn't be more fun, but that doesn't mean it'll be easy. The controls are a simple affair, which not only gives Pirates an old school feel, but makes the game easier to deal with on the iPhone. You move your nimble ninja with a virtual analogue stick and jump, counter, combo and flip out with the aid of t…

Zen Bound™ Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Zen Bound™ Review

While the idea of rope bondage may invoke either images of tying down furniture in the back of a trailer; luggage on a roof; a boat to a moor; or even something more bedroom orientated, Zen Bound attempts to be a game that's more of an experience than something competitive. Contemplation and calm calculation are unsurprisingly key requirements to grasping and enjoying this beautiful app. Multiple gestures are combined with the accelerometer in order to twist and tie up a series of obj…

N.O.V.A. - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
N.O.V.A. - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance Review

Halo as a franchise was the start of a console revolution for the first person shooter. It combined well designed controls with a highly anticipated adventure story and amazing multiplayer paving the way for future FPSs. NOVA (Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance) may not be as epochal, but it has refined the genre for the iPhone in a way that can't be ignored. Veterans of FPSs will quickly adapt to the controls that are purpose built and well considered for touch screens. Of the three contro…
