BADLAND Review

Review Frogmind By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
BADLAND Review

If my arm was twisted and I had to describe BADLAND by Frogmind as quickly as possible, I'd describe it as a darker and even more disturbing take on the Lemmings concept, but with flying Furbies. It's not perfect, but game doesn't exactly jive with conventions as you throw caution to the wind and smash, stab, crush, and slice hundreds of clones in an attempt to reach the all-important exit tube. And you'll do it all with nothing more than a single finger. By tapping or holding, you'l…

Magicka iPad Review

Review Paradox Interactive By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
Magicka iPad Review

If you haven't had a chance to play one of the incredible Magicka titles from Paradox Interactive, this is a special kind of treat. It would have been too much to expect the game to have been brought over without any changes - it was a game very much reliant on its keyboard and mouse control setup - and so with the help of Ludosity, Magicka has been reborn as a 2D side-scrolling brawler. "SACRILIGE!" I hear you cry out, but your cries are in vain - the game you know has been kept in t…

Fetch™ iPad Review

Review Big Fish Games, Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
Fetch™ iPad Review

Let me start this review by removing those of you who can't get past a game having a low level of challenge - Fetch is aimed at younger audiences, and as such you're not going to find the 'hardcore' experience you may expect of all games. With that said, Fetch by Big Fish Games is the gaming equivalent of a Dreamworks or Pixar movie: despite being designed for younger audiences, adults aren't left out of the equation either thanks to the wonderful story that pulls on your heart strings…

Unmechanical Review

Review Teotl Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
Unmechanical Review

The development of Unmechanical has undergone several stages, with the first of these being a ten minute or so title created as part of an educational program in Sweden. From there it went on to become a full-fledged puzzler for the PC on the Steam platform, and now almost a year after that we have the iOS version. You play as a lost and somewhat confused unnamed robot stuck in a vast underground network of machinery. With nothing more than your wits and a small tractor beam you'll ne…

NightSky™ Review

Review Nicalis, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
NightSky™ Review

It's amazing how controls can affect a game. Dave played Nightsky on the PC, and while using the arrow keys to move the orb was adequate, there was something lacking, and the whole experience didn't really leave a lasting impression. Now we have the iOS port, and with the addition of tilt controls (as well as other options), this atmospheric simple physics journey starts to really shine. The game starts with the player finding a mysterious orb on the beach. As you would, he takes the…

Super Stickman Golf 2 Review

Review Noodlecake Studios Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
Super Stickman Golf 2 Review

When we first encountered Super Stickman Golf by Noodlecake Studios it was hard to keep our joy contained. At its core the game was a by-the-numbers 2D golfing title, however the clever addition of power-ups that required skill to obtain, and added even more depth and gameplay options once obtained made it a solid gold title. Super Stickman Golf 2 has a huge legacy to live up to, and while the core once again remains the same, it's the small details that continue to keep the series run…

Major Magnet Review

Review Iddiction By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 7 months ago
Major Magnet Review

Major Magnet is not the most observant of superheroes. In a humorously animated intro sequence, he's so happy just flying around the city, that he doesn't notice the dastardly Colonel Lastin pulling up alongside him to steal his cape, which sends the Major plummeting to the depths below. Luckily another specialty of our intrepid hero is the power of magnetism (in the literal sense, not the charismatic one). What follows is a series of small levels in which you use Major's magnet to fly…

Penumbear Review

Review Bulkypix By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 8 months ago
Penumbear Review

Penumbear by Taco Graveyard and Bulkypix doesn't pull any punches. All too often the App Store finds itself burdened with titles that evoke the likeness of games we know and love, but so few go as far as to understand what made them great and come up with something entirely new in the process. With nothing more than the ability to run back and forth, jump, and activate various switches in the world, you'll need to solve a complex series of stages that beg you to scratch a little deepe…

Year Walk Review

Review Simogo By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 8 months ago
Year Walk Review

Isolation, loneliness, darkness, despair, and fear - such are the emotions exploited by thrillers and horror based titles, and Year Walk by Simogo is no exception. However, instead of relying on cheap thrills and spills or obscene violence like a teen-slasher, this title gently pushes you in to a world dripping with macabre portents, leading you deeper and deeper in to its dark and disturbing story. For a developer known for their upbeat titles, Year Walk makes for a surprising change…

Little Inferno iPad Review

Little Inferno iPad Review

Call me crazy, but I was saving myself for the iPad release of Tomorrow Corporation's 'Little Inferno', as such I can't provide much of a comparison to the console or PC versions. What I can say is that Little Inferno feels as though it was always destined for the iOS platform - it was conceptually _made_ for the IAP heavy, freemium dominant scene that is the App Store. In short, Little Inferno is champion the platform deserves, even if it doesn't need it specifically. The game starts…

TABLE TOP RACING Review

Review Playrise Edge Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
TABLE TOP RACING Review

When reviewing a title I often come across an internal dialogue in the form of a line of questioning that ends up sounding a little like this: "Where's all the depth? Shouldn't there be more stuff I can do?", "Does it matter? Are you having fun?", "Actually I am, but I'm afraid it won't last". For a game sporting as little as 8 stages and 10 vehicles, you'd think the fun would quickly run out, but Playrise Edge have nailed Table Top Racing's 'Kart' gameplay so perfectly that it's hard…

Might & Magic Clash of Heroes Review

Review Ubisoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
Might & Magic Clash of Heroes Review

The appearance of Might & Magic Clash of Heroes on the iOS platform marks its third transplantation from the original DS release. After garnering praise for both its handheld and console release, mobile gamers can now experience the wonderfully paced and executed Tactical-RPG from Capybara Games, the minds behind Critter Crunch and co-authors of Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP. Explaining the mechanics might take a moment, but those paying attention may already remember a g…

TNNS Review

Review Rabbx Inc. By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 9 months ago
TNNS Review

After Ziggurat, it was going to be interesting to see what Action Button Entertainment came up with next. We're a little late to the party on this one, but with the release of TNNS (which is pronounced tennis), they seem to have cemented themselves as a maker of games with simple mechanics and premises, that reward an increase of skill from the player, while having very engaging low-fi presentation. TNNS is a variation on both Pong and Breakout, with a subtle change of control, and a r…

Joe Danger Review

Review Hello Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
Joe Danger Review

The original Joe Danger for the PSN was a heck of a ride - fluid, fast and packed full of collectables and objectives to complete, it was joy to play. Now Hello Games have brought their stunt-riding racer-come-high-scorer to the App Store and while it can take some getting used to the manic pace, Joe Danger Touch is no less addictive or fun than its bigger brother. Where the original title had more of an exploratory edge to its gameplay (akin to a hybrid of Excitebike and Trials HD),…

Pudding Monsters Review

Review ZeptoLab UK Limited By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
Pudding Monsters Review

After the incredible success of Cut the Rope, developer Zeptolab undoubtedly spent more than a moment wondering just how they'd follow it up. As it turns out, they've branched out in a new direction - albeit one still featuring sugary treats and three-star rated puzzlers - and players will have to flick and stick blobs of pudding together to create the ultimate Pudding Monster. In each stage the player is given a handful of puddings they can flick around the screen. As with similarly…
