Minigore 2: Zombies Review

Review Mountain Sheep By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
Minigore 2: Zombies Review

Minigore could easily be considered one of the staple titles of the iOS platform - despite its (now) relatively mundane concept of throwing hordes of enemies at you while you control the hero with a twin-stick setup, its execution and presentation remained the high-water mark for a long time. Mountain Sheep's sequel, Minigore 2: Zombies, returns without pomp or ceremony. As soon as you load up you're dumped straight in to the first stage and you can choose to use the auto-aim system o…

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Review

Review Rockstar Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Review

For those of you out there who are fans of Vice City and used to the quirks of iOS gaming (that is to say, touch-based gaming controls) then I can get you in and out of this review fairly quickly: 'It's everything you loved about the original, but with less adequate - though still useable - controls'. Also it's gorgeous.' For everyone else, lets dig a little deeper. Rockstar Games' second third-person foray in their Grand Theft Auto series is still regarded an all-time classic, even…

Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour Review

Gameloft's Modern Combat series has gone from strength to strength and the fourth title, Zero Hour, steps things up once again. Unfortunately there are also strangely archaic hold-overs being dragged in its wake, preventing the big-console inspired game from being an all-time classic. The hold-over I speak of is the AI. By now fans of the series have come to appreciate, and maybe even love the way Gameloft have pitched their controls, giving players access to tight, action-packed leve…

Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders Review

Review Atypical Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders Review

Storm Raiders by Atypical Games and Revo Solutions has been given a huge visual overhaul, giving the Sky Gamblers series exactly what it needed to remain the best in show. Considering previous titles had almost perfected flight simulator gameplay for the iOS platform, pairing the game up with famous locations, rendered in gorgeous detail and polished with high resolution textures makes this a must-have all on is own. However, leaving the review there would skip over important details,…

Angry Birds Star Wars Review

Review Rovio Entertainment Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Angry Birds Star Wars Review

I rarely say this, but every now and then a developer actually 'gets it'. 'Gets what' you say? They get tie-in products, which is all the more strange for Angry Birds Star Wars not only being a mash-up of two very popular franchises, but the game isn't even new - it's an add on. Yet still, here I sit playing the game, gaze firmly fixed on my targets as I attempt to solve yet another tricky puzzle.Over the years this sort of puzzle design is what Angry Birds has come to specialize in an…

Girls Like Robots Review

Review [adult swim] By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 12 months ago
Girls Like Robots Review

Girls like Robots, published by Adult Swim is the most charming and entertaining seating arrangement simulator on the App Store. Now before you all run away out of boredom, let's clarify that. Yes the core mechanic of the game is to find the optimal seating arrangement between a collection of colorful characters that either love or loathe each other, but it's through the characters themselves, and how the game keeps unrolling new situations that makes this a puzzle game that's certainl…

Punch Quest Review

Punch Quest Review

So many auto-runners vie for attention now it can seem like a vast generic blur of jumping, sliding and coin-grabbing albeit with a gimmick here or there to prop it up. Punch Quest by Rocketcat Games and Madgarden makes no apologies for jumping in on the bandwagon, but it does so with as much pomp and excitement as Jetpack Joyride, while also bringing something far more interesting to the table - near endless brawling. The name says it all - your character starts and ends their…

Carmageddon Review

Carmageddon Review

When you have cars, a race-track and checkpoints, your first assumption is generally that the game you're playing is a racer. If we were to forget about Carmageddon's colorful history, you'd likely approach the game like any other, but you'd be playing it wrong. See, it's not that you can't race to the finish line, but rather that it's not the most profitable, be it for your in-game piggy bank or for your more intangible emotional piggy bank. Some days you just want to tear something a…

Funky Smugglers Review

Funky Smugglers Review

Imagine you have to rush a bunch of Brazil-bound Coconut Jugglers through a terminal and on to their plane, only to find that they're harboring dozens of contraband items on their body. You'd be upset too, but thankfully in Funky Smugglers you can pluck those items out of their 'hiding spots' without a moment's hesitation, thwarting the efforts of those who would seek to breech the security of the airport. You're given 'three' attempts at failing before your game is over in Funky Smug…

Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin Review

Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin Review

2012 must be the year of the tentacle (which sounds like a great sequel to the famous Lucasarts adventure game). How else can you explain not one but two highly unique, and successful games based about an octopus’ numerous noodly appendages? Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin, made by Microsoft Studios, out of all unlikely developers is a tale of a lab created abomination named Lemmy, who is swallowed by his creator, the mad scientist Dr. Phluff (who has the head of a dolphin), and has…

The Last Express Review

Review DotEmu By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years ago
The Last Express Review

In the world of Adventure titles, The Last Express is a sort of right-of-passage, especially as it puts a spin on the usual tropes of the genre by packing them in to a mystery-thriller that plays out in real-time. It should be no surprise that such a concept sprang from the mind of Prince of Persia creator Jordan Mechner, and despite its relative age it remains a shining example of how deeply gameplay and storytelling can be intertwined. You play as Robert Cath, a young doctor thrown…

Bad Piggies Review

Bad Piggies Review

You'd be forgiven for thinking Rovio spent too long resting on their laurels after Angry Birds, opting to drive the franchise instead of seeking new horizons. Thankfully Amazing Alex found its way out of the studio (albeit as a re-branding of an existing game) and it was clear the studio was ready to try something new. Note, not 'different' - one can't claim that Bad Piggies breaks away from the physics-puzzle-and-three-star formula we've come to know so well, but it's most definitely…

God of Blades Review

God of Blades Review

Fans of classic sci-fi fantasy or 70s synth/prog-rock may need to brace themselves for the likes of White Whale Games' God of Blades. With writing that invokes shades of HP Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard, and artwork that feels like a nightmare trip through Frank Frazetta's mind, there's not an inch of this game that isn't dripping with a strangely appealing other-worldly sheen. These connections are strengthened even further thanks to each of the game's four chapters having its own '…

FIFA SOCCER 13 by EA SPORTS Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
FIFA SOCCER 13 by EA SPORTS Review

The waves keep crashing against the beach; the sun keeps rising; and the moon’s orbit slowly decays to an eventual stop; such are the many natural things we can can count on to happen every day, including Electronic Arts’ inevitable update to the FIFA franchise. If you detect a slightly sour bitterness on the palette, don’t worry, it’s just a sore point borne of the cyclical nature of the game industry. There is, however, a benefit to this kind of repet…

STREET FIGHTER X TEKKEN MOBILE  Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
STREET FIGHTER X TEKKEN MOBILE  Review

In only three short months STREET FIGHTER X TEKKEN (SFxTK) has undergone a transition from its true home on Consoles and PCs to the mobile platform. Fighter fans may take exception to my wording there, but fear not, Street Fighter on iOS has (to date) been adapted almost perfectly for touch-screen devices. SFxTK is no exception to this and indeed it places even more emphasis on its ‘versus’ modes than ever before - sure you can enjoy the game single-player, but if you have…
