Score! Classic Goals Review

Review First Touch By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
Score! Classic Goals Review

Even those of you who aren't fans of the closest thing to a world sport we have in football (or soccer as it is also known), should be able to admit the most exciting part of the game is the goals. Now of course this is partly due to them being such a rarity, but it's also due to the combination of skill, strategy, and just the right dash of luck for everything to come together and wow the crowds. Score! Classic Goals is a football game that focuses on recreating the most famous goals…

Little Things® Forever Review

Review KLICKTOCK By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
Little Things® Forever Review

Some may remember KLICKTOCK for their recent and delightfully addictive time-waster 'ZONR', but those who own an iPad may remember them nest for something else entirely, 'Little Things'. Now after almost two years the sequel has finally arrived and adds polishes an already fun concept, albeit without adding to the game's basic formula. 'Blasphemy!' I hear you cry, but spare a thought for the iPhone gamer who has only been able to watch while iPad owners have enjoyed one of the best ey…

LostWinds2: Winter of the Melodias Review

LostWinds2: Winter of the Melodias Review

When last we met Toku and the wind-spirit Enril, the evil spirit Balasar was defeated and all was well in Mistralis. It was a short, but intriguing journey filled with exploration and a handful of puzzles, and now with more evil threatening the lands, it's up to Toku and Enril to once again save the world. Ultimately LostWinds felt all too short, almost a teaser of what is possible when platforming meets gesture controls. The sequel takes things even further, implementing fixes from t…

This Could Hurt Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
This Could Hurt Review

As an Oakguard, you're charged with protecting the Great Oak - a mystical plant that ensures your village remains prosperous. As such there are rules to follow and trials to complete: Stay off the grass and timing your run to avoid spinning blades and any other number of traps means This Could Hurt, but you're fairly rewarded for your efforts. Part time-trial, part puzzle, part platformer - This Could Hurt by Orange Agenda and Chillingo may only require a single finger to control, but…

Max Payne Mobile Review

Review Rockstar Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Max Payne Mobile Review

Much like when Rockstar released GTA3 for the iOS platform, I feel the best thing I could say for most gamers is that Max Payne Mobile lacks almost nothing of the original PC and console releases. In fact, while later games may have refined the bullet-time shooting mechanics, the game looses almost none of its fun-factor and charm. Poor Max is at the center of a conspiracy that first claims the life of his wife and child and eventually comes to a head years later while working as an u…

Epic Astro Story Review

Review Kairosoft Co.,Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Epic Astro Story Review

Over time, that spark; that special something; that novelty, if you will, of a Kairosoft 'sim' game started to wear off, even despite refinement of the genre from its rough beginnings on the iOS with Game Dev Story. Seeing the same elements again and again brought an ugly sense of deja vu, but Epic Astro Story breaks the cycle, daring to re-purpose ideas we've seen before to create something novel once again. At first the player is greeted, almost like an old friend, to the familiar l…

Battleloot Adventure Review

Review Digital Tales By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Battleloot Adventure Review

What makes games like Diablo 2, Borderlands, and even World of Warcraft so addictive? Sure they all have interesting stories with intriguing characters, but really it's the combat and most importantly the loot that keeps people playing long passed when their interest should have waned. Battleloot Adventures understands this, and even by its name you can tell where the primary focus lies. The king of Kameloot, known for his greed creates a tournament where the city that wins it will not…

Swordigo Review

Review Touch Foo By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Swordigo Review

To cut to the chase and put things simply, if you've ever wondered what it would be like if someone managed to boil down the Zelda series, turn it in to a platformer with RPG elements and dump it on the App Store, it would look and play a little like Swordigo by Touch Foo. That's high praise for a game, but Swordigo doesn't hold back and throws you right in to an otherwise generic fantasy storyline without hesitation. Your master has died in an attempt to thwart the return of evil to…

Draw Something Review

Review OMGPOP By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Draw Something Review

I bring this message to you in the brief moments of time I now have spare to me. It is abundantly clear to me now that downloading, installing and playing Draw Something with my friends was a huge mistake - I need to work, but I can't... I'm stuck trying to work out how best to depict the word 'Morning' in a clever new way. OMGPOP - you have single-handedly ruined the productivity of smartphone owners around the world. For those who haven't jumped on board the increasingly popular cr…

CHAOS RINGS II Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
CHAOS RINGS II Review

When people ask about 'Triple-A' titles for the iOS platform, SQUARE ENIX and Media.Vision's 'Chaos Rings' series invariably works its way in to the conversation. In some ways it's an unfair example and not to diminish the importance of the first title, but it doesn't hold up compared to similar titles in the genre across other platforms. Omega, the sequel, acted more as an extension of the story of the world the characters inhabited, switching up the central focus and giving a strong…

Fairway Solitaire by Big Fish Review

Review Big Fish Games, Inc By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Fairway Solitaire by Big Fish Review

When starting up a game called Fairway Solitaire, the name suggests a lot. “OK”, you think. “Somehow they've combined solitaire with golf. This should be interesting”. Then you're hit with a cheerfully animated introduction about the age old war between golf and gophers before being thrown into a puzzle game with not only intriguing mechanics, but plenty of personality. Not every course in this game (and there are many on offer) is eighteen holes, but the basic…

Waking Mars Review

Review Tiger Style By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Waking Mars Review

When Tiger Style debuted on the App Store with Spider, it demonstrated their strength as a developer by combining unique gameplay elements, controls designed specifically for a touch-based platform and a fascinating backstory told through found visual elements. After what seems like forever, the studio is back for round two with Waking Mars, an intriguing platformer where you’ll need to rely on your curiosity to survive the planet’s hazardous depths. You play as Liang, a s…

Fancy Pants Adventures Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Fancy Pants Adventures Review

If you own a PC or a Mac and you've not at least heard of or tried the freely available title 'Fancy Pants Adventures' then you've missed out on a real treat. The series acts as a genius example of just how fun a game can be when so much care and attention is placed in to how a character's movement feels as the player runs around the level. Developer Brad Borne's platforming title has made the transition to the iOS platform and despite the lack of physical controls you'll have no probl…

AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! (Force = Mass x Acceleration) Review

Review Dejobaan Games, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! (Force = Mass x Acceleration) Review

Elegance is a word you have to use when you describe a game like 'Aaaa!!! F=ma' by Dejobaan Games and Owlchemy Labs, if only because it takes such a compact and simple concept (falling) and turns it in to something so utterly addictive that you will wonder how you managed to do without playing the game any sooner. Those who have played the original PC and Mac version 'A Reckless Disregard for Gravity' may wonder if the word 'elegant' is entirely appropriate given the game's somewhat ra…

Beat Hazard Ultra Review

Review Cold Beam Games Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Beat Hazard Ultra Review

Games that revolve their play and mechanics around music are something special. What's even more special are those games that allow you to use your own music library as not only this ensures you have levels based around music you enjoy listening to, but it creates almost limitless content. Beat Hazard has been around on Steam for a while, turning any song in your library into an adrenaline pumping twin stick shooter. Now for a lot of people the visual assault of this game made it unpla…
