Review Rayark Inc. By Harry Slater, 1 week, 3 days ago
Implosion - Never Lose Hope iPad Review

Implosion - Never Lose Hope sees you stomping through a ravaged earth slicing up monsters in a super-powered mech suit. What's better than that? According to Harry from Pocket Gamer, not much at all.…

Tiny Dangerous Dungeons iPad Review

Review Jussi Simpanen By Harry Slater, 2 weeks, 1 day ago
Tiny Dangerous Dungeons iPad Review

Tiny Dangerous Dungeons is a retro-looking platformer with a mean streak and a serious sense of charm. But is that enough to make you download it. Harry from Pocket Gamer puts on his old-school shoes and slips into the past to find out.…

Jump'N'Shoot Attack iPad Review

Review Fullscreen, Inc. By Harry Slater, 2 weeks, 5 days ago
Jump'N'Shoot Attack iPad Review

Harry from Pocket Gamer straps on a jet pack and shoots some angry mutants in this retro-tastic two-touch blast from the past. But are rose tinted spectacles enough to get him through? Yeah, probably.…

Stormblades iPad Review

Review Kiloo By Harry Slater, 3 weeks, 3 days ago
Stormblades iPad Review

Stormblades takes the Infinity Blade template, shakes it up a bit, adds some sort of auto-running sections, and wraps everything up in a free to play model. But is that enough? In this video James uses his voice to tell you that Harry from Pocket Gamer thinks it just about is.…

AG Drive iPad Review

Review ZORG By Harry Slater, 1 month, 3 weeks ago
AG Drive iPad Review

AG Drive is the latest in a long line of swooshy swoopy futuristic racers to hit the App Store, but can it succeed where so many others have failed. Yes, says Harry from Pocket Gamer. Yes it can.…

GAROU: MARK OF THE WOLVES iPad Review

Review SNK PLAYMORE By Harry Slater, 1 month, 3 weeks ago
GAROU: MARK OF THE WOLVES iPad Review

Can a classic 2D pugilism sim really work on a touchscreen device? Can you pull off a dragon punch input when there's nothing telling your finger when to stop? Is it really possible to punch a 2D sprite so hard its head falls off? Harry from Pocket Gamer strives to answer these questions and more in this video review of legendary SNK brawler Garou: Mark of the Wolves.…

Tempo™ iPad Review

Tempo™ iPad Review

Tempo is a shooter with a twist. The twist is that it's not really a shooter. I mean, shooting happens. There's definitely shooting involved, but rather than pulling the trigger you're tapping along to various quick time events in order to get rid of the bad guys. Does it actually work? Yes, yes it does, and in the video above Pocket Gamer's Harry Slater will explain why.…

Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect iPad Review

Review Orpheus Interactive Inc. By Harry Slater, 2 months, 2 weeks ago
Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect iPad Review

The Sons of Anarchy TV show might have come to a miserable end, but Orpheus Interactive has released Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect, a grim and gritty adventure game set in the same universe. There are bikes, there are swear words, and there are cringe-worthy speeches about honour and loyalty. But is it actually any cop? Pocket Gamer's Harry Slater reckons not. Have a gander at the video above to find out why.…

The Witcher Battle Arena Review

Review CD Projekt RED S.A. By James Gilmour, 2 months, 2 weeks ago
The Witcher Battle Arena Review

The App Store has gone a bit MOBA mad recently. First we had Fates Forever, then Vainglory. Now we have a new pretender to the throne: The Witcher Battle Arena, a streamlined interpretation of the classic MOBA format featuring characters from the popular RPG series. But is it worth your time? Pocket Gamer's Matt Thrower reckons so. Check out the video above to learn why.  …

Roller Polar Review

Review Nitrome By James Gilmour, 4 months, 1 week ago
Roller Polar Review

Dev studio Nitrome is making a bit of a name for itself. Landing on our radar last year with the excellently chilly physics puzzler Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage, the team has once again looked to arctic conditions as inspiration for its latest mobile game. This time its Roller Polar, a twitch game that all about leaping over rocks, trees, birds, and snowmen. Seriously - don't get us started on the snowmen. Pocket Gamer's Harry Slater explains why you should really consider giving fros…

oh my giraffe Review

Review Nico Prins By James Gilmour, 4 months, 1 week ago
oh my giraffe Review

I think it's safe to say that we've all had our fill of endless-runners. However, we recommend you don't write of the entire genre before trying oh my giraffe, the extremely daft but surprisingly enjoyable savanna-based sprinter starring a giraffe with the most flexible neck in Africa. Harry Slater reviewed the game for Pocket Gamer. Check out the video to hear his verdict.…

Proun+ Review

Review Engine Software By James Gilmour, 4 months, 2 weeks ago
Proun+ Review

Some racers are fast. Some are beautiful. Some have banging soundtracks and a selection of entertaining modes. But few have all these elements - especially on iOS. Against all the odds, however, Proun+ delivers all of the above strengths in a single, scintillatingly arty package. Pocket Gamer's Harry Slater loved it, and you find out why by checking out the video review above.…

Crimsonland HD Review

Review 10tons Ltd By James Gilmour, 5 months ago
Crimsonland HD Review

Giant spiders. Zombie lurkers. Weird greed lizard men that look like they've escaped from a particularly cheap and wonky episode of Doctor Who. You'll find all these creatures and more in the iOS port of decade-old twin-stick shooter Crimsonland. And yes, you'll get to shoot them all with a variety of weird and wonderful weapons. Check out the carnage in Crimsonland HD video review above.…

Electronic Super Joy: Groove City Review

Electronic Super Joy: Groove City Review

Lo-fi platformers may be all the rage, but developers still have a tough time making the formula work on touchscreen devices. Thank goodness for Electronic Super Joy: Groove City, then, a twitchy, brash, and brutal side-scroller which is as interested in silly asides and pop culture nods as it is in sadism. To learn more, direct your eyes to the video above.…
