Halo: Spartan Strike iPad Review

Review Microsoft Corporation By Harry Slater, 3 days, 18 hours ago
Halo: Spartan Strike iPad Review

What happens when Halo comes to iOS? Halo: Spartan Strike is what happens. But is the top-down twin-stick shooter worthy of Master Chief's legacy? Harry from Pocket Gamer grabs a battle rifle and finds that yes, yes it is.…

Review Amazon Game Studios By Harry Slater, 4 days, 15 hours ago
Lost Within iPad Review

What happens when Pocket Gamer's Harry Slater wanders into an insane asylum with nothing but his wits to protect him? Mild ambivalence and weird backpack monsters if Lost Within is anything to go by. Watch the video to find out whether that's a good thing. …

Review Rayark Inc. By Harry Slater, 2 weeks, 1 day 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, 5 days 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.…

Review Fullscreen, Inc. By Harry Slater, 3 weeks, 2 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, 4 weeks, 1 day 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.…

Review ZORG By Harry Slater, 1 month, 4 weeks ago

GAROU: MARK OF THE WOLVES iPad Review

Review SNK PLAYMORE By Harry Slater, 2 months 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

Review WARCHEST LIMITED By Harry Slater, 2 months, 1 week ago
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, 3 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.…

Helix iPad Review

Review Michael Brough By James Gilmour, 5 months, 1 week ago
Helix iPad Review

Helix is a game about twists and turns. I don't mean it has a surprise M. Night Shyamalan ending or a section where you relive your failed driving test a third, excruciating time. No - in Helix, you are literally spinning your avatar around enemies to eliminate them from the screen. Take a look at our video review to find out whether this simple mechanic won us over.…

Skylanders Trap Team™ iPad Review

Skylanders Trap Team™ iPad Review

Rather than try to make a spin-off, or a severely compromised portable version, Activision has made Skylanders Trap Team a full console quality experience. It's a sight to behold, and even though it practically requires the Portal be used with it at all times, it's a small price to pay. Watch the video above to hear the full review. Read the review transcript over on Pocket Gamer.…

Hazel Dazzle iPad Review

Review Wake Studios By James Gilmour, 1 year, 5 months ago
Hazel Dazzle iPad Review

Hazel is a budding archaeologist who is trying to stop an evil doctor from using the ruins of an ancient race for his own nefarious purposes. The game she inhabits, Hazel Dazzle, is an action adventure that borrows from the spinning, spherical levels of Super Mario Galaxy, and combines them with more traditional dungeon-crawling sections. Unfortunately, though this marriage of gameplay styles can work, Hazel Dazzle is a shallow experience which is afflicted by some irritating tech…

Riptide GP2 iPad Review

Review Vector Unit By James Gilmour, 1 year, 9 months ago
Riptide GP2 iPad Review

Riptide GP2 makes you work for your win. And when we say work, we don't just mean learning track layouts and honing your jetski riding skills. You see, this water-based racer throws you in at the deep end, presenting you with challenges that are initially beyond the capabilities of your jetski. If you want to get first place, you're going to need to upgrade your vehicle. And, if you want to get the cash to upgrade your vehicle, you're going to have to get your grind on. It's lucky, th…
