Review Rayark Inc. By Harry Slater, 4 months, 3 weeks ago
Implosion - Never Lose Hope iPad Review

Tiny Dangerous Dungeons iPad Review

Review Jussi Simpanen By Harry Slater, 4 months, 4 weeks 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.…

Adventures of Poco Eco - Lost Sounds iPad Review

Review POSSIBLE GAMES Kft. By Harry Slater, 5 months, 1 week ago
Adventures of Poco Eco - Lost Sounds iPad Review

Poco Eco is one of those games that's not really that much of a game. It's stunning and chirpy, and features a mesmerising soundtrack. But is that enough to really recommend it? Harry from Pocket Gamer thinks so, and James agrees, mainly because he's reading Harry's review.…

Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect iPad Review

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.…

Skullduggery! Review

Review ClutchPlay Games By James Gilmour, 10 months, 3 weeks ago
Skullduggery! Review

In this zombie obsessed culture of ours you'll find hundreds of games built around protecting your brain from becoming a deadite's breakfast. Skullduggery! flips the script on this trend. Here, your brain is not a helpless yet delicious blob of matter tucked away inside your bonce. Instead, it's an elastic and dynamic system of propulsion and attack, one which you will learn to manipulate until you can navigate mazes and shatter skeletons into bony bits. Check out Mark Brown's review…

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.…

Valiant Hearts: The Great War Review

Review Ubisoft By James Gilmour, 11 months, 2 weeks ago
Valiant Hearts: The Great War Review

While it's fair to say that World War II has been covered from every possible angle in the gaming world, the First World War is comparatively under represented. Valiant Hearts: The Great War not only focuses on the first major global conflict of the 20th century, but does so in a far more subtle and nuanced way than your average military shooter. As Pocket Gamer's Jon Munday discovered, this point-and-click adventure uses both humour and solemnity to tell its story, a combination tha…

Bioshock Review

Review 2K By James Gilmour, 1 year ago
Bioshock Review

BioShock is great. Deservedly held up as a premiere example of digital world building and interactive storytelling, it's a game which drags you through your TV and submerges you in a nightmarish world of neon and noir. Andrew Ryan's failed utopia, populated with genetically modified maniacs and lumbering, drill-armed childminders, is one of the most atmospheric, immersive, and effectively-realised video game settings ever conceived. The gameplay elegantly fuses traditional gunplay w…

Modern Combat 5: Blackout Review

Review Gameloft By James Gilmour, 1 year, 1 month ago
Modern Combat 5: Blackout Review

Modern Combat 5: Blackout is an orgy of simulated violence - short bursts of brutal, amoral slaying set to a soundtrack of bombastic Zimmer-esque strings and the metallic trill of shell casings on concrete. Like it's predecessor Zero Hour, it throws set piece after set piece at you, switching between urban shootouts, gunship massacres, sniper challenges, and aquatic escapes with the excitement of an impatient child opening Christmas presents. The controls are the familiar mixed bag o…

Secret Files Tunguska Review

Review Deep Silver By Alex Beech, 1 year, 1 month ago
Secret Files Tunguska Review

There is a simple question to ask yourself before playing Secret Files Tunguska: if you wanted to eavesdrop on a conversation, would your first instinct be to sellotape a mobile phone to your target's cat? If the answer is yes, then Tunguska's puzzles will be second nature. However, if this confluence of events seems unreasonable, and trial-and-error seems like a chore, then this may not the point-and-click adventure for you. Fortunately, the touchscreen conversion of the o…

Hellraid: The Escape Review

Review Shortbreak Studios By Alex Beech, 1 year, 1 month ago
Hellraid: The Escape Review

Hellraid: The Escape's bleak, medieval environments drip with chilling atmosphere. You begin in dismal dungeon, transfixed on a giant being that’s bearing down you. The creature makes it's way towards your fragile form and swings a massive axe. Moments later you come-to, sealed in a coffin. A few taps of the screen and you are free of the tomb, but still trapped in the underground jail, surrounded by jangling chains and the bones of your cellmates. Your single goal in this…
