HexaRot Review

Review Jozsef Kern By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
HexaRot Review

Three-match games are a dime a dozen, with many games even opting to include them as a gameplay mechanic with an entirely separate genre. HexaRot by Jozsef Kern trys to stand out by being more of a brain-teaser, replacing a traditional grid with hexagonal wheels that must be turned to line-up patterns. There's more than a bit of adjustment required in mastering this new matching technique and at times it borders on being more like a puzzle than a quick-fire three match game. The Timed…

Review Alexandre Minard By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
PuzzleManiak Review

I'll confess, it's not often that I truly enjoy a puzzle game because I honestly prefer my games to be more... 'gamey'. Puzzle Maniak by Alexandre Minard is an assorted collection of borrowed puzzle ideas with some unique ones thrown in that keeps you pulled in through its sheer polish and clever online features. Instead of being a hodge-podge of half-finished games Puzzle Maniak manages to implement each puzzle completely along with customizable difficulty levels. You're almost guara…

Cubetrix 3D Review

Review Mobicle Co.,Ltd. By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
Cubetrix 3D Review

Did you ever play a match three gem game and think, "I want these colours to be in cubes that i can push from the outside?" No? Well too bad cause that's what Cubetrix 3D is. Those tricky cubes need to be pushed to form lines of three of the same colour which will then explode, sending the rest careening together, hopefully leading to more explosions. Ok, so maybe the tone is a little melodramatic, but that's the basic idea. There are three buttons on screen. Two are used to move the…

Cross Fingers Review

Review Mobigame By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Cross Fingers Review

Cross Fingers by Mobigames is about as polished as a puzzle game can get on the iPhone with a slick presentation and stunningly simple gameplay that will eat up all of your spare time. The challenge of Cross Fingers is a basic one with players invited to shift blocks of varying size and shape to fill the voids on the screen. Much like tangram puzzles, these voids can be comprised of extremely odd shapes and will require some logic to piece together the final composition. However, this…

BATTLESHIP Review

Review Electronic Arts By Kelly Mitchell, 4 years, 7 months ago
BATTLESHIP Review

Electronic Arts has sunk their battleship into the appstore with their exciting animated adaptation of the classic board game. The main goal of the game is still the same, sink the enemy’s five battleships before they sink your fleet. The controls are pretty much what you'd expect and fairly easy to use. Ships are placed on the grid by selecting and dragging them into position, and players can hunt their opponents ships by tapping squares on the opposite side of the grid. The ga…
