Vector Rally Review

Review EJay Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Vector Rally Review

We've had tilt-based racers, touch-based racers and even line-drawing racers, but now you can try your hand at a turn-based racer. Vector Rally by EJay Studios resurrects the classic pen and paper game from the schoolyard and gives it a 21st century makeover for your iPhone. Be warned, things can get a little bit nerdy from here on in. Much like the title implies, your racer is placed on a grid and its movement is determined by simple vector addition and subtraction depending on where…

Simon Graham and the Extraordinary Timepiece, Book I Review

Review The App House By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Simon Graham and the Extraordinary Timepiece, Book I Review

'Simon Graham and the Extraordinary Timepiece, Book I' (deep breath) by The App House is an interesting experiment in trying to recapture what made the Professor Layton series on Nintendo's handhelds so popular. With its turn of the century 'period' style and dozens of interesting puzzles the game certainly steps in the right direction, but will players dive in to the world of Simon Graham long enough to wait for 'Book II'? Most of the game's puzzles are touch-driven, allowing players…

Chromixa Review

Review Wet Nose Design Ltd By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
Chromixa Review

Chromixa began life as an art installation based on creator Simon Watson's fascination with light. A handful of development time later and we have a light based puzzle game for the iphone. The goal is to create shapes of a solid colour out of overlaying smaller pieces of different colours, much like a jigsaw. Control is all touch and drag. Upon touching a piece, it can be dragged anywhere on screen or the large wheel can be used to rotate it. If you ever get confused about which colou…

Brain Challenge 2: Think Again! Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 12 months ago
Brain Challenge 2: Think Again! Review

After a quirky little game on the Nintendo DS challenged people to train their brains, a slew of games from developers tried to cash in on this "mini-game" craze. Brain Challenge 2: Think Again! (BC2) by Gameloft is yet another in the brain training genre, but thankfully it's also probably one of the best currently available. The mini-games are controlled by touching to confirm your selection from a range of possible answers. The buttons can be fairly small on some of the games, so la…

Civilization Revolution Review

Review 2K By Dave Flodine, 5 years, 1 month ago
Civilization Revolution Review

Sid Meirs' Civilization series is one of the most addictive strategic video games in history. A bold statement, but its tech trees, exploration, and 'one more turn' style of gameplay has kept this reviewer glued to his screen since the early 90s. In this port of the most recent game in the series, we see how this style of gameplay transfers to the iPhone. You start the game by choosing a world leader and beginning your civilization around 3000 BC. As you build your armies, cities, and…

Mind Games 2 Review

Review Player X By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 2 months ago
Mind Games 2 Review

The brain training genre of games have often felt like a hodge-podge collection of mini games that combine puzzles and arcade elements, scoring you for the sake of progress. In other words, they were less about training and more about the challenge. Mind Games 2 may be a fairly simple offering compared to other brain training games, but this one feels like the real deal; your brain will feel the burn. Most games use a simple touch to select answers from the plethora of game modes, tho…
