Review Gameloft By Harry Slater, 2 weeks, 1 day ago
Dungeon Hunter 5 iPad Review

Do you want to mash things in the face with a big sword? Do you like not really having to think about anything ever? Then Dungeon Hunter 5 could well be the game for you. And in this video Harry from Pocket Gamer takes you on a review-y tour of the perfectly adequate hack-and-slasher.…

Adventures of Poco Eco - Lost Sounds iPad Review

Review POSSIBLE GAMES Kft. By Harry Slater, 3 weeks, 1 day 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.…

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.…

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.…

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.…

OTTTD iPad Review

Review SMG Studio By Alex Beech, 10 months, 3 weeks ago
OTTTD iPad Review

OTTTD (or 'Over The Top Tower Defence') does a pretty good job of living up to its title. Every stage, you are swarmed by bizarre cartoon aliens, and must erect towers to fight them back. Each vanquished foe leaves behind a bloodied corpse, meaning that, within minutes, your base in drenched in an ocean of gore. While the action is frantic, the classic tower defence gameplay is easily mastered thanks to its straightforward controls. Tapping on any construction point brings up a radial…

Agricola iPad Review

Review Playdek, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 9 months ago
Agricola iPad Review

Some board games have an extraordinary number of pieces, making the simple act of setting up a monumental task in itself. Now aficionados will tell you that's part of the allure, but especially with a game like Agricola, the benefit of being able to starta game in a couple of taps cannot be understated. Agricola is a turn based strategy game based around medeavil farming. Now stop right there. Before you cease reading or close the video window, hear us out. While the game may seem ove…

Sid Meier's Ace Patrol iPad Review

Review 2K By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 9 months ago
Sid Meier's Ace Patrol iPad Review

Sid Meier's Ace Patrol is the latest experiment from the acclaimed creator of the Civilization franchise. It's a game that echoes of the combat changes made to the series in Civilization V. Thrown into World War I, you take to the skies as a flying ace. It's up to you to master your aircraft: changing altitude, rolling, banking, and blasting your enemies until they burst into flames. However, these dogfights play out not in real time, but as a turn based experience on a hexagonal grid.…

Pinball Rocks HD iPad Review

Review Sony Music Entertainment By James Gilmour, 1 year, 10 months ago
Pinball Rocks HD iPad Review

Pinball Rocks HD is an odd franchise. On the surface, it's a free-to-play pinball title, featuring a selection of purchasable rock 'n roll-themed tables. However, browse through the song selection menu, and you discover the trappings of a music game, one which is keen for you to shell out cash for extra tunes. In actual fact, the expandable soundtrack is just that: a soundtrack. The only way music impacts gameplay is thematically. While the basic free-to-play table is dressed in gener…

Omicron HD iPad Review

Review Canupa By James Gilmour, 1 year, 10 months ago
Omicron HD iPad Review

The colour-tapping casual puzzler Omicron has been on the App Store for a couple of years now. However, clearly bored by the flat visuals and limited modes of the original, the devs have decided to completely overhaul and re-launch the game via a recent update. The core gameplay remains the same as always. You are presented with a colour at the beginning of every round. It's your job to tap every matching tile that appears, with the intention of clearing the screen. Successfuls taps a…

Kingdom Rush Frontiers HD iPad Review

Review Ironhide Game Studio By James Gilmour, 1 year, 10 months ago
Kingdom Rush Frontiers HD iPad Review

Sequels can be tricky. You have to give the fans more of what they loved the first time out, while adding enough new elements to warrant a second visit. It's doubly difficult when you're following an acclaimed title like tower defence titan Kingdom Rush. Luckily for us, developer Ironhide has kept its cool and delivered another top tier instalment to artillery-oriented action. The team hasn't deviated far from the original template, but considering the quality of the original, that's n…

Poker Night 2 iPad Review

Review Telltale Inc By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Poker Night 2 iPad Review

The Inventory is a strange place. It's a kind of nexus point for pop culture characters from multiple mediums to converge and play games of high-stakes poker. The first entry in the series was quite successful, offering a poker experience seasoned with the kind of hilarious dialogue that comes with such a varied and wacky group of characters. The sequel follows suit. Brock Samson from The Venture Brothers, Claptrap from Borderlands, Sam from Sam & Max, and Ashley Williams from Army…

NVS Wargame - Ninja vs Samurai iPad Review

NVS Wargame - Ninja vs Samurai iPad Review

As brilliant as a concept may be, if the player can't access your game it's going to fall flat. NVS Wargame - Ninja vs Samurai is an online only strategy title that suffers from many quirks, but most crippling of all is the instability of the servers you're forced to play on. It's an odd decision on the part of the developer, especially as players can enjoy the single-player campaign without engaging in the multiplayer, however by pairing the two together (units and experience unlock…

Strategy & Tactics: World War II iPad Review

Strategy & Tactics: World War II iPad Review

Gamers who typically enjoy strategy titles invariably also enjoy the challenge that comes from seeing a mountain-sized burden of knowledge and conquering it to become masters of their virtual domain. Strategy & Tactics: World War II was once tied to the Hearts of Iron franchise - a series some strategy fans should recognize - and while the mobile title reduces the complexity significantly, it's no less opaque in its mechanics. In other words, be prepared to fail, and fail often as…

Dungeon Hearts iPad Review

Dungeon Hearts iPad Review

For a long while the three-match arcade puzzle mechanic concept slept in the back of the gaming consciousness, occasionally finding a sort of yawning, eye-squinting revival by being jammed in as an alternative to button mashing. Dungeon Hearts by Cube Roots and Devolver Digital could have easily slipped in to the same, rote (and boring) routine as those that have come before, but instead they offer an immediate and highly challenging experience. In a way you can think of Dungeon Heart…
