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…

Grow Dammit! iPad Review

Review Poio By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
Grow Dammit! iPad Review

Editor's Note: We apologize for any confusion - Grow Dammit! has been given a rating of 3/5 on our system (3.4 actual) and did not intend for a '0/5' to be showing. Once again, the title is very competent and we can only hope it gets the attention it deserves! I find it surprising that despite there being almost a three year period since Helsing's Fire was released on the App Store, few (if any) developers have tried to replicate its light and shadow puzzle mechanics. Penumbear manage…

Little Inferno iPad Review

Little Inferno iPad Review

Call me crazy, but I was saving myself for the iPad release of Tomorrow Corporation's 'Little Inferno', as such I can't provide much of a comparison to the console or PC versions. What I can say is that Little Inferno feels as though it was always destined for the iOS platform - it was conceptually _made_ for the IAP heavy, freemium dominant scene that is the App Store. In short, Little Inferno is champion the platform deserves, even if it doesn't need it specifically. The game starts…

A Wonderland Story HD iPad Review

Review Josh Presseisen By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
A Wonderland Story HD iPad Review

It's all well-and-good that Alice gets a story about her adventures in Wonderland, but what of the White Rabbit? It's bad enough that he's late for his meeting, but having a bunny obsessed girl chasing after him isn't helping things along either, especially considering the wonky terrain. A Wonderland Story by Forest Moon Games and Alchemy Games has you helping the rabbit along his way by moving the ground so he can keep walking forward, hopefully avoiding its many inhabitants in the pr…

Splice : Tree of Life iPad Review

Review Cipher Prime Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
Splice : Tree of Life iPad Review

Much like Mother Nature, Splice : Tree of Life is unforgiving in its relentless brutality. You’re popped in to a universe almost without any concept of what you’re meant to do and while you can find some help, it won’t do you any good until you can understand it. Cipher Prime Studios capture this vicious elegance in their cell-splicing puzzler and you’ll need to ponder and experiment to make any headway. First and foremost, Splice is a beautifully presented gam…

King's Bounty: Legions iPad Review

Review NIVAL, INC. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
King's Bounty: Legions iPad Review

While it's hard to complain about the price of freemium games, the content is often questionable and reliant on gating players towards its paid-for features, arguably by devious means. There are many exceptions to many rules and King's Bounty: Legions is just such a game. Either playable on the PC through Facebook or via iOS on your iPad, it's a scaled down version of the popular turn-based tactical title that retains the combat and trades resource management for crafting and 'energy'.…

Dominion HD iPad Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 11 months ago
Dominion HD iPad Review

One of the iPad's greatest successes has been opening up the potential for table-top games to go digital, making it easy for multiple players to play on a tabletop or pass around. Dominion HD is Chillingo's latest iPad game and a direct adaption of the classic strategic board game Risk. All of the game's controls are menu driven and features a comprehensive tutorial not only to teach you the controls but also run you through your first match as you learn the game's rules. Dominion is…

Babylonian Twins HD Premium iPad Review

Review AppBarbecue Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 11 months ago
Babylonian Twins HD Premium iPad Review

Almost everyone has a friend they know that owned an Amiga during the 90's and I just happened to be 'that guy' for all of my friends. I'd extoll the virtues of its amazing graphics and the unique games that blossomed from classic developers like Bullfrog, System 3 or Team 17, but they'd look at me funny and go back to their SNES or text-based adventure games on the PC. Babylonian Twins comes from three developers who started developing a game for the Amiga in the early 90's and after…

Extreme Sheepdog Trials HD Edition iPad Review

Review Green Custard Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 11 months ago
Extreme Sheepdog Trials HD Edition iPad Review

Extreme Sheepdog Trials HD Edition is the iPad version of UK based developer Green Custard's take on shepherding for iDevices and 'extreme' couldn't be more appropriate as your sheepdog goes from paddock to spaceship in an effort to keep those sheep under control. There are three major control schemes available, with the drawing controls being the easiest to initially try out. Players can direct their dog with taps or drawing paths and herds can be followed by tapping on groups, while…

Azkend HD iPad Review

Azkend HD iPad Review

Azkend HD brings 10tons' beautiful puzzler to the iPad along with even more stunning visual upgrades. As with most iPad 'remakes' there's not a lot of difference between the iPhone original and its 'bigger' iPad version, but small gameplay tweaks gives Azkend another breath of fresh-air that might sway those yet to be convinced. Azkend is essentially another match-3 game with a twist. Instead of swapping tiles, players must manipulate the board by drawing paths along the hexagonal gri…

Aurora Feint 3 iPad Review

Aurora Feint 3 iPad Review

If your idea of fun involves trudging around and getting involved in random match-3 based puzzles, then you might find Aurora Feint 3 to be right up your alley. That is - of course - only if that's all you're interested in. As a continuation of their popular series and Danielle Cassley and Jason Citron's first release for the iPad, Aurora Feint 3's beauty only goes skin deep. Much like the previous titles, battling opponents is performed using their unique match-3 system. Tiles can be…

Flight Control HD iPad Review

Flight Control HD iPad Review

If you've not played Flight Control by Firemint, then you might be missing out on a neat product that helped to define how line-drawing management games should feel. Thanks to the larger screen of the iPad, mastering this management game couldn't be easier and there's even a few new features to keep things interesting. For those not familiar with the gameplay, Flight Control throws you in the place of a air-traffic controller with several landing strips to manage. As aircraft enter th…
