Roller Polar Review

Review Nitrome By James Gilmour, 1 week, 5 days ago
Roller Polar Review

Dev studio Nitrome is making a bit of a name for itself. Landing on our radar last year with the excellently chilly physics puzzler Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage, the team has once again looked to arctic conditions as inspiration for its latest mobile game. This time its Roller Polar, a twitch game that all about leaping over rocks, trees, birds, and snowmen. Seriously - don't get us started on the snowmen. Pocket Gamer's Harry Slater explains why you should really consider giving fros…

oh my giraffe Review

Review Nico Prins By James Gilmour, 1 week, 6 days ago
oh my giraffe Review

I think it's safe to say that we've all had our fill of endless-runners. However, we recommend you don't write of the entire genre before trying oh my giraffe, the extremely daft but surprisingly enjoyable savanna-based sprinter starring a giraffe with the most flexible neck in Africa. Harry Slater reviewed the game for Pocket Gamer. Check out the video to hear his verdict.…

Crimsonland HD Review

Review 10tons Ltd By James Gilmour, 1 month ago
Crimsonland HD Review

Giant spiders. Zombie lurkers. Weird greed lizard men that look like they've escaped from a particularly cheap and wonky episode of Doctor Who. You'll find all these creatures and more in the iOS port of decade-old twin-stick shooter Crimsonland. And yes, you'll get to shoot them all with a variety of weird and wonderful weapons. Check out the carnage in Crimsonland HD video review above.…

Electronic Super Joy: Groove City Review

Electronic Super Joy: Groove City Review

Lo-fi platformers may be all the rage, but developers still have a tough time making the formula work on touchscreen devices. Thank goodness for Electronic Super Joy: Groove City, then, a twitchy, brash, and brutal side-scroller which is as interested in silly asides and pop culture nods as it is in sadism. To learn more, direct your eyes to the video above.…

Skullduggery! Review

Review ClutchPlay Games By James Gilmour, 2 months, 1 week 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…

Anomaly Defenders Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By James Gilmour, 2 months, 2 weeks ago
Anomaly Defenders Review

The Anomaly series made a name for itself by reversing the standard tower defence formula, and putting you in charge of the advancing force you usually find yourself repelling. However, for Anomaly Defenders, the final entry in the series, the studio has reversed its own genre reversal, ending its tower offence saga with a normal tower defence game. Has the move unlocked a new dimension to the sci-fi combat favourite, or is Anomaly Defenders one reversal too many? Pocket Gamer's Harr…

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.…

CounterSpy™ Review

CounterSpy™ Review

Whether you're crawing around under a cardbox box in Metal Gear Solid, or straddling a hallway while an unsuspecting guard strolls beneath your crotch in Splinter Cell, there's nothing quite like a good stealth game. Counterspy is a cartoon love letter to espionage thrillers and cold war unease. This side-scrolling roguelike casts you as a secret agent trying to infiltrate a military base and prevent the imminent launch of a Soviet nuke. As Pocket Gamer's Giles Armstrong found, the i…

Modern Combat 5: Blackout Review

Review Gameloft By James Gilmour, 5 months 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…

Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake Review

Review Cartoon Network By Alex Beech, 5 months, 3 weeks ago
Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake Review

It was great being a kid. We could talk to our dog in the street without people thinking were crazy, and on our birthday we could eat cake for breakfast without feeling guilty. Its this sense of wonder and delight that Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake instantly awakens - except, as the name suggests, there will be no cake because monsters have stolen it. Taking control of a young boy named Niko, you follow your trusty dachshund Bazooka in search of your missing cake. The innocent story s…

Review Get Set Games By Alex Beech, 5 months, 3 weeks ago
Storm Casters Review

You're lost and alone in a forest. Your village has been destroyed. A wizard appears before you. Granting you magic powers to claim your revenge, the robed figure then points you in the direction of the village-ravaging monster's lair, the aptly named Skull Keep. Within the keep, you are thrown directly into Storm Casters's no nonsense dungeon crawling. A responsive virtual stick guides your hero, with a fire button letting you cast spells at the nearest available target. This si…

World of Tanks Blitz Review

Review Wargaming.net By Alex Beech, 5 months, 3 weeks ago
World of Tanks Blitz Review

At its most reductive, World of Tank Blitz is a modern interpretation of the Atari classic Combat. But this mobile instalment the of tank-based arena warfare behemoth bring flair - and considerate monetisation - to the formula. A quick tutorial teaches you nuances of manoeuvring your metal death-machine using the virtual stick, buttons, and various drop down menus. It is a familiar system, but one made unique thanks to your tanks methodical pace and cumbersome turning circle. Th…

UMAI! Review

Review Konstantin Kopka By Alex Beech, 5 months, 4 weeks ago
UMAI! Review

Like a good plate of sashimi, Umai! understands that less is more. This sushi-munching puzzler has you controlling a monster's tongue as it tries to eat its way through a conveyer belt of fishy treats. You begin by selecting one of five peckish creatures. Each has a unique pixel art design that sits somewhere on a spectrum between distressing and wonderful. Once you've chosen, you are instantly surrounded by twelve plates of sushi. You control your hungry beast's frog-like tongue wit…

Powerpuff Girls: Defenders of Townsville Review

Review Cartoon Network By Alex Beech, 6 months ago
Powerpuff Girls: Defenders of Townsville Review

From the moment Powerpuff Girls: Defenders of Townsville starts it shows a clear love of its source material. The first choice the game has you make is between two different visual and audio treatments for the girls: one that matches the original series, and one for their new CGI interpretation. While this has no impact on gameplay, it shows a respect for the fans, letting them enjoy their favorite version of the heroes. The action begins when the evil monkey Mojo Jojo lures the…
