Bubble Witch Saga 2 Review

Review King.com Limited By Alex Beech, 4 months, 2 weeks ago
Bubble Witch Saga 2 Review

At first glance it would be easy to accuse social gaming giant King of resting on its laurels with Bubble Witch Saga 2. Dig deeper, however, and you find that the orb-launching match-three formula has received a tweak or two for its second outing. The most obvious change is the improved visual design. Gone are the moody stills of three hag-like witches, replaced instead by vivid backgrounds and the cheerful Stella, who looks a bit like Barbie in a pointy hat. While the new visuals po…

Sky Force 2014 Review

Review Infinite Dreams Inc. By Alex Beech, 4 months, 2 weeks ago
Sky Force 2014 Review

The original Sky Force came out on mobile devices in 2004. It was a great looking mobile game for its day, and fantastic shooter to boot. Now, a decade later, Sky Force 2014 is looking to do the same again with the benefit of modern tech. Sky Force 2014 retains the tight shmup combat and  vertically scrolling levels of the original. As before, you must attack approaching targets, while trying to avoid the halestorm of bullets the game throws at you. A responsive one-to-one contr…

Rival Knights Review

Review Gameloft By Alex Beech, 4 months, 2 weeks ago
Rival Knights Review

There aren't many medieval sport simulators on App Store. Enter Rival Knights, a game which casts you as a lowly knight who must battle his way through the noble jousting leagues to earn riches and status. Matches begin with you stirring your steed into action. Once charging down the lane, you must build up speed. Spurring on your horse is achieved by the act of stopping a marker on target as it scrolls back and forth along a meter. The final stage of combat has you drop you…

Drawn to Life Review

Review 505 Games (US), Inc. By Alex Beech, 4 months, 3 weeks ago
Drawn to Life Review

Drawn to Life was a originally released back in 2007 on DS. It was based around the tantalising idea of letting you draw characters and items directly into a game world. Seven years on, the game has now made its way on to the App Store. All this port delivers, however, is proof that some things are best left in the past. Despite the fact that creation is the the game's main hook, it is a limited mechanic. Each of your creations must conform to a specific size and shape, limiting your…

Battleheart Legacy Review

Review Mika Mobile, Inc. By Alex Beech, 4 months, 3 weeks ago
Battleheart Legacy Review

RPG control systems can be complex. It's impressive, then, to find an RPG title as fully featured as Battleheart Legacy that that lets you access its vast range of mechanics with simple, single taps. Its a good thing the controls are so intuitive, too, because the game offers little in the way of a tutorial. You are shown the basics of how to navigate the world and defend yourself. Touching anywhere on screen will set you on your way, while tapping on an enemy will allow you lock-on a…

Hyper Square Review

Review TEAM SIGNAL, LLC By Alex Beech, 4 months, 4 weeks ago
Hyper Square Review

Remember those shape sorter toys you had as a kid? The ones where you had to squeeze shaped blocks through similarly-shaped holes? Hyper Square is essentially an amped-up, caffiene addled version of the same toy. Instead of manipulating wooden shapes, however, you're swiping, re-sizing, and spinnimh digital squares into virtual targets. These mechanics are introduced one at a time. First, the game asks you to simply drag or fling squares towards their goal with the swipe of a fin…

OTTTD iPad Review

Review SMG Studio By Alex Beech, 5 months 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…

dEXTRIS Review

Review Chaotic Box By Alex Beech, 5 months, 1 week ago
dEXTRIS Review

Dextris is twitch gaming distilled down to its purest form. Controlling two neon coloured blocks in unison, your simple task is to dodge left and right as you rocket endlessly upwards through its vertically-scrolling course. By default, the pink and blue squares you command sit happily in the middle of the screen. Holding the right side of the screen causes both blocks to shoot rapidly to the right and grind their way up the wall. Hold the left side, and you'll get the opposite result…

SOULCALIBUR Unbreakable Soul Review

Review BANDAI NAMCO Games Inc. By Alex Beech, 5 months, 2 weeks ago
SOULCALIBUR Unbreakable Soul Review

Soulcalibur Unbreakable Soul is an odd instalment in the Soulcalibur franchise. This mobile, free-to-play game abandons the weapons-based arcade combat for which the series is famous, and instead focuses on the stories of its colourful cast to form the foundation for a collectible card game. In Unbreakable Soul’s defence, the CCG elements have been fairly well though out. You have a deck that can hold three fighter cards, each of which is assigned three weapon card. Each ch…

Warhammer 40,000: Carnage Review

Review Roadhouse Games Ltd. By Alex Beech, 5 months, 2 weeks ago
Warhammer 40,000: Carnage Review

Within the 40K universe, Space Marines are walking tanks. If you are being invaded by hundreds of Orks, all you need is one of the Emperor’s finest to hold back the storm. This is exactly the feeling Warhammer 40,000: Carnage attempts to deliver. Rather than commanding a squad. you take control of a single Ultramarine ploughing through waves of Orks. Armed with only a bolt pistol and a combat knife you set out to find Captain Tychaeus, a space marine champion that has falle…

METAL SLUG DEFENSE Review

Review SNK PLAYMORE By Alex Beech, 5 months, 2 weeks ago
METAL SLUG DEFENSE Review

When we think Metal Slug, our minds turn to classic arcade side-scroller action. What we don’t think of is the tower defense genre. However, that is precisely the catagory which SNK Playmore's new free-to-play title Metal Slug Defense falls into. That's not to say that there isn't some crossover between the classic games and this new enterprise. Creating a 2D side-scrolling tower defense title has allowed the developer to lift art straight from previous Metal Slug games. Th…

Republique Review

Review Camouflaj LLC By Alex Beech, 5 months, 2 weeks ago
Republique Review

République begins abruptly with you receiving a call from the panicked hero, Hope. Trapped in a totalitarian state, the young girl longs for freedom. Believing that you are her last chance of escape, Hope asks you to use your hacking skills to manipulate the city’s electronics to help free her. It is a strange take on the stealth genre, that has you leading Hope remotely through the oppressive world. The 1984-inspired fiction sees the walls covered with surveillance camer…

AngerForce - Strikers Review

Review Screambox By Alex Beech, 5 months, 3 weeks ago
AngerForce - Strikers Review

If you have ever played a shmup then AngerForce - Strikers will hold few surprises. It's a familiar story: a series of vertically-scrolling levels which have you tracing your craft's path a halestorm of bullets, trying to destroy any enemies in your way. AngerForce you offers three characters to choose from, each with their own special attacks. Which you select will be dependent on your play style, with characters like the robot offering powerful laser attacks that do huge d…

Wayward Souls Review

Review Rocketcat Games By Alex Beech, 5 months, 4 weeks ago
Wayward Souls Review

In theory, games with procedurally generated levels can offer an eternity of gameplay. For this near endless resource to be worth tapping, however, the journey has to be worth revisiting.  The moment we stepping into the cruel and unforgiving world of Wayward Souls, we felt oddly at home. Its top-down 2D perspective gives the game a classic 16-bit RPG look, while the brutal permadeath runs and persistent leveling underscore the game's roguelike heratige. Wayward Souls embraces th…

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Review

Review Gameloft By Alex Beech, 6 months ago
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Review

With a great licence comes a great chance of disappointment. And, we'll admit, before even firing up the game, we were prepared to be underwhelmed by The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  Things got off to a shaky start. Gameloft has squeezed an overwhelming amount into its latest movie tie-in, so within moments we were expected to have come to grips with the game’s virtual stick, buttons, and touch controls. These, along with a camera that could barely keep up with the action, c…
