Glorkian Warrior: Trials Of Glork Review

Review Pixeljam By Alex Beech, 9 months, 1 week ago
Glorkian Warrior: Trials Of Glork Review

There is a childlike joy to Glorkian Warrior: Trials Of Glork, the new game from Pixeljam. Its pink, three-eyed alien hero is the kind of creation you would expect to pour from the mind of a talented preschooler. This is no doubt due to the influence of James Kochalka, the award winning comic artist behind the game’s art. Everything about the game oozes comic book charm - from the challenges set by the two power-suit wearing sisters, to the backchat between the hero and his Super…

Smash Hit Review

Review Mediocre AB By Alex Beech, 9 months, 1 week ago
Smash Hit Review

If we had to invent a genre label for Smash Hit, we'd have to go with endless-shatterer. It's a fitting title for a game which involves flying unendingly forward through a world of glass, using marbles to shatter any obstacles in your path. This is harder than it sounds, however. Colliding with any object in the world sees you dropping ten of your marbles. Once they are all gone, it's game over. Thus selective and judicious hurling is what is required to successfully navigate fr…

Block Fortress: War Review

Review Foursaken Media By Alex Beech, 9 months, 2 weeks ago
Block Fortress: War Review

Block Fortress: War brings a new level of strategy to Foursaken Media's Block Fortress franchise. A mix of tower-defence, direct hero control, and resource management, it offers a wealth of tactical options. However, while the choices are plentiful, they can lead to unnecessary confusion. Block Fortress: War's complexity comes from how it weaves it mechanics together. No one feature is difficult to mangage in isolation. But to be competitive you have to master them all. Take the…

Demonrock: War of Ages Review

Review Crescent Moon Games By Alex Beech, 9 months, 2 weeks ago
Demonrock: War of Ages Review

On its surface Demonrock: War of Ages's isometric fantasy combat seems to ape classic dungeon crawlers like Diablo. Delve a little deeper, however, and you'll soon realise that this reverse tower defense game is far less broad in its scope. You are given a choice of four fighters. Two of these characters are unlocked, with the others available though IAP. Choosing which character to start with dramatically affects your experience – so making this initial selection esse…

Beyond Space Review

Review Bulkypix By Alex Beech, 9 months, 3 weeks ago
Beyond Space Review

The game which Beyond Space wants to be and the game which Beyond Space actually is are two entities light years apart. Developer Bulkypix clearly intended to make an expansive space drama filled with intergalactic and interpersonal conflict. What they actually made was a good space shooter, weighed down by an overly verbose story and horrible voice acting. Max Walker, the star of Space Beyond, is an unfortunate soul. Despite being a talented fighter pilot, he is the ugliest man…

Autumn Dynasty Warlords Review

Review Touch Dimensions By Alex Beech, 9 months, 3 weeks ago
Autumn Dynasty Warlords Review

There is a fine balance in strategy games between accessibility and depth. Make a game too easy and it won't hold your attention. Make it too deep and it becomes impenetrable to all but the most dedicated fans. Autumn Dynasty Warlords, from Touch Dimensions, strikes this balance perfectly. This is a particularly impressive feat, as even with the tutorial turned on, the game does little to hold your hand. Bar a few brief messages outlining the basic mechanics and interface, it leaves i…

Oquonie Review

Review David Mondou-Labbe By Alex Beech, 9 months, 4 weeks ago
Oquonie Review

Oquonie offers no introduction or explanation. It's developer has created a striking and unusual world filled with strange rules and bizarre creatures - but he has left it entirely up to you to make sense of them. You are dropped into a beautifully-drawn isometric environment. Your character looks like a strange, long-necked bird in smart trousers. With no clues as to how to proceed, you must tap and swipe the screen to explore the monochrome landscape. After you've run into a couple…

Bug Heroes 2 Review

Review Foursaken Media By Alex Beech, 9 months, 4 weeks ago
Bug Heroes 2 Review

While marshalling an army of insects may not be the Pentagon's idea of a winning combat strategy, it proves surprisingly effective - and entertaining - in the third-person multiplayer battler Bug Heroes 2. The premise of the game is straightforward: lead a two-man squad of tiny gun-toting insects into battle against approaching hordes of equally insectoid enemies. Before starting your first game, you randomly select a squad of two from the roster of 25 bugs, each of which have unique…

Card Wars - Adventure Time Review

Review Cartoon Network By Alex Beech, 10 months ago
Card Wars - Adventure Time Review

Cartoon Network has taken the inspiration for Card Wars – Adventure Time from a card game seen in the cult cartoon. But, while its reflexive self-referencing makes our heads hurt, it manages to be a fairly decent  customisable card game - with one major caveat. The basics will be familiar to CCG fans: you use cards to summon creatures to fight for you, in an effort to reduce your opponent's health to zero. The set up stage sees you laying terrain down across four lanes. Th…

Naughty Kitties Review

Naughty Kitties Review

If we had to describe Naughty Kitties in a pithy phrase, I guess we'd called it a 'tower-defence endless-flyer.'  And, by smushing these seemingly disconnected genres together, Coconut Island Games has created an exciting, fast-paced strategy title. As with all endless-style games, the goal of Naughty Kitties is to travel as far as possible to earn experience and climb the leaderboard. In Naughty Kitties however, you are asked not  to guide your avatar past obstacles, b…

FINAL FANTASY VI Review

FINAL FANTASY VI Review

In a world where magic no longer exists, a girl with hidden powers awakes. Pursued by enemies who would use her ancient skills for evil, she unites with a band of rebels, and finds herself fighting for her life - and the fate of the world - against the tyrannical reign of the Empire. So much has been written about Final Fantasy VI over the years that it's difficult to avoid retreading old ground when discussing it. However, considering its one of the most highly regarded RPGs ever mad…

LEGO® Star Wars™: Microfighters Review

Review Warner Bros. By Alex Beech, 10 months ago
LEGO® Star Wars™:  Microfighters Review

The latest Lego game to hit iOS, Lego Star Wars: Microfighters, tries to combine two massive properties -  Lego and Star Wars - in the form of a vertical shump. Despite the collective might of huge brands, however, Microfighters never manages to rise above the mundane. All of the game's craft are based on the Star Wars Microfighters toys, which appear as stylishly scaled down interpretations of the movie craft they represent. There are fleets of tiny A-Wings, AT AT-Battle Tanks,…

Bloodstroke Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Alex Beech, 10 months, 1 week ago
Bloodstroke Review

Doves, blood, and excessive violenge - director John Woo's fingerprints are all over Bloodstroke. But, while at first glance this new game from Chillingo seems to be relying on the famous director's name and a distinct visual style, it actually adds a lot of interesting twists of its own to the top-down shooter formula. Perhaps the most striking thing about Bloodstroke is its handsome watercolour visuals. This powerful art style uses strong black brush strokes on a white bac…

In Fear I Trust Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Alex Beech, 10 months, 1 week ago
In Fear I Trust Review

In many ways, Black Wing Foundations' take on survival horror ticks all the right boxes. Spooky institutional setting: check. Freaky sanity and fear effects: check. But at some point during the process of freaking us out, In Fear I Trust shifts from unnerving to frustrating. Waking on a rickety bed in a Russian prison asylum, the hero of the tale has no memory of the events that lead him there. The door to his cell is locked, but everything he needs to escape is dotted around the room…

Atomic Fusion: Particle Collider Review

Review Bytesized Studios Inc., By Alex Beech, 10 months, 4 weeks ago
Atomic Fusion: Particle Collider Review

There are few games that try to utilise the periodic table as a gameplay mechanic. Bytesized Studios has done just this, howeve,r with Atomic Fusion: Particle Collider, a collect-'em-up that mixes elements from Ikaruga, Osmos, and basic chemistry. Starting as tiny a hydrogen molecule, your aim is to build the little element up from Helium to Lithium, right the way  to Ununoctium, the largest theoretical element. To do this, you must gather positive and negative energy charge…
