FINAL FANTASY VI Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By James Gilmour, 5 months, 1 week ago
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, 5 months, 1 week 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, 5 months, 2 weeks 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, 5 months, 2 weeks 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

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…


RHYTHM THIEF & the Paris Caper Review

RHYTHM THIEF & the Paris Caper Review

The game's story follows Raphael, a character who, despite his youth, is already a renowned thief. His father has suddenly disappeared under mysterious ciircumstances, leaving behind only a coin with a strange mark on it. Deciding his criminal skills can help him find his missing parent,…


Mega Jump 2 Review

Review Get Set Games By Alex Beech, 6 months, 1 week ago
Mega Jump 2 Review

Game development is all about making tweaks. A change here, an improvement there, and pretty soon a bare-bones idea is transformed into a stunning game. Thus, having already built a solid foundation with vertical platformer Mega Jump, you'd hope that Get Set Games could perfect is monster-centric take on the genre with the sequel. Mega Jump 2's tilt-based action is as responsive as ever, with you directing tiny hero Redford back-and-forth across the screen with subtle hand moveme…

Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project Review

Review Spawn Studios, Lda By Alex Beech, 6 months, 2 weeks ago
Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project Review

Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project has always been a game out of time. The original 2002 PC version was delayed by five years, by which time Duke's take on 80's action-movie stars was already D.O.A. Now, the iOS remake stands as a confused anachronism that struggles fit the mobile platform. Back in the da, Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project's use of 3D to create a 2.5D run-and-gun platformer was worthy of note. The problem is, that twelve years on, the same trick does little to impress. A…

Battle Supremacy Review

Review Atypical Games By James Gilmour, 6 months, 2 weeks ago
Battle Supremacy Review

Atypical Games and Revo Studios are probably best known for the historically-slanted Sky Gamblers flight sim series. For their latest foray into our recent and violent past, the developers have decided to try their hands at tank-based warfare in the WWII blaster Battle Supremacy. And, though it's not as deep or uncompromising as a full-blown tank sim, the game occupies arcade-shooter territory with a respectable degree of confidence. The campaign sees you trundling across France, Russ…

Feed Me Oil 2 Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Alex Beech, 6 months, 2 weeks ago
Feed Me Oil 2 Review

Holy Water Games's Feed Me Oil was a charming fluid dynamics puzzler that was conceptually simple but mechanically challenging. Now, the team has returned with Feed Me Oil 2, a title that manages to build on its predecessor with the simple addition of water. The goal in Feed Me Oil 2 is to transport oil from a nozzle to a creature's gaping maw. The black liquid spills from its spout with very little force however, so it is up to gravity, and a selection of well-placed tools,…

Cut the Rope 2 Review

Review ZeptoLab UK Limited By James Gilmour, 6 months, 3 weeks ago
Cut the Rope 2 Review

It's taken Om Nom four games to escape the confines of his various cardboard prisons, but Cut the Rope 2 finally sees him out in the wild, and making new friends. These extra characters and their unique abilities help to define Cut the Rope 2 as more ambitious puzzler with a slightly broader scope. However, the additional gameplay permutations - and new in-app purchase system - also run the risk of diluting the simple but potent formula which made the original game so compelling. The…

Jet Car Stunts 2 Review

Review True Axis By James Gilmour, 6 months, 3 weeks ago
Jet Car Stunts 2 Review

While there's no shortage of racers on the App Store, there aren't many which can claim to be as downright brutal as Jet Car Stunts 2. Like its 2009 predecessor, it's a game about precision. In fact, almost every other aspect of Jet Car Stunts 2 seems to have been streamlined to force players to zero-in on the game's unapologetically raw racing core. The visuals are clean, crisp, and simple, serving only to give you a strip of virtual tarmac to aim for. There is no background music, j…

Gravity Blocks - The Last Rotation Review

Review Max Gittel By Dave Flodine, 7 months, 1 week ago
Gravity Blocks - The Last Rotation Review

Meet the Gravity Blocks. There's the mint tea-obsessed Henry. There's Dr Zoidblock, who is working on a zombie vaccine. Blockman loves to recycle, while Blox gets a kick out of removing pesky wormholes. Each block appears in his own set of levels in Gravity Blocks: The Last Rotation, a block-puzzler which requires you to guide your square heroes to a goal by playing around with gravity. Usually you'll find yourself directing the lead block towards a dot on the screen. Other blocks als…


Walking Dead: The Game - Season 2 Review

Review Telltale Inc By James Gilmour, 7 months, 1 week ago
Walking Dead: The Game - Season 2 Review

The first episode of The Walking Dead: Season 2 pulls no punches. If you hoped there would be any light at the end of season one's dark and mouldering tunnel, then this short, sharp establishing act will brutally bash those hopes to death with a bloody rock. After former protagonist Lee's unfortunate exit from the series, his once ward Clementine has become something of a lone wolf. In this new episode, you control Clementine directly, helping her face everything from imminent starvat…

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Review

Review Rockstar Games By James Gilmour, 7 months, 1 week ago
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Review

With both Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City already available on the App Store, it was only a matter of time before Rockstar's first journey to San Andreas got the touchscreen treatment. Completing the PS2-era trilogy, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was the biggest and most ambitious sandbox Rockstar had ever created. This '90s flavoured tale of street gangs and turf warfare was an enormous game, both in terms of geography and scope. It offered players the chance to…
