Snowboard Hero Review

Review FISHLABS By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 1 month ago
Snowboard Hero Review

Has snowboarding ever not been a fairly cool sport to enjoy? For one, you're essentially surfing on snow, but with the added bonus of being able to grind rails and perform crazy stunts much like a skateboarder. It's hard to be unimpressed by the antics of truly talented snowboarders and the sport has found itself the subject of many arcade sports titles including the latest title from FISHLABS, Snowboard Hero. After choosing from one of the four currently available characters, players…

Death Rally Review

Death Rally Review

While gamers are likely to recognize and associate Remedy Entertainment with titles like Max Payne and Alan Wake, those who were lucky enough to be a PC gamer in the 90's might remember the original Death Rally and its top-down Death Race 2000 inspired mayhem. While not as fully featured as some racers, the arcade-style classic has been reborn on the App Store and players can get back to what's truly important in a race - blowing people up. However, before you can start causing some r…

Twinflix 2 FREE Review

Review Franco Mellerio By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 2 months ago
Twinflix 2 FREE Review

Twinflix: The Falling Blocks Puzzle by Franco Mellerio is exactly what you think it is (another Tetris-like), but instead of focusing on replicating the single-player experience you'll find yourself constantly competing against opponents, be it an AI or another player around the world. Given the twin-display of the game, you'll be locked in to a portrait layout with the controls arranged in the center along your next block display. Instead of a single rotate button, two directional bu…

Pig Rockets Review

Pig Rockets Review

What does rocket fuel, Tetris, bacon and the castle defense genre have in common? More times than not I'd say they don't really have anything in common, but if you're playing Pig Rockets by Camigo Media you'd be surprised at just how relevant they all are. Wave after wave of rocket-controlled piggies are attempting to blow up your house, barn, dog-house, mansion (and so on) and you'll need to put your Tetris skills to work in order to create barriers that will crush their advance. Gro…

Space Bunnies Review

Review ShockPanda Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 2 months ago
Space Bunnies Review

Bunnies are by their very nature an extremely cute species - sure we could get in to how we as humans are conditioned to various forms of 'cuteness', but damn it I just like bunnies, leave me alone! Space Bunnies follows the adventures of a race of alien bunnies who for reasons unknown are green and look like Gir in his dog-suit from Invader Zim, but I digress... they need to find a new home and you'll need to fly their ship of cuddles and rainbows across the universe in search of a st…

Circuloid Brick Breaker Review

Review Macoscope sp. z o.o. By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 3 months ago
Circuloid Brick Breaker Review

Take one circle, add paddles around it and insert a few bricks and a ball - it sounds simple enough, but 'Circuloid' by Macroscope is a unique take on the typical brick-breaking gameplay and by no means an easy game to master. Several control variants are available, including simple swipes and tilt controls, though no matter what you choose the real skill is in keeping track of your ball (or balls depending on power-ups) while also keeping your paddles aligned around the play area. Va…

6th Planet Review

Review Monkube Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 3 months ago
6th Planet Review

It takes a lot of confidence to revive a classic type of gameplay like 'Lander' with the intent of creating a compelling video game, but Monkube have managed to pull it off, though I suspect the incredible artistic talent backing the project certainly helped. '6th Planet' follows the journey of a space-module confined monkey bound for Saturn as he attempts to avoid dangerous hazards while conserving enough fuel to make it to each subsequent base. You're only given two controls to mane…

Falling Fred Review

Review Dedalord S.R.L. By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 3 months ago
Falling Fred Review

Fred... well Fred is a bit of a dingus; I mean honestly... who keeps jumping down a blade and spike filled corridor expecting something different? Fred, that's who. You can try to keep this thick-skulled cretin alive for as long as possible in Falling Fred by Dedalord, however you're ultimately destined to fail, so why not tear off a few limbs while you're at it? Falling Fred is definitely not for the feint of heart as blood is prone to spray around regularly, but if you're doing your…

Shadow Era TCG Review

Review Kyle Poole By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 3 months ago
Shadow Era TCG Review

Don't be fooled by its outward appearance as a free game - Shadow Era, much like any Trading Card Game (TCG) is designed to suck you in and trap you until you've emptied your pockets, your spare time and maybe even your friends. OK sure, I'm being melodramatic and not everyone is going to become obsessed about a new TCG, but basing the gameplay on something as popular as the World of Warcraft TCG and making it free is sure to snag a few people. Like most TCGs the gameplay revolves aro…

Buddy Rush ® Review

Review Company 100 Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 3 months ago
Buddy Rush ® Review

Freemium titles, or more specifically, games that implement some form of play restriction can get a bad rap, especially if the game harshly limits the time you can play as an incentive to spend money. Adding a social twist via Facebook only seeks to reinforce the habit (and knock the competitive aspect up a notch) and it's easy to feel a bit skeptical about new similar titles, especially if you've been burned in the past. Buddy Rush by Company 100 takes this free game model and attach…

RoboSockets: Link Me Up Review

Review Tatem Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 3 months ago
RoboSockets: Link Me Up Review

At first, RoboSockets by Tatem Games may look like another typical three-match game, but you'd be wrong as layering similar robots together won't guarantee a match. Shades of Tetris might also be pointed out, but you'd also be wrong because completing rows won't get you anywhere either. If any title has inspired this quirky arcade-puzzler it's Pipe Mania and you'll need to screw your thinking cap on tight if you want to complete this game. The basic controls are not unlike related arc…

Starfront: Collision™ FREE Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 3 months ago
Starfront: Collision™ FREE Review

Please Note: Due to Gameloft's new release system, the title is only free as a 'demo' with an in-app purchase unlocking the rest of the content. This does require an internet connection of some kind for your device, however given that this requires 3rd Gen or higher iOS device, this should be available in one form or another. The current release price is US$6.99 - please adjust accordingly for your region and be aware that sales/updates could affect this pricing regularly. As a genre,…

Hungry Shark - Part 3 Review

Review Future Games of London By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 3 months ago
Hungry Shark - Part 3 Review

Future Games of London have placed Hungry Shark back up for a third spin on the App Store and for those already familiar with this vicious free-roaming title you now have a chance to take on an evil genius in his secret lair. Where the first release had its moments of fun, it was ultimately fairly short and limited in its scope. Part 3 goes a long way to resolve this problem by providing a much larger area to play with and challenging obstacles to overcome in order to get there. Cont…

Crystal Soul Review

Review HuaXu Culture Creative By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 3 months ago
Crystal Soul Review

It was only a matter of time before someone else decided to emulate the gameplay of Bloody Fun Day by Urban Squall, but the dismal conversion to the App Store left the doors wide open for someone else to exploit. Crystal Soul by HuaXu Culture Creative is a new take on this turn-based puzzler concept, though those unfamiliar with its source material may find themselves out of their depth. Each of the 20 currently available levels presents players with a set of objectives to complete be…

Reiner Knizia's Yoku-Gami Review

Review Meritum Soft d.o.o. By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 3 months ago
Reiner Knizia's Yoku-Gami Review

With plenty of board games already under his belt, Reiner Knizia has turned his hand at producing a simpler puzzle game for the App Store. Yoku-Gami is the result of this collaboration with developer Meritum Soft and you'll need to put your math-hats on to make headway in this puzzler. Whether you choose the Endless, Arcade or Level mode, the basic gameplay remains the same. Players are presented with a 6x6 grid filled with numbers and to clear them off the board you'll need to select…
