Solomon's Boneyard Review

Review Raptisoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Solomon's Boneyard Review

I'm honestly a bit lost for words; when Raptisoft decided to turn their excellent dungeon crawler Solomon's Keep in to a straight twin-stick shooter I wasn't sure what to think. However if you had any interest in the original title then 'Solomon's Boneyard' is almost a guaranteed must try... I think I'm already have withdrawals just writing this review. Ok ok, melodrama aside this title cuts back on the crawling and focuses on some of the best aspects of their original title. In this…

XAGON. Review

Review Sudden Creations By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
XAGON. Review

XAGON. by Sudden Creations might be a little familiar for some, especially if you've played the recently released title 'Flipstones'. However, instead of going for a flashy and at times unforgiving style of gameplay, XAGON strips things down to the basics and players will need to either make matches as fast as possible, or with the minimum amount of moves to score it big. Swapping only requires a quick swipe, but they can only be switched one at a time, making the Strategy and Arcade…

Spark It Up Review

Review sumiguchi By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Spark It Up Review

In Spark It Up by Sumiguchi you'll take part in a magical fireworks show, setting off each rocket while creating what could only be vaguely described as music in the process. Each of the game's six currently available levels features a unique sound track that is used in combination with touching the screen to generate musical sound. With each pass of the Lumines-esque bar across the screen you'll need to swipe or tap every rocket on screen to set them off and earn points. If three roc…

Assault Commando Review

Review 3D Magic Kft. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Assault Commando Review

What would you do if you were in a jungle with a swag of guns, tasked with a vague mission of taking out a world-domineering madman all the while dealing with a chronic psychological disorder where you must dispense a one-liner after almost every action you make? Why you'd saddle up and blow everything up to pieces 'cause you're playing Assault Commando by 3D Magic. The game's control system isn't anything too out of the ordinary, with a basic virtual stick and various buttons for wea…

Coastal Super-Combat Review

Coastal Super-Combat Review

Coastal Super-Combat by Triniti Interactive is yet another weapon-based defense title to add to the pile, but it has been some time since we've tried one of these games so lets see if anything new has cropped up. The controls definitely fall under the heading of 'if it's not broke, don't fix it' which means that players will need to drag and around their cross-hairs to aim each weapon while firing with another button and tilting to pan across the game field. After each level you'll be…

Squish The Zombies Review

Review AQSystem By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Squish The Zombies Review

It's incredibly odd to get two games so similar to each other to review like this in one day, but at least it's also a great opportunity to see what does and doesn't work (at least for me) in games with similar concepts and different executions. Squish The Zombies by AQSystem is another game where you get to tilt and aim an ever increasing ball of snow as it cleanses the hillside of a zombie plague and unsightly houses. There are only two modes to choose from and in Arcade mode you'll…

Zombie Highway Review

Review Auxbrain, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Zombie Highway Review

Zombie Highway by Renderpaz is an endless arcade title of sorts that packs an interesting twist. Instead of merely dodging traps and enemies you'll have to weave your way down an endless highway littered with debris, scraping zombies off the sides of your vehicle as they jump on. It's the combination and balance of the game's mechanics that make this a deceptively simple game. While it's easy enough to dodge debris, you'll have to purposefully tilt your way against them to deal damage…

Donut Ninja - Tappi Bear Review

Review Taplay Limited By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Donut Ninja - Tappi Bear Review

Donut Ninja is the third in a current series of four available games by Taplay in the 'Tappi Bear' series of mini-games and I thought I'd give you the low-down on at least one of these titles as they're an interesting experience to say the least. All of the games in this series keep things extremely simple, requiring only one to two taps to play and in Donut Ninja it's your job to feed the incoming waves of attacking ninja bears with donuts before they attack. The game essentially fee…

MapleStory Thief Edition Review

Review NEXON MOBILE By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
MapleStory Thief Edition Review

Ahh MapleStory - I lost a weekend of my life to your promises of fun beat'em-up platforming only to realize I didn't have the stamina to endlessly grind away all of my spare time. Sadly the free PC MMO has infiltrated the App Store and threatened to consume my life again and I must delve in to MapleStory Thief Edition in order to warn you, our readers/viewers of the dangers within. MapleStory has always had a fairly simple platforming design and translating the gameplay to the App Sto…

Jaws™ Review

Review Fuse Powered Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Jaws™ Review

Is there a new Jaws film I haven't heard about or is Universal studios just after a quick bite of the App Store market? Either way we now have an official Jaws game to play thanks to Bytemark Games, so lets get down to business. You get to play the role of the poor overworked Police Chief Martin Brody in this summer blockbuster re-imagining and you need to keep the swimmers of Amity safe from the irrationally angry and perpetually hungry shark that is Jaws. To do so you'll need to dir…

Bumps Review

Review Utopian Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Bumps Review

In Bumps by Utopian Games you'll need to free your fellow orbs after being abducted by an alien race looking for a tasty meal. You'll need to bounce or 'bump' your way to freedom in the 54 currently available levels, making use of a simple, but extremely clever physics system that rewards careful timing and positioning to unlock your friends from their delicious fate. For most of the puzzles all you have to do is drag the available small orbs around the screen before hitting the 'go'…

Angry Bunny: Ninja Revenge Review

Review Ran Zhang By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Angry Bunny: Ninja Revenge Review

It's unfortunate to see another game developer taking the short-track for their latest release, but 'Angry Bunny: Ninja Revenge' by Ran Zhang takes the well established Doodle Jump style of vertical endless gameplay and tacks on a few variations in order to give it a unique flavor. This isn't entirely successful though as jumping can feel somewhat erratic, with your ninja bunny vaulting past several platforms in one moment and just barely scraping by to the next level in the next. How…


NinJump Review

Review Backflip Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
NinJump Review

Much like the recent Tunnel Shoot, NinJump is a surprising change of pace for the developer Backflip Studios and a welcome addition to the endless vertical jumping titles on the App Store.  Instead of the usual passive jumping your ninja will run flat-out up the walls, switching sides with a simple tap. In this way the game feels much like a horizontal runner, however your ninja isn't without some unique tricks and if you time your jumps you can dispatch enemies as you flail your…

Tetra3D - A 3D Game Review

Review GeniApps By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Tetra3D - A 3D Game Review

One of my favorite games on the Amiga was a simple clone of Tetris set in a 3D environment, Blockout. Various iterations have occurred down the line, but 'Tetra3D - A 3D Game' by GeniApps is one of the first I've seen for the App Store. Unlike other 3D-Tetris variants, Tetra3D is set in an isometric view which presents a few problems, the first of which is a blocked point of view while the blocks fall. Thankfully the game corrects this flaw by allowing the block to hover above the 3D…

Sailor Dog Review

Review Andreas Johansson By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Sailor Dog Review

If you told me to try playing a game about a dog bouncing on the back of a swan in an origami-styled theme I'd have looked at you funny, then said 'yes', if only out of sheer curiosity. In Sailor Dog by Andreas Johansson you'll be bouncing around the ocean collecting balloon suspended bones while dodging catfish and other creatures out to sink your adventure. The basic gameplay is not unlike a vertical endless jumper, with your dog bouncing off the swan's head and anything else he can…
