Zombie Farm Review

Review Playforge Games LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Zombie Farm Review

While it may be a little late to the party, Zombie Farm by Playforge combines two hugely popular concepts in gaming in to one package that's amusing, addictive and surprisingly cute in its execution. Most of your farming duties can be performed through a menu driven system, however a handy "smart" pointer takes most of the need to directly navigate them. Tapping on fresh turf or recently harvested soil will automatically plow the land, while tapping on plowed land brings up the market…

Sorter Review

Review Albert Omoss By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Sorter Review

A game's addictiveness is often hard to truly quantify as what might be addictive at one moment can quickly become boring in the next moment. Sorter by Albert Omoss almost skips this conundrum by making a game based around sorting colored bombs that can put players in to an almost zen-like state as they furiously swipe the screen to the thumping soundtrack. Gameplay is extremely simple: Drag and drop colored bombs to the correct bay before they explode. The iPhone's incredible selecti…

Ninjatown: Trees Of Doom! Review

Ninjatown: Trees Of Doom! Review

It all started with 'Wee Ninja', a tiny character designed by former EGM editor Shawn Smith. Thanks to developer Venan Entertainment the concept quickly blossomed in to 'Ninjatown', a tower-defense game for the Nintendo DS. Venan are no strangers to the iPhone and instead of another tower-defense game, their latest game 'Ninjatown: Trees Of Doom!' switches things up as an endless vertical jumper. Trees Of Doom takes a minimalistic approach to the controls, using a single-finger contro…

Dogs Playing Poker Review

Review Candywriter, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Dogs Playing Poker Review

It's such a simple idea, but Dogs Playing Poker could easily have been a hard one to stomach thanks to C. M. Coolidge's paintings holding a dubious position in pop culture and its assorted ephemera. Thankfully instead of some tacky attempt at cashing in on a pop reference Dogs Playing Poker by Candywriter is probably one of the friendliest and certainly furriest Texas Hold'em games for the iPhone. The tutorial is simply brilliant and gives players a chance to not only learn the game's…

Solomon's Keep Review

Review Raptisoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Solomon's Keep Review

It's dark, it's dank, it's full of undead hordes and it's going to be your graduating exam. Solomon's Keep by Raptisoft is a twin-stick action RPG that boils down the Diablo style of gameplay in to a fun and highly addictive App for your iPhone. Exploring the heights of Solomon's Keep is easy, with standard twin-stick controls to control movement and firing your selected spell. Initially movement and firing can be slow and awkward, but as you progress and level up your character gains…

Hungry Shark - Part 2 Review

Review Future Games of London By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Hungry Shark - Part 2 Review

I'm not ashamed to say that I grew up as a SEGA kid and one of my favorite experiences during the 90's had to be the Ecco the Dolphin series. Hungry Shark by Future Games of London puts you in place of a ravenous shark and while you may be twisting and diving your way around the depths of the sea like Ecco, you're not out to save sea-life... you're out to devour it. Virtual pads and buttons are thrown out the window as Hungry Shark uses the accelerometer to give you fine control over…

Tiptop Review

Review On5 By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Tiptop Review

In what could be the first of a series of games from developer On5, 'Tiptop: the last march.' is a Lemmings-inspired game that's married with pop-culture to create a challenging and (at times) tongue-in-cheek experience that's hard to put down. In order to assist your heroes lines can be drawn on to the level, providing a path for them to walk on or as barriers against enemies. Much like other line-drawing games, you're given a limited amount of 'ink' to use with drawn lines only stay…

Stickbound FREE! Review

Review Gamenauts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Stickbound FREE! Review

Stickbound by Gamenauts is a tough nut to crack. Using a completely unique style of horizontal endless gameplay based on pole-vaulting your way across surreal landscapes, it's simultaneously one of the most frustrating, yet positively addictive games to play. All that you require to make your way forward is your wits and well timed taps. By tapping on the screen you extend a pole from your character to the ground, pushing yourself further away. Careful timing can spring you high up or…

Chrome-8 Review

Chrome-8 Review

Chrome-8 by Far East Asia Development is a pure puzzle experience. This isn't the kind of game that appeals to many people, but anyone who has enjoyed games like PathPix will enjoy the simple challenge that Chrome-8 provides. Each puzzle represents a web of links used to shift the colored orbs on screen. Your goal is to align the colors in such a way that no two colors are linked. This sounds murderously difficult, but two game modes (and a total of 300 puzzles) are available to warm…

ABOVE Review

Review Axolot By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
ABOVE Review

Simplicity in game design can work. It's stating the obvious, but it's worth remembering when some games stack on feature after feature to make a basic idea look better. ABOVE by Axolot is another take on the endless vertical gameplay that combines simple gameplay with amazing artwork for a game that's sublime to enjoy. On your endless quest to the stars the only control you require is a simple tap and hold to jump. The longer you hold, the higher you jump. The uncomplicated scheme re…

AirBear Review

Review Origin8 By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
AirBear Review

'How far can you get?' games are quite popular. You can load them up, try and beat your high score and be on your merry way. Airbear by Origin8 Technolgies tries to combine the reach the stars gameplay of games like Doodle Jump, with trampolines. If you're playing through the Homeward Bound mode, there are also puzzle pieces in each area to collect that will unlock the bear's propeller hat. Control takes some time to get used to, and even then it can be frustrating. Trampolines are cr…

Hired Gun Review

Hired Gun Review

Are you restless and twitchy, perhaps you think the world moves too slowly? Then Hired Gun by Triniti Interactive is the game for you. iSniper has tread this ground before, but unless you have excellent perception and spider like reflexes Hired Gun can quickly become an exercise in frustration. After you're given your target for the randomly picked level you'll need to immediately find a way to slow down time like you're in the Matrix. Random people will pass along streets, in front o…

Burple Fish : The Burping Free Falling Action Game Review

Review Russ Kumro By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Burple Fish : The Burping Free Falling Action Game Review

Clowns, whatever you're position on them as entertainers, are typically associated with fairly surreal situations. If you could slip in to the dreams of a clown after a big successful show near the seaside, you might just find a resemblance to Russ Kumro's latest App, Burple Fish. Should you be fascinated enough to delve in to the halls of madness, you'll be confronted by a simple premise: Get your fish to the ocean without him exploding from built up 'gas'. As you fall from the sky y…

Dinosaur Slayer Review

Review D&D Dream Corp. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
Dinosaur Slayer Review

Dinosaur Slayer by Project Soul wants nothing more than to crush you. Players will find this game quite literally hit-or-miss. Bow-defense fans will get a great new challenge while new players to the genre will find the controls much more forgiving to learn. For most levels there's not a lot out of the ordinary from a standard bow-defense game. Each 'stage' consists of wave after wave of enemies, each with their own quirk to defend against. Arrows are fired by touching the screen to s…

My Brute Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
My Brute Review

My Brute is a combat and levellng game in the same genre as games like Mafia Wars. You create a character and academy, and then fight other real opponents around the world to level up, and achieve new techniques and weapons. Like Mafia Wars, you only have a certain number of fights you can engage in each day, but can purchase the ability to play more via ingame DLC. The game is pretty much on auto pilot. The fights themselves are taken care of via the computer and all you can do is wa…
