Kiko: The Last Totem Review

Review FABULAPPS By Andrew Nesvadba, 6 years, 1 month ago
Kiko: The Last Totem Review

I'm kind of weird in that I don't find a puzzle to be overly satisfying unless I feel like breaking something in half before inspiration strikes me and all is calm once again. Kiko: The Last Totem currently provides 150 chances to throw your iDevice in to a blender with its infuriatingly cute puzzles that can be shared with your friends, so at least they too can know your anguish. The aim of Kiko is to get Kiko and his friends to sit comfortably on their respective pads before the lev…

CAPCOM ARCADE Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 6 years, 1 month ago
CAPCOM ARCADE Review

If you spent any time at an arcade in the 80s or 90s or you have immense personal luck of having a classic arcade remaining open in your area, then you should already be familiar with the lineup of CAPCOM ARACDE as it sports a classic quartet of titles that are likely to have devoured your spare change in the past. Players can choose from four basic titles, opting to spend their in-game tokens on Street Fighter 2, Ghouls 'N Ghosts, 1942 or Commando. Three free tokens are handed out ev…

Zombie Racers Review

Review Big Head Games Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 6 years, 1 month ago
Zombie Racers Review

You've got your cars and they're meant for racing; and then you've got your zombies and they're meant for squishing; so it's only natural that in Zombie Racers by Big Head Games you'll spend your time squishing zombies as you race to the finish line. And you'd think this would be a fairly cut and dry title - racers aren't exactly rocket science and with that added sprinkling of zombies you have something interesting to use to mix up the races. However all is not as it seems and while…

Hungry Helga Review

Review Grid Monsters By Andrew Nesvadba, 6 years, 1 month ago
Hungry Helga Review

Hungry Helga is hungry, REALLY hungry and should you get on her bad side you're liable to find you, your ship and your crew sinking to the bottom of the ocean if you face her terrible wrath. Thankfully if you can keep Helga satiated she'll use her divine powers to make your job easier, but between gulls, sharks, icebergs and clever fish your work is not going to be simple. Players can tap the screen up to three times in a row to launch explosive charges in to the water, stunning the f…

Riddim Ribbon Review

Review Tapulous, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 6 years, 1 month ago
Riddim Ribbon Review

If you're a fan of rhythm games then it's hard not to have come across Tapulous and their Tap Tap Revenge series. However, the company has since decided to spread its wings and attempt something new and now players can try their side-project Riddim Ribbon without needing to listen to The Black Eyed Peas. Much like Tapulous' other basic packs this is a free title packaged with a few songs and access to a store with song packs to add to your collection. In this title you'll be presented…

Galaxy on Fire 2™ Review

Review FISHLABS By Andrew Nesvadba, 6 years, 1 month ago
Galaxy on Fire 2™ Review

UPDATE (17th Feb, 2012): With update after update pushing Galaxy on Fire 2 further and further forward, there's no question that this title represents the best the platform has to offer in the Privateer-style of games currently available. From its numerous tweaks including visual overhauls and content updates (with Valkyrie), you'd be hard pressed to find a better example of the genre for handheld devices. As such a score deserving of these updates has now been awarded to Galaxy on Fir…

Toyshop Adventures Review

Review Glu Games Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 6 years, 1 month ago
Toyshop Adventures Review

With the amount of physics based platformers on the App Store it seemed all but inevitable for a game to appear based on Little Big Planet. Toyshop Adventures by Glu is a freemium title where you'll explore various toy themed areas in order to reclaim the shop owner's lost marbles, making use of power-ups purchased with these marbles (or with your own cash) to reach the many hidden niches in each level. Toyshop Adventures doesn't mess around with the controls and players can move thei…

Angry Birds Seasons Review

Angry Birds Seasons Review

It's hard to argue against the popularity of a game like Angry Birds and with 195 levels to master it's a heck of a great purchase. However it seems odd that the Halloween special edition has been released separately and for the same price as the original you get less content with no real change to the formula. If you're already addicted to Angry Birds then you'll hardly need an introduction to the physics-based gameplay, however if you're one of the few iDevice owners that still hasn…

Attraxxion Review

Attraxxion Review

Physics based puzzles have become a fairly standard title on the App Store and trying to stand out isn't always easy, especially when some top selling titles have held the limelight for so long. Attraxxion by Runaway Creations takes a decidedly different direction with its puzzle gameplay and instead of flinging objects past or around planets or trying to smash down a building, you're tasked with creating planetary objects to fill your quota. That's right, you're a robot that has been…

Panzer Elite Review

Review EASY Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 6 years, 1 month ago
Panzer Elite Review

Did I miss the memo where 'Easy' now means 'keep restarting until you figure out what the developer intended'? Don't mistake Panzer Elite by EASY Inc. for the regular sort of castle defense titles out there as your goal isn't to merely crush your enemy, but to sit there countering his units until you max out your upgrade score and then win. This isn't exactly covered in the tutorial - which I might add is merely a help screen with a handful of screens highlighting interface elements t…

Last Minute Hero Review

Review Squax By Andrew Nesvadba, 6 years, 2 months ago
Last Minute Hero Review

I really want to like Last Minute Hero by Squax, so instead of a harsh verbal reprisal lets consider this a sort of love letter to a game that attempts to do something exciting and interesting, but ends up breaking my heart by never managing to finish what it started. You play as a girl, perhaps a cosplayer of some sort, stuck in a cordoned off area of the Shibuya Crossing that is being invaded by giant mutated spiders. So naturally you whip out your weapons of destruction and go to t…

Super Turbo Action Pig Review

Review Joystick Generals By Andrew Nesvadba, 6 years, 2 months ago
Super Turbo Action Pig Review

We're hitting up the archives today on request to review Super Turbo Action Pig (STAP) by Joystick Generals and while many of you may have already encountered this interesting side-scrolling arcade title, others may take pleasure in discovering something fun they may have missed. And STAP isn't lacking for fun at all, pitting your rocket-strapped pig against the evil Butcher Bill as he attempts to shred you apart with his collection of utensils. Tapping the giant button in the corner…

Crazy John Review

Crazy John Review

Sometimes, just sometimes I just can't let something like this slip by without comment. Crazy John by Triniti Interactive had some of the best potential to become a truly classic twin-stick shooter, but instead it chose to be a Minigore clone and ended up losing its way. The controls are standard for a twin-stick, with one stick used to move and the other to aim and shoot, while a small row of icons in the middle allow you to select your weapon of choice. Weapons vary in power and gen…

Circull Review

Review Tonic Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 6 years, 2 months ago
Circull Review

M. C. Escher is certainly one of the most easily recognizable artists of the 20th century thanks to his mathematically inspired, mind-bending images and in particular his pattern artwork is more than impressive. Circull by Tonic Games makes use of these Escher-like hyperbolic geometric patterns to create a three-match game that is visually impressive and a challenge to master. Thankfully the game has a relaxed tone, removing timers and other similar pressure based challenges that woul…

Be2 - Escape from Pingland Review

Review Kismik By Andrew Nesvadba, 6 years, 2 months ago
Be2 - Escape from Pingland Review

Be2 is a pixel and he's sick of being battered back and forth like a ball on a court for the rest of his electronic life. In 'Be2 - Escape from Pongland' by Kismik, you'll need to manipulate the acceleration of this pixel to navigate him through dastardly mazes and games he was never intended to be in as he quests for freedom from the video game world. In order to get Be2 around these various environments you'll need to impart added momentum to his movement as he constantly glides or…
