Solitaire Blitz Review

Review PopCap By Dave Flodine, 11 months, 4 weeks ago
Solitaire Blitz Review

It's been a while since we've seen something from Popcap Games. Once having a reputation for casual yet fiercely addictive titles, many of which received praise from the mainstream gaming media, the company's output has been kind of sparse and quiet these last few years. Well it seems they're still with us having released Solitaire Blitz, a spin on the Windows gaming classic that emphasises social play and leaderboards. Yes, solitaire as a social game. The irony wasn't lost on us eithe…


Garden of Fear Review

Review smuttlewerk interactive By Dave Flodine, 11 months, 4 weeks ago
Garden of Fear Review

Garden of Fear has a warning on its iTunes page. It cautions people who are scared easily from playing this game. Full disclosure, Dave cannot handle scary games. He's fine with horror films, but there's something about controlling the character involved in a horror scenario instead of just watching it that makes things all too real. For this reason, he tends to stay away from horror titles, and either as a cruel joke or just by providence, is given this game to review. You wake up in…


R.I.P. Rally Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 11 months, 4 weeks ago
R.I.P. Rally Review

RIP Rally is an arena combat game where you drive around a rally car with a turret mounted machine gun, ploughing down and shooting waves of zombies, trying to survive for as long as possible while completing missions, collecting coins, and refilling your health and ammo reserves. If that already sounds like a good time, you don't need the rest of this review, but for those of you unconvinced or on the fence, let's explore this freemium title. Essentially the game plays like a twin-st…

HEAVY - sword Review

Review ashley jackson By Dave Flodine, 11 months, 4 weeks ago
HEAVY - sword Review

  Heavy Sword is a very classic soft of platformer. As the unlikely hero Pike, you must combat evil hordes in order to rescue the captured princess Lucinda. To aid you as you traipse through level after level is a trusty sword, as well as the ability to bash power-up blocks with your head, and the ability to stomp on top of all your foes. Yes, this game borrows many ideas from the platforming greats. Does this make it a copycat game or does it use these elements to create somethi…

Bottle Cap Blitz Review

Bottle Cap Blitz Review

Now usually games like Bottle Cap Blitz can be easy to discount. They're very simple premises (even more simple than when a game here is praised for being simple), they're high score games, and they offer brief gameplay bursts with a small dose of progression to keep people enthralled. There's nothing wrong with this formula. Games like Paper Toss were able to use its simple premise and mechanics to make something fiendishly addictive, and funnily enough Bottle Cap Blitz is in the same…


Mr. Crab Review

Mr. Crab Review

Everything old is new again thanks to the iOS platform, and while the rotating-tower platformer is certainly not a new one, Mr. Crab manages to bring a breath of fresh air to the dusty concept. And hey, not everyone is an ancient curmudgeon like me, so party on you crazy kids. Speaking of party, prepare to get your hat-head ready as Mr. Crab has a penchant for noggin-covers. This is more of an aside, but as Dave has mentioned before, gamers love their hats - it's a mystery for the age…

Cling! Review

Cling! Review

Instead of a platformer, Cling is amusingly referred to as a 'pegformer', and this is as accurate a description as any. As a capsule toy in a vending machine, you get stuck on your way to the hands of a small child, and now your squid-y tendrils must navigate the pegs, clear the hazards, and reach the end of each stage safely. There are two control schemes that you can switch between with a simple shake of your iPhone. The first is a system where by touching the screen in the directio…

Dream Chaser Review

Dream Chaser Review

With so many endless runners, it relieves us game reviewers when we see a new idea brought to the table, as small a change as it may be. What can stand to infuriate us more than just an average entry into this genre is if the change ends being to the detriment of the whole experience. That's where we find ourselves with Dream Chaser, an endless runner that while having an endless mode also includes a story mode, where the mechanics and intricacies of the game are spread out alongside a…

Dungeon Hunter 4 [First Impressions] Review

Dungeon Hunter 4 [First Impressions] Review

[Editor's Note: Although we've had two days with Dungeon Hunter 4, the nature of the freemium gameplay makes it hard to give a full assessment (thanks in part to the multiplayer proving difficult to test). It should also be noted we made a $5 gem pack purchase; we will highlight how this has affected our time with the game.] There are moments when I regret my final decision after reviewing a game - Dungeon Hunter 3 has haunted me to this day and managed to get a free pass based on its…

Injustice: Gods Among Us Review

Injustice: Gods Among Us Review

I have to admit, I like the idea of a company taking the time to whet the appetite of their fans by providing a portable version of a title they're yet to release. We saw it back at the release of Mass Effect 3, and now we're seeing it again with Injustice: Gods Among Us from Warner Bros. Of course any expectations of such a title being brought over in full, or at least as a complete brawler (albeit with a lowered roster ala Street Fighter's iOS releases) have been completely shot dow…

Robi: Cosmic Savior Review

Review GramGames By Dave Flodine, 1 year ago
Robi: Cosmic Savior Review

In a lot of these planetary defense games, there's a real sense of scope and responsibility. You're responsible for the continued existence of a planet beset either by aliens or asteroids (or alien controlled asteroids). Robi: Cosmic Saviour takes a more relaxed approach... in theory. His size plus the layout of the planet makes you think that this little robot lives peacefully out on some small moon, but his home is constantly under siege by space monsters. This is where the peaceful…

[UPDATED] Nimble Quest Review

[UPDATED] Nimble Quest Review

When it comes to the freemium model, Nimblebit are one of the better developers at offering unique and interesting game experiences with a no cash up front policy, and thankfully their games aren't too inundated with in-app purchases or wasting your time as a gamer. Their latest effort Nimble Quest takes the foundation of the ever popular mobile experience, Snake, and turns it into a simple roleplaying game, albeit one that is more interested in lining up heroes than leveling one up (a…

Sorted! Review

Sorted! Review

Sorted! by Mighty Kingdom finds itself falling in to that niche category of time-wasters that can best be described as 'micro games'. If you've ever played a WarioWare game you'll know what I'm talking about - you're presented with a rapid-fire series of screens where you have to figure out and succeed at the 'game' placed before you in a matter of seconds. However, unlike WarioWare, Sorted! sticks to one game, and while it does vary things up, the game feels limited and lacks a hook t…

[UPDATE] Order & Chaos Duels - Trading Card Game Review

Review Gameloft By Dave Flodine, 1 year ago
[UPDATE] Order & Chaos Duels - Trading Card Game Review

[Editor's Note: After further gameplay testing we've noted several points in the campaign where the AI is provided with what can only be described as severly imbalanced abilities and decks. These will act as roadblocks preventing progression, though the exact placing of said roadblocks will depend on your character and their deck/abilities. Sadly it comes down to luck as to whether you'll draw better than your opponent in these cases and it would be good to see the pogression evened ou…

Smash the Office Review

Smash the Office Review

If you've seen Office Space, then you'll know about its famous (or is that infamous?) printer smashing scene. It's a cathartic scene, especially if you've spent any extended amount of time in an office environment, but what if you could take things even further than the printer? Smash the Office isn't a title that seeks to ensconce players in a deep and thoughtful world. No, you get 60 seconds to smash up everything you can in an effort to score points and earn coins so you can do it a…
