Free 2 Die Review

Review Everplay By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Free 2 Die Review

At what point does homage become a rip off? Fans of the multiplayer zombie shooter Left 4 Dead might see more than a few resemblances in Everplay Interactive's Left2Die, from the name itself, to the ideas behind the special zombies. Aside from that though it plays a lot more like Alive 4 Ever, yet in copying the design of that game, has failed to latch on to what makes a fun twin-stick shooter zombie survival experience (hmm, that might just be another genre name in the making here).…

Jar on a Bar Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Jar on a Bar Review

It's sometimes really interesting what constitutes a genre on the app store. For instance, the physics puzzle genre has bloomed over the last couple years, and as such now has its own sub-genres, one of which Jar on a Bar is a part of. Let's call it the physics removal sub-genre. Like Finger Physics, the player has to remove objects from the screen in order to allow an item (in this case a fish stuck in its bowl) to safely descend to the welcoming ground below (so that the fish can hop…

Outwitters Review

Review One Man Left By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Outwitters Review

It's been a while since we've seen a release from One Man Left Studios. Years ago they released the fantastic Tilt to Live, and aside from updating that game with new modes and features, nothing else has surfaced... until now that is. Outwitters is a turn based strategy game that pits you against the rest of the internet in either 1v1 or 2v2 match-ups. You can play league games which pit you against players of the same skill level as you rank up; you can play against random opponents;…

Jay & Silent Bob in: Too Fat To Fly Review

Review Ice Cap Games, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Jay & Silent Bob in: Too Fat To Fly Review

[This mini-review was featured in our Friday News Wrap-Up for the 13th of July, 2012] Ahh the good old sling shot endless game - we meet again. At least this time the theme is one I can appreciate - Jay & Silent Bob. Sporting an appearance that bears more than a passing similarity to the ones used in the animated series, the mischievous duo are trying to see how far Bob can fly with the assistance of a large rubber-band gun and some firecrackers. Set an angle, let go and tap the…

Darkside™ Review

Review Clockwork Pixels By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Darkside™ Review

First and foremost when discussing Darkside by Clockwork Pixels, one has to commend the game for being a free title that's more akin to a demo than an opportunity to nickel and dime its players through in-app purchases. Downloading this twin-stick shooter will give you the arcade mode with limitless play, and for the price of ninety nine cents, you unlock the full game which includes two additional modes, and the use of screen clearing smart bombs. Whether you wish to spend the money o…

Magic 2013 iPad Review

Review Wizards of the Coast By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Magic 2013 iPad Review

I feel I would have to officially hand in my 'nerd card' if I ever lost the urge to want to play a casual game of Magic: The Gathering with my friends. Sure, some people are going to invest themselves more in the collectable card game than others, but all it takes is a pre-made deck and players looking to have fun and you'll find that the evening gleefully melts away. Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 by Stainless Games is the first installment of Wizards of the Coast's popular CCG to m…

Pinball Maniacs: Cartoon Pinball Adventure Review

Review Massive Finger By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Pinball Maniacs: Cartoon Pinball Adventure Review

Pinball Maniacs is a pinball game where getting a high score really isn't that important. Let that sink in for a minute. Yes there still is a high score recorded when play has ended, but you're not playing for points. You're playing for coins and rubies. You expect some of the design to shift when a game is freemium, but to shift pinball away from high scores? Well it's a bold move if nothing else. Let's explore further. You start with one table, the other being unlocked by rubies, wi…

Bank Job Review

Review Screwtape Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Bank Job Review

Aussie developer Screwtape Studios aren't exactly new to the iOS scene, but you'd be forgiven for thinking they'd been around for much longer considering the quality of Bank Job's presentation. While it may be a relatively basic endless auto-runner, there's an undeniable charm to Paulie Barbosa's thieving antics. Your job is that of scarpering off with as much loot as possible, while avoiding the many traps (and bombs) that line the corridors of the bank you're inside. The controls co…

Chasing Yello Review

Review Tactile Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Chasing Yello Review

Do you remember that horrific animal-destroying child from Pixar's Finding Nemo? Now imagine you're a fish living in the home of a similar child and you're presented with one opportunity for escape - the river just outside your window. Would you take it? Even if you knew there was a slim chance of survival? Is the risk worth it for freedom? Philosophy aside, you can help Yello in his attempt to escape the clutches of a crazy young-girl by dashing along a twisting and dangerous river-ra…

TheEndApp Review

Review POSSIBLE GAMES Kft. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
TheEndApp Review

If you're going to jump on a bandwagon, you may as well go large or go home. The End by Goroid certainly goes above and beyond, keeping in-tact the basic free-running fun of games like Temple Run while pairing it with a light story and unlockable power-ups that are tied to your skill, not just your patience in slowly accumulating cash. As a survivor of the end-days of humanity, your primary job is one of setting up a camp in order to survive. Duct tape has become a valuable resource,…

Max Astro: Stranded Beyond the Stars Review

Review Execution Unit Ltd. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Max Astro: Stranded Beyond the Stars Review

Max Astro: Stranded Beyond the Stars tells you everything you need to know about the game's story right in its title. Your name is Max Astro, pudgy space adventurer, and you have been stranded beyond the stars. To get back home you must traverse alien landscapes while odd block critters fall from above. These critters are the key to not only creating stepping stones to overcome large block towers, but they can destroy large towers blocking your path. Each screen of a level is its own…

DEAD TRIGGER Review

Review MADFINGER Games, a.s. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
DEAD TRIGGER Review

Zombies, guns, first-person perspective. It's a formula that's hard to mess up and MADFINGER Games certainly doesn't drop the ball with DEAD TRIGGER, a rote, level-by-level approach to shooting the undead with increasingly powerful weaponry. There is a story buried in here too, though you'd be forgiven for considering it mostly irrelevant as text boxes flood your screen after every story mission, only to unlock more story and side-missions to earn more cash and experience for bigger a…

Squids Wild West Review

Review The Game Bakers By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Squids Wild West Review

The Game Bakers are crafty developers - while you could consider Squids Wild West a sequel of sorts, it acts more like an expansion to the first title, albeit jam-packed with content, new characters, mechanics and... well OK, it's a sequel, just without the usual tacked-on number. Carrying on from the end of Squids, Steev, Vahime, Sammo and the rest of the crew end up at Seawood and are trying to find more heroes in the quest to stop the black-ooze slowly infesting and changing the cr…

Centipede®: Origins Review

Review Atari By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Centipede®: Origins Review

Centipede: Origins by Atari celebrates the classic Arcade shooter's 20th anniversary of its release on home consoles. As to be expected, the war between Gnomes and Bugs is now modernized thanks to the inclusion of purchasable power-ups and weapons, but better still, players can now engage their enemies in all-new locations complete with new gameplay features to keep you on your toes. For those not familiar with the original, you play as a gnome, firing your puny arrows against the inc…

Zombie Quest - Mastermind the hexes! Review

Review Pavel Tarabrin By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Zombie Quest - Mastermind the hexes! Review

We've seen a lot of games involving zombies in our tenure as reviewers, and most of them are pretty much the same. After all, the zombie is a great opponent in an action game. They're slow, there's a lot of them, and most importantly, they're not human. It's been a while since there's been a unique take on zombies in the app store, but Zombie Quest – Mastermind the Hexes most definitely fits that description. More a monster game than a zombie game, but what we have here is a stra…
