Acme Planetary Defense Review

Review Taptoon Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Acme Planetary Defense Review

When you stop and think about it for a moment, we humans must be colossal jerks. There's really no other reason that in so many games, TV shows and movies, our homeworld is under attack by a hostile alien force. Oh sure in Acme Planetary Defense, most of your time is spent knocking asteroids out of existence, but we're pretty sure that those asteroids are being lobbed by aliens. Not only cause nuclear missiles accompany them, but sometimes they rock up to pelt us with lasers, or just t…

Tower of Fortune Review

Review Game Stew By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Tower of Fortune Review

[This game was featured as the Mini-review for the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 18th of May, 2012] If there's one inevitable fact a gamer has to face up to when playing a dungeon-crawling RPG, it's that they'll eventually have to deal with the dreaded 'RNG' monster. For those not familiar with it, 'RNG' stands for 'Random Number Generator' and refers to the luck required to survive some encounters; to get certain items to drop; and so on. Tower of Fortune by Game Stew is bold in its u…

Pinch Peeps Review

Review Everplay By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Pinch Peeps Review

Simple can often mean better, especially with the iPhone's unique strengths when it comes to control schemes. Pinch Peeps is not what we would call a puzzle game, but more a hand-eye coordination tool for younger gamers, where the goal is to use your thumb and finger to pair up cute and colorful creatures for your place on the high score leaderboards. There are two game modes available; timed, and endless. In timed mode the goal is to create as many pairs as fast as possible to stay t…

Jake Escapes HD Review

Review Just Funny Games S.r.l. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Jake Escapes HD Review

Jake isn't very bright - sure, he's the world's greatest thief, but stealing ultra-secret technology from the Government never ends well. Now he's caught up in the shadowy world of spies, agents and super criminals as they attempt to claim what Jake has stolen, so now he has to escape... up the side of a building. It's a flimsy premise to justify having someone springing their way up the side of a building, but you can take or leave the story as you dive in to the shallow, yet briefly…

Frenzy Pop Review

Review S A Zahir By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Frenzy Pop Review

Frenzy Pop is a lot to drink in. In this review we're going to see what bubbles under the surface and if there's a great platformer here or if the whole thing just fizzes out. Continuing with these puns would definitely be the last straw so let's have a look at this soda themed game. The levels are what one may call snack sized. You need to get to the vending machine at the end as quickly as possible. The speed in which you reach it signifies whether you get a bronze, silver, or gold…

Inotia 4 Review

Review Com2uS USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Inotia 4 Review

As it is, and so shall it always be, given the fullness of time, yet another sequel to a somewhat popular KRPG series makes its way on to the App Store. Inotia 4: Assassin of Berkel by Com2us is the next on the chopping block, and it seemingly fails to learn from the past, instead seeking to exploit its free-to-play status. You are once again in the control of a teenager keen to prove himself (in this case as the 'virtuoso' of the Shadow Tribe) and you're thrown in to a 'whirlwind' st…

Saving Private Sheep 2 Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Saving Private Sheep 2 Review

Wolves eat sheep. Everybody knows this, but did you know that a well placed porcupine will cause a wolf to cough that sheep right back up no worse for wear? A sheepish general observed by luck this phenomenon and now armed with this knowledge, a platoon of sheep soldiers, slingshots, and a load of porcupines dedicated to the cause, it's time to wage war on the wolves and rescue as many wooly brethren as possible. In the vein of Angry Birds and the countless other games in the physics…

Escape from Age of Monsters Review

Review Ayopa Games LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Escape from Age of Monsters Review

'Escape from' is Ayopa Games and Massive Joe Studios latest addition to the 'Age of Monsters' franchise - a series that started off with a free Rock, Paper, Scissors game that introduced us to the world. Gizzard has been chosen by gauntlets infused with power enough to destroy the monsters rampaging around the city, but first he'll need to escape with children in-tow. The first thing that stands out about Escape is its presentation - on the latest iOS devices the game looks absolutely…

Ion Racer Review

Review MindJolt By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Ion Racer Review

Perhaps it's an unfair expectation, but upon hearing the title, we expected a sub-atomic racer where electrons and protons sped past each other, the winners gaining atomic and molecular supremacy. What we have is a free to play Wipeout-esque hover racer that plays out like an endless runner on an extended track to nowhere. With some manipulation of time and plenty of upgrades, lets see how this handles as a game. Control is standard iPhone racer fare. Tilting turns you left and right…

Cubis Creatures Review

Review FreshGames, LLC By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Cubis Creatures Review

While playing a trick on your furry friends, a spell was cast that put them all to sleep. How in the world can you wake someone up under a magic sleep spell (aside from smooching of course)? Well one way might be to complete level upon level of colored block busting action. And where does this block puzzler take place you ask? Why inside of the open mouths of our hapless sleeping victims of course. Sanitary Cubis Creatures is a variation on the match three block puzzle phenomenon. Tow…

Photon Review

Review Valhalla Studios Bifrost By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Photon Review

[This title is the Mini-Review for the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 27th of April, 2012] I recently caught up with some of the fine lads who work with the Australian developer Valhalla Studios Bifrost and it struck me as odd that I hadn't checked out their relatively recent arcade puzzle title, Photon. Sporting a Tron-like neon visual style, the gameplay itself takes its cues from the three-match genre. The game's catch is simple - tilting can jiggle around the orbs, allowing you acce…

Conceptis Fill-a-Pix Review

Review Conceptis Ltd. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Conceptis Fill-a-Pix Review

[Editor's Note: Apologies for the video being unavailable for so long - YouTube is currently updating their back end again and it seems some features are missing at this time. We've found a work-around for now and hope this won't be an issue again soon!] Earlier we reviewed Prismapix, a puzzle game where the player uses minesweeper-like clues to know what tiles are safe to uncover a picture on and which are not. That game was based on a simpler kind of logic puzzle, and that's exactly…

DevilDark: The Fallen Kingdom Review

DevilDark: The Fallen Kingdom Review

Despite their brutishly simple style, Action-RPGs remain steadfastly appealing; being able to dispatch hordes of enemies and then sifting through the chunky remains for useful items seems to push all the right kind of buttons for many gamers. DevilDark: The Fallen Kingdom by Triniti Interactive attempts to cash in on this simplicity, but it pulls its punch a little too much, making for a less than compelling title. While there are no specific classes, players can find themselves beati…

Sky Gnomes Review

Review Foursaken Media By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Sky Gnomes Review

When one thinks of gnomes the mind often wanders to those creepy all-too-happy garden statues strewn across your neighbor's yard. Who would have thought that they were dare-devils? OK, in fantasy it's long been known that gnomes like to tinker and invent contraptions, but if we are to believe Sky Gnomes by Foursaken Media, their favorite form of entertainment is to build racing machines that allow them to plummet from the sky as fast as gnome-nly possible.Sky Gnomes is an entirely mult…

Monster Takedown Review

Review Gameshrub By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Monster Takedown Review

Monster Takedown is a little confusing. The game starts with you picking from a list of humorous giant monsters. The monster of your choice in then plonked down in the middle of a hysterical metropolis and as the player you need to do all you can to protect the army from taking it down. The thing is you're protecting the monster, not trying to destroy it, and on top of that, it isn't really doing anything. It's just sitting there looking bewildered. Hey, those smoking skyscrapers might…
