Random Heroes Review

Review Ravenous Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Random Heroes Review

[This mini-review is featured on the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 17th of August, 2012] After the wild success of League of Evil it's no surprise to see Ravenous Games attempting to recapture that perfect balance of gaming joy once again. Pairing up with Woblyware for another Flash-to-iOS release, Random Heroes may be a platformer, but it's less of a game about high scores and more akin to the old-skool games we saw pumped out by studios during the 80s and 90s. As the name suggests pl…

Review Lake Effect Applications By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Trigger Fist Review

It's a surprise more effort hasn't been placed in to creating the next-best multiplayer shooter for mobile and handheld devices, especially considering their popularity on the PC and Console. Titles such as Modern Combat have gone a long way in picking up the slack, but now and then you crave something simpler; something more immediate, and Trigger Fist by Lake Effect Applications fills this niche perfectly. First impressions matter and it's not hard to get a classic Counter Strike ty…

PITFALL!™ Review

PITFALL!™ Review

For something like a 30th Anniversary you'd think Pitfall would be given a much larger 'hurrah' - the game has gone through differing types of 'remakes' over the years, but now the game has been reduce to an auto-runner. Don't get me wrong, it's a perfect match and ultimately works in Pitfall's favor, but with so many competitors it ran the risk of slipping under the radar. I guess that's the power of a name like Pitfall for a company like Activision - you just can't help but bring at…

Commando Jack Review

Review Colossal Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 12 months ago
Commando Jack Review

It seems that the tower defense genre has been sort of played out for the last couple of years. Oh yes new games come out that add something interesting to the formula, and games come out that remind us why the genre became so popular to begin with, but it's only in the last year or so we've seen an evolutionary shift in tower defense, and what's more is that this shift is so simple, it's amazing not many developers thought of it before. I am of course talking about allowing the player…

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 12 months ago
SolaRola Review

I know what you're thinking. It's a game where you roll around. That much you have spot on. However, contrary to what may be going through your head, you are not rolling around a jazz musician or a creature powered by sunlight. No, this is the story of Wiz and Waz, intrepid space explorers who find themselves crashed on an alien world, and have to find the necessary parts to get home, and then  continue their jobs of exploration, collection, and eventually saving the galaxy. Now…

Agent Dash Review

Review Full Fat By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years ago
Agent Dash Review

Full Fat's repertoire of games is full of rebuilt concepts; while we may have seen and loved the archetypes they take their inspiration from, the new spin or polished design makes it worth playing. Agent Dash is no different, taking cues from the long-popular Temple Run series, just don't expect each run to be an epic dash - an agent's job isn't easy and neither is this game. You can expect to be caught out and remain almost unaware of what happened thanks to two features of the game…

Walking Dead: The Game Review

Walking Dead: The Game Review

For those who have been waiting for Telltale Games' iOS version of The Walking Dead, the wait was not entirely in vain. I could lie and say that nothing has been lost in the translation from console/PC to handheld device, but it would be a lie, though its ultimate impact on the story and experience is minimal, making it a must-try adventure game. Although based on the comic franchise, the story follows Lee - a convicted killer who is given a second chance after surviving a 'walker' at…

Traffic Panic London Review

Review Neon Play By Dave Flodine, 3 years ago
Traffic Panic London Review

Not having traveled yet to England, I do have to wonder how bad the traffic really is. I mean someone has gone and made a game where you control traffic light switches to create order and shuffle through as many cars as possible unharmed, but if a crash does happen, well then there's as much mayhem as your little tapping fingers and heart could ever desire. It's very rare that a game comes along where its lose state is inherently more enjoyable than the game itself, but that's exactly…

Super Knights Review

Super Knights Review

Frequenters of our site may have come to recognize my proclivity for puns. With that being said, based on name alone Knights of the Round Cable sounded like a game to look forward to playing. Three hundred and sixty degree swinging in order to collect gems and fling around stages like a knighted pinball? What's not to love? Will the relationship even last past the engagement? Let's stop with the horrid metaphors and find out! The game starts with your knight falling from the sky befor…

Dance Fever Review

Dance Fever Review

Rhythm games have always been at a disadvantage on the iPhone. While home consoles allow a player to live out their rock and roll fantasies with Rock Band, or dance up a storm with DDR, the swipe and tap inputs of the mobile device just can't compete with these unique control methods. That's not to say rhythm games haven't been enjoyable on the iPhone (or other handheld devices), it's just that you really need to design a simple and elegant system to allow the player to interact with t…

Free 2 Die Review

Review Everplay By Dave Flodine, 3 years 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

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, 3 years 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

[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

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…
