Ion Racer Review

Review MindJolt By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 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, 5 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, 5 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…

Review Conceptis Ltd. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 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…

Shark Dash Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Shark Dash Review

After first learning about Shark Dash, one thought pinged around my mind, 'I wonder who developed this game for Chillingo/Clickgamer'... after a double-take I realized I was dealing with a Gameloft title and my world promptly fell on its head. All of this may sound melodramatic, but gamers have long come to terms with the App Store's cliches, though if Shark Dash proves anything it's that Gameloft has the chops to produce fresh and addictive games. You should know the basic formula by…

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, 6 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, 6 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…

Saturday Morning RPG Review

Review Joystick Labs, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Saturday Morning RPG Review

It's easy to feel conflicted about Saturday Morning RPG by Joystick Labs and Mighty Rabbit Studios - in particular, it wears its inspirations on its sleeve and proudly waves a joyous flag in support of all things classically cartoonish from the 80s. While you don't need a first-hand crash-course in pop-culture to enjoy its offerings, without them it's that much harder to ignore its flaws. However, lets start out with the good: the first chapter is entirely free to play - you're at no…

Rinth Island Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Rinth Island Review

When discussing a puzzle game, there's something we often forget to mention - almost a caveat of sorts. While some people happily avoid the genre entirely, those that do enjoy the odd brain-twister can be fickle and no matter the praise a game receives, it will forever remain unappealing to them. Rinth Island by Buzz Monkey and Chillingo is not immune from such fickleness, but while it's possible to find some aspects of the game unappealing, it provides such a huge amount of varied con…

Cordy Sky Review

Review SilverTree Media By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Cordy Sky Review

There was a time when endless vertical jumpers roamed the App Store like an apex predator, devouring the spare change of those who came near them. It certainly helped that titles like Doodle Jump provided regular content updates, mixing things up and providing an ever-more-complex challenge in the process. Now it's much harder for a game in the genre to stand out, but Cordy Sky by SilverTree Media has gone for a triple-threat whammy of making their game look gorgeous; providing simple,…

Rune Raiders Review

Review Retro64 By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
Rune Raiders Review

The title of Rune Raiders is misleading. You're not raiding runes. You're not even raiding ruins. This is a dungeon crawler... well kinda. Think of a grid based table top game like Hero Quest, and then put that into videogame form, except there are no dice roles, you control the entire party, and some of the banter between your group members is quite humorous. The comparison to table top dungeon crawlers was made due to your party members and all the enemies being represented by what…

Bitter Sam Review

Review Moon Active By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Bitter Sam Review

Bitter Sam by Moon Active seems to be desperate to defy conventions - its main character seems manically depressed, there's no three-star system in sight, and the almost morbid way in which you can fail a level is a shock the first few times it occurs. And yet, despite this, Bitter Sam is unabashedly cute, funny and fun. Sam's life apparently wasn't doing so well even before a scientist captured and decided to drop him down a deep hole. He'll need to avoid spiked platforms, spinning b…

Hunger Games: Girl on Fire Review

Review Lions Gate Films Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
Hunger Games: Girl on Fire Review

[This mini-review was featured in our Friday News Wrap-Up for the 23rd of March, 2012] As mentioned when we originally announced the Hunger Games game for iOS, I have to admit my complete ignorance of the teen novel and its recent movie adaption. Still, a fun game is a fun game and when so many well-known game developers come together to collaborate the end result is bound to be polished if nothing else. Quite simply, the game is an endless runner featuring Katniss as she explores the…
