Running Fred Review

Review Dedalord S.R.L. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Running Fred Review

Being on the front lines of App releases can make it hard to know what is currently sweeping up the market and as such I was surprised to find out that Temple Run had recently exploded. This is good news for Dedalord, the developer of the 'Fred' series as they explore the endless running option, albeit with far more tricks, traps and areas to master. The eternally unlucky Fred has found himself cursed to die at the hands of the Grim Reaper and to top things off, in his rush to escape,…

Sploosh Review

Review Spooky Moon Studio Limited By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
Sploosh Review

Sometimes it's nice to leave the adrenaline pumping, high speed, obstacle avoiding, death defying games for a while and play something with a slower pace. What's more relaxing than the ambient sounds of running water? And what if you had control over that water, tilting your iPhone around to pour it into the seeds of flowers and roots of trees to rehydrate the land? Well that's where Sploosh comes in. It seems sometimes cacti get a little too greedy and suck up all the water, sending f…

GHOST TRICK: Phantom Detective Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
GHOST TRICK: Phantom Detective Review

CAPCOM’s tenure on the iOS platform has been very hit or miss, with some games failing to live up to the grandeur of the original, while others almost outshine them. GHOST TRICK: Phantom Detective was arguably the unsung hero of 2011 for the Nintendo DS and thanks to a top-notch adaption, the iOS release also has an opportunity to shine. Sharing the same creative mind that developed the Ace Attorney series, Phantom Detective is no less madcap and outlandish. You play as Sissel,…

Toy Shot™ Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Toy Shot™ Review

Sometimes all you need for a good game idea is to take an existing game type and add something new to it. Toy Shot takes the flinging physics fun found in such games as Angry Birds and Crush the Castle, wraps it up it up in LEGO blocks and gives you the most unique aiming system we've seen in one of these games yet. Does it make it stand out from the pack however? The aiming system is a bulls-eye, and when you drag your finger out from it, you create a circle with a line. This stays p…

Urban Crime Review

Review Gameloft By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Urban Crime Review

Man what happened to you Gameloft? Over a year ago you were known for making polished quality titles. Sure the inspirations for these titles were lifted from other games, but they were developed with a high level of quality and were always enjoyable to play. Ever since you've switched to this freemium model, your releases have taken a drastic hit when it comes to all around polish, and Urban Crime is the latest offender. You start the game as a street thug with aspirations to climb to…

Fainting Goats Review

Review Two Guys Called Steve By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Fainting Goats Review

YouTube is the home of many things, be it pirated television shows, bold and stupid teenagers doing stunts, or the occasional viral video involving animals. If you haven't seen a video involving the famous 'fainting goats' then I heartily recommend checking one out, and for everyone else there's the iPhone game designed around this hereditary genetic disorder. Fainting Goats by Two Guys Called Steve is a cute and colorful 'puzzler' that places you in the role of what could only be cal…

Marathon 2: Durandal Review

Marathon 2: Durandal Review

Before the wildly popular Halo series, Bungie was in charge of developing some of the only good titles to play if you were a gamer and owned a Mac instead of a PC (no idea why this would be the case, but they did exist). The Marathon series was a Sci-fi FPS epic which really planted the seeds as to where this developer would eventually find itself. The 2nd installment in the Marathon series, Durandal is now available on the iPhone... for free! Let's take a look and see if a first perso…

Zombie Wonderland 2: Outta Time! Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Zombie Wonderland 2: Outta Time! Review

It seems the never ending thirst of the app store for zombie games rivals that of the undead's thirst for all things fleshy and brainy. In Zombie Wonderland 2, Chuck has found a way to rid his home of this slow shuffling menace once and for all, but to do so, he has to acquire some components for the good doctor at the museum. The small hitch being that most of these components are somewhere in time. Yup, zombies and time travel. Players of the original Zombie Wonderland will feel rig…

Hero Academy Review

Review Robot Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Hero Academy Review

If you've spent any time gaming on the PC or even major consoles it's hard not to have come across Orcs Must Die, Robot Entertainment's third-person take on tower defense gameplay. Now iOS gamers can experience a taste of the developer's whimsical sense of fun thanks to their free-to-download tactical title, Hero Academy. Part card game, part turn-based strategy, players pit themselves against opponents from around the world in asynchronous matches. As such you can take part in multip…

Seal Force Review

Seal Force Review

So who else always thinks of Steven Seagal with a black nose and flippers every time they hear the term Navy Seal? No one? Ah well. Seal Force is a highly trained amphibious unit tasked with stopping the evil mastermind Krillian from polluting the oceans. What's more, they launch their missions out of the mouth of a sperm whale. How's that for advanced? As the game begins, you think you're going to get an animated TV show version of Jetpack Joyride, and you'd be right in spirit. This…

Bloons 2 Review

Review Ninja Kiwi By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Bloons 2 Review

Everyone remember Bloons? No, not the popular tower defense game, the other one. You know, the monkey who uses darts to pop a series of balloons for no discernible reason? Well, it's been over two years and that game has finally gotten a sequel. For those of you who have been waiting for more primate popping pandemonium, let us tell you what the sequel has in store. Players of the original should feel quite at home, and new players should realize that the first title had such shortcom…

ZENONIA® 4 Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
ZENONIA® 4 Review

For those who have followed the Zenonia series from GAMEVIL, the best that could be said of each one is that they have learned from their previous iterations, tweaking and adding tiny features to remain competitive in the KRPG scene. Zenonia 4 represents a shift from this trend as it feels more like a broad summary of the previous titles while taking the game in a new direction by handing out the game for free. With this price-point comes some obvious changes, the largest being the sc…

Wind-up Knight Review

Review Robot Invader By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Wind-up Knight Review

Sometimes a developer can get so caught up in an idea that they'll let slide something as fundamental as ensuring the gameplay remains engaging just to keep a concept on board. Wind-up Knight by Robot Invader could very well have slipped in to this trap thanks to its clockwork protagonist, but not only does the idea make for a charming theme, it also makes for a compelling platformer. Born from the same school of thought that spawned titles like BIT.TRIP RUNNER, the clockwork knight y…

Foodie The Bug Review

Foodie The Bug Review

Foodie plans to travel the world. To make sure his energy levels are up he needs to constantly be snacking on multicolored jelly beans. With plenty of power-ups to boost him along and increase his intake, and an upgrade system to improve his abilities, can you help him reach his goal (which resides at the end of each level)? Upon first glance this looks like another slingshot physics game, but the flinging is only for launch. Once in the air Foodie hovers along with the iPhone being u…

Dungeon Hunter 3 Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Dungeon Hunter 3 Review

As a life-long gamer, sometimes it's hard to separate expectations of what a game should be from what a game can be. Allow me to clarify: Just because I expect a game to work a certain way, doesn't mean it should or indeed that it's the best way. With that said, despite still having many positive aspects, Dungeon Hunter 3 by Gameloft is a dangerous example of how many could come to see 'gaming'. iOS gamers will remember Dungeon Hunter as one of the premier Dungeon-Crawling Action-RPGs…
