ZENONIA® 4 Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 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, 8 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, 8 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…

Six-Guns Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Six-Guns Review

At times its hard to know whether or not a game is meant to be taken seriously, or if it's just an elaborate piece of satire meant to be enjoyed sardonically. Six-Guns by Gameloft treads a fine-line where the developer's usual penchant for emulation is almost completely derailed by its experimental 'freemium' model of gameplay, making it perhaps the best offering in this classification while simultaneously providing very little in the way of meaningful gameplay. Freemium games have co…

Raccoon Rising Review

Review Romper Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 8 months ago
Raccoon Rising Review

A game is definitely more than the sum of its parts, yet especially in reviews, we tend to evaluate certain areas separately. For instance in Raccoon Rising, a reviewer might be completely blown away by the detailed art and clever use of 3d in the visuals, but totally be put off by the mechanics of the game itself. With your home being attacked by robots, it's time to put those ninja raccoon powers to use. The gameplay revolves around vertical climbing. Tapping the screen will send yo…

Road Warrior Racing Multiplayer - by Top Free Apps and Games Review

Review Top Free Apps and Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Road Warrior Racing Multiplayer - by Top Free Apps and Games Review

Mobjoy has two hills to fight up against when a reviewer such as myself tackles a game called 'Road Warrior'. Firstly you're invoking a movie series (even if it's unintentional) that has long since entered the pop-culture zeitgeist as a cult classic, secondly I'm an Australian, making said cult classic all the more precious. So with this in mind, does a free side-scrolling racer have the goods to match up to such high expectations? OK, so this is a bit unfair, but the game's post-apoc…

Zen Pinball Review

Review ZEN Studios Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Zen Pinball Review

I'm seriously having flashbacks here - as a child of the 80s and a self-admitted video game nerd, the local video arcades were a veritable haven for me. While pinball games were never my forte, there was a distinct magical allure that came from the newer generation of fancy and complex titles that tried to capture the essence of a franchise, typified by the introduction of Midway's classic Addams Family pinball table. These memories are distinct and powerful, which is why I was surpris…

Major Mayhem Review

Review [adult swim] By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
Major Mayhem Review

Ninjas are attacking and they've taken your girlfriend somehow. That's the premise of Adult Swim's latest foray into mobile gaming. As Major Mayhem, you need to travel deep into the heart of enemy territory and slaughter hundreds of ninjas mercilessly to make the world safer... and for booty. The game has sort of a Time Crisis / Operation Wolf vibe to it. You run from cover to cover and you pop out to mow down ninjas. Your gun is fired by tapping the screen where you want to shoot, an…

W.E.L.D.E.R. Review

Review Ayopa Games LLC By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
W.E.L.D.E.R. Review

Being a welder of words admittedly sounds rather poncy. However, there's no better explanation for the task set upon you in... 'W.E.L.D.E.R.'. Luckily swapping tiles to create words is a lot of fun, and thanks to some interesting little gameplay additions, a rather unique experience among word and puzzle games is to be had. The core of the game is a mix of Bejeweled and Scrabble. Tiles can be swapped horizontally, vertically, and diagonally to create words of four letters or more. The…

Snoopy’s Street Fair Review

Snoopy’s Street Fair Review

I have to confess that I've somewhat wilfully ignored much of what is on TV for the last decade, that is to say, I own a TV, but much of what I watch is thanks to DVDs or the snippets I inevitably see now and then. As such I've lost touch on a pivotal annual classic that is the inevitable re-run of the Peanuts shows and movies. I go in to this review with the assumption that you have grown up with or know about this cartoon world to some degree. Beeline Interactive arguably succeeded…

Sea Stars Review

Review Hothead Games Inc. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
Sea Stars Review

If you were to believe a certain catchy Disney song from the early 90s, you would think that things are much better under the sea. After a few minutes playing Sea Stars, you'd definitely be giving the argument some thought. There's something about the colors, the gliding mechanics and the collectables and upgrades that make this game just a joy to play. Control as well as the style of game is similar to Tiny Wings. Pressing down on the screen gives you weight, plunging you to the bott…

Bullet Time HD Review

Review Kiloo By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Bullet Time HD Review

Free games tend to fall in to one of two categories if you excuse the usual subset of 'trial' games from the mix: They're either incredibly polished and ready to bite down on your wallet at every opportunity they gets, or they're a cheap attempt at harvesting ad revenue with simple and overplayed clones. Now that I've made my overly simplistic generalization for the day I can only point a finger in disgust at Bullet Time HD for one major reason: It has contributed to ruining gamer's e…

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
Poker Pals Review

Yes, this is a turn based poker game played on a board. You play your hand, and then your opponent can use the hand you placed to create their own hand. Once the board starts filling, points can be…

Shantae: Risky's Revenge Review

Shantae: Risky's Revenge Review

Shantae is a half genie. She finds herself on a quest to travel all over Sequin Land to stop the evil pirate wench Risky Boots, who has stolen a magic lamp capable of terrible power. Predictability aside, what we have here is an old school platformer as you travel left or right from screen to screen, collecting items, defeating enemies, and engaging in boss encounters. Platformer fans should feel right at home. The game uses an on screen joystick and buttons. Shantae can move left or…
