Blot Review

Review Majestic Software By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 3 months ago
Blot Review

A lot of the time it can be hard to be a fair when you see so many instances of the same game. The trick then becomes to look for the innovative or failing that, what the title has to offer in terms of fun. Blot is essentially Jetpack Joyride taking place on a student's school notebook full of sketches. It is this setting however that provides the angle for which reviewing yet another Jetpack Joyride clone can be tackled. You control a blot of ink weaving its way through the hazards o…

Hello Copter Review

Review Sarcastic Hedgehog Ltd By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 3 months ago
Hello Copter Review

Game association can be an interesting thing. Playing Hello Copter invokes images of the old PC game Lander (or Lunar Lander as it was sometimes known). Those who have played Lander and are watching this video review are probably wondering what we're on about. It all comes down to the controls. This is your standard control scheme of touch to go higher and release to drop down. So many games use this that it's become rather commonplace. Where Hello Copter differs is adding a large amo…

Triple Town Review

Review Spry Fox, LLC By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 3 months ago
Triple Town Review

Additional Note From Dave - At the moment we currently don't have a system that provides reviewer based recommendations or thumbs up. Despite this, Triple Town has been considered a personal thumbs up from Dave Flodine, so take that as you will ;) Creating a truly addictive game is quite the balancing act. For starters, it has to be easy to pick up and play. After that, every move a player makes has to pour out possibilities, plus the need to make the next move, and the move after tha…

Off the Leash Review

Review Big Pixel Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
Off the Leash Review

I've never really held to the belief that you're either a dog or a cat person - for one I love the heck out of both dogs and cats and just about anything else that's super cute. So it's always good news when Big Pixel Studios, the developers behind games such as Meow Meow Happy Fight and Land-a Panda, drop something new on the App Store. Off The Leash places you in control of a dog who is attempting to break out of a city that has just banned canines and you only have a limited amount…

Running Fred Review

Review Dedalord S.R.L. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 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, 3 years, 3 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…

Boy Loves Girl Review

Review Grubby Hands By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 3 months ago
Boy Loves Girl Review

Often when a title seems like it could be classified an 'art game', a lot of the lack of polish and questionable gameplay mechanics are excused because of the overall experience it presents. These games usually divide as some players instantly click with what the game is revealing to them while others cannot get passed the poor execution. This makes the genre highly subjective and it almost always comes down to a 'love it or hate it' mentality, which is a real pickle for a reviewer. B…

GHOST TRICK: Phantom Detective Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 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, 3 years, 3 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, 3 years, 4 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, 3 years, 4 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, 3 years, 4 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, 3 years, 4 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…
