ArkanoArena for iPhone Review

Review Sketch Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
ArkanoArena for iPhone Review

So somewhere in the pockets of time and space there's a tournament held that is only for the strongest competitors to survive. It is overseen by a mysterious man named Arkano, and the competition itself... is Arkanoid. This is definitely one of the more ludicrous setups for a brick breaker but fans of the genre will see that this is indeed a solid entry. For those who've played any brick breaker on the iPhone, the controls should be familiar. The paddle (called the Stinger in this gam…

To-Fu 2 Review

Review HotGen Ltd. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
To-Fu 2 Review

How far can you stretch a premise? That was a joke. You see in To-fu 2, you play a block of tofu who stretches to ping his way onto walls in search of the ever elusive kitty fortune cookie. For those who played the original game, not too much has changed. You use your finger to stretch the tofu in the direction you want him to fly, and he'll stick to the corresponding piece of wood. Obviously spikes will kill him, but there's metal which he will ricochet off, glass he'll slide down, a…

NOM 5 Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
NOM 5 Review

Nom wants to find himself a girlfriend. To do so, he's on a quest to meet the Spaceking and acquire the truth of life along the way. At least that's what we think is going on. The story itself reads like it was written through an online translator and doesn't have much to do with the gameplay. Funnily enough this could a point in the favor of Nom's odd charm. When the first level loads up, you get the feeling this is going to be another endless runner with a multi-purpose tap control…

Jetpack Joyride Review

Review Halfbrick Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Jetpack Joyride Review

There were two particularly interesting results that came of Brisbane-based developer Halfbrick studios release of Monster Dash (a fun, but basic endless runner) last year. Firstly it was the introduction of Barry Steakfries - a rebel without a cause and all-around monster slaying badass. Secondly, a temporary power-up allowed you to soar through the sky on the wings of a gatling-gun jetpack - if that doesn't evoke a Tim the "Toolman" Taylor style series of grunts, I don't know what wi…

SPY mouse Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
SPY mouse Review

Sometimes it's easy to forget that Firemint, the developers of the Real Racing series for iOS have another game they're rather famous for - a little line-drawing App called Flight Control. While racing has its fans, Flight Control made perfect use of the touch-screen interface to create a fun game based around the pressures of multitasking. So what if Firemint decided to boil the concept down in to something a bit more bite-sized? What if you were rewarded for your puzzle solving skil…

Candy Boy Review

Review Colorbox By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Candy Boy Review

Candy Boy is what would happen if Dr. Mario had been a platformer instead of a puzzle game. Casper finds that his beloved Candy Land has been infested by horrific candy hungry worms. It's now up to him to use the power of sugary treats to send these parasites to oblivion. Each level consists of worms of different colors nestled amongst candy of different colors. Armed with a small supply of candy himself, Casper needs to place the blocks so that three or more of the same color matches…

Let's Golf! 3 Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Let's Golf! 3 Review

The Let's Golf series from Gameloft has come to represent the casual, fun side of golfing - giving players some sense of realism paired with cute avatars, fantastic and unreal locations, and plenty of unlockables to make competitive play against friends all the more exciting. The third and latest iteration of the title doesn't change its basic tune all that much, pairing all the same elements together, but with one major twist - it's now a Freemium title. This seriously changes the fu…

Squirmee REDUX Review

Review Coding Design, LLC By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Squirmee REDUX Review

Squirmee is enjoying time with his sister, when out of nowhere, a gigantic tree shoots out of the ground and traps her on its highest branch. This is the story of Squirmee and the Puzzling Tree, and sets the stage for a fast paced, original puzzle game, with plenty of frustration to spare. Each level has Squirmee traveling along a predetermined path on a platform. The goal is to reach the end as quickly as possible, with the three stars available each level tied to the time of complet…

Temple Run Review

Review Imangi Studios, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Temple Run Review

Imangi Studios isn't the kind of company to mess around with a name, what with games and apps like Word Squares, PhotoMarkr, Max Adventure and Harbor Master being almost exactly what you'd think them to be. So when they named this game Temple Run, it was almost guaranteed to be about some sort of Hollywood archeologist running away from natives. Like several endless runners of-late, Temple Run takes a shot at mastering the 3D perspective, opting in this case to have players run in to…

Touch Detective Review

Review BeeworksGames By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Touch Detective Review

The App Store is in many ways a second chance at life for some games that otherwise missed their mark the first time around or feel they have enough legs to penetrate the market again. Touch Detective (also known as Mystery Detective) by BeeWorks came out in most regions for the Nintendo DS in 2006 and attempted to showcase a point-and-click adventure style game for the system. While not critically acclaimed it was still a fun game and now iOS users can give this quirky game a go for t…

Ninja Fishing Review

Review Gamenauts By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Ninja Fishing Review

Sit back,  relax, and let the fattest ninja since Chris Farley aid you in the unique art of Ninja Fishing. It's a simple addictive title that consists of four phases. First is navigating your fishing line as far down as it will go, avoiding all the fish by tilting your iPhone. Then either when you've reached the bottom or accidentally snagged a fish, your line comes up again, and now it's time to grab up to twenty five of the largest, juiciest pieces of sea life the waters near M…

Dice Soccer! Review

Review LambdaMu Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Dice Soccer! Review

It's finally happened! The pairing you were waiting for. The fast paced action of soccer combined with the slow methodical tension of a dice roll. I guess both games require luck but while an odd pairing, Dice Soccer is a pretty addictive title. You are the manager of a soccer team. Starting in a training camp you have to win or draw matches to earn enough stars to move up the ranks and compete in the big leagues. You have three lines of players. Three forwards, three defense, and a g…

Shake Spears! Review

Review Shpaga Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Shake Spears! Review

There are a few options available to you when trying to put together a game based on jousting - there's the obvious fantasy approach (much like Joust!) where the rules are understandable, but clearly unrealistic; there's the RPG approach where variables and random chance help to determine the victor; or there's simply ramming two men and their horses together to see what happens. Shake Spears! by Alawar Entertainment and Wake Up Studios takes the last approach, albeit with a touch of m…

Time Geeks: Cloneggs Review

Review Cory Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Time Geeks: Cloneggs Review

What do you get when you combine a matching puzzle with a collectibles game? You get Time Geeks: Cloneggs. In each level there are a number of eggs. You can either hatch them by tapping on them, or over time they will hatch themselves. When they hatch, little sprite characters appear, and it's up to you to find their clones and drag a line between them. At the end of each level, one character is left, and this clone is now added to your collection and will appear in subsequent levels.…

MapleStory Cygnus Knights Edition Review
