MapleStory Cygnus Knights Edition Review

Review NEXON MOBILE By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 3 months ago
MapleStory Cygnus Knights Edition Review

For those of you unfamiliar with Maple Story, it's a free to play Korean MMO that's been around for the latter half of the 2000s.  Cygnus Knights is the 2nd release of a single player version of the franchise for mobile devices, allowing play with two characters through a world full of endlessly respawing monsters. You can play either as Mikhail the Soul Knight or Oz the Flame Wizard, essentially giving you a play choice between melee combat or magic (although it takes a bit of p…

Qvoid Review

Review Gavina Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
Qvoid Review

Some of best puzzle games base themselves around a simple concept that, when restricted in subtle ways, presents a whole new challenge to test your reasoning and logic. Qvoid by Gavina Games is one of these types of puzzles and while the idea of rolling a cube around and matching colors may seem easy enough, something as small as a 3x3 grid can turn in to a serious mind-bender. On each of the 96 currently available stages your aim is to smoosh all the colored squares on the level toge…

Kard Combat ™ Review

Review Hothead Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
Kard Combat ™ Review

Editor Note (Nov 9, 2011): One of the major weaknesses of Kard Combat when it was released was its lack of customization - something further exascerbated by only having a handful of mages to play with, limiting the overall amount of unique cards to try out. Instead of adding in deck manipulation, Hothead Games has opted to add more mages (albeit at a cost) while also adding in local hotseat (a boon for friends who don't own iDevices). We still feel the lack of customization makes…

Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer Review

Review Playdek By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer Review

On the one hand, the recent influx (if you can call it that) of Collectable Card Games (CCGs) and their related game-types is a boon to fans of card based gaming and those after something to play and pass around with friends. On the other hand (and this is more of a personal note) playing these sorts of games can become a bit of an obsession. Who better than tournament champions from Magic The Gathering to understand my woe and to help design Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer by Pl…

Tiny Tower Review

Review NimbleBit LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
Tiny Tower Review

If we were to think of all the freemium farming/city creation titles as a sort of time-restricted version of Sim City, then Tiny Tower by NimbleBit is a scaled down and time-restricted version of Sim Tower. Some may balk at the comparison to what is considered a classic, but if anyone is going to pull this off it's the company that brought us Pocket Frogs. Tiny Tower places you in the middle of a vicious cycle of trying to attract 'Bitizens' to live in your tower in order to employ th…

Skipping Stone Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
Skipping Stone Review

Despite already having a few titles dedicated to the 'Skipping Stone' series, it seems that iOS gamers are only now being introduced to this classic game from GAMEVIL's archives. Given its Java past it's no surprise to see this endless arcade title keeping things simple, but trying to keep an anthropomorphic stone in the air isn't an easy task. Originally, players had to traverse around the world, encountering various creatures in an attempt to find the stone's lost love. While the st…

Call of Mini: Zombies Review

Call of Mini: Zombies Review

There are no prizes for working out the influences for Triniti Interactive's latest release 'Call of Mini: Zombies', so it should be no surprise to find yourself strapping in to a zombie-themed twin-stick shooter. After selecting from a handful of characters you're faced with the challenge of shooting, chopping or blowing up a variety of zombies invading one of two different locations. In keeping with the 'Call of Duty' theme, players maneuver and fire their weapons from a third-perso…

1000 Heroz Review

Review RedLynx Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
1000 Heroz Review

RedLynx likes a good racer, though it seems they have an allergic reaction to vanilla racers, preventing them from making a bland title that most people would recognize. Some would consider it risky to flirt with these sorts unique ideas, but they're not slowing down and their current front-runner is 1000 Heroz. Every day you'll get to compete with people around the world with a new 'hero' and a new level, but you only get 24 hours to make your mark before starting anew. The game itse…

Max Damage Review

Review Digital Goldfish Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
Max Damage Review

Max likes to blow things up. Some would say this makes him a social time-bomb, but then again others would gladly place a cannon in his hands to see what happens. Max Damage by Digital Goldfish sets aside the worrying idea that people have left a weapon along with their expensive goods in the vicinity of such a disturbed child and goes with the flow. Instead of having specific objects that need to be destroyed (say like pigs), you need to aim for the most amount of destruction, target…

Demolition Dash Free Review

Review dreamfab By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Demolition Dash Free Review

Sometimes it's easy to pre-judge and potentially dismiss a game just because it doesn't 'look good', but there's an evil flip-side to this kind of thinking that results in 'style over substance'. Demolition Dash by dreamfab is a visually impressive title that packages the basic gameplay of an endless platformer with visual flair, but it all feels skin deep. Now and then gamers get the opportunity to wreak havoc in a city ala Godzilla, but in Demolition Dash things are scaled back - a…

Current Review

Review TinkerHouse Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Current Review

We've all played one game or another within the 'three-match' genre, be it something as iconic as Bejewelled or a little more abstract like Puzzle Bobble and their popularity resulted in the App Store (over)reacting accordingly. Over time the flood of copy-cats reached an equilibrium, leaving only the giants of the App Store as they stood on the backs of those who perished. The unique way in which these games explored a simple concept helped to contribute to their survival and Current…

To-Fu: The Trials of Chi Review

Review HotGen Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
To-Fu: The Trials of Chi Review

Part physics platformer, part puzzle, all tofu - To-Fu: The Trials of Chi by HotGen is only as hard as you want it to be, making this the perfect distraction for almost any gamer. Your basic goal is simple - make your way to the fortune cookie by throwing yourself around the level while sticking, sliding and bouncing off the various surfaces around you. This, however, short-changes you of the challenge of flinging To-Fu around the level, avoiding traps while collecting 'chi' or attemp…

Catch The Candy Review

Review Bulkypix By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Catch The Candy Review

So... you've got some candy and you've got a rope (of sorts), but in Catch the Candy by Bulkypix and FedoIT there's no cutting required. In fact the squishy little blue/purple fuzzball you control is like Spiderman if Spiderman lived in a quaint forest and used his powers to eat candy. The analogy, aside from odd, is actually apt as each of the 53 currently available levels are completed by flinging a sticky limb out from the little monster in order to grab on to objects and swing aro…

Army of Darkness Defense Review

Review Backflip Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Army of Darkness Defense Review

Army of Darkness was, even in my early years, a cult-classic and with such a following it's hard not to step on some toes when approaching the franchise for a video game conversion. Instead of trying to create something grandiose and overly-complex, Backflip Studios sticks to what it does best - that is to say, a game that's focused with a limited scope while still being enjoyable enough to keep coming back for more. There are no surprises for guessing what kind of game Army of Darkne…

Destructopus: Total Rampage! Review

Review GlitchSoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Destructopus: Total Rampage! Review

There's something about giant monsters and explosive weaponry that just feels right - maybe it's just the whole Horror B-Movie aspect of it all, but I think everyone's inclined to imagine thrashing about causing wanton destruction now and then. Destructopus by GlitchSoft tries to put a positive spin on the actions of the giant be-tentacled behemoth wreaking havoc across the countryside as you attempt to crush the humans who would exploit the endangered species of the planet. It may be…
