Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden FREE Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden FREE Review

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and it quacks like a duck, then it's probably a duck. Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden is exactly what it sets out to be, a Zelda-like; and to perfectly frank, it doesn't do a bad job of it either. Despite walking a line that straddles originality and shameless parody, Gameloft's latest title remains engaging despite some questionable flaws. Jumping in to the game is relatively simple, especially for those familiar with similar 3rd person action…

Thief Lupin! Review

Review BLUE WIND By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Thief Lupin! Review

Thief Lupin! by BLUE WIND exists in a bizarre world of its own that seems to be built out of polarizing forces. Let me qualify that in saying that for each aspect of this game that is absolutely fantastic, one equally terrible or frustrating aspect seems to exist. Because of this, players will either come to love or hate Thief Lupin! depending on which positive or negative traits end up weighing the most for them. Sporting a 'single button' system of simply touching the screen, Thief…

Wild Frontier Review

Review KTH By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Wild Frontier Review

After a while the seemingly endless stampede of Action-RPGs being converted from the Korean mobile phone market starts to feel like a bland, monotonous Ferris-wheel of boredom. What should be an exciting and in-your-face approach to RPGs is eventually drained of all of its fun and is replaced by going through the same motions over and over. With this in mind, Wild Frontier by KTH has a lot of doubts to dispel, but after a while it was clear that this game could actually be a positive s…

Liberty Wings Review

Liberty Wings Review

In what may be a fairly unpopular sentiment, it has to be said that much of the gaming crowd surrounding the App Store has a relatively skewed sense of 'value' when it comes to the content in games. The perpetuation of this need to provide lots of content for little money is certainly great for the consumer, but it does result in some odd aberrant titles like Liberty Wings by Digital Reality. In what is ostensibly a fairly classic shoot'em-up (shmup) title, Liberty Wings seeks to appe…

Surveillant Review

Review Recluse Industries By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Surveillant Review

One of the joys of the many daily releases of games on the App Store is stumbling upon unexpected titles that are refreshing, original and curiously addictive. Surveillant by Recluse Industries combines the simple challenge of exploring maze-like arenas while avoiding detection from the ever-vigilant surveillance camera and its deadly laser to create a challenge that requires quick thinking and responses to survive each level. Initially the game takes things fairly easy, providing a v…

Subsolar Review

Review Tenshi Noir Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Subsolar Review

You have to admire the tenacity of a developer that doesn't know the phrase 'I give up'. Despite the insanely challenging and original gameplay in Tenshi Noir's first title Love Battle Princess (LBP), it seems that many people were hung-up on the visual style - claiming it to be too raunchy or excessively girly (take your pick). As a result the developer has gone back to the drawing board (quite literally), keeping the gameplay in wholly in-tact while changing its visual theme to creat…

Bullistic Review

Bullistic Review

It takes a lot of guts to put your money where your mouth is in an attempt to reinvent the wheel, but Millepede Creative Development have taken up the challenge with their animal-flinging title Bullistic. Players are given a large slingshot; a bunch of bulls; and a target of five various shops, filled to the brim with the finest in pottery goods ('China' if you will). It's not hard to see what this equation is meant to add up to and after flinging a handful of bulls in to the shop, te…

Space Harvest Review

Review All-Seeing Interactive By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
Space Harvest Review

It's best that you don't concentrate too hard on the story in Space Harvest by All-Seeing Interactive as it's liable to make your head hurt. Lets be honest, all I need to know in a real-time strategy (RTS) is what I need to harvest and who's trying to steal it from me - the rest is fluff to justify having crazy technology! So while you're sending off your harvesters to collect precious, precious mushrooms (don't ask) you'll need to amass a killer army of units to steamroll your way th…

Zombie Trailer Park Review

Review Ninja Kiwi By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
Zombie Trailer Park Review

Zombie Trailer Park by Ninja Kiwi is (for those who haven't come across it before) another free Flash title that has made the jump to the App Store. Interestingly, the game has been converted with almost no changes (barring the interface) and to compensate for this the price tag is a surprisingly reasonable '$0'. The game itself is a fairly typical castle defense setup, with cash being earned over time and units being purchased to run blindly in to their opposition until you've pushed…

Trouble in Tin Town Review

Review Jovian Minds By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
Trouble in Tin Town Review

With so much variety available on the App Store, it's odd that more turn-based strategies haven't cropped up. Developer Jovian Minds has clearly seen an opportunity in the lack of strategic titles and has paired their game with a retinue of witty wind-up toys that are just itching to jump in to a fight. Though perhaps calling it 'strategy' is stretching things a little bit as the game often boils down to punching ranged units with your melee units and shooting melee units with your ra…

Garage Inc. Review

Garage Inc. Review

Sure you may have powdered a few noses, treated a few people to spas and served them tasty food in the past, but have you pulled up your sleeves to repair some vintage vehicles? Garage Inc. by Breakthrough Entertainment is a management style title with a classic twist and you'll have to work heard to break out of your debt with the local mobsters. After taking a loan from his cousin, Angelo Marito opens up a garage in Chicago and shortly thereafter is told about where that money came…

FluOrama Review

Review PixelAmmo Corp. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
FluOrama Review

Wrangling germs may not sound like a particularly interesting or exciting job, but in FluOrama by Pixel Ammo you'll have to do just that as you seek to correct the mistake of a clumsy scientist who dropped a dangerous concoction of bacteria. On each stage you'll be timed and scored according to how efficiently you can manage to collect all the bacteria currently bouncing around the level and enclosing them in the goal that's provided. To do this you can tap the screen, creating or des…

Bug Heroes Review

Review Foursaken Media By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
Bug Heroes Review

The castle-defense and twin-stick action genres have taken a beating for some time now, sharing their high points and low points as developers scramble to put their own spin on the concepts. Bug Heroes by Foursaken Media seeks to combine the two while going that extra step by giving players the freedom to choose between three unique characters, each with traits and skills that can drastically change the feel of the game as you progress. After spending a small amount of time playing th…

Review Steel Games, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
Lyst Review

While the sheer number of Apps released each day can result in a lot of chaff that only serves to clog up your iDevice, it also presents a unique chance to sift through and find those rare tasty grains that you never expected. Lyst by Steel Games is an arcade puzzler with a unique chemical-based twist that will challenge your dexterity and your ability exploit combination opportunities. There are four basic elements that can be combined, resulting in various effects based on the items…

Stoopid Sandwich Review

Review NoodlFroot By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
Stoopid Sandwich Review

UPDATE: A recent update has added Game Center support, giving Stoopid Sandwich a bit more shelf-life as you compete against others around the world for high scores and as such this eliminates one of the concerns highlighted below. Stoopid Sandwich by London-based developers NoodlFroot started out as more of a prototype for another concept they're working on, but after having so much fun with something this simple they decided to share it with the world. And I have to say I'm glad they…
