Temple Run Review

Review Imangi Studios, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 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, 3 years, 3 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, 3 years, 3 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, 3 years, 3 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, 3 years, 3 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, 3 years, 3 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

Review NEXON MOBILE By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 4 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, 4 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, 4 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, 4 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, 5 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, 5 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, 5 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, 5 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…
