Twinflix 2 FREE Review

Review Franco Mellerio By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Twinflix 2 FREE Review

Twinflix: The Falling Blocks Puzzle by Franco Mellerio is exactly what you think it is (another Tetris-like), but instead of focusing on replicating the single-player experience you'll find yourself constantly competing against opponents, be it an AI or another player around the world. Given the twin-display of the game, you'll be locked in to a portrait layout with the controls arranged in the center along your next block display. Instead of a single rotate button, two directional bu…

Pig Rockets Review

Review Camigo Media LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Pig Rockets Review

What does rocket fuel, Tetris, bacon and the castle defense genre have in common? More times than not I'd say they don't really have anything in common, but if you're playing Pig Rockets by Camigo Media you'd be surprised at just how relevant they all are. Wave after wave of rocket-controlled piggies are attempting to blow up your house, barn, dog-house, mansion (and so on) and you'll need to put your Tetris skills to work in order to create barriers that will crush their advance. Gro…

Space Bunnies Review

Review ShockPanda Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Space Bunnies Review

Bunnies are by their very nature an extremely cute species - sure we could get in to how we as humans are conditioned to various forms of 'cuteness', but damn it I just like bunnies, leave me alone! Space Bunnies follows the adventures of a race of alien bunnies who for reasons unknown are green and look like Gir in his dog-suit from Invader Zim, but I digress... they need to find a new home and you'll need to fly their ship of cuddles and rainbows across the universe in search of a st…

Circuloid Brick Breaker Review

Review Macoscope sp. z o.o. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Circuloid Brick Breaker Review

Take one circle, add paddles around it and insert a few bricks and a ball - it sounds simple enough, but 'Circuloid' by Macroscope is a unique take on the typical brick-breaking gameplay and by no means an easy game to master. Several control variants are available, including simple swipes and tilt controls, though no matter what you choose the real skill is in keeping track of your ball (or balls depending on power-ups) while also keeping your paddles aligned around the play area. Va…

6th Planet Review

Review Monkube Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
6th Planet Review

It takes a lot of confidence to revive a classic type of gameplay like 'Lander' with the intent of creating a compelling video game, but Monkube have managed to pull it off, though I suspect the incredible artistic talent backing the project certainly helped. '6th Planet' follows the journey of a space-module confined monkey bound for Saturn as he attempts to avoid dangerous hazards while conserving enough fuel to make it to each subsequent base. You're only given two controls to mane…

Falling Fred Review

Review Dedalord S.R.L. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Falling Fred Review

Fred... well Fred is a bit of a dingus; I mean honestly... who keeps jumping down a blade and spike filled corridor expecting something different? Fred, that's who. You can try to keep this thick-skulled cretin alive for as long as possible in Falling Fred by Dedalord, however you're ultimately destined to fail, so why not tear off a few limbs while you're at it? Falling Fred is definitely not for the feint of heart as blood is prone to spray around regularly, but if you're doing your…

Shadow Era TCG Review

Review Kyle Poole By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Shadow Era TCG Review

Don't be fooled by its outward appearance as a free game - Shadow Era, much like any Trading Card Game (TCG) is designed to suck you in and trap you until you've emptied your pockets, your spare time and maybe even your friends. OK sure, I'm being melodramatic and not everyone is going to become obsessed about a new TCG, but basing the gameplay on something as popular as the World of Warcraft TCG and making it free is sure to snag a few people. Like most TCGs the gameplay revolves aro…

Buddy Rush ® Review

Review Company 100 Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Buddy Rush ® Review

Freemium titles, or more specifically, games that implement some form of play restriction can get a bad rap, especially if the game harshly limits the time you can play as an incentive to spend money. Adding a social twist via Facebook only seeks to reinforce the habit (and knock the competitive aspect up a notch) and it's easy to feel a bit skeptical about new similar titles, especially if you've been burned in the past. Buddy Rush by Company 100 takes this free game model and attach…

Starfront: Collision™ FREE Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Starfront: Collision™ FREE Review

Please Note: Due to Gameloft's new release system, the title is only free as a 'demo' with an in-app purchase unlocking the rest of the content. This does require an internet connection of some kind for your device, however given that this requires 3rd Gen or higher iOS device, this should be available in one form or another. The current release price is US$6.99 - please adjust accordingly for your region and be aware that sales/updates could affect this pricing regularly. As a genre,…

Hungry Shark - Part 3 Review

Review Future Games of London By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Hungry Shark - Part 3 Review

Future Games of London have placed Hungry Shark back up for a third spin on the App Store and for those already familiar with this vicious free-roaming title you now have a chance to take on an evil genius in his secret lair. Where the first release had its moments of fun, it was ultimately fairly short and limited in its scope. Part 3 goes a long way to resolve this problem by providing a much larger area to play with and challenging obstacles to overcome in order to get there. Cont…

Crystal Soul Review

Review HuaXu Culture Creative By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Crystal Soul Review

It was only a matter of time before someone else decided to emulate the gameplay of Bloody Fun Day by Urban Squall, but the dismal conversion to the App Store left the doors wide open for someone else to exploit. Crystal Soul by HuaXu Culture Creative is a new take on this turn-based puzzler concept, though those unfamiliar with its source material may find themselves out of their depth. Each of the 20 currently available levels presents players with a set of objectives to complete be…

Bubble Pets: 8-BIT RETRO TWITCH ACTION Review

Review Stephen Ceresia By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Bubble Pets: 8-BIT RETRO TWITCH ACTION Review

Bubble Pets: 8-BIT RETRO TWITCH ACTION by miiifan games delivers (almost) exactly what the title claims, giving ADD suffering gamers a manic shooter experience that punishes anything other than perfection over the course of its multiple 45 second long levels. All you have to do is touch every creature that pops up except for the one declared as the 'bad pet' before starting the level. Bonus points are awarded for not missing any taps and on later stages you'll have to face obstacles t…

Dirt Review

Review Broken Kings By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Dirt Review

It's getting harder and harder to escape the influence of the time-vacuum that is Minecraft and its inspirational affects seem to be leaking across the gaming world as a whole. Dirt by Broken Kings is a relatively short abstract narrative title that places you control of a cat-skeleton attempting to work out who he is and why he's digging around underground in a persistent world. Players start out in a large, empty room armed with little more than a pickaxe and the ability to switch t…

Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden FREE Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 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, 7 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…
