Max Adventure Review

Max Adventure Review

With the adults of the world all sucked up in to alien spacecrafts and nothing but an ocean of moxie and a discarded ray-gun, Max is left to save the kids of the neighborhood (and maybe even the world) in Max Adventure by Imangi Studios. Those familiar with twin-stick shooters will be able to jump right in and dispense justice to the invading hordes by using the usual setup of one stick for movement and one stick to shoot in any given direction. Power-ups can be collected for temporar…

Hero Project Review

Hero Project Review

It seems that Glu really have a deft hand when it comes to taking the drag out of freemium titles and Hero Project is no exception to this as it exchanges time wasting in the form of re-arranging your virtual town for punching bad guys in the gut. It may sound silly, but when most social titles expect you to pop in for a brief moment or two before waiting for the next push notification it's nice to finally play something a bit juicier. After creating your superhero you're introduced t…

Jenga Review

Jenga Review

I just have to ask this... I mean, how bored was the person who came up with Jenga? Don't get me wrong, I've had some fun times with friends playing the game, but at what point did someone craft 54 wooden blocks, stack them up and say 'Yup, that's a game!'? At any rate, you can dispense with the messy, noisy and tedious creation of the Jenga tower thanks to NaturalMotion's modern 3D update to this party-game favorite. One of the tricks of Jenga is knowing just which block to go for an…

Bakery Story Review

Review TeamLava By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years ago
Bakery Story Review

TeamLava are no stranger to the social gaming scene and Bakery Story™ is the latest in their series of titles to attempt to ensnare and ruin the spare time of those who just can't get enough of the virtual-life. The process of succeeding as a virtual bakery store owner is a relatively simple one and players need only to provide a place for their customers to sit down and enjoy their food, while keeping their counters filled with products cooked from their kitchen stations. The a…

Super Blast 2 Review

Review exozet By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years ago
Super Blast 2 Review

It hasn't been terribly long since the release of Phantoom Entertainment's 'endless' arcade shmup title 'Super Blast' was released in the App Store, but the sequel has already dropped and Super Blast 2 packs a bunch of new features that out muscle its predecessor. Much like the original title the game is an endless adaption of a shoot'em-up where players face an immediate game over if a single enemy gets past them. However this isn't as hard as it sounds as you're outfitted with some…

Spectrum Shock Review

Spectrum Shock Review

Attempting to come up with something unique isn't always easy, especially when it comes to arcade shooters, but Spectrum Shock by BoxFrog Games attempts to fuse the iDevices tilt controls with an interesting shooter concept that will have you spinning to keep up with the action. As a basic endless arcade title, your only goal is to survive as long as possible while taking out as many enemies before you run out of energy. To shoot, players need only to tap the enemy they're after and o…

Monster Feed Review

Monster Feed Review

One of the unfortunate downsides of playing a traditional tower defense title is the lack of things to do outside of waiting for the next wave or staring intently at the gold counter to get the next upgrade/tower. Monster Feed by Day Go By Entertainment takes a different approach and subsidizes its gameplay with a spell system that is not only helpful, but almost necessary to survive. Those familiar with games like The Creeps will recognize the basic formula of Monster Feed as you thr…

Astronut Review

Astronut Review

Endless jumpers in one variety or another are a common occurrence on the App Store, though now and then a lesser used variation based on rotating platforms pops up in games like Jump o'Clock and Oddy Smog. Astronut by The Iconfactory puts its own spin ('ha ha') on this variation in more ways than one and players will need to explore the cosmos with their character while avoiding dangerous planets and alien creatures out to stop you. The basic gameplay consists of moving between planet…

Pee Monkey Plant Bloom Review

Review Happylatte Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Pee Monkey Plant Bloom Review

There's just no getting around it... things are going to be said and I'm in the unfortunate position of having to say them, but it's hard not to feel a little bit weird when you start talking about Pee Monkey Plant Bloom by happylatte. I mean, the name says it all really; you'll need to pee on plants with a monkey to help the garden to grow. The gameplay itself is not unlike that of games like Angry Birds and players have a limited amount of... 'shots'... to make the plants bloom. Dra…

Red Devil Review

Review Xu Tianshui By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Red Devil Review

Sometimes you're only after something simple to while away your spare time and Red Devil by hare might just be the puzzle platformer for you if you need a quick time-killer. Armed with little more than directional buttons and a jump key, you'll need to solve 20 currently available levels in order to complete the game. Everything including your character is subjected to forces that can result in being pushed and pulled around the screen and if you're not careful the simple act of a mov…

Q Pang Review

Review BOBTAN studio By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Q Pang Review

Q Pang by BOBTAN studio isn't above playing with cliches. You're a cat out to defend his planet from gelatinous aliens with a delusion of universal dominance and you'll have to deploy cakes, bombs and a few bullets to keep them at bay; you know, that old chestnut. What? You haven't heard it before? Well no matter, you'll slip right in to things despite the somewhat odd translation and spelling mistakes for the English text. Over five worlds, each with five increasingly difficult level…

Smurfs' Village Review

Smurfs' Village Review

I guess it was only a matter of time before someone realized that the Smurfs lived in a village, 'And hey! What a great idea it'd be if you could manage that little town?!'. So, lo and behold, Capcom have created the official Smurfs' Village and all your usual Farmville-ish obsessions can now be dedicated to defending the Smurfs from their ever present nemesis, Gargamel. Much like other freemium farm/town management style titles, you'll need to earn levels through experience earned fr…

Chrominance Review

Review Andrea Mazzini By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Chrominance Review

Chrominance by Andrea Mazzini and EFlat Games challenges players to mix their skills at timing and combining colors to score it large in this strange physics based arcade title. Orbs of paint will make their way on to the screen at regular intervals, but should they collide with another orb they'll combine and splatter over the background. To score you'll need to make sure this combination lands on the correctly colored background by swiping them around the screen and if you're playin…

Kiko: The Last Totem Review

Review FABULAPPS By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Kiko: The Last Totem Review

I'm kind of weird in that I don't find a puzzle to be overly satisfying unless I feel like breaking something in half before inspiration strikes me and all is calm once again. Kiko: The Last Totem currently provides 150 chances to throw your iDevice in to a blender with its infuriatingly cute puzzles that can be shared with your friends, so at least they too can know your anguish. The aim of Kiko is to get Kiko and his friends to sit comfortably on their respective pads before the lev…

CAPCOM ARCADE Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
CAPCOM ARCADE Review

If you spent any time at an arcade in the 80s or 90s or you have immense personal luck of having a classic arcade remaining open in your area, then you should already be familiar with the lineup of CAPCOM ARACDE as it sports a classic quartet of titles that are likely to have devoured your spare change in the past. Players can choose from four basic titles, opting to spend their in-game tokens on Street Fighter 2, Ghouls 'N Ghosts, 1942 or Commando. Three free tokens are handed out ev…
