Buganoids Review

Buganoids Review

If Julian Farrior, CEO of Backflip Studios is to be believed (and why wouldn't we!), Buganoids is the last of the companies free titles for the Summer, but what a great title it is! Just about everything oozes with a classic arcade feel, from the simple sprite art of the game's characters to the cabinet style buttons themselves; for old arcade fans this is nostalgia without the need to throw quarters/tokens down a slot. In each of the game's levels your character finds himself maroone…

ISUD : Bullet Hell Action !!! Review

ISUD : Bullet Hell Action !!! Review

Recently an adaption of Kenta Cho's 'rRootage' was released on the App Store and it seems surprising that developer Pencil Logic would choose to release their title ISUD (It Shoots, You Dodge) so soon after. Much like rRootage, ISUD is an abstract shooter, focusing on the gameplay of dodging waves of bullet patterns while destroying enemies that change after each death. The controls are certainly simple enough and players can move their pixel-sized ship around the screen by swiping th…

Pocket Frogs Review

Pocket Frogs Review

As entries in to the 'freemium' model of games go, Pocket Frogs by NimbleBit has a unique charm of its own. Instead of a farm or a castle to play with, you'll need to breed and take care of your collection of frogs, sharing and cataloging each of the 10,000+ frogs while maintaining multiple habitats to keep them all happy. OK you don't have to collect EVERY frog, but once you've started your journey in to breeding these beautiful creatures you'll start checking your way off the game…

War of the Gods Review

Review EASY Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years ago
War of the Gods Review

War of the Titans by EASY is a turn-based strategy that tries to play with the formula, removing a lot of control from the player in order to streamline the experience and while this is commendable, the result is something that feels too loose to really call 'strategic'. There are only two controllable mechanics in the game itself, with players being able to move their units forward and should they have enough cash, hiring enemies to bulk up their forces. The ability to 'buy' enemies…


Free Zombie Hero - Kill Angry War Ninja Review

Free Zombie Hero - Kill Angry War Ninja Review

Swedish developers Fabrication Games had a burning question that they had to answer for themselves, 'What do you get if you make a game using all of the App Store's most searched for phrases?'. The answer came in the release of 'Free Zombie Hero - Kill Angry War Ninja' and to be fair, if that doesn't score some interest right off the bat, then I'd be surprised. In Zombie Hero you have to avenge the deaths (or is that re-deaths?) of your zombie family at the hands of a horde of ninjas…

Solomon's Boneyard Review

Review Raptisoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years ago
Solomon's Boneyard Review

I'm honestly a bit lost for words; when Raptisoft decided to turn their excellent dungeon crawler Solomon's Keep in to a straight twin-stick shooter I wasn't sure what to think. However if you had any interest in the original title then 'Solomon's Boneyard' is almost a guaranteed must try... I think I'm already have withdrawals just writing this review. Ok ok, melodrama aside this title cuts back on the crawling and focuses on some of the best aspects of their original title. In this…

XAGON. Review

XAGON. Review

XAGON. by Sudden Creations might be a little familiar for some, especially if you've played the recently released title 'Flipstones'. However, instead of going for a flashy and at times unforgiving style of gameplay, XAGON strips things down to the basics and players will need to either make matches as fast as possible, or with the minimum amount of moves to score it big. Swapping only requires a quick swipe, but they can only be switched one at a time, making the Strategy and Arcade…

Spark It Up Review

Review sumiguchi By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years ago
Spark It Up Review

In Spark It Up by Sumiguchi you'll take part in a magical fireworks show, setting off each rocket while creating what could only be vaguely described as music in the process. Each of the game's six currently available levels features a unique sound track that is used in combination with touching the screen to generate musical sound. With each pass of the Lumines-esque bar across the screen you'll need to swipe or tap every rocket on screen to set them off and earn points. If three roc…

Assault Commando Review

Assault Commando Review

What would you do if you were in a jungle with a swag of guns, tasked with a vague mission of taking out a world-domineering madman all the while dealing with a chronic psychological disorder where you must dispense a one-liner after almost every action you make? Why you'd saddle up and blow everything up to pieces 'cause you're playing Assault Commando by 3D Magic. The game's control system isn't anything too out of the ordinary, with a basic virtual stick and various buttons for wea…

Coastal Super-Combat Review

Coastal Super-Combat Review

Coastal Super-Combat by Triniti Interactive is yet another weapon-based defense title to add to the pile, but it has been some time since we've tried one of these games so lets see if anything new has cropped up. The controls definitely fall under the heading of 'if it's not broke, don't fix it' which means that players will need to drag and around their cross-hairs to aim each weapon while firing with another button and tilting to pan across the game field. After each level you'll be…

Squish The Zombies Review

Review AQSystem By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Squish The Zombies Review

It's incredibly odd to get two games so similar to each other to review like this in one day, but at least it's also a great opportunity to see what does and doesn't work (at least for me) in games with similar concepts and different executions. Squish The Zombies by AQSystem is another game where you get to tilt and aim an ever increasing ball of snow as it cleanses the hillside of a zombie plague and unsightly houses. There are only two modes to choose from and in Arcade mode you'll…

Zombie Highway Review

Review Auxbrain, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Zombie Highway Review

Zombie Highway by Renderpaz is an endless arcade title of sorts that packs an interesting twist. Instead of merely dodging traps and enemies you'll have to weave your way down an endless highway littered with debris, scraping zombies off the sides of your vehicle as they jump on. It's the combination and balance of the game's mechanics that make this a deceptively simple game. While it's easy enough to dodge debris, you'll have to purposefully tilt your way against them to deal damage…

Donut Ninja - Tappi Bear Review

Review Taplay Limited By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Donut Ninja - Tappi Bear Review

Donut Ninja is the third in a current series of four available games by Taplay in the 'Tappi Bear' series of mini-games and I thought I'd give you the low-down on at least one of these titles as they're an interesting experience to say the least. All of the games in this series keep things extremely simple, requiring only one to two taps to play and in Donut Ninja it's your job to feed the incoming waves of attacking ninja bears with donuts before they attack. The game essentially fee…

MapleStory Thief Edition Review

Review NEXON MOBILE By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
MapleStory Thief Edition Review

Ahh MapleStory - I lost a weekend of my life to your promises of fun beat'em-up platforming only to realize I didn't have the stamina to endlessly grind away all of my spare time. Sadly the free PC MMO has infiltrated the App Store and threatened to consume my life again and I must delve in to MapleStory Thief Edition in order to warn you, our readers/viewers of the dangers within. MapleStory has always had a fairly simple platforming design and translating the gameplay to the App Sto…

Jaws™ Review

Review Fuse Powered Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Jaws™ Review

Is there a new Jaws film I haven't heard about or is Universal studios just after a quick bite of the App Store market? Either way we now have an official Jaws game to play thanks to Bytemark Games, so lets get down to business. You get to play the role of the poor overworked Police Chief Martin Brody in this summer blockbuster re-imagining and you need to keep the swimmers of Amity safe from the irrationally angry and perpetually hungry shark that is Jaws. To do so you'll need to dir…
