Aurora Feint 3 iPad Review

Review Openfeint Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Aurora Feint 3 iPad Review

If your idea of fun involves trudging around and getting involved in random match-3 based puzzles, then you might find Aurora Feint 3 to be right up your alley. That is - of course - only if that's all you're interested in. As a continuation of their popular series and Danielle Cassley and Jason Citron's first release for the iPad, Aurora Feint 3's beauty only goes skin deep. Much like the previous titles, battling opponents is performed using their unique match-3 system. Tiles can be…

Stickbound FREE! Review

Review Gamenauts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Stickbound FREE! Review

Stickbound by Gamenauts is a tough nut to crack. Using a completely unique style of horizontal endless gameplay based on pole-vaulting your way across surreal landscapes, it's simultaneously one of the most frustrating, yet positively addictive games to play. All that you require to make your way forward is your wits and well timed taps. By tapping on the screen you extend a pole from your character to the ground, pushing yourself further away. Careful timing can spring you high up or…

Chrome-8 Review

Chrome-8 Review

Chrome-8 by Far East Asia Development is a pure puzzle experience. This isn't the kind of game that appeals to many people, but anyone who has enjoyed games like PathPix will enjoy the simple challenge that Chrome-8 provides. Each puzzle represents a web of links used to shift the colored orbs on screen. Your goal is to align the colors in such a way that no two colors are linked. This sounds murderously difficult, but two game modes (and a total of 300 puzzles) are available to warm…

ABOVE Review

Review Axolot By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
ABOVE Review

Simplicity in game design can work. It's stating the obvious, but it's worth remembering when some games stack on feature after feature to make a basic idea look better. ABOVE by Axolot is another take on the endless vertical gameplay that combines simple gameplay with amazing artwork for a game that's sublime to enjoy. On your endless quest to the stars the only control you require is a simple tap and hold to jump. The longer you hold, the higher you jump. The uncomplicated scheme re…

AirBear Review

Review Origin8 By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
AirBear Review

'How far can you get?' games are quite popular. You can load them up, try and beat your high score and be on your merry way. Airbear by Origin8 Technolgies tries to combine the reach the stars gameplay of games like Doodle Jump, with trampolines. If you're playing through the Homeward Bound mode, there are also puzzle pieces in each area to collect that will unlock the bear's propeller hat. Control takes some time to get used to, and even then it can be frustrating. Trampolines are cr…

Hired Gun Review

Hired Gun Review

Are you restless and twitchy, perhaps you think the world moves too slowly? Then Hired Gun by Triniti Interactive is the game for you. iSniper has tread this ground before, but unless you have excellent perception and spider like reflexes Hired Gun can quickly become an exercise in frustration. After you're given your target for the randomly picked level you'll need to immediately find a way to slow down time like you're in the Matrix. Random people will pass along streets, in front o…

Burple Fish : The Burping Free Falling Action Game Review

Review Russ Kumro By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Burple Fish : The Burping Free Falling Action Game Review

Clowns, whatever you're position on them as entertainers, are typically associated with fairly surreal situations. If you could slip in to the dreams of a clown after a big successful show near the seaside, you might just find a resemblance to Russ Kumro's latest App, Burple Fish. Should you be fascinated enough to delve in to the halls of madness, you'll be confronted by a simple premise: Get your fish to the ocean without him exploding from built up 'gas'. As you fall from the sky y…

Dinosaur Slayer Review

Review D&D Dream Corp. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Dinosaur Slayer Review

Dinosaur Slayer by Project Soul wants nothing more than to crush you. Players will find this game quite literally hit-or-miss. Bow-defense fans will get a great new challenge while new players to the genre will find the controls much more forgiving to learn. For most levels there's not a lot out of the ordinary from a standard bow-defense game. Each 'stage' consists of wave after wave of enemies, each with their own quirk to defend against. Arrows are fired by touching the screen to s…

My Brute Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
My Brute Review

My Brute is a combat and levellng game in the same genre as games like Mafia Wars. You create a character and academy, and then fight other real opponents around the world to level up, and achieve new techniques and weapons. Like Mafia Wars, you only have a certain number of fights you can engage in each day, but can purchase the ability to play more via ingame DLC. The game is pretty much on auto pilot. The fights themselves are taken care of via the computer and all you can do is wa…

Ice Bullet Review

Review David Fernandez Vara By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
Ice Bullet Review

If there's one thing certain about the Olympics (summer or winter), is that there will be many videogames made to capatilize on the events. Bobsleigh is one such event that seems like a good idea for a videogame and a great idea for an iphone game, especially using tilt controls. Ice Bullet sets out to deliver a Bobsleigh experience on the iphone, but does it replicate the speed and danger of its real life counterpart? Control is tilt based, with leaning forward used for braking aroun…


Raging Thunder 2 Review

Review Polarbit By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
Raging Thunder 2 Review

There are plenty of racing sims on the appstore, but sometimes you just feel like an arcade experience. Raging Thunder 2 has you driving as fast as possible, smashing into things and vying for first place. Earn enough cash and you can purchase new cars, and upgrade them for faster driving, and more intense smashing. Like most iphone racers, acceleration is handled automatically and turning is tilt based. There is a button for braking and one for boosting (and you'll definitely be hold…

Chalkboard Stunts Review

Review Manta Research By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
Chalkboard Stunts Review

In the Alpine Crawler World review, the term physics racer was used. This seems an apt title as any to describe Chalkboard Stunts. Your tiny car has to drive over a landscape of chalk ramps and jumps to get to the raceflag as quickly as possible. Your car is controlled by two arrow buttons on the sides of the screen. One accelerates left, the other right. The buttons above it are for turning your car in air to land correctly, or righting it when you've flipped. At any time, the screen…

Gundead Defense Review

Review Longtail Studios By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
Gundead Defense Review

Tower defense games are a dime a dozen on the iphone. If you're going to be taken seriously you need to be offering something special. Well how about multiplayer? Gundead Defense is a solid tower defense game that offers a multiplayer scenario to the genre that works surprisingly well. A young man named Cubby runs off to join his uncle and a gang of bank robbers to make some money, but what they didn't count on was zombies! Like all tower defense games, control is a tap away. Drag uni…

Alert! Incoming! Review

Review Floodlight Software LLC By Kym Holmes, 4 years, 5 months ago
Alert! Incoming! Review

Alert! Incoming! is a space shoot em up whereby the player takes on the role of a large defence laser that must destroy incoming enemies before they reach your shields and destroy your ship. With no instructions or tutorials, you must learn the controls on your own which involve holding your finger and sliding it across the arrows on the bottom to aim your laser. To change weapons, you tap on the weapon icon to choose which defence weapon you wish to use. However, changing weapons has…


Ragdoll Blaster 2 Review

Review Backflip Studios By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
Ragdoll Blaster 2 Review

Ragdoll Blaster was a really fun game by Backflip Studios. Trying to shoot ragdolls out of cannons into a target in as few shots as possible made for some clever level design and addictive gameplay. Well, the sequel is upon us, and the goal is the same. The question is have they expanded upon the idea enough to warrant an entirely new game? Control is just like the first. Touch the screen to shoot the cannon. The power of the shot is determined by how close or far away from the cannon…
