Raging Thunder 2 Review

Review Polarbit By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 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, 8 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, 8 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, 8 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, 8 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…

Astro Ranch Review

Review Tag Games Limited By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 months ago
Astro Ranch Review

Space farming! Oh no, we're not talking about mining asteroids, or growing some kind of moon cheese, but a farming simulator... in space! Astro Ranch has your farmer crashlanding on an alien planet, who then has to harvest crops and lifestock to earn enough money to repair their shuttle and send them home. Everything is done by the touch of a finger. Walking, selecting farming implements, buying new seeds, and equipment, and even talking to the locals. When you start off, you don't ha…

Dizzypad - Frog Jump Fun Review

Review NimbleBit LLC By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 months ago
Dizzypad - Frog Jump Fun Review

Nimblebit seems to specialize in games of a simple premise that are hard to put down. Their latest effort Dizzypad is no different. You play a frog, and as a frog, obviously you are hopping from lily pad to lily pad. The problem arises when those lily pads won't stop spinning. How far can you get before the water claims you? When your frog faces the next lily pad, tap the screen to jump, and that's it! Lilys will turn in different directions, and skipping a lily pad on your hop will g…

Kingdom of Gnester Review

Kingdom of Gnester Review

Bejeweled is without a doubt one of the most recognizable and widely accepted forms of digital catnip for the casual gamer. Kingdom of Gnester takes this basic form of three-match gameplay and combines it with an excellent platformer that's not only challenging but often full of irreverent humor to enjoy. The titular Gnester is on a quest to forge his own kingdom and by playing a three-match game you give him the powers necessary to complete his journey. Matched gems fuel different ab…

Dracula: The Path Of The Dragon – Part 1 Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 months ago
Dracula: The Path Of The Dragon – Part 1 Review

Point and click adventure games are making a resurgence on the iphone. In this vein, Chillingo have ported over from the PC part one of a three part adventure titled Dracula: The Path of the Dragon. Redesigned for iphone use, you play as Father Arno Moriani, who is sent to the town of Vladoviste, Transylvania to investigate a potential candidate for sainthood. What you find there is not exactly expected. The control is one of the highlights of this game. Like Realmyst, you have a 360…

Robot Rampage Review

Review Origin8 By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 months ago
Robot Rampage Review

Rampage was a lot of fun. Choosing a giant lizard, gorilla, or wolfman and destroying cities for no reason kept gamers playing for a very long time. The basic idea has now been revitalized for the iphone, and instead of a giant animal, you're a giant robot! Yes the point of the game is to see how many city blocks you can destroy before the army ends your reign of carnage. You have a few attacks in your arsenal. Tapping and holding on screen fires your eye laser which will be your main…

VANQUISH: The Oath of Brothers Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
VANQUISH: The Oath of Brothers Review

The Action-RPG is a genre that can take a lot of beating. It's a flexible genre that lets you put as much or as little of each genre into the mix and still "get away with it". Vanquish: The Oath of Brothers is the latest Action-RPG from Gamevil and tries something new with a more "on rails" experience. Vanquish sports the usual virtual analogue stick and buttons that you'd expect, but the game is not as simple as it seems. Combat is fairly standard, with the usual combination of attac…

3D Mini Golf Challenge Review

Review RockYou, Inc. By Kym Holmes, 4 years, 8 months ago
3D Mini Golf Challenge Review

If you're into mini golf, 3D Mini Golf is on par to be a hit. The game takes you through various themed courses providing challenges you must meet in order to advance. The game is controlled by moving your finger in the direction you wish to swing and sliding down from the ball to set your hit power. You can also rotate the camera to have a look around the hole by sliding your finger around the viewport. Visually, the game has a cute 3D interface which is well suited to the style of…

Stair Dismount Universal Review

Review Secret Exit Ltd. By Kym Holmes, 4 years, 8 months ago
Stair Dismount Universal Review

Pushing someone down a flight of stairs is dangerous and not recommended. In the case of Stair Dismount, it's not only acceptable, it's your objective. The more bones you break and injuries you cause, the more points you score. Of course it's only a dummy, so don't try this at home. The controls are fairly straight forward: position an arrow on the dummy as your "push zone" and then click the large button when the meter reaches the strength you want to use. This will send your ragdoll…

Trundle Review

Review mobile bros., LLC By Kym Holmes, 4 years, 8 months ago
Trundle Review

Trundle is a puzzle based game whereby you roll and jump a blue glowing ball through obstacles to continue to the next screen. Similar in essence to games like Rolando, Trundle has a unique visual quality and addictiveness that makes it stand out. The controls are simple enough in that you tilt the screen to roll the ball and tap the screen to jump. Working out the best timing for jumps to use the appropriate inertia can take time, but it all adds to the challenge of the game. There i…

Pocket Chef™ Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Pocket Chef™ Review

Whether or not French cuisine agrees with you or not, it's not hard to recognize that France is the home of exquisite food. So it's no big surprise that French publisher Gameloft has created their own spin on cooking games with Pocket Chef being the first 3D version to hit the App Store. There are no real surprises when playing each of the cooking mini-games. The gameplay is refined from popular variants like Cooking Mama, requiring players to slice, tap, swirl and drag food to succes…
