Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy HD Review

Review CAPCOM By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 1 month ago
Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy HD Review

It's been over two years since Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney was released on the App Store, and fans have been eagerly awaiting the next two chapters in this trilogy ever since. Well the good news is that And Justice For All and Trails and Tribulations have arrived as part of the Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy HD. The bad news is that while the graphics have been sharpened up, there are a few niggling issues that do bring the whole experience down a little. The games ar…

Tetris® Blitz iPad Review

Review Electronic Arts By James Gilmour, 1 year, 2 months ago
Tetris® Blitz iPad Review

Tetris will never die. The granddaddy of all block puzzlers is the quintissential example of a timeless game, one which transcends arbitrary divides such as age brackets and console generations. The latest iteration of the tetromino twirling title is Tetris Blitz. Designed for touchscreens, its puts a high-speed spin on the classic formula in the hope of injecting even more urgency into each round. Rather than guiding blocks and clearing lines until your stack hits the top of the scr…

Chuck the Muck Review

Review Kiz Studios By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 2 months ago
Chuck the Muck Review

Chuck yourself before you muck yourself! Sorry about that, but with a game title like Chuck the Muck it can be difficult not to make jokes. The title is also sort of misleading. Yes the game does indeed contain a muck, and as it is a physics flinger, there is certainly a high level of chucking, but the muck must be fed crystals (three in each level to be precise), and so the critter you control is the one being chucked around these single screen puzzles. The muck just looks on, and giv…


Dig! Review

Review Crescent Moon Games By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 2 months ago
Dig! Review

What recourse does a failed archaeologist have when the museum funding him is hurting for business? Well as a last ditch effort (get it?), he might try and set up a dig site in his backyard, excavating the wonders of the Earth to be put on display, and the further he digs, the more valuable treasures he hopes to find. Dig is an arcade game where your shovel must excavate seventy five percent of the plot of land you have, hopefully discovering the five treasures hidden there before mov…


Dark Avenger Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 2 months ago
Dark Avenger Review

In the last few years, the ARPG has exploded in popularity. For most of the 2000s, gamers were either playing Diablo II or one of the few games made to emulate it. This explosion in popularity even has the progenitor Diablo finding itself ill equipped to make a huge splash in the new market. It's of no surprise then that plenty of developers have tried to bring this style of game to IOS. These entires have met with various levels of success, and now Gamevil is throwing their hat into t…

Tiny Troopers 2: Special Ops Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 2 months ago
Tiny Troopers 2: Special Ops Review

The first Tiny Troopers is a game we missed reviewing when it was released last year. Well now that the sequel is out, we can amend that error. Many comparisons have been made of this series to the early nineties action series Cannon Fodder, and that comparison is quite apt indeed. You take control of a number of tiny troopers (as the name would suggest) who move, fire, and duck out of the way of enemy projectiles as a cohesive unit. You have primary and secondary objectives to achieve…


The House of the Dead: Overkill™­- The Lost Reels Review

Review SEGA By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
The House of the Dead: Overkill™­- The Lost Reels Review

The House of the Dead Overkill was released on the Wii in 2009. The 5th entry in the infamous rail shooter arcade mainstay franchise, this console exclusive diverged from its source material, creating a grindhouse aesthetic with ridiculous over the top characters, plot twists, and more swearing that even Grand Theft Auto is used to. Now in 2013 we have The Lost Reels for the iOS platform, where you take control of either Agent G or Isaac Washington as you blast through deleted scenes,…

Iron Man 3 - The Official Game Review

Review Gameloft By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
Iron Man 3 - The Official Game Review

The Iron Man franchise is one of cinema's heavy hitters, and thus you can always expect a tie-in videogame to accompany it. The previous movies have all had game tie-ins, and like with most Gameloft releases, they have been of a certain level of quality. Not fantastic, but definitely playable and enjoyable in their own way. Now the last game was a 3D action brawler but since then the endless runner has become the go-to genre on the App Store, so no points if you guessed this is what Ir…

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run Review

Review Nickelodeon By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run Review

Like many children of the eighties, I have a certain favourable nostalgic lens when it comes to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. As an iPhone games reviewer, I have a certain malaise when it comes to the endless runner genre. Last month's review of Snoopy Coaster showed that an average game can be excused if one enjoys the license, but only slightly. TMNT: Rooftop Run poses the same question, but at least a sigh of relief can be breathed as this is an endless runner that is at least a…

Robot Unicorn Attack 2 Review

Review [adult swim] By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
Robot Unicorn Attack 2 Review

It's been a couple years since Adult Swim graced us with Robot Unicorn Attack, a fantastical romp with a unicorn through a fairy tale world, complete with the biggest earworm of a soundtrack to ever grace iOS gaming. Seriously, “Always, I want to be with you”... it's in your head now, isn't it? So what do the creators have in store for a sequel. Well the usual mantra for sequels is more of the same, but bigger and better, and while that is certainly the case here, they've l…

Monster Meltdown Review

Review Ambient Studios By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
Monster Meltdown Review

For some reason, Yuri is a janitor in a lab that either houses monsters, creates monsters, or creates, and then houses monsters. Through a mishap, the monsters are let out. Now obviously Yuri is in trouble. Not only for his life (as he now has monsters running around), but his bosses are not going to be happy when they find out what he's done. So Yuri does what any of us would do; he puts on his teleporting hazard suit and goes to round up all the rampant monstrosities. Monster Meltdo…

Solitaire Blitz Review

Review PopCap By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
Solitaire Blitz Review

It's been a while since we've seen something from Popcap Games. Once having a reputation for casual yet fiercely addictive titles, many of which received praise from the mainstream gaming media, the company's output has been kind of sparse and quiet these last few years. Well it seems they're still with us having released Solitaire Blitz, a spin on the Windows gaming classic that emphasises social play and leaderboards. Yes, solitaire as a social game. The irony wasn't lost on us eithe…


Garden of Fear Review

Review smuttlewerk interactive By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
Garden of Fear Review

Garden of Fear has a warning on its iTunes page. It cautions people who are scared easily from playing this game. Full disclosure, Dave cannot handle scary games. He's fine with horror films, but there's something about controlling the character involved in a horror scenario instead of just watching it that makes things all too real. For this reason, he tends to stay away from horror titles, and either as a cruel joke or just by providence, is given this game to review. You wake up in…


R.I.P. Rally Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
R.I.P. Rally Review

RIP Rally is an arena combat game where you drive around a rally car with a turret mounted machine gun, ploughing down and shooting waves of zombies, trying to survive for as long as possible while completing missions, collecting coins, and refilling your health and ammo reserves. If that already sounds like a good time, you don't need the rest of this review, but for those of you unconvinced or on the fence, let's explore this freemium title. Essentially the game plays like a twin-st…

Bottle Cap Blitz Review

Review Big Pixel Studios By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
Bottle Cap Blitz Review

Now usually games like Bottle Cap Blitz can be easy to discount. They're very simple premises (even more simple than when a game here is praised for being simple), they're high score games, and they offer brief gameplay bursts with a small dose of progression to keep people enthralled. There's nothing wrong with this formula. Games like Paper Toss were able to use its simple premise and mechanics to make something fiendishly addictive, and funnily enough Bottle Cap Blitz is in the same…
