Tiny Troopers 2: Special Ops Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 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, 5 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, 5 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…

Robot Unicorn Attack 2 Review

Review [adult swim] By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 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, 5 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, 6 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, 6 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, 6 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…

HEAVY - sword Review

Review ashley jackson By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 6 months ago
HEAVY - sword Review

  Heavy Sword is a very classic soft of platformer. As the unlikely hero Pike, you must combat evil hordes in order to rescue the captured princess Lucinda. To aid you as you traipse through level after level is a trusty sword, as well as the ability to bash power-up blocks with your head, and the ability to stomp on top of all your foes. Yes, this game borrows many ideas from the platforming greats. Does this make it a copycat game or does it use these elements to create somethi…

Bottle Cap Blitz Review

Review Big Pixel Studios By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 6 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…


Fish Out Of Water! Review

Review Halfbrick Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 6 months ago
Fish Out Of Water! Review

The success of Jetpack Joyride has given Halfbrick Studios a kind of blueprint for future releases to follow. Fish Out Of Water! is the latest from the Aussie studio, however you'll be trading in your skilled trigger finger for something a little more relaxed. The aim of the game is to score as high as possible from a panel of crabs. Each one will assign you an individual score (ala gymnastics) and your final is the average of them all - just watch out for the final crab as he'll mark…

Strategy & Tactics: World War II iPad Review

Review HeroCraft Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 6 months ago
Strategy & Tactics: World War II iPad Review

Gamers who typically enjoy strategy titles invariably also enjoy the challenge that comes from seeing a mountain-sized burden of knowledge and conquering it to become masters of their virtual domain. Strategy & Tactics: World War II was once tied to the Hearts of Iron franchise - a series some strategy fans should recognize - and while the mobile title reduces the complexity significantly, it's no less opaque in its mechanics. In other words, be prepared to fail, and fail often as…

Mr. Crab Review

Review Illusion Labs By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 6 months ago
Mr. Crab Review

Everything old is new again thanks to the iOS platform, and while the rotating-tower platformer is certainly not a new one, Mr. Crab manages to bring a breath of fresh air to the dusty concept. And hey, not everyone is an ancient curmudgeon like me, so party on you crazy kids. Speaking of party, prepare to get your hat-head ready as Mr. Crab has a penchant for noggin-covers. This is more of an aside, but as Dave has mentioned before, gamers love their hats - it's a mystery for the age…

Cling! Review

Review First5 Games By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 6 months ago
Cling! Review

Instead of a platformer, Cling is amusingly referred to as a 'pegformer', and this is as accurate a description as any. As a capsule toy in a vending machine, you get stuck on your way to the hands of a small child, and now your squid-y tendrils must navigate the pegs, clear the hazards, and reach the end of each stage safely. There are two control schemes that you can switch between with a simple shake of your iPhone. The first is a system where by touching the screen in the directio…

Dream Chaser Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 6 months ago
Dream Chaser Review

With so many endless runners, it relieves us game reviewers when we see a new idea brought to the table, as small a change as it may be. What can stand to infuriate us more than just an average entry into this genre is if the change ends being to the detriment of the whole experience. That's where we find ourselves with Dream Chaser, an endless runner that while having an endless mode also includes a story mode, where the mechanics and intricacies of the game are spread out alongside a…
