Mr. Crab Review

Review Illusion Labs By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 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, 7 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, 7 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…

Dungeon Hunter 4 [First Impressions] Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
Dungeon Hunter 4 [First Impressions] Review

[Editor's Note: Although we've had two days with Dungeon Hunter 4, the nature of the freemium gameplay makes it hard to give a full assessment (thanks in part to the multiplayer proving difficult to test). It should also be noted we made a $5 gem pack purchase; we will highlight how this has affected our time with the game.] There are moments when I regret my final decision after reviewing a game - Dungeon Hunter 3 has haunted me to this day and managed to get a free pass based on its…

Injustice: Gods Among Us Review

Review Warner Bros. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
Injustice: Gods Among Us Review

I have to admit, I like the idea of a company taking the time to whet the appetite of their fans by providing a portable version of a title they're yet to release. We saw it back at the release of Mass Effect 3, and now we're seeing it again with Injustice: Gods Among Us from Warner Bros. Of course any expectations of such a title being brought over in full, or at least as a complete brawler (albeit with a lowered roster ala Street Fighter's iOS releases) have been completely shot dow…

Robi: Cosmic Savior Review

Review GramGames By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 7 months ago
Robi: Cosmic Savior Review

In a lot of these planetary defense games, there's a real sense of scope and responsibility. You're responsible for the continued existence of a planet beset either by aliens or asteroids (or alien controlled asteroids). Robi: Cosmic Saviour takes a more relaxed approach... in theory. His size plus the layout of the planet makes you think that this little robot lives peacefully out on some small moon, but his home is constantly under siege by space monsters. This is where the peaceful…

[UPDATED] Nimble Quest Review

Review NimbleBit LLC By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 7 months ago
[UPDATED] Nimble Quest Review

When it comes to the freemium model, Nimblebit are one of the better developers at offering unique and interesting game experiences with a no cash up front policy, and thankfully their games aren't too inundated with in-app purchases or wasting your time as a gamer. Their latest effort Nimble Quest takes the foundation of the ever popular mobile experience, Snake, and turns it into a simple roleplaying game, albeit one that is more interested in lining up heroes than leveling one up (a…

Dream Tim Review

Review Faizan Kasbati By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 7 months ago
Dream Tim Review

Not to be overly judgmental of the protagonist of Dream Tim, but if you're dreaming of putting yourself in an endless runner, regardless of the reasons or the reward at the end of the unlockable chapters, you might need to get yourself some professional help. Yes, Dream Tim is the latest in the endless runner genre, but it decides to take a bold stance, and do away with the normal run and jump gameplay, replacing it with a swiping mechanic to destroy monsters and grab coins. If it actu…

Sorted! Review

Review Mighty Kingdom By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
Sorted! Review

Sorted! by Mighty Kingdom finds itself falling in to that niche category of time-wasters that can best be described as 'micro games'. If you've ever played a WarioWare game you'll know what I'm talking about - you're presented with a rapid-fire series of screens where you have to figure out and succeed at the 'game' placed before you in a matter of seconds. However, unlike WarioWare, Sorted! sticks to one game, and while it does vary things up, the game feels limited and lacks a hook t…

[UPDATE] Order & Chaos Duels - Trading Card Game Review

Review Gameloft By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 7 months ago
[UPDATE] Order & Chaos Duels - Trading Card Game Review

[Editor's Note: After further gameplay testing we've noted several points in the campaign where the AI is provided with what can only be described as severly imbalanced abilities and decks. These will act as roadblocks preventing progression, though the exact placing of said roadblocks will depend on your character and their deck/abilities. Sadly it comes down to luck as to whether you'll draw better than your opponent in these cases and it would be good to see the pogression evened ou…

Smash the Office Review

Review Tuokio Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
Smash the Office Review

If you've seen Office Space, then you'll know about its famous (or is that infamous?) printer smashing scene. It's a cathartic scene, especially if you've spent any extended amount of time in an office environment, but what if you could take things even further than the printer? Smash the Office isn't a title that seeks to ensconce players in a deep and thoughtful world. No, you get 60 seconds to smash up everything you can in an effort to score points and earn coins so you can do it a…

Snoopy Coaster Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 7 months ago
Snoopy Coaster Review

Snoopy Coaster is insidious. Last year Dave reviewed Madcoaster, and thought that it was an intriguing premise made far too forgiving, so much so that the game became quite boring. Well then why is Snoopy Coaster better when it's basically the same game with a different skin? well because Dave is a Peanuts fan of course, and while it's easy to sneer at a game using a licensed property to try and pull in fans of that property, the sad truth is that it works. Now don't get us wrong, this…

Pug Run Review

Review Tic Toc Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 8 months ago
Pug Run Review

[This game was featured as the Mini-Review for the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 22nd of March, 2013] I love pugs. There's nothing strange about that; many people love pugs and I happen to wear it on my sleeve. Their derpy eyes, their inability to breathe properly, their innate clumsy nature... what's not to love? So I empathize with the boy in Pug Run who is denied owning a puppy, and in his frustration he draws comic after comic of him and his dream 'best friend'. That's where you com…

Le Vamp Review

Review High Voltage Software By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 8 months ago
Le Vamp Review

Oh the woes of being a vampire child. You want to go outside and play... but you're a vampire! In Le Vamp, it's up to you as the player to protect the titular tike as he frolics through the forest, and by frolic, I mean evading capture by an angry mob of villagers, staying nourished on delicious blood pigs, avoiding the sunlight, and not getting hamstrung by all the other nasty things that lurk with-in. It's a harder job than it sounds. Every obstacle has a gesture assigned to it. Fli…

Collapsticks Review

Review Rumilus Design By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 8 months ago
Collapsticks Review

You know those puzzles where you have a bunch of matchsticks arranged in a particular pattern, then by simply moving one or more you can create something entirely different? Yeah, Collapsticks isn't anything like that (sorry about the swerve), but it's still a puzzler with fairly cut and dry solutions. This last part is something to note given that the game uses a fairly realistic physics engine to handle collisions. However, with the board being preset with all the pieces in place, t…
