THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 4 months ago
THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY Review

Square Enix certainly have rhythm game’s on their mind of late, but for a company that boasts so many classic songs, very few (if any) were exploited to drive droves of gamers to their welcoming bosom. Other titles may have featured composers that are now famous amongst the gaming community, but Theatrhythm features the songs that brought them to our attention - notably the large anthology of songs they’ve written for the Final Fantasy series. The core premise and executio…

Into the Dead Review

Review PikPok By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 4 months ago
Into the Dead Review

Oh look, another zombie apocalypse game. What? It's an endless runner as well, that has a store to upgrade your chances of survival and the length of the game? Gee, we haven't seen anything like this before, he said sarcastically. With all this being the case, Into the Dead does something astonishing. It offers a breathtakingly gorgeous engaging gaming experience. Load the game up, and you'll start right near a crashed helicopter. Turning around, there's nothing but fields and the und…

Freeze! Review

Review Andreas von Lepel By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 4 months ago
Freeze! Review

There haven't been too many, but there's something enjoyable about games that stick you in small curved level, and ask you to use the iPhone's tilt controls and the power of physics to get the character you control to safety. Freeze is the latest of these, and it comes to us wrapped in a 50s monster movie shell. It certainly adds an amount of mood and character to the game, but the big question is of course, how does it play? The answer to that questions is. “adequately”.…

Endless Road Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 4 months ago
Endless Road Review

Maybe it's jaded memory talking, but there's really not many good things that come to mind when talking about the arcade driving classic Outrun. Perhaps the aspect that stands out the most though is the decision making process in which path you took each leg of the race. While this had no real bearing on the gameplay, a change of environment is always a welcome addition in any game, and it is this exact mechanic that resurfaces in Endless Road... though any other comparisons to Outrun…

Pong®World Review

Review Atari By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 4 months ago
Pong®World Review

There's a small backstory to Pong World by Atari and zGames. To celebrate the game's 40h anniversary, Atari sought out Indie developers to update the classic arcade game, and the end result is a fantastic concept that gives the game a shufflepuck-like spin by giving the player direct control over the action. However a great idea can only take you so far when it's smothered by a relentless freemium model of almost endless monotonous gameplay, and design decisions that hamper the gamepl…

The Bowling Dead Review

The Bowling Dead Review

[This title is featured as the Mini-Review for the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 30th of November, 2012] It's a thin premise, but The Bowling Dead by Slant Six Games and Activision places you in the unusual position of a zombie apocalypse survivor who discovers a bowling ball that seems to be the only thing that can stop them. Obviously the first part isn't new, but the second part results in a strangely addictive title. It's a sort of mash up between Full Fat's Zombie Flick and a basi…

3volution - A Primordial Soup Challenge Review

Review ZAKI By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 4 months ago
3volution - A Primordial Soup Challenge Review

Why is the E in evolution turned around into a 3 for the sake of this title? Well because the whole concept of primordial evolution is apparently aided by three helpers named Nunstuck, Git, and Slotermeyer. 3Volution has you evolving through life forms in what amounts to sort of a high speed soccer game, complete with power-ups and obstacles creating an experience that can be unfair and over before you know it, but set up so that you instantly press retry to give the whole affair anoth…

Heroes of Order & Chaos - Multiplayer Online Game Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 5 months ago
Heroes of Order & Chaos - Multiplayer Online Game Review

For those that enjoy MOBAs (Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas), the idea of being able to play a portable version of a game they may have loved for years is something equally beautiful and terrible to think about. On one hand the sheer complexity inherent in a genre with such a diverse amount of heroes and items (and the combinations there of) can be mind-boggling; a truly difficult thing to replicate on a touch-based mobile gaming device. On the other hand, Action-RPGs have proven the…

Hungry Shark Evolution Review

Review Future Games of London By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Hungry Shark Evolution Review

There have been plenty of games through the years that have let us swim around under the sea as Dolphins, but very few that let us gain control of the master predator himself, Mr Shark (cause you damn well better approach these merciless killing machines with respect). Hungry Shark Evolution changes all that by presenting us with a game based on a stunning contrast. The serene beauty of swimming around the calm blue ocean, punctuated by a feeding frenzy of tropical fish, turtles, and m…

FreeSkate Xtreme Review

Review PunchBox Studios By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
FreeSkate Xtreme Review

The tag line for Freeskate Xtreme on the App Store touts a "Kinect-like experience on ios devices". That's partially true. This is an inline skating game wrapped in cel shaded visuals meant to evoke memories of Jet Set Radio, which is a much better inline skating game. It's not to be unkind, but the biggest selling point here, the Kinect-like experience (which utilizes the iPhone's head tracking software), is what brings the game from an average yet somewhat enjoyable experience crashi…

Super Tiny Leap Review

Review Game Atelier By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Super Tiny Leap Review

One thing that's been great about the success of the App Store has been all the simple yet addictive high score arcade titles that developers have been experimenting with. For a gamer in his 30s like myself, it reflects a simpler time when these games ruled the arcades, and had players vying for position on those hallowed leaderboards. Super Tiny Leap takes this idea, an old school aesthetic, and turns it towards the vertical climbing genre that Doodle Jump popularized all those years…

Storm the Train Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Storm the Train Review

Upon first loading up Storm the Train, you can be forgiven thinking you're about to play an action or stealth based game centered around robbing trains. Instead we find ourselves with a Monster Dash type run and gun as you hop from one train to the next, collecting new weapons and loads of coins as you blast away the undead, robot hordes, and even ninjas. And just like Monster Dash, the controls are a simple affair of on-screen directional buttons, a jump button, and of course a shoot…

Coin Army Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Coin Army Review

Have you ever played one of those coin tossing games at an arcade (I know arcades aren't exactly common any more unless you live in Asia, but stick with me here)? Coin Army takes the concept of chucking coins forthwith, and trades out the opportunity to win cash and prizes with the success of a war effort... all wrapped up in a freemium package. Mmm, tasty. With the flick of a finger, you send coins out into battle. Think of them as thin, round, and shiny soldiers. Hitting tanks, comm…

SpinCraft Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
SpinCraft Review

Pyp has one more chance to be a successful galactic pizza boy, otherwise he's out of a job and out of luck. Grab your spinny pizza delivery spin thingy, and get ready for some 3D platforming and gem collection. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you... Spincraft. Now is the game worthy of such a grand introduction? Is any game really? Not by a long shot! This doesn't mean that Spincraft is a bad game though. Unpolished may be a better turn of phrase. Each level has you picking up thre…

iBomber Attack Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
iBomber Attack Review

The previous iBomber game was a rather standard Tower Defence affair. Not wanting to rest on their laurels it seems, developers Cobra Mobile have switched genres to deliver a top down tank driving, enemy shooting, and vehicle exploding experience. The question is how long is driving around war-torn maps destroying everything in sight enjoyable, and the answer to that question really rests on the player. Let's explore further. Each mission has a series of primary and secondary objectiv…
