Robi: Cosmic Savior Review

Review GramGames By Dave Flodine, 2 years 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

[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

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

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, 2 years 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, 2 years, 1 month 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, 2 years, 1 month 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, 2 years, 1 month 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, 2 years, 1 month 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, 2 years, 1 month 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…

Towelfight 2: The Monocle of Destiny Review

Towelfight 2: The Monocle of Destiny Review

There you are, spending a quiet day with your monocle and your pug, when suddenly a temporal rift opens up, whisking you away to a world where one God is planning on using you to overthrow his rival and thus take control of the land once again. In exchange for your help, he'll send you back home. Towel Fight 2: The Monocle of Destiny doesn't take itself too seriously, which you'd expect of a game where your primary attack is using your enchanted monocle to hurl animals to their doom.…

Sushi Mushi Review

Review Aspyr Media, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
Sushi Mushi Review

Some game names are just fun to say, whether you put on a silly accent or not. Sushi Mushi is such a game. Of course a fun name doesn't necessarily translate into a fun to play game, but that's of course why we have this review. So what is Sushi Mushi? It's a match-3 game that works on two levels, where you roll as much sushi as possible to feed your gluttonous yet cute little monster, who rises through the ranks of sushi roller until you get to the prestigious black belt. Oh, and it's…

Super Stickman Golf 2 Review

Review Noodlecake Studios Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
Super Stickman Golf 2 Review

When we first encountered Super Stickman Golf by Noodlecake Studios it was hard to keep our joy contained. At its core the game was a by-the-numbers 2D golfing title, however the clever addition of power-ups that required skill to obtain, and added even more depth and gameplay options once obtained made it a solid gold title. Super Stickman Golf 2 has a huge legacy to live up to, and while the core once again remains the same, it's the small details that continue to keep the series run…

Fury of the Gods Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
Fury of the Gods Review

Smashing small, angry humans in to a fine red paste (or an even finer black powder) with the powers of a god is something we've had fun with before in games like Babel Rising. So it only makes sense that Spectral Games would seek to exploit the mythos rich Greek pantheon for their take on the almost literal 'tower defense' genre in Fury of the Gods. You're given control of one of three different gods (Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades) and tasked with protecting their temple from the angry hu…

Grow Dammit! iPad Review

Review Poio By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
Grow Dammit! iPad Review

Editor's Note: We apologize for any confusion - Grow Dammit! has been given a rating of 3/5 on our system (3.4 actual) and did not intend for a '0/5' to be showing. Once again, the title is very competent and we can only hope it gets the attention it deserves! I find it surprising that despite there being almost a three year period since Helsing's Fire was released on the App Store, few (if any) developers have tried to replicate its light and shadow puzzle mechanics. Penumbear manage…
