Eliss Infinity Review

Review Little Eyes LLC By Alex Beech, 5 months, 2 weeks ago
Eliss Infinity Review

Steph Thirion's Eliss Infinity is, put simply, a game about disc disposal. You're tasked with keeping a series of spawning circles out of each other's way, until you are able to drag them into black hole and remove them from the field of play. At first, this is as straightforward as it sounds. Each disk randomly fades into existence around the screen. It's up to you to move them into matching holes with whichever fingers you have spare. The stage is only complete when the requir…

Luxuria Superbia Review

Review Tale of Tales By Dave Flodine, 7 months, 2 weeks ago
Luxuria Superbia Review

More and more, games designers are attmepting to include 'mature' content in their word. Usually, this translates into violence, swearing, and the inclusion of scantily-clad, impossibly proportioned women. However, that kind of mature content is often delivered in a fairly adolescent way. When playing Luxuria Superbia we felt that we were playing a truly adult game, one that might even make you feel a little uncomfortable. Luxuria Superbia is a game of touch and sensation. Patience p…

Deemo Review

Review Rayark Inc. By Dave Flodine, 8 months, 1 week ago
Deemo Review

It's been a while since gamers fell out of love with rhythm games. This was mostly due to the over-saturation of rock music sims driven by plastic guitars, but also because of lack of creativity in the games themselves. Deemo does its best to address these issues by not only providing feedback as you tap and slide, but also presenting a fantasy through the melding of music and haunting artwork. The story, such as it is, tells the melancholic tale of a lonely creature who finds the co…

Pinball Rocks HD iPad Review

Pinball Rocks HD iPad Review

Pinball Rocks HD is an odd franchise. On the surface, it's a free-to-play pinball title, featuring a selection of purchasable rock 'n roll-themed tables. However, browse through the song selection menu, and you discover the trappings of a music game, one which is keen for you to shell out cash for extra tunes. In actual fact, the expandable soundtrack is just that: a soundtrack. The only way music impacts gameplay is thematically. While the basic free-to-play table is dressed in gener…

Way of the Dogg Review

Review 505 Games (US), Inc. By James Gilmour, 1 year, 1 month ago
Way of the Dogg Review

It may surprise you to hear this, but Way of the Dogg, a blacksploitation, time manipulating rhythm fighter starring rasta rapper Snoop Lion, isn't zany enough. You'd think a game that casts Snoop as a kung fu guru who possesses the secrets of time travel would be chock full of psychedelic visuals, crazy characters, and inventive special moves. Instead we have a perfectly competent rhythm game, one which arguably works better on iOS than it does on consoles, but which fails to take f…

Color Zen Review

Review Large Animal Games By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 1 month ago
Color Zen Review

Sometimes it's amazing how far you can push a premise. Take Color Zen, for example. You are presented with a series of coloured shapes. By moving shapes of the same colour together, you can dye the background the same hue,. This also eliminates the shapes from the field of play. The goal is to eventually reach the colour on the edges of the stage, leaving nothing but a single shade. A simple premise. Some would say, “too simple”, but through some very competent design, flui…

FREEQ Review

Review Psychic Bunny By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 2 months ago
FREEQ Review

Radio drama is making a comeback. Before television, people used to listen to serialised programming on their wireless, tuning into tales of mystery, intrigue, drama, and action. Games like Freeq show that the medium is still as engaging as ever, but perhaps that's also due to the interactivity. See, not only content with telling you a story of apocalypse and time travel, Freeq has you making choices to influence the outcome of this future that has yet to be written. Freeqing is a tec…

Cowbell Hero Review

Review Digital Hero Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 5 months ago
Cowbell Hero Review

Digital Hero Games can't seem to let go of the Saturday Night Live sketch involving Will Ferrel and Christopher Walken. You know the one I'm talking about, it even has its own Wikipedia entry and haunts the actors to this day. Of course I'm talking about 'More Cowbell' and Cowbell Hero is a singular-minded Guitar Hero clone that (if nothing else) features some rockin' tunes, so I say why not? We'll not concern you with the story, though it does go to great lengths to justify its prota…

Wave Trip Review

Review Lucky Frame By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 5 months ago
Wave Trip Review

If you hadn't noticed, Lucky Frame have a bit of a theme going on with their releases. Music - and in particular, player-generated music - is a driving force behind many of the titles they've released. Wave Trip extends the theme by pairing it with a unique take on the tried and true 'touch to fly' gameplay that was once so popular. I say once, but those who have played Jetpack Joyride should already be familiar with the basics of the game. Touch the screen to fly up, and let go to fl…

THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 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…

infinite Review

Review Nexus Game Studio By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 8 months ago
infinite Review

When you call your game Infinite, you create certain expectations in the player's mind. Seeing that this game is a consistent travel through the colored vastness of space to collect enough energy to birth stars, while dodging abstract obstacles and oppressive black holes, the name is apt. One touch control is the name of the game here. Your... whatever you are will orbit the planet, and touching the screen will extend that orbit outwards, allowing collection of energy that is further…

DEMONS' SCORE Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
DEMONS' SCORE Review

When you bring together notable composers responsible for the stunning soundtracks of games like Final Fantasy 11, Nier, and Secret of Mana, you’d like to think their work is showcased appropriately. I’m not entirely sold on the ‘appropriate’ part when it comes to the magic-transforming-teenager-and-skimpy-clothes department of Demons’ Soul by Square Enix, but the rhythm-based gameplay is perhaps the best way to showcase its music. You play as Ser…

Michael Jackson The Experience Review

Review Ubisoft By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
Michael Jackson The Experience Review

Michael Jackson the Experience is indeed a well made game. With that said, there's a litmus test that needs to be applied before purchase. Do you have fond memories of growing up with Michael Jackson's pop music? If the answer is yes, then chances are you will enjoy yourself. If you're not a fan of the music, despite this being a solid rhythm game with impeccable presentation, we would recommend you look elsewhere. The game begins with a tutorial that really doesn't explain how the ga…
