Sky Tourist Blitz Trip Review

Review Zoltan Lading By Alex Beech, 2 weeks, 1 day ago
Sky Tourist Blitz Trip Review

Sky Tourist Blitz Trip is an odd little puzzle game that suspends its hero right in the middle of the action. Hung like a tacky air freshener, the dangling protagonist must be coaxed upwards though a series of physics based conundrums, collecting blocks and crystals on his way. You control the tourist's ascent through the vertically-scrolling levels by swinging him back and forth on a line between two rockets. Raising one missile higher than the other slides the little chap towards th…

Hellraid: The Escape Review

Review Shortbreak Studios By Alex Beech, 2 weeks, 2 days ago
Hellraid: The Escape Review

Hellraid: The Escape's bleak, medieval environments drip with chilling atmosphere. You begin in dismal dungeon, transfixed on a giant being that’s bearing down you. The creature makes it's way towards your fragile form and swings a massive axe. Moments later you come-to, sealed in a coffin. A few taps of the screen and you are free of the tomb, but still trapped in the underground jail, surrounded by jangling chains and the bones of your cellmates. Your single goal in this…

Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake Review

Review Cartoon Network By Alex Beech, 4 weeks, 1 day ago
Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake Review

It was great being a kid. We could talk to our dog in the street without people thinking were crazy, and on our birthday we could eat cake for breakfast without feeling guilty. Its this sense of wonder and delight that Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake instantly awakens - except, as the name suggests, there will be no cake because monsters have stolen it. Taking control of a young boy named Niko, you follow your trusty dachshund Bazooka in search of your missing cake. The innocent story s…

99 Bricks Wizard Academy Review

Review WeirdBeard By Alex Beech, 1 month, 2 weeks ago
99 Bricks Wizard Academy Review

99 Bricks Wizard Academy doesn't waste a moment introducing you to its magical, Tetris-inspired world. The charming puzzler has you fill the pointy shoes of a trainee wizard, and sets you the task of building yourself a tower to call home. To erect this structure, you must direct Tetris-style blocks into place upon a narrow foundation. You drag each shape toward its intended destination with your finger, while a single tap of the screen allows you to rotate them as they fall…

Bubble Witch Saga 2 Review

Review King.com Limited By Alex Beech, 1 month, 3 weeks ago
Bubble Witch Saga 2 Review

At first glance it would be easy to accuse social gaming giant King of resting on its laurels with Bubble Witch Saga 2. Dig deeper, however, and you find that the orb-launching match-three formula has received a tweak or two for its second outing. The most obvious change is the improved visual design. Gone are the moody stills of three hag-like witches, replaced instead by vivid backgrounds and the cheerful Stella, who looks a bit like Barbie in a pointy hat. While the new visuals po…

BIOSIS Review

Review Kostyantyn Salanda By Alex Beech, 1 month, 3 weeks ago
BIOSIS Review

Apparently, Biosis is a suffix that means “mode of life." Fittingly, it's a great way to describe the main theme of this squishy, creature-manipulating 2D physics puzzler. You must guide a tiny organism through a hostile world towards a goal. Your little blob is a bit useless, however, so you must rely on other creatures in the world to push and pull it towards its destination. Every one of the lifeforms you use to guide your organism to the exit has two states. Tapping on a cr…

Kiwanuka Review

Review CMA Megacorp By Alex Beech, 1 month, 4 weeks ago
Kiwanuka Review

Kiwanuka's title screen, with its beautiful geometric visual design and psychedelic soundtrack, sets the tone for the levels to follow. What isn’t immediately apparent is that this charming puzzler is built on a single, elegant gameplay mechanic that perhaps doesn't offer enough depth to support the weight of an entire game. Cast in the role of a tiny wizard, you must use your magic to escort a host of followers across a series of 2D levels. Touching anywhere on the screen produ…

iON Bond Review

Review Stewart Hogarth By Alex Beech, 2 months ago
iON Bond Review

The goal of iON Bond is to bring together pairs of coloured ions across black and white mazes. At its most simple, this involves tracing a line between positively and negatively charged spheres. Once connected, the respective charges - positive or negative - take effect, and they are either repulsed or attracted. Successfully fuse all the ions onscreen, and you're on to the next level. It doesn’t take long for iON Bond to pile on more complex elements. The first big change comes…

Godzilla - Smash3 Review

Review Rogue Play, Inc. By Alex Beech, 2 months, 1 week ago
Godzilla - Smash3 Review

We wonder what went through Rogue Play’s collective heads when they got the Godzilla licence. Given the leash of the world's most iconic building-mashing monster, we can’t work out at what point they felt that a match three puzzler would be the best fit. But while Godzilla - Smash3 may not offer the most apt use the king of lizards, it does offer some monstrous elements. Controlling Godzilla, you must battle the military, smash buildings, and defeat other monsters. While y…

Republique Review

Review Camouflaj LLC By Alex Beech, 2 months, 3 weeks ago
Republique Review

République begins abruptly with you receiving a call from the panicked hero, Hope. Trapped in a totalitarian state, the young girl longs for freedom. Believing that you are her last chance of escape, Hope asks you to use your hacking skills to manipulate the city’s electronics to help free her. It is a strange take on the stealth genre, that has you leading Hope remotely through the oppressive world. The 1984-inspired fiction sees the walls covered with surveillance camer…

Bridge Constructor Médiéval Review

Bridge Constructor Médiéval Review

Mechanically, Bridge Constructor Médiéval adds very little to the existing Bridge Constructor formula. As before, building your bridge to cross the game’s various chasms is a simple process of selecting the desired materials from the menu and then tracing them into existence within a virtual grid. You have to work within a budget, making the construction process a little more tricky, especially if you want to achieve each stage’s more challengi…

Third Eye Crime: Act 1 Review

Review Gameblyr, LLC By Alex Beech, 3 months, 1 week ago
Third Eye Crime: Act 1 Review

Stealth games always run the risk of leaving you inactive. By necessity, they demand you pay attention to the world around you, learning patterns and waiting for your moment to skulk unseen through the shadows. Unfortunately, this means that rather than playing, much of your time is spent simply watching. Developer Moonshot Games clearly understood this problem, and has tried to address it with Third Eye Crime: Act 1. You take control of Rothko, a master thief. Set in noir ‘50s…

Monument Valley Review

Review ustwo™ By Alex Beech, 3 months, 1 week ago
Monument Valley Review

It would be easy to describe Monument Valley as an interactive M.C, Escher lithograph. But, while the game's topsy turvy environments certainly owe much to the Dutch artist’s work, giving you the ability to interact with a world of perspective-bending vistas, it is more than just a clever picture come to life. The aim of the game is to guide Princess Ida to the top of a series of towers. There are ten stages to complete, each containing a unique piece of architecture t…

Hitman GO Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Alex Beech, 3 months, 2 weeks ago
Hitman GO Review

Hitman GO is not the game fans of the series might expect. Rather than take the form of a standard third-person action game, Hitman GO plays out like a strategic board game. You begin by selecting a contract. Each of these mission play out on their own uniquely styled board. The settings range from a country club setting to more industrial locations, each with their own tile sets and enemy types. The goal is to guide Agent 47’s through the grid-based play area to his…

Instantion Review

Review Travis Fincaryk By Alex Beech, 3 months, 2 weeks ago
Instantion Review

Like many of the best teachers, Instantion doesn't tell you the answers. From the very beginning, the 2.5D action puzzler is quite happy to leave you struggling with challenges, in the expectation that you'll eventually suss them out for yourself. This fits neatly with the game's virtual wire-frame world, which gives you the sense you're running simulated experiments under laboratory conditions. You have to hop your avatar over obstacles, and activate doors and bridges to get to…
