Robot Unicorn Attack 2 Review

Review [adult swim] By Dave Flodine, 12 months ago
Robot Unicorn Attack 2 Review

It's been a couple years since Adult Swim graced us with Robot Unicorn Attack, a fantastical romp with a unicorn through a fairy tale world, complete with the biggest earworm of a soundtrack to ever grace iOS gaming. Seriously, “Always, I want to be with you”... it's in your head now, isn't it? So what do the creators have in store for a sequel. Well the usual mantra for sequels is more of the same, but bigger and better, and while that is certainly the case here, they've l…

Melodive Review

Review johan gjestland By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 1 month ago
Melodive Review

As the medium matures, discussions about what constitutes a game or not are getting more prominent, as the traditional tropes of win states, lose states, and game mechanics get overshadowed or left behind by narrative and audio/visual experiences. This new balancing of how some games are put together, and what they elicit from their players will continue as more and more games like Melodive are released. There is a high score game hidden in what this title offers, but the mechanics and…

Real Racing 3 (Worldwide Release) Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 1 month ago
Real Racing 3 (Worldwide Release) Review

Editor's Note: As of the 28th of February the game is live across the world. Updates to the game have resolved minor bugs, however most importantly at the time of this writing 'repairs' no longer take time to complete. You'll still be considerably out of pocket, but it will put you back on the road sooner after taking unavoidable damage (such as from a TSM-controlled AI driver). Despite this the core problem afflicting RR3's playability remains in-tact; the game is devoid of meaningful…

TABLE TOP RACING Review

Review Playrise Edge Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 2 months ago
TABLE TOP RACING Review

When reviewing a title I often come across an internal dialogue in the form of a line of questioning that ends up sounding a little like this: "Where's all the depth? Shouldn't there be more stuff I can do?", "Does it matter? Are you having fun?", "Actually I am, but I'm afraid it won't last". For a game sporting as little as 8 stages and 10 vehicles, you'd think the fun would quickly run out, but Playrise Edge have nailed Table Top Racing's 'Kart' gameplay so perfectly that it's hard…

Terminal Escape Review

Review Opsive, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 2 months ago
Terminal Escape Review

In the last year or so, there's been an increasing number of games about airport scanners and airport security. Poking fun at the inconvenience and craziness of modern airport security measures can make for enjoyable play, especially if you take the current measures of the industry to a ridiculous conclusion of a Temple Run-esque gauntlet that needs to be overcome before you can reach your terminal. Terminal Escape does exactly that through short levels where obstacles need to be avoid…

Cracking Sands Review

Review Polarbit By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 3 months ago
Cracking Sands Review

Going solo isn't always easy, especially when a major success like Reckless Racing 2 is under your belt. Polarbit and Pixelbite made a wonderful team and the end result was a racer that may still defining the high-water mark for the top-down racing genre. Recently Pixelbite made a small splash with Repulze, but something was missing - it lacked a sense of whimsy. Now, Polarbit releases their own racer, Cracking Sands, and while the concept is fun and calls upon the shade of Mario Kart,…

Noble Nutlings Review

Review Boomlagoon By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
Noble Nutlings Review

Boomlagoon, the makers of Noble Nutlings have received a lot of buzz thanks to being a company sporting ex-Rovio employees (you know, the developers behind Angry Birds). Before Angry Birds was a hit, Rovio had released many other games for mobile platforms - obviously these did OK for the company as they stayed in business, but what we're saying is it can take a lot of tries before hitting on something that really resonates. Keep this in mind for the review. Each level of Noble Nutli…

Repulze Review

Review Pixelbite By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
Repulze Review

You know, I kind of wish this game was terrible so I could call it, 'Repulze-ive', but as reviewers we never wish for games to be terrible, and this one isn't... so that's good! Repulze is a racer that takes many of its cues from Wipeout. It's got the sleek finned hover cars, it's got the pulsing soundtrack, and it has pretty impressive visuals. It also has a polarity mechanic, but we'll get to that later. Apparently you're a test pilot for these experimental hover cars, at the mercy o…

Joe Danger Review

Review Hello Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 3 months ago
Joe Danger Review

The original Joe Danger for the PSN was a heck of a ride - fluid, fast and packed full of collectables and objectives to complete, it was joy to play. Now Hello Games have brought their stunt-riding racer-come-high-scorer to the App Store and while it can take some getting used to the manic pace, Joe Danger Touch is no less addictive or fun than its bigger brother. Where the original title had more of an exploratory edge to its gameplay (akin to a hybrid of Excitebike and Trials HD),…

Car Jack Streets: Directors Cut Review

Review Tagplay By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
Car Jack Streets: Directors Cut Review

The original Car Jack Streets is lauded for being one of the first Grand Theft Auto style games to be released on the App Store, in this case emulating the top down perspective of the first two titles in that series. A little over three years later and the Director's Cut is released. What are the differences you ask? Increased frame rate, retina graphics, and achievement and leaderboard support. How does the actual game hold up after all this time, especially now that the GTA games the…

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…

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…

Need for Speed™ Most Wanted Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 5 months ago
Need for Speed™ Most Wanted Review

If Electronic Arts is demonstrating anything with Need for Speed Most Wanted for the iOS platform, it's an interest in stripping back their racers to the core experience. For some this may be an absolute boon - mobile platforms are often used in short bursts, so things like a story and too many fiddly customizations are simply a distraction compared to the main feast of burning rubber down city and country roads alike. Unfortunately Most Wanted goes even further than that and instead…

MonoLoco Review

Review GoldMine Studio By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
MonoLoco Review

Monoloco has a pretty funny premise presented through its intro movie if nothing else. So in the zoo, there is this super intelligent simian kept behind glass. For some reason he is extremely annoyed at all the passers by who are nose deep in their mobile phones. Perhaps they should be paying attention to him. He breaks free, and what follows in an endless runner with an attack button, where you have to flee the zoo as well as kick as many people as possible so they will drop their pho…

Skyriders Review

Review Inverse Blue By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 6 months ago
Skyriders Review

Skyriders by Inverse Blue treads a fine line. Skill-based time-trial racers are notorious for their sharp difficulty curves, and this space-themed title provides no less of a challenge, however clever level design and simple, yet insanely fun gameplay keeps you coming back for more punishment. First appearances may make you think of games like F-Zero and you'd be on the right path, however instead of racing AI opponents you're attempting to beat your own time and score. In order to do…
