Slingshot Racing Review

Review Crescent Moon Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Slingshot Racing Review

Touchscreens offer a unique opportunity for a developer to think outside the box to come up with something unique and interesting, but those that stray too far away may find themselves addressing a niche audience. Snowbolt Interactive and Crescent Moon Games strike a happy balance between innovation and reimagination by creating an elegant top-down racer that requires little more than a tap to play. Each track is made of ice and your 'racer' is more akin to a sled. As such it has no m…

Ion Racer Review

Review SGN By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
Ion Racer Review

Perhaps it's an unfair expectation, but upon hearing the title, we expected a sub-atomic racer where electrons and protons sped past each other, the winners gaining atomic and molecular supremacy. What we have is a free to play Wipeout-esque hover racer that plays out like an endless runner on an extended track to nowhere. With some manipulation of time and plenty of upgrades, lets see how this handles as a game. Control is standard iPhone racer fare. Tilting turns you left and right…

Shaun the Sheep - Fleece Lightning Review

Shaun the Sheep - Fleece Lightning Review

[This title was the Mini-review for the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 20th of April, 2012] Shaun is back once again, but this time he doesn't have is fellow wooly-friends in-tow. In fact he's going solo, sprinting at top speed to out-run the pigs to win the 'Fleece Lightning' competition. Each of the game's 80 levels will only take a few seconds to complete, but getting to the end isn't easy thanks to a host of hazards, not to mention the pigs themselves. Thankfully the controls are mor…

Sky Gnomes Review

Sky Gnomes Review

When one thinks of gnomes the mind often wanders to those creepy all-too-happy garden statues strewn across your neighbor's yard. Who would have thought that they were dare-devils? OK, in fantasy it's long been known that gnomes like to tinker and invent contraptions, but if we are to believe Sky Gnomes by Foursaken Media, their favorite form of entertainment is to build racing machines that allow them to plummet from the sky as fast as gnome-nly possible.Sky Gnomes is an entirely mult…

MotoHeroz Review

Review Ubisoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
MotoHeroz Review

Much like CAVE and their predictable, but almost always excellent bullet-hell shooters, RedLynx can be counted upon to add to their collection of time-trial titles. Fresh off the heels of their update to the Draw Race series, MotoHeroz is a side-on time-trial racer, but it's not entirely new for the company as it repackages a stripped down version of the Nintendo Wii title of the same name for the iOS platform. 'Stripped down' has such a nasty sound to it though and all you're likely…

Final Freeway 2R Review

Review NEWTYPE K.K. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
Final Freeway 2R Review

Weren't racing games at the arcades awesome back in the day? They usually had this giant car cabinet that you sat in. There was a steering wheel, and pedals. Sometimes even a gearbox! Sure the physics and the graphics have gotten a lot better over the years, and you can buy these elaborate peripherals for home use, but the experience is more than a little diluted. Still, we appreciate a throwback to simpler times and that's exactly what Final Freeway 2R offers. Let's get the compariso…

Retro Racing Review

Review Mr Qwak Limited By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
Retro Racing Review

It's not often that a game's title says just about everything you could hope to want to convey about a game before even loading it up. Aside from the basic top-down racing gameplay that should be familiar to just about every gamer, Amiga owners might recognize the influences from Nitro by Psygnosis - this is no mistake as the developer behind that title, Jamie Woodhouse, is also the grand designer for Retro Racing. Players are given nothing more than the ability to veer left and right…

Running Fred Review

Review Dedalord S.R.L. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Running Fred Review

Being on the front lines of App releases can make it hard to know what is currently sweeping up the market and as such I was surprised to find out that Temple Run had recently exploded. This is good news for Dedalord, the developer of the 'Fred' series as they explore the endless running option, albeit with far more tricks, traps and areas to master. The eternally unlucky Fred has found himself cursed to die at the hands of the Grim Reaper and to top things off, in his rush to escape,…

Reckless Racing 2 Review

Review Polarbit By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Reckless Racing 2 Review

Strangely it doesn’t feel as though much time has passed since Pixelbite first introduced iOS gamers to their Reckless Racing franchise, though this may be in-part thanks to a mid-year release of Reckless Getaway reminding players of what the developer can pull off. Reckless Racing 2 doesn’t disappoint as it blasts on to the App Store, showing just how top-down racing should look, feel and play on hand-held touchscreen devices. From the outset the game feels rough and toug…

Smash Cops Review

Review Hutch Games Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Smash Cops Review

There's just something about someone surviving horrible car-crash that seems to draw in a crowd, be it at a sporting event, in a movie or more excitingly in a reality TV show with cops chasing criminals. Smash Cops by Hutch Games taps in to this mental space, placing you behind the wheel of a cop chasing down criminals (amongst other tasks), bullying them off the road to make your arrest. Despite the game's lusciously realistic presentation, not an ounce of reality exists within the g…

Lunar Racer Review

Review Noodlecake Studios Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Lunar Racer Review

When Noodlecake Studios first told us that their next project was like a mash-up between Tiny Wings and Mario Kart, I have to say I was equally worried and excited about it. Excited because it's a genius little concept and worried because there's a fine line that must be tread by all 'Kart' games to remain fun no matter where you end up at the finish line. While Lunar Racer manages to pull off the basic concept with ease, a combination of control and content woes brings the game short…

Mini Motor Racing Review

Review The Binary Mill By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Mini Motor Racing Review

Sometimes, despite everything screaming at you saying it's wrong, a game can manage to remain compelling. This is how Mini Motor Racing feels and despite The Binary Mill's best efforts the game is realistically far from perfect... and yet the next level loads up much like the last and the numbers keep going up and up and up. The first thing that grabs you about the racer is its cute aesthetic, with its miniaturized world populated with chubbily proportioned vehicles ranging from Sport…

Road Warrior Racing Multiplayer - by Top Free Apps and Games Review

Review Top Free Apps and Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Road Warrior Racing Multiplayer - by Top Free Apps and Games Review

Mobjoy has two hills to fight up against when a reviewer such as myself tackles a game called 'Road Warrior'. Firstly you're invoking a movie series (even if it's unintentional) that has long since entered the pop-culture zeitgeist as a cult classic, secondly I'm an Australian, making said cult classic all the more precious. So with this in mind, does a free side-scrolling racer have the goods to match up to such high expectations? OK, so this is a bit unfair, but the game's post-apoc…

RPM: Gymkhana Racing Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
RPM: Gymkhana Racing Review

When it comes to sports and racing games, players usually fall into two camps. Do you prefer a simulation game style, or an arcade one? RPM falls in the latter category as it is focused primarily on drifting, and accomplishing many varied and strange tasks while drifting. The game is controlled from an overhead 3rd person view. Hitting the accelerator will propel your car forward but since the slightest shift in turn will begin the drifting that is at the center of the game, you need…

Cosmic Cab Review

Review Sybo Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Cosmic Cab Review

Being a cab driver has its share of nightmares, but as bad as a city or high population area might be, it pales in comparison to the intergalactic cab circuit. And that's exactly where you make your living in Cosmic Cab. Can you get you passengers where they're going as fast as possible, while supplementing your income along the way by collecting all the precious anti-matter? Whoever designed the roads in Cosmic Cab is definitely certifiable. Multi-lane freeways in a tube break away i…
