Super Mole Escape Review

Review [adult swim] By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Super Mole Escape Review

One would think that if you were building a prison to house Moles, you would make certain that the floor was reinforced. Due to this oversight, we have Super Mole Escape, in which you take control of an incarcerated mole fleeing towards freedom, staying one step ahead of Johnny Law, and even worse, streams of molten lava. Along the way you collect gems (obviously to start your new life on the outside) and these ill gotten gains are used to upgrade your mole of choice (each with their o…

Granny Smith Review

Review Mediocre AB By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Granny Smith Review

Mediocre have a grip on physics. That's a lame pun, and I may be scientifically inaccurate there too, but the sentiment is definitely true. Sprinkle was an amazingly cute and complex title that made use of some of the best fluid physics seen on the App Store and the team is back with Granny Smith. Instead of putting out fires you're chasing down thieves on roller-skates and crashing through the countryside and cityscape in an attempt to recover your delicious fruit. Like any great iOS…

Mad Skills BMX Review

Review Turborilla By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Mad Skills BMX Review

One of the biggest hurdle to overcome when trying to create a competitive title such as Mad Skills BMX is in being able to make it approachable for casual players while still catering to the hardcore crowd. Turborilla's solution was an elegant one - focus on the flow of the controls and the feel of smoothly sailing through the air to nail that perfect landing, and newcomers or veterans alike will be hooked. Virtual controls are history in Mad Skill BMX and players can choose to either…

Astronaut Spacewalk Review

Review Jorge Hernandez By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Astronaut Spacewalk Review

While fascination with space has waned in the popular consciousness for a while, who can say they've never fantasized about being an astronaut? Being able to either jump around on the moon, or simply to spacewalk amongst the stars, with our big blue planet orbiting within your vision. Astronaut Spacewalk fulfills this fantasy by immersing you visually and aurally in the suit of an astronaut as you use your propulsion system to move along satellites and space stations. It's an im…

Offroad Legends Review

Review Dogbyte Games Kft. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Offroad Legends Review

Upon loading up Offroad Legends, we were expecting a Trials type experience, and this looked like the same insane jump and bump gameplay, only with monster trucks instead of motor bikes. Well it's not really like that at all, but forging its own path, this racer definitely has some unique things to offer, such as jumping lava in a hippie kombi van. One of the first things to get used to is that going full bolt will have disastrous effects. Your truck has a damage percentage meter, and…

Asphalt 7: Heat Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Asphalt 7: Heat Review

It seems to be taking many small incremental changes, but the Asphalt series by Gameloft is slowly approaching something akin to the coin-swallowing racers that still dominate modern arcades. Gorgeous in its presentation, utterly unrealistic in its racing, but still challenging thanks to fierce AI opponents, Asphalt 7: Heat keeps things simple, but nails the mindless fun inherent in the genre. Each of the 15 eye-popping stages feature a range of hidden, and not so hidden short-cuts th…

Rock(s) Rider Review

Review ECA-Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Rock(s) Rider Review

From time-trial racers to skill-based Trials HD-esque games, the App Store has surprisingly seen it all and in a number of guises. Rock(s) Rider by ECA-Games attempts to consolidate it all in to one title and the end result is a mixed one that doesn't live up to the same expectations of the inspirational games it wears its sleeves. This is no more evident than in the game's artistic presentation, mixing stylish and slick menus, and gorgeous industrial environments with signs that make…

Wingsuit Stickman Review

Review Djinnworks GmbH By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 months ago
Wingsuit Stickman Review

What is so inherently entertaining about ragdoll stickmen? Whether it be in choreographed martial arts animations or the plethora of iPhone games involving them, watching these abstract representations of ourselves flail around unceremoniously is always worth a chuckle. In Wingsuit Stickman, our lined protagonist takes flight, and it's up to the player to guide them around oh so many dangerous obstacles, to plummet right into the finish bag. Control of the stickman is handled via tilt…

Slingshot Racing Review

Review Crescent Moon Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 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 MindJolt By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 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

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
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

Review Foursaken Media By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 8 months ago
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, 9 months 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, 9 months 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, 10 months 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…
