Adventures of Poco Eco - Lost Sounds iPad Review

Review POSSIBLE GAMES Kft. By Harry Slater, 10 hours, 36 minutes ago
Adventures of Poco Eco - Lost Sounds iPad Review

Poco Eco is one of those games that's not really that much of a game. It's stunning and chirpy, and features a mesmerising soundtrack. But is that enough to really recommend it? Harry from Pocket Gamer thinks so, and James agrees, mainly because he's reading Harry's review.…

Stormblades iPad Review

Review Kiloo By Harry Slater, 15 hours, 36 minutes ago
Stormblades iPad Review

Stormblades takes the Infinity Blade template, shakes it up a bit, adds some sort of auto-running sections, and wraps everything up in a free to play model. But is that enough? In this video James uses his voice to tell you that Harry from Pocket Gamer thinks it just about is.…

AG Drive iPad Review

Review ZORG By Harry Slater, 4 weeks, 1 day ago
AG Drive iPad Review

AG Drive is the latest in a long line of swooshy swoopy futuristic racers to hit the App Store, but can it succeed where so many others have failed. Yes, says Harry from Pocket Gamer. Yes it can.…

GAROU: MARK OF THE WOLVES iPad Review

Review SNK PLAYMORE By Harry Slater, 1 month ago
GAROU: MARK OF THE WOLVES iPad Review

Can a classic 2D pugilism sim really work on a touchscreen device? Can you pull off a dragon punch input when there's nothing telling your finger when to stop? Is it really possible to punch a 2D sprite so hard its head falls off? Harry from Pocket Gamer strives to answer these questions and more in this video review of legendary SNK brawler Garou: Mark of the Wolves.…

Tempo™ iPad Review

Review WARCHEST LIMITED By Harry Slater, 1 month, 1 week ago
Tempo™ iPad Review

Tempo is a shooter with a twist. The twist is that it's not really a shooter. I mean, shooting happens. There's definitely shooting involved, but rather than pulling the trigger you're tapping along to various quick time events in order to get rid of the bad guys. Does it actually work? Yes, yes it does, and in the video above Pocket Gamer's Harry Slater will explain why.…

Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect iPad Review

Review Orpheus Interactive Inc. By Harry Slater, 1 month, 3 weeks ago
Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect iPad Review

The Sons of Anarchy TV show might have come to a miserable end, but Orpheus Interactive has released Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect, a grim and gritty adventure game set in the same universe. There are bikes, there are swear words, and there are cringe-worthy speeches about honour and loyalty. But is it actually any cop? Pocket Gamer's Harry Slater reckons not. Have a gander at the video above to find out why.…

Helix iPad Review

Review Michael Brough By James Gilmour, 4 months, 1 week ago
Helix iPad Review

Helix is a game about twists and turns. I don't mean it has a surprise M. Night Shyamalan ending or a section where you relive your failed driving test a third, excruciating time. No - in Helix, you are literally spinning your avatar around enemies to eliminate them from the screen. Take a look at our video review to find out whether this simple mechanic won us over.…

Skylanders Trap Team™ iPad Review

Skylanders Trap Team™ iPad Review

Rather than try to make a spin-off, or a severely compromised portable version, Activision has made Skylanders Trap Team a full console quality experience. It's a sight to behold, and even though it practically requires the Portal be used with it at all times, it's a small price to pay. Watch the video above to hear the full review. Read the review transcript over on Pocket Gamer.…

OTTTD iPad Review

Review SMG Studio By Alex Beech, 10 months ago
OTTTD iPad Review

OTTTD (or 'Over The Top Tower Defence') does a pretty good job of living up to its title. Every stage, you are swarmed by bizarre cartoon aliens, and must erect towers to fight them back. Each vanquished foe leaves behind a bloodied corpse, meaning that, within minutes, your base in drenched in an ocean of gore. While the action is frantic, the classic tower defence gameplay is easily mastered thanks to its straightforward controls. Tapping on any construction point brings up a radial…

The Room Two iPad Review

Review Fireproof Games By James Gilmour, 1 year, 3 months ago
The Room Two iPad Review

There were few games released last year so perfectly tailored to touchscreen as The Room. Like the mysterious wooden box at the heart of the experience, the game was beautiful, intricate, tactile, and full of secrets. With The Room Two, Fireproof Games has opened the door, both literally and metaphorically, to another dimension of gameplay. Instead of making you focus your sleuthing skills on a single puzzle box, The Room Two has you flitting between numerous contraptions at once. And…

Hazel Dazzle iPad Review

Review Wake Studios By James Gilmour, 1 year, 5 months ago
Hazel Dazzle iPad Review

Hazel is a budding archaeologist who is trying to stop an evil doctor from using the ruins of an ancient race for his own nefarious purposes. The game she inhabits, Hazel Dazzle, is an action adventure that borrows from the spinning, spherical levels of Super Mario Galaxy, and combines them with more traditional dungeon-crawling sections. Unfortunately, though this marriage of gameplay styles can work, Hazel Dazzle is a shallow experience which is afflicted by some irritating tech…

Riptide GP2 iPad Review

Review Vector Unit By James Gilmour, 1 year, 8 months ago
Riptide GP2 iPad Review

Riptide GP2 makes you work for your win. And when we say work, we don't just mean learning track layouts and honing your jetski riding skills. You see, this water-based racer throws you in at the deep end, presenting you with challenges that are initially beyond the capabilities of your jetski. If you want to get first place, you're going to need to upgrade your vehicle. And, if you want to get the cash to upgrade your vehicle, you're going to have to get your grind on. It's lucky, th…

Agricola iPad Review

Review Playdek, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 9 months ago
Agricola iPad Review

Some board games have an extraordinary number of pieces, making the simple act of setting up a monumental task in itself. Now aficionados will tell you that's part of the allure, but especially with a game like Agricola, the benefit of being able to starta game in a couple of taps cannot be understated. Agricola is a turn based strategy game based around medeavil farming. Now stop right there. Before you cease reading or close the video window, hear us out. While the game may seem ove…

Sid Meier's Ace Patrol iPad Review

Review 2K By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 9 months ago
Sid Meier's Ace Patrol iPad Review

Sid Meier's Ace Patrol is the latest experiment from the acclaimed creator of the Civilization franchise. It's a game that echoes of the combat changes made to the series in Civilization V. Thrown into World War I, you take to the skies as a flying ace. It's up to you to master your aircraft: changing altitude, rolling, banking, and blasting your enemies until they burst into flames. However, these dogfights play out not in real time, but as a turn based experience on a hexagonal grid.…
