Unpossible Review

Review Acceleroto By Alex Beech, 9 hours, 16 minutes ago
Unpossible Review

With the endless genre ever expanding, Unpossible feels like a natural next step. Its fast paced twitch 3D gameplay attaches you to a tube floating in space and proceeds to fling you forward along its twisting length. At times, it feels like a first-person Super Hexagon, forcing you to rotate around a circular core to dodge past various neon blue obstacles. Fighting for good positioning around the tube’s circumference is vital as you shot along Unpossible’s courses, as the…

Monument Valley Review

Review ustwo™ By Alex Beech, 1 day, 6 hours 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, 6 days, 10 hours 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, 6 days, 14 hours 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…

RollerCoaster Tycoon® 4 Mobile™ Review

Review Atari By Alex Beech, 1 week ago
RollerCoaster Tycoon® 4 Mobile™ Review

Initital impressions of Rollercoaster Tycoon 4 are decent. As with previous entries in the PC series, you must build up your theme park in order to attract customers and their money. Any cash you make can then be poured back into your park, creating an endless but satisfying cycle of development and expansion. Constructing your park is simple. You select the desired building from a list, and then drag it into place using the touchscreen controls. Every building, be it a merry-go-…

Robots Love Ice Cream™ Review

Review Ayopa Games LLC By Alex Beech, 1 week, 2 days ago
Robots Love Ice Cream™ Review

Any dimension where ice cream can be used to save humanity is okay by us. Robots Love Ice Cream inhabits just such a dimension. With robots trying to steal vital dessert supplies, you must cruise the galaxy in your weaponized ice-cream truck, blasting mechanical agressors out of the sky. Each invading robot looks like it has been taken straight out of a toy box. Their distinct appearances make each one easily identifiable, even during hectic moments. This ensures that you can ins…

Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff Review

Review TinyCo, Inc. By Alex Beech, 1 week, 5 days ago
Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff Review

Our feelings towards Family Guy as a show oscillate wildly. While at times its offensive jokes can seem cruel and almost bigoted, when they hit their stride the writers and performers can deliver big laughs. What Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff manages to do is strip away any uncertainty, handing you a package containing the show's worst aspects in a box that looks remarkable similar to the one which houses The Simpsons: Tapped Out. The  game is predicated on rebuilding the…

Word Monsters Review

Review Rovio Stars Ltd. By Alex Beech, 1 week, 6 days ago
Word Monsters Review

Rovio's latest addition publishing adventure is the fiendishly tricky word game Word Monsters. Developed by Raketspel, this free-to-play puzzler blends wordsearch gameplay with gravity manipulation, creating a game that demands fast thinking and forward planning. You have to find all of the words in each of Word Monster's tile puzzles. Each round has a theme - one may have you searching for animals, while another will be spent locating girls' names. This does make things tricky at fir…

Trials Frontier Review

Review Ubisoft By Alex Beech, 1 week, 6 days ago
Trials Frontier Review

Trials Frontier wastes no time getting you into the action. There’s no title screen as you load the app - instead, the game begins with an onscreen prompt showing you how to start your engine. Before we'd even seen the title card, we were scudding along the 2.5D path towards an explosive finale. The game's first three tracks lay out all the controls. Your right thumb controls acceleration, while your left thumb manipulates your rider’s center of gravity, letting you j…

Star Wars: Assault Team Review

Review LucasArts By Alex Beech, 2 weeks, 1 day ago
Star Wars: Assault Team Review

We don't mind admitting that we were excited as we started playing the free-to-play Star Wars: Team Assault. It wasn't the Star Wars fanfare that set our nostalgia glands tingling. That lost its potency long ago. Nope, it was the scenario that got our sabres flaring. Starting just after the original film, you take control of Han Solo as he attempts to infiltrate the Empire. With Han, Chewie, and R2-D2 in your squad, you'd be forgive for thinking the story might evolve into something s…

Fairway Solitaire Blast Review

Review Big Fish Games, Inc By Alex Beech, 2 weeks, 2 days ago
Fairway Solitaire Blast Review

The original Fairway Solitaire's blend of golf and cards was superb. Its simple take on solitaire was fun and immediate, while the golf elements encouraged you to minimise moves to come in under par. Fairway Solitaire Blast retains the original's slick solitaire gameplay. Once again, your enjoyment of this will be dependent on your appreciation of solitaire. However, Blast’s streamlined gameplay kept us entertained as we attempted to clear each board as efficiently as possi…

Warhammer 40,000: Storm of Vengeance Review

Review Eutechnyx Limited By Alex Beech, 2 weeks, 5 days ago
Warhammer 40,000: Storm of Vengeance Review

You don't have to have grown up with Warhammer 40K to understand Storm of Vengeance. The factions are so archetypal that very little backstory is needed to get you up to speed. You can to take control of the Ork Waaagh! armies or the Dark Angels. The tower defence combat takes place across five lanes. At the end of each lane you must build structures to aid you in battle, ranging from mundane resource generators, to troop spawning drop pods and psychic Weird-Boy towers. Deployin…

Loco Motors Review

Review Minority Media Inc. By Alex Beech, 2 weeks, 5 days ago
Loco Motors Review

Loco Motors is a car-construction puzzle game that fully embraces the wackiness of its own premise. The aim is to build cars to complete races and challenges, with the game putting very few limits one what you can construct. This proves as much as a curse as it is a blessin,g as, while you struggle with the game’s various physics based puzzles, you constantly feel like you might be missing a more elegant solution. Each map has six challenges, and successfully solving each of the…

Before long the little machine finds itself falling in love with a missile, and trying to save the planet from the invading forces of M.O.T.H.E.R.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier - The Official Game Review

Review Gameloft By Alex Beech, 3 weeks, 1 day ago
Captain America: The Winter Soldier - The Official Game Review

We are willing to bet that Captain America: The Winter Soldier - The Official Game is not a direct translation of the source movie's plot. This is because so many of Cap’s iconic nemeses that appear in this game that, were the movie to follow the story, you would need to bring a sleeping bag into the cinema along with your popcorn The Super Soldier is now operating as a member of S.H.I.E.L.D. under orders from Nick Fury. You must guide him and a small two man strike force into a…
