PGA Golo Golf Dice Review

PGA Golo Golf Dice Review

PGA Golo Golf Dice is the iPhone's portal to PGA.com's online version of the table-top dice game of the same name. For a game that relies on something as simple as rolling dice it's a remarkably complex game of luck and strategy. There's little to the controls with the dice being shaken each round or rolled out at the touch of a button. The interface serves more as a method of tracking your progress, so there's little room for complexity here. Despite only being a game played with di…

Lifeboat Review

Lifeboat Review

If someone asked you to balance a dinner plate on your hand; then placed a bunch of marbles that have their own individual take on the concept of gravity on the plate; then they asked you to kindly manage to balance the plate in just the right way to cause them to fall in to pockets on the side of the plate; you'd have a fair idea of what to expect with Lifeboat by Fuel Games. As the captain of the boat it's your duty to roll the ship's deck around to assist your oddly rotund set of p…

Chewie Chu Review

Review Ludigames By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years ago
Chewie Chu Review

Chewie Chu, published by Ludigames, is a well presented and interesting action puzzle platformer that challenges players with timed levels and physics based solutions - but there's no escaping the fact that it is also a very frustrating game to play. Your aim is to unlock the exit by moving your worm via slingshot from wherever he's currently anchored into switches, edible bugs etc. A lot of time and patience needs to be given to learning the controls (despite being fairly easy to pic…

Skabooki Review

Skabooki Review

Skabooki is a quirky puzzle game where you must safely guide Skabooki, a voodoo doll, through the various levels by removing blocks from under him. Players will need to make sure he drops in the right places and in order to not only escape but rack up as many points as possible. You remove sets of three or more blocks by tapping on them but you will have to be careful about which blocks you remove. Because Skabooki cannot move, it is quite easy to run out of moves or get stuck. There…

Minigore Review

Minigore Review

Minigore is a very well polished twin stick shooter for the iPhone. You play as John Gore who is trapped in a forest. From out of the bushes appear hostile little black furry critters, and it's your job to fend them off for as long as you can. At the bottom of the screen are two sticks. The left stick moves John around while the right fires his gun in any direction you point it. The controls aren't as accurate as they probably should be but they do their job. As you mow down the critt…

Wild Wild Train Review

Wild Wild Train Review

Model train hobbyists would understand that there's a certain poetry to getting their trains to run on time. In particular, getting all of the trains on their stretch of track to smoothly and without delay manage complex paths without creating collisions is sometimes frighteningly hard. This is where Wild Wild Train by Promo Ideas steps in and creates a puzzle game that by its very nature will always be harder than it looks. Managing your trains involves several steps; Firstly you can…

Ric Rococo: International Art Thief Review

Ric Rococo: International Art Thief Review

Ric Rococo: International Art Thief isn't just a fun stealth, puzzle platformer, it's stylish; and why shouldn't it when it features some of the world's greatest artwork. This is developer Honeyslug's first entry on to the iPhone and it's a steal on the app store. Your objective is to claim as much of the artwork as possible by passing it to your sexy partner in crime through windows in a limited space of time. The controls have been minimized, with the major controls requiring you to…

Townrs Defender Review

Townrs Defender Review

Townrs Defender is a bit of a unique butterfly at the moment for the iPhone as it's the first to bring the often forgotten "third" variety of the defense genre, the hero defense. While other companies duke it out to claim the top spots in castle and tower defense, Prophetic Sky has set the standard for future hero defense games. Movement around the screen is made with taps, but a lack of pathing logic means you'll be tapping a lot to move accurately. Attacking comes in four major vari…

Play Marbles Review

Play Marbles Review

Play Marbles is a version of the classic kids game marbles for the iPhone. The aim of marbles is to knock as many marbles as you can out of the game circle in order to beat your opponent. You control your shots by tilting the iPhone to move the marble around the circle, using the two buttons on screen to change camera and adjust your direction and flicking the marble to shoot. The controls are simple but they don’t seem all that polished and it can be difficult to line up shots…

Virtual Horse Racing 3D Review

Virtual Horse Racing 3D Review

Virtual Horse Racing 3D by Natenai Ariyatrakool is a niche title that puts you in the place of a punter on the race track, making bets and watching a race in real time. This game is a simple time-waster affair, with players placing bets between racers in various amounts. Regular punters will find this to be a fairly simple but informative interface, but there's little complication to the touch elements used. One of the main features of the game is the real time races that occur after…

Space Invaders Infinity Gene Review

Space Invaders Infinity Gene Review

You'd be forgiven for thinking that this game was just another attempt to return to a classic game and just give it a new twist, because you'd be wrong. Space Invaders Infinity Gene by Taito isn't just a rehash of an old game, it's a new game all in itself. Taito may have arguably started the popular trend for shoot-em-ups and Infinity Gene is almost like watching the genre come full circle. Instead of opting for tilt-controls to free the screen entirely, Infinity Gene allows a player…

Resident Evil 4: PLATINUM Review

Review CAPCOM By Luke Bartley, 5 years ago
Resident Evil 4: PLATINUM Review

The Resident Evil series has respected history in video games, and now the fourth iteration has made its way to the iPhone. This port has tried to stay faithful to the looks and gameplay of its console counterpart, and mostly it is successful. Playing the part of Leon Kennedy, you have been asked to investigate the kidnapping of the President's daughter, however there is a lot more at play than it would seem. The controls have been condensed to be fit on the iPhone's screen. Movement…

Review Occamy Games By Dave Flodine, 5 years ago
Moto X Mayhem Review

Moto X Mayhem is a survival racing game where you have to guide your motorbike across a hazardous landscape, reaching the finish line in the quickest time possible. The challenge comes in that even the slightest shift in weight when riding, flying through the air, or landing can result in a deadly spill. The motorbike is controlled via the touch screen and tilting. The right side of the screen can be pressed for acceleration, the left for brake. Shifting your weight is done by tilting…
