Daisy Mae's Alien Buffet Review

Daisy Mae's Alien Buffet Review

Twin stick shooters are becoming a popular genre in the appstore, but it takes something special to stand out from the crowd. IUGO have thrown out Daisy Mae's Alien Buffet onto the iphone, which is a solid entry into the genre with a grindhouse feel, fun weapons, and rapidly increating difficulty. The standard twin stick controls are only the default for Daisy Mae. Two other controls schemes are available, one replacing the shooting stick with a button, and for those looking for an ea…

Tehra Dark Warrior Review

Review StormBASIC Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Tehra Dark Warrior Review

The action adventure hack and slash has been tried many times already for the touch device and has been received with mixed results. While some echo the gameplay of games from home consoles, others have tried their own route to succeeding on a mobile platform. Tehra Dark Warrior by Stormbasic is a sometimes surprising, but ultimately average hack and slasher that doesn't quite manage to excite. Tehra uses a virtual analogue stick with buttons for the attack, block and magic controls.…

Star*Burst Review

Star*Burst Review

Star*Burst is a new match-three game from the excessively named developer Super Happy Fun Fun. This is truly a unique take on the genre combining time-management games with gem matching for some frantic and sometimes frustrating fun. Gems are passed down a multi-row conveyor belt that need to be caught with your paddle and then tossed up one at a time to form matching groups. Bonuses are awarded for more complex patterns and gems can be tossed back onto the conveyor belt if needed. Pe…

Durak Review

Review Lost Token Software LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Durak Review

Card games are often hard to represent accurately in video games. Sure, the rules are easy enough to replicate, but it's so hard to replace the feel of playing a game with real cards and real people. Durak by Lost Token does a great job of making a virtual card game feel realistic and even gives you the ability to play with real opponents. For those that aren't aware of the game, Durak is a card shedding style of play that uses trick-taking rules to establish who wins or loses a round…

Review Brisk Mobile Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Battle for Cydonia Review

2360: Battle for Cydonia by Brisk Mobile is the one of the latest mech shooters available for the App Store. With gameplay that combines real time strategy and action rpgs it's a frantically paced game, though this may not be as exciting as it sounds. With a top down RTS-inspired view point and interface, your mech uses a simple set of commands to lock on and eliminate enemies. The controls are intuitive and perfect for touch devices, which is a god-send for dealing with the hordes of…

Trundle Review

Review mobile bros., LLC By Kym Holmes, 4 years, 9 months ago
Trundle Review

Trundle is a puzzle based game whereby you roll and jump a blue glowing ball through obstacles to continue to the next screen. Similar in essence to games like Rolando, Trundle has a unique visual quality and addictiveness that makes it stand out. The controls are simple enough in that you tilt the screen to roll the ball and tap the screen to jump. Working out the best timing for jumps to use the appropriate inertia can take time, but it all adds to the challenge of the game. There i…

Riddim Ribbon feat. The Black Eyed Peas Review

Review Tapulous, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 9 months ago
Riddim Ribbon feat. The Black Eyed Peas Review

Tapulous has made some of the better music and rhythm games on the iphone with their well recieved 'Tap Tap Revenge' series. Now they're trying a new take on the rhythm genre with Riddim Ribbon. Similar in look to the indie PC game Audiosurf, players ride a wave of the music chosen, but sadly that's where the similarities end. Players tilt their iphone to move left and right along the track. The aim of the game is to keep on the small road that moves in time to the beat. Along the roa…

Military Madness: Neo Nectaris Review

Review KONAMI By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 9 months ago
Military Madness: Neo Nectaris Review

For those of you who can't get enough of turn based strategy games, one of the originals has been ressurected for the iphone. Military Madness was first released in 1989 and its sequel has been given a facelift. The story is a basic affair of axis vs allies, but with a futuristic vibe. Control is all touch based. To move a unit, you tap on it, tap where on the grid you want it to go, and then tap again to confirm the move. Attacking is similar as you double tap the enemy you wish to a…

Eveningstar Review

Review Divine Robot Ltd By Kym Holmes, 4 years, 9 months ago
Eveningstar Review

Eveningstar is a forward scrolling shoot em up with a slightly different focus on the way you destroy enemies. The goal, as with most shoot em ups, is to fly to the end of the level killing enemies along the way to eventually take down the boss. The difference that Eveningstar uses to separate it from any other space shoot em ups is that you have an energy ball floating around the ship that acts as your primary weapon. To control the ship, you simply move your finger around the screen…

Glow Hockey 2 Review

Review Natenai Ariyatrakool By Kym Holmes, 4 years, 9 months ago
Glow Hockey 2 Review

If you were to blend Air Hockey with the neon glow of Las Vegas, the resulting smoothie would come out looking somewhat like Glow Hockey. Glow Hockey is a simple Air Hockey game for the iPhone that replaces the table, puck and sticks with neon glowing counterparts. As per other Air Hockey games, you control your stick with your finger and simply drag it to hit the puck when it enters your side of the table. There's nothing outlandish or different, but the controls are simple and respo…

Warheads Review

Review Pangea Software, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Warheads Review

One of the great things about the App Store is seeing how classic arcade games are revived and reinterpreted for a new audience.  Warheads is the latest release from Pangea Software and attempts to update the seminal arcade game Missile Command. Jumping into the game couldn't be easier and requires a quick tap and a quick wit to survive each successive wave sent to wipe you out. The basic screen layout is the same as the original, with three missile lanchers set amongst objects y…

Nanosaur 2 Review

Review Pangea Software, Inc. By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 9 months ago
Nanosaur 2 Review

Time travel is always a tricky issue. There are enough loop holes and technicalities that will disprove just about every single theory. But in Nanosaur 2, when gun wielding dinosaurs from the future are thrown into the mix, it’s safe to say that accuracy isn’t a key part of the game. Players control the Nanosaur and must travel back in time to retrieve a number of stolen dinosaur eggs and safely return them to the future. Movement is controlled by tilting the iPhone and we…
