Dracula: The Path Of The Dragon – Part 1 Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 5 years, 4 months ago
Dracula: The Path Of The Dragon – Part 1 Review

Point and click adventure games are making a resurgence on the iphone. In this vein, Chillingo have ported over from the PC part one of a three part adventure titled Dracula: The Path of the Dragon. Redesigned for iphone use, you play as Father Arno Moriani, who is sent to the town of Vladoviste, Transylvania to investigate a potential candidate for sainthood. What you find there is not exactly expected. The control is one of the highlights of this game. Like Realmyst, you have a 360…

Golden Vault Slots Review

Review 616 Digital LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 4 months ago
Golden Vault Slots Review

Golden Vault Slots is yet another addition to Pokie Magic's collection of slot-machine games available for the App Store. But does the energetic opening music and images of golden vaults promise more than it can give? Like all Pokie Magic games the slot machine is driven by touch controls and sports an automatic play button if you're feeling a bit lazy. The special feature mode of the game requires a nimble hand and mind as you attempt to align locks to open the activated bonus vault.…

Cliffed XL Review

Cliffed is a twitch gaming, race to the bottom style game in which you must simply manoeuvre your character around ledges and rocks faster than the screen moves to catch you. Whatever you do, don't blink, unless you want to get Cliffed. The controls in Cliffed are very easy to use with the 2 sides of the screen set apart for you to control your character's movement left and right with your thumbs. By double tapping the area, you perform a quick dash which can give you that valuable ti…

Review MonkeyWantBanana By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 4 months ago
Shopping Cart Hero Review

Fresh from its popular digs on the internet, Shopping Cart Hero (SCH) is based off Monkey Want Banana's second Flash-based game. With groupies in tow and a sombrero firmly wedged on your scalp SCH is a catapult style game with a twist. On top of the basic upgrading to launch faster, higher and further, SCH quickly adds a trick-based scoring system that really defines the gameplay.

Review Electronic Arts By Kym Holmes, 5 years, 4 months ago
YAHTZEE™ Adventures Review

If you are or were a fan of Hasbro's scoring die game Yahtzee, then EA's iPhone port of Yahtzee Adventures offers a great new way to play an old favourite. The main adventure mode has you playing against various NPCs around the world to hone your Yahtzee skills and try to beat them all. The controls are well thought out allowing you to shake the iphone to roll the die or simply click the cup to roll them. You then click the die you wish to hold after each roll until you choose your be…

HEAVY GUNNER 3D Review

Review Com2uS USA, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 5 years, 4 months ago
HEAVY GUNNER 3D Review

Earth is under attack! It's up to your defensive skills behind the mounted gun to stop the alien invasion from taking over. Heavy Gunner 3d is a defense shooter where you must mow down waves upon waves of incoming enemies with a vast selection of upgradable weapons. The controls are a little complex, but they work well. Tilting your iphone moves the camera around your 360 degree viewport. Using two fingers (one from each hand) you control the two guns. Initially it is confusing lookin…

Robot Rampage Review

Review Origin8 By Dave Flodine, 5 years, 4 months ago
Robot Rampage Review

Rampage was a lot of fun. Choosing a giant lizard, gorilla, or wolfman and destroying cities for no reason kept gamers playing for a very long time. The basic idea has now been revitalized for the iphone, and instead of a giant animal, you're a giant robot! Yes the point of the game is to see how many city blocks you can destroy before the army ends your reign of carnage. You have a few attacks in your arsenal. Tapping and holding on screen fires your eye laser which will be your main…

B-Boy Beats Review

Review Tag Games Limited By Dave Flodine, 5 years, 4 months ago
B-Boy Beats Review

It's always nice to see new attempts at innovative gameplay within the rhythm genre. B-Boy Beats is a rhythm game where you travel around New York engaging in dance battles with hip hop backing, using your fingers in the place of legs as you cut up the dance mat. Control is very reminiscent of the Ouendan series on the DS. You use your fingers to tap or slide along circles in time with the music, and the better you do, the higher your score and multiplier goes. The controls themselves…

Drift Sumi-e Review

Review Objectify LLC By Dave Flodine, 5 years, 4 months ago
Drift Sumi-e Review

Drawrace was an interesting concept. Draw a line with your finger around the track, and then see how fast your car gets to the finish line. Drift Sumi-e takes this mechanic and combines drifting cars with the elegance of Japanese sumi-e brush painting. Control is quite basic. When presented with the track, you draw a line from start to finish, avoiding the red trouble spots of the track. After you're finished, the game will go into race mode as your car drifts through the turns you la…

Across Age ™ Review

Review FDG Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 4 months ago
Across Age ™ Review

With so many different games in production for the App Store it's easy to see the experimentation that goes on, resulting in new or modified genres. Across Age is a fantasy Action-RPG from FDG Entertainment that's perfect for the platform and adds to the genre in an interesting way. Initially there's nothing too new about the controls of Across Age as it uses the standard virtual analogue stick and button combinations, but the game quickly introduces a character swapping mechanic that…

Arodius - A Dual-Stick Shooter with Plentiful Power-Ups Review

Review Mobile Force By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 4 months ago
Arodius - A Dual-Stick Shooter with Plentiful Power-Ups Review

Sure, you could draw a parallel between the name Arodius and classic arcade shooter Gradius, but you'd be leading yourself astray. Despite some similarities to arcade shooters this latest release from Mobile Force is a great twin-stick shooter that's just begging to be your favorite. There are no strange controls to be had with Arodius as it sticks to the usual left-stick to move and right-stick to fire controls. A special weapon button appears at the bottom of the screen once you've…

Review G5 Entertainment By Dave Flodine, 5 years, 4 months ago
The Mystery of the Crystal Portal (Full) Review

Hidden object games tend to divide people. Some like to search an environment finding treasures while others see them as a waste of time.
