Defender Chronicles - Legend of The Desert King Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 8 months ago
Defender Chronicles - Legend of The Desert King Review

Just when you thought all Tower Defence games were the same, along comes Defender Chronicles to smack you upside the head with a dead goblin. Yes, the core gameplay is the same but certain changes have been made to break the repetitive nature of most TD games. Instead of placing towers ‘willy nilly’ on the map, players must co-ordinate towers along the specific build zones to make the most effective army possible. The upgrade and placement system is very straightforward as…

Bix Review

Review Padadaz By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Bix Review

Bix by Padadaz is a great new arcade game that fuses the classic gameplay from Taito's Qix with more modern gameplay adaptions from Jezzball and KBounce. For those who don't know these iconic games, Bix is an arcade game that has you racing to claim screen's space without being hit by balls bouncing around the increasingly smaller play area. Your "tracer" is controlled by simple directional swipes to indicate which direction it should draw a line and subsequently create a box. Lives a…

Review Luke Campbell By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 8 months ago

Twilight Golf Review

Review Andrew Korth By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Twilight Golf Review

Sometimes a developer can get so caught up in showing off new and exciting features that they forget to make a game out of it that's genuinely interesting and not just a demo of "cool stuff". Howling Moon Software almost trips over that line in Twilight Golf, however it's a serene experience to enjoy from start to finish. Twilight Golf is, as the name suggests, a golf-like game where stroke angle and power are determined by dragging away from the ball and at an angle. This is easy to…

Tilteroids Review

Review JackCraft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Tilteroids Review

You'd be forgiven for thinking that Tilteroids by JackCraft isn't the most original name for a game that involves TILTing the iPhone to shoot asteROIDS, but when a game does both of these things so well it's hard to call it anything else. As you'd expect tilting performs the main duty of controlling your craft around the screen maneuvering your ship and at the same time aiming your weapon. Tilting to the sides smoothly rotates your shots left and right while moving side-to-side; tilti…

BloodyXmas Review

Review MADFINGER Games, a.s. By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 9 months ago
BloodyXmas Review

Either way, Bloody Xmas puts players in control of a badass reinvention of Santa as he must defend his workshop from thieving little creatures. So it’s up to you to dismember and cleave your way through the incoming waves of enemies so they don’t steal all of your presents. Santa is controlled by tapping and holding on the scr…
