Galcon Labs Review

Galcon Labs Review

Real-time Risk type games have become a bit of a hot design choice of late, but most end up feeling like a rehash of all the others while maybe only bringing one new mechanic to the table. Galcon Labs by galcon.com unashamedly keeps the basic gameplay in tact and instead brings multiple game modes to trump others in the genre. You control your virtual armies through touch controls that are easy to master. You can select or deselect planets you control and then assign them a target to…

Pocket Farm Review

Review Chris Egerter By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 1 month ago
Pocket Farm Review

Pocket Farm by Egerter Software is part strategy, part time management, part arcade puzzle and all around not quite the best effort for a company that has prided itself on several "firsts" for the iPhone. Few of the game aspects hold up on their own and despite the combination of them, the game feels fairly flat. fter selecting your choice of farmer, you can start your new farm simply by selecting an available square and using the all-purpose "action" button to purchase new items, wor…

Backbreaker Football Review

Review NaturalMotion By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 2 months ago
Backbreaker Football Review

Visceral thumps, jukes, spins and show-boating. That's what Backbreaker Football by NaturalMotion is all about. Each tackle you take will make you wince and each triumphant touchdown will have you laughing at your opponents. For a game that takes a single aspect of a national sport like NFL, it manages to be - dare I say it - addictive for everyone to play. Backbreaker has turned running the ball for a touchdown into an arcade sport and the controls couldn't be simpler. Around the low…

Review Richard Wilson By Damian Chiappara, 5 years, 2 months ago
SkySmash 1918 Review

If you're a fan of the old Galaga style vertical shooter, then you'll love SkySmash 1918. What sets this game apart other games of this genre is the era; set in 1918, it encompasses WWI and it's frantic airborne dogfights. You play as an English fighter pilot and must shoot down a myriad of enemy planes, anti-air guns,and other vehicles in an effort to end the war. Players control their planes movement by dragging their finger around the screen to fly and dodge incoming projectiles. S…

FarmLand Review

Review iMouse By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 2 months ago
FarmLand Review

It's hard to stand out amongst the crowd of time management games on the iPhone, so combining popular gameplay with a relatively new setting is a great way to do this. FarmLand by iMouse isn't the best time management game available, but its unique mixture of puzzles make each level interesting to play. Like most standard games in the genre, your main course of action during a level is to click objects to continue the chain of action on screen. Your goal is to take the plots of land o…

Bowman Defense Review

Bowman Defense Review

Bowman Defense by Triniti Interactive is yet another addition to the ranks of the archery-style arcade games littering the iPhone and like so many other successful games it has risen to prominence thanks to the liberal use of "creative license" and a fairly generic style of gameplay. The copy-cat nature of so many games on the iPhone is usually best represented by the lack of experimentation in the controls where the expectation is "if you've learned how to play game X then you'll hav…

Elven Chronicles Review

Review Big Blue Bubble By Damian Chiappara, 5 years, 2 months ago
Elven Chronicles Review

Elven Chronicles follows the tale of a young knight and his magic wielding companion as they seek revenge on those who attacked his caravan and nearly killed him. It’s an old school, turn based RPG similar to old Super Nintendo Final Fantasy games. But unlike the original RPGs of that time, Elven Chronicles is a lot more restrictive. Players control their character by tapping on the iPhone screen to move and when a battle event is triggered use attacks or actions. These battles,…

Wriggle Review

Review Conlan Rios By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 2 months ago
Wriggle Review

They're ugly, they're slimy, they're multi-colored, but the worms in Wriggle by Conlan Rios need to be set free! Wriggle is a slick puzzle game that will challenge your ability to think around corners (literally) while remaining friendly enough for new-comers to stumble their way through. The worms of Wriggle are moved by dragging their heads or tails through the available spaces, hopefully dragging the correct worm to the exit. This is easier said than done as each level is a maze of…
