Sir Revs-a-Lot Full Review

Review Smallrock Software, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 2 months ago
Sir Revs-a-Lot Full Review

Addictive mini-games should almost be a genre to themselves and Sir Revs-a-Lot by Smallrock Software qualifies. What may have started out as a small and fun little gaming experiment can quickly become a full-fledged bite-sized game that is without a doubt strangely appealing in its minimalism. Your miniature car is controlled on its impossible mystery tour through two possible methods. The default option allows you to touch the edges of the screen to move back and forth and a tilt opt…

Enigmo 2 Review

Review Pangea Software, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 2 months ago
Enigmo 2 Review

Enigmo 2 is Pangea Software's response to their already successful and critically aclaimed physics puzzle game Enigmo. In this offering Pangea has brought better graphics and even 3D world manipulation, but does that make it a better game? The first major hurdle players unfamiliar to Enigmo as a series will need to come to grips with is the set of controls available. Each of the earlier levels attempts to teach the physics and new features of the game, but forgets to let players get c…

Modern Combat: Sandstorm Review

Review Gameloft By Dave Flodine, 5 years, 2 months ago
Modern Combat: Sandstorm Review

Gameloft is at it again! Following the enormous success of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in 2007, They have decided to create their own desert combat FPS for the iPhone. Here's the thing though, unlike almost every other FPS on Apple's handheld device, this one actually controls decently. You play as a returning soldier undergoing an operation in the middle east, and what follows is nothing spectacular, but enough action and variety to get you through the next 10 missions. Unlike other…

Tumiki Fighters Review

Review Dreamawake Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 2 months ago
Tumiki Fighters Review

Kenta Cho is a sort of buzzword name in the shoot'em up world of developers and has been well received for his inspirational and quirky design ideas. Tumiki Fighters on the iPhone is a port of his Katamari inspired shooter and while successful on other platforms it loses its charm here. At the heart of any good shooter is the agility of your fighter and this version of Tumiki Fighers is amazingly hard to control. The fighter is controlled by accelerometer tilting, which can be calibra…

Review Electronic Arts By Damian Chiappara, 5 years, 2 months ago

Alive 4-ever Review

Alive 4-ever Review

You'd be forgiven if you read the title Alive 4-Ever (A4E), saw the App icon and thought, "Did someone port Left 4 Dead (L4D) to the iPhone?". It's hard to fault Meridian for jumping on to a hot game design concept like L4D and while there are many comparisons to be made, A4E is just about as perfect as it gets for action fans on the iPhone. The dual analogue controls are extremely responsive, which will save your behind as zombies quickly crowd around you. Other interactive elements…
