Tetravex Review

Review Futrell Software By Damian Chiappara, 5 years, 4 months ago
Tetravex Review

Tetrevex is a puzzle game where players must place scattered tiles into a big puzzle board. Each piece has four coloured sides, and can only be placed next to pieces with the same coloured side. For example, if a piece has a blue right side, it can only be placed left of a piece with a blue left side. This must be done for all sides and becomes increasingly harder as the board sizes increase. You place your pieces by clicking and dragging them up to a desired square on the board. From…

Civilization Revolution Review

Review 2K By Dave Flodine, 5 years, 4 months ago
Civilization Revolution Review

Sid Meirs' Civilization series is one of the most addictive strategic video games in history. A bold statement, but its tech trees, exploration, and 'one more turn' style of gameplay has kept this reviewer glued to his screen since the early 90s. In this port of the most recent game in the series, we see how this style of gameplay transfers to the iPhone. You start the game by choosing a world leader and beginning your civilization around 3000 BC. As you build your armies, cities, and…

Timeloop Review

Review Connect2Media By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 4 months ago
Timeloop Review

Puzzle games have always tried to remain entertaining by introducing game mechanics that are simple to grasp, but eventually complex to execute. This keeps a game tantalisingly fun to play, while scratching your brain in all the right places. TimeLoop challenges players to think fourth-dimensionally as you use copies of yourself to rescue the professor from each puzzling room. Each room is navigated by your hapless robot called Nik by touching where he needs to go. This would sound ea…

Duke Nukem 3D Review

Review MachineWorks Northwest By Dave Flodine, 5 years, 4 months ago
Duke Nukem 3D Review

Duke Nukem 3D, arguably one of the finest first person shooters ever made. Now a port of the game comes to the iPhone with a unique control scheme to compensate for the lack of a mouse and keyboard. The question though is does it deliver the experience we all remember and love. The game offers two control schemes and both have their problems. The analog setup features two control sticks down the bottom of the screen (one to move, one to shoot), while the digital setup breaks the stick…

Touch Magic Review

Review Clickgamer.com By Beau Burtenshaw, 5 years, 4 months ago
Touch Magic Review

Captilising on the iPhone's strong ability to render 3D environments, ClickGamers's approach to puzzle solving will make you think like no other puzzle game has before. The goal of Touch Magic is to re-assemble a jumbled object by arranging each pixel to re-form it. Each object is arranged on a 3D plane so that from one perspective it looks correct and from another it looks like a pixelated mess. At the start of each round you are shown what the object looks like, for example, a pictu…

Guitar Rock Tour 2 Review

Review Gameloft By Damian Chiappara, 5 years, 4 months ago
Guitar Rock Tour 2 Review

In the tradition of console music/rhythm games, Guitar Rock Tour 2 puts you up on stage playing a number of classic Rock and Roll tracks. With 16 tracks available and the option to play drums, as well as guitar, there's plenty of musical content to keep you rocking on your iPhone. The controls are the usual rhythm game style, where notes fall from the top screen and you hit them in time to the music, but now players tap their fingers on the screen to hit the notes. At times you might…
