Sonic the Hedgehog Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Sonic the Hedgehog Review

Just about every mobile device has had an incarnation of this popular classic console game and there's no reason that SEGA shouldn't have brought it to the iPhone too. Iconic in its design and gameplay, the iPhone version of Sonic the Hedgehog 1 plays just as flawlessly as the Mega Drive version it's taken from. A digital d-pad is used to run, spin and jump Sonic around each of the levels and the response has to be played to be believed. A major flaw for almost every mobile port has b…

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
SCRABBLE Review

Scrabble is an iconic board game that has been around 1938, popularised in the 50's and is almost globally known in its gameplay. Simplicity reigns supreme in EA's release of Scrabble on the iPhone and you couldn't expect anything less from such a simple, yet challenging game. The letter tiles all use a simple drag and drop system for placement with the rest of the interface being responsive to simple touches. The iPhone has also been well considered by the use of a "Recall" button to…

DrawRace - Turbo Edition Review

Review Ubisoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
DrawRace - Turbo Edition Review

DrawRace by RedLynx is a fun spin on old school arcade racers like R.C. Pro-Am, Mario Kart and even the seminal Rock'N'Roll Racing. You'll find yourself drawing your way to victory against computer (and human) opponents as you strive for the perfect lap. There's not much to the game with almost all the controls given over to your car's AI. Each race begins by literally drawing the path that your car should take from beginning to end through all the laps required. This can be deceptive…

Stand O’Food® (Full) Review

Review G5 Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Stand O’Food®  (Full) Review

Stand O'Food by G5 Entertainment attempts to mesh puzzle gaming with the popular time management genre, but ultimately feels like it comes off as second-rate for each instead of the unique genre it tries to create. It's an unforgiving game in terms of difficulty, but if you're having fun you might just let it slide while you whip up your latest food sensation. The game is driven entirely by touch controls to select ingredients in order, adding sauces or putting your creation in a box…

Sensing opportunity, Sally buys the spa and the rest of the game is a simple management simulation as the spa business grows and grows day by day.

Tower Bloxx Deluxe 3D Review

Tower Bloxx Deluxe 3D Review

Being an architect has never been so easy. In Tower Bloxx Deluxe 3D it's your job to construct high-rise towers as sturdy as you can. The towers are built floor by floor. If you land a floor perfectly, a combo starts, increasing population. This is important in build city mode, where tower placement adds to the game's complexity. Tower building is as easy as touching the screen to drop the next floor as it swings overhead. Different coloured towers hold different populations depending…
