Asphalt 4: Elite Racing Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 1 month ago
Asphalt 4: Elite Racing Review

Gameloft have consistently put out a high level of effort into their iPhone applications, but Asphalt 4: Elite Racing takes the cake. With console-like production values and license deals from car manufacturers, it's every bit the game that should appeal to a mainstream gaming crowd and even its flaws will be forgiven when you realize you're playing this game on your iPhone. As you'd expect, the controls have been well designed for this arcade-style racer, giving you the option of tap…

Review inXile Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 1 month ago
Fantastic Contraption Review

Physics based games tend to make use of its physics in a fairly limited way, with puzzle elements that respond to movement and so on, but ultimately they're artificially limited so there's a finite amount of solutions. Fantastic Contraption does everything to defy this practice and challenges you to not merely complete levels, but to engineer utterly unique solutions to its problems. Your aim is to move a piece from one area in to a scoring zone by any means necessary using the tools…

Wolfenstein RPG Review

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

Wolfenstein RPG is a title that seems pretty self explanatory. The game is based on the well known first person shooter series Wolfenstein but employs the use of RPG elements, such as turn based combat and earning experience points. And before you cringe at the sound of the mix of genres, they actually work quite well together. The majority of the game functions the same as a regular FPS game, moving using the D-pad and collecting items by tapping on the screen. But the combat is turn…

DOOM Resurrection Review

Review id Software By Dave Flodine, 5 years, 2 months ago
DOOM Resurrection Review

First Person Shooters have had a bit of a shaky start on the iPhone. It seems no one can create a control scheme that suits the fast, frenetic action of the genre. Doom Resurrection has figured out one solution to the problem, have the game move your character for you, meaning that all the player has to worry about is destroying whatever is in their path. You are a marine, in a research base on Mars. An experiment has gone wrong and suddenly the complex is overrun by zombies and demon…
