Stand O’Food® (Full) Review

Review G5 Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 2 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…

Tower Bloxx Deluxe 3D Review

Review RockYou, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 5 years, 2 months ago
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…

Tap Tap Coldplay 1.1 - 13 Tracks Review

Review Tapulous, Inc. By Damian Chiappara, 5 years, 2 months ago
Tap Tap Coldplay 1.1 - 13 Tracks Review

Tap Tap Revenge – Coldplay is a title that’s pretty much self explanatory; the music and rhythm gameplay of Tap Tap revenge mixed with a soundtrack of Coldplay songs. The gameplay has players tapping the buttons to the beat of the song in order to get the highest score possible. Like all music rhythm games, players tap the different buttons when the corresponding note drops from the top of the screen. Players must also shake the iPhone in different directions when arrows d…

Based on the simple and popular game design of Flight Control, Harbour Master is taking the formula and adding a couple new ideas to the gameplay.

Bloons Review

Review Ninja Kiwi By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 2 months ago
Bloons Review

If you asked a monkey to throw a limited amount of sharp darts at a bunch of tethered balloons and scored him based on how many he managed to pop, you'd probably look a little mad. But if you buy Bloons by Digital Goldfish you can live out that dream in all of its puzzle based glory; or if it's not your dream, you can at least enjoy the plethora of clever puzzles within. The control is simple, with players draging their finger to set the power and angle of their shots. Annoyingly, the…
