Godzilla - Smash3 Review

Review Rogue Play, Inc. By Alex Beech, 6 months, 1 week ago
Godzilla - Smash3 Review

We wonder what went through Rogue Play’s collective heads when they got the Godzilla licence. Given the leash of the world's most iconic building-mashing monster, we can’t work out at what point they felt that a match three puzzler would be the best fit. But while Godzilla - Smash3 may not offer the most apt use the king of lizards, it does offer some monstrous elements. Controlling Godzilla, you must battle the military, smash buildings, and defeat other monsters. While y…

Dragon Coins Review

Review SEGA By Alex Beech, 6 months, 1 week ago
Dragon Coins Review

Upon hearing that Dragon Coins was free-to-play game with a Pokemon-style focus on monster collection, we were tempted to run screaming from our phones with our hands clasped tightly around our wallets. After digging a little deeper, however, we discovered a tactical RPG with coin-dozer combat that offers more than enough of its touch-based fun for free. Dragon Coins combat will be instantly familiar if you have ever visited a seaside arcade. A field of coins meets you as you sta…

Table Tennis Touch Review

Review Yakuto By Alex Beech, 6 months, 2 weeks ago
Table Tennis Touch Review

Table Tennis is part of videogaming lore. From helping to popularise gaming with Pong back in 1972, to Rockstar's Table Tennis for the Xbox 360, the tabletop sport has a long and gloried history with gaming. Now, developer Yakuto has brought Table Tennis Touch to iPhone and iPad, a game that delivers one of the most faithful interpretations of the sport we have seen. The controls are simple and intuitive. Swiping upwards towards an approaching ball will return it, while jerking the p…

JoyJoy Review

Review Radiangames By Alex Beech, 6 months, 2 weeks ago
JoyJoy Review

There is nothing new about JoyJoy’s premise. At heart it is a classic twin stick shooter formed from the same mold as Smash TV and Geometry Wars. What developer Radiangames has attemted to bring to this tried and tested formula is an attractive visual style, and versatile weapons system. You must guide your ship around an arena populated by ever increasing waves of enemies. Collecting them from fallen foes, you can hold a total of six ammunition types. These include spread…

dEXTRIS Review

Review Chaotic Box By Alex Beech, 6 months, 2 weeks ago
dEXTRIS Review

Dextris is twitch gaming distilled down to its purest form. Controlling two neon coloured blocks in unison, your simple task is to dodge left and right as you rocket endlessly upwards through its vertically-scrolling course. By default, the pink and blue squares you command sit happily in the middle of the screen. Holding the right side of the screen causes both blocks to shoot rapidly to the right and grind their way up the wall. Hold the left side, and you'll get the opposite result…

SOULCALIBUR Unbreakable Soul Review

Review BANDAI NAMCO Games Inc. By Alex Beech, 6 months, 2 weeks ago
SOULCALIBUR Unbreakable Soul Review

Soulcalibur Unbreakable Soul is an odd instalment in the Soulcalibur franchise. This mobile, free-to-play game abandons the weapons-based arcade combat for which the series is famous, and instead focuses on the stories of its colourful cast to form the foundation for a collectible card game. In Unbreakable Soul’s defence, the CCG elements have been fairly well though out. You have a deck that can hold three fighter cards, each of which is assigned three weapon card. Each ch…

CastleStorm - Free to Siege Review

Review ZEN Studios Ltd. By Alex Beech, 6 months, 2 weeks ago
CastleStorm - Free to Siege Review

Castlestorm: Free to Siege is a smorgasbord of gameplay styles. At its core it is a tower defence game, but it ladels in construction, brawling, and even physics destruction elements in its gameplay stew. You begin each stage facing off against your medieval enemy along a 2D path. Sometimes your goal will be to stop all of the advancing attackers. At other times you'll need bring down the enemy's fortifications using any or all of the plentiful combat systems at your disposal. The fi…

Warhammer 40,000: Carnage Review

Review Roadhouse Games Ltd. By Alex Beech, 6 months, 3 weeks ago
Warhammer 40,000: Carnage Review

Within the 40K universe, Space Marines are walking tanks. If you are being invaded by hundreds of Orks, all you need is one of the Emperor’s finest to hold back the storm. This is exactly the feeling Warhammer 40,000: Carnage attempts to deliver. Rather than commanding a squad. you take control of a single Ultramarine ploughing through waves of Orks. Armed with only a bolt pistol and a combat knife you set out to find Captain Tychaeus, a space marine champion that has falle…

METAL SLUG DEFENSE Review

Review SNK PLAYMORE By Alex Beech, 6 months, 3 weeks ago
METAL SLUG DEFENSE Review

When we think Metal Slug, our minds turn to classic arcade side-scroller action. What we don’t think of is the tower defense genre. However, that is precisely the catagory which SNK Playmore's new free-to-play title Metal Slug Defense falls into. That's not to say that there isn't some crossover between the classic games and this new enterprise. Creating a 2D side-scrolling tower defense title has allowed the developer to lift art straight from previous Metal Slug games. Th…

Republique Review

Review Camouflaj LLC By Alex Beech, 6 months, 3 weeks ago
Republique Review

République begins abruptly with you receiving a call from the panicked hero, Hope. Trapped in a totalitarian state, the young girl longs for freedom. Believing that you are her last chance of escape, Hope asks you to use your hacking skills to manipulate the city’s electronics to help free her. It is a strange take on the stealth genre, that has you leading Hope remotely through the oppressive world. The 1984-inspired fiction sees the walls covered with surveillance camer…

Superfrog HD Review

Review Team17 Software Ltd By Alex Beech, 6 months, 3 weeks ago
Superfrog HD Review

Some things - including old and beloved games - are often better left in the past. It isn't that these games were rubbish when they were originally made, rather gaming’s constantly evolving nature leaves many games feeling like relics. Team 17’s Superfrog HD is a perfect example of this. The problems span issues with both the original 1993 Amiga release of Superfrog, and this new HD remake. Take the controls. Not one of the three interface options provide a decent re…

Bridge Constructor Médiéval Review

Bridge Constructor Médiéval Review

Mechanically, Bridge Constructor Médiéval adds very little to the existing Bridge Constructor formula. As before, building your bridge to cross the game’s various chasms is a simple process of selecting the desired materials from the menu and then tracing them into existence within a virtual grid. You have to work within a budget, making the construction process a little more tricky, especially if you want to achieve each stage’s more challengi…

AngerForce - Strikers Review

Review Screambox By Alex Beech, 7 months ago
AngerForce - Strikers Review

If you have ever played a shmup then AngerForce - Strikers will hold few surprises. It's a familiar story: a series of vertically-scrolling levels which have you tracing your craft's path a halestorm of bullets, trying to destroy any enemies in your way. AngerForce you offers three characters to choose from, each with their own special attacks. Which you select will be dependent on your play style, with characters like the robot offering powerful laser attacks that do huge d…
