Review ALPER SARIKAYA By Harry Slater, 1 day, 10 hours ago

Beast Quest Review

Review Miniclip.com By Harry Slater, 1 week, 2 days ago
Beast Quest Review

Harry from Pocket Gamer pulls on a blue jumper, grabs a slightly ineffectual sword, and has a wander through this third-person Infinity Blade-style adventure. But what does he find? He finds some crabs. And a dragon. And then some more crabs. And some fish head people. Cool, right? Eh.…

Stormblades iPad Review

Review Kiloo By Harry Slater, 1 month, 3 weeks ago
Stormblades iPad Review

Stormblades takes the Infinity Blade template, shakes it up a bit, adds some sort of auto-running sections, and wraps everything up in a free to play model. But is that enough? In this video James uses his voice to tell you that Harry from Pocket Gamer thinks it just about is.…

The Witcher Battle Arena Review

Review CD Projekt RED S.A. By James Gilmour, 3 months, 3 weeks ago
The Witcher Battle Arena Review

The App Store has gone a bit MOBA mad recently. First we had Fates Forever, then Vainglory. Now we have a new pretender to the throne: The Witcher Battle Arena, a streamlined interpretation of the classic MOBA format featuring characters from the popular RPG series. But is it worth your time? Pocket Gamer's Matt Thrower reckons so. Check out the video above to learn why.  …

Kritika: Chaos Unleashed Review

Review GAMEVIL Inc. By Alex Beech, 9 months, 3 weeks ago
Kritika: Chaos Unleashed Review

It doesn’t matter which of Kritika: Chaos Unleashed's colourful fighters you choose to play as. Whether you're an angry armoured warrior of powerful she-vixen, this action RPG's fluid, fast-paced combat is accessible from the word go This is largely thanks to virtual-stick and button controls that quickly become second nature. Despite only having limited offensive options when you begin, you'll soon find yourself chaining together 200-hit combos while you pirouette thr…

Rival Knights Review

Review Gameloft By Alex Beech, 11 months, 3 weeks ago
Rival Knights Review

There aren't many medieval sport simulators on App Store. Enter Rival Knights, a game which casts you as a lowly knight who must battle his way through the noble jousting leagues to earn riches and status. Matches begin with you stirring your steed into action. Once charging down the lane, you must build up speed. Spurring on your horse is achieved by the act of stopping a marker on target as it scrolls back and forth along a meter. The final stage of combat has you drop you…

OTTTD iPad Review

Review SMG Studio By Alex Beech, 12 months ago
OTTTD iPad Review

OTTTD (or 'Over The Top Tower Defence') does a pretty good job of living up to its title. Every stage, you are swarmed by bizarre cartoon aliens, and must erect towers to fight them back. Each vanquished foe leaves behind a bloodied corpse, meaning that, within minutes, your base in drenched in an ocean of gore. While the action is frantic, the classic tower defence gameplay is easily mastered thanks to its straightforward controls. Tapping on any construction point brings up a radial…

Star Wars: Assault Team Review

Review Disney By Alex Beech, 1 year, 1 month ago
Star Wars: Assault Team Review

We don't mind admitting that we were excited as we started playing the free-to-play Star Wars: Team Assault. It wasn't the Star Wars fanfare that set our nostalgia glands tingling. That lost its potency long ago. Nope, it was the scenario that got our sabres flaring. Starting just after the original film, you take control of Han Solo as he attempts to infiltrate the Empire. With Han, Chewie, and R2-D2 in your squad, you'd be forgive for thinking the story might evolve into something s…

Captain America: The Winter Soldier - The Official Game Review

Review Gameloft By Alex Beech, 1 year, 1 month ago
Captain America: The Winter Soldier - The Official Game Review

We are willing to bet that Captain America: The Winter Soldier - The Official Game is not a direct translation of the source movie's plot. This is because so many of Cap’s iconic nemeses that appear in this game that, were the movie to follow the story, you would need to bring a sleeping bag into the cinema along with your popcorn The Super Soldier is now operating as a member of S.H.I.E.L.D. under orders from Nick Fury. You must guide him and a small two man strike force into a…

Lionheart Tactics Review

Review Kongregate By Alex Beech, 1 year, 1 month ago
Lionheart Tactics Review

It is easy to like Lionheart Tactics. Unlike similar Japanese tactical RPGs, it hurls you straight into combat avoiding the long-winded intros and back-story that can limit the genre's appeal. The expectations set by Lionheart Tactics's anime portrait art make its opening pace jarring, as it shatters genre conventions. Taking control of a sleeping king, you are awakened by a sound, and thrown straight into battle. Each arena serves as a tutorial to various elements of the game, i…

Shivah Review

Review Wadjet Eye Games LLC By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Shivah Review

Earlier in the year, Wadjet Eye Games brought their critically acclaimed sci-fi adventure Gemini Rue to the App Store. Before Gemini Rue, however, Dave Gilbert created The Shivah, a game which won him an adventure game competition and led to the formation of his company. Now all these years later, he's decided to upgrade the visuals to create the Kosher Edition. The question, of course, is whether the game holds up all these years later, and if it has made the transition to iOS unscath…
