RollerCoaster Tycoon® 4 Mobile™ Review

Review Atari By Alex Beech, 3 days, 16 hours ago
RollerCoaster Tycoon® 4 Mobile™ Review

Initital impressions of Rollercoaster Tycoon 4 are decent. As with previous entries in the PC series, you must build up your theme park in order to attract customers and their money. Any cash you make can then be poured back into your park, creating an endless but satisfying cycle of development and expansion. Constructing your park is simple. You select the desired building from a list, and then drag it into place using the touchscreen controls. Every building, be it a merry-go-…

Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff Review

Review TinyCo, Inc. By Alex Beech, 1 week, 1 day ago
Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff Review

Our feelings towards Family Guy as a show oscillate wildly. While at times its offensive jokes can seem cruel and almost bigoted, when they hit their stride the writers and performers can deliver big laughs. What Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff manages to do is strip away any uncertainty, handing you a package containing the show's worst aspects in a box that looks remarkable similar to the one which houses The Simpsons: Tapped Out. The  game is predicated on rebuilding the…

Boom Beach Review

Review Supercell By Alex Beech, 2 weeks, 5 days ago
Boom Beach Review

Boom Beach is developer Supercell's follow-up to the phenomenally successful Clash of Clans. This lineage is obvious the moment you boot up the app, with the cartoony visuals, resource management, and tower defense-style battles echoing its fantasy-inspired ancestor.  However, rather than dump you in a Nordic netherword, Boom Beach has you establishing a base on a small tropical island. Your army has arrived to battle the evil Blackguard forces that have captured the surrounding…

Beyond Space Review

Review Bulkypix By Alex Beech, 1 month, 2 weeks ago
Beyond Space Review

The game which Beyond Space wants to be and the game which Beyond Space actually is are two entities light years apart. Developer Bulkypix clearly intended to make an expansive space drama filled with intergalactic and interpersonal conflict. What they actually made was a good space shooter, weighed down by an overly verbose story and horrible voice acting. Max Walker, the star of Space Beyond, is an unfortunate soul. Despite being a talented fighter pilot, he is the ugliest man…

Disco Zoo Review

Review NimbleBit LLC By James Gilmour, 1 month, 3 weeks ago
Disco Zoo Review

Nobody tell PETA, but we have been playing Disco Zoo. And though the animals we're caring for my be digital, we're probably sure in breach of a welfare guidline or two. It isn’t that we don't love them - we do. Disco Zoo's pixel art menagerie is adorable. The problem is that they only generate money for the zoo when awake. As a result, our animals haven’t slept in nearly two days – which can't be good. In our defence, the money is for a good cause – liberating…

Battle Supremacy Review

Battle Supremacy Review

Atypical Games and Revo Studios are probably best known for the historically-slanted Sky Gamblers flight sim series. For their latest foray into our recent and violent past, the developers have decided to try their hands at tank-based warfare in the WWII blaster Battle Supremacy. And, though it's not as deep or uncompromising as a full-blown tank sim, the game occupies arcade-shooter territory with a respectable degree of confidence. The campaign sees you trundling across France, Russ…

Cabela’s Big Game Hunter Review

Review Activision Publishing, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 3 months, 3 weeks ago
Cabela’s Big Game Hunter Review

If you've ever tried one of those pro buck hunter games in the arcade, you know how surprisingly enjoyable hunting games can be. They lure us gamers in with the promise of points and the thrill of the chase. And, let's be honest, it can be quite novel to be shooting something other than humans for a change. Cabela's Big Game Hunter is a hunting sim from Cabela and Activision which provides a wide variety of locales, a host of wild game to shoot, and a decent arsenal of weaponry with w…


Coaster Crazy Deluxe Review

Review Frontier Developments Ltd By Dave Flodine, 4 months, 2 weeks ago
Coaster Crazy Deluxe Review

You'd expect the creators of Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 to be able to cook up a decent coaster-based game for the iPhone. Well, that's exactly what Frontier Developments accomplished last year with Coaster Crazy, a free-to-play rollercoaster creation game based around tailoring individual coasters to their patron's needs. Now a year later, the free-to-play aspects have been removed, new challenges have been added, and two whole new areas have been bolted on. As a result, we thought we'd t…

Chippy Review

Review GLITCHE.RS By James Gilmour, 5 months, 2 weeks ago
Chippy Review

Do you thrive in high pressure situations? I bet your CV says you do. If you genuinely do perform well in high intensity environments, then Chippy might be the game for you. Chippy is a time management game in the style of Diner Dash. You man the fryer in traditional British fish and chip shop. It's your job to keep customers happy by taking their orders and preparing their greasy yet nutritious dinners in a timely fashion. Things start off simple. To cook chips, you simply grab them…

Pandemic: The Board Game Review

Pandemic: The Board Game Review

A viral epidemic is, I'm sure you'll agree, a pretty sizeable catastrophe. In Pandemic: The Board Game, no lees than four deadly viruses are spreading their way across the globe. It's up to four specialists to find the cures before these infections become uncontainable and wipe out humanity. One player can control all four specialists, or four players can work together around a single iPad. The game's rules are pretty simple and easy to understand. Each turn consists of four possible…

Terraria Review

Review 505 Games (US), Inc. By Dave Flodine, 7 months, 2 weeks ago
Terraria Review

Terraria has been a popular PC title since 2011, only making its way to consoles and iOS this year. Its brand of expansive exploration combined with creation and crafting abilities have has earned it the label "the 2D Minecraft”. As it's already well-established as an enjoyable craft-'em-up, our main concern was whether the game had made the leap to the App Store in one piece. The answer: mostly. You start by customising your character's features and inhabiting one of three rand…

Bridgy Jones™ Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 10 months, 1 week ago
Bridgy Jones™ Review

The following is a public service announcement: Those with no grasp of physics or basic engineering (like Dave who, wrote this review) will probably not get the most out of a game like Bridgy Jones. Of course, this isn't to say that it's not a good game. It just that here, as with other construction-based physics games like World of Goo, your enjoyment hinges on how effective you are at throwing up load-bearing scaffolds. In this case, you're throwing up improvised structures to get y…

Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy HD Review

Review CAPCOM By Dave Flodine, 10 months, 2 weeks ago
Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy HD Review

It's been over two years since Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney was released on the App Store, and fans have been eagerly awaiting the next two chapters in this trilogy ever since. Well the good news is that And Justice For All and Trails and Tribulations have arrived as part of the Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy HD. The bad news is that while the graphics have been sharpened up, there are a few niggling issues that do bring the whole experience down a little. The games ar…

Star Command Review

Review Star Command, LLC By Dave Flodine, 11 months, 2 weeks ago
Star Command Review

Star Command has been on the radar for a few years now, being the result of two kickstarter campaigns (one before Double Fine made crowd-sourcing mainstream), and a lot of ambitious ideas. The game that has been released is a small section of the developers' original vision, and what was supposed to be a grand entry into the mobile 4x genre plays like an interesting take on games like Faster Than Light. Even though we're dealing with a smaller scope here, there's still a great experien…

Star Wars Pinball Review

Star Wars Pinball Review

ZEN Studios are digital craftsmen of dream-like virtual pinball machines and the idea of them creating not just one, but three Star Wars themed tables was like a dream come true. While you could pick up these boards as DLC for ZEN Pinball, the standalone App gives you a chance to participate in a Rebel vs. Empire 'metagame', and I couldn't give up the opportunity to bring balance to the force... via the dark side. Your initial purchase will unlock Star Wars Episode V, with The Clone W…
