FIFA SOCCER 13 by EA SPORTS Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 6 months ago
FIFA SOCCER 13 by EA SPORTS Review

The waves keep crashing against the beach; the sun keeps rising; and the moon’s orbit slowly decays to an eventual stop; such are the many natural things we can can count on to happen every day, including Electronic Arts’ inevitable update to the FIFA franchise. If you detect a slightly sour bitterness on the palette, don’t worry, it’s just a sore point borne of the cyclical nature of the game industry. There is, however, a benefit to this kind of repet…

Mad Skills BMX Review

Review Turborilla By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 8 months ago
Mad Skills BMX Review

One of the biggest hurdle to overcome when trying to create a competitive title such as Mad Skills BMX is in being able to make it approachable for casual players while still catering to the hardcore crowd. Turborilla's solution was an elegant one - focus on the flow of the controls and the feel of smoothly sailing through the air to nail that perfect landing, and newcomers or veterans alike will be hooked. Virtual controls are history in Mad Skill BMX and players can choose to either…

Score! Classic Goals Review

Review First Touch By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Score! Classic Goals Review

Even those of you who aren't fans of the closest thing to a world sport we have in football (or soccer as it is also known), should be able to admit the most exciting part of the game is the goals. Now of course this is partly due to them being such a rarity, but it's also due to the combination of skill, strategy, and just the right dash of luck for everything to come together and wow the crowds. Score! Classic Goals is a football game that focuses on recreating the most famous goals…

Extreme Skater Review

Review Miniclip.com By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Extreme Skater Review

I guess there comes a point in any skateboarder's life when all the skate parks, half pipes, ramps, and grind rails just don't shine with the challenge of excitement that once was. One lucky skater was in the forest when a crystallized meteor crashed, not only giving him super powers, but converting the landscape into the extreme skate park of his dreams. Welcome to Extreme Skater. Each level is an obstacle course that ends with your skater reaching a chunk of crystal. The game starts…

Virtua Tennis Challenge Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
Virtua Tennis Challenge Review

Unlike so many who fondly remember Virtua Tennis from its heyday on the Dreamcast, I recall many a shiny dollar being pumped in to the machine at the local Arcade (or if I was lucky, a bunch of free plays during a lock-in night). Combining both the complexity of athletic Tennis and the simplicity of Arcade controls, it was a smash hit. Now on the iOS it has a chance to ensnare even more people, but as you'd expect it's not an entirely smooth ride. Despite the minimum fourth-gen iDevic…

Golf Squared Review

Review Dynamo Games By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Golf Squared Review

There are two types of golf games on the iPhone, and it's not as simple as breaking them up into simulation and arcade virtual golf experiences. Most golf games are in 3D, and colorful characters and crazy power-ups aside, they represent a somewhat accurate portrayal of playing the sport. Another type of game has arisen on mobile devices however, and Golf Squared is the latest of these 2D side-scrolling golf experiences, which eschew the finer details of the game for odd level design a…

Penny Time Review

Penny Time Review

Licensed games, whether they be for a movie, TV show, book, or a brand always make gamers raise their eyebrows with caution. It's not the idea of marketing tie-ins, but more that in about ninety five percent of cases, these games are absolutely terrible. Isn't it funny then that when a brand spends the time and effort to make a truly engaging game, the idea of the brand tie-in seems almost quaint? That's exactly what we have here with Penny Skateboards, and their game Penny Time. Anyo…

AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! (Force = Mass x Acceleration) Review

Review Dejobaan Games, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! (Force = Mass x Acceleration) Review

Elegance is a word you have to use when you describe a game like 'Aaaa!!! F=ma' by Dejobaan Games and Owlchemy Labs, if only because it takes such a compact and simple concept (falling) and turns it in to something so utterly addictive that you will wonder how you managed to do without playing the game any sooner. Those who have played the original PC and Mac version 'A Reckless Disregard for Gravity' may wonder if the word 'elegant' is entirely appropriate given the game's somewhat ra…

WrestleFest Premium Review

Review THQ Inc. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
WrestleFest Premium Review

Full disclosure here, Dave is a huge wrestling fan. Having watched various promotions from the late 80s all the way up to today, this either makes him the best candidate to review this remake of the arcade classic Wrestlefest, or perhaps the worst. It's all how you look at it. Nonetheless this is how it's gotta be so let's see if THQ can take what made the original Wrestlefest so fun to play and make it shine on the iPhone. The original game only had two modes, Battle Royal, and Tag T…

NFL Kicker! Review

Review Full Fat By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
NFL Kicker! Review

The last time Full Fat dropped a game on to the App Store we were treated to a unique take on the sport as players focused their attention on the role of the quarterback. In continuing with their NFL licensed releases the developer has switched to kicking field goals, bringing it more in line with their previous titles. For those not already familiar with flick-based sports titles, the basic gameplay revolves around attempting to flick a ball (in this case an American football) in to…

Review Kairosoft Co.,Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Pocket League Story Review

Here we are again - a new month rolls by and iOS gamers have themselves a new Kairosoft game to obssess over. This time around the management game specialist has taken aim at the world of sports, following up on their excellent racer Grand Prix Story with a football based title, Pocket League Story. Those interested in the world of football will immediately point out that such a title is neither new, nor exactly lacking in variety, with fans being able to play games that either focus…

Ice Rage Review

Review Mountain Sheep By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Ice Rage Review

An often ignored aspect of portable gaming is the opportunity to involve other people directly in the game you're playing. This doesn't always go smoothly and 'multiplayer' modes involving 'passing' the device can feel incredibly clunky. As such, the iOS multi-touch feature created an opportunity for more than one person to play a game at the same time and Mountain Sheep's (Bike Baron, Death Rally, Minigore) latest release Ice Rage tries to cash in on this style of play. At its core I…

NFL Flick Quarterback Review

Review Full Fat By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
NFL Flick Quarterback Review

It has only been three months or so since Full Fat made their last appearance on the App Store and once again the developer has expanded the 'Flick' series to include all 32 official teams in their new title, NFL Flick Quarterback. While the idea was first introduced in Flick Golf Extreme!, Flick QB requires players to judge their flicks to not only accurately reach their goal, but also to predict where the receiver is running to in order to score bonuses. To make things even harder t…

RPM: Gymkhana Racing Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
RPM: Gymkhana Racing Review

When it comes to sports and racing games, players usually fall into two camps. Do you prefer a simulation game style, or an arcade one? RPM falls in the latter category as it is focused primarily on drifting, and accomplishing many varied and strange tasks while drifting. The game is controlled from an overhead 3rd person view. Hitting the accelerator will propel your car forward but since the slightest shift in turn will begin the drifting that is at the center of the game, you need…
