Flick Soccer! Review

Review Full Fat By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Flick Soccer! Review

This isn't Full Fat's first rodeo when it comes to flick-based sport games - in fact, it's not their first soccer (football) based title either. However Flick Soccer! is the first to approach the sport in their relatively new 'Flick' series, so we'll give them a pass. The real challenge of tackling a game like this is in trying to differentiate it from the many similar flick-based sports games that have trickled their way on to the App Store. Thankfully one major advantage the game ha…

Dice Soccer! Review

Review LambdaMu Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 12 months ago
Dice Soccer! Review

It's finally happened! The pairing you were waiting for. The fast paced action of soccer combined with the slow methodical tension of a dice roll. I guess both games require luck but while an odd pairing, Dice Soccer is a pretty addictive title. You are the manager of a soccer team. Starting in a training camp you have to win or draw matches to earn enough stars to move up the ranks and compete in the big leagues. You have three lines of players. Three forwards, three defense, and a g…

Xtreme Wheels Review

Review Bravo By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years ago
Xtreme Wheels Review

As far as 'extreme' sports go, motocross manages to simultaneously combine something familiar and already dangerous (motorcycling) and give it a rough, dirty and at times, spectacular edge to its antics. No wonder we've already seen developers try to capture the spirit of skill and insanity that comes with using a motocross bike, but if one game truly stands out of late it's Trials HD on the 360. Similar concepts have made their way on to the App Store in the past (Moto X Mayhem), but…

Flick Golf Extreme! Review

Review Full Fat By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Flick Golf Extreme! Review

It's odd what you might consider 'missing' from a game until you're handed it on a plate. While Flick Golf by Full Fat is still a fun distraction, it's not terribly exciting. I hear you asking, 'But it's golf - what else did you expect?' - well, it seems that the latest incarnation of the series has answered this question. How about teeing off from a helicopter on to an aircraft carrier? How does that float your boat? If you're not already familiar with 'flick' titles in general, the…

Ducati Challenge Review

Review Digital Tales By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Ducati Challenge Review

Motorcycle racers have come and gone with varying amounts of success on the App Store, but when most people have constant contact with four-wheeled vehicles it's not easy to convince them that two-wheels can feel just as natural in a virtual environment. Ducati Challenge by Digital Tales strides ahead of those that have come before, packing smooth controls and a realistic feel that players can ease in to as they master earlier stages of the game. Unfortunately there are no alternative…

Icebreaker Hockey™ Review

Review NaturalMotion By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Icebreaker Hockey™ Review

NaturalMotion are at it again and this time players are taken off the field and on to the ice as you attempt to spin, deke, stop or sprint your way past checks in Icebreaker Hockey. Sadly, what could have been an opportunity to try something out of the ordinary instead feels bland and more like a coat of paint thrown over the earlier Backbreaker series. Fans of the series will be able to jump right in as the controls and basic gameplay are left almost completely intact. Tilting will m…

Touchgrind BMX Review

Review Illusion Labs By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Touchgrind BMX Review

Touchgrind BMX by Illusion Labs is the sort of game that builds fans; not just the regular kind that love the game, but the kind that's willing to give a game a shot because it's made by 'that' company. BMX has come a long way since the 2008 finger-flipping skateboard game from the early days of the App Store and anyone who has spent time enjoying games like Tony Hawk's Pro Skater are likely to lose themselves for days on this high-scoring title. After watching three brief in-game tut…

First Touch Soccer Review

Review Exient IP Limited By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
First Touch Soccer Review

If there's one thing you can count on in the video game world, it's a football game. That isn't to say they're all great, but at times they can feel like the three-match or twin-stick shooter of the sporting genre (with its twin rival being the arcade racer). Thankfully developers like Exient have taken the challenge of creating a football title seriously and much like X2 Soccer, First Touch Soccer seeks to take the game even further on the touch-based platform. The biggest change has…

Frisbee® Forever Review

Review Kiloo By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Frisbee® Forever Review

I'm almost disappointed that Frisbee Forever by Kiloo Games didn't come out sooner, what with Tron: Legacy being released last year, especially considering the original film managed to turn something as casual as flipping a disc between buddies in to a deadly sport. At any rate, this title is more about timing and skilled maneuvering of your Frisbee to collect stars as you dodge and weave your way through bright and colorful courses around a fantasy world. Players can choose between t…

Tiger Woods PGA TOUR® 12 Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
Tiger Woods PGA TOUR® 12 Review

With the usual smattering of casual golfing titles often taking the forefront on the App Store, it's nice to see a serious golf simulation title now and then and Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 12 certainly goes out of its way to please in this regard. Featuring smooth, realistic graphics; a tight control system with a few neat changes; and gameplay modes that vary from the ultra-casual to completely serious, it's almost the complete package for fans of golfing titles. Those familiar with recent…

Snowboard Hero Review

Review FISHLABS By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
Snowboard Hero Review

Has snowboarding ever not been a fairly cool sport to enjoy? For one, you're essentially surfing on snow, but with the added bonus of being able to grind rails and perform crazy stunts much like a skateboarder. It's hard to be unimpressed by the antics of truly talented snowboarders and the sport has found itself the subject of many arcade sports titles including the latest title from FISHLABS, Snowboard Hero. After choosing from one of the four currently available characters, players…

iStunt 2 - Snowboard Review

Review Miniclip.com By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
iStunt 2 - Snowboard Review

Although Winter may be coming to an end, there's no reason to pack in your hopes for enjoying the snow slopes with a bit of snowboarding action thanks to iStunt 2 by Miniclip. Although I should point out that anyone trying to perform the stunts in this game in real life should probably be committed, but hey... what's to stop someone from accidentally inventing a gravity reversing machine in the process. While the early levels of the 42 currently available set a fairly relaxed and mayb…

Hockey Nations 2011 Pro Review

Review Distinctive Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
Hockey Nations 2011 Pro Review

Finding a decent Ice Hockey title isn't always easy and while the 2K series certainly has its charms it's not always the most complete in its representation of the sport. Hockey Nations 2011 Pro by Distinctive Developments attempts to pack in a whole lot of features while still looking and feeling great, but a few rough edges keep it from really leading the pack. For those not already embedded in the sport, attempting to fathom how to approach the game can be challenging as there's no…

Fight Night Champion by EA Sports™ Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Fight Night Champion by EA Sports™ Review

Where previous games in the Fight Night series by EA Sports had a far more upbeat and glitzy presentation, Champion, the fifth title in the series, is following the movie-based trend of depicting the sport in a 'grittier' fashion. If nothing else it highlights some of the brutal aspects of Boxing without glossing it over with light shows and glitter-cannons, but the iOS release does away with the new story-based 'Champion mode', leaving players with nothing more than a straight boxing…

Speedball 2 Evolution Review

Review Tower Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Speedball 2 Evolution Review

The Speedball series by The Bitmap Brothers has in many ways come to define the future of brutal fantasy sports titles with its influence being evident in arcade titles like Midway's NBA Jam and NFL Blitz. Now modern iOS gamers and old-school fans alike can dive straight back in to the Speedball series with Speedball 2 Evolution by Tower Studios and despite some wonky control issues it feels as manic and exciting as it did all those years ago. Players can choose between tilt or touch-…
