Transworld Endless Skater Review

Review Supervillain Studios By Alex Beech, 5 months, 1 week ago
Transworld Endless Skater Review

The Tony Hawk series popularised the skateboarding genre back on the original Playstation. It's twitch-based gameplay made it perfect chasing high scores with friends, but proved difficult to replicate on touchscreen. Transworld Endless Skater has taken that trick-fueled formula and strapped on a unique control system to create a skateboarding endless runner. Once rolling, your skater moves forward automatically. You can switch between three lanes by swiping the bottom-left of th…

Urban Trial Freestyle Review

Urban Trial Freestyle is a port of a Playstation game that offers you the chance to try the sport of motorcycle trials. Hopping onto a two-wheeled trickster, you must defy gravity to fly over all manner of outlandish urban areas, and make it to the end of each track.

Table Tennis Touch Review

Review Yakuto By Alex Beech, 7 months, 1 week 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…

Joe Danger Infinity Review

Review Hello Games By James Gilmour, 11 months, 2 weeks ago
Joe Danger Infinity Review

Joe Danger was one of those games that leapt effortlessly from the console realm, and managed to land perfectly on the mobile platform. The sequel, Joe Danger Infinity, reminds us precisely why we loved the first game, and gives us a generous selection of meticulously designed levels, colourful characters, and new vehicles to discover. Rather than assuming control of Joe himself, the sequel has you taking charge of a Joe Danger action figure. Given his diminutive proportions, the full…

Soccer Moves Review

Review Fuzzy Logic (Pty) Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 1 month ago
Soccer Moves Review

Soccer Moves' turn-based soccer gameplay presents a profound metaphysical question. Sure, the goal is to move, pass, and score a goal by outwitting your opposition. However, your teammates are exact replicas of one another, raising a deeper question about the various roles we assume and shift between in the games we play. We're just kidding - it's about balls and that. Instead of employing the grids used in most turn based strategy titles, Soccer Moves uses a radial system to co…

Colin McRae Rally Review

Colin McRae Rally Review

Disclaimer: I am not much a racing fan. Perhaps it's having to deal with crazy drivers on the road everyday, but watching high speed vehicles zoom around perilous twists and turns, seeing drivers taking their lives into their own hands... Well, it's just a little bit much. The one exception is rally driving. In this discipline, the drivers are competing more against the clock than each other. Ultimately, they are competing with themselves, trying to perfect each corner they take to se…

Kingpin Lanes Review

Review Speedbump By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
Kingpin Lanes Review

This is our third time out playing a game from Speedbump Studios and the developer is starting to show a distinctive theme throughout them all. Kingpin Lanes may be a fairly simple and arcade-ish ten pin bowling title, but it's married to a free-roaming, interactive world, engaging the player in a way few other games would even attempt to try. Think of your character as a living, breathing individual who enjoys visiting the local lanes to make a little bit of extra cash by wagering on…

Super Stickman Golf 2 Review

Review Noodlecake Studios Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
Super Stickman Golf 2 Review

When we first encountered Super Stickman Golf by Noodlecake Studios it was hard to keep our joy contained. At its core the game was a by-the-numbers 2D golfing title, however the clever addition of power-ups that required skill to obtain, and added even more depth and gameplay options once obtained made it a solid gold title. Super Stickman Golf 2 has a huge legacy to live up to, and while the core once again remains the same, it's the small details that continue to keep the series run…

Tiliard Review

Review 2 Key Players By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 9 months ago
Tiliard Review

Tiliard is the fusion of tiles and billiards. How does that work you ask? Am I going to be using a pool cue to smash ceramics across a table? Well as interesting as that sounds, no... but Tiliard is plenty interesting in its own right. It's a turn based puzzle game where you need to sink all the tiled balls in the pockets of the table in as few moves as possible. Sound easy? Well there's some extra mechanics that haven't been explained yet. First and foremost, you know how in pool, ev…

Krashlander Review

Review Farseer Games LLC By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Krashlander Review

So apparently evil robots from another planet have destroyed our world (again), and humanity's defense in this game's case is to don a suit so you can ski down slopes, crashing into the robots, and destroying them. Their one weakness! Krashlander has you traversing hazardous mountain paths with the end goal of smacking into these robots, before moving onto the next mission. It's a physics based arcade game in bite sized levels, but there is one crucial difference here, the control sche…

Undead Soccer Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Undead Soccer Review

Late last year, The Bowling Dead was released, a novel take on the over-saturated zombie genre that had you flinging bowling balls at zombies. To be honest, we didn't foresee that other sports might also lend themselves to killing the undead, so the release of Undead Soccer kind of caught us by surprise. You flick soccer balls at zombies before they can reach you and munch your face off. A simple, and somewhat engaging premise, but like so many games on the iOS platform these days, a h…

TABLE TOP RACING Review

Review Playrise Edge Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
TABLE TOP RACING Review

When reviewing a title I often come across an internal dialogue in the form of a line of questioning that ends up sounding a little like this: "Where's all the depth? Shouldn't there be more stuff I can do?", "Does it matter? Are you having fun?", "Actually I am, but I'm afraid it won't last". For a game sporting as little as 8 stages and 10 vehicles, you'd think the fun would quickly run out, but Playrise Edge have nailed Table Top Racing's 'Kart' gameplay so perfectly that it's hard…

Death Golf™ Review

Review Ayopa Games LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Death Golf™ Review

Sometimes I wonder if we went down the wrong trouser leg of history and ended up with a version of Golf utterly devoid of any excitement or tension. Of course there's skill involved in making accurate shots and in a competitive environment you could argue for some sort of conflict occurring, but ultimately it's hitting a ball in the safe, lush confines of a green wonderland. Utterly safe. Utterly boring. Death Golf is like the other trouser leg - it's a world where golf is a struggle…

Pumped: BMX Review

Review Yeah Us! By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Pumped: BMX Review

Pumped: BMX by Yeah Us! isn't the first bike-themed time-trial and trick-scoring racer we've seen, and I doubt it will be the last, but what it lacks in concept originality, it makes up for in complexity. It may sound like I'm giving the game grief, but complexity isn't inherently a bad thing - in fact, when implemented competently (which is true of this title) it makes for a rewarding experience as you nail those jumps, pull off a few tricks, and glide to the end feeling like you jus…

The Bowling Dead Review

The Bowling Dead Review

[This title is featured as the Mini-Review for the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 30th of November, 2012] It's a thin premise, but The Bowling Dead by Slant Six Games and Activision places you in the unusual position of a zombie apocalypse survivor who discovers a bowling ball that seems to be the only thing that can stop them. Obviously the first part isn't new, but the second part results in a strangely addictive title. It's a sort of mash up between Full Fat's Zombie Flick and a basi…
