Roar Rampage Review

Review FDG Entertainment By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Roar Rampage Review

There are a lot of early gaming memories associated with the game Rampage. Taking the form of a gigantic mutant ape, lizard, or wolf, your goal was to wreck havoc by punching buildings and eating citizens all over the United States. In Roar Rampage, the goal is to wreck havoc by punching buildings with a giant lizard, but that's where the similarities end. This dino needs all the help it can get as you whip its giant noodle arm adorned with boxing glove at city structures, as well as u…

Rise of the Blobs Review

Review Robot Invader By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Rise of the Blobs Review

Observe the valiant marshmallow, standing atop his pillar of righteousness, casting down fruit at any lowly blob that dares rise above its station. OK, so that's not what's happening here in Rise of the Blobs, well aside from the marshmallow and the pillar... and the blobs of course. Think of this as a rotating reverse Tetris in which you need to be vigilant, surveying around the spire, while throwing the right colored fruit on the right colored blob so you can tap it, make it go squis…

Solar 2 iPad Review

Review Jay Watts By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 5 months ago
Solar 2 iPad Review

Situations like this aren't as common as you'd think on the App Store. While there is a somewhat sinister undercurrent of releases that step over the line of 'inspired by' and in to 'theft', being able to play the 'real thing' doesn't always happen; at least not as quickly as this. Solar 2 by Jay Watts (also known as Murudai) is everything I had hoped to see from the recently released 'Tiny Solar'. No prizes for guessing that Solar 2 was the title having its content stolen. Ultimately…

After the prestigious movie awards over the weekend, it's now the turn of the games industry in the UK to reward the movers and shakers of the last twelve months, and there's more than a few iOS games in the mix for the big prizes.

Ron Gilbert Opens For PAX Australia 2013

While I was already excited by the prospect of seeing The Protomen, MC Frontalot, and the RoosterTeeth crew (again) at PAX Australia, this latest tit-bit has taken me over the edge. Gamers may know Ron Gilbert for his work on Monkey Island, DeathSpank, and more recently pairing up with Tim Schafer in discussing the 'Double Fine Adventure' on Kickstarter. I'd be putting it lightly if I said his work has been extremely formative for me, and perhaps many other gamers headed to the giant gaming event, so you can expect me to be there front and centre. We'll be covering the event live from Melbourne so you don't miss out on any juicy iOS news we can score. Want to head to PAX Australia 2013? T…

App Wrap Up (Weekend Edition, 11th February, 2013)

Hey hey readers! It's time for yet another edition of your favourite regular feature on the site, the App Wrap Up! As always we're going to take a look at some trailers of released games that may have fallen under the radar. These games were chosen as while they may not have wide spread appeal, there is something about them that looks interesting. Let's get started!   Food Run HD (Pixels on Toast) I dunno, there's just something about not only leading a parade of running food items through a level that amuses me, but the levels themselves look well designed with a nice sense of flow. Might be worth checking out for platformer fans.[App Store Link]   Diibs Odyssey (Boxed Pig)…


Dungelot Review

Dungelot Review

The rogue-like is a very niche and hardcore game genre. Simply, they are dungeon crawling RPGs that follow the design of the game Rogue, released in 1980. They often share a map overview perspective, rely on random levels, usually have a form of permanent death, and are notoriously difficult and unforgiving. Dungelot is an attempt to introduce a more casual player to the genre through a simple tap interface and streamlining the exploration and leveling mechanics. Is this attempt at acc…

Momonga Pinball Adventures Review

Review Paladin Studios By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Momonga Pinball Adventures Review

Momonga Pinball Adventures is the story of a tribe of Japanese flying squirrels that are captured by a clan of owls, and thus our hero Momo is mentored by a Panda to go and save them, later running into a Mole on the journey. This is going to be one of those games isn't it. The core gameplay is pinball, as you use paddles to fling Momo against targets and through passageways all the way to the end of each individual level. There's something fascinating about taking the mechanics of a h…
