Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin Review

Review Microsoft Corporation By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 6 months ago
Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin Review

2012 must be the year of the tentacle (which sounds like a great sequel to the famous Lucasarts adventure game). How else can you explain not one but two highly unique, and successful games based about an octopus’ numerous noodly appendages? Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin, made by Microsoft Studios, out of all unlikely developers is a tale of a lab created abomination named Lemmy, who is swallowed by his creator, the mad scientist Dr. Phluff (who has the head of a dolphin), and has…

Ivy the Kiwi? makes it to iOS

Ivy the Kiwi? makes it to iOS

Ivy the Kiwi?, Yuji Naka's impressive vine swinging platformer, has finally made its way on to the App Store, bringing with it all of the former head of Sonic Team's design nous and charm. The game is all about guiding a stranded, flightless Kiwi through 50 levels, with the ultimate goal of reuniting her with her mother. Ivy's too young to jump or fly though, so you need to help her by pulling vines down for her to swing on. Highly praised when it first came out on Windows Phone, and when it was released on the Nintendo DS, the game is perfectly at home on touchscreen devices, and is a must buy for anyone with a penchant for platforming fun. Best of all, it's launched at a discounted pr…


I Always Kind Of Suspected it

I Always Kind Of Suspected it

Clumsy Cat is a game where as the house feline, you have to break as much stuff as possible. Not being a cat person, this type of action doesn't surprise me in the least. Have a look at the trailer to see what kind of hijinks are in store when the game is released on October 18th…


Zombies just in time for Halloween

Zombies just in time for Halloween

Yes it's another zombie game, but being released on October 25th right before Halloween at least makes it a zombie game coming out at an appropriate time. It's NY Zombies 2, and it's shaping up to be a half decent first person zombie killing experience judging from the gameplay trailer. At least you get to gun down the undead in a lot of famous New York landmarks.…


How many Double Entendres can you Stuff into a Game Trailer?

How many Double Entendres can you Stuff into a Game Trailer?

While the game Hairy Balls is already out, the accompanying trailer is just so full of face-palming innuendos that we had to post it here. It definitly has a lot of character and a confident sense of humour (although your millage may very here). The app is free to download and if you're looking for a new puzzle game, why not give it a try.…


Crazy Taxi skids onto the App Store

Crazy Taxi skids onto the App Store

Sega's Arcade and Dreamcast classic Crazy Taxi should be making its way to an App Store near you anytime soon, bringing with it the smell of burning rubber and the sound of mid-nineties punk rock. The game, for those of you who haven't played it, is all about delivering fares to their destination before the time runs out, with some point scoring power sliding and insane jumps thrown in for good measure. It's the latest in an increasingly long line of Sega properties that are making their way onto iOS devices. We've already seen a swathe of Sonic games, but there are more Dreamcast classics on the horizon too, so watch this space. Crazy Taxi should set you back around $4.99 once it lands…


Re-Volt Classic Review

Review Big Bit Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 6 months ago
Re-Volt Classic Review

Not everything is better the second time around - sure we can point to the many 'Karting' titles of the 90s, including greats like the Micro Machines series, but it's 2012 and you'd hope the formula would have changed by now. Re-Volt was, for its time, a fun and frantic 3D racer with a toy's-eye-view of the world, but with little changed since its release the title feels like it hasn't fared well over time. After picking from the initial set of unlocked vehicles the player is able to…

Debut Gameplay Trailer for Badland

Debut Gameplay Trailer for Badland

It's not often that the first visuals of a game can be impressive (after all, it's easy to quickly become jaded when dealing with so many games day in and day out), but after the first few seconds of this gameplay video for the upcoming Frogmind Games release Badland, i sat up and took notice. Let's hope that the gameplay remains as enticing as the atmosphere. As of now, there is no scheduled release date for the game, but we'll let you know when that changes.…

Changing the World

This Thursday, Topia will be released in the App Store. Not really a game, it's a world building simulation. You can terraform the land to your liking, introduce animals of all variaties, and watch what happens. It looks like a lot of fun, and is quite visually impressive (with rather simplistic controls). Have a look at the trailer.…

Aloha from Hawaii

No no, i'm not just saying hello. Aloha From Hawaii is a penguin based platformer that's due for release sometime this fall. Just from the teaser trailer, it looks to have a lot of personality. Whether that personality will translate into fun and addictive gameplay, only time and its eventual release will tell. We'll keep you posted. For now, here's the trailer.…


Grow Away! Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 6 months ago
Grow Away! Review

The rodents and pests of the world have run out of junk food to eat, so now they're after the plants and vegetables. What's a tomato to do? Taking a page out of the Angry Bird playbook they jump in to a slingshot and fire themselves - kamikaze style - in to the waves of creatures headed for their barricade. Grow Away! by Soco Soft is a disturbing concept when you break it down, but seeing as it's all colorful explosions and cute faces, I guess we can let that tid-bit slide. Essentiall…

He-Man brawler coming to iOS

He-Man brawler coming to iOS

If, like me, you have a soft spot for mid eighties cartoons, then you're going to be leaping around, giddy with joy at the announcement over on IGN that a new He-Man brawler is heading to iOS devices. The game is a side scrolling hack-and-slasher, and features seven different areas of Eternia, split into twenty seven different levels, for you to brawl your way through. The game is published by Chillingo, and developed by Glitchsoft, who created the pretty darn good Star Marine: Infinite Ammo. As you can tell from the screenshot above, it's looking gorgeous, with chunky sprites that pay homage to the original cartoon. There's no firm release date yet, although we expect the game will be…


Dead Stop™ Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 6 months ago
Dead Stop™ Review

Dead Stop is a combination of two overplayed elements of the App Store. The first is the use of zombies, and the second is creating a game type similar to that of a very popular title. In the second case, the tower defense genre has waned in popularity the last couple of years, and if a game is good, who cares if it uses the undead? Dead Stop has these rationales working in its favor, delivering a solid TD experience that happens to feature zombies as its main antagonizers. The zombie…

Snail Bob Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 6 months ago
Snail Bob Review

Some would argue that the iOS platform is always going to be a casual one - of course there's the occasional 'hardcore' release, but with so much money to be made off those who just want a quick, but fun distraction, it's easy to see why deep and challenging titles aren't more common. Snail Bob is yet another 3-star physics puzzler, joining the already large fray, but it goes for that third, even more elusive market, the young-gamer. Snail Bob just wants to get home, but on the way he…

Legend of Fat Ninja Review

Review Zephyr Games By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 6 months ago
Legend of Fat Ninja Review

Developers, if you call your game Legend of Fat Ninja, I expect to see a fat ninja. Not just a hearty ninja which is what we have in this offering. The main reason is after graduating from the Iron Skillet Academy, Fat Ninja is on a quest to find the best ingredients possible, but also to crush the competition with his nin-jitsu. This is accomplished by pinballing around the level like a loon, and would be a lot more amusing if our character was just a little heavier. If wishes were ho…
