Ski Safari: Adventure Time Review

Review Cartoon Network By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 6 months ago
Ski Safari: Adventure Time Review

Back in May of 2012, Defiant released Ski Safari, an endless-runner focused around riding animals. It was a surprisingly focused offering which stood out from its peers, so it's not so surprising that a hot property like Adventure Time would want to bend the game's addictive core to its own purposes. Ski Safari: Adventure Time is exactly what you might expect a combination of Ski Safari and Adventure Time to be. The core gameplay remains the same: escape the avalanche by riding animal…


Might & Magic Clash of Heroes Review

Review Ubisoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 6 months ago
Might & Magic Clash of Heroes Review

The appearance of Might & Magic Clash of Heroes on the iOS platform marks its third transplantation from the original DS release. After garnering praise for both its handheld and console release, mobile gamers can now experience the wonderfully paced and executed Tactical-RPG from Capybara Games, the minds behind Critter Crunch and co-authors of Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP. Explaining the mechanics might take a moment, but those paying attention may already remember a g…

Temple Run 2 jogs briskly onto Android

Temple Run 2 jogs briskly onto Android

Just over a week after iOS gamers got to grab the idol for the second time, players with Android devices can now try and outrun a vengeful monkey king in Imangi's Temple Run 2. You can check out our review of the iOS version by clicking here. Temple Run 2 doesn't add much to the 3D endless running template laid down by its predecessor, but it remains an entertaining sprint along a crumbly temple wall all the same, and even throws in hillocks, bends, zip wires, and mine carts to keep you on your toes. If you're looking for some fast, fun, twitchy running on your Android device, you could do a lot worse than heading over to the Google Play Store and grabbing this litle gem for free. Or maybe…


Cracking Sands Review

Review Polarbit By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 6 months ago
Cracking Sands Review

Going solo isn't always easy, especially when a major success like Reckless Racing 2 is under your belt. Polarbit and Pixelbite made a wonderful team and the end result was a racer that may still defining the high-water mark for the top-down racing genre. Recently Pixelbite made a small splash with Repulze, but something was missing - it lacked a sense of whimsy. Now, Polarbit releases their own racer, Cracking Sands, and while the concept is fun and calls upon the shade of Mario Kart,…

Black Shark HD - Helicopter Simulation

News By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 6 months ago
Black Shark HD - Helicopter Simulation

Simulation games are for a certain type of player. Now I'm the first to admit I am not that player, but I can understand the appeal of getting to realistically fly a commercial or military grade aircraft in the safety of your own home. Black Shark HD puts the player in the cockpit of a Russian Ka-50 Attack Helicopter and allows free-flight mode as well as combat missions. The developer has some experience creating simulation games with his previous release, Apache 3D Sim. Here's the trailer. Sadly if you like the look of what you see here, you'll have to wait. The game doesn't release until February 27th. It's something to look forward to at least.…

Redneck Revenge coming soon to iOS

Are you sick of killing zombies on your iOS device yet? If not, Bulkypix has a new game coming out soon that's going to try and sate that violent, undead mulching lust once and for all.

FAA's Free App of the Day: King Oddball

We're working together with the team at Free App Alliance to highlight a great free app for you to check out everyday. "King Oddball is a rather strange title.

You do this across 120 levels, which are packed with collapsing structures and plenty of opportunities to unlock Game Center-powered achievements." Download it now and get the best free apps every day from the Free App Alliance app.  …


Noble Nutlings Review

Review Boomlagoon By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 6 months ago
Noble Nutlings Review

Boomlagoon, the makers of Noble Nutlings have received a lot of buzz thanks to being a company sporting ex-Rovio employees (you know, the developers behind Angry Birds). Before Angry Birds was a hit, Rovio had released many other games for mobile platforms - obviously these did OK for the company as they stayed in business, but what we're saying is it can take a lot of tries before hitting on something that really resonates. Keep this in mind for the review. Each level of Noble Nutli…

Namco Bandai bringing Tekken card battler to iOS and the real world

News By Harry Slater, 1 year, 6 months ago
Namco Bandai bringing Tekken card battler to iOS and the real world

Where Capcom has been brave and bold in bringing its fighting franchises to mobile devices, Namco has been a little less forthcoming, with a port of Dreamcast classic Soul Calibur being their only real foray into the world of pocket gaming. Well, all that is set to change with the release of Tekken Card Tournament, although if you were looking for the high octane thrills and spills of an intricately woven 3D combat system transposed perfectly onto your iPhone or iPad, you're probably going to be a bit disappointed. Instead you're getting a deck building, free to play card battler set in the Tekken universe. Rather than tapping out punches and kicks, you'll throw down digital cards in ord…


ZENONIA® 5 Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 6 months ago
ZENONIA® 5 Review

If nothing else, it has been an interesting experience reviewing Zenonia 5. The last game in the series played by this reviewer was the first, and it's interesting to see what's changed and what has stayed the same. In this latest installment there has been a war brewing between the rich and the poor, so much so that it has attracted the attention of demons. You start off as an apprentice in a small town that has dreamed of this conflict, and embark on a journey to try and put things r…

Super Hexagon arrives on Android

Super Hexagon arrives on Android

It's fair to say that we loved Super Hexagon. If you don't believe us, why not go read our review of Terry Kavanagh's mind warping, reaction testing abstraction of the platform game. When you've done that, come back here and we'll tell you the good news. Sorted? Good. Well, the news is good if you own an Android device, because Super Hexagon is now available from the Google Play Store. If that's enough to convince you to stop reading and go download, you can do that by clicking here. If you need a little more persuading, how about the fact that the Android version is currently on sale at a discount of 66%, which means you can pick it up for less than a dollar.  You'll need an Android…


Little Amazon Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 6 months ago
Little Amazon Review

We come back to this time and time again, but if you design your game towards encouraging people to spend money on In-App Purchases, it should at most be a gentle nudge, and you should most definitely not have your entire game feel like a hampered grind. Little Amazon sadly falls in this latter category. Lily is trying not only to flee the clutches of the evil demon Gruul, but is trying to save the entire kingdom by running faster than she's ever run before. In a neat addition, the sto…
