iPhone 5 'Leaked' Advert (Rumor)

iPhone 5 'Leaked' Advert (Rumor)

We're just shy of Apple's full announcement of the iPhone 5 and it seems a leak has sprung... not that we're calling this video legitimate, but it walks the walk, so we're not complaining! The fingerprint scanner has me kind of excited, so it's fingers-crossed that we see this hit the final version.…


Super Hexagon Review

Review Terry Cavanagh By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 7 months ago
Super Hexagon Review

Sometimes the simplest titles can be the hardest to review. When there's depth, it can take a large paragraph or two to explain the mechanics at play, but on the opposite end, you may be clambering for anything to fill space. If it hasn't been given away yet, Super Hexagon by Terry Cavanagh of VVVVVV fame is a very simple game. One shouldn't take that as reason to overlook this title however, for we have a word for when simplicity meets quality, and that word is elegance. At the menu…

HUEBRIX Review

HUEBRIX Review

Upon loading up Huebrix, I was instantly reminded of one of the great underrated puzzle games of the App Store, Pathpix. In both games you have to drag a color over a predetermined number of squares on a grid to fill in the entirety of the level. While in Pathpix, this presented you with a completed image and a clever quote, Huebrix rewards you by having your color trails turn into sentient worm creatures that slither off the screen, escaping your perception. Of course that's not the o…

The Last Driver Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 7 months ago
The Last Driver Review

It seems that at the same time the world is beset by zombie apocalypse, alien invasion, and nuclear annihilation (which was obviously triggered to combat the first two horrors). Despite all this, there are still survivors, and some of them have cars. You might be the only one with a working car however. The game is called The Last Driver after all. Fans of flash games will recognize the design here, as it's quite popular. Play the game, die rather quickly, use your coins to upgrade yo…

Dragon Island Blue Review

Review NTT Resonant Inc. By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 7 months ago
Dragon Island Blue Review

With dragons thought to be an extinct species, and you just happening to find a dragon egg next to your village, a grand adventure begins. When first loading up Dragon Island Blue, it wasn't set in stone what type of game we were expecting to play, but what unfurled is a mix between an old school JRPG and a mix between Pokemon and Monster Hunter. The game begins with you choosing what element of dragon you've found out of the four elements of water, fire, air, and earth. From here you…

VS. Racing 2 Review

Review Northcube AB By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
VS. Racing 2 Review

While other top-down racers are content to keep pushing the visual boundaries of the iOS platform, VS. Racing 2 sticks with the tried-and-true 2D sprite system (albeit with some 3D elements adding depth), and even more surprisingly, controls that require - at most - two fingers. The overall effect is that of the game feeling very tightly designed - it efficiently throws you amongst a variety of AI opponents on winding and twisting tracks where you vie for pole-position to earn as much…

Rolling Rolling Rolling

The Way We Roll is a rolling based puzzle game that's due out on September the 12th. From the trailer we can see it has a pleasing art style, and the puzzle design looks to be solid (even though the concept itself isn't anything we haven't see before). You'll get a chance to find out for yourself later this week when it's released.…


Little Masters Review

Review Riida.com By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
Little Masters Review

The freemium model has a tendency to get stuck in its tracks, spitting out titles with similar themes or at least based on similar genres. With this in mind it's no wonder gamers are clearly divided on whether they love or hate these sorts of titles. Little Masters takes a slightly different tack, modeling itself after NimbleBit's coin/bux driven system to speed up the Pokemon-inspired gameplay. 'Inspired' might be putting it lightly - those familiar with the classic monster-catching…

Friday News Wrap-Up 7 September 2012

I can’t believe we’re already this deep into September already - I guess that means I’ll need to work up a Top 3 list (hint, it may be out on Tuesday), but in the meantime I have reviews and news to dispense, so lets hit up the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 7th of September, 2012. Assassin's Creed Utopia - Sim City with stabbingDespite the vague 'Winter' release date, the Assassin's Creed spin off title for iOS, dubbed 'Utopia', is looking mighty fine. I'm also happy to report that in a continued effort by Ubisoft to 'disconnect' from always-on Internet designed games, the only link between this title and Assassin's Creed 3 is that it will effectively lead up to th…


Night Flight Review

Review Cezary Rajkowski By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 7 months ago
Night Flight Review

A lone teddy bear wakes up in the dark recesses of a toy factory, greeted by the haunting vision of strung up stuffed animals around him. Finding a toy bi-plane, he chooses to fly his way to freedom. Though the game is called Night Flight, we didn't expect it to be so dark. Flying around the factory is simple in theory, but execution is a tad different. Touching the left side of the screen will turn your aircraft to the left and up, and touching the right side of the screen will turn…

Rayman on iPhone

Funnily enough i'm heading over to a friend's place this evening to play some Rayman Origins so how fortuitous that we recieve the news that a title in the same fantastic art style is coming to iOS. While the title is probably to cash in on the Temple Run craze, i wonder if this is an endless runner, or a level by level platformer. Either way, this looks like it'll be a lot of fun (even if they don't know how to spell 'september'.…

App Wrap Up (Thursday Edition, 6th September 2012)

It's that time again, time for your favourite column (don't deny it), the app wrap up! As always i have some titles to show you that look interesting and could be fun to play based on their trailers. If you try any of them, please let us know what you think in the comments. Without further ado, let's start this! Roll the Ball 3D (Prince Kumar) This reminds me a lot of Boost 3D, only here you have a large life bar, and are controlling a sphere. Over time you speed up, and it looks like the controls are pretty tight. Could be a fun endless roller.[App Store Link] Nuclien (Springloaded) Aside from having a highly amusing trailer, Nuclien looks to combine reaction based gaming…
