Button Brigade iPad Review

Review Axis Sivitz By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 12 months ago
Button Brigade iPad Review

In an action adventure game, coming across buttons to open up doorways and other passages to make your way around the stage is a regular occurrence. But what of these poor buttons? What do they think of their throw-away existence? Button Brigade answers that question, if only as a side note, thanks to a mechanical snake and a whole host of buttons that can manipulate the laboratory you're trapped in. By tapping on the screen you can achieve one of two things, either moving your 'snake…

Synesthetic Review

Review Alex Dantis By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 12 months ago
Synesthetic Review

Since music can muster such a visceral reaction in us of like and dislike, when a game comes along that allows us to interact with music, it is usually received favorably. If it's a game like Guitar Hero which has a set track list, the game can be lauded or decried based on if the list resonates with fans of those songs, but games like Audiosurf and Synesthetic, which allow the player to use their own music collection favor much better, also because these games are tied to playable ver…

Mad Cows Review

Review Everplay By Dave Flodine, 2 years ago
Mad Cows Review

So we've had Angry Birds, now we have Mad Cows. What's next? Perturbed Kangaroos? Confused Marmosets? Well let's stop giving designers ideas and delve into a pretty blatant Angry Birds clone. Oh yes there are some differences, including the addition of a multiplayer component, but this is the type of game you've seen and played many times before. You have six animals to choose from. Each have their own levels, and each have a special ability. It's interesting because instead of having…

Retro Graphics of a Different Sort

This Thursday, Kid Vector releases in the App Store. A 2d platformer envoking retro art and music, but the one difference is that while most retro games go for pixel art, this one has vectors! Doesn't look like much is new gameplay wise, but as long as the controls are solid, it should satsify the itch of platforming fans.…

Robot may be Found in the Middle of August

Lost Robot is in the words of its creator Benjamin Hald, "a mixture of arcade, action, and puzzle games". From the trailer we see we need to get the robot and his uni-motorcycle to the exit by manipulating objects in the level. Here's the trailer. Set for release sometime in mid-August, this looks like it could be fun.[LowLineLab Site]…

10000000 Review

What is it about the match-three concept that continues to be so addictive? For some it's the light puzzle aspect, for others its the way in which simple actions can result in a cascade of combos that feel like winning on a poker machine. It may seem strange to pair such gameplay with RPG mechanics, but it's an already long proven combination, thanks in-part to the way in which matching tiles manages to substitute for the monotonous grinding of turn-based battle. 10000000 by EightyEig…

Walking Dead: The Game Review

Walking Dead: The Game Review

For those who have been waiting for Telltale Games' iOS version of The Walking Dead, the wait was not entirely in vain. I could lie and say that nothing has been lost in the translation from console/PC to handheld device, but it would be a lie, though its ultimate impact on the story and experience is minimal, making it a must-try adventure game. Although based on the comic franchise, the story follows Lee - a convicted killer who is given a second chance after surviving a 'walker' at…

App Wrap Up (Week ending June 27th, 2012)

App Wrap Up (Week ending June 27th, 2012)

Phew, i hope you have some endurance dear readers and this installment of the App Wrap Up is gonna be a long one. Lots of interesting games to take a look at. As always i wish to remind our readers that we don't know how well these games play. The trailers make them look potentially interesting and it's up to you to follow your own judgement if you see something that catches your eye. Without further ado... Static Quest: The Delivery (Cookiebit) Now the trailer here doesn't really show off too much, but there's a pleasant enough pixel art style and what looks to be an upgrade system. Let's just hope that Static Quest doesn't refer to just standing in the one place and attacking inco…

As things begin to stabilize around the office, I find myself relaxed and glad I can finally take up the reins on the Friday News Wrap-Up once again.

MANOS - The Hands of Fate Review

MANOS - The Hands of Fate Review

[This review was featured as the Mini-review for the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 27th of July, 2012] Not that I'm going to recommend watching Manos: The Hands of Fate, but if you're a fan of comedy commentary you should watch MST3K's cult-classic episode that covers this atrocious film. Of course they used a somewhat imperfect copy of the film and fans of bad cinema can find a color version in all of its glory floating around the Internet (or even the App Store if you so desire).

National Pride and a Piano Lesson

With the Olympic Games quickly approaching, Joytunes is releasing Piano Summer Games this week, which allows players from all over the world to compete via leaderboards on how well they can play their country's national anthem on piano. You can use either a real piano or the touch keys of the program itself. The trailer should shed some light on things. Looks like some fun if nothing else, and anything that encourages people to learn to play any form of music always gets a thumbs up from me!…
