SEQ Released This Friday

What is SEQ you ask? Perhaps it's better to watch the trailer and find out how this minimalist puzzle game works. It will be out this Friday and looks like a lot of fun for puzzle gamers.…


Super Knights Review

Super Knights Review

Frequenters of our site may have come to recognize my proclivity for puns. With that being said, based on name alone Knights of the Round Cable sounded like a game to look forward to playing. Three hundred and sixty degree swinging in order to collect gems and fling around stages like a knighted pinball? What's not to love? Will the relationship even last past the engagement? Let's stop with the horrid metaphors and find out! The game starts with your knight falling from the sky befor…

Dance Fever Review

Dance Fever Review

Rhythm games have always been at a disadvantage on the iPhone. While home consoles allow a player to live out their rock and roll fantasies with Rock Band, or dance up a storm with DDR, the swipe and tap inputs of the mobile device just can't compete with these unique control methods. That's not to say rhythm games haven't been enjoyable on the iPhone (or other handheld devices), it's just that you really need to design a simple and elegant system to allow the player to interact with t…

Astronaut Spacewalk Review

Astronaut Spacewalk Review

While fascination with space has waned in the popular consciousness for a while, who can say they've never fantasized about being an astronaut? Being able to either jump around on the moon, or simply to spacewalk amongst the stars, with our big blue planet orbiting within your vision. Astronaut Spacewalk fulfills this fantasy by immersing you visually and aurally in the suit of an astronaut as you use your propulsion system to move along satellites and space stations. It's an im…

Wrapup By Dave Flodine, 2 years ago
App Wrap Up (Midweek Edition, 18th June 2012)

It's been a week exactly since the last app wrap up, so let's have a look at what games out there look interesting. Remember, we don't know if these games are good or bad, we're just evaluating possible merit based on their trailers (and some might even warrant a full review from us in the future). Without further ado, let's take a look at the latest offerings. Extreme Flight (TechSoft Ventures) An air show flight arcade trainer? Fly through the hoops and collect balloons. Based on whether the control scheme is good or bad, this could be a bit of fun.. and hey, it's free![App Store Link] Pig me up (Mad Head Limited) What kind of fiend would steal a kid's pig? This game look…


Gamevil's Arel Wars 2 Slated for Release Sometime in the Next Month

News By Dave Flodine, 2 years ago
Gamevil's Arel Wars 2 Slated for Release Sometime in the Next Month

Arel Wars 2 is the sequel to Gamevil's original entry into the head-to-head castle defense genre. From the trailer we can see that the game contains their usual high visual and audio presentation, along with lots of upgrading, different units, and a continuation of the kingdom of Drusilla. It looks like a lot of fun. Gamevil's games can be pretty grind heavy though so we'll have to see if their upgrading mechanics have decent progression, or failing that, that the battle system is fun enough to hold our interest. No release date has been confirmed, but it should be out before the end of August.…


Free 2 Die Review

Review Everplay By Dave Flodine, 2 years ago
Free 2 Die Review

At what point does homage become a rip off? Fans of the multiplayer zombie shooter Left 4 Dead might see more than a few resemblances in Everplay Interactive's Left2Die, from the name itself, to the ideas behind the special zombies. Aside from that though it plays a lot more like Alive 4 Ever, yet in copying the design of that game, has failed to latch on to what makes a fun twin-stick shooter zombie survival experience (hmm, that might just be another genre name in the making here).…

Jar on a Bar Review

Jar on a Bar Review

It's sometimes really interesting what constitutes a genre on the app store. For instance, the physics puzzle genre has bloomed over the last couple years, and as such now has its own sub-genres, one of which Jar on a Bar is a part of. Let's call it the physics removal sub-genre. Like Finger Physics, the player has to remove objects from the screen in order to allow an item (in this case a fish stuck in its bowl) to safely descend to the welcoming ground below (so that the fish can hop…

Follow the Rabbit Hits the App Store This Week

The latest by Gamega and Armor Games, this puzzle game of chase and block pushing doesn't look like much on the surface from the visuals, but keep watching the trailer. As you get an idea of how the game is played, and what's in store throughout the levels, your interest might pick up a little bit. Mine sure did. This could be quite the fun little puzzle game. We'll know for sure when it hits the App Store on Thursday the 19th.…


Amazing Alex Review

Amazing Alex Review

If you're not already aware of it, this isn't the first time we've seen Amazing Alex on the App Store. Those who owned an iPad around mid last year should be aware of Casey's Contraptions (CC) by Snappy Touch and Mystery Coconut - its Rube Goldberg inspired physics gameplay wasn't new, but it was seriously addictive. The game was subsequently bought out by Rovio, of Angry Birds fame, touched up, and now we have Amazing Alex for the iPhone and iPad. In this iteration you play as Alex,…

Puzzle Adventure game Unmechanical Looks Promising

Slated to release sometime around the mid to end of August, Unmechanical looks like a game to keep your eyes on. Have a look at the trailer. Kind of having a Machinarium vibe, there's lots of puzzles to solve and an atmospheric world to explore. If the controls work out well, this looks like it could be a winner.…


Outwitters Review

Review One Man Left By Dave Flodine, 2 years ago
Outwitters Review

It's been a while since we've seen a release from One Man Left Studios. Years ago they released the fantastic Tilt to Live, and aside from updating that game with new modes and features, nothing else has surfaced... until now that is. Outwitters is a turn based strategy game that pits you against the rest of the internet in either 1v1 or 2v2 match-ups. You can play league games which pit you against players of the same skill level as you rank up; you can play against random opponents;…

Friday News Wrap-Up 13 July 2012

Considering how many people now own iPads just for gaming it was only fair for us to finally start providing footage from both iPad and iPhone releases of universal games. However we'd like to know how you feel about the changes - is there anything we could be doing to make things better for you? Keep in mind price tracking and scores are handled by our site.Let jump in to the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 13th of July, 2012. Ultima Forever - Cross Platform MMO currently in BetaHaving recently watched a complete retrospective on the Ultima PC RPG series, I feel the idea of having multiple people attempting to become the Avatar is more than a little weird, but then again Ultima Forev…

Jay & Silent Bob in: Too Fat To Fly Review

[This mini-review was featured in our Friday News Wrap-Up for the 13th of July, 2012] Ahh the good old sling shot endless game - we meet again. At least this time the theme is one I can appreciate - Jay & Silent Bob. Sporting an appearance that bears more than a passing similarity to the ones used in the animated series, the mischievous duo are trying to see how far Bob can fly with the assistance of a large rubber-band gun and some firecrackers. Set an angle, let go and tap the…

METAL SLUG 3 Review

METAL SLUG 3 Review

[Editor Update: It seems the iCade support is not 'official' - that is to say, without modifications, physical controls are not yet available for METAL SLUG 3. Hopefully this can be added in a later update.] If there's one game most responsible for causing me to waste my time at an arcade, it's probably NFL Blitz, but in a close runner-up is the METAL SLUG series in all of its incarnations. No matter which version or where I see it, I'll pump credits in to it. There have been many pre…
