Herd Herd Herd™ Deluxe Review

Review 2K By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Herd Herd Herd™ Deluxe Review

Herd Herd Herd Deluxe is one of those games that aims to bridge the gap between young gamers and adults alike thanks to its smooth difficulty curve that plateaus at a high level. No punches are pulled, so you'll need to get your tap and drag on to help save the somewhat docile farm animals in your care. As mentioned, things ramp up quite slowly, and indeed it may feel like the game never really takes off as it drills new skills in to you with each stage, only to provide one or two gen…

Minigore 2: Zombies Review

Review Mountain Sheep By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Minigore 2: Zombies Review

Minigore could easily be considered one of the staple titles of the iOS platform - despite its (now) relatively mundane concept of throwing hordes of enemies at you while you control the hero with a twin-stick setup, its execution and presentation remained the high-water mark for a long time. Mountain Sheep's sequel, Minigore 2: Zombies, returns without pomp or ceremony. As soon as you load up you're dumped straight in to the first stage and you can choose to use the auto-aim system o…

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition iPad Review

Review Overhaul Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition iPad Review

Some of you out there may be old enough to remember purchasing Baldur's Gate when it first hit the PC in 1998. It came with many goodies, not the least of which was a large vertical sleeve to hold the five CDs required to play the game. Later improvements in compression and technology made it less unwieldy, but the original embodied the content held within - an epic tale of adventure based on the 2nd Edition of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons rules. It was bold and it was brutal, but b…

Tiles Aren't the only thing Dropping on December 12th

Tiles Aren't the only thing Dropping on December 12th

The game Tile Drop is as well! Wit! Anyways, watching the trailer of this puzzle game ultimately confused me... but in a really good way. Have a look to see what I mean... It's a free app, but for those wishing to get a taste before the release, the developer Daniel Wood has made two versions of the game available to play now. The easy version can be found here, while what he called the Derek version (which is a more advanced set of puzzles), can be found here.…


Into the Dead Review

Into the Dead Review

Oh look, another zombie apocalypse game. What? It's an endless runner as well, that has a store to upgrade your chances of survival and the length of the game? Gee, we haven't seen anything like this before, he said sarcastically. With all this being the case, Into the Dead does something astonishing. It offers a breathtakingly gorgeous engaging gaming experience. Load the game up, and you'll start right near a crashed helicopter. Turning around, there's nothing but fields and the und…

Space Hulk headed to iOS devices next year

Space Hulk headed to iOS devices next year

Developer Full Control and Games Workshop have announced that an iOS version of the classic space-dungeon crawling board game Space Hulk is set to arrive on iOS devices in the new year. Featuring a 12 stage single player or cooperative campaign based around the Sin of Damnation Hulk from the thrid edition of the game, Space Hulk promises a turn based, tactical adventure like no other. A cross platform multiplayer mode lets you compete against friends in recreations of the classic Genestealers versus Terminators scraps of the original board game. “Since playing the board game decades ago I have always wanted to recreate this slice of Warhammer 40,000 as a computer game. Now we can fi…


Team Awesome Review

Review Ezone.com By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
Team Awesome Review

A mysterious meteor has crashed into the planet, spraying forth red and blue crystals everywhere. Four unsuspecting wage slaves have been affected by these crystals, granting them super powers and the ability to form a group called Team Awesome. As impressive as that sounds, the rest of the experience is grinding through repetitive levels to gain enough coins to unlock the next level, only to do the whole thing all over again. But at least the controls are based around one touch gamep…

Sky Hero™ Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
Sky Hero™ Review

Your fortress is under attack, a message needs to be relayed to headquarters. What is a brave soldier to do? Why it is his prerogative, nay his duty, to leap from the tower and free fall to victory, avoiding enemy bombardment on the way down. Sky Hero puts you in the floppy pants of such a soldier. Your plummet is closely being followed by a menacing fire beast as well as his minions, which consist of barrels, cannons, and hacksaw carrying birdies. Tilting is the name of the game as y…

App Wrap Up (Weekend Edition, 10th December 2012)

Wrapup By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
App Wrap Up (Weekend Edition, 10th December 2012)

Hey Hey readers, and welcome to another installment of the App Wrap Up! It's been a week or two since last we met, and I have another collection of interesting games that you may have missed that look decent based solely on their trailers. Let's get started! Linked Together (Idol Minds LLC) The expansion of the match-3 genre into giant linked chains for massive points is not a new concept, so what is it about this trailer that resonates? Is it the 'in your face' presentation, or is it the emphasis on multiplayer and a slew of intesting power ups? Whatever the reason, this does look like a lot of fun.[App Store Link] Jellboy (CORVUS GAMES) You've seen those youtube videos abou…


Sphoxie Review

Review Olivier Archer By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
Sphoxie Review

While the iPhone has created a resurgence of 2D platforming titles, the 3D platformer has been kind of neglected. Perhaps it's because the added challenge of creating a camera and a three dimensional space worth exploring is a daunting task, but regardless, it makes it so that when a 3D platformer is released, it's almost a novelty. Sphoxie is such a platformer. You play the titular named character who is a sort of blue sphere who gets sucked into a portal and trapped in a hostile worl…

Square Enix announces Final Fantasy IV for iOS

Square Enix announces Final Fantasy IV for iOS

Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy IV is heading to iOS devices on the 20th of December. This is the 3D, enhanced version released on the Nintendo DS in 2008 though, rather than the SNES original. The game tells the story of Cecil, a Dark Knight determined to thwart the evil schemes of a sorcerer called Golbez, who plans to destroy the world using a bunch of crystals. It's expected the game will go on sale for somewhere around $20, which puts it in line with Square's aggressive App Store pricing scheme. To celebrate the forthcoming release, and the fact it's Christmas soon, Square has put some of its other iOS titles on sale, with Final Fantasies I through III all getting discou…


Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Review

Review Rockstar Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Review

For those of you out there who are fans of Vice City and used to the quirks of iOS gaming (that is to say, touch-based gaming controls) then I can get you in and out of this review fairly quickly: 'It's everything you loved about the original, but with less adequate - though still useable - controls'. Also it's gorgeous.' For everyone else, lets dig a little deeper. Rockstar Games' second third-person foray in their Grand Theft Auto series is still regarded an all-time classic, even…

Vergence Fated to Appear in App Store

Vergence Fated to Appear in App Store

You don't see too many Metroidvania games on the App Store. Perhaps its that mobile gaming doesn't lend itself to the genre, or that it's hard to get the controls right, but it's good see that there are some out there. Well I'm assuming Vergence: Will of Fate is a Metroidvania game from the description and the trailer. If not, it still looks visually interesting as a platformer, and promises lots of rooms to visit and upgrades to acquire. Here's the trailer. The game is released on December 9th.…
