Freeze! Review

Review Andreas von Lepel By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
Freeze! Review

There haven't been too many, but there's something enjoyable about games that stick you in small curved level, and ask you to use the iPhone's tilt controls and the power of physics to get the character you control to safety. Freeze is the latest of these, and it comes to us wrapped in a 50s monster movie shell. It certainly adds an amount of mood and character to the game, but the big question is of course, how does it play? The answer to that questions is. “adequately”.…

Endless Road Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
Endless Road Review

Maybe it's jaded memory talking, but there's really not many good things that come to mind when talking about the arcade driving classic Outrun. Perhaps the aspect that stands out the most though is the decision making process in which path you took each leg of the race. While this had no real bearing on the gameplay, a change of environment is always a welcome addition in any game, and it is this exact mechanic that resurfaces in Endless Road... though any other comparisons to Outrun…

Nanomites

Ok, so it's not the first use of this mechanic, and it won't be the last, but i think using touch gestures to fence off these creatures is pretty neat. It's similar to the game Qix, but you get to separate expressive nano creatures. Take a look at the trailer. The game is being released on December 12th.…


Shardlands Review

Review Breach Entertainment Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
Shardlands Review

A lot of games start you out with either a splash page of introductory context or a movie to set up the scene. Shardlands throws you right into the thick of it straight away. Your character Dawn wakes up in a strange alien world. Where is she? How did she get there? These are pertinent questions, but surprisingly not all that pressing. This game is of a slower pace, where exploration and evasion are the order of the day. The big questions can wait. And to explore this foreign landscap…

Pong®World Review

Review Atari By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Pong®World Review

There's a small backstory to Pong World by Atari and zGames. To celebrate the game's 40h anniversary, Atari sought out Indie developers to update the classic arcade game, and the end result is a fantastic concept that gives the game a shufflepuck-like spin by giving the player direct control over the action. However a great idea can only take you so far when it's smothered by a relentless freemium model of almost endless monotonous gameplay, and design decisions that hamper the gamepl…

Modern Combat 4 arrives on Thursday

Modern Combat 4 arrives on Thursday

The next installment in Gameloft's Call of Duty inspired Modern Combat series, subtitled Zero Hour, will be dramatically blasting its way onto the App Store on Thursday. Android gamers will have to wait a little longer to get their hands on the game, with Gameloft stating that the game should be available "shortly after" on the Google powered devices. Although Gameloft's track record on Android ports means not holding your breath for it is advisable. There's no word on a specific price yet, but Gameloft has revealed that the game will be a premium release, so something around $4.99 shouldn't be too far off the mark. With a strong single player campaign, new multiplayer modes, and some of…

Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders Review

Storm Raiders by Atypical Games and Revo Solutions has been given a huge visual overhaul, giving the Sky Gamblers series exactly what it needed to remain the best in show. Considering previous titles had almost perfected flight simulator gameplay for the iOS platform, pairing the game up with famous locations, rendered in gorgeous detail and polished with high resolution textures makes this a must-have all on is own. However, leaving the review there would skip over important details,…

Angry Birds Seasons gets advent calendar updates

Angry Birds Seasons gets advent calendar updates

Rovio has released a new update to Angry Birds Seasons that adds a wintry theme to the bird flinging, physics based destruction puzzler. There are twenty five new levels that unlock every day from now until Christmas, as well as three secret levels that apparently offer specil wintry treats. The new update also introduces the ice element, which you can expect to be both slippy and slidy, and add all sorts of new mayhem to the already pretty madcap game. The update, which pushes the game up to version 3.10, is available from the App Store right now for free. So if you fancy some Christmas themed bird on pig action, we'd suggest grabbing it as soon as possible.…


Zenonia 5 hits Android

Zenonia 5 hits Android

Gamevil has released the next installment of its action RPG series, Zenonia, onto the Google Play Store. And that means that an iOS version shouldn't be too far behind. Subtitled Wheel of Destiny, the game is set long after the events of the fourth title in the series, and sees the world being overrun with monsters yet again. Cue some Zelda inspired top-down hacking and slashing as you try and restore order to once peaceful lands by killing everything that looks a bit like it might be about to do something bad. By the looks of the trailer, which you can check out for yourself below, it also looks like Gamevil has squashed a card battler into the game as well. Throw in PvP, four new classe…

The Bowling Dead Review

The Bowling Dead Review

[This title is featured as the Mini-Review for the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 30th of November, 2012] It's a thin premise, but The Bowling Dead by Slant Six Games and Activision places you in the unusual position of a zombie apocalypse survivor who discovers a bowling ball that seems to be the only thing that can stop them. Obviously the first part isn't new, but the second part results in a strangely addictive title. It's a sort of mash up between Full Fat's Zombie Flick and a basi…

3volution - A Primordial Soup Challenge Review

Review ZAKI By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 12 months ago
3volution - A Primordial Soup Challenge Review

Why is the E in evolution turned around into a 3 for the sake of this title? Well because the whole concept of primordial evolution is apparently aided by three helpers named Nunstuck, Git, and Slotermeyer. 3Volution has you evolving through life forms in what amounts to sort of a high speed soccer game, complete with power-ups and obstacles creating an experience that can be unfair and over before you know it, but set up so that you instantly press retry to give the whole affair anoth…
