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

Wrapup By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
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…

Friday News Wrap-Up 27 July 2012

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. As you can imagine, we were in a tight-pickle last week, but I stand by my choice to provide the review that was much needed at the time. As such, we have a glut of great news for this week, but we've picked some of the juicier ones just for you.This is the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 27th of July, 2012. Armed Heroes MMO - An odd response to asset theft claimsLets kick off the week with good, old drama. Armed Heroes, an upcoming MMO for the iOS platform has been looking utterly amazing of late, with features that put it closer to the…


MANOS - The Hands of Fate Review

Review FreakZone By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
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). The…

National Pride and a Piano Lesson

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!…

Knight K'west Slated for August Release

Apparently it's quite the quest to get knights across a moat. You control a paddle that bounces the valiant protectors of the realm across a chasm, collecting goodies and avoiding obstacles. It doesn't look like much, but we have been pleasantly surprised before, and it could be a fun time waster if nothing else, so look for this game out sometime in August.…


Crash Birds Islands Review

Review ANIMA Entertainment By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
Crash Birds Islands Review

Oh to slip the surly bonds of Earth and take to the skies above. Flying always holds a fascination for man due to the freedom and wonderment such ability bestows upon us. Crash Birds Islands lets us live out this dream vicariously through three selectable birds. Sadly aside from the flying mechanics, there's not much more at play here. You'll see what we mean. You launch your bird at the start of each stage through dragging back a giant slingshot and letting go. Once airborne, you fla…

Spy vs Spy Review

Spy vs Spy Review

Spy vs Spy is the kind of retro game that was always bound to have a sequel on the iOS platform in one form or another. First Star Software's 1984 classic formula has already been aped on the App Store, but thanks to Robots and Pencils, the original game in all its glory (as well as all new levels) are now available for the iPhone and iPad alike. You, as well as your rival spy, have entered an embassy and your goal is to escape with all of the items in the level, hindering or temporar…

Moops Review

Review Moops Games Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
Moops Review

Now I certainly can't be the only one who upon hearing this game's name thought back to a certain Seinfeld episode involving a boy in a bubble and a game of Trivial Pursuit. Funnily enough, it has nothing to do with that whatsoever. No, it seems the town of Moopville is under siege by pesky critters, and in a last ditch effort to rid themselves of this menace, have hired Flunk and Dunk, two exterminators to make sure the job gets done. What follows is an interesting blend of action adv…

Follow The Rabbit Review

Follow The Rabbit Review

Chilean developer GaMaGa have been kicking around since 2009, creating quirky games for browsers and more recently for mobile devices. Teaming up with Armor Games, the studio has re-purposed their old title 'Kermix' for touch screens and the end result is a game that is infuriatingly challenging, but oh so rewarding when you solve its puzzles. Instead of rolling a cube around the screen one block at a time, players now take control of a strange block-like monster that is chasing down…

Traffic Panic London Review

Review Neon Play By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
Traffic Panic London Review

Not having traveled yet to England, I do have to wonder how bad the traffic really is. I mean someone has gone and made a game where you control traffic light switches to create order and shuffle through as many cars as possible unharmed, but if a crash does happen, well then there's as much mayhem as your little tapping fingers and heart could ever desire. It's very rare that a game comes along where its lose state is inherently more enjoyable than the game itself, but that's exactly…

Puzzle birds Review

Review Smart Studio By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
Puzzle birds Review

In the wake of the success of a game like Angry Birds, there will be two camps of imitators when it comes to game releases. One camp will take the game mechanics and add their own twist on it, and followers of the app store knows that when a game hits it big, we see plenty of these for years to come. The second camp takes the presentation or general theme of a game and uses the similarity to its advantage. That's what Puzzle Birds does. It calls you over and says, “Psst, hey budd…

App Wrap up (Weekend Edition, 23rd July 2012)

Time for another App Wrap Up segment. What better way to start off the week than with checking some games that may or may not have some merit to them. As usual, we have not played these titles, but somthing about them struck us as potentially interesting so now we relay this information to you. If you do have a play of any of these, tell us what you think in the comments! Traintiles (Mobiteos) Kind of like Pipe Dream with train tracks. Not only do you have to guide the trains to the exit by manipulating the tracks, but you have to stop them ramming into each other as well. Also it's lucky that fast forward button is in the corner as once the puzzle is solved, the last thing a player…


Billy the Painter Review

Review Lipasto Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
Billy the Painter Review

Painting must have been a lot different in the 20s and 30s. If Billy the Painter has taught me anything, it's that painting is as easy as splotting down a dab of color, and watching it expand until the area you were painting has been covered completely. Of course a game element has to be introduced, so if the paint touches the edges and blends with the areas already painted, a life is lost. What? You're telling me that paint doesn't work that way? Ah well, it still makes for a simple a…
