Pettson's Inventions Review

Review Filimundus AB By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
Pettson's Inventions Review

Pettson and Findus are the stars of a series of successful children's books written and illustrated by Swedish author Sven Nordqvist. Pettson is a strange old farmer and Findus is his cat who walks on two legs and wears green-striped pants. In Pettson's Inventions, Findus wants to be able to fly, but they don't have the necessary parts to launch the frisky feline into the wild blue yonder, so Pettson asks the player if they will help find the parts by crafting other inventions to solve…

Trailer for Bug Princess 2: Black Label Released

Trailer for Bug Princess 2: Black Label Released

Fans of vertical shooters, and CAVE's previous iPhone and iPad offerings should be delighted to watch this trailer for the upcoming Bug Princess 2: Black Label. Aside from being full of bullets, bullets, and even more bullets, it looks like there's plenty of features that fans of these games should love (the ability to slow down time to recreate the arcade lag effects was a highlight personally). The greatest addition being a boss rush mode, featuring the bosses from this game, and the previous Bug Princess as well, where the player is graded on their performance and ranked online. The app store can always use more high quality action games, so i'm definitely looking forward to g…


This game gives 'button masher' a whole new meaning

News By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
This game gives 'button masher' a whole new meaning

Button mashers often have a bad reputation in games due to controller wear and the feeling that it's a cheap gimmick used to prolong gameplay because the developer couldn't think of anything more clever. It's rare though that not only would a game make button mashing look interesting, but that it would base its core mechanic around it. The Wunderlich brothers and their company RAWR! Interactive are releasing Count to a Billion, where you have ninety seconds to tap furiously on multiple multiplier pads in order to reach that elusive number. This trailer will explain it better than i could... The game is due for release in July, and should be a unique experience if nothing else. In…


Zombie Tsunami Review

Review Mobigame By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
Zombie Tsunami Review

We've talked a lot before about that if you're going to copy the formula of a successful game, you'd best have a firm grasp on what actually makes that game work. That way you have a solid foundation to build on, and hopefully you change enough to make the game your own. Zombie Carnival has high aspirations, trying to replicate the endless runner fun of Jetpack Joyride, and you might be happy to find out that they succeed, wringing some enjoyment out of the market over-saturation of zo…

Project 83113 Review

Review NCSOFT By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
Project 83113 Review

While we most often associate the 'bullet-hell' moniker with shoot'em-ups, platformers have had more than their share of crazy screen-exploding weapons being discharged at the player. When a main character has four arms and nearly infinite ammunition, you can bet things are about to get crazy and Project 83113 by Fabrication Games and NCsoft manages to deliver. You play as 'Belle', the great hope of the 'organics' in their fight against the 'machines'. Simply put, your job is to blow…

Ichi Review

Review Stolen Couch Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
Ichi Review

Often a physics puzzler can be too fiddly with its positioning and line drawing isn't always precise depending on how large your fingers are, but tapping, now there's a control that works without fail. 'ichi' by Stolen Couch Games follows the golden rule of puzzlers - keep it simple, make it challenging. With only a single tap you can change the layout of each of the puzzle-room's elements, either rotating blocks; phasing them in and out of existence; or even creating temporary barrie…

More info on Forma8

Having recieved a press release from Mixed Bag studios, we're happy to give you more information on Forma8. Here's the background of the story: "In a distant future, on an alien planet, a small exploration probe called forma.8 has a mission to accomplish: he needs to find something before it's too late. Your mission is vague, the planet is big, you got parted away from your companion by an accidental event, and you just know you have to delve deeper and deeper below the planet surface.  But not everything is like it seems. Ancient civilisations, great perils and dystopian visions await you..." Boasting an intuitive control scheme that plays to the strengths of the platform, th…

E3 Trailer for upcoming physics puzzler, Jumpster

G5 and Vogat are showing off their new physics puzzle game Jumpster this week with a brand new trailer. Take a look for yourself: While it looks to use the same physics flinging formula that so many games have adopted in the wake of the success of Angry Birds, the video showcases not only a vibrant alien world, but interesting mechanics like portals and UFOs. The game is slated for release in July so keep on the lookout for our review.…


Rock(s) Rider Review

Review ECA-Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
Rock(s) Rider Review

From time-trial racers to skill-based Trials HD-esque games, the App Store has surprisingly seen it all and in a number of guises. Rock(s) Rider by ECA-Games attempts to consolidate it all in to one title and the end result is a mixed one that doesn't live up to the same expectations of the inspirational games it wears its sleeves. This is no more evident than in the game's artistic presentation, mixing stylish and slick menus, and gorgeous industrial environments with signs that make…

Shoot The Zombirds Review

Review Infinite Dreams Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
Shoot The Zombirds Review

From creating pottery, to knocking down cans and stopping waves of red and blue jelly monsters, Infinite Dreams easily lives up to their name as they approach a wide variety of games and styles of play from casual to hardcore. Shoot The Zombirds acts as the nightmarish sequel to last year's Shoot The Birds and while much of the basic gameplay is in tact, small tweaks keep the game fresh and place an emphasis on careful, precise shots. In particular, Pumpkin Boy packs far fewer arrows…

First Look: Forma8

This is truly a first look. More information on this mobile adventure game should drop this week at E3 (and we have contacted the developer for additional info), but for now all we have are all the screenshots available over at their site. What strikes me is the evocative alien landscapes, that are quite reminiscent of Another World. If this game is drawing their main inspiration from that cinematic platforming classic, we should also expect a clean user interface, situational controls, and a load of atmosphere. We'll present you with more on this title as details are revealed to us. [Forma.8 Website - Forma.8 Facebook]…


KOTOMON Review

Review Monstars Inc. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
KOTOMON Review

Now you may be asking yourself, “What is a Kotomon”? No, it's not a Pokemon that's wearing a jacket, although that would be a good guess. All you need to know is that whatever it is, it contains cute monsters and plays like Katamari Damacy mixed up with some sort of pinball shooter. Each level has a number of monsters that need to be herded towards the gated goal. To help them along, you can pick them up, and tap the screen to fling them out onto the world like a lifeless…

Score! Classic Goals Review

Review First Touch By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
Score! Classic Goals Review

Even those of you who aren't fans of the closest thing to a world sport we have in football (or soccer as it is also known), should be able to admit the most exciting part of the game is the goals. Now of course this is partly due to them being such a rarity, but it's also due to the combination of skill, strategy, and just the right dash of luck for everything to come together and wow the crowds. Score! Classic Goals is a football game that focuses on recreating the most famous goals…
