True Skate Review

Review True Axis By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
True Skate Review

Tony Hawk Pro Skating allowed me to vicariously live out my enjoyment of skateboarding without the need to go outside and get hot and sweaty during the Summer months. However, Tony Hawk and its ilk had no problem with throwing reality out the window. This may make for a good game, but there's nothing wrong with wanting to flex your skills by trying your hand at something challenging; something realistic. True Skate by True Axis adds itself to the relatively short list of games that se…

Infinity Blade Dungeons delayed until next year

Infinity Blade Dungeons delayed until next year

If you've been looking forward to some Infinity Blade style dungeon crawling this year, then we've got bad news for you. According to AllThingsD Epic and Impossible Studio's Diablo aping hack and slasher has been put back until 2013. “Ever since the talented team at Impossible Studios got their hands on Infinity Blade: Dungeons, they’ve been busy adding their great ideas to the game,” spokesman Wes Phillips told the website. “There was also the matter of getting the Impossible Studios team up and running with desks, chairs, staplers and computers. The logistics of a new studio and implementing all these great ideas required a little extra time, so Infinity Blade:…


Sonic Jump leaping on to the App Store

Sonic Jump leaping on to the App Store

Sega is set to release its first smartphone-only Sonic title, Sonic Jump, which sees you leading the blue hedgehog through a variety of vertical levels. The game plays a lot like Doodle Jump, with the blue speedster leaping whenever he touches a platform and tilts of your device controlling the direction of his jumps. There are some Sonic-y twists thrown in too, with power ups that give you boosts that are going to be familiar to anyone who's played a Sonic game before, and boss battles against the evil Dr. Eggman. Sonic Jump should be available from the App Store pretty darn soon, and it'll set you back $1.99.…


Fantasy Conflict Review

Review Gaijin Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
Fantasy Conflict Review

When Gainjin Entertainment first approached the well-established Galcon Labs style of RTS-come-castle-defense gameplay, they managed to create something sharp in its execution. With its semi-realistic theme, Modern Conflict required fast reflexes and a fast mind to survive its brutal challenges. The studio is back with something slightly less realistic in Fantasy Conflict, and while there's a distinct feeling of deja vu, a lot of effort has gone in to establishing deeper mechanics for…

Carmageddon Review

Review Stainless Games Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
Carmageddon Review

When you have cars, a race-track and checkpoints, your first assumption is generally that the game you're playing is a racer. If we were to forget about Carmageddon's colorful history, you'd likely approach the game like any other, but you'd be playing it wrong. See, it's not that you can't race to the finish line, but rather that it's not the most profitable, be it for your in-game piggy bank or for your more intangible emotional piggy bank. Some days you just want to tear something a…

If Gaming is a meal, is this Finger Food?

If Gaming is a meal, is this Finger Food?

Ok, i admit that title was seriously lame, but you know what isn't? The look of the game this article is covering! Full recovery! Finger Tied is an iPad only game that's coming out this Thursday. It will cost $2.99 and is a game that be played by oneself or with others in a party environment. It's kind of a finger dexterity puzzler. What do I mean by that? Well the trailer more than explains.…


Carmageddon Free For First 24 Hours

Carmageddon Free For First 24 Hours

While we finish up our review of Carmageddon, do yourself a favor and grab a copy for free right now! (Some regions may not yet be active - just be patient as it rolls out around the globe) You can thank the wonderful contributors over at the Carmageddon: Reincarnation Kickstarter page for not only bringing back to life one of the 90's craziest car-racing-come-bloodsport titles, but also helping to fund the iOS release we have today. Personally I'm having a hard time pulling off the rose-tinted glasses, what with having spent an ungodly amount of time enjoying the game by myself and with friends via multiplayer. If anything, it's a good indicator that gamers from the 90s will definitely wa…

Well... I'm Intrigued

About Love, Hate, and the Other Ones is looking to be an interesting puzzle platformer with a lot of charm. It releases on October 23rd, and even after watching the trailer, I'm not too sure what to make of it, but as the heading of this piece says, I am most certainly intrigued. .…

Sometimes it's not so hip to be a Square

Especially when the name of the game is Square Planet. Pending Apple approval, this will be out on October 19th, and is an artistically beautiful looking 2.5D platformer. Let's hope the gameplay matches up. Have a look at the trailer.…


Funky Smugglers Review

Review 11 bit studios s.a. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
Funky Smugglers Review

Imagine you have to rush a bunch of Brazil-bound Coconut Jugglers through a terminal and on to their plane, only to find that they're harboring dozens of contraband items on their body. You'd be upset too, but thankfully in Funky Smugglers you can pluck those items out of their 'hiding spots' without a moment's hesitation, thwarting the efforts of those who would seek to breech the security of the airport. You're given 'three' attempts at failing before your game is over in Funky Smug…

Catch-22 Review

Review Mango Down! By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
Catch-22 Review

It's very rarely the name of a game captures the entire spirit of the experience, but every now and then things work out that way. A catch 22 for those not in the know is kind of a 'damned if you do, damned if you don't' situation, where taking one course of action might have dire consequences, but then the other option really doesn't put you in that much better a position. Interesting that such a nerve wracking scenario translates to what can be described as a zen gaming experience.…

100 day game Super-Fluid hits the App Store

100 day game Super-Fluid hits the App Store

Super-Fluid is the result of one hundred days of hard work. Created as part of Virgin Media's 100 Day challenge, the game is a side scrolling puzzler. The game was built by a team of four graduate developers from the University of Essex in the UK, who after forming Surface Tension Studios were propelled into a heady century of developing, testing, and getting advice from some of the best in the business. "We’ve had a fantastic time and would like to thank Virgin Media for giving us this amazing opportunity." said Dave Pearson from Surface Tension in a press release. "We've always wanted to work in the games industry and now thanks to this competition it's really happening. We&rsqu…


Polara Review

Polara Review

We've seen men that can switch gravity almost on a whim; all manner of traps and obstacles; and that unmistakable feeling of dread as things spiral out of control despite the utter simplicity of the controls you're handed. Polara by Hope This Game Works is the buffet-feast of endless runners, packing together ideas we've seen before, but somehow managing to give them all a fresh twist thanks to a color-switching mechanic. Lara is in the unenviable position of having to escape from a h…

Sword of Fargoal 2 gets Kickstarted

Sword of Fargoal 2 gets Kickstarted

The best success stories are always the ones that skirt dangerously close to failure. So it was with Sword of Fargoal 2's Kickstarter adventure, which saw the retro Rogue-like scrape past its funding amount with seconds to spare. The game is a true sequel to a C64 dungeon crawler that came out more than a quarter of a century ago and challenged you to raid randomly generated dungeons in order to discover and reclaim the titular sword. This new polished version will feature new monsters, new dungeons, new heroes - pretty much new everything really, while drawing on the legacy of the original. If you fancy trying out some old school dungeon crawling action and you can't wait for Fargoal 2,…
