Falling...and Falling

Falling...and Falling

While a lot of games based on vertical movement have you jumping ever highwards, Freedom Fall has decided to travel in the other direction. Being released on the App Store sometime in mid-November, this gameplay and art style look good enough to make this an enjoyable experience. Of course looks can be decieving, but we'll wait till it's out to pass judgement. Here's the trailer.…

Borderlands set to make its iOS debut

According to a page from the digital strategy guide for Borderlands 2 dug up by IGN, It looks like 2K's post apocalyptic RPG/FPS hybrid is set to make its bow on mobile devices. Borderlands Legends takes place in the same rich universe as its console brethren, and features Roland, Lilith, Mordecai, and Brick - the stars of the original Borderlands - in a wave based battle built specifically for iOS devices. The game, which sees you leading your favourite character in a series of randomised missions, levelling them up and gaining powers as you do, is set to see the light of day sometime this month, although no firm release date has been given just yet. Still, it's good to see another pop…


Sonic Jump™ Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Sonic Jump™ Review

Doodle Jump remains a stalwart casual-gaming superhero for the iOS platform, elegantly combining dead-simple controls unique to the iPhone with an addictive challenge that spurs you on to keep reaching higher. Sonic Jump by SEGA attempts to repackage the whole platforming experience of its bigger platformers in to a basic jumper, and surprisingly, it fits perfectly. Some may think this sounds odd, especially as the original titles involved jumping, but also a LOT of running too - so h…

Super Falling Fred Review

Review Dedalord S.R.L. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Super Falling Fred Review

Dedalord is back again, this time with a free-to-play update to Falling Fred. The 'super' isn't without its merit either as players get to combine a whole host of new power-ups to survive all-new deadly depths. Oh, and Fred isn't alone this time - he gets to share his pain with a range of new characters too. All you need to do to score it large is to avoid hazards in the vertical shaft Fred and company are falling down - it sounds easy, and thanks to the auto-calibrated tilt controls…

GREE releases new game targetting the "mid-core"

GREE has released a new monster nabbing title that it hopes is going to bridge the gap between the hardcore and the casual. So there's epic adventure and battles, alongside world building and house keeping tasks. Called Monster Quest, the game is all about capturing 400 different types of beast, then building up your own personal army of monstrous servants. There's a PVP mode as well that allows you to pit your army against another player's, battling it out to see whose collection of hideous creatures is the strongest. “From casual to mid-core games, our mission is to continuously expand our content offering to provide deeply entertaining experiences to all types of mobile gamers…


Hands On Preview For Punch Quest

Hands On Preview For Punch Quest

With Dave catching up on work and releases flying at me left and right the usual Friday Wrap-Up has been delayed, but fear not for I have something just as good - a hands-on preview! Lets not beat around the bush here, Punch Quest from Rocketcat Games owes much of its DNA to that of Jetpack Joyride from Halfbrick Studios. That said, what's on offer is a distinctly different beast even if it does fall in to the rather broad 'auto-runner' category that has been a near constant on the App Store for a long time. However, Punch Quest 'gets it'. From the instant you load up and hit start the game starts blaring at you with colorful explosions everywhere; enemies flying left and right a…


A Wonderland Story HD iPad Review

Review Josh Presseisen By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
A Wonderland Story HD iPad Review

It's all well-and-good that Alice gets a story about her adventures in Wonderland, but what of the White Rabbit? It's bad enough that he's late for his meeting, but having a bunny obsessed girl chasing after him isn't helping things along either, especially considering the wonky terrain. A Wonderland Story by Forest Moon Games and Alchemy Games has you helping the rabbit along his way by moving the ground so he can keep walking forward, hopefully avoiding its many inhabitants in the pr…

True Skate Review

Review True Axis By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months 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

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

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, 2 months 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, 2 months 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?

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.…
