Take a Holiday in Space on September 13th

Connect the stars, avoid the asteroids. Power-ups a plenty. Looks like it could be entertaining enough. See what we mean by taking a look at the trailer. Look for it to be hitting the App Store late next week.…


Avengers Initiative Review

Review Marvel Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Avengers Initiative Review

With all the recent buzz of Unreal powered titles, you’d be forgiven for thinking Avengers Initiative is packing this powerful engine beneath its gorgeous exterior. You’d be wrong, though it’s one of the few things the title hasn’t borrowed from the inspirational Infinity Blade. From the swipe-based combat to the level-grinding repetition, it’s Chair Entertainment’s classic in a nutshell, but it’s the small details that help it to stand on its…

Wild Blood Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Wild Blood Review

It may have taken some time for it to finally happen, but Gameloft have finally busted out their first Unreal Engine powered title for the App Store. For many people, such a thing is a minor concern, because - and let’s be honest - Gameloft titles have been far from ugly thus far. Wild Blood rides in on the heels of previous releases like Hero of Sparta, however instead of beating up Gods you’ll crack the skulls of various demons in this Arthurian-legend based beat’em…

Looking like an isometric Lost Vikings, this puzzle game involving robots is looking like a fun addition to the iPhone catalogue. Have a look at the trailer. Look for its release on September 13th…


Splice : Tree of Life iPad Review

Review Cipher Prime Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Splice : Tree of Life iPad Review

Much like Mother Nature, Splice : Tree of Life is unforgiving in its relentless brutality. You’re popped in to a universe almost without any concept of what you’re meant to do and while you can find some help, it won’t do you any good until you can understand it. Cipher Prime Studios capture this vicious elegance in their cell-splicing puzzler and you’ll need to ponder and experiment to make any headway. First and foremost, Splice is a beautifully presented gam…

Double Fine Breaks Out The 'Middle Manager of Justice'

News By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Double Fine Breaks Out The 'Middle Manager of Justice'

Double Fine Productions, along with the help of Dracogen, are spreading their wings taking flight in to the iOS arena, kicking things off with something familiar, but with a predictably quirky twist. Middle Manager of Justice tasks players with the uneviable role of managing a group of superheroes, taking care of all of the mundane tasks you usually never hear about in comic books. From maintaining the health and performance of individual heroes, to ensuring the cash-flow and facilities are sufficient enough to take on large tasks, you're the fine-line between the black and the red on the ledger. By all accounts it looks like we're in for a freemium title, but if the concept is u…


Luke The Liftboy Review

Review exozet By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 2 months ago
Luke The Liftboy Review

UPDATE: My apologies for the editing-gremlin in this video - hopefully the issue is resolved. Thanks to those who pointed it out ;) Being a lift boy must be a tedious enough job. Having to stand on your feet all day pressing buttons, and dealing with ear-worm inducing music, and the entire gamut of human shapes and sizes. Add to that a hotel that's busy during the football season, and the stress must just pile up exponentially. Well Exozet Games has taken this concept and made an arca…

The Golden Years: Way Out West Review

Review Alawar Entertainment, Inc By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 2 months ago
The Golden Years: Way Out West Review

Looking at the image of the Clint Eastwood-esque character with his bandanna, poncho, and cowboy hat on the app store, and seeing the game titled Way Out West, the last thing we were expecting was a resource management city building simulator. Told in flashback, this game is about building a town in the new frontier to harvest enough gold to pay off your husband's prison debt, with each level adding new elements to the gameplay, and having missions and time quotas to fill as well. It's…

Blast-A-Way Review

Review Illusion Labs By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Blast-A-Way Review

Illusion Labs are quickly working their way up my list of developers I can trust to provide fresh and compelling reasons to pick up an iOS device. Blast-A-Way is their latest release and you’re charged with the task of returning the young ‘boxies’ back to safety by blasting them free of the blocks they’re stuck inside. Those used to navigating touch-screen interfaces will appreciate the smart, casual simplicity of Blast-A-Way’s controls. Dragging one of t…

Super Mole Escape Review

Review [adult swim] By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 2 months ago
Super Mole Escape Review

One would think that if you were building a prison to house Moles, you would make certain that the floor was reinforced. Due to this oversight, we have Super Mole Escape, in which you take control of an incarcerated mole fleeing towards freedom, staying one step ahead of Johnny Law, and even worse, streams of molten lava. Along the way you collect gems (obviously to start your new life on the outside) and these ill gotten gains are used to upgrade your mole of choice (each with their o…

Qwak HD iPad Review

Review Mr Qwak Limited By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Qwak HD iPad Review

When we first saw Qwak on the iOS platform it was restricted to the tiny screens of the iPhones and iPods of the world. The lightning-sharp responsiveness of the controls helped to bring the Amiga classic back to life, but with so much going on, screen-space was definitely a concern... until now. Qwak HD makes the best of the iPad, making it a snap to keep track of the busy platforming action while also adding a two-player mode in to the proceedings. This last feature is pulled off fl…

App Wrap Up (Week Ending, 31st August 2012)

Howdy Ho Neighbourinos. It's the end of the week, the end of August, and time for another segment of the App Wrap Up! As always, the apps we feature here are here based on their trailers alone, as they look interesting enough to warrant potential further investigation. If you try anything out, be sure to tell us what you think in the comments. And now, on with the show! Rbots (a10.com) A disembodied robot head, magnets, and puzzle physics platforming. It touts single touch gameplay, but whether or not it's implemented well, well that remains to be seen.[App Store Link] Goal Defense (Dynamic Pixels) A sports themed tower defense title. As TD games go, it looks pretty standar…


Supermagical Review

Review Gala Pocket Inc. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 2 months ago
Supermagical Review

The Bust-a-Move game type has been quite popular on mobile devices, with plenty of titles adding their own spin on things. Supermagical takes the concept, and twists it horizontally, turning it into kind of a Plants Vs. Zombies playing field, but with the ability to recruit extra characters to defend against the encroaching multicolored hordes. As Nina the little witch, can you convince your evil sisters to abandon the path of wrong doing, to bolster your own forces? Perhaps you can, w…

The Curse Review

Review Toy Studio LLC By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 2 months ago
The Curse Review

Personally, if I’m tackling a series of puzzles that increase in difficulty with each successive victory, I’m not sure I want a sinister, yet pompous masked man taunting me and ridiculing my intellect. Still I guess it's my fault for tapping on that suspicious book in the first place, releasing this malevolent figure who might be dangerous if he wasn't so bent on observing my progress to entomb him back within the very pages he had just escaped from after who knows how long…
