Pocket RPG iPhone Edition Review

Review Crescent Moon Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
Pocket RPG iPhone Edition Review

While there are those who wish for nothing more than a juicy RPG that compels them to spend hours mastering skills or defeating labyrinthine dungeons, the iPhone and iPod Touch are arguably not well suited for such epic tales. This hasn't stopped developers from making or fans from loving attempts at bringing classic RPG features to the App Store, but when a developer like Crescent Moon Games thinks outside the box to try something new I have to admit I get a little excited. Pocket RP…

Frogger Decades Review

Frogger Decades Review

Updates of a classic arcade game can be a tricky balancing act. You're trying to entice fans of the original so the gameplay needs to be very similar, yet to bring in new fans, it has to be different enough to warrant a look. Frogger Decades comes very close to this balance but ultimately falls a bit short. The game is based around the jumping mechanic which is handled by swiping on the right side of the screen. Want to jump in a certain direction, just swipe there and Frogger will ho…

Muffin Knight Review

Review Angry Mob Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
Muffin Knight Review

Editors Note (Nov 9, 2011): This update has been a long time coming, though some may feel it should have retained this score from the get-go. Unfortunately the reviewer had completely overlooked Muffin Knight's inspirations, resulting in a retraction and in a first, a minor score change that bumped it from a 5 to a 4. As each update adds to the roster of champions and arenas to battle in, Muffin Knight steps further and further away from its roots to forge a path on its own and d…

Reckless Getaway Drops Down A Gear To 99c For Labor Day Weekend

Reckless Getaway Drops Down A Gear To 99c For Labor Day Weekend

Darn those jammy Yanks. While the rest of the world toils away at work this Monday in a deceptively cold office, the smelly cockpit of an articulated lorry, or down a dangerous mine, those American dudes can enjoy the mother of all lie-ins. Perhaps to console we unfortunate souls in the UK , Australia, and beyond during Labor Day Weekend, Reckless Getaway developers Polarbit have driven down the cost of their wacky iPhone racing sim. For a limited time, Reckless Getaway's $2.99 virtual price tag has been tossed into the garbage bin and replaced by a 99c sticker. As you'd probably expect given its moniker, Reckless Getaway incorporates crazy car chases, unrelenting po-po, insane jumps, a…

Tiger Style Show Off Screenshots For Upcoming iPhone Sci-Fi Side-Scroller

Tiger Style Show Off Screenshots For Upcoming iPhone Sci-Fi Side-Scroller

The development team behind 5* adventure / puzzle game Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor have released a bunch of screenshots for their upcoming sci-fi side-scroller Lost Mars. Now, we don't much about the game - hardly anything, in fact - so it's a good job that Tiger Style are set to showcase their new title this Sunday at the Juegos Rancheros festival in Austin, Texas. Prety much the only thing that we do know is that the game is "one part METROID, one part 1970s-era sci-fi film, and one part…gardening?!" That could mean absolutely anything, but it does sound intriguing. Feast your eyes on the screenies below, folks.…

Team17 Announce Worms Crazy Golf For iPhone

SPOILER ALERT! This isn't a joke... What do you get if you cross one of my all-time favourite turn-based trajectory games with my third favourite sport? Worms Crazy Golf on iPhone, that's what. UK-based developers Team17 are, of course, the brains behind the long-running Worms series, and they recently announced that their famous band of garden invertebrates will be putting for glory later this year. Players will have to execute skilful chip shots and precision putts across three madcap 18-hole courses, while overcoming obstacles like castles that teleport balls and comedy bats. Old, familiar faces from the Worms universe will make an appearance in Worms Crazy Golf, including the sheep,…

DrawRace 2 Review

Review Ubisoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
DrawRace 2 Review

The last time we saw RedLynx on the App Store was after their release of 1000 Heroz, an ambitious time-trial style platformer with daily unlockables (amounting to a crazy amount of levels if you happen to jump on board right now). Drawrace 2 marks the return of RedLynx's signature line-drawing title under the banner of Chillingo with just about every aspect of the game receiving a turbo-boost injection of shiny features. Just like some finely tweaked race-car, the basic engine of simp…

Jetpack Joyride Review

Review Halfbrick Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
Jetpack Joyride Review

There were two particularly interesting results that came of Brisbane-based developer Halfbrick studios release of Monster Dash (a fun, but basic endless runner) last year. Firstly it was the introduction of Barry Steakfries - a rebel without a cause and all-around monster slaying badass. Secondly, a temporary power-up allowed you to soar through the sky on the wings of a gatling-gun jetpack - if that doesn't evoke a Tim the "Toolman" Taylor style series of grunts, I don't know what wi…

Madden NFL 12 Shimmies Into iPhone End Zone, Sports A $6.99 Price Tag

Madden NFL 12 Shimmies Into iPhone End Zone, Sports A $6.99 Price Tag

American-football fans, listen up: Madden NFL 12 has just landed on the App Store, and it's carrying a $6.99 price tag. Now, EA say that it's the "most authentic NFL game franchise on Earth" and "better than ever", but we have a sneaking suspicion that they may be a little bit biased. So, we're just going to stick to the facts. Madden NFL 12 beefs up the roster, packing in 2,500 NFL players and 32 teams. They're all real, too. Leaderboards and achievements also make the cut, thanks to EA's new Origin online service. Aside from that, it's not a radical upgrade, but if your life ambition is to buy a game called 'Madden NFL 12' for iPhone, this may just be the best $6.99 you ever spend! A…


Cave Mice Review

Review Appicus By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 months ago
Cave Mice Review

For those of you who have played the NES game Battletoads, remember level 2, when you were endlessly descending down that tunnel, trying your hardest to avoid objects, destroy enemies, and not  bell whack your friend? Well Cave Mice is a little like that, minus the punching enemies and turning into bells. OK, so it's nothing like that, but the core idea is the same. As a family of mice who have had their cheese pile fall deep into the Earth, it's up to Theseus Tilsit to lower hims…

Puddle Puzzles Review

Review ChaosTrend Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 months ago
Puddle Puzzles Review

The cute purple blobby thing-a-ma-jig named Puddles finds herself in a series of lab experiments. What they are trying to test is beyond me but the point is that as the player you need to guide Puddles through a series of rooms, eating gems, floating on water, avoiding spikes, and reaching the portal. The game has two methods of leading Puddles to safety. On land, rotating the iPhone will roll Puddles in that direction or make her fall to a new surface. Rotating also changes the water…

Infinity Field Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 months ago
Infinity Field Review

Ever since the success of Geometry Wars, the twin stick shooter has become a staple of the iPhone's game library. Many games have tried to capture the same feeling of fun and visual excitement, and even Geometry Wars itself got released with a great reception. Infinity Field is Chillingo's entry into this genre and they've pretty much hit the ball  out of the park. The first thing you'll notice when you load up either one of the many game modes or the campaign is how tight the co…

Sprinkle: Water splashing fire fighting fun! Review

Review Mediocre AB By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 months ago
Sprinkle: Water splashing fire fighting fun! Review

There have been a few games in the App Store that have had players putting out fires with hoses, but none of them have seemed to pull it off with such finesse as the developers of Sprinkle have. It seems that Earth tourists are constantly crashing into the straw huts on Titan, one of Saturn's moons. Rather than let the inhabitants have their homes destroyed, it's up to you to man the water cannon and put out the fires, wasting as little water as possible. The hose is manned by three c…
