Amp, Watts & Circuit Review

Review Jamo Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 2 months ago
Amp, Watts & Circuit Review

Sometimes, even robots need a vacation. In Amp, Watts & Circuit, you control the titular characters trying to escape their jobs, in the hopes of some well deserved rest and recuperation. Each level has you in a small isometric area full of buttons and traps, and a starting and finishing tile for each of the three characters. Tapping on the character's portrait will switch to them, and then tapping on the screen will move them in that direction, and if there's no spikes or pits on…

Earn to Die Review

Review Not Doppler By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Earn to Die Review

Flightless birds and spaceward-bound rodents may make for cute and heartfelt inspirations for repeatedly launching them towards their ultimate goal, but there has always been an element missing from the experience - a sense of skill. Earn to Die by Toffee Games and Not Doppler fleshes out the short, but uniquely fun Flash game title, pitting you against the ever-ready threat of zombies, but for once your progress will also be bound to your skills as a driver. In games of this sort the…

Wrapup By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
App Wrap Up (Week Ending 21st September 2012)

Hey Hey everyone. It's the end of the week and i have another App Wrap Up for you. As always, here are some games that you might like to play based on their trailers. If you do purchase one and give it a try, why not tell us what your thoughts of it are in the comments? Well, let's get started! Blue Libra (Orator Games) A real time space strategy game. I wonder if it plays like Galcon, or if it's more about squads and strategic placement. Regardless, it looks like a fun romp for strategy fans.[App Store Link] iTapPirate ( Inter Illusion) Part of this looks like a first person action game, the other part is reminiscent of Lethal Enforcers. Oh, and it features pirates, so tha…


Rail Rush Review

Review Miniclip.com By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Rail Rush Review

There's something inherently enjoyable about mine cart rides in videogames. From Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom to Donkey Kong Country, they remain a memorable part of those titles. Wait, did I say enjoyable? I must have meant hair-tearingly frustrating. Well luckily Rail Rush isn't that psychotic. I mean it eventually becomes that way the longer you play for, but being in the same vain as Temple Run, this sort of exponential difficulty is expected. The formula here is pretty st…

LookOut - Blizzard Review

Review The App Company By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
LookOut - Blizzard Review

No one ever thinks about the plight of the poor snowball. Created to be hurled, rolled, exploded and forgotten. Even its dreams of growing and becoming something more can be stopped by the callous whims of the elements. In this tale of snowball survival the stakes are a lot higher, with literal elemental forces of fire, water, and earth among others, shooting cross screen to turn our balled protagonist into nothing more than a hail of white powder. In design Lookout-Blizzard plays a l…

iMpulse is the world's smallest wireless controller for mobile devices

iMpulse is the world's smallest wireless controller for mobile devices

Some KickStarter projects make you sit up and take notice, and the iMpulse certainly fits into that category. It's a key ring that doubles up as a wireless controller for your iOS or Android device. More than that, it lets you control your media, take photos without touching your phone or tablet, and if you install a special app, it'll even make a sound when you're trying to find your keys. You can use it either way round, so if you're a wierdo who uses controllers backwars you're well catered for, and you can even sync two to the same device, opening up a whole swarm of multiplayer possibilities. The device connects through bluetooth, so battery life shouldn't be too much of a problem,…

Don't rain on my parade in October

While a game like Negative Nimbus may be outside our standard game fare, being as it's targeted for young children, i felt that the sense of humour and fun was prominent enough, and the concept interesting enough to warrant a preview. Have a watch of the trailer. It should be out sometime in October.…


STREET FIGHTER X TEKKEN MOBILE  Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
STREET FIGHTER X TEKKEN MOBILE  Review

In only three short months STREET FIGHTER X TEKKEN (SFxTK) has undergone a transition from its true home on Consoles and PCs to the mobile platform. Fighter fans may take exception to my wording there, but fear not, Street Fighter on iOS has (to date) been adapted almost perfectly for touch-screen devices. SFxTK is no exception to this and indeed it places even more emphasis on its ‘versus’ modes than ever before - sure you can enjoy the game single-player, but if you have…

Lili™ Review

If you’re one of the handful of people who If you’re one of the handful of people who missed out on hearing about Lili by BitMonster, then you’re in for a treat. There was absolutely no question of how beautiful this game was going to be as it not only sports the Unreal Engine, but those who made it are ex-Epic and quite familiar with how to use it. However, what really counts isn’t the presentation, but how it interacts with the gameplay - and on this score the…

Motorbike Vrooming in the App Store

Physics based racing / platformer games have become a hot commodity in the past few years with plenty of attempts by developers to recreate a Trails HD, Joe Danger, or Bike Baron.
