Burnout™ CRASH! Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Burnout™ CRASH! Review

Mayhem and destruction - these two factors have continually kept the Burnout series addictive and appealing to play, no matter its iteration. Burnout Crash! by Criterion Games and EA Mobile is no exception, though its reliance on random success can wear thin if you're after something that requires more skill. Don't let that thought get you down though. Learning to control your vehicle (in so much as you can) to create the biggest chain reactions can be immensely rewarding - not the le…

DevilDark: The Fallen Kingdom Review

DevilDark: The Fallen Kingdom Review

Despite their brutishly simple style, Action-RPGs remain steadfastly appealing; being able to dispatch hordes of enemies and then sifting through the chunky remains for useful items seems to push all the right kind of buttons for many gamers. DevilDark: The Fallen Kingdom by Triniti Interactive attempts to cash in on this simplicity, but it pulls its punch a little too much, making for a less than compelling title. While there are no specific classes, players can find themselves beati…

Sky Gnomes Review

Review Foursaken Media By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Sky Gnomes Review

When one thinks of gnomes the mind often wanders to those creepy all-too-happy garden statues strewn across your neighbor's yard. Who would have thought that they were dare-devils? OK, in fantasy it's long been known that gnomes like to tinker and invent contraptions, but if we are to believe Sky Gnomes by Foursaken Media, their favorite form of entertainment is to build racing machines that allow them to plummet from the sky as fast as gnome-nly possible.Sky Gnomes is an entirely mult…

On The Wind Review

Review Don't Step On The Cracks By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
On The Wind Review

As summer nods off into winter, the trees lose their leaves in autumn. This is a cycle of nature, but sometimes adhering to the natural order doesn't make for a good videogame, so On the Wind mixes things up a little bit. In this spin on the endless runner genre you need to take a group of leaves through as many seasonal changes as you can, controlling the omnipotent wind that will either carry these tree remnants through the challenges they face, or leave them to bloom into flowers up…

Mass Effect Infiltrator Receives Mass-ive Update

News By James Nouch, 2 years, 5 months ago
Mass Effect Infiltrator Receives Mass-ive Update

Mass Effect Infiltrator on iPhone has just received a substantial update, which adds a bonus mission and a host of tweaks to the tie-in sci-fi blaster. In Infiltrator's campaign mode, you play as a veteran agent of Cerberus - a shadowy humanity-first organisation which has been trafficking aliens for medical experimentation. In the newly added bonus mission, you take control of one of these captured aliens, and you're naturally pretty keen to escape the facility's medical bay before your body is 'donated' for scientific research. Thankfully, shooting your way out should be a little easier than before, for the new update delivers improved aiming and the option to disable the game's divisiv…

Friday News Wrap-Up 13 April 2012

Another week, another Wrap-Up... except for that last Friday. I was too busy gorging myself on pre-Easter candy and slipping in to a sugar-coma; I assure you, the headache I received was more than enough punishment for not having something prepared. However, lets cut to the chase.This is the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 13th of April, 2012. Spellsword - Glorious arena platformingWhile Muffin Knight may have beaten Super Crate Box to the punch on the iOS platform (and subsequently forged its own path), the base concept of arena-based platform combat is a simple, but addictive one. I'm glad to see more developers trying their hand at this burgeoning genre. Spellsword by Everplay is l…


Monster Takedown Review

Review Gameshrub By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Monster Takedown Review

Monster Takedown is a little confusing. The game starts with you picking from a list of humorous giant monsters. The monster of your choice in then plonked down in the middle of a hysterical metropolis and as the player you need to do all you can to protect the army from taking it down. The thing is you're protecting the monster, not trying to destroy it, and on top of that, it isn't really doing anything. It's just sitting there looking bewildered. Hey, those smoking skyscrapers might…

Infinity Blade II Price Cut For Limited Time Only

News By James Nouch, 2 years, 5 months ago
Infinity Blade II Price Cut For Limited Time Only

Chair's swipe-to-slice blockbuster Infinity Blade II is currently available at the knockdown price of $4.99 (it usually retails for $6.99). Building on the superb foundation laid by Infinity Blade, this sequel boasts an additional three combat styles, a massively expanded world, and a global network of slashers with whom you can team up to defeat titanic enemies. And while Infinity Blade's innovative combat system remains intact in this sequel, it's been refined and tweaked to near perfection. The character levelling and customisation has also been lovingly buffed to a high sheen, and now offers significantly more depth than its predecessor. If you remain unconvinced by that feature list…


Crow Review

Review Sunside Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Crow Review

Despite what your intuition may tell you, simplicity - nay, 'elegance' - is very hard to pull off when designing a game, especially when you're trying to convey a deeper meaning and experience. Crow by Sunside Games strips back the rail shooter and while its individual parts may seem simplistic, getting the full story will require dedication and skill. The titular crow is sent from another plane of existence to act as a vessel of vengeance, eventually getting caught up in the struggle…

Max Payne Mobile Review

Review Rockstar Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Max Payne Mobile Review

Much like when Rockstar released GTA3 for the iOS platform, I feel the best thing I could say for most gamers is that Max Payne Mobile lacks almost nothing of the original PC and console releases. In fact, while later games may have refined the bullet-time shooting mechanics, the game looses almost none of its fun-factor and charm. Poor Max is at the center of a conspiracy that first claims the life of his wife and child and eventually comes to a head years later while working as an u…

Nightfall Review

Review Playdek, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Nightfall Review

As much as I profess a love for board games, I must admit my preoccupation with video games keeps me out of the loop (as it were) when it comes to upcoming or popular titles. Nightfall, an aggressive deck-building card game from Alderac Entertainment Group, has gathered a strong following since its release last year - so it's no surprise to see Playdek, the iOS developer who brought out releases for Food Fight and Ascension, pushing this title out the door as well. Those familiar with…

Max Payne Hits the App Store At Midnight Tonight

Max Payne Hits the App Store At Midnight Tonight

Remedy Entertainment's third-person shooter Max Payne is out now on the New Zealand App Store, and will be slow mo diving its way into other territories at midnight tonight. Launched in 2001 to critical acclaim, the console version of Max Payne cast you as an undercover cop with a silly name and a murdered family. And when Max's best friend and DEA colleague is killed, things go from bad to worse. Payne is the prime suspect for his friend's murder and his mob cover is blown, leaving Max to fight a war on two fronts. Fortunately for us, that war is jolly good fun. Max Payne on iPhone has you spraying slow motion bullets at all manner of nasty men, while Max's moody internal monologue prop…


Top 3 iPhone Games for March 2012

Toplist By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Top 3 iPhone Games for March 2012

I'm honestly a little surprised that I didn't receive more death-threats for not having a Top List up for March by now, but I can only assume people were satiated by the immense amounts of candy they're likely to have recently consumed. In any case, the delay was necessary to catch up to all the releases that came out at the month's end, so now we have a definitive list of titles to choose from. What's my personal pick of the month?
