Bucketz Review

Review PICNICHIPPO By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Bucketz Review

Sometimes you just have to admire the level of dedication given to certain aspects of a game. Often it's the attention to detail in the programming, wowing the player with intriguing answers to the question of “hmm, I wonder if I can do this”. In Bucketz however, the dedication is in the level of commitment to the personalities of the characters in game. Not only are they are an amusing lot of sentient buckets with distinct characteristics, but every single level contains i…

Chimpact Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Chimpact Review

OK. We all know that monkeys love bananas. Did you also know they apparently share our trait for greed when it comes to diamonds? The higher you go in the treetops, the more of these shiny gems are ripe for the taking. That's Chimpact in a nut shell... or should we say banana skin? There are canopies in the canopy the can be flung with your finger to slingshot the simian through each level. Each stage has a linear path with a couple hidden areas ripe with bananas or gems. If you follo…

App Wrap Up (Weekend Edition, 13 August 2012)

Well it's the start of the week and what we have for you is another edition of the App Wrap Up! As always we are evaluating these games based on their trailers, and they have been featured here because something about them looks interesting. If you've played any of these titles, please let everyone know your thoughts down in the comments. Let's do this! Gas Tycoon 3 (LEMICO Soft) A Pipe Dreams style of game with a level editor and easy access share system. It looks like that game has a little bit of style to boot. For those not yet tired of this genre since its resergence on mobile devices, this could be a good pick just based on the breadth of content.[App Store Link] iSpherical -…


Trigger Fist Review

Review Lake Effect Applications By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Trigger Fist Review

It's a surprise more effort hasn't been placed in to creating the next-best multiplayer shooter for mobile and handheld devices, especially considering their popularity on the PC and Console. Titles such as Modern Combat have gone a long way in picking up the slack, but now and then you crave something simpler; something more immediate, and Trigger Fist by Lake Effect Applications fills this niche perfectly. First impressions matter and it's not hard to get a classic Counter Strike ty…

PITFALL!™ Review

PITFALL!™ Review

For something like a 30th Anniversary you'd think Pitfall would be given a much larger 'hurrah' - the game has gone through differing types of 'remakes' over the years, but now the game has been reduce to an auto-runner. Don't get me wrong, it's a perfect match and ultimately works in Pitfall's favor, but with so many competitors it ran the risk of slipping under the radar. I guess that's the power of a name like Pitfall for a company like Activision - you just can't help but bring at…

App Wrap Up (Week Ending, August 10th 2012)

It's the end of the week and time for the 3rd installment of App Wrap Up. Man, there's just so many games coming out. I guess it's cause everyone is finally gearing up towards the final quarter, which is just game overload for every platform. I guess we can expect to see a lot more of these. As always, we're just posting trailers of games that look like they might have something interesting to offer. Our analysis is based on the trailers. Without further ado, let's begin. Sunshine (Morbidware di Diego Sacchetti) I've played a couple games like this before for review. They're simple 'one touch to jump' platformers that utilise the orbit of planets, kind of like a 2d Super Mario Galax…

Top 3 iOS Games for July 2012

Toplist By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Top 3 iOS Games for July 2012

Up, down, up, down - this time of year is certainly proving to be a confusing one as we find the occasional bright, shining gem, only to be left dealing with a swathe of average titles that fail to live up to expectations. I'm still holding out hope for August's titles, but for those of you who can't wait lets go over the highlights as we cover the Top 3 iOS games for July, 2012. Editor's Choice: Tentacle Wars (FDG Mobile) $0.99First off the block is a game that takes a formula we've seen played around with in the past, but for the first time in quite a while someone has managed to add a unique twist that adds a surprising amount of depth. Tentacle Wars not only places you in cont…


Mad Skills BMX Trailer

Mad Skills BMX Trailer

Developer Turborilla has taken a slightly different approach when it comes to marketing the upcoming release of Mad Skills BMX. Most times a company will stick with the tried-and-true method of fast-editing and lots of buzzwords like 'dynamic' and 'radical' and 'synergistic' (or maybe I'm thinking of the 80s), but Turborilla has other plans... they have a story to tell: . Best of all we'll be getting our pudgy little hands on a copy of the game soon, so we'll be able to let you know as soon as possible what we think of the title. For everyone else the game will be out on Thursday, 16th of August, 2012. [Mad Skills BMX Trailer - Youtube / Turborilla]…


Kid Vector Review

Review UNCADE By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Kid Vector Review

In the last few years, there's been an increase in pixel art as a popular style for games. Some of this is that it can be easier to create, but the most prevalent reason is that it throws back nostalgically to the games of many of our childhoods, and as most of us have found out through our lives, mostly to our dismay, nostalgia can color an experience in a positive way based on its connections to our past, regardless of the experience's overall quality. Kid Vector has taken a differen…

Commando Jack Review

Review Colossal Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Commando Jack Review

It seems that the tower defense genre has been sort of played out for the last couple of years. Oh yes new games come out that add something interesting to the formula, and games come out that remind us why the genre became so popular to begin with, but it's only in the last year or so we've seen an evolutionary shift in tower defense, and what's more is that this shift is so simple, it's amazing not many developers thought of it before. I am of course talking about allowing the player…

Yesterday i said we had another app wrap up for you and here we go! Remember as always, we can't speak on the quality of these games, just that they look like they might have something interesting to offer. SoundReaktor (Innovative Labs) A rhythm game dealing with loops, samples and sound effects. Kind of giving you overview over a mixing board, hit the button or buttons at the appropriate time to buld the song and keep it going. Bonus buttons look to add to your overall score. This video is one of many on their channel showcasing a playthrough of particular songs, and there's even freestyle options to just play around.[App Store Link] Roxy Dark and the Spydrs (RPGM) Arachn…


Wizorb Review

Review Tribute Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Wizorb Review

For some it may seem strange to think that brick-breakers were once all the rage, much like physics-flingers like Angry Birds or cutesy puzzlers like Cut the Rope. Wizorb not only pays tribute to this strange era of ball-bouncing, brick-breaking action, but seeks to marry it with action elements, giving you a reason to want to break on through to the other side (as it were). You play as the rather strangely specialized wizard named 'Cyrus' who can transform in to a ball and paddle. Af…
