Chop Chop Slicer Review

The Chop Chop series of titles from Gamerizon has expanded once again with 'Slicer' following hot on the heels of their other recent release 'Rocket'. Chop Chop Slicer continues the adventures of the space-faring traveler of 'Rocket' as he crash-lands on an alien planet and must defend himself by slicing incoming enemies as quickly as possible. The arcade swiping gameplay is a fun mix between Fruit Ninja and Slice It! and players must react quickly to incoming enemies, slicing accurat…

EA Release Golden Oldie Dragon's Lair 2 On iPhone

EA's Dragon's Lair 2: Time Warp, the 1991 laser disc do-or-almost-certainly-die game, is out now on App Stores worldwide. Unchanged from the original, this epic adventure charges you with directing the protagonist Dirk the Daring all the way through time and space to reach and rescue Princess Daphne. EA has retained the 3, 5, and infinite lives options, for you will (undoubtedly) perish over and over and over again (repeat to fade). Dragon's Lair 2 is available to download right this second for $2.99. Let's hope it fares better than its 3* iPhone predecessor. In celebration, leeeeet's...dooooo...the...Tiiiiime...Warrrrrp...agaaaaain. Ahem.…


James Pond Is Back and On iOS From 30th June

James Pond Is Back and On iOS From 30th June

James Pond, the smooth and so-fish-ticated (sigh) super agent, will be swimming onto iPad and iPhone from 30th June. James Pond in the Deathly Shallows - a pun-tastic nod to Harry Potter's latest escapade - will invite you to rid the sea of pollution by navigating around a series of deadly underwater mazes. En route there will be a barrage of nasty starfish, barracuda, and jellyfish, but gladly you'll be armed to the tiny teeth with your trusty bubble gun. James Pond in the Deathly Shallows will mark the first outing in a brand new series of James Pond titles, which will hopefully contain the same gameplay and infectious soundtrack that has helped earn it over two million sales since 1990…


Max Damage Review

Review Digital Goldfish Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Max Damage Review

Max likes to blow things up. Some would say this makes him a social time-bomb, but then again others would gladly place a cannon in his hands to see what happens. Max Damage by Digital Goldfish sets aside the worrying idea that people have left a weapon along with their expensive goods in the vicinity of such a disturbed child and goes with the flow. Instead of having specific objects that need to be destroyed (say like pigs), you need to aim for the most amount of destruction, target…

10tons Of Peabrained Puzzling On iOS Now

10tons Of Peabrained Puzzling On iOS Now

Prepare for sickly-sweet cuteness on a scale only witnessed by those who played Yoshi's Story on the N64. Joining Hands, out today on iOS, is Finnish developer 10tons's first game since their rather less cutesy but still rather good Grim Joggers. In this canny puzzler, however, you're asked to rearrange pea-like creatures so that they're all holding hands. "Why?", I hear you ask. Well, the Peablins believe that by joining forces in this way, they will be protected from the bogeymen. There are roughly 90 levels to get on with, and more coming soon across all iOS platforms. Joining Hands is available to buy now for $2.99 on the App Store.…


Evil Dead Review

Review Trigger Apps By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Evil Dead Review

I, for one, have nothing to complain about when it comes to the Bruce Campbell love of late. Clearly I'm not the only one craving more one-liners and Trigger Apps have released their twin-stick shooter re-telling of the Evil Dead movies (with a bit of artistic license thrown in). As Ash you'll need to beat back Deadites and possessed flora and fauna while trying to protect your friends from the evil slowly overtaking them. For much of the game you'll be limited in your available resou…

Feed Me Oil Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Feed Me Oil Review

There's something distinctly disturbing about Feed Me Oil by Chillingo and HolyWaterGames - while the amazing fluid mechanics could be considered uncanny, the unnerving variety of creatures you end up 'feeding' are almost the stuff of nightmares. Though feed them you will as you obsess over engineering the perfect machines for transporting oil from the pipe and in to the monster's mouth(s). The immediate impression you get on loading up the game is one of a re-imagined World of Goo, b…

Zenga Release Social Hangman Game Hanging With Friends

Zenga Release Social Hangman Game Hanging With Friends

Breaking Noose! Social gaming behemoths Zynga have released Hanging With Friends onto the Canadian App Store. Based on the classic children's game Hangman, you have to correctly guess words one letter at a time in order to save a man from being hanged. And they said Mortal Kombat was a bad influence? In this modern rendition, there is a hefty portion of social features to make things more chortlesome, including the ability to play up to 20 concurrent games against your existing contacts. Instant replays also mean that you can have a good old laugh as you watch your opponents struggle and squirm to work out the partially revealed phrases. Hanging With Friends is out now in Canada for 99c…


Mighty Fin Review

Review Launching Pad Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Mighty Fin Review

Cute main character? Check. Single-touch gameplay? Check. High-score focus with collectable items? Check. Gorgeous visuals and catchy tunes? Check. Mighty Fin by Launching Pad Games may tick all the boxes when it comes to feeling like Tiny Wings, but to discount it on this basis would be a crime - Mighty Fin sinks its teeth in early and helping the cute little fish on his world-wide holiday is sure to give you a smile. Instead of riding hills and flinging yourself upwards with the mom…

Red Ball 3 Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Red Ball 3 Review

It's hard to accuse Red Ball 3 by Chillingo and RedBallStudio of following the pack when it comes to its physics-puzzle platforming gameplay. The way it feels to control your ball and even the variety of the levels themselves is almost entirely unique, which is a rare treat when you consider how many competitors are out there already. Your first major hurdle to overcome (and one that will probably take the longest to deal with) is coming to terms with the way in which your Red Ball fe…

Snake Updated For 21st Century In Hard Lines

News By Richard Brown, 2 years, 10 months ago
Snake Updated For 21st Century In Hard Lines

On the universally accepted scale of annoyance, ‘hard lines’ is sandwiched somewhere between ‘hard times’ and ‘hard cheese’. One game that we feel certain would have elicited shrieks of ‘hard lines’ from concerned high score owners looking over your shoulder is Snake, that frightfully addictive Nokia gem from yesteryear. Well, get ready for some similar self-loathing, knuckle-biting experiences in Spilt Milk Studios’s Snake reimagining on iPhone...unsurprisingly called Hard Lines. Due out on Thursday (9th June), Hard Lines features six different modes, ranging from Gauntlet to Time Attack, and Survival to Piñata. And as in its…

March of Heroes Will Be Gameloft’s First Unreal Engine Game

March of Heroes Will Be Gameloft’s First Unreal Engine Game

Perpetual copycats (though we won't hold that against them) Gameloft have finally given us a nugget regarding their much-anticipated Unreal Engine-based outing. The name of the game March of Heroes was announced by the Paris-headquartered studio via Twitter...and that is pretty much that, I'm afraid. We can expect more details, however, from the fast-approaching E3 conference in Los Angeles, but until then it’s up to us to interpret the title ourselves. We reckon it’ll either be a WW2-based shooter in the vein of Medal of Honour or Call of Duty, or it’ll be a superhero inspired walking simulator. I wonder which one to plump for...…


Konami's Classic X-Men Sneaks Its Way Onto iOS

Konami's Classic X-Men Sneaks Its Way Onto iOS

What's this coming in at a sneaky angle to iPhone and iPad? Why, it's Konami's 1992 arcade side-scroller X-Men. Even though Konami is presumably too preoccupied with E3 to publicise its release, we've decided to do their job for them today. Players of the original cabinet classic will know they're in for a treat, and those that don't should assume they soon will be. Utilising an on-screen joystick and button combo, X-Men invites you to take charge of mutant goodies Cyclops, Colossus, Wolverine, Storm, Nightcrawler, or Dazzler. As you can imagine, the aim is to bring down Magneto's naughty little scheme by blasting, teleporting, and, errr, punching your way through hordes of unwitting paw…
