DOFUS : Battles Review

Review Ankama By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
DOFUS : Battles Review

In a way I feel woefully disappointed that I'm not more familiar with the Dofus series of titles by Ankama Games, but I'm pleasantly surprised to find that despite the rich background it has, Dofus: Battles for the App Store is not only approachable, but a great introduction to this fascinating world. The mythos quickly sets up a narrative based around a demonically inspired human who presents a threat to the current gods, leading them to each create a champion, along with a magical d…

Nano Panda Review

Review Unit9 By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Nano Panda Review

Don't be fooled by this game's cute exterior - the panda's may be cute and the panicked reactions of the evil atoms may be amusing, but Nano Panda by Unit9 isn't for the easily frustrated. While the idea of destroying atoms with cute pandas may sound like a recipe for heart-break, you'll soon wish you could fire a thousand pandas in to a thousand atoms just to get some satisfaction. It sounds like I'm raging out on the game, but let me be perfectly clear - the game is insanely addictiv…

THOR: Son of Asgard Review

Review Marvel Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
THOR: Son of Asgard Review

Ahhh the movie tie-in - gamers dread its appearance for much the same reason that comic fans dread the movie conversion, especially when there's an outside chance that things actually come together so you have to give it a chance. THOR was a decent film - definitely worth seeing if you're after an action blockbuster - however the same can't be said of the App Store title Son of Asgard by Marvel Entertainment. Despite sporting the visual style of the film, the story is set apart and po…

Polarbit Take Another Crack At Kart Racing

News By Michael McNally, 2 years, 11 months ago
Polarbit Take Another Crack At Kart Racing

'Cracking Sands' isn't an Englishman complimenting a beach, or anything like that at all, actually. Rather, it's the codename for Swedish studio Polarbit's new iOS kart racer. Polarbit do love their racing games, having already entertained us with Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart and more serious sims such as Raging Thunder 2. With a noticeably top-down perspective and the winning formula of cartoon characters, power-ups, and power slides, Cracking Sands looks to be gearing up for action very nicely. You'll get further details when we do, so sit tight. In the meantime, feast your eyes on the screenies below. Enjoy.…


Catch The Candy Review

Review Bulkypix By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Catch The Candy Review

So... you've got some candy and you've got a rope (of sorts), but in Catch the Candy by Bulkypix and FedoIT there's no cutting required. In fact the squishy little blue/purple fuzzball you control is like Spiderman if Spiderman lived in a quaint forest and used his powers to eat candy. The analogy, aside from odd, is actually apt as each of the 53 currently available levels are completed by flinging a sticky limb out from the little monster in order to grab on to objects and swing aro…

Chromanoids™ Review

Review Hothead Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Chromanoids™ Review

There are some game concepts that remain insanely compelling for decades, thanks in part to the way they've influenced other titles, but also because they're simple enough to grasp immediately and challenging enough to keep you coming back for more. Chromanoids by Hothead Games takes another crack at the Missile Command formula, adding a color-based twist and managing to bring an arcade-like feel thanks its unique 'credit' system. At its most basic level players need only to tap the s…

DeathSpank Team Launch Full Scale Assault On iOS

DeathSpank Team Launch Full Scale Assault On iOS

Hothead Games is a famed indie console game developer and publisher based in Vancouver, Canada. You may know them from such titles as DeathSpank, Precipice of Darkness, and Swarm. What may be news to you, though, is that aforementioned studio is branching out...sorry, is BRANCHED out. First off, this acclaimed console team launched Bunny the Zombie Slayer onto the App Store, a castle defence title starring a resolute and - dare I say it – rampant rabbit. Second off, Hothead Games has blasted the colourful, retro space shooter Chromanoids onto iPhone and iPad, featuring power-ups, waves and waves of enemy, and romance. Yes, romance. That’s not all from the Spanky boys: a multiplayer…

TNA Wrestling Impact! Hitting iPhone Ring On 19th May

Vince McMahon’s legendary WWE promotion stepped into the App Store squared circle with its Angry Birds-alike Superstar Slingshot a month or so ago. Long-time rival federation TNA (or Total Nonstop Action to the non-believers), meanwhile, debuted on iPhone in front of a sizeable crowd in 2009 with its RPG / sports hybrid title. And Dixie Carter’s boys are looking to bring it once again, as Namco Bandai’s TNA Wrestling Impact! is scheduled for one fall on 19th May. Many of your favourite TNA grapplers will be in action, including Kurt Angle, RVD, and AJ Styles, while it’ll also be possible to create your own wrestler and fashion a few nifty finishing moves for him to pull off. I wi…


Rooftop Escape Review

Review Colorbox By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Rooftop Escape Review

It's not often that an endless platformer of some variety comes along and I actually sigh a breath of relief - I'm not about to complain about playing something almost completely devoid of the need to think and it's likely many others feel the same way when they play these addictive titles. Rooftop Escape by Colorbox is a vertical falling game that pits you against the side of a building as clothes-lines and balconies act as the only thing between you and high-score victory. Touching…

Army of Darkness Defense Review

Review Backflip Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Army of Darkness Defense Review

Army of Darkness was, even in my early years, a cult-classic and with such a following it's hard not to step on some toes when approaching the franchise for a video game conversion. Instead of trying to create something grandiose and overly-complex, Backflip Studios sticks to what it does best - that is to say, a game that's focused with a limited scope while still being enjoyable enough to keep coming back for more. There are no surprises for guessing what kind of game Army of Darkne…

Cartographers and N.O.V.A. 2 fans alike will be pleased to know that Gameloft have thrown us a lovely new downloadable map pack to scour, as well as a handful of bug fixes. If like I, you enjoy varied killing sprees, then your deep-seated urges are catered for amply with this expansion set. There are skirmishes aplenty to be had in one map in particular, Floating Rocks, while Aquarius Beach nurtures everyone's desire to pick someone off from a sniper nest.

15 Extra Levels In Jump Out! Update

15 Extra Levels In Jump Out! Update

Avallon Alliance’s Cut the Rope-inspired Jump Out! only leapt onto the App Store on 22nd April, yet the developers have already rolled out two updates. The major refresh, otherwise known as v. 1.5, brings some rather dull improvements – namely performance enhancements – and some rather exciting goodies to this beguiling physics-based puzzler. And given one of Andrew’s few criticisms about Jump Out! was its longevity, the inclusion of 15 brand stonking new levels should atone for that shortcoming to a degree. Retina display support for compatible iHandsets has also been added in the latest revision, making those awfully darling bugs pop and zing across the screen. Whilst Avallon A…


Glo Flo Review

Review Beeline Interactive, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Glo Flo Review

It seems that Beeline Interactive is on a role and their latest title Glo Flo follows hot on the heels of the recent side-scrolling shooter Who's That Flying?!. In this colorful puzzler by developer GameTantra Digital you'll need to match bugs by drawing connections on a grid, however while the idea is sound it's hard to stay focused as the challenge quickly plateaus. Those familiar with similar puzzle titles like Pathpix will pick up the gameplay in a snap, though there's not too muc…

Vampire Rush Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Vampire Rush Review

Combining Action-RPG elements with Tower Defense gameplay sounds like a marriage made in heaven and while Dungeon Defenders had its execution problems on the smaller iDevices, it proved that the concept can (and for some does) really work. Vampire Rush from Chillingo and A-Steroids follows in the wake of this title and while it may not boast the same complexity and depth, the toned down gameplay makes for a much easier game to approach. The basic gameplay consists of players controlli…

Green Farm Ploughs Onto iPhone and iPad

FarmVille thief (just kidding, Zynga) Green Farm has moseyed its way on down to the iPhone and iPad all the way from Zuckerberg Alley. The good news for existing Green Farm ranchers is that you'll have no need to bellow 'GET OFF MY LAND!' into the digital darkness, like some mad, binary lunatic. This is almost entirely - in fact, entirely - because you can just log back into your pre-existing Facebook farm and carry on trowling there. If you are so inclined, you can purchase seeds, animals, and buildings to pimp your farm, or go green with organic plants and other imaginary renewable energy sources. Why not visit a friend's farm and play some mini-games, too, eh? Gameloft have promised…
