KAMI RETRO Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
KAMI RETRO Review

I have to hand it to Gamevil - despite the roaring success of their collection of RPG-based titles, the company is still willing to branch out and try something way outside their comfort zone. KAMI RETRO jumps on the puzzle platform conga line by adding a slight Lemmings twist to the usual formula, however while the gameplay has its charms it's the presentation that will prove to be the make or break decision for most people. KAMI RETRO keeps things simple with a single-touch control…

The 7th Guest Review

Review Trilobyte Games, LLC. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
The 7th Guest Review

Oh yes indeed, we're not only plumbing the depths of App Store, but of gaming history itself by tackling the classic that is The 7th Guest by Trilobyte Games. Its release for iOS devices is a mixed blessing and players can expect some enhancements in the form of smoother, speedier transitions and refinements to the game's controls, but there's no denying that The 7th Guest has aged badly and what was a relatively awkward pairing of horror and puzzle elements in the 90s now feels slight…

Pirate : Cannonball Siege Review

Review BLACKPIXEL STUDIO By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Pirate : Cannonball Siege Review

And now for something completely different. Have you ever wished you were a pirate? Sure it would have been a hard life of punching cannonballs back at ships while defending the taverns you frequent, but no one said it would be easy. That is what pirates did right? 'Pirate : Cannonball Siege' by BLACKPIXEL STUDIO takes a step off the beaten track and while all the hallmarks of a pirat-ey lifestyle are in place, other elements like your character's Asian and Viking inspired garb are so…

Pig Rockets Review

Review Camigo Media LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Pig Rockets Review

What does rocket fuel, Tetris, bacon and the castle defense genre have in common? More times than not I'd say they don't really have anything in common, but if you're playing Pig Rockets by Camigo Media you'd be surprised at just how relevant they all are. Wave after wave of rocket-controlled piggies are attempting to blow up your house, barn, dog-house, mansion (and so on) and you'll need to put your Tetris skills to work in order to create barriers that will crush their advance. Gro…

Painkiller Purgatory Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Painkiller Purgatory Review

Never has a title felt so entirely appropriate as it does for 'Painkiller Purgatory'. Despite its theme, playing the game is easily one of the more numbing, soulless experiences you could have that not only manages to poorly represent the series it comes from, but also the genre of classic over-the-top First Person Shooters. The Painkiller series has typically been defined by two factors that add up to huge amounts of fun - clever and varied weaponry and power-ups that provide a multi…


Space Bunnies Review

Review ShockPanda Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Space Bunnies Review

Bunnies are by their very nature an extremely cute species - sure we could get in to how we as humans are conditioned to various forms of 'cuteness', but damn it I just like bunnies, leave me alone! Space Bunnies follows the adventures of a race of alien bunnies who for reasons unknown are green and look like Gir in his dog-suit from Invader Zim, but I digress... they need to find a new home and you'll need to fly their ship of cuddles and rainbows across the universe in search of a st…

Super Ball Escape Review

Review Thomas Meyer By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Super Ball Escape Review

Super Ball Escape by Playlithium may look like a fairly prototypical Labyrinth-inspired tilt-based game and you'd be right, well at least for the first few minutes of the game, but it doesn't take long before you're morphing and trying to trick your way past defenses to escape the crazy maze you're stuck in. But first things first - at what point in the future did humanity decide to design their buildings out of corridors and thin platforms that drop off in to a near-bottomless void?…

Trigonon Review

Trigonon Review

Trigonon by Just Funny Games goes to a lot of effort to introduce players to the concept of pinballs being 'thoughts' that need to be captured by exploiting memories (positive and negative) and other metaphorical objects, but ultimately this puzzler will test your skills at quickly analyzing levels and creating barriers capture all the balls as fast as possible. Tapping on the level will generate a barrier (as long as you have enough energy to do so) and can subsequently be spun aroun…

Land-a Panda Review

Review Big Pixel Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Land-a Panda Review

Big Pixel Studios have already garnered a reputation for their ability to combine clean, cute and amusing sticker-art style visuals with gameplay that's just as fun and their latest arcade-puzzle title Land-a Panda is no exception. Apologies for my poor pronunciation, but Yang Guang is out to capture the heart of the lovely Tian Tian, but cannons, walls, spikes, ghosts and other hazards will conspire against these star-crossed lovers. This is where you jump in, taking control over the…

The Drill Plus Review

Review Spotcat Studio By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
The Drill Plus Review

If you feel the burning need to follow the manly quest of one man to drill his way to a brand new universe, then strap yourself in for The Drill Plus by Spotcat Studio. Although 'The Drill' is already available for free, the Plus paid version removes adverts and adds additional story elements, but unfortunately there's not enough to do to truly warrant this paid jump. Your task, should you undertake it, is to tilt your iOS device, moving your character back and forth to pop 'enemies'…

Collision Effect Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Collision Effect Review

I'm not sure why the orbs in Collision Effect by Chillingo and Vishindo needed to be named anything at all, but if you were wondering, they're called Zybbles. Zybbles need to collide with one another, but they can only collide with Zybbles of the same color, so you'll need impeccable timing and keen spacial recognition skills to either beat your high-score or to solve the puzzle you're currently on. I think I'll just call them orbs from now on yeah? Much of what makes Collision Effec…

MAPPY by NAMCO Review

Review NAMCO BANDAI Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
MAPPY by NAMCO Review

Oh man. Things just got real. MAPPY by NAMCO has finally found its way on to the App Store and now a whole new generation of gamers can experience the bizarre madness of this classic arcade title.Your goal as Mappy the Police-mouse is to recover the items stolen by the infamous cat-burglars the Mewkies and their leader Goro (or Nyamco if you're used to the Japanese name). Unfortunately this also means you're going to be a walking snack for the cats as you roam around each house, but as…

Gameloft, Dungeon Hunter 2 and Discounts (oh my)

News By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Gameloft, Dungeon Hunter 2 and Discounts (oh my)

Gameloft have recently launched a brand new promo to give their customers a chance to set the price of Dungeon Hunter 2 when it goes on discount later this week (March 12th). The catch is that the final price will be determined by the amount of votes submitted in support of the promo, with each price bracket requiring 2000 votes to reduce the price by another dollar. This does mean a bit of shameless shilling to get a better discount, but it's the jagged little pill you have to swallow if you really want the game to drop from $6.99 to $0.99. If you happen to be wired in to this crazy thing we call the Internets you might just have a Twitter or a Facebook account - heck, you might even be c…


DoubleDragon Review

DoubleDragon Review

If you're going to talk about Arcade beat'em-ups, you have to talk about Double Dragon - not only is it easily one of the most recognizable titles in the genre, it helped to define future titles thanks to its bone-crunching gameplay. Many consoles including the humble Atari 2600 were graced with adaptions of the game, but now iPhone gamers can claim something truly special - a full update of the game including improved graphics and additional gameplay and features. Players are locked…

The Flood: Salvation Review

The Flood: Salvation Review

I'm not alone in my dread of drowning - I can happily swim and I have no fear of water in general, but the idea of being stuck underwater just chills me to the core. Thankfully 'The Flood: Salvation' by CouldGears is about saving someone from drowning, but the idea of leaving a person at the mercy of someone's logical puzzle solving skills feels like a strange twist on a Saw movie like trap. Putting my own issues aside, the gameplay is incredibly clever and where most physics-based pu…
