Grab A Slice Of Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots On 20th October

News By Richard Brown, 2 years, 11 months ago
Grab A Slice Of Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots On 20th October

Having written about one Best of 2010 iPhone game from an Australian developer only last week, we're turning the spotlight onto another App Store diamond cut Down Under. Halfbrick's Fruit Ninja finished 9th in our end-of-year rundown and shifted copies by the million - ten, to be precise - to voracious consumers worldwide, more than justifying the gamble the studio took when releasing the game exclusively on iOS devices. Now, the Aussie devs are set to take the Fruit Ninja franchise to the next level by jumping on the movie tie-in bandwagon, whose passengers already include Angry Birds Rio, Horrid Henry, and Doodle Jump: Hop. In collaboration with the makers of the forthcoming motion pict…


Anthill Review

Anthill Review

The ants are marching and god help you if you get in their way! With the iPhone's innovative use of touch controls, it's been nice to see a glut of strategy games available. What Anthill: Tactical Trail Defense does is put a unique spin on real time strategy gameplay by combining finger drawn paths with resource management and unit upgrades. The goal of each level is to withstand the waves of attacking insects, and to protect your anthill. You do this by creating ants to defend your h…

Super Cyclone Review

Review Miniclip.com By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Super Cyclone Review

Oops, we seem to have stumbled upon another twin stick shooter. Luckily for us, not only is Super Cyclone well made, but as you would hope of every addition to the genre, it adds a couple neat little things to the standard 'fly around and blast stuff' gameplay. First off, the controls are nice and responsive. The ship has a tight turn to it, but this never leaves you without an evasive escape opportunity when the enemy ships come. The goal of each level is to defend the stargate from…

Squishys Revenge Review

Review Toy Studio LLC By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Squishys Revenge Review

It seems unfeasible that a sliding tile puzzle game featuring a cute little blob named Squishy has a anti-corporate bent to it, but the evidence seems to be right there on the screen. Oh sure the story tells you that the evil Dr. Spudget has stolen all the Squishberries and it's up to Squishy to take revenge... but you do this by setting skyscrapers aflame, many of which seem to be alive. You monster! Each level gives you so many turns before Squishy moves. You need to flick tiles wit…

Piggy Adventure Review

Review Com2uS USA, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Piggy Adventure Review

We've seen quite a few games use the concept of some evil force draining the world of color and the player having to help the main characters restore vibrancy. Piggy's adventure would be the first time that this concept was completely divorced from the gameplay. As three barnyard animal painters, you need to color the black and white world of Avelon, but upon playing the game, one will notice immediately that someone has already beat them to the job. Using either tilt controls or on s…

4-Player Split-Screen Mode Incoming In Real Racing 2 Via AirPlay Mirroring

4-Player Split-Screen Mode Incoming In Real Racing 2 Via AirPlay Mirroring

To no great surprise whatsoever, Firemint's technically astounding Real Racing 2 roared onto AppSpy's round-up of 2010's best games in January. Improvements in the graphical, handling, and multiplayer departments were obvious even to the untrained eye, yet Real Racing 2's creators Firemint want to push the technological envelope further. One of the most intriguing - and potentially revolutionary - elements from a gaming perspective in the forthcoming iOS 5 software update is AirPlay Mirroring, which pipes content from an iPhone 4S onto a HD TV wirelessly. And Real Racing 2 will be one of the first iPhone titles to take advantage of this new feature once iOS 5 is made available to the publ…

Dark Meadow Review

Dark Meadow Review

Infinity Blade did something clever when it originally came out - and no I don't mean the graphics or oddly enough the gameplay itself, but rather the way in which it embraced the all too common trope of an amnesiac hero and spun it in to gold. While Dark Meadow by Phosphor Games Studio attempts to capture the engaging spirit of this new breed of RPG, it stumbles in key points, making it hard to truly fall in love with it. The main character is a mystery - essentially without identity…

A Moment of Silence For Steve Jobs

News By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
A Moment of Silence For Steve Jobs

Sometimes its hard to find the words in a situation like this - people like Steve Jobs are often distant to a degree that their passing is merely something to note. However, each day I go to work and even when I'm not at work, the legacy of this man's vision keeps me in touch; keeps me entertained; keeps me informed; and ultimately, has changed how I engage with the world around me. The fact that he has done this for so many others around the world as well only makes it all the more impactful. I have never been a PC or an Apple person - despite the intense feelings people have regarding their technology, I've always personally believed in picking the right tool for the problem at hand. At t…


Boss Battles Review

Review Backflip Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Boss Battles Review

There was a period where I couldn't go a week without a shooter of some variety to gush about or strip down; while trends like this are to be expected, it sorely tested my interest in the genre. What makes it odd is the distinct void that I hadn't anticipated from having not played a shooter in a long time and the idea of Boss Battle's free abstract boss-fighting gameplay was like an oasis in a vast, dry desert. One should caveat the whole 'free' thing before moving on though; for tho…

After numeorus rumours, assumptions, photographs, and more rumours, Apple has finally unveiled its new iPhone: the iPhone 4S. The smartphone, which will ship with iOS 5, comes packing the same dual-core A5 processor found in the iPad 2, and a new and improved 8-megapixel camera.

The iPhone 4S will be available to pre-order thi…


Slam Dunk King Review

Review PikPok By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Slam Dunk King Review

As freemium games become more and more popular as a monetary system for apps, the focus of a review no longer rests on whether or not a game is worth a player's money, but more along the lines of is it fun enough to pay to unlock additional content, and are there others ways to progress in game. Slam Dunk King is a high score arcade game based on swiping controls. It's more than a little reminiscent of Fruit Ninja in how a simple idea can be both a joy to play and addictive. The game…
