League of Evil 2 Brings Another Dose Of Scientist Punching To iPhone

News By James Nouch, 2 years, 9 months ago
League of Evil 2 Brings Another Dose Of Scientist Punching To iPhone

League of Evil 2 has hit the App Store today, launching at the discounted price of 99c. Boasting 103 levels of tight platforming action, this much-anticipated sequel has you bounding through 2D environments with a vital mission. To punch scientists in the face. Evil scientists, mind. With stars awarded based on how quickly you complete each level, three-star obsessives will have to use every acrobatic trick in the book to ace the stages, including double-jumping, flipping, and wall-jumping. This follow-up to Ravenous Games's 5/5 platformer League of Evil does away with the pixel-art visuals of its predecessor, opting instead for hand-drawn animations by indie studio Bulletproof Outlaws.…


Monster Wars Review

Review Liv Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
Monster Wars Review

Fans of Liv Games' previous head-to-head castle defense amalgamation Legendary Wars, should be happy about the release of Monster Wars. Less a sequel, and more a companion piece, in this title you take control of the monsters that have been slayed en masse in not only games of this genre but pretty much every fantasy game out there. It's time for revenge! While the majority of the gameplay is your standard castle vs castle game, there is more to think about than which low cost monster…

Gorilla Gondola Review

Review Electric Pixel Factory Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
Gorilla Gondola Review

If the SNES Classic Donkey Kong Country has taught us anything, it's that an ape will go to any length for bananas. Even travel by hazardous ski lift apparently. In Gorilla Gondola you are enabling this Gorilla's banana habit as you travel through exotic locations, trying your hardest not to have his gondola smash on the rocks. How would he travel without it? The first thing you'll notice upon loading up Gorilla Gondola is the catchy beat pumping out over the menu screen. The second t…

Blot Review

Review Majestic Software By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
Blot Review

A lot of the time it can be hard to be a fair when you see so many instances of the same game. The trick then becomes to look for the innovative or failing that, what the title has to offer in terms of fun. Blot is essentially Jetpack Joyride taking place on a student's school notebook full of sketches. It is this setting however that provides the angle for which reviewing yet another Jetpack Joyride clone can be tackled. You control a blot of ink weaving its way through the hazards o…

100 Trials Review

Review Fusion Reactions By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
100 Trials Review

Interestingly, despite a brief burst of popularity some time ago, Rogue-like dungeon crawlers have all but moved away from the spotlight, being increasingly dominated by turn-based and strategic RPGs. 100 Trials by Fusion Reactions extends the original 100 Rogues' 'Challenge Mode' in to full-fledged game, piggybacking on the recent trend of turn-based titles and adding its own spin on things. For those familiar with the original title, not a lot has changed - in fact you'd be forgiven…

Zombie : The Rescue Review

Review GOGN Entertainment By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
Zombie : The Rescue Review

Did anyone ever play the Commandos series? It was good at creating a lot of tense moments when you had to pick the right time to slip between guard patrols so as not to be noticed. Firemint brought that sense of timing and tension to the iPhone with Spy Mouse and now GOGN entertainment have added zombies to the mix with Zombie : The Rescue. Yep, it's the zombie apocalypse... again. There are hostages that need rescuing from the bloody brain biters but getting them to safety isn't the…

One Epic Game Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
One Epic Game Review

Hyperbole isn't usually something that we take videogames to task for. I mean there can be some backlash on failed promises and over-hyping of a game (just ask Peter Molyneux), but generally when a game describes itself as epic we all just kind of smile politely and carry on with whatever we're doing. This is how we felt when approaching One Epic Game. Attempting to throw many of the app store's overused gaming conventions in a blender to leave them open to satire, you play a hero who…

Raid Leader Review

Review Crescent Moon Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Raid Leader Review

I'm not ashamed to admit that I have dedicated a large portion of my life to World of Warcraft by Blizzard - it's not in my life right now (though I expect I'll enjoy their upcoming expansion briefly), but at one time I was a raid leader for a high level guild. This isn't boasting, but rather a way of saying that when Raid Leader by Red Zebra and Crescent Moon Games dropped on the App Store, I had a lot of experience to draw on... and let me tell you, it helped a lot. You see, much li…

Diggin' Dogs Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Diggin' Dogs Review

In a world ruled by cute dogs, three adventurers will dig their way through hazardous caverns in order to retrieve the lost pirate-dog treasure, along with a few bones - because, you know, they might get hungry too! Diggin' Dogs by Soap Creative and Chillingo is a hard game to pin down despite bearing a striking similarity to similar treasure hunting titles of the past. You see, the dogs you control (as well as the environment itself) is subject to the physical influences of your iDev…

Super Meat Boy Being Rebuilt For Possible iPhone Release

News By James Nouch, 2 years, 9 months ago
Super Meat Boy Being Rebuilt For Possible iPhone Release

Team Meat, the independent studio behind the console and PC indie platformer Super Meat Boy, announced on Twitter yesterday that they would be rebuilding the game from the ground up for a possible iPhone launch. According to the team's tweets, this game would be 'a re-envisioning of [Super Meat Boy] remade from scratch for touch', and it 'will not play like SMB!' Anyone speculating on what form the game may take can rule out a simple high score chase-'em-up, as Team Meat explicitly said it won't be 'a simple game like "Doodle Jump" it will be a larger more traditional game'. Nor will it control much like Super Meat Boy. Nor even be released unless the team are completely happy with the re…

Cave’s Dodonpachi Blissful Death Out Now On the App Store

Dodonpachi Blissful Death has hit the App Store today, the latest in a long line of Cave arcade shooters to be ported across to iOS. Not that we're complaining, of course. After all, Cave's previous iOS efforts include the 5/5 scoring ESPGALUDA II and Mushihimesama Bug Panic, which also earned top marks in our review. Anyway, back to Blissful Death... In Cave's newest manic shooter for the iPhone, you can select from six different ship types, take part in a Practice mode to hone your skills, and choose from four difficulty levels. Those of us with merely human reflexes will want to leave those higher tiers of difficulty well alone. Game Center and OpenFeint have also been integrated in…

DoDonPachi Blissful Death Review

Review CAVE CO.,LTD. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
DoDonPachi Blissful Death Review

While DoDonpachi Blissful Death (or Dai Ou Jou) was the fourth title in the DonPachi series, it was also considered the first true sequel to DoDonPachi. For those on iOS devices, it's CAVE's second release of the series for the platform, and for those following the story of the series this makes it an interesting release as it puts you in control of the very ships and dolls that went on to become your enemies in 'Resurrection'. The tangled, weaving storyline of the DonPachi series is…

Ragdoll Blaster 3 Review

Review Backflip Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Ragdoll Blaster 3 Review

If you can't beat'em, join'em - it seems to be a rallying cry for many titles of late and so it's no surprise to see Ragdoll Blaster 3, the latest release in Backflip Studios' flagship games, joining the 'cute and cuddly' revolution. We won't blame them though because the upside is the addition of four new 'ragdolls', each with their own unique skills to add to the game's already fun physics gameplay. One thing the shift from a stylized design to a friendlier 'cute' motif has changed…
