ZENONIA® 5 Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
ZENONIA® 5 Review

If nothing else, it has been an interesting experience reviewing Zenonia 5. The last game in the series played by this reviewer was the first, and it's interesting to see what's changed and what has stayed the same. In this latest installment there has been a war brewing between the rich and the poor, so much so that it has attracted the attention of demons. You start off as an apprentice in a small town that has dreamed of this conflict, and embark on a journey to try and put things r…

Mushroom Wars Heading to iPad this Week

Super Hexagon arrives on Android

Super Hexagon arrives on Android

It's fair to say that we loved Super Hexagon. If you don't believe us, why not go read our review of Terry Kavanagh's mind warping, reaction testing abstraction of the platform game. When you've done that, come back here and we'll tell you the good news. Sorted? Good. Well, the news is good if you own an Android device, because Super Hexagon is now available from the Google Play Store. If that's enough to convince you to stop reading and go download, you can do that by clicking here. If you need a little more persuading, how about the fact that the Android version is currently on sale at a discount of 66%, which means you can pick it up for less than a dollar.  You'll need an Android…

Little Amazon Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
Little Amazon Review

We come back to this time and time again, but if you design your game towards encouraging people to spend money on In-App Purchases, it should at most be a gentle nudge, and you should most definitely not have your entire game feel like a hampered grind. Little Amazon sadly falls in this latter category. Lily is trying not only to flee the clutches of the evil demon Gruul, but is trying to save the entire kingdom by running faster than she's ever run before. In a neat addition, the sto…

Wake the Cat Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
Wake the Cat Review

See the cat. See the cat dream of yarn. Let's make the cat's dreams come true! See the yarn? Roll the yarn. Roll the yarn towards the cat. Don't let those hyper-dimensional portal slippers or gravitational fields get in the way. Let's make the cat's dreams come true! If our intro hasn't given it away, Wake the Cat is both a simple concept and a perplexing one. Each level consists of a small overhead view of a portion of the house, and of course the object is to roll the yarn towards t…

Roar Rampage

Roar Rampage

Ok, see that image alongside this article? That alone sparked my interest in this game that will be released on the App Store February 7th. The start of the video is a bit ho-hum and made me think, "Oh, a Rampage clone?", but then this concept is taken and twisted into its own thing. Have a watch of the trailer and tell me that doesn't at least look fun for a play or two. I mean tell me you wouldn't want to grab an ICBM and whack a building to destruction with it... yeah, that's what I thought.…

Swing King Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
Swing King Review

Being a monarch must be taxing. Oh I’m not talking about the day to day turmoil of settling disputes and playing politics, but more when you're trying to smooch your girl-frog and some evil black furball comes along and kills the mood by sucking all the stars away. That transgression cannot stand! So in Swing King, you set off trying to collect all the stars back by flinging yourself from anchor point to anchor point, trying to reach the saddle of your flying unicorn before final…

Magic Pixel Games announces Stick To It

Magic Pixel Games announces Stick To It

Magic Pixel Games has released an announcement trailer for their upcoming iOS puzzle platformer Stick To It, and it looks like it's going to be an intriguing mix of one finger gameplay and cartoon visuals. The team behind the game is made up of Boom Blox developers, which gives Stick To It a little more pedigree than your average iOS puzzler. There'll be 80 levels to work your way through, with more to come after launch in free updates. You'll be able to grab the game for nothing when it comes out, but only for the first 72 hours, after which it'll go back up to its full price of $1.99. Interestingly, Magic Pixel Games has also stated that the game will be free from microtransactions, whic…

Zen Training Review

Review Crescent Moon Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
Zen Training Review

One of the ways to think about zen is that it is the path towards enlightenment. It is training your mind to relax and be at peace. Anyone who meditates or has unsuccessfully tried to meditate will know how difficult shutting your brain off can be. That's why it's been so interesting to see games capitalize on this concept. In the news post for this game on our site, I mentioned Tetris as a game you can play without any brain power whatsoever. In fact, games like Tetris, Zen Bound, Pat…

Temple Run 2 Review

Review Imangi Studios, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Temple Run 2 Review

When faced with such a task as creating the sequel to a smash hit, you're faced with the inevitable problem of 'how do we do better than supposed perfection?'. Some buckle under the weight, others learn to refine and extend what was successful, and others... well others end up like Temple Run 2. Imangi Studios have clearly thought long and hard about how to retain the free-to-play edge of the original while enticing players towards their in-app store - all without alienating players a…

FINAL FANTASY ALL THE BRAVEST Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
FINAL FANTASY ALL THE BRAVEST Review

Final Fanasy: All The Bravest by Square Enix and Bit Groove is a love letter to the JRPG's use of the classic 'ATB' system of combat by which players must wait until each character has rested long enough before attacking again. There's a giant problem though - the concept has been taken too far and the end result is Square Enix's most self-indulgent experiment in laundering money from its franchise and those who suffer through such 'nostalgic' modern titles. Once you've selected a bat…

Firemonkeys releases dev diary for Real Racing 3

It's fair to say that Real Racing 3 is one of the best looking iOS games out there. From the moment we first saw its sleek lins and gorgeous lighting, we've been champing at the bit waiting to get our hands on the game. Well, we've still got a little longer to wait before we can drive real cars around real tracks on our iPhones and iPads, but Firemonkeys has just released a new dev diary showcasing some of the tracks we can look forward to come February. Some of the in game graphics still look absolutely stunning, and the focus on real world tracks and cars looks set to make Real Racing 3 live up to its name. We'll keep you posted as to when the game's finally going to land, but in the mea…

4x Board Game 'Eclipse' Recieving iOS Treatment

News By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
4x Board Game 'Eclipse' Recieving iOS Treatment

The 4x genre of videogames is one of those niche strategy sub genres that cultivates dedicated fans through complex and epic feeling gameplay (usually in a space setting). Think Master of Orion, or Sword of the Stars (though games like Civilization count as well). One thing that amazes me about the board game scene is the ability to take incredibly complex concepts and turn them into something you can easily sit down at a table with and play for a few hours. Now developer 'Big Daddy Creations' has taken this complex board game and allows the computer to handle all the book and piece keeping, leaving you only with the strategy to deal with. Here's a short video of the game…
