Elder Sign: Omens Review

Review Fantasy Flight Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Elder Sign: Omens Review

It's hard to be a fan of board games and not be aware of US based publisher Fantasy Flight Games; not only have they worked with some of geekdom's most treasured franchises, but they've delved in to the dark depths that is the Lovecraftian Mythos and produced some truly chilling games. One of their latest is a standalone card game dubbed 'Elder Sign' and iOS gamers can now get their hands on a digital version tweaked for the platform under Elder Sign: Omens. The premise is a simple on…

Mad Rush Review

Noop always wanted to be a galactic racer like his father, and now that the evil Mr. Storm is trying to attack Earth, he has a chance to make his dream come true... by farting! It turns out that the propulsion system of galactic racing is of a more organic variety. Mar Rush has you versing a number of racing opponents. To move on, you need to win all three race types; diehard, slalom, and nitro. All are variations on the same idea. When the flag turns green, press the fart button whic…

Blueprint 3D Review

Review FDG Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Blueprint 3D Review

Solving a jigsaw puzzle is a pastime that has survived for generations and may well continue to see its appeal in to the future as fans of the simple time-waster test their observation skills to match and piece together beautiful images one jagged piece at a time. Blueprint 3D by FDG Mobile Games pushes the limits of the concept by taking imagery and blowing it up in to dozens, if not hundreds of fragments ballooned out in to a 3D space and it's up to you to reassemble it in mere secon…

Colourful Endless Flyer Whale Trail Getting Challenge Chapters and Additional Levels In Update

Popular iPhone infinite flyer Whale Trail will recieve a 'major' update in around ten days' time, which will - among other things - introduce all-new challenge chapters to supplement the game's Endless mode. The planned upgrade will also mark the arrival of an additional 32 unlockable levels. And if you're feeling rather lazy or your skills simply aren't good up to the task, you'll be able to grab some of them by splashing the cash on in-app purchases. Whale Trail floated into the App Store back in October and earned a respectable 4/5 at review. We noted that its 'stellar level of presentation; clever level layout variation; and simple controls' make it worth checking out. You can pick…


Corpse Granny Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Corpse Granny Review

Most grannies already have one foot in the grave. One has to wonder if becoming a zombie starts to reverse the aging process. If anything, it might make them more agile in death than they were in life. It's not just grannies that have risen from the grave in this game however. The undead are spreading like a plague, and with a set of well placed fireballs, you can help put them back to rest. Essentially the game is cut the rope. Each level will have zombies to exterminate and fireball…

Review infinity pocket By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Flick Home Run ! Review

Sometimes you want nothing more than an excuse to waste time and fill the dull moments in the day with something more interesting than what's happening around you. This could be called antisocial behavior, but sometimes you don't want to try to make friends with the smelly shirtless guy riding the bus with you. Insert Flick Home Run! by infinity pocket; an arcade-style home run title that proves to be addictive mostly thanks to its satisfyingly simple, but visceral controls. All you n…

Shantae: Risky's Revenge Review

Shantae: Risky's Revenge Review

Shantae is a half genie. She finds herself on a quest to travel all over Sequin Land to stop the evil pirate wench Risky Boots, who has stolen a magic lamp capable of terrible power. Predictability aside, what we have here is an old school platformer as you travel left or right from screen to screen, collecting items, defeating enemies, and engaging in boss encounters. Platformer fans should feel right at home. The game uses an on screen joystick and buttons. Shantae can move left or…

16 New Levels Available To Download In Cube-Puzzler Edge

If you'll pardon the pun, please, readers, developers of Edge Mobigame appear to be on a bit of a roll lately. Firstly, they finally obtained the trademark to the term 'Edge' in May after one of the longest and most bitter legal disputes in mobile gaming history. Secondly, they released Edge Extended, a pitch-perfect iPhone sequel to the aforementioned cube-shifting puzzler. It's good to see, however, that Mobigame haven't forgotten their roots throughout this purple patch, as the company have just issued an update to the isometric brainteaser Edge. For those of you who found the pace of the 48 levels that comprise the Edge Challenge too easygoing, news that 16 additional stages of great…


Princess Punt Review

Princess Punt Review

What if a developer was to take angry birds, and fashion an RPG system around the addictive, flinging gameplay? What is the RPG system incorporated included shades of unique classes such as fighters, lancers, archers, and wizards, that all had their unique methods of attack? What if each level had multiple difficulty settings that unlocked more interesting loot and experience, and what if these special items recovered could be leveled up and mastered for more damage? Sounding good? Wel…

Janryumon PLUS (Mahjong) Review

Review NCSOFT By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Janryumon PLUS (Mahjong) Review

Janryumon by NCSoft is simultaneously the most amazing and the most frustrating game I've played on an iOS device and this includes games I've either praised like a gibbering fan-boy or scalded for mistakes that go beyond basic flaws. This is because Janryumon is a client to play Reach Mahjong online against other players around the world, but more importantly the gameplay behind Mahjong is so rich - is so complex - that unless you are practiced in the game already, you WILL fail and f…

Review Uppercut Games Pty Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
EPOCH. Review

When small indie game studios boast about their prior professional experience it's generally a PR move to inspire confidence in what they're presenting. What really counts is the final product and in the case of Uppercut Games and their release of EPOCH., the experience and polish that comes from their years in the industry really shows in almost every aspect of the game. You play as an AI controlled robot (think slightly less horrifying than a Terminator, but no less deadly) with a m…

Asteroids: Gunner Review

Review Atari By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Asteroids: Gunner Review

The original Asteroids by Atari is easily recognizable as one of the forefathers  of Arcade gaming that has eventually led to common genres like the twin-stick shooter. The fact that the iOS ended up with such amazing titles like Space Miner: Space Ore Bust and Meteor Blitz by restoring some of the classic formula only goes to show how far-reaching the concept came to be. With Atari celebrating Asteroids 30th year out of the Arcades (the Atari 2600 first saw the game in 1981), it'…

Review Crescent Moon Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Evertales Review

Evertales by Crescent Moon Games and Thunder Game Works sounds like the perfect storm of experience developer, experienced publisher and a great concept as the two companies seek to bring a Trine-like experience to the App Store. However, much of the game can be characterized by a pervading sense that everything has been cut short just before anything interesting happens, making it tease of a relatively short game. Each of the game's six worlds are split in to two stages, ended firstl…
