INC Review

Review Pascal Bestebroer By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
INC Review

The story behind Inc is something about corporate bosses transferring their souls into robots and you needing to rescue a doctor. It didn't seem to matter once play started up and your character is jumping through pixelated vistas tagging beacons and obtaining stars on levels for a job well done. Inc uses on screen buttons. There is a left and right arrow to move, and a jump and attack button. Each level requires you to activate three beacons and make it to the end. If you beat the ti…

Extraction: Project Outbreak Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Extraction: Project Outbreak Review

One thing that never fails to amaze me about having so many developers trying their hand at breaking in to the iOS market is seeing the creativity that comes from adversity. One of the defining features of the platform is its touch screen, but it can be as much a curse as a boon. Twin-stick shooters have reached an almost amicable middle-ground of 'it works, but isn't perfect' situation, but developer ShortRound have broken out of the box with their latest work for publisher Chillingo…

Update To Physics-Based Puzzler daWindci Floats Onto App Store

For the second time in three months, one of the great masters of the High Renaissance Leonardo da Vinci is about to receive a mention on these pages. They - whoever they may be - don't call AppSpy the 'most culturally enlightened iPhone site on the planet' for nothing, you know. With a clear nod to the esteemed Italian polymath, developers Reality Twist have designed a masterfully meditative physics-based puzzler for Apple's mobile by the name of daWindci. In essence, you must pilot a hot air balloon via the iPhone's multi-touch display through 45 separate levels, searching for valuable items and circumventing electric fields along your expeditions. Those already seduced by the combinati…

Minecraft – Pocket Edition Review

Review Mojang By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Minecraft – Pocket Edition Review

Like so many others I have spent my time with and enjoyed playing Minecraft on my PC. While there are debates about whether it is a 'game' in the strictest of terms, there's no denying the sense of satisfaction that comes from setting a goal and working your way towards it. However, Minecraft - Pocket Edition... ... well there's no other way to say it other than "it's simply the free java browser version for your iOS device of choice," and this alone wouldn't be so bad, but it's also…

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.

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.

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…

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…
