Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty Review

Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty Review

It's easy to get caught up in the hype of the recent Marvel films in the lead up to the eventual cinematic version of the Avengers. While the inevitable game conversions of said movies have been less than stellar, the iOS titles have been more than playable, showing some passion for the franchise it represents. Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty by Marvel Entertainment and Sarbakan mixes things up from the expected 3D beat'em-up by giving 'Cap' a free-running experience governed almo…

The Island of Dr. Momo Is Ex-Capcom Producer Inafune's Latest Project

The Island of Dr. Momo Is Ex-Capcom Producer Inafune's Latest Project

Since badmouthing the entire Japanese game industry, Keiji Inafune has been on a rollercoaster ride of bad press and redundancy. After his ignominious exit from Capcom six months ago, however, one thing he hasn't been is idle. The creator of the Mega Man series has turned away from console and towards mobile gaming in the form of The Island of Dr. Momo. In this casual freemium title, players will take on the role of Dr Momo (Dr Peach in English), a medic aiming to create - via some genetic modification - the cutest creature imaginable. The Island of Dr. Momo will be splicing and cutting its way onto iOS this autumn in Japan, so fingers crossed for a western release, too. Here’s ho…


VineKing Review

Review Pixel Vandals Inc. By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 1 month ago
VineKing Review

Pixel Vandals describes its newest game, Vineking as based around multitasking. This is a fair assessment, but hearing that doesn't necessarily make one want to play the game, so let's delve deeper. You are the last of the Vine kings. Your planet was destroyed by a comet and now its up to you to restore life to this ball of rock. Each level consists of transforming the landscape from stone to grass with your powers. Drawing a line extends your vine to crush the lava rock, and have gra…

Review EDGE By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 1 month ago
EDGEBobby2 Review

Edge Bobby 2's real name is Bobby Bearing 2: Rerolled. Why then is it called Edge Bobby 2? Well that has to do with the developer Tim Langdell and his company Edge games. You see for some time now Tim has been sitting on the trademark of Edge games, taking to court any company that uses the word 'Edge' in a game related capacity (Edge magazine for use of its logo being the most prominent case). In June a UK court ruled against him, with one of the reasons being there has been no eviden…

9-Year-Old Designer Helps PopCap Create Allied Star Police

9-Year-Old Designer Helps PopCap Create Allied Star Police

If you weren't already aware, Electronic Arts acquired Seattle-based casual games phenom PopCap ten days ago for a cool $650 million. For that considerable outlay, the publishing giant behind NBA Jam and Dead Space picked up some of the most addictive iPhone IP around, including Plants vs Zombies, Peggle, and Bejeweled 2 + Blitz. In addition, EA will, naturally, inherit PopCap's recently formed spin-off label 4th & Battery, which is charged with producing edgier, stranger, more experimental games. Unpleasant Horse was the first creation from the 4th & Battery laboratory: unfortunately for the studio, it proved too hot for Apple to handle, and was promptly rejected. Next up from t…

Teaser Trailer Revealed For Square Enix's JRPG Chaos Rings II

We don't need to stress the inherent quality of Square Enix's JRPG franchise Chaos Rings again, do we? Ok, maybe we do then. Well, the original - Chaos Rings - was selected as the game of 2010 by AppSpy. 'Nuff said about that. Meanwhile, Its prequel - Chaos Rings Omega - finished 2nd in our rundown of the best games of May 2011. So far, so impressive. In the run-up to Chaos Rings Omega's launch, we reported on an advert placed in Japanese game magazine Famitsu by Squeenix, which suggested a direct sequel to Chaos Rings (I) was in the works. Lo and behold, the role-playing game specialists have only gone and unsheathed a few screenies and a trailer for Chaos Rings II, thus confirming wha…


Async Corp. Review

Review Powerhead Games By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 1 month ago
Async Corp. Review

Puzzle games can fall into the trap of slapping a new coat of paint on an old concept and trying to pass it off as something new. What they should be doing is taking that concept, creating a unique world around it and then giving the player choice as to what type of puzzle game with these mechanics they wish to play. This is what Async Corp achieves. You are a new employee at Async Corp and your job is to make packets. How are packets made you ask? By swapping colored tiles from two s…

Z The Game Review

Review Kavcom Limited By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Z The Game Review

If you grew up in the 90s and didn't know about games like Chaos Engine or Speedball, I'd say you're poorer for the lack of experience, but then again even fewer people I know seem to remember (at least seriously remember) playing Z by The Bitmap Brothers. While not a seminal release in the RTS genre, it took a different approach by focusing on the minutiae of controlling units while forming tactical strategies to outplay your AI (or real life) opponents. Kavcom Limited have brought th…

Snot-Based Arcade Puzzler Gesundheit! Sneezing Onto iPhone Soon

The developers of the excellent Road Blaster and the 5-star UFO on Tape, Revolutionary Concepts, have been working on their latest puzzler since 2007. Gesundheit! will - bless them - finally be spraying its sneeze juices all over the iPhone in the next few weeks. Gesundheit! puts players in the skin of a cute little pig with terrible allergies. When his whole village is kidnapped by bacon-loving monsters, our heroic swine has to journey through 40 levels of hand-drawn puzzles to save them. Once Gesundheit! passes through Apple's rigorous approval system, it will initially cost 99c on iPhone, before rising to $1.99 at some point in the future. Tissues at the ready: here's the vid.…


Tiny Tower Update Accidentally Adds More Bugs

Tiny Tower Update Accidentally Adds More Bugs

If you enjoyed Tiny Tower as much as we did back when our man reviewed it, naturally you'd expect to be pleased by news of an update...especially one that adds some fresh swag. That's how we felt at first, too, but sadly life just isn't that simple. NimbleBit, Tiny Tower's developers, have accidentally infested the game they were trying to patch with some horrid bugs. So, what was the update actually supposed to bring to the Tiny Tower table? Five new businesses, a brand-new VIP, frequent autosaving, sound issue fixes, and the ability to quickly scroll to the top of your tower are the main additions and tweaks to this free building-management game. A pretty beefy update, in other words,…


Bean's Quest Review

Review Kumobius By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Bean's Quest Review

Despite so many attempts, the platformer (at least in its most basic form) has only felt successful on iOS devices in a few select cases. What was once a genre you couldn't escape has become almost a risk to try and pull off for mobile devices. In order to get around some of the touch screen's quirks, Bean's Quest by Kumobius strips platforming down to its basic elements by taking control out of the players hands by making jumping completely automatic. This isn't to say your character…

Torture Bunny Review

Torture Bunny Review

This review begins with a disclaimer. If a game where you use various instruments to torture a helpless rabbit for a high score sounds awful to you, you may want to stop right here. For those of you interested or amused by this concept, Torture Bunny by Clickgamer may satisfy those dark urges within. Torture Bunny is a ragdoll physics game with a hint of strategy thrown in. There is a bunny in a cage hanging high above the ground. When you press go, he is released, and plummets to his…

Reckless Getaway Review

Review Polarbit By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Reckless Getaway Review

While I can't speak for everyone, there's nothing quite like a great car chase scene in a film. Aside from the child-like glee that comes from watching the action and destruction inherent in these scenes, there's another exciting level of knowing you're watching man and machine working in a perfect ballet for the camera. Reckless Getaway by Polarbit and Pixelbite (the developers behind Reckless Racing) have put aside any sense of reality in an attempt to create a madcap, slapstick poin…

Cut The Rope ‘Toy Box’ Update Coming Soon To iPhone

Fans of ZeptoLab’s Cut the Rope can officially rejoice. There are plush toys AND a new ‘Toy Box’ update on the way, with loads of features to sink your sweet teeth into.

Awesome Saucer Beams Down To App Store

Piloting a flying saucer into space and blowing up some alien ships is one of life's most exclusive pleasures. Sadly, we can't all be Will Smith, but Awesome Saucer on iPhone might just be the next best thing. This spaced-based dogfighter promises "unlimited levels", original music, unlockable weapons, and intuitive controls - including an inverted controls setting if you're so inclined. The 3D graphics look pretty good, too, as missile trails and spaceship engines fill the screen with neon flair. And although you can't upload any computer viruses to an alien mothership, Chromium Torpedos and Graviton Missiles mean you probably won't need to anyway. Awesome Saucer is out now on the App…
