Mini Motor Racing Review

Review The Binary Mill By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Mini Motor Racing Review

Sometimes, despite everything screaming at you saying it's wrong, a game can manage to remain compelling. This is how Mini Motor Racing feels and despite The Binary Mill's best efforts the game is realistically far from perfect... and yet the next level loads up much like the last and the numbers keep going up and up and up. The first thing that grabs you about the racer is its cute aesthetic, with its miniaturized world populated with chubbily proportioned vehicles ranging from Sport…

Raccoon Rising Review

Review Romper Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Raccoon Rising Review

A game is definitely more than the sum of its parts, yet especially in reviews, we tend to evaluate certain areas separately. For instance in Raccoon Rising, a reviewer might be completely blown away by the detailed art and clever use of 3d in the visuals, but totally be put off by the mechanics of the game itself. With your home being attacked by robots, it's time to put those ninja raccoon powers to use. The gameplay revolves around vertical climbing. Tapping the screen will send yo…

Batman Arkham City Lockdown Review

Review Warner Bros. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Batman Arkham City Lockdown Review

For many gamers, Batman Arkham City has long since been put to bed, even if you spent the time to complete all the optional and downloadable content. So it comes as a surprise to see Warner Bros. and NetherRealm Studios dropping a mini-prequel to their console title this late in the proceedings, but fans like myself aren't going to look down on what is essentially a late gift (or is that an early Christmas present?). Unfortunately the timing of the game isn't terribly opportune as its…

First Touch Soccer Developers Working on Free-To-Play Follow-Up: Dream League Soccer

The developers of First Touch Soccer, now a fully independent studio called First Touch Games, have announced that they're hard at work on a football follow-up: Dream League Soccer. Based on an updated version of the engine found in the 5/5 First Touch Soccer, this new game is a free-to-play title, which will allow footy fans to build their own team to compete against some of the world's top clubs. First Touch Games's director, Charles Chapman, promises this about the new game: Improved visuals, gameplay, and loads more. Dream League Soccer as a free to play game is a new direction for us, and something we're excited about. It's not a demo, or a cut down version of another game, it's all…


Road Warrior Racing Multiplayer - by Top Free Apps and Games Review

Review Top Free Apps and Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Road Warrior Racing Multiplayer - by Top Free Apps and Games Review

Mobjoy has two hills to fight up against when a reviewer such as myself tackles a game called 'Road Warrior'. Firstly you're invoking a movie series (even if it's unintentional) that has long since entered the pop-culture zeitgeist as a cult classic, secondly I'm an Australian, making said cult classic all the more precious. So with this in mind, does a free side-scrolling racer have the goods to match up to such high expectations? OK, so this is a bit unfair, but the game's post-apoc…

NFL Flick Quarterback Review

Review Full Fat By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
NFL Flick Quarterback Review

It has only been three months or so since Full Fat made their last appearance on the App Store and once again the developer has expanded the 'Flick' series to include all 32 official teams in their new title, NFL Flick Quarterback. While the idea was first introduced in Flick Golf Extreme!, Flick QB requires players to judge their flicks to not only accurately reach their goal, but also to predict where the receiver is running to in order to score bonuses. To make things even harder t…

Über-Popular Facebook Shooter UberStrike Being Ported To iOS In 2012

CEO of Cmune Ludovic Bodin announced today at the Social Gaming and Virtual Goods World conference that Unity3D shooter UberStrike, previously only playable on Facebook, will be arriving on iOS in the near future. With its 1 million+ players gladly indulging in the simple thrill of charging around a tropical island and gibbing enemies like it’s 1995, UberStrike has become one of the most popular free-to-play games on The Social Network. Already ported to the Mac App Store with chart-topping results, Bodin believes it’s time for the FPS to make its mobile debut. An iPad version of the game has already been spotted in Cmune’s official forums, so it’s clear iOS develo…


Zen Pinball Review

Review ZEN Studios Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Zen Pinball Review

I'm seriously having flashbacks here - as a child of the 80s and a self-admitted video game nerd, the local video arcades were a veritable haven for me. While pinball games were never my forte, there was a distinct magical allure that came from the newer generation of fancy and complex titles that tried to capture the essence of a franchise, typified by the introduction of Midway's classic Addams Family pinball table. These memories are distinct and powerful, which is why I was surpris…

Major Mayhem Review

Review [adult swim] By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Major Mayhem Review

Ninjas are attacking and they've taken your girlfriend somehow. That's the premise of Adult Swim's latest foray into mobile gaming. As Major Mayhem, you need to travel deep into the heart of enemy territory and slaughter hundreds of ninjas mercilessly to make the world safer... and for booty. The game has sort of a Time Crisis / Operation Wolf vibe to it. You run from cover to cover and you pop out to mow down ninjas. Your gun is fired by tapping the screen where you want to shoot, an…

The Bard's Tale Review

Review inXile Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
The Bard's Tale Review

There's a song and a dance to be made about the release of inXile Entertainment's classic title The Bard's Tale, but then we'd have to talk about puns and that's Dave's forte, not mine. So, over seven years since its release on home consoles and eventually the PC, we iOS gamers get a chance to check out this 3D Action-RPG title. Weighing in at around 1.7 GB installed on your iDevice, you'd hope that the game was uncut, and thankfully (or is that regrettably) it is. What this means for…

W.E.L.D.E.R. Review

Review Ayopa Games LLC By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
W.E.L.D.E.R. Review

Being a welder of words admittedly sounds rather poncy. However, there's no better explanation for the task set upon you in... 'W.E.L.D.E.R.'. Luckily swapping tiles to create words is a lot of fun, and thanks to some interesting little gameplay additions, a rather unique experience among word and puzzle games is to be had. The core of the game is a mix of Bejeweled and Scrabble. Tiles can be swapped horizontally, vertically, and diagonally to create words of four letters or more. The…

To-Fu: The Trials of Chi Is Now Free, But It's Covered In Adverts

To-Fu: The Trials of Chi Is Now Free, But It's Covered In Adverts

To-Fu: The Trials of Chi has received an update which makes the game free to download. Unfortunately, that's not all the update delivers. In version 1.10.0 of To-Fu: The Trials of Chi, you will now encounter some of those intrusive in-app advertisements - even those punters who had shelled out hard cash for the game. Nevertheless, it's a good deal for newcomers, as the game and all of its in-app purchases are now free of charge. In addition, To-Fu: The Trials of Chi's developers HotGen have introduced five brand-new trials for you to play through. Tasking you with bouncing your bandana-clad bean curd through increasingly spiky levels, To-Fu: The Trials of Chi was awarded a very respectab…


Don't Run With a Plasma Sword Review

Review XperimentalZ Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Don't Run With a Plasma Sword Review

By now you're either a fan or a hater of the endless side-scrolling platformers that inevitably crop up each week on the App Store. While some innovate in varying degrees, there's a limit to how often one can take on the same challenge over and over with little motivation. Don't Run With a Plasma Sword by XperimentalZ Games doesn't try to revolutionize the genre, but instead it tries to address the base concerns of the genre with mixed success. Of note, simply jumping in to an endless…

Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies Review

Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies Review

For those yet to try out Call of Duty's interestingly themed co-op addition to their main series, the 'Zombies' titles represent a fun and frantic distraction from an otherwise serious first person shooter. Its initial conversion to the iOS platform was far from well received and its 'sequel' was appreciated even less, but is the third time a charm for Activision's Black Ops Zombies? The game tasks you with the seemingly impossible challenge of defending a map from its unholy attacker…
