Star Battalion Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Star Battalion Review

It seems like the release of Apple's most recent iDevices has lit a fire underneath Gameloft and while not every recent release has been a winner it's hard not to be impressed by them. Star Battalion is their latest App Store release and it's hard to express how hard I've fallen for this space fighter pilot sim. Shades of classic Lucas Arts titles like X-Wing and Rogue Squadron along with other Nintendo classics like Star Fox are immediately recognizable in Star Battalion, but instead…

Panzer Elite Review

Review EASY Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Panzer Elite Review

Did I miss the memo where 'Easy' now means 'keep restarting until you figure out what the developer intended'? Don't mistake Panzer Elite by EASY Inc. for the regular sort of castle defense titles out there as your goal isn't to merely crush your enemy, but to sit there countering his units until you max out your upgrade score and then win. This isn't exactly covered in the tutorial - which I might add is merely a help screen with a handful of screens highlighting interface elements t…

Bonecruncher Soccer Review

Bonecruncher Soccer Review

Comparing Bonecruncher Soccer by Distinctive Developments to its inspiration Backbreaker Football is not unlike that of comparing Veggie Samurai to Fruit Ninja. When playing Bonecruncher you can't help but feel that you've been here before and while there are some changes it all feels skin-deep. However, you can't hold a good idea down and comparisons aside Bonecruncher is a challenging game to master and unlike American football where brutal tackles are a norm, having your legs swept…

Cartoon Wars 2: Heroes Review

Review BLUE GNC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Cartoon Wars 2: Heroes Review

When you look back at BLUE GNC's previous Cartoon Wars and Cartoon Wars-Gunner titles, 'Cartoon Wars 2: Heroes' seems like the obvious next step. While the combination of beat'em-up and castle defense gameplay elements don't mesh terribly well, it's an interesting way to try and break up the monotony inherent in these sorts of games. Both the defense and beat'em-up sections will take some time to get used to and you'll need to prepare yourself for some fairly humiliating losses in ord…

HM tank Review

Review CLOUDWALKER By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
HM tank Review

The premise of HeavyMetalTankBattles by CLOUDWALKER is a simple one: You must defend your base from enemy tanks before running out of tanks to defend with. However despite the simple idea and the fun retro pixel-art and sprite style visuals, the controls and AI leave more than a lot to be desired. In particular players are only given one control system and I was at a loss as to how to hold my iDevice. To move your tank you need to tap the sides of the screen corresponding to the direc…

Robin Hood - Archer of the Woods Review

Review Clickgamer.com By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Robin Hood - Archer of the Woods Review

Clickgamer's latest bite-sized title places you in the role of 'Robin Hood - Archer of the Woods' as he attempts to defend a poor village from an army set on destroying it.  Bow-defense titles are a hit or miss genre (what's with my puns this week?) and this is partly due to the rather loose control scheme they tend to share. In Robin Hood all you need to do is tap and slide your finger back to aim and set the power of your shot and while this isn't specifically new, I do like th…

ARDefender Review

Review int13 By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
ARDefender Review

Alternate Reality (AR) titles usually aren't easy for us to review thanks to our video setup, but an exception had to be made for ARDefender by int13 as it just looked too good to be true. While some expectations weren't met, the first time I loaded up the game and witnessed the AR features my jaw simply dropped. However a little setup is required first and you'll need to print out or otherwise use a display showing a distinct pattern that the game can recognize. Once the game recogni…

The Secret of Grisly Manor Review

Review Fire Maple Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
The Secret of Grisly Manor Review

The Secret of Grisly Manor by Fire Maple Games is a puzzle adventure title of the style most people will easily compare to games like Myst. While the 'pure' Adventure genre saw a sharp decline some years ago, a recent revival in the form of bite-sized episodic challenges has helped to bring this classic genre to the foreground again. We're not talking about hidden-object style games here either; no, this is all about taking abstract situations and puzzles and attempting to make the pi…

Blind World Review

Review Dmitriy Kuzmenko By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Blind World Review

In the interest of full disclosure I will point out that Blind World by Dmitriy Kuzmenko was not reviewed on release as its crashing issues made it an impossible game to fairly review. However after a recent patch the game was finally made playable and this beautifully designed puzzler has been given a chance to shine. In each level of Blind World your objective is to carefully and with purposefully explore the world around you in order to reach a preset 'point' value for your actions…

Game Dev Story Review

Review Kairosoft Co.,Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Game Dev Story Review

Perhaps it's something about working as a reviewer or perhaps it's just being a huge fan of gaming in general, but Game Dev Story by Kairosoft has me hook, line and sinker. That's right, my name is Andrew and I'm addicted to Game Dev Story. The first thing to point out about GDS is that it clearly seems to have been developed for mobile phones in general and not iDevices specifically. The game is for the most part driven by menus and selectable options, though this is streamlined a li…
