Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six®: Shadow Vanguard Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six®: Shadow Vanguard Review

Having already shown their deft skills at producing great First Person Shooters on iOS devices, Gameloft have taken up the reins for the Rainbow Six franchise with the release of Shadow Vanguard. The focus on tactical awareness is much sharper than in previous titles like Modern Combat 2 and players will need to command a squad in order to carry out their missions with ghost-like silence. Gone are the days of intense pre-mission setups requiring long tedious memorization of tactical m…

Drag Tag Smash Review

Review SmashMouth Games Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
Drag Tag Smash Review

Incorporating some sort of interaction between your gameplay and the music that sits in the background is an effective, if somewhat complicated way to engage players in what's happening in the game. Drag Tag Smash by SmashMouth Games combines interactive audio with a strange twist on the Breakout formula, but its ridiculous point scoring and driving beats aren't always enough to keep you coming back for more. The game's name isn't simply for show and players will need to drag their pa…

Twinflix 2 FREE Review

Review Franco Mellerio By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
Twinflix 2 FREE Review

Twinflix: The Falling Blocks Puzzle by Franco Mellerio is exactly what you think it is (another Tetris-like), but instead of focusing on replicating the single-player experience you'll find yourself constantly competing against opponents, be it an AI or another player around the world. Given the twin-display of the game, you'll be locked in to a portrait layout with the controls arranged in the center along your next block display. Instead of a single rotate button, two directional bu…

Bizenghast: Wicked Labyrinth Review

Review Tokyopop By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
Bizenghast: Wicked Labyrinth Review

Although not strictly a Manga, Bizenghast, an ongoing Gothic inspired comic by M. Alice LeGrow (otherwise known as Marty) is none-the-less associated with many of its trappings including cosplay. Wicked Labyrinth by Tokyopop seeks to expand the series in to the gaming frontier, but where the comic cleverly deals with the main character Dinah's need to free trapped ghosts every night, the game takes a less subtle approach. Each level places Dinah in a 'maze' complete with traps that ne…

Pizarro Review

Review Corrino Software By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
Pizarro Review

While you may not have heard about Jezzball, it's likely that if you've owned a desktop PC during the mid to late 90s that you've encountered this simple game in one form or another. Based, in part, on the Arcade classic Qix, it has seen several iterations on the App Store already however Pizarro by Corrino Software has to be the classiest version to date. The basic gameplay revolves around touching the screen to inflate circles and players will need to cover at least 80% of the scree…

ROBOT 99 Review

Review Fu-design.com By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
ROBOT 99 Review

It should come as no surprise that when the illustrator known as 'Fu' turned his hands towards making a video game it ended up featuring robots. However, ROBOT 99 isn't just a pretty face and while the game is easy to pick up and play, managing to work your way to the final levels might just test your abilities and maybe even your friendships. I mention 'friends' because ROBOT 99 has a built-in co-op feature supporting multi-touch, giving additional players a chance to manipulate the…

iStunt 2 - Snowboard Review

iStunt 2 - Snowboard Review

Although Winter may be coming to an end, there's no reason to pack in your hopes for enjoying the snow slopes with a bit of snowboarding action thanks to iStunt 2 by Miniclip. Although I should point out that anyone trying to perform the stunts in this game in real life should probably be committed, but hey... what's to stop someone from accidentally inventing a gravity reversing machine in the process. While the early levels of the 42 currently available set a fairly relaxed and mayb…

Hockey Nations 2011 Pro Review

Review Distinctive Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
Hockey Nations 2011 Pro Review

Finding a decent Ice Hockey title isn't always easy and while the 2K series certainly has its charms it's not always the most complete in its representation of the sport. Hockey Nations 2011 Pro by Distinctive Developments attempts to pack in a whole lot of features while still looking and feeling great, but a few rough edges keep it from really leading the pack. For those not already embedded in the sport, attempting to fathom how to approach the game can be challenging as there's no…

iOS Developers Band Together For A Good Cause

iOS Developers Band Together For A Good Cause

Like some sort of guardian angel, the gaming community has often shown its dedication and compassion to great causes with a fervor and spirit that's humbling. With the recent crisis in Japan developers have banded together in order to raise funds for victims in the country and as a special offer many have decided to give their games away for free while directing people to donate to charitable organizations. AppsJP.com and iPhoneGamerUK have banded together to give codes away to those who are willing to donate and the list of available games is nothing short of impressive. Due to the serious damage caused by the earthquake and tsunami in northern part of Japan, AppsJP in collaboration wit…


64th Street - A Detective Story Review

Review DotEmu By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
64th Street - A Detective Story Review

While perhaps overshadowed by its peers, '64th Street - A Detective Story' by Jaleco was an interesting addition to the popular genre of beat'em-ups cropping up in the late 80s to early 90s. Although it sports a distinctly Final Fight-like appearance, the game distinguished itself by allowing players to fling opponents in to the environment and background, changing the world while also doing grievous harm. As with any classic brawler your character's motivation for risking his life is…

KAMI RETRO Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
KAMI RETRO Review

I have to hand it to Gamevil - despite the roaring success of their collection of RPG-based titles, the company is still willing to branch out and try something way outside their comfort zone. KAMI RETRO jumps on the puzzle platform conga line by adding a slight Lemmings twist to the usual formula, however while the gameplay has its charms it's the presentation that will prove to be the make or break decision for most people. KAMI RETRO keeps things simple with a single-touch control…

The 7th Guest Review

Review Trilobyte Games, LLC. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
The 7th Guest Review

Oh yes indeed, we're not only plumbing the depths of App Store, but of gaming history itself by tackling the classic that is The 7th Guest by Trilobyte Games. Its release for iOS devices is a mixed blessing and players can expect some enhancements in the form of smoother, speedier transitions and refinements to the game's controls, but there's no denying that The 7th Guest has aged badly and what was a relatively awkward pairing of horror and puzzle elements in the 90s now feels slight…

Pirate : Cannonball Siege Review

And now for something completely different. Have you ever wished you were a pirate? Sure it would have been a hard life of punching cannonballs back at ships while defending the taverns you frequent, but no one said it would be easy. That is what pirates did right? 'Pirate : Cannonball Siege' by BLACKPIXEL STUDIO takes a step off the beaten track and while all the hallmarks of a pirat-ey lifestyle are in place, other elements like your character's Asian and Viking inspired garb are so…

Pig Rockets Review

Pig Rockets Review

What does rocket fuel, Tetris, bacon and the castle defense genre have in common? More times than not I'd say they don't really have anything in common, but if you're playing Pig Rockets by Camigo Media you'd be surprised at just how relevant they all are. Wave after wave of rocket-controlled piggies are attempting to blow up your house, barn, dog-house, mansion (and so on) and you'll need to put your Tetris skills to work in order to create barriers that will crush their advance.

Painkiller Purgatory Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
Painkiller Purgatory Review

Never has a title felt so entirely appropriate as it does for 'Painkiller Purgatory'. Despite its theme, playing the game is easily one of the more numbing, soulless experiences you could have that not only manages to poorly represent the series it comes from, but also the genre of classic over-the-top First Person Shooters. The Painkiller series has typically been defined by two factors that add up to huge amounts of fun - clever and varied weaponry and power-ups that provide a multi…
