2K Sports NHL 2K11 Review

Review 2K By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
2K Sports NHL 2K11 Review

NOTE: Not currently compatible with 1st Gen iPhone, iPhone 3G or original iPod Touch devices. It has been a while since we've had a chance to dive in to an ice hockey title and it's great to see 2K Sports release of  NHL 2K11 up on the App Store. Ice hockey titles haven't done spectacularly on iDevices to date and it's interesting to see 2K Sports keeping the gameplay in the arcade-style with a basic virtual stick and three button setup for pass, shoot and sprint. What makes thi…

MapleStory Thief Edition Review

Review NEXON MOBILE By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
MapleStory Thief Edition Review

Ahh MapleStory - I lost a weekend of my life to your promises of fun beat'em-up platforming only to realize I didn't have the stamina to endlessly grind away all of my spare time. Sadly the free PC MMO has infiltrated the App Store and threatened to consume my life again and I must delve in to MapleStory Thief Edition in order to warn you, our readers/viewers of the dangers within. MapleStory has always had a fairly simple platforming design and translating the gameplay to the App Sto…

Top Gun 2 Review

Top Gun 2 Review

The first title in the Top Gun series by Paramount Digital Entertainment was a fairly fun arcade shooter in the style of classics like Afterburner and while it had some issues it was certainly worthy of its franchise title. So it falls to the sequel to step up the game, adding new planes, new visuals and slightly tweaked gameplay, but with so many changes how much of the original fun action title is truly left? Top Gun 2 has at least kept the basic Afterburner style of gameplay, with…

Monorace Review

Review Craneballs Studios LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Monorace Review

With the recent release of Monorace by Craneballs Studios it's interesting to see how two different games compare when coming out at roughly the same time and with almost the same gameplay concept. Much like Gravity Runner, you'll need to complete short sprints through hazardous environments, manipulating the gravity (or in this case 'polarity') to survive with the fastest possible time. However, Monorace is far more forgiving and opts for simplicity in its handling unlike Gravity Run…

Zombie Escape Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Zombie Escape Review

Zombies, zombies, zombies. It's enough to drive a poor gamer insane! But before I lose my mind I'll take a quick gander at 'Zombie Escape', the latest release from Chillingo and ViquaSoft where you'll need to rescue as many survivors while dispatching those dastardly undead foes who just refuse to disappear. Instead of mowing down hordes of zombies or defending against incoming waves you'll need to direct survivors by drawing paths to helicopters around the current level to help them…

Kung Fu Touch Review

Review Kiube mobile By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Kung Fu Touch Review

At first glance it's easy to compare Kung Fu Touch by Kiube Mobile to other successful slashing titles like Fruit Ninja, however the developer assures me that they began work on their product before Halfbrick's release came to light. True or not, this game definitely has its own unique feel, but the stark difference in design philosophy has led this game in a far less successful direction. Your teacher has decided to put himself in harm's way in order to sharpen your Kung Fu skills an…

Checkout our Video Review for Galcon Labs: Real-time Risk type games have become a bit of a hot design choice of late, but most end up feeling like a rehash of all the others while maybe only bringing one new mechanic to the table.

Save Sylva - TD Review

Review LIMING CHEN By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Save Sylva - TD Review

For some, like myself, jumping head-long in to strategy title complete with its deep rule-set and mechanics is just the thing you need to provide a fulfilling distraction. But every now and again all you want is something simple, something polished, something like Save Sylva by clovare. There are only 6 towers in total to manage in Save Sylva, with most of the game being easy enough to complete with the first 4, however the real trick is in upgrading them. Instead of a basic 'level up…

MotoGP 2010 Review

Review iwin, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
MotoGP 2010 Review

Let's not beat around the bush - if you have a major license like MotoGP then there's going to be some minimum expectations for quality. MotoGP 2010 by I-play is, at best, an amusing title to try, but certainly not a racing title worthy of an official license. What is given as 'accessible' controls turns out to be a horrible facsimile of similar racing titles that sport a basic tilt-to-turn and two buttons to brake/accelerate and boost. Acceleration is handled automatically, however t…
