BeamOut Review

Review Under Clouds Studio LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
BeamOut Review

Frustration, thy name is Labyrinth. Though lets not forget that there's a satisfaction in overcoming the difficulties put before us, resulting in a fist pumping cry of joy as you exclaim your victory over developers who think they can defeat the humble 'gamer'. BeamOut by Under Clouds Games takes a different spin on the concept, giving you control over a lost UFO that needs to recharge to make its way home and you'll encounter more than a few difficulties in the process while attemptin…

The Pantheon Cycle: Shrouded Aspect Review

Review Gilligames By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
The Pantheon Cycle: Shrouded Aspect Review

The act of wanting to play a turn-based strategy generally assumes a few personal traits of the person playing them, notably a sense of patience and a will to learn and understand rules and concepts that are generally counter-intuitive. Unfortunately 'The Pantheon Cycle: Shrouded Aspect' by Gilligames seems to assume you have a near infinite amount of patience and a very understanding persona to be willing to accept some of its quirks. First of which is the extended audio breaks betwe…

Dead Space™ Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Dead Space™ Review

Haters will hate, but Electronic Arts have done a lot in my eyes to show just how progressive they've become in the gaming industry and their latest release of Dead Space for iOS devices only helps to solidify this position. With Dead Space 2 dropping on major consoles and PCs this coming week, iDevice users have an opportunity to play the events leading up to the start of the new title and it's no  Sunday picnic. The controls are limited to only one setup, however much like the…

Hamlet or the Last Game without MMORPG Features, Shaders and Product Placement Review

Hamlet or the Last Game without MMORPG Features, Shaders and Product Placement Review

It's safe to say that you can get a feel of the kind of humor and style you're going to get from 'Hamlet or the Last Game without MMORPG Features, Shaders and Product Placement' by Alawar Entertainment and mif2000 just from the title. I think we'll just call it Hamlet for now, OK? In Hamlet, you play the unfortunate role of a time-traveling individual that has unwittingly managed to crush Hamlet (of the Bard's fame) and in order to prevent the future from going haywire you'll need to…

Earth Defense Force Review

Review DotEmu By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Earth Defense Force Review

Earth Defense Force is yet another collaboration between DotEmu and JALECO in their attempt to resurrect classic arcade titles for a modern generation. In this classic side-scrolling shoot'em-up you'll travel through six different stages, slowly powering up your ship before the final confrontation and unlocking additional features. This really is classic SHMUP gaming, though it's hard to say 'at its best' as there are a few quirks that make it hard to truly enjoy. Most importantly pla…

Tiki Towers 2 Review

Review GameHouse By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Tiki Towers 2 Review

While gamers await the coming of World of Goo for the remaining iOS devices it's worth exploring the alternatives as you might just find something interesting enough to hold you over. Tiki Towers 2 is the sequel to the original monkey-filled physics puzzler and the madness starts all over again as you attempt to safely wrangle these furry beasts towards each level's goal. Each level provides an initial set of hook points on which bamboo and other various structures can be built. While…

Pocket Pandemic Review

Review Lucas Gordon By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Pocket Pandemic Review

The idea behind Pocket Pandemic by Night Leaf is to infect others around the world by literally flinging it across the world (electronically) to land on various cities. However, what could have been an interesting concept is weighed down by poor gameplay matched with an almost entirely irrelevant interface. What the game really boils down to is the catapulting gameplay, where players are given various targets around the world and a wind direction and speed. At first this is fairly amu…


The Flower Shop - Summer in Fairbrook Review

Review vNovel Interactive By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
The Flower Shop - Summer in Fairbrook Review

Interactive books; choose your own adventures; or whatever you're inclined to call them are an odd category of entertainment that only just manages to cross over in to the realm of 'games' for the very reason that you can influence the outcomes thanks to your decisions. The Flower Shop - Summer in Fairbrook by vNovel Interactive barely covers the 'interactive' portion of this equation, but it should be no real surprise to point out that the story is at least interesting enough to play…


Ninja Sword Review

Ninja Sword Review

HalfBrick Studios have had no shortage of developers willing to jump on the bandwagon of Fruit Ninja, but who can blame these companies when such a simple idea remains consistently addictive well after its initial release. Ninja Sword by Bunz Software Development tries its hand at the formula, adding an accuracy-based twist that adds a bit of a challenge, but fails to capture the essence of what makes this such a fun Arcade gameplay style. Swiping on the screen will slice the boards c…


Virtua Fighter 2 Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Virtua Fighter 2 Review

Wait wait wait, before you get too excited, this is the Genesis version of Virtual Fighter 2 (VF2), so don't come in expecting crazy old-school 3D fighting madness. With that said, VF2 on the Genesis was a fairly competent fighter, emulating the fighting system available in the 3D version in a 2D arena, creating something unique and strangely enjoyable at the same time. As with all of the Genesis emulated titles you're stuck with a virtual d-pad and three buttons (none of which are cu…

Space Harvest Review

Review All-Seeing Interactive By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Space Harvest Review

It's best that you don't concentrate too hard on the story in Space Harvest by All-Seeing Interactive as it's liable to make your head hurt. Lets be honest, all I need to know in a real-time strategy (RTS) is what I need to harvest and who's trying to steal it from me - the rest is fluff to justify having crazy technology! So while you're sending off your harvesters to collect precious, precious mushrooms (don't ask) you'll need to amass a killer army of units to steamroll your way th…

3 Kingdoms TD Review

3 Kingdoms TD Review

Excuse me a moment while I get a bit geeky for a second. After enjoying the TV series of Cowboy Bebop I was excited to check out the Director's new work, Samurai Champloo. Just like the first show this anachronistic, hip hop inspired show just oozed with style, even though it wasn't a culture I was particularly invested in. 3 Kingdoms TD by Joymaster shares a similar enthusiastic, over-the-top style that practically assaults you from the moment you jump in, but amongst the chaos is a c…

Ball Slam Fantasy Tournament Review

Review Zed Worldwide By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Ball Slam Fantasy Tournament Review

You have to be pretty ballsy (get it?) to decide make a brick-breaker based title these days, let alone one that's genuinely entertaining, but it seems that Zed Worldwide were up to the challenge and the result is Ball Slam Fantasy Tournament. In what is essentially an update of the 2009 release of Ball Slam Fantasy, players are pitted against what appears to be a fairly traditional brick breaking title, but after a few levels it's clear that you'll need to think outside the box to su…

Cave Bowling Review

Review Donut Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Cave Bowling Review

After a while it's almost comforting to play a game by Donut Games, if only because you know almost exactly what you're getting in to before you even load the game. After loading up Cave Bowling I'm greeted by the same menus, the same options and the same 3-star system common to just about every one of their games, but once you get in to the game it's clear to see that Donut Games are learning some new tricks. Cave Bowling is all about smashing a ball across the screen after setting a…

Everybody Hates NASA: Pro Review

Review Inert Soap By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Everybody Hates NASA: Pro Review

Sometimes you have to wonder if you get what you deserve when you make a wish and it's eventually answered. I often wish for developers to try their hands at something whacky and out of the ordinary, if only to give me something interesting to review. Everybody Hates NASA by Inert Soap could certainly be defined as 'whacky' and 'out of the ordinary' and while it's not a perfect game, the way in which it seems to be able to mash seemingly disparate elements together is impressive. At i…
