Mahjongg Dimensions Review

Review Backflip Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Mahjongg Dimensions Review

Mahjong, or more specifically 'Mahjong solitaire' has been a computer game staple for a long time now though it has remained relatively unchanged throughout its history, developing a few minor variations involving the pattern that's used. Some may already be familiar with Mahjongg Dimensions (sic) and its attempt at breaking out of the usual '2D' layout thanks to Facebook, but Backflip Studios has brought the game to the App Store, giving you a chance to play this classic game with a t…

Zombie Runaway Review

Review Com2uS USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Zombie Runaway Review

It was sort of inevitable and I'm certain it's not the first, but zombies and endless runners have collided in Zombie Runaway by Com2uS. Regrettably there's not a lot on offer and while the prospect of earning bonus items is enticing it still feels like another runner to throw on the pile. Instead of the traditional side-scrolling platformer, players are placed in a vertical orientation while running up the screen to an infinite horizon, dodging gravestones by tapping left and right o…

Sky Combat Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Sky Combat Review

With so many shoot'em-ups (SHMUP) taking the fantasy/over-the-top bullet-hell approach of late, it's great to see a title like Sky Combat from Alien Worm and Chillingo pulling things back to a slightly more realistic level. That isn't to say Sky Combat is strictly about realism, but it treads a delicate balance that forces players to react quickly and efficiently without needing to worry about memorizing various bullet patterns. Over the course of the short campaign you'll not only co…

Starfront: Collision™ FREE Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Starfront: Collision™ FREE Review

Please Note: Due to Gameloft's new release system, the title is only free as a 'demo' with an in-app purchase unlocking the rest of the content. This does require an internet connection of some kind for your device, however given that this requires 3rd Gen or higher iOS device, this should be available in one form or another. The current release price is US$6.99 - please adjust accordingly for your region and be aware that sales/updates could affect this pricing regularly. As a genre,…

Sticky Review

Review Clickgamer.com By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Sticky Review

Take two crazy scientists; add one abandoned lab; a dash of megalomaniacal hubris; and a whole lot of good intentions and you end up with Sticky, an orange blob who's sole existence seems to be in generating the goo he's made of. As results go, it's not exactly the infinite well of energy I'm sure they were after, but when another experiment goes wrong it's up to the blob to keep the messy black-goop under control. In each level you'll need to guide Sticky around the screen, bouncing…

JellyCar 3 Review

Review Disney By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
JellyCar 3 Review

The JellyCar series has finally spawned a new sequel and unlike 2009's deviation in style, this release by Walaber and Disney has returned to the whacky time-trial racing in the (now) free original title. With little more than your moxxy, a world made out of jellow and a few power-ups, you'll need to take on a variety of levels in an attempt to complete them in the fastest time possible. Tapping the sides of the screen will accelerate or brake in the direction indicated, while tipping…

The Blocks Cometh By Halfbot Review

Review Halfbot By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
The Blocks Cometh By Halfbot Review

Don't mind the déjà-vu, it's not just you - we've been here before... quite literally; though this time The Blocks Cometh has been released by its original creators from Halfbot. However the developers aren't without their sense of humor and what started out as a relatively simple, yet fun Flash game, has bloomed in to a collaborative work that has partnered up several companies in an effort to create something wonderful. Much like The Incident from late last year, you'l…

Poker With Bob - Live Hands-On Preview

News By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Poker With Bob - Live Hands-On Preview

There was a point at which Poker (especially Texas Hold'em) was nigh-on impossible to avoid - but not without good reason... it's a fun game to play, especially with friends. Video games went a long way to provide an experience similar to that of playing with real people, but in many cases it either lacked personality or was intentionally obtuse to add difficulty to the game. Poker With Bob by Scary Robot strips things back by pitting you against a single opponent, 'Bob', but in a neat twist he has been professionally animated by industry specialist Dustin Adair to not only add life and realism to the character, but to provide a bit of humor as well. The game's set to launch on Friday the…


Ninja Ropes Extreme 2 Review

Review Sarkscape Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Ninja Ropes Extreme 2 Review

Ninja Ropes Extreme by Sarkscape Games started out its life as a simple web-browser game compatible with Safari on iOS devices. High praise was given to this physics-based endless title in the form of a musical number in the Dr. Horrible commentary and now the sequel has hit the App Store with a native application. Armed with little more than two ropes, your ninja must make his way as far to the right as possible, swinging between gears while making use of or avoiding areas of force t…

Puckerz! Review

Review Groundbreaking Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Puckerz! Review

Being a dedicated gamer can be tiring, not in the sense that it's physically demanding, but sometimes the long bouts of concentration can be draining. This is where casual games tend to fill the gap, providing a fun, mindless way to enjoy your spare time without the same demands that other titles expect of you. Puckerz! by Groundbreaking Games is like a breath of fresh air, providing gameplay that requires nothing more than your willingness to keep smashing shiny objects in an attempt…

Hungry Shark - Part 3 Review

Review Future Games of London By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Hungry Shark - Part 3 Review

Future Games of London have placed Hungry Shark back up for a third spin on the App Store and for those already familiar with this vicious free-roaming title you now have a chance to take on an evil genius in his secret lair. Where the first release had its moments of fun, it was ultimately fairly short and limited in its scope. Part 3 goes a long way to resolve this problem by providing a much larger area to play with and challenging obstacles to overcome in order to get there. Cont…

Extreme_Formula Review

Review GOGN Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Extreme_Formula Review

Slick graphics, speedy racing and a futuristic theme are all well and good, but when it comes down to it a player needs to be able to feel like they're in control of their car when playing a racing title. It seems like a fairly obvious point, but Extreme Formula by GOGN Entertainment falls short of the mark and new players are bound to scratch their head as they try to work out what they're doing wrong. This is, in part, thanks to an interface that is cumbersome by design and the init…

Crystal Soul Review

Review HuaXu Culture Creative By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Crystal Soul Review

It was only a matter of time before someone else decided to emulate the gameplay of Bloody Fun Day by Urban Squall, but the dismal conversion to the App Store left the doors wide open for someone else to exploit. Crystal Soul by HuaXu Culture Creative is a new take on this turn-based puzzler concept, though those unfamiliar with its source material may find themselves out of their depth. Each of the 20 currently available levels presents players with a set of objectives to complete be…

Bad Air Day Review

Review GameHouse By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Bad Air Day Review

Much like their principle subject, fart-related games are a lingering, distasteful blemish on the App Store, yet it seems their continued success is assured as many people (especially younger audiences) are suckers for a bit of potty-humor. Bad Air Day by GameHouse tries to figuratively clear the air, restoring a bit of demure elegance to what is still a bit of a faux pas. Artie, the main character, is an elevator operator at a swanky hotel, however he has also made the deadly mistake…

Karoshi Review

Review YoYo Games Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Karoshi Review

The concept of Karoshi (karoo-shi) is not generally considered a very amusing one as it quite literally means to work yourself to death, however in the world of video games we often work hard to avoid dying in order to win. Developer Jesse Venbrux has an obsession with changing this dynamic and iOS gamers may already be familiar with his work on They Need To Be Fed, but when it comes to self-annihilation the Karoshi series is where the theme truly shines. For those who haven't played…
