Xtreme Wheels Review

Review Bravo By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
Xtreme Wheels Review

As far as 'extreme' sports go, motocross manages to simultaneously combine something familiar and already dangerous (motorcycling) and give it a rough, dirty and at times, spectacular edge to its antics. No wonder we've already seen developers try to capture the spirit of skill and insanity that comes with using a motocross bike, but if one game truly stands out of late it's Trials HD on the 360. Similar concepts have made their way on to the App Store in the past (Moto X Mayhem), but…

Critically Acclaimed Android Platformer Cordy Jumps Onto iPhone

Critically Acclaimed Android Platformer Cordy Jumps Onto iPhone

We're all friends here, so let's just be straight and admit it: we take energy for granted. Well, maybe not as much for granted when the electricity bills arrive… but anyway, we should be thankful we're not Cordy. Cordy has to run, jump, flip, push, and fight to power up the world. Now that's a hard day's living if you ask me. Another thing that Cordy does is take 'freemium' to the extreme. The first four levels are free, but the rest of the game - and there really is a lot more in it - is exclusive to those who snap up an in-app purchase (priced at $1.99). SilverTree Media say their new 2.5D platformer has "console quality", and with 27 levels powered by some gorgeous graphics -…


MapleStory Cygnus Knights Edition Review

Review NEXON MOBILE By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 4 months ago
MapleStory Cygnus Knights Edition Review

For those of you unfamiliar with Maple Story, it's a free to play Korean MMO that's been around for the latter half of the 2000s.  Cygnus Knights is the 2nd release of a single player version of the franchise for mobile devices, allowing play with two characters through a world full of endlessly respawing monsters. You can play either as Mikhail the Soul Knight or Oz the Flame Wizard, essentially giving you a play choice between melee combat or magic (although it takes a bit of p…

Tekken Finally Hits the iPhone, But Not the Tekken You Expect

Tekken Finally Hits the iPhone, But Not the Tekken You Expect

The long-running beat-'em-up franchise Tekken has finally landed on iPhone, but if you've been waiting for a good old-fashioned bruiser, well, hold your horses, pal, because you're still waiting. As you've probably guessed by now, Tekken Bowl ain't your typical Tekken. There are no fisticuffs to be had here at all, because - and the clue is in the name - you'll actually be playing a tribute to an old bowling mini-game in Tekken Tag Tournament. You have 3 unique characters to choose from, as well as two bowling game modes to play through - including a physics-based Puzzle mode. Game Center support for achievements and leaderboards roll in to round off the package. So, while this isn't t…


Blobster Review

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

In Blobster you control 'Blobster' who is trying to save Blobtopia from pollution at the hands of the Big & Powerful Corporation run by the evil Blobzilla. Blobster must collect Blobules - the fuel that keeps Blobtopia running - if he hopes to ever bring Blobzilla and the B&P Corporation down... and if I ever have to say Blob again, it'll be too soon. Blobster is split up into four worlds, each with ten regular levels and a few bonus levels opened by high scores. Each stage co…

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
One Man Army™ Review

So, you now own an iOS device and after all of that saving up what's the first thing you're going to buy? Something meaty, something elegant, or maybe something you can slowly plug away at? Don't kid yourself, the idea of playing a tower-defense game on the go was also in the back of your mind too wasn't it? How about a shooter? How about both? One Man Army by Chillingo and Tickled Pink Games tries to mesh the castle and tower defense genres by placing a weapon in your hands, allowing…

Qvoid Review

Review Gavina Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
Qvoid Review

Some of best puzzle games base themselves around a simple concept that, when restricted in subtle ways, presents a whole new challenge to test your reasoning and logic. Qvoid by Gavina Games is one of these types of puzzles and while the idea of rolling a cube around and matching colors may seem easy enough, something as small as a 3x3 grid can turn in to a serious mind-bender. On each of the 96 currently available stages your aim is to smoosh all the colored squares on the level toge…

Jet Car Stunts 2 On iPhone Will Include Freestyle Trick Mode

Jet Car Stunts 2 On iPhone Will Include Freestyle Trick Mode

Our chums over at Pocket Gamer have snagged themselves a rather tasty news morsel about True Axis's Jet Car Stunts successor, the rather obviously named Jet Car Stunts 2. True Axis told PG that the upcoming sequel will feature six selectable vehicles, as well as a new level editor. They also spilled the beans on the new Freestyle mode, which is apparently "like playing a skateboarding game with a car." And just like a skateboarding game, the aim is to - yep, you guessed it - pull off impressive tricks to score your way to big points. So, basically, drive crazy, and you'll earn crazy points. Simples. In case you missed it, the excellent original picked up top marks back when we reviewed i…


Curvebot Evolved Review

Review elpixo By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 4 months ago
Curvebot Evolved Review

In 1981, Taito released Qix, a game where you have to cut shapes out of a level while avoiding enemies. Once a certain percentage of the level is filled in, you progress to the next one. Qix had many imitators over the years, including a huge array of adult titles using this mechanic, but now with Curvebot, we have essentially reverse Qix. You start each level moving around the edge of a shape. By cutting through the shape, parts get lopped off, and when eighty percent or more is gone…

Space Inversion 2. Review

Some games just never seem to die. I don't mean this in a particularly nasty way, but nostalgia has a habit of bringing back games that have had their time to shine and, by now, have been explored in many interesting and exciting ways. Space Inversion 2 by Silverline Arts takes another swing at Space Invaders, adding a few modern touches to spruce up the old girl in to something not only presentable, but entertaining enough to spend more time with this classic title. For those not int…

Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty Review

It's easy to get caught up in the hype of the recent Marvel films in the lead up to the eventual cinematic version of the Avengers. While the inevitable game conversions of said movies have been less than stellar, the iOS titles have been more than playable, showing some passion for the franchise it represents. Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty by Marvel Entertainment and Sarbakan mixes things up from the expected 3D beat'em-up by giving 'Cap' a free-running experience governed almo…

The Island of Dr. Momo Is Ex-Capcom Producer Inafune's Latest Project

The Island of Dr. Momo Is Ex-Capcom Producer Inafune's Latest Project

Since badmouthing the entire Japanese game industry, Keiji Inafune has been on a rollercoaster ride of bad press and redundancy. After his ignominious exit from Capcom six months ago, however, one thing he hasn't been is idle. The creator of the Mega Man series has turned away from console and towards mobile gaming in the form of The Island of Dr. Momo. In this casual freemium title, players will take on the role of Dr Momo (Dr Peach in English), a medic aiming to create - via some genetic modification - the cutest creature imaginable. The Island of Dr. Momo will be splicing and cutting its way onto iOS this autumn in Japan, so fingers crossed for a western release, too. Here’s ho…


VineKing Review

Review Pixel Vandals Inc. By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 5 months ago
VineKing Review

Pixel Vandals describes its newest game, Vineking as based around multitasking. This is a fair assessment, but hearing that doesn't necessarily make one want to play the game, so let's delve deeper. You are the last of the Vine kings. Your planet was destroyed by a comet and now its up to you to restore life to this ball of rock. Each level consists of transforming the landscape from stone to grass with your powers. Drawing a line extends your vine to crush the lava rock, and have gra…

Review EDGE By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 5 months ago
EDGEBobby2 Review

Edge Bobby 2's real name is Bobby Bearing 2: Rerolled. Why then is it called Edge Bobby 2? Well that has to do with the developer Tim Langdell and his company Edge games. You see for some time now Tim has been sitting on the trademark of Edge games, taking to court any company that uses the word 'Edge' in a game related capacity (Edge magazine for use of its logo being the most prominent case). In June a UK court ruled against him, with one of the reasons being there has been no eviden…

9-Year-Old Designer Helps PopCap Create Allied Star Police

9-Year-Old Designer Helps PopCap Create Allied Star Police

If you weren't already aware, Electronic Arts acquired Seattle-based casual games phenom PopCap ten days ago for a cool $650 million. For that considerable outlay, the publishing giant behind NBA Jam and Dead Space picked up some of the most addictive iPhone IP around, including Plants vs Zombies, Peggle, and Bejeweled 2 + Blitz. In addition, EA will, naturally, inherit PopCap's recently formed spin-off label 4th & Battery, which is charged with producing edgier, stranger, more experimental games. Unpleasant Horse was the first creation from the 4th & Battery laboratory: unfortunately for the studio, it proved too hot for Apple to handle, and was promptly rejected. Next up from t…
