Bean's Quest Review

Review Kumobius By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Bean's Quest Review

Despite so many attempts, the platformer (at least in its most basic form) has only felt successful on iOS devices in a few select cases. What was once a genre you couldn't escape has become almost a risk to try and pull off for mobile devices. In order to get around some of the touch screen's quirks, Bean's Quest by Kumobius strips platforming down to its basic elements by taking control out of the players hands by making jumping completely automatic. This isn't to say your character…

Torture Bunny Review

Review Clickgamer.com By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 5 months ago
Torture Bunny Review

This review begins with a disclaimer. If a game where you use various instruments to torture a helpless rabbit for a high score sounds awful to you, you may want to stop right here. For those of you interested or amused by this concept, Torture Bunny by Clickgamer may satisfy those dark urges within. Torture Bunny is a ragdoll physics game with a hint of strategy thrown in. There is a bunny in a cage hanging high above the ground. When you press go, he is released, and plummets to his…

Reckless Getaway Review

Review Pixelbite By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Reckless Getaway Review

While I can't speak for everyone, there's nothing quite like a great car chase scene in a film. Aside from the child-like glee that comes from watching the action and destruction inherent in these scenes, there's another exciting level of knowing you're watching man and machine working in a perfect ballet for the camera. Reckless Getaway by Polarbit and Pixelbite (the developers behind Reckless Racing) have put aside any sense of reality in an attempt to create a madcap, slapstick poin…

Cut The Rope ‘Toy Box’ Update Coming Soon To iPhone

Fans of ZeptoLab’s Cut the Rope can officially rejoice. There are plush toys AND a new ‘Toy Box’ update on the way, with loads of features to sink your sweet teeth into. First off, you'll get 25 fresh levels to gobble up, along with a shiny new gameplay mechanic that involves bouncing the donuts around the screen and between the candy-loving monster Om Nom's lips. Players will be also able to uncover hidden pictures, drawn by the famished fella himself. The developers have shown their humanitarian side, too, by debuting a Star Key, which will enable Cut the Rope newbies to unlock all the boxes without breaking a sweat...or an iPhone. Cut the Rope found a place in our he…


Awesome Saucer Beams Down To App Store

Awesome Saucer Beams Down To App Store

Piloting a flying saucer into space and blowing up some alien ships is one of life's most exclusive pleasures. Sadly, we can't all be Will Smith, but Awesome Saucer on iPhone might just be the next best thing. This spaced-based dogfighter promises "unlimited levels", original music, unlockable weapons, and intuitive controls - including an inverted controls setting if you're so inclined. The 3D graphics look pretty good, too, as missile trails and spaceship engines fill the screen with neon flair. And although you can't upload any computer viruses to an alien mothership, Chromium Torpedos and Graviton Missiles mean you probably won't need to anyway. Awesome Saucer is out now on the App…


Zzed: match 3 cosmic shooter Review

Review Nevosoft LLC By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 5 months ago
Zzed: match 3 cosmic shooter Review

Zzed: Match 3 Cosmic Shooter is a match three shooter game. It is also a mouthful, so for the purposes of this review it will be henceforth be referred to as Zzed. You know the type by now. Clumps of colored balls are moving towards you, so to protect yourself and complete each level you have to shoot colored balls at the clump, so that three or more of the same color match up and detonate. Zzed adds some interesting features to the gameplay and also includes a story told in comic book…

QuBIT Review

QuBIT Review

As much as reviewers like to espouse the virtues of video games and (with their critics hat on) even point out why something works, there are games that come by now and then that seem to almost defy deeper analysis. QuBIT by Secret Sauce is, quite simply, a fun game to play and despite only having one mode of play it's an easy game to keep coming back to. The basic premise of QuBIT is to collect as much 'Obscurium' from the planet surface as possible, unfortunately you have a limited…

Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 Will Magically Appear On iPhone In November

Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 Will Magically Appear On iPhone In November

So, after seven novels, eight movies, 14 years, and $15 billion in merchandising sales, Harry Potter has finally hung up his wizard's wand. Or has he...? Nope, he hasn't. The bespectacled one will be returning to your (touch)screens in November 2011 for the follow-up to the 5* Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4. Craftily entitled Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7, Traveller's Tales's iPhone game will reference the fantastical goings-on at Hogwarts from The Order of the Phoenix, The Half-Blood Prince, and The Deathly Hallows volumes. Lego Harry Potter: Year 5-7 will, therefore, take us on the journey to the climactic showdown between Harry and Lord Voldemort, where, of course - Spoiler Alert! Spoile…


Block-Based Puzzler Qvoid Hits App Store On 21st July

Block-Based Puzzler Qvoid Hits App Store On 21st July

Ever heard of Gavina Games? Probably not - they haven't released anything yet. But this Spain-based team are just about ready to lay down some Qvoid on your iOS device. What's Qvoid, huh? Well, there's good news and bad news. The good news is that it looks like a pretty good puzzler. You roll a white cube along a surface of multi-coloured cubes, picking up each cube's colour and mixing it with the rest as you try and turn the whole surface black. The bad news? Teleporters, moving platforms, stubborn color blocks, and collapsing blocks mean that the 96 levels aren't going to be easy. It'll hit an App Store near you on 21st July. Not long now, folks.…


9mm Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
9mm Review

While many people are able to back a knight-in-shining-armor hero in most games, the anti-hero or at least a hero with 'dirty hands' makes for a nice change of pace. Sure it's nothing new and games have long since taken to putting you in the shoes of villains and criminals, but at least it's a far cry from the usual cute-sy or noble characters to be expected on the App Store. 9mm by Gameloft shifts gears down to this gritter plateau, placing you in the shoes of John "Loose" Kannon, a c…

Brilliant Ball-Based Puzzler Gears Down To 99c

Brilliant Ball-Based Puzzler Gears Down To 99c

While the world - ok, we Brits - continues to reel from the App Store price changes, popular puzzler Gears has been reduced to 99c. Hurrah! Crescent Moon Games's ball-roller won plenty of plaudits on release, most notably, of course, a 5 out of 5 from this very site. And with its luscious visuals and tight swipey-swipey or tilty-tilty controls, it should be easy to see why. To complete Gears is no small task, since it contains 27 levels of challenging 3D puzzles, centred on manoeuvring a ball around a screen full of cogs. Gears also features Game Center support, so bad winners can wipe their high scores in their rival’s pathetic face. Who knows when Crescent Moon will take their ga…


Burn The City Review

Review Josh Brown By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 5 months ago
Burn The City Review

It's probably unfair to keep comparing these physics destruction games to Angry Birds, but while playing Burn the City, how can you not? In an interesting spin on things, you take control of a giant fire breathing lizard. When I say control, he just sits there as you command which trajectory to shoot fire at in order to destroy all the buildings on screen. The name of the game is maximizing your score. Upon your fireball hitting a highrise, structural weakpoints become available. Hitt…

Guardians: The Last Day of the Citadel Review

Review A-Tono By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Guardians: The Last Day of the Citadel Review

It’s easy to get distracted by certain details when it comes to games on the iOS platform. Although it’s relatively easy to find a bunch of decent games, many tend to hold back on the graphics, opting for simplicity or aesthetic stylization. Few are the games that try to really push the 3D capabilities of the platform, so when a game like Guardians: The Last Day of the Citadel shows up it’s easy to get excited. Unfortunately, more of the time given towards the game&rs…

RedLynx's DrawRace Decelerates To Zero Pennies

RedLynx's DrawRace Decelerates To Zero Pennies

Finnish developers RedLynx have a good pedigree on the AppSpy circuit, what with their five-star rated Monster Trucks Nitro 2 and DrawRace tearing up the competition. In preparation for the much-anticipated sequel to the latter (due out later this month), RedLynx have rather kindly trimmed the price of DrawRace down to nothing. For those of you unfamiliar with this well-regarded iPhone title, it's essentially a cross between Flight Control and Formula 1. You trace out the perfect racing line with your finger on-screen, the speed at which you move your digits corresponding to the vehicle's acceleration and braking. In addition to reducing the game's ticket price, RedLynx have thrown in fi…
