New Bust-A-Move Review

Review TAITO Corporation By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
New Bust-A-Move Review

After the success of Bubble Bobble and the Puzzle Bobble series, it's no wonder TAITO have been riding the backs of these ultra-cute dragons in an attempt to spin more cash. New Puzzle Bobble is the latest iteration of the three-match bubble popping titles and after what seems like an eternity these dragons have learned a few new tricks to keep things a little more exciting. Foremost of these is the ability to 'hold' bubbles to swap with the currently active colored orb, allowing play…

5 Million Views! A Special Presentation

5 Million Views! A Special Presentation

Over the weekend our YouTube Channel hit 5 million views and is already climbing its way to the next million views. In celebration of this momentous milestone I decided to give the community what it wanted - a live 'review'. Now this won't be a regular occurance as I don't believe it's a valid way to judge a game, but I'm sure you'll agree it has its moments and it can be fun to watch someone fail miserably without the protection of post-editing to make them look so godly! The full review of Etolis Arena will be available in the next day or so, but for now, please enjoy the rambling gameplay preview!…


Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden FREE Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden FREE Review

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and it quacks like a duck, then it's probably a duck. Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden is exactly what it sets out to be, a Zelda-like; and to perfectly frank, it doesn't do a bad job of it either. Despite walking a line that straddles originality and shameless parody, Gameloft's latest title remains engaging despite some questionable flaws. Jumping in to the game is relatively simple, especially for those familiar with similar 3rd person action…

League of Evil Review

Review Ravenous Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
League of Evil Review

League of Evil by Woblyware and Ravenous Games makes me angry. I'm angry because League of Evil is yet more proof that we can have fun platformers on iOS devices, but so few manage to make something as simple as running and jumping genuinely fun to play. After a brief introductory level explaining your controls, you're thrown in to the world of a super agent and his quest to kill evil scientists across the world. Each level places you in to a gauntlet of traps, spikes, turrets and ene…

Thief Lupin! Review

Review BLUE WIND By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Thief Lupin! Review

Thief Lupin! by BLUE WIND exists in a bizarre world of its own that seems to be built out of polarizing forces. Let me qualify that in saying that for each aspect of this game that is absolutely fantastic, one equally terrible or frustrating aspect seems to exist. Because of this, players will either come to love or hate Thief Lupin! depending on which positive or negative traits end up weighing the most for them. Sporting a 'single button' system of simply touching the screen, Thief…

Wild Frontier Review

Review KTH By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Wild Frontier Review

After a while the seemingly endless stampede of Action-RPGs being converted from the Korean mobile phone market starts to feel like a bland, monotonous Ferris-wheel of boredom. What should be an exciting and in-your-face approach to RPGs is eventually drained of all of its fun and is replaced by going through the same motions over and over. With this in mind, Wild Frontier by KTH has a lot of doubts to dispel, but after a while it was clear that this game could actually be a positive s…

Battleheart Review

Review Mika Mobile, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Battleheart Review

Mika Mobile have seemingly made it a habit to explore simple ideas while polishing them in a way that's ideal for mobile gamers. Their latest title Battleheart is certainly no exception and players will have the chance to manage four heroes as they battle foes in real-time combat, earning treasures and powerful skills as they continue on their quest. Swiping and tapping forms the main system of control for your adventurers. Each one can be selected individually and either moved or giv…

Devil May Cry 4 refrain Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Devil May Cry 4 refrain Review

Almost 3 years ago to the day US gamers were able to play CAPCOM's fourth title in the Devil May Cry series on major consoles. While still not as critically acclaimed as the original Playstation 2 brawler, it carried on the traditions of the series while adding a fresh twist to the gameplay. Now iOS gamers can also get their hands on 'Devil May Cry 4 refrain', but with its diminished graphics, gameplay and storyline it's a far cry from the devilish title it could be. Players are given…

Top 3 iOS Games of January 2011

Toplist By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Top 3 iOS Games of January 2011

And so it begins! January kicks off the year by bringing things down to a mellow level compared to last month, but it has certainly had its highlights. Being the first of many videos to come, we're hoping to improve the process, but for now I thought I'd provide a minor insight in to the selection process. Firstly we have restricted our choices to those titles we have been able to review - this means our list isn't definitive, so if you believe we've missed something critical, let us know! Secondly, games released on the cusp of a new month (within a few days of the month ending) will be grouped in to the following month - this is to cover the possibility of weekends/holidays interfering wi…


Liberty Wings Review

Liberty Wings Review

In what may be a fairly unpopular sentiment, it has to be said that much of the gaming crowd surrounding the App Store has a relatively skewed sense of 'value' when it comes to the content in games. The perpetuation of this need to provide lots of content for little money is certainly great for the consumer, but it does result in some odd aberrant titles like Liberty Wings by Digital Reality. In what is ostensibly a fairly classic shoot'em-up (shmup) title, Liberty Wings seeks to appe…

Road Blaster Review

Review Revolutionary Concepts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Road Blaster Review

It's never too long before the 'interactive movie' genre of games get a chance to shine again on newer media devices and after the previous porting of Cobra Command, developer Revolutionary Concepts has moved on to another Arcade title by Data East - Road Blaster. In what essentially amounts to a plot based around revenge, you'll take control of a lean-mean fighting machine as you attempt to take down the biker gang that killed your wife. Much like any interactive movie, the controls…

Surveillant Review

Review Recluse Industries By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Surveillant Review

One of the joys of the many daily releases of games on the App Store is stumbling upon unexpected titles that are refreshing, original and curiously addictive. Surveillant by Recluse Industries combines the simple challenge of exploring maze-like arenas while avoiding detection from the ever-vigilant surveillance camera and its deadly laser to create a challenge that requires quick thinking and responses to survive each level. Initially the game takes things fairly easy, providing a v…

Legendary Wars Review

Review Liv Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Legendary Wars Review

Do you happen to have a friend that you hold dear that also happens to have an incredibly annoying personal trait? It could be something as simple as the way they laugh or even a bad habit, but regardless of it you still call them a friend. Legendary Wars by Liv Games is the gaming equivalent of that sort of friend; it's surprisingly refreshing and well considered as far as castle defense games go, but it has one heck of an annoying trait that may make it hard to wholly enjoy. Case in…

Grim Joggers Review

Review 10tons Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Grim Joggers Review

Given the overwhelming amount of endless runners over the last year I thought it would be a long time before I'd be able to recapture the joy of exploring dangerous environments while showing off my precise skills in timing. After loading up Grim Joggers by 10tons I realized how wrong I was as I immediately devoured this game whole. Grim Joggers seems to hit all the right buttons when it comes to eliciting a smile as you begin your perilous journey with a pack of health-obsessed nuts…

Tiki Totems 2 Review

Review Rafal Staszewski By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Tiki Totems 2 Review

Physics puzzlers are hardly in short supply on the App Store and trying to jostle for a front-seat in that crowd takes a special game that out-shines its opponents in some key way. Tiki Totems 2 by spokko doesn't just try to stand out by having a lot of levels, or several unique gameplay modes, or clever puzzle designs, OR a level editor to share levels with friends; no, instead it combines all of these in order to explode to the front of the pack. The basic gameplay will be familiar…
