Sad Princess Review

Review Pomato Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Sad Princess Review

Never have I wanted to enjoy a game so badly as I do with Sad Princess by Perlo Games, but there's a vital spark in the gameplay that almost feels absent and what should be a smash-hit starts to fizzle early on. You play as Princess Clover, one of four card-themed princesses who have been seemingly wronged by a Prince that has broken your heart. Thankfully your sadness is your weapon and as you travel you'll be able to power up your attacks by tapping in to the sadness you steal from…

Broken Sword - The Smoking Mirror: Remastered Review

Review Revolution By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Broken Sword - The Smoking Mirror: Remastered Review

While classic adventure fans may not get much in the way of traditional point and click adventures for their iDevices, the few that do end up being released almost always feel like a special treat. Broken Sword has had a lasting legacy thanks to its incredible storyline and clever puzzles and now the sequel 'The Smoking Mirror' has been remastered for iOS devices. However, don't let the name fool you; unlike the 'Director's Cut' of the first title, this release doesn't feature much in…

Lyst Review

Review Steel Games, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Lyst Review

While the sheer number of Apps released each day can result in a lot of chaff that only serves to clog up your iDevice, it also presents a unique chance to sift through and find those rare tasty grains that you never expected. Lyst by Steel Games is an arcade puzzler with a unique chemical-based twist that will challenge your dexterity and your ability exploit combination opportunities. There are four basic elements that can be combined, resulting in various effects based on the items…

UltraDeep Review

Review ViquaSoft Co., Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
UltraDeep Review

There's a reason why games that employ the 'endless' mechanic of games tend to be very hard - the longer you play, the more repetitive it feels and challenges provide obstacles worth overcoming. UltraDeep by ViquaSoft loses sight of this balance early on and you'll be reaching depths that are completely ridiculous even without the aid of gimmicky items that can purchased to 'aid' you. Tilting your iDevice will move your stick-figure spelunker back and forth, allowing you to fall off p…

Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time Review

Review BBC Worldwide By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time Review

I, like many others around the globe, can easily say that I am a fan of BBC's epic recurring series, Doctor Who. The revival of the series has resulted in a lot of new converts to the science-fiction classic and BBC aren't willing to skip out on a chance to further ensnare their legion with video games based on the franchise. Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time is the unfortunate result of this need to reach out to a broader audience and it will take a truly dedicated fan to look past the re…

Floe — a little bear needs your help Review

Review Clickgamer.com By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Floe — a little bear needs your help Review

On the cute scale, 'Floe - a little bear needs your help' by Clickgamer rates about 8.4 Unicorns, or roughly 12.8 Fluffy Puppies in the metric system. I mean seriously, look at the icon and read the title again and tell me this isn't bordering on critical-mass amounts of cuddliness! Should you take up the challenge of helping out baby bear 'Flo', you'll need to defeat an increasingly complex series of sliding-block puzzles. Each of these puzzles are situated on a chunk of ice, with on…

ePig Rope Review

Review ePig Games Spa By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
ePig Rope Review

There's nothing quite so disappointing as attempting to enjoy a game that has received so much care and a attention, only to be cut off at the knees by the gameplay it tries so desperately to cling on to. e-Pig Rope is a fantastic concept, but attempting to complete this rope-swinging title is an exercise in pure self-hatred. The controls are quite simple to pick up and learn - your pig floats down the screen somewhat unrealistically, but this provides you with the time to tap and hol…


Burn the Rope Review

Review Big Blue Bubble By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Burn the Rope Review

Burn the Rope by Big Blue Bubble fits in to the category of devilish puzzle titles that seems so simple on the surface, but so insanely difficult to master should you decide to go beyond merely passing each level with a bronze. All you have to do is to burn the rope based image as much as possible (hopefully burning it completely), however the major catch comes in trying to keep the flame burning upright while managing multiple burn points thanks to intersecting lines. Thankfully the…

Inspector Gadget's MAD Dash Review

Review XMG Studio Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Inspector Gadget's MAD Dash Review

As a child of the 80s I have long come to terms with the fact that I was raised by my TV to be an unabashed and rabid fan of some bizarre cartoon shows. Inspector Gadget is not the least of these and after years of not hearing the siren that signifies the start of an episode I was transported back in time thanks to 'M.A.D. Dash' by XMG Studio. If the title hasn't given it away, yes this is an 'endless' runner title, though to its credit the game has attempted to extend the value of th…

Review Armor Games Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
:Shift!2: Review

In a continued effort to bring their free Flash based titles to the App Store, Armor Games have recently launched the sequel to their popular screen-flipping puzzle-platformer ':Shift:', adding in a whole lot more content and some surprisingly interesting features that could help to change how the genre is treated in the future. The gameplay hasn't shifted much from the original and players will need to flip their character between the black and white sections of the screen (inverting…

Kosmo Spin Review

Review Simogo By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Kosmo Spin Review

By now veteran iDevice gamers have come to expect the odd arcade title (or three or four or a dozen) that offers little more than a simple gameplay concept to tide them over during spare moments of the day. This isn't exactly a bad thing given that you're playing on a mobile device, but even when you're only eating snacks it's easy to fill yourself up. Kosmo Spin by Simogo Handelsbolag fits in to the snack-sized arcade category, though its immensely charming style and challenge based q…

Geared 2! Review

Review Bryan Mitchell By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Geared 2! Review

Geared captured the minds of many App Store users thanks to its unique puzzler style that combined a bit of trial and error with an easy to learn system of moving gears. Geared 2! by Bryan Mitchell and the team at PlayfulArt seeks to improve on this formula through one major improvement - the addition of a hamster. Sure, it may not sound like much, but let me just say how motivating it is to get a puzzle right and getting to watch that cute little lazy rodent being flung out of his ge…

Asphalt 6: Adrenaline Review

This really must be a happy holidays for the racing fans out there given the quality of the recent releases out on the App Store and Gameloft, never one to be left behind, has also brought out Asphalt 6, the third installment of their racing series for iDevices. By now the series has started to gain some legs of its own, slowly spreading its wings as it steps out from shadow of titles like Need for Speed and Burnout. However it seems there was a bit of a misstep and Asphalt 6 has cros…

Perfect Cell Review

Review Mobigame By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Perfect Cell Review

Sometimes the idea of classifying a game in to a neat pigeon-hole tends to break down; this isn't a bad thing at all, but when the some of the first thoughts that run through your head are, 'It's like Metroid meets Splinter Cell, but with a blob,' you know you're going to need to earn your paycheck trying describing this one. Perfect Cell by Mobigame is unique in its approach of action/infiltration style gaming and whether you opt to be the perfect killer or the perfect pacifist, you'r…
