Heroes of Kalevala Review

Review 10tons Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Heroes of Kalevala Review

Heroes of Kalevala by 10tons is not your typical three-match game and in a way it reminds me of something like ActRaiser on the SNES. It's not the best direct comparison, but much like the SNES title, Kalevala mashes two seemingly unrelated genres together and ends up with a surprisingly coherent title as a result of it. There are two phases to the gameplay, with players earning gold via three-match battles on complex and varied boards and then spending this cash on their virtual citi…

Stoneship  Review

Review Cyan Worlds By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Stoneship  Review

As the developer Cyan Worlds puts it, Stoneship, the latest game from the people who brought us the gaming classic Myst, is a lighthearted new puzzle title that seems almost at odds with their previous serious adventuring style. However, should you skip out on playing Stoneship out of some odd form of elitism, you'd be doing yourself a disservice. For a game that revolves around turn-based strategic exploration to optimize your pirating operations and defend it from against fellow pir…

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Real Soccer 2011 Review

Real Soccer (or Football for those of us in normal countries) 2011 is this years update to Gameloft's sports franchise and much like the other Real 2011 titles this one attempts to take full advantage of the new graphical capabilities on offer in new iDevices. But we'll get to the graphics in a bit as first and foremost the game needs to be playable before graphics concern us. In particular this title has opted for some interesting changes in the control scheme and players will need t…

Yes, FIFA 11 has hit the App Store. Wrapping your head around the game's controls is going to be the first big hurdle for anyone jumping in to FIFA 11 as the days of simple pass, kick and tackle are quickly being replaced by advanced maneuvers that give you…

Van Pershing Review

Review ECO Pawel Jarosz By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Van Pershing Review

Van Pershing by The Oak Team is probably best described as yet another take on the Zombieville USA / Inkvaders style of horizontal beat'em up action. Van Pershing (the non-union ethnic alternative to Van Helsing) is out to thwart 'generic evil' of 'evil place' and as you progress you'll not only pack heavy amounts of firepower in the form of weapons, but also a few magical abilities to turn the tide. The controls will be familiar for those who have played these games before, with butt…

Shadow Runner Review

Review Wode Mobile By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Shadow Runner Review

If N+ and Braid made babies and one of them was an arcade game, it might look and play a little like Shadow Runner by Wode Mobile. All you have to do is make it to the exit, but there's a catch - copies of yourself are constantly spawning and should you touch one before the exit opens it's game over. Shadow Runner pulls this off with absolutely minimalistic controls, with buttons to move left and right and a jump. Players can wall jump and flip over obstacles if they wish and a small…

Still Pond Review

Review Tapnik By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Still Pond Review

Still Pond by Tapnik is a free title, so feel free to queue up the download while I run through this review. I'm just that confident that you'll get a smile or two out of this quirky whack-a-mole style game. Still Pond is best described as subversive; what looks like a simple zen-like experience of tapping leaves before they interrupt the stillness of a perfectly calm pond is certainly so much more. Soon those leaves will turn in to rhinoceros and those rhinoceros will turn in to burr…

Texting of the Bread Review

Review ScrewAttack LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Texting of the Bread Review

Its hard to be a gamer and not have heard about the lads over at Screw Attack central with their game retrospective videos and top lists of gaming (and not so gaming) related topics. And so it's no surprise that this bunch of Internet dwelling gamers have finally come out with their own title and for those familiar with gaming history, Texting of the Bread might just raise some eyebrows. That's right, much like edutainment titles of the past, Texting of the Bread is an homage to Typin…

Little Hero Review

Review Klik! Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Little Hero Review

Klik! Games definitely have a motif of keeping their games simple and approachable and their latest title, Little Hero, is no exception. This bedroom warrior is practicing his martial arts moves on his collection of toys and you'll need to direct his fists and feet to knock these incoming projectiles out of the way. The game is easy to pick up and play and only requires simple swipe gestures in one of 8 directions around your character to punch, kick, jump and dodge. The moves are mix…

Monster Falls Review

Review Ticking Box Studio By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Monster Falls Review

UPDATE: A minor update for Monster Falls was released almost simultaneously with our review that has directly addressed some of our concerns. In particular, the physics remain somewhat floaty, but your monster is ever so slightly more responsive on accelerating left and right, making life much easier. Also, some casual players may have been left repeating levels more than they'd like to progress, but this has also been fixed and the difficulty scaling feels just right as players will n…
