Ninja Sword Review

Ninja Sword Review

HalfBrick Studios have had no shortage of developers willing to jump on the bandwagon of Fruit Ninja, but who can blame these companies when such a simple idea remains consistently addictive well after its initial release. Ninja Sword by Bunz Software Development tries its hand at the formula, adding an accuracy-based twist that adds a bit of a challenge, but fails to capture the essence of what makes this such a fun Arcade gameplay style. Swiping on the screen will slice the boards c…


Virtua Fighter 2 Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Virtua Fighter 2 Review

Wait wait wait, before you get too excited, this is the Genesis version of Virtual Fighter 2 (VF2), so don't come in expecting crazy old-school 3D fighting madness. With that said, VF2 on the Genesis was a fairly competent fighter, emulating the fighting system available in the 3D version in a 2D arena, creating something unique and strangely enjoyable at the same time. As with all of the Genesis emulated titles you're stuck with a virtual d-pad and three buttons (none of which are cu…

Space Harvest Review

Review All-Seeing Interactive By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Space Harvest Review

It's best that you don't concentrate too hard on the story in Space Harvest by All-Seeing Interactive as it's liable to make your head hurt. Lets be honest, all I need to know in a real-time strategy (RTS) is what I need to harvest and who's trying to steal it from me - the rest is fluff to justify having crazy technology! So while you're sending off your harvesters to collect precious, precious mushrooms (don't ask) you'll need to amass a killer army of units to steamroll your way th…

3 Kingdoms TD Review

3 Kingdoms TD Review

Excuse me a moment while I get a bit geeky for a second. After enjoying the TV series of Cowboy Bebop I was excited to check out the Director's new work, Samurai Champloo. Just like the first show this anachronistic, hip hop inspired show just oozed with style, even though it wasn't a culture I was particularly invested in. 3 Kingdoms TD by Joymaster shares a similar enthusiastic, over-the-top style that practically assaults you from the moment you jump in, but amongst the chaos is a c…

Ball Slam Fantasy Tournament Review

Review Zed Worldwide By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Ball Slam Fantasy Tournament Review

You have to be pretty ballsy (get it?) to decide make a brick-breaker based title these days, let alone one that's genuinely entertaining, but it seems that Zed Worldwide were up to the challenge and the result is Ball Slam Fantasy Tournament. In what is essentially an update of the 2009 release of Ball Slam Fantasy, players are pitted against what appears to be a fairly traditional brick breaking title, but after a few levels it's clear that you'll need to think outside the box to su…

Cave Bowling Review

Review Donut Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Cave Bowling Review

After a while it's almost comforting to play a game by Donut Games, if only because you know almost exactly what you're getting in to before you even load the game. After loading up Cave Bowling I'm greeted by the same menus, the same options and the same 3-star system common to just about every one of their games, but once you get in to the game it's clear to see that Donut Games are learning some new tricks. Cave Bowling is all about smashing a ball across the screen after setting a…

Everybody Hates NASA: Pro Review

Review Inert Soap By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Everybody Hates NASA: Pro Review

Sometimes you have to wonder if you get what you deserve when you make a wish and it's eventually answered. I often wish for developers to try their hands at something whacky and out of the ordinary, if only to give me something interesting to review. Everybody Hates NASA by Inert Soap could certainly be defined as 'whacky' and 'out of the ordinary' and while it's not a perfect game, the way in which it seems to be able to mash seemingly disparate elements together is impressive. At i…

Creatures & Castles Review

Review hiive By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Creatures & Castles Review

Do you fancy yourself to have a steady hand and god-like skills of timing? If so you might just be one of the few people Creatures & Castles by hiive intends to target as you plunge in to the labyrinthine depths of this puzzle title.The premise is a simple one that's easy to get behind as you're presented with room after room of maze-like designs that need to be explored to collect a treasure before exiting the level. The catch is that you can only move on a path that you have draw…

Sonic Spinball Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Sonic Spinball Review

Sonic the Hedgehog had an odd period in his career where he was placed in all sorts of strange predicaments and situations that have (in retrospect) been considered fairly questionable. Though strangely enough, the idea of Sonic in a pinball game wasn't much of a stretch and in 1993 gamers were given Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball (or Sonic Spinball as it's now known on the App Store) by SEGA. While regular pinball titles were often content with simple physics engines and skill-shots to…

Zombie Trailer Park Review

Review Ninja Kiwi By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Zombie Trailer Park Review

Zombie Trailer Park by Ninja Kiwi is (for those who haven't come across it before) another free Flash title that has made the jump to the App Store. Interestingly, the game has been converted with almost no changes (barring the interface) and to compensate for this the price tag is a surprisingly reasonable '$0'. The game itself is a fairly typical castle defense setup, with cash being earned over time and units being purchased to run blindly in to their opposition until you've pushed…

Farts VS Zombies Review

Review Mutant By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Farts VS Zombies Review

I'll be perfectly honest here and say that I had no idea what to expect when I jumped in to Farts VS Zombies by Mutant Games. Was it meant to be ironic? Was it simply a cash-in on keywords? In short I asked myself, 'How self-aware is this game?' and the answer was fairly clear. It knows exactly what it's doing and I'm not sure that manages to make the experience any better. You'll have to take control of Colonel John Farter (resident Chuck Norris look-alike) as he creates multicolored…

Trouble in Tin Town Review

Review From the Future, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Trouble in Tin Town Review

With so much variety available on the App Store, it's odd that more turn-based strategies haven't cropped up. Developer Jovian Minds has clearly seen an opportunity in the lack of strategic titles and has paired their game with a retinue of witty wind-up toys that are just itching to jump in to a fight. Though perhaps calling it 'strategy' is stretching things a little bit as the game often boils down to punching ranged units with your melee units and shooting melee units with your ra…

Pocket HalfPipe Review

Review NaffRobot By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Pocket HalfPipe Review

It may not be the next 'Angry Birds', but Pocket HalfPipe by NaffRobot is the kind of casual title that balances on a fine edge of skill and simplicity, resulting in a game that's immediately addictive even without the need for overly-complicated gameplay or multiple levels. There are three competitive modes along with a fourth free-skating mode to play in and the goal is to simply beat the score that has been set, unlocking a new item of clothing, skateboard or even a special move to…

DeathFall Review

Review Riverman Media LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
DeathFall Review

If you haven't heard the term 'ear worm' before, let me explain: Have you ever had a moment when you realize you have a small loop of a song stuck in your head and it's almost impossible to get your brain to skip over it? That's an 'ear worm'. DeathFall by Jurgis Games is the gaming equivalent of an 'ear worm' and while there could be something grand beyond the walls of this game, you feel like you're stuck in some never ending loop that never attempts to break free. The journey you t…
