Rogue Runner Review

Review Glowdot Productions, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Rogue Runner Review

Rogue Runner by Glowdot Production joins the fray with other runner titles like Monster Dash, giving players the ability to fire back at enemies while on the run, however instead of creatures of the night you'll be facing G-men and Aliens as you attempt to escape their high-tech facilities. Like any good runner the controls are kept simple and to a minimum, tapping the left side of the screen to jump, the right to shoot rapidly and tapping on flying enemies to send out homing missiles…

GravBot Review

Review Team Phobic By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
GravBot Review

In GravBot by Team Phobic, the story behind how an emoticon-displaying tv with wheels can manipulate its personal field of gravity and why he's collecting batteries is left up in the air. But honestly, who cares when you're having this much fun trying to help this cute balancing box to get his job done? As you'd expect from the title, your little robot can manipulate gravity to make his way around each of the game's maze-like structures, filled with lasers, deadly robots and traps rea…

BIT.TRIP BEAT Review

Review NAMCO BANDAI Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
BIT.TRIP BEAT Review

If we consider Pong to be the equivalent of a popular child actor of its time - seen everywhere, but not quite fulfilling its potential - then BIT.TRIP BEAT is that child actor's attempt to reinvent itself during the heady early 90's period, full of synth beats and slatherings of neon to hide its aging concept. That may sound harsh, but BIT.TRIP BEAT by Namco is a hard title to enjoy despite its basic gaming roots of hitting pixels back with a paddle you can move up and down the scree…

Pochi in Space Review

Review CodePlay Studios, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Pochi in Space Review

Pochi in Space by CodePlay Studios is an odd little arcade title and despite its somewhat simple gameplay of avoiding incoming objects, it remains a strangely addictive title to enjoy. It seems odd that there aren't any alternative controls, however the default system of tilting to move left and right and touching the screen to activate your 'Pochi' powers gets the job done without much fuss. There are two different basic games to choose from, either playing through an endless Explora…

Blue Defense: Second Wave! Review

Review Cat in a Box Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Blue Defense: Second Wave! Review

Blue Defense: Second Wave! by Cat in a Box Games not only continues the epic saga of Red versus Blue, but it picks up right where the (now) classic Blue Defense left off and has more than a few new tricks up its sleeve. Much like the first title you're playing through a 'defense' scenario, pitting your planet against the incoming alien hordes that would destroy your world. Depending on the chosen control scheme, players can either tilt and rotate their device to move their powerful ca…

BUBBLE BOBBLE DOUBLE Review

Review TAITO Corporation By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
BUBBLE BOBBLE DOUBLE Review

When TAITO decided to update their franchise for the App Store I had mixed feelings; I had the usual fan-boy hope that it's not 'ruined' and the inner-child optimism that they 'get it right'. And now that I've been playing Bubble Bobble Double, I have to say it's only a notch or two off being perfect. It loses these points right out of the gate for the lackluster virtual stick controls for the 'classic' mode - a direct port of the arcade release - however the addition of an AI control…

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…
