Red Gun Review

Review Damatha Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Red Gun Review

Thanks to some power-house titles in the Arcades, 'rail shooters' have split in to several different paths, varying in style from something as simple as being able to kill enemies in one hit, to requiring skill shots or utilizing a cover system to survive punishing attacks. Red Gun by Damatha Studios takes an odd approach by pairing bullet-soaking enemies that constantly hide with limited ammunition and a sluggish cover system that can be hard to master. It's a deadly combo that makes…


FluOrama Review

Review PixelAmmo Corp. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
FluOrama Review

Wrangling germs may not sound like a particularly interesting or exciting job, but in FluOrama by Pixel Ammo you'll have to do just that as you seek to correct the mistake of a clumsy scientist who dropped a dangerous concoction of bacteria. On each stage you'll be timed and scored according to how efficiently you can manage to collect all the bacteria currently bouncing around the level and enclosing them in the goal that's provided. To do this you can tap the screen, creating or des…

Bug Heroes Review

Review Foursaken Media By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Bug Heroes Review

The castle-defense and twin-stick action genres have taken a beating for some time now, sharing their high points and low points as developers scramble to put their own spin on the concepts. Bug Heroes by Foursaken Media seeks to combine the two while going that extra step by giving players the freedom to choose between three unique characters, each with traits and skills that can drastically change the feel of the game as you progress. After spending a small amount of time playing th…

Inotia 3: Children of Carnia Review

Review Com2uS USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Inotia 3: Children of Carnia Review

The Inotia series of RPGs by Com2uS has never really been one to stand out from the crowd of Action-RPGs that have come to dominate the App Store scene, innovating in small ways, but remaining relatively generic in its approach. Inotia 3: Children of Carnia continues in the same vein as its predecessors and while it has improved compared to the last two releases, it fails to do anything truly exciting. Where the previous title used a questionable touch-based system, Inotia 3 has retur…

Altered Beast Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Altered Beast Review

SEGA have been busy in their mineshafts, digging down through the lower strata of their video game release bedrock and recently managed to recover and repackage a classic that just about everyone from the 90s should remember - Altered Beast. As a spirit summoned by Zeus to fight off the evil Neff you are able to to collect spirit balls in order to power up and transform in to were-creatures over five different stages. Each level scrolls automatically, forcing you to continually fight…

Pirates vs. Ninjas vs. Zombies vs. Pandas Review

Review PAN Vision AB By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Pirates vs. Ninjas vs. Zombies vs. Pandas Review

Yes... I know what you're thinking. Don't say it - just don't. I get it OK? I mean we've been over this dozens of times before and I honestly don't think it's ever going to end, so we don't need to continually go on about it for every game. I mean... Pandas? How are they going to compete against Pirates and Ninjas and Zombies... am I right? But in all seriousness, Pirates vs. Ninjas vs. Zombies vs. Pandas (PvNvZvP) is what it is - a physics based puzzler involving things being shot at…

Grimm Review

Review ROBOX Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Grimm Review

Grimm by ROBOX Studios is a quirky platformer that places style before gameplay, wrapping itself up in a cloak of macabre black and white Victorian-inspired etchings that are offset by the amusing premise of needing to control a carriage to return a lost baby back to its uncaring parents. The setting is quite bizarre, but charming at the same time and not unlike an abstract children's novel. This is further reinforced by the poetic musings between each level that act as story-bridge b…

Wizard Hex Review

Review Trouble Brothers, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Wizard Hex Review

One of the better advantages of touch-device gaming is the simplicity of setting up and playing board-games with friends, sans-dice/pieces and cards that only act as clutter. Wizard Hex by Trouble Brothers is a new board-game concept that uses some familiar concepts along with entirely unique ones to keep the gameplay fresh, whether you're playing against AI opponents or against your friends. As the name implies, the game is played out on a hexagonal grid (which is itself set inside a…

Bloons TD 4 Review

Review Ninja Kiwi By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Bloons TD 4 Review

Can lightning strike four times in a row? The Flash version of Bloons TD has survived the multiple releases despite minimal changes over time and in deference to the iOS device users the second and third title have been skipped by Digital Goldfish, launching Bloons TD 4 as the follow-up to their popular original tower-defense game. Much like the original game the goal is to simply destroy the colored balloons before they make their way to an exit, removing points from your health tota…

Papa Sangre Review

UPDATE: By popular request we have created a demonstration video of the 3D audio effect on our YouTube channel. You can view it by following the link on the YouTube page for our review or directly at - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9IN0A4GZrE When people ask me, 'Hey, can you recommend something a bit different for my iPhone?' I'll simply tell them to get Papa Sangre, because when it comes to 'unique' it's hard to say that any other App quite matches this one. Almost unlike anything…

Riven: The Sequel to Myst Review

Review Cyan Worlds By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Riven: The Sequel to Myst Review

A word of caution in two-parts before we jump in to this review. Firstly, yes, this is a 1GB file and given the vague outcries of other weighty titles I thought I should point this out. Secondly, if you couldn't stand the puzzles in Myst you should probably turn back now; Riven only gets harder and more obtuse, so if the slow pacing was too much before, it'll absolutely break you in this release. If you're still with me, then congratulations, you have the opportunity of playing perhap…

Touch Fly Review

Review Zepetto By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Touch Fly Review

With so many huge Triple-A titles and even amazing Independent titles providing iOS gamers with such great value, it's hard to remember at times that you're playing games on a mobile device. That may sound silly, but not every game needs to reach for these lofty standards and Touch Fly by Zepetto sticks to a simple endless formula for those after a quick, fun experience on the go. Touch Fly re-ignites the flames of 'The Hare and the Tortoise' race with a bit of jet-fuel as the Tortois…

Ramps Review

Review Backabit By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Ramps Review

Sometimes it seems as though everybody and their best pal has teamed up at some point to spit out another physics-based puzzler to grab a slice of the casual-audience pie. Ramps by Backabit has more of a history than most and instead of the usual fly-by-night animal-flinging adventure, you'll need to carefully position ramps to avoid the traps and obstacles to reach the level's exit. The ramps themselves are controlled by touch-and-drag elements on both ends and in the middle, allowin…

Sad Princess Review

Review Pomato Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 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, 9 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…
