Dead Runner Review

Review Distinctive Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Dead Runner Review

I can't really put my finger on it, but Dead Runner by Distinctive Developments gets my spine tingling and it's hard to work out why it's so effective. Dead Runner's gameplay is (sorry to say it), dead simple. In both of the game's two available modes all you have to do is tilt and avoid solid obstacles blocking your way. In doing this you end up traveling through an endless forest of gnarled trees as you sprint away from the darkness behind you and in to the light beyond. Simple gam…

Super Mega Worm Review

Review Deceased Pixel LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Super Mega Worm Review

My initial impressions while playing Super Mega Worm from Deceased Pixel consisted of saying to myself, 'Oh wow, they totally made Tremors in to a video game!'. For those of you familiar with the classic horror-esque film, this will make a lot of sense, but for those not initiated just be prepared to make a big mess while eating your way through the entirety of humanity. What do I mean by this? Well you get to control a giant worm that is destined to cleanse the world of the human pla…

Knight's Rush Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Knight's Rush Review

'Knight's Rush' is Chillingo's newest game and an attempt to dive in to the side-scrolling beat'em-up world for their Knight's Onrush franchise. While it's easy to compare the basic idea to something like Castle Crashers on the XBLA, Knight's Rush is decidedly a single-player experience and a unique one at that. As you begin each new world in the campaign mode you'll be stripped of your levels and must start anew, beating down enemies in the form of flesh and blood creatures and the o…

Last Front: Europe Review

Review Plow Digital, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Last Front: Europe Review

We're digging through the archives a bit here, but Last Front: Europe by Plow Digital is one of those games I definitely regret not picking up on the first time around. Early on Last Front feels much like an open area tower defense title like Field Runners, giving you the option of placing towers with relative freedom to 'maze' incoming units. However as you progress through the campaign, unlocking new and diverse maps, you'll have to account for units with clever AI that attempt to o…

No, Human Review

Review vol-2 By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
No, Human Review

'No, Human' by vol-2 has been getting a lot of attention lately and not without good reason as it's just more fun than it seems to have any right to be. Despite being extremely quick to finish the game's charm lies in the quick-fire gameplay that is punctuated now and then by moments that make you laugh, keeping you invested in what happens right through to the end. No, Human is a basic physics puzzler where you need to fling 'fireballs' in order to rid the universe of humans who have…

The Crimsons Review

Review Wabo Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
The Crimsons Review

Wabo Studios describes their new release, The Crimsons, as a mini interactive horror novella and they're not too far off the mark. It's a short and sweet horror themed experience, but outside of a few loud stings it's not going to make you jump out of your skin. And this is a real shame as the game is truly invested in the experience over the action, with only basic controls to guide your character for most of the game. An analogue stick allows you to move forward, back and turn and w…

Donut Ninja - Tappi Bear Review

Review Taplay Limited By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Donut Ninja - Tappi Bear Review

Donut Ninja is the third in a current series of four available games by Taplay in the 'Tappi Bear' series of mini-games and I thought I'd give you the low-down on at least one of these titles as they're an interesting experience to say the least. All of the games in this series keep things extremely simple, requiring only one to two taps to play and in Donut Ninja it's your job to feed the incoming waves of attacking ninja bears with donuts before they attack. The game essentially fee…

AlienCab Review

AlienCab is the latest title out for Clickgamer that throws its hat in to the ever increasing pile of line drawing games on the App Store. You get to run a cab company for aliens scattered across the 'universe' and managing your pick ups and drop offs can quickly send you in to a spin. Like many line drawers you'll need to keep your cabs from colliding as they ferry their load of aliens from planet to planet, however in an interesting twist you get to manage just how many cabs are cur…

A Skeleton Story...The Game Review

Review KF Lab By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
A Skeleton Story...The Game Review

'A Skeleton Story... The Game' by KF Lab has launched its way on to the App Store and I can't help but feel I'm a little out of the loop. While I know this is a title based on a comic book, I wasn't able to get a hold on any of the work prior to playing this Canabalt-style runner and it seems as though I should have known more before going in. I say 'Canabalt-style', but this isn't strictly true; think of the game as more of a platformer where you're forced to constantly run by the ne…

2K Sports NHL 2K11 Review

Review 2K By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
2K Sports NHL 2K11 Review

NOTE: Not currently compatible with 1st Gen iPhone, iPhone 3G or original iPod Touch devices. It has been a while since we've had a chance to dive in to an ice hockey title and it's great to see 2K Sports release of  NHL 2K11 up on the App Store. Ice hockey titles haven't done spectacularly on iDevices to date and it's interesting to see 2K Sports keeping the gameplay in the arcade-style with a basic virtual stick and three button setup for pass, shoot and sprint. What makes thi…
