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

Review Somethin' Else By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
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…

Lyst Review

While the sheer number of Apps released each day can result in a lot of chaff that only serves to clog up your iDevice, it also presents a unique chance to sift through and find those rare tasty grains that you never expected. Lyst by Steel Games is an arcade puzzler with a unique chemical-based twist that will challenge your dexterity and your ability exploit combination opportunities. There are four basic elements that can be combined, resulting in various effects based on the items…

UltraDeep Review

Review ViquaSoft Co., Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
UltraDeep Review

There's a reason why games that employ the 'endless' mechanic of games tend to be very hard - the longer you play, the more repetitive it feels and challenges provide obstacles worth overcoming. UltraDeep by ViquaSoft loses sight of this balance early on and you'll be reaching depths that are completely ridiculous even without the aid of gimmicky items that can purchased to 'aid' you. Tilting your iDevice will move your stick-figure spelunker back and forth, allowing you to fall off p…

Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time Review

Review BBC Worldwide By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time Review

I, like many others around the globe, can easily say that I am a fan of BBC's epic recurring series, Doctor Who. The revival of the series has resulted in a lot of new converts to the science-fiction classic and BBC aren't willing to skip out on a chance to further ensnare their legion with video games based on the franchise. Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time is the unfortunate result of this need to reach out to a broader audience and it will take a truly dedicated fan to look past the re…

Floe — a little bear needs your help Review

Review Clickgamer.com By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Floe — a little bear needs your help Review

On the cute scale, 'Floe - a little bear needs your help' by Clickgamer rates about 8.4 Unicorns, or roughly 12.8 Fluffy Puppies in the metric system. I mean seriously, look at the icon and read the title again and tell me this isn't bordering on critical-mass amounts of cuddliness! Should you take up the challenge of helping out baby bear 'Flo', you'll need to defeat an increasingly complex series of sliding-block puzzles. Each of these puzzles are situated on a chunk of ice, with on…

ePig Rope Review

Review ePig Games Spa By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
ePig Rope Review

There's nothing quite so disappointing as attempting to enjoy a game that has received so much care and a attention, only to be cut off at the knees by the gameplay it tries so desperately to cling on to. e-Pig Rope is a fantastic concept, but attempting to complete this rope-swinging title is an exercise in pure self-hatred. The controls are quite simple to pick up and learn - your pig floats down the screen somewhat unrealistically, but this provides you with the time to tap and hol…
