XAGON. Review

Review Sudden Creations By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
XAGON. Review

XAGON. by Sudden Creations might be a little familiar for some, especially if you've played the recently released title 'Flipstones'. However, instead of going for a flashy and at times unforgiving style of gameplay, XAGON strips things down to the basics and players will need to either make matches as fast as possible, or with the minimum amount of moves to score it big. Swapping only requires a quick swipe, but they can only be switched one at a time, making the Strategy and Arcade…

God Penalty Review

Review Juns' Studio By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
God Penalty Review

Perhaps its my ignorance of Chinese culture, but the idea of a god hovering on a cloud and zapping people who have an angry disposition doesn't sit well with me. But then again when it's you controlling the god it at least makes for an interesting idea, one that is the basis for God Penalty by Juns' Studio. In each level you'll have to 'purify' more and more pesky humans who have a negative outlook on life by giving them a bit of a zap. After a while you'll cleanse these negative thou…


Zombies Ate My Baby Review

Review Eccentricity By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Zombies Ate My Baby Review

I'll be perfectly honest, it was the name of this game that drew me to it - a morbid curiosity compelled me. Thankfully 'Zombies Ate My Baby' is nothing like I imagined and in fact this action title from Eccentricity was a surprisingly exciting game to jump in to. You'll have to protect your protagonist, Cheyenne, as she tries to prevent the latest in a line of men in her life from dying as they seem to be prone to being eaten by Zombies. For most levels this involves tilting your cur…

Review fraglab.at By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
rRootage Online HD Review

Permit me a moment to geek out a little as it's no surprise that I enjoy the occasional shoot'em-up (shmup) and when someone mentions Kenta Cho I get a little thrill shiver down my spine. rRootage Online is a port by fraglab.at of this incredible title for iDevices, but viewers beware, this is not for the feint of heart. The basic controls are extremely simple, with your ship being controlled by touching and dragging your finger on screen and tapping with another finger to activate yo…

Spark It Up Review

Review sumiguchi By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Spark It Up Review

In Spark It Up by Sumiguchi you'll take part in a magical fireworks show, setting off each rocket while creating what could only be vaguely described as music in the process. Each of the game's six currently available levels features a unique sound track that is used in combination with touching the screen to generate musical sound. With each pass of the Lumines-esque bar across the screen you'll need to swipe or tap every rocket on screen to set them off and earn points. If three roc…

Review Nevercenter Ltd. Co. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
shibuya Review

Some games are downright devious in their attempts to keep players addicted to their games and Nevercenter, the creators of 'shibuya', have crafted their arcade puzzler with these cunning traps in mind.  The basic gameplay is amazingly unique and can take some time to wrap your head around and this is the first trap the sinks its claws in to you. Players need to line up two or more of the same colors to clear them off the board, however colors are given in a random order and can…

GEON™ Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
GEON™ Review

After its release on the iPad it was only a matter of time until GEON by Strawdog Studios made its way on to the iPhone as well. Published by Chillingo, this hyper-speed Pac Man style puzzle platformer is certainly flashy in its appearance, but instead of bringing the full experience from major consoles this pint-sized game trims back the fat to try and make it more appealing for on-the-go gamers. It's probably best to forget the game's tilt controls as this game demands far too much…

Fire Dragon Review

Review Joybean By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Fire Dragon Review

Fire Dragon by Joybean is an unfortunate arcade title where you must collect as much fruit as possible before various monsters or blocks of ice bludgeon you to death. It's a simple title and its controls match the simple theme with tilt controls to slide your dragon back and forth along his wooden platform and touching the screen to fire a burst of flame straight up. Various groups of fruit will drop from the sky and must be blasted to release them from their icy prison. If you're luc…

Review 3D Magic Kft. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Assault Commando Review

What would you do if you were in a jungle with a swag of guns, tasked with a vague mission of taking out a world-domineering madman all the while dealing with a chronic psychological disorder where you must dispense a one-liner after almost every action you make? Why you'd saddle up and blow everything up to pieces 'cause you're playing Assault Commando by 3D Magic. The game's control system isn't anything too out of the ordinary, with a basic virtual stick and various buttons for wea…

Coastal Super-Combat Review

Coastal Super-Combat Review

Coastal Super-Combat by Triniti Interactive is yet another weapon-based defense title to add to the pile, but it has been some time since we've tried one of these games so lets see if anything new has cropped up. The controls definitely fall under the heading of 'if it's not broke, don't fix it' which means that players will need to drag and around their cross-hairs to aim each weapon while firing with another button and tilting to pan across the game field. After each level you'll be…

Review Crescent Moon Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Rimelands: Hammer of Thor Review

Rimelands: Hammer of Thor is a breath of fresh air for me, not only as a reviewer, but as a gamer that has been craving a good old turn-based RPG for a while now. In this title from Crescent Moon Games you'll get to follow Rose's exploits as she unravels family secrets and battles for treasure in the many vaults scattered around the Rimelands.

Review Big Mouse Media By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Hot Plates Review

UPDATE: First I must apologize for posting this review early in error, however most of the content still stands with a couple minor exceptions. The latest patch adds a new micro-game mode for periods where you only have a short time to play. It's a neat addition that solves the problem of the main game taking too long to reach a challenging level of play, but some difficulty selection would still be neat. Thanks to these changes and more (including minor achievements for prog…
