A Plinky Game! Review

Review Marco Ferraguti By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
A Plinky Game! Review

A Plinky Game! by Marco Ferraguti claims to have created a spin-off of Labyrinth that combines a Pachinko/Bagatelle style board with various hazards to create a game that's one part skill to two parts luck and a whole lot of addictive fun. Gameplay couldn't be simpler, with players touching the top of the screen to drop a ball in to the 'maze'. This gives players some amount of control to determine the height and direction of the ball's initial bounce for optimum safety, but as the ba…

Chop Chop Tennis Review

Review Gamerizon By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Chop Chop Tennis Review

As the third game in Gamerizon's 'Chop Chop' series, 'Chop Chop Tennis' certainly has a lot riding on its shoulders after following in the footsteps of 'Ninja' and 'Runner'. While the first two games were successful platformers, 'Tennis' has taken a large diversion and brings 'Chop Chop's signature intuitive controls to the court. If there's anything that Gamerizon can't be faulted on, it's their clever use of the touch screen to provide players with a simple and easy to master contro…

Ninjatown: Trees Of Doom! Review

Review Venan Entertainment, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Ninjatown: Trees Of Doom! Review

It all started with 'Wee Ninja', a tiny character designed by former EGM editor Shawn Smith. Thanks to developer Venan Entertainment the concept quickly blossomed in to 'Ninjatown', a tower-defense game for the Nintendo DS. Venan are no strangers to the iPhone and instead of another tower-defense game, their latest game 'Ninjatown: Trees Of Doom!' switches things up as an endless vertical jumper. Trees Of Doom takes a minimalistic approach to the controls, using a single-finger contro…

Extreme Sheepdog Trials HD Edition iPad Review

Review Green Custard Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Extreme Sheepdog Trials HD Edition iPad Review

Extreme Sheepdog Trials HD Edition is the iPad version of UK based developer Green Custard's take on shepherding for iDevices and 'extreme' couldn't be more appropriate as your sheepdog goes from paddock to spaceship in an effort to keep those sheep under control. There are three major control schemes available, with the drawing controls being the easiest to initially try out. Players can direct their dog with taps or drawing paths and herds can be followed by tapping on groups, while…

CrossRoads Review

Review FABULAPPS By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
CrossRoads Review

Sure... Navigating planes to various landing strips is easy enough, especially when you have all of that free space to move around in. So perhaps you're after something a bit more taxing on your braincells, perhaps with a few hazards mixed in, because you're just that hardcore. CrossRoads eschews this flying around nonsense and keeps you stuck to the terra firma as you navigate vehicles of all kinds to their destination. To be fair, regardless of whether you're in the air or on the gr…

Dogs Playing Poker Review

Review Candywriter, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Dogs Playing Poker Review

It's such a simple idea, but Dogs Playing Poker could easily have been a hard one to stomach thanks to C. M. Coolidge's paintings holding a dubious position in pop culture and its assorted ephemera. Thankfully instead of some tacky attempt at cashing in on a pop reference Dogs Playing Poker by Candywriter is probably one of the friendliest and certainly furriest Texas Hold'em games for the iPhone. The tutorial is simply brilliant and gives players a chance to not only learn the game's…

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Monster Mayhem Review

Zombies are the least of your problems as the Gate Keeper of a graveyard. In Monster Mayhem by Chillingo you'll face the creatures of the night and their imposingly huge bosses while dispensing round after round of ammunition to stop them from breaking out of your graveyard. As a weapon-based castle-defense game you're given a broad selection of guns, explosives and even a melee weapon to fend off everything from blobs of slime to Asian hopping zombies. But this is no easy feat to pul…

Egg Drop Arcade 2 Review

Review DJArts Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Egg Drop Arcade 2 Review

It hasn't taken much time for DJArts Games to create a sequel to their Egg Drop Arcade series and on the surface of it you'd have to be forgiven if you thought that not much has truly changed in the last two months. Thankfully Egg Drop Arcade 2 has been given more than a colorful resurfacing, sporting 24 new levels that are as fun as they are quirky to enjoy. Much like the original game, gameplay revolves around obtaining a set amount of tokens by dropping an egg through a series of o…

Propaganda Lander Review

Review SMASHWORX, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Propaganda Lander Review

Propaganda Lander is a bold first title for developer SMASHWORKX on the iPhone with its mix of arcade-style Lander gameplay and amusing, tongue-in-cheek storyline. You'll follow the story of an alien that's mistreated at the hands of the ego-maniacal 'Rickster' and forced to suck up native inhabitants of each planet you visit to fleece them for all their cash. Propaganda Lander's controls are smooth and easy to understand, but will take some adjustment to feel completely comfort…

100 Rogues Review

100 Rogues has been a year and a half in the making, but developers Dinofarm Games have finally reached the finish line with their Rogue-like dungeon crawler for the App Store. This is a game of wit and survival and certainly shouldn't be taken lightly by those after a true RPG challenge. The controls are intuitive and respond to basic screen touches to move or attack depending on what you highlight. Skill trees are available to each class and provide access to abilities that wi…

The Glowing Void Review

Review Assyria Game Studio By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
The Glowing Void Review

The Glowing Void by Assyria Game Studio is an interesting spin on the classic arcade game Qix with players being tasked to fill the screen as much as possible while avoiding deadly bouncing balls. It's a basic premise that's given a great twist by allowing players to also flip their iPhone to change the gravity, potentially trapping the bouncing balls for bigger bonuses. 'Filler' mode requires players to fill up at least 70% of the screen, much like Qix and its variants. Touching and…
