JellyCar 3 Review

Review Disney By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
JellyCar 3 Review

The JellyCar series has finally spawned a new sequel and unlike 2009's deviation in style, this release by Walaber and Disney has returned to the whacky time-trial racing in the (now) free original title. With little more than your moxxy, a world made out of jellow and a few power-ups, you'll need to take on a variety of levels in an attempt to complete them in the fastest time possible. Tapping the sides of the screen will accelerate or brake in the direction indicated, while tipping…

The Blocks Cometh By Halfbot Review

Review Halfbot By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
The Blocks Cometh By Halfbot Review

Don't mind the déjà-vu, it's not just you - we've been here before... quite literally; though this time The Blocks Cometh has been released by its original creators from Halfbot. However the developers aren't without their sense of humor and what started out as a relatively simple, yet fun Flash game, has bloomed in to a collaborative work that has partnered up several companies in an effort to create something wonderful. Much like The Incident from late last year, you'l…

Poker With Bob - Live Hands-On Preview

News By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Poker With Bob - Live Hands-On Preview

There was a point at which Poker (especially Texas Hold'em) was nigh-on impossible to avoid - but not without good reason... it's a fun game to play, especially with friends. Video games went a long way to provide an experience similar to that of playing with real people, but in many cases it either lacked personality or was intentionally obtuse to add difficulty to the game. Poker With Bob by Scary Robot strips things back by pitting you against a single opponent, 'Bob', but in a neat twist he has been professionally animated by industry specialist Dustin Adair to not only add life and realism to the character, but to provide a bit of humor as well. The game's set to launch on Friday the…


Ninja Ropes Extreme 2 Review

Review Sarkscape Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Ninja Ropes Extreme 2 Review

Ninja Ropes Extreme by Sarkscape Games started out its life as a simple web-browser game compatible with Safari on iOS devices. High praise was given to this physics-based endless title in the form of a musical number in the Dr. Horrible commentary and now the sequel has hit the App Store with a native application. Armed with little more than two ropes, your ninja must make his way as far to the right as possible, swinging between gears while making use of or avoiding areas of force t…

Puckerz! Review

Review Groundbreaking Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Puckerz! Review

Being a dedicated gamer can be tiring, not in the sense that it's physically demanding, but sometimes the long bouts of concentration can be draining. This is where casual games tend to fill the gap, providing a fun, mindless way to enjoy your spare time without the same demands that other titles expect of you. Puckerz! by Groundbreaking Games is like a breath of fresh air, providing gameplay that requires nothing more than your willingness to keep smashing shiny objects in an attempt…

Hungry Shark - Part 3 Review

Review Future Games of London By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Hungry Shark - Part 3 Review

Future Games of London have placed Hungry Shark back up for a third spin on the App Store and for those already familiar with this vicious free-roaming title you now have a chance to take on an evil genius in his secret lair. Where the first release had its moments of fun, it was ultimately fairly short and limited in its scope. Part 3 goes a long way to resolve this problem by providing a much larger area to play with and challenging obstacles to overcome in order to get there. Cont…

Extreme_Formula Review

Review GOGN Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Extreme_Formula Review

Slick graphics, speedy racing and a futuristic theme are all well and good, but when it comes down to it a player needs to be able to feel like they're in control of their car when playing a racing title. It seems like a fairly obvious point, but Extreme Formula by GOGN Entertainment falls short of the mark and new players are bound to scratch their head as they try to work out what they're doing wrong. This is, in part, thanks to an interface that is cumbersome by design and the init…

Crystal Soul Review

Review HuaXu Culture Creative By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Crystal Soul Review

It was only a matter of time before someone else decided to emulate the gameplay of Bloody Fun Day by Urban Squall, but the dismal conversion to the App Store left the doors wide open for someone else to exploit. Crystal Soul by HuaXu Culture Creative is a new take on this turn-based puzzler concept, though those unfamiliar with its source material may find themselves out of their depth. Each of the 20 currently available levels presents players with a set of objectives to complete be…

Bad Air Day Review

Review GameHouse By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Bad Air Day Review

Much like their principle subject, fart-related games are a lingering, distasteful blemish on the App Store, yet it seems their continued success is assured as many people (especially younger audiences) are suckers for a bit of potty-humor. Bad Air Day by GameHouse tries to figuratively clear the air, restoring a bit of demure elegance to what is still a bit of a faux pas. Artie, the main character, is an elevator operator at a swanky hotel, however he has also made the deadly mistake…

Karoshi Review

Review YoYo Games Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Karoshi Review

The concept of Karoshi (karoo-shi) is not generally considered a very amusing one as it quite literally means to work yourself to death, however in the world of video games we often work hard to avoid dying in order to win. Developer Jesse Venbrux has an obsession with changing this dynamic and iOS gamers may already be familiar with his work on They Need To Be Fed, but when it comes to self-annihilation the Karoshi series is where the theme truly shines. For those who haven't played…

Tasty Planet Review

Review Dingo Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Tasty Planet Review

Tasty Planet by Dingo Games is an adaption of the game of the same name from its desktop PC release. Based in part on the same gameplay concept as Katamari Damacy, you must consume objects that are smaller than you until you grow large enough to consume everything in sight. Life in Tasty Planet starts off in a petri dish, cleaning up dirt as intended, however it's clear that the inventor of this gray-goo didn't design limitations on what could be consumed and it soon escalates out of…

Captain Puzzle Review

Review Spearhead Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Captain Puzzle Review

The timing of the release of Captain Puzzle by Spearhead Entertainment couldn't be more unfortunate, but sometimes fate can be a cruel mistress and you have to play with the hand you're dealt. Thankfully, while Captain Puzzle features gameplay not unlike Bust-A-Move, the puzzle-based focus makes for a more demanding title. As Captain Puzzle, you need to match three or more colored orbs together by throwing (and occasionally bouncing) randomly assigned orbs around the screen. Initially…

Review HOTDOG Studio INC. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Ready Action! Review

For the developers at HOTDOG Studios, poor translation issues for English speaking audiences don't seem to be much of a concern, but it's an easy thing to forgive as the gameplay in their latest title 'Ready Action!' manages to shine through despite this amusing flaw. Your character has decided to become a movie star and you'll need to help him to survive rapid-fire levels in an attempt to prove he's the best actor out there. To do this you'll need to invest in new costumes purchased…

Review Meritum Soft d.o.o. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Reiner Knizia's Yoku-Gami Review

With plenty of board games already under his belt, Reiner Knizia has turned his hand at producing a simpler puzzle game for the App Store. Yoku-Gami is the result of this collaboration with developer Meritum Soft and you'll need to put your math-hats on to make headway in this puzzler. Whether you choose the Endless, Arcade or Level mode, the basic gameplay remains the same. Players are presented with a 6x6 grid filled with numbers and to clear them off the board you'll need to select…

Volcano Escape - Live Hands-On Preview

Volcano Escape - Live Hands-On Preview

After the positive comments we received from our 5 million viewers video, we've decided to stick with the format for our hands-on previews. It's great fun getting to experience a game in a live setting and while there's no-one else there to act as a sounding board, openly discussing some of the issues that crop up really helps to nail them down. Volcano Escape is an upcoming endless platformer from Bravo Game Studios set (not coincidentally) in a volcano as you attempt to (you guessed it) escape! Multiple characters are teased and unlockable by completing various challenges, some of which will require grinding, while others you're likely to obtain naturally as you attempt to climb higher.…
