HM tank Review

Review CLOUDWALKER By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
HM tank Review

The premise of HeavyMetalTankBattles by CLOUDWALKER is a simple one: You must defend your base from enemy tanks before running out of tanks to defend with. However despite the simple idea and the fun retro pixel-art and sprite style visuals, the controls and AI leave more than a lot to be desired. In particular players are only given one control system and I was at a loss as to how to hold my iDevice. To move your tank you need to tap the sides of the screen corresponding to the direc…

Robin Hood - Archer of the Woods Review

Review Clickgamer.com By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Robin Hood - Archer of the Woods Review

Clickgamer's latest bite-sized title places you in the role of 'Robin Hood - Archer of the Woods' as he attempts to defend a poor village from an army set on destroying it.  Bow-defense titles are a hit or miss genre (what's with my puns this week?) and this is partly due to the rather loose control scheme they tend to share. In Robin Hood all you need to do is tap and slide your finger back to aim and set the power of your shot and while this isn't specifically new, I do like th…

ARDefender Review

Review int13 By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
ARDefender Review

Alternate Reality (AR) titles usually aren't easy for us to review thanks to our video setup, but an exception had to be made for ARDefender by int13 as it just looked too good to be true. While some expectations weren't met, the first time I loaded up the game and witnessed the AR features my jaw simply dropped. However a little setup is required first and you'll need to print out or otherwise use a display showing a distinct pattern that the game can recognize. Once the game recogni…

The Secret of Grisly Manor Review

Review Fire Maple Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
The Secret of Grisly Manor Review

The Secret of Grisly Manor by Fire Maple Games is a puzzle adventure title of the style most people will easily compare to games like Myst. While the 'pure' Adventure genre saw a sharp decline some years ago, a recent revival in the form of bite-sized episodic challenges has helped to bring this classic genre to the foreground again. We're not talking about hidden-object style games here either; no, this is all about taking abstract situations and puzzles and attempting to make the pi…

Blind World Review

Review Dmitriy Kuzmenko By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Blind World Review

In the interest of full disclosure I will point out that Blind World by Dmitriy Kuzmenko was not reviewed on release as its crashing issues made it an impossible game to fairly review. However after a recent patch the game was finally made playable and this beautifully designed puzzler has been given a chance to shine. In each level of Blind World your objective is to carefully and with purposefully explore the world around you in order to reach a preset 'point' value for your actions…

Game Dev Story Review

Review Kairosoft Co.,Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Game Dev Story Review

Perhaps it's something about working as a reviewer or perhaps it's just being a huge fan of gaming in general, but Game Dev Story by Kairosoft has me hook, line and sinker. That's right, my name is Andrew and I'm addicted to Game Dev Story. The first thing to point out about GDS is that it clearly seems to have been developed for mobile phones in general and not iDevices specifically. The game is for the most part driven by menus and selectable options, though this is streamlined a li…

Last Minute Hero Review

Review Squax By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Last Minute Hero Review

I really want to like Last Minute Hero by Squax, so instead of a harsh verbal reprisal lets consider this a sort of love letter to a game that attempts to do something exciting and interesting, but ends up breaking my heart by never managing to finish what it started. You play as a girl, perhaps a cosplayer of some sort, stuck in a cordoned off area of the Shibuya Crossing that is being invaded by giant mutated spiders. So naturally you whip out your weapons of destruction and go to t…

Super Turbo Action Pig Review

We're hitting up the archives today on request to review Super Turbo Action Pig (STAP) by Joystick Generals and while many of you may have already encountered this interesting side-scrolling arcade title, others may take pleasure in discovering something fun they may have missed. And STAP isn't lacking for fun at all, pitting your rocket-strapped pig against the evil Butcher Bill as he attempts to shred you apart with his collection of utensils. Tapping the giant button in the corner…

Urban Ninja Review

Review Donut Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Urban Ninja Review

If anything, Donut Games should be applauded for the consistency of its titles, if not for their execution. It's hard to say that Urban Ninja is anything but a unique and interesting concept, but fundamental problems with the controls and gameplay elements seem set to ruin what would have otherwise been a fun game. You're placed in control of a chubby French ninja ('Why chubby?' and 'Why French?' seems to fall under the response of 'Because.') and you need to escape the city after hav…

Crazy John Review

Crazy John Review

Sometimes, just sometimes I just can't let something like this slip by without comment. Crazy John by Triniti Interactive had some of the best potential to become a truly classic twin-stick shooter, but instead it chose to be a Minigore clone and ended up losing its way. The controls are standard for a twin-stick, with one stick used to move and the other to aim and shoot, while a small row of icons in the middle allow you to select your weapon of choice. Weapons vary in power and gen…

Fumes Stunt Racer Review

Review Sector3 Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Fumes Stunt Racer Review

I was never a huge fan of Stunt Car Racer (SCR) - yes, yes, 'blasphemy' I know - but I was having too much fun butting my head against games like Impossible Mission to master a title as subtly complex as SCR. Fumes Stunt Racer (FSR) by Sector3 Games is a spiritual revival of the seminal racing simulator and for once I'm glad I'm not dealing with rose-tinted glasses. FSR is not a title that forgives people for just jumping in and blasting away; no, players will need to come to grips, f…

Bull Running Review

Review Twins Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Bull Running Review

To be honest, I'm surprised this hasn't been done before - although to be fair it probably has (feel free to point it out!) - but the Spanish festivity of the Running of the Bulls has practically screamed for an endless runner game based on the tradition. Bull Running by Twin Games fills this tiny hole and you'll run for your life as you're pursued by a raging bull while avoiding the many hazards left out in the street. Like a lot of runners all you have to do is tap to jump, but in t…
