Review Axion Logic By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
chronoSgear Review

chronoSgear by Axion Logic is perhaps the first of its breed on the App Store and I'm intrigued that something like this hasn't found its way on iDevices sooner. In this strategic RPG you'll need to make use of your three-match skills in a turn-based style of gameplay to outwit and outplay your opponents while working as a mafioso. Outside of combat the game is your fairly typical JRPG title, allowing you to wander around environments with a touch-anywhere d-pad system, entering rando…

Gangstar: Miami Vindication Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Gangstar: Miami Vindication Review

At long last the next in the Gangstar series has hit the App Store and Gameloft have once again piled in just enough tweaks and flourishes to show that they're not just taking the easy way out when it comes to sequels. Right off the bat I'm glad to say that other than the basic similarities shared by sandbox titles, this one feels right at home on the iPhone and situating the game in a 'modern' Miami setting makes it harder to make the obvious GTA comparisons. As you make your way thr…

Neuroshima Hex Review

Review Big Daddy's Creations By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Neuroshima Hex Review

I'm not in to the table-top RPG scene, though several of my friends do tell me that Neuroshima is an interesting game to say the least. Interesting enough to be adapted in to a board-game with an eventual translation in to English and players can forgo physical pieces thanks to its release on to the App Store, giving you the ability to jump in to this title anywhere you like. As the title suggests, the game is played out on a hexagonal board, with pieces being placed in order to gain…

Swords and Sandals Review

Review 3RDsense By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Swords and Sandals Review

Sword and Sandals by 3RDsense continues the tradition of bringing free flash titles over to the App Store, but instead of merely cashing in with a direct port this version has been given some serious upgrades and tweaks over the free one. In this title you'll battle against vast amounts of gladiators, one at a time, until you rest easy as the ultimate champion. For those familiar with the series, the App Store version is an adaption of the second title that has been tweaked with a few…

Beyond Ynth Review

Review FDG Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Beyond Ynth Review

Around this time last year gamers were able to get their hands on a neat, unique puzzler named Ynth and despite it's extremely frustrating style it still showed a lot of potential for improvement. Now 'Beyond Ynth', the spiritual sequel by FDG Entertainment and Krabl, has been released all of that potential seems to have been fully realized. Much like the original your goal is to cross a distance of open space, often full of hazards, by rolling boxes with complex designs around the fi…

Warrior Nation-Blade Review

Review Park Sun-woo By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Warrior Nation-Blade Review

As horizontal beat'em-up-come-action-RPG titles go, Warrior Nation-Blade by Park Sun-woo isn't going to win any awards just yet, but before you discount this game off-hand I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with how it managed to hold my attention. In most beat'em-ups I tend to have one particular pet-peeve that's very difficult to avoid: repetition. 'But that's what the genre is all about!' I hear you exclaim, but that's not entirely true. While button-mashing may be somewhat o…

Plunder! Review

Review Big Fish Games, Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Plunder! Review

UPDATE: The game has been temporarily pulled from the App Store due to a rather nasty bug. A representative from Big Fish Games has said that they want to best serve their customers by not allowing the bug to continue to affect new players and will be back online once they are confident the issue is closed. So just hang tight and you'll be blowing up mines before you know it ;) Without a doubt it's no coincidence that Plunder! by Big Fish Games was released before the weekend of Septe…

Kingsburg Serving the Crown Review

Review iNigma By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Kingsburg Serving the Crown Review

Kingsburg (yes that's Kingsburg, not Kinsburg like on the App Store) is a moderately popular board game that was released back in 2007 and after an interesting - and immensely game changing - expansion in 2009, it is interesting to see this dice-based strategic game finally available for iDevices thanks to iNigma. Despite being dice-based, Kingsburg is a surprisingly complicated title to dive in to, so don't expect your first game to be anything but a complete wash for the sake of lea…

MovieCat! - Movie Trivia Game Review

Review OtherWise Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
MovieCat! - Movie Trivia Game Review

It's not often that we delve in to a quiz-based game and it's not that they're not fun, it's just that they tend to be fairly lazy in their approach. MovieCat! by OtherWise Games shows that quiz games don't require an insane amount of knowledge on a particular subject to be fun and by using a pub video-quiz style with some clever categories it manages to remain fresh and exciting each time you play. Unfortunately the game is currently single-player only, but your aim is to get as far…

Blaze: Fire Puzzle Review

Review Handmark, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Blaze: Fire Puzzle Review

As unique experiences go, I'd have to say that 'Blaze: Fire Puzzle' definitely sits on a lonely pedestal with a handful of games like Zen Bound as the kind of puzzle title you gravitate towards not for the difficulty, but for the sheer experience of it. And it's not without reason that I invoke Zen Bound as a comparison for this title by developer Handmark as its relaxed style will be immediately familiar to those who have spent some time painting 3D shapes with rope. Your goal is to…

The Expendables Game Review

Review Nurogames By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
The Expendables Game Review

The magic of a film like The Expendables is, at least for me, something that comes from the sheer over-the-top insanity of having so many big names duking it out for screen time while being shameless in its pandering to the action genre in general. Sadly The Expendables Game by Nurogames features next to none of this energy and excitement and this, above anything else, is a real shame to see. By default your character will simply run around the deserted 3D environment and can be turne…

Review XLab Technologies By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Hardcore Dirt Bike Review

Hardcore Dirt Bike by XLab Technologies is, as you might have already guessed at this point, a dirt bike racing game from the creators of MonsterTruck Rally. Much like the first game you can control your bike by steering your iDevice left and right while accelerating and braking by touching the right and left hand sides respectively. Should you gain enough air you can also tap a small button on the left side to trigger a 'trick', earning additional credits on top of those you get by c…

SEED 2 - Vortex of War Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
SEED 2 - Vortex of War Review

'SEED 2 - Vortex of War' takes place five years after the events of the first game and you'll take control of Litta once again as he takes on the mantle of 'the hero' to save his country from destruction. We're long past the point where such simple stories are simply tiresome, but like so many other action titles what it lacks in narrative it tries to make up for in gameplay. Getting to grips with the game's action gameplay can take some time and in fact it's hard not to feel a little…

KOWA-OTO Review

Review Spike-Chunsoft CO, LTD. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
KOWA-OTO Review

There's something about Eastern horror themes that really get to me; I'll freely admit that classic movies like Ringu really got inside my head and they were hard to shake off once the film was over. KOWA-OTO by CHUNSOFT banks on this kind of horror getting under your skin and you'll have to escape a maze while being followed by a creepy possessed doll. You only have a few options once you're in the deadly maze and players can either turn around or move forward and backward. For each…

Review Blue Carrot Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Axe in Face Review

In Blue Carrot Games' first title for the App Store, 'Axe in Face - Defense of the Daffodils', you'll play the role of a viking who's very VERY protective of his daffodils. To crush his daffodils is to invoke his wrath and you don't want to mess with a viking that can throw a flaming axe while calling on the power of the gods. In each of the game's 32 currently available levels you'll need to protect your field while burning, freezing, shocking or lopping off heads from other invading…
