Damian Filigree: the Book of Thoth Review

Review Bloomsix By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Damian Filigree: the Book of Thoth Review

I've never really understood the whole Indiana Jones / exploration of ancient deadly temples thing - I mean half the time you either die to some undead creature, curse or trap and almost every other time you unleash some nightmare on the world that was sealed away for a reason. Oh well, it seems that in Damian Filigree: the Book of Thoth by Bloomsix you'll need to sprint your way through subterranean corridors, avoiding traps and solving puzzles in order to escape a Mummy that's guardi…

Samurai II: Vengeance Review

Review MADFINGER Games, a.s. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Samurai II: Vengeance Review

For some the first Samurai title from MADFINGER was a smash hit, for others it was a resounding dull thud, but love it or loathe it their latest release Samurai II: Vengeance builds upon this scrolling beat'em-up and takes it to new heights. The touch and swipe controls have been replaced with a much more familiar virtual stick and button system and players can combine short and long attacks to recreate the brutal combos from the original title. A dodge button gives your Samurai the a…

Font Monsters Review

Review Muu Muu Co.,Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Font Monsters Review

If someone told me before today that I'd be playing and enjoying a game about shooting creatures made out of letters and symbols, I'd probably look at them a bit funny and consider them a bit nutty. Then again, I did enjoy a game about shooting zombie cookies with a milk gun that fires when you type words, so perhaps Font Monsters by Muu Muu isn't that crazy after all. In short all you have to do is to identify what letters and symbols the creature you're facing is made of and correct…

Alien Space Review

Review Owens Rodriguez By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Alien Space Review

While Alien Space by Owens Rodriguez may look like your typical twin-stick shooter with upgrades, don't be fooled in to thinking it's the same as the usual bunch with passive and suicidal AI enemies that can't wait to be blown away. These enemies can't wait to blow YOU away and they'll use everything you have at your disposal to do it. The controls are standard for a twin-stick, with movement on one stick and aiming/firing on another and players can switch between a primary and second…

Red Ball Of Goo Review

Review Utopian Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Red Ball Of Goo Review

Developer Utopian Games, better known for their recent physics puzzler 'Bumps' challenged themselves to a 24 hour development marathon. Over this period they went from concept to final product and the three plucky developers ended up with 'Red Balls Of Goo', a physics based platformer that is by no means a simple challenge to conquer. In each of the game's 30 currently available levels, you need to collect the lazy pink orbs scattered around various platforms before making your way to…

Star Battalion Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Star Battalion Review

It seems like the release of Apple's most recent iDevices has lit a fire underneath Gameloft and while not every recent release has been a winner it's hard not to be impressed by them. Star Battalion is their latest App Store release and it's hard to express how hard I've fallen for this space fighter pilot sim. Shades of classic Lucas Arts titles like X-Wing and Rogue Squadron along with other Nintendo classics like Star Fox are immediately recognizable in Star Battalion, but instead…

Panzer Elite Review

Review EASY Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Panzer Elite Review

Did I miss the memo where 'Easy' now means 'keep restarting until you figure out what the developer intended'? Don't mistake Panzer Elite by EASY Inc. for the regular sort of castle defense titles out there as your goal isn't to merely crush your enemy, but to sit there countering his units until you max out your upgrade score and then win. This isn't exactly covered in the tutorial - which I might add is merely a help screen with a handful of screens highlighting interface elements t…

Bonecruncher Soccer Review

Bonecruncher Soccer Review

Comparing Bonecruncher Soccer by Distinctive Developments to its inspiration Backbreaker Football is not unlike that of comparing Veggie Samurai to Fruit Ninja. When playing Bonecruncher you can't help but feel that you've been here before and while there are some changes it all feels skin-deep. However, you can't hold a good idea down and comparisons aside Bonecruncher is a challenging game to master and unlike American football where brutal tackles are a norm, having your legs swept…

Cartoon Wars 2: Heroes Review

Review BLUE GNC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Cartoon Wars 2: Heroes Review

When you look back at BLUE GNC's previous Cartoon Wars and Cartoon Wars-Gunner titles, 'Cartoon Wars 2: Heroes' seems like the obvious next step. While the combination of beat'em-up and castle defense gameplay elements don't mesh terribly well, it's an interesting way to try and break up the monotony inherent in these sorts of games. Both the defense and beat'em-up sections will take some time to get used to and you'll need to prepare yourself for some fairly humiliating losses in ord…
