Zombie Flick Review

Review Full Fat By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Zombie Flick Review

I harp on and on about how overused the zombie idea is, but it's only ever a matter of time before someone comes along and makes me remember why it's such a great concept. Flick Zombie by Full Fat places you in control of a poor survivor with nothing but a pile of junk to defend himself with against an increasingly aggressive horde of zombies. Players need only to flick the screen to throw dozens of truly weird and wonderful items at the horde in order to brutalize them with blunt for…

Fragmental 3D - Build Lines with Falling Blocks! Review

Review Aesthetic Interactive By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Fragmental 3D - Build Lines with Falling Blocks! Review

Recently we reviewed a couple 3D Tetris titles with Tetra3D leading the charge for a fun revival of this classic twist on an old-school arcade puzzle game. Given these releases it would be unfair to forget to review Fragmental 3D by Aesthetic Interactive, especially when this title made its debut earlier, making the comparison between these games quite interesting to say the least. Fragmental 3D differs in its approach by using default controls that are quite unique, requiring players…

Zombie Highway Review

Review Auxbrain, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Zombie Highway Review

Zombie Highway by Renderpaz is an endless arcade title of sorts that packs an interesting twist. Instead of merely dodging traps and enemies you'll have to weave your way down an endless highway littered with debris, scraping zombies off the sides of your vehicle as they jump on. It's the combination and balance of the game's mechanics that make this a deceptively simple game. While it's easy enough to dodge debris, you'll have to purposefully tilt your way against them to deal damage…

Dodonpachi Resurrection Review

Review CAVE CO.,LTD. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Dodonpachi Resurrection Review

NOTE: This game requires 3rd gen or higher devices (3GS, iPad, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 32/64gb) - CAVE recommends you try the LITE version when available to confirm compatability if you are unsure. As developer CAVE puts it in their description of Dodonpachi Resurrection, this shoot'em-up (shmup) is bullet heaven. But one man's heaven can be another man's hell so perhaps I should point out that this isn't going to appeal to everyone because 'manic' doesn't quite come close to how inte…

Cave Run Review

Review Ravenous Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Cave Run Review

It's deja vu time again and Cave Run by Ravenous Games brings another horizontal platform runner to the ever increasing party of titles. In order to score big you'll need to help your treasure-hunter to collect coins as he attempts to escape the crumbling depths of the cave he's stuck in. And much like others there's no real surprises with the controls, with a simple tap allowing you to jump higher depending on how long you hold down. This does become somewhat critical to keep an eye…

Dead Runner Review

Review Distinctive Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Dead Runner Review

I can't really put my finger on it, but Dead Runner by Distinctive Developments gets my spine tingling and it's hard to work out why it's so effective. Dead Runner's gameplay is (sorry to say it), dead simple. In both of the game's two available modes all you have to do is tilt and avoid solid obstacles blocking your way. In doing this you end up traveling through an endless forest of gnarled trees as you sprint away from the darkness behind you and in to the light beyond. Simple gam…

Super Mega Worm Review

Review Deceased Pixel LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Super Mega Worm Review

My initial impressions while playing Super Mega Worm from Deceased Pixel consisted of saying to myself, 'Oh wow, they totally made Tremors in to a video game!'. For those of you familiar with the classic horror-esque film, this will make a lot of sense, but for those not initiated just be prepared to make a big mess while eating your way through the entirety of humanity. What do I mean by this? Well you get to control a giant worm that is destined to cleanse the world of the human pla…

Knight's Rush Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Knight's Rush Review

'Knight's Rush' is Chillingo's newest game and an attempt to dive in to the side-scrolling beat'em-up world for their Knight's Onrush franchise. While it's easy to compare the basic idea to something like Castle Crashers on the XBLA, Knight's Rush is decidedly a single-player experience and a unique one at that. As you begin each new world in the campaign mode you'll be stripped of your levels and must start anew, beating down enemies in the form of flesh and blood creatures and the o…

Last Front: Europe Review

Review Plow Digital, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Last Front: Europe Review

We're digging through the archives a bit here, but Last Front: Europe by Plow Digital is one of those games I definitely regret not picking up on the first time around. Early on Last Front feels much like an open area tower defense title like Field Runners, giving you the option of placing towers with relative freedom to 'maze' incoming units. However as you progress through the campaign, unlocking new and diverse maps, you'll have to account for units with clever AI that attempt to o…
