Birdie In Trouble Review

Birdie In Trouble Review

It's stating the obvious, but puzzle games are often hard to wrap your head around. Past the initial stages you're left spending more time staring at a screen than you are actually playing the game. Birdie In Trouble by Klik! Games encourages players to a bit of trial and error as you send your little chick back home, which is at least more exciting than waiting for the cogs to shift in your brain. Jumping in to the 75 available levels couldn't be easier, with players invited to touch…

Monster Crush - Demolition Review

Review 628 Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years ago
Monster Crush - Demolition Review

We've all seen physics simulators used in a slew of games, but few have gone quite so far as Monster Crush by 628 Games. Demolishing buildings and crushing enemies might make this sound like another game like Angry Birds, but for the first time buildings and material are given an almost complete set of destructible properties that you'll need to take full advantage of. As the title suggests the main aim of the game is to crush the bad guys, in this case a race of aliens. To pull this…

OS 4.0, Game Center and Developers (Oh My).

The much anticipated OS 4.0 keynote speech has left the industry in a whirlwind of talk, cluttering blogs, twitter and just about any other social feed you can get your hands on. There's an overwhelmingly positive reaction to the changes that have been discussed, but just what can people expect when 4.0 hits? Live coverage of the event has wrapped up and as to be expected, audiences were left slightly awed by the promises Apple have made for their next major OS update. Much needed features for the iDevice range have been announced including: multitasking and background App processing; folder based app organization; and UI upgrades for the email client, certainly topped the list for most con…

Paper Bridge Review

Paper Bridge Review

Paper Bridge by Clever Hamster Games brings bridge building games back to its roots, using simple physics and simple mechanics to give gamers a chance to relax their lateral thinking brain and give some air to their literal thinking brain. I'm fairly sure I just made those last two things up, but where games like Tiki Towers may require you to think outside the box, Paper Bridge lets you stick to basic engineering principles to get the job done. Only three tools are given to draw your…

Babeorella Review

Review doublesix By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years ago
Babeorella Review

Babeorella by doublesix knows its audience and much like Daisy Mae of the Alien Buffet, she's a spicy heroine that's not afraid to put her body on the line. Jane Fonda references aside, Babeorella is an endless action brawler that tries hard to keep your attention in almost any way possible. Movement is controlled by an analogue stick while attacks are grouped in to three buttons for variety. Two buttons are used for light and heavy attacks, with three variations available to each dep…

Apple's Sinister Development

A physical control pad for Apple's iDevices would be a good idea, but it's not necessarily a new one. Craig Rothwell, inventor of the iControlPad is proud of his product and after a patent by Apple with the same concept was recently revealed, he immediately showed signs of being upset. PatentlyApple recently revealed the patent which was filed almost six months after the iControlPad first made its debut. Craig Rothwell's development blog quickly posted a response titled 'An extremely sinister development' last Friday. "We were very very surprised to see that apple have allegedly filed a patent for our original iControlPad design some 6 months after we revealed it," says Rothwell, "This w…

ToonWarz Review

Review Polarbit By Dave Flodine, 4 years ago
ToonWarz Review

FPS' on the iphone can be problomatic. No matter how well they're made, a bad control scheme can be a death sentence. That's kind of Toonwarz in a nutshell. Either playing through the single player campaign or the multiplayer, your enjoyment of this title depends on whether or not you can come to grips with the controls. There are two schemes available. Both technically use twin control sticks, it's just the default scheme hides the look stick and adds the shoot and jump button around…

Hands On Preview - 'Tiptop: the last march'

I think I've managed to play Lemmings on just about every conceivable mainstream platform available, starting with my copy on the Amiga and working through various iterations on the PC, Genesis, Game Boy, Mobile Phones and on and on and on. I honestly think it's a gaming staple that everyone should try in some shape or form. Why? Well I honestly think there's nothing quite like knowing you have to help a bunch of the poor defenseless creatures left in your charge only to know you'll have to sacrifice at least some to ensure your victory. Sure they're just pixels, but they're so helpless... and you're so powerful! Clearly it's your fault they didn't survive! 'Tiptop: the last march' is a…
