Need for Speed™ Hot Pursuit Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Need for Speed™ Hot Pursuit Review

I know you can't see my face at the moment, but if you could you'd notice the burning hunger in my eyes, the small beads of sweat at the edges of my brow and possibly the gnawing of my lip as I attempt to concentrate while I write. I really want to get back to playing Need for Speed™ Hot Pursuit. After a few breaths and a drink of water I've calmed down and I realize that it's a shame the game only features tilt controls, however barring my own stupidity the game never really fa…

MADDENING Review

Review YoYo Games Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
MADDENING Review

'What is old will be new again', or so the saying goes and while some developers charge forward, attempting to reinvent genres, others have taken a step back, attempting to turn simple concepts in to elegant and entertaining games. MADDENING by YoYo Games is an abstract platformer and players are challenged to navigate a circular sequence of platforms before being consumed by a slowly accelerating wall of death. Unlike some abstract platformers, players are given the ability to move f…

Silverfish Review

Review Chaotic Box By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Silverfish Review

Silverfish by Chaotic Box looks like a twin-stick shooter and feels like a twin-stick shooter, so you'd be forgiven for dismissing it as just another twin-stick shooter... But it's not. With merely one finger you'll dispense destruction and chaos while attempting to either scavenge for morsels of food, bide your time to become the predator and not the prey or to simply attempt to survive against the odds. Instead of mucking around with virtual d-pads, analogue sticks or tilt controls,…

Q Pang Review

Review BOBTAN studio By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Q Pang Review

Q Pang by BOBTAN studio isn't above playing with cliches. You're a cat out to defend his planet from gelatinous aliens with a delusion of universal dominance and you'll have to deploy cakes, bombs and a few bullets to keep them at bay; you know, that old chestnut. What? You haven't heard it before? Well no matter, you'll slip right in to things despite the somewhat odd translation and spelling mistakes for the English text. Over five worlds, each with five increasingly difficult level…

Smurfs' Village Review

Review Beeline Interactive, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Smurfs' Village Review

I guess it was only a matter of time before someone realized that the Smurfs lived in a village, 'And hey! What a great idea it'd be if you could manage that little town?!'. So, lo and behold, Capcom have created the official Smurfs' Village and all your usual Farmville-ish obsessions can now be dedicated to defending the Smurfs from their ever present nemesis, Gargamel. Much like other freemium farm/town management style titles, you'll need to earn levels through experience earned fr…

Epic War 3 - War of Heroes Review

Review Artlogicgames By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Epic War 3 - War of Heroes Review

Epic War 3 - War of Heroes by Artlogicgames represented a wild divergence from their previous Flash games in the series, leaving behind a clunky castle defense system that has seen too many clones already. Instead of micro-managing your income, clicking wildly at icons and throwing the occasional spell, Epic War 3 tries to add a bit of strategy while leaving the tedious chore of spawning creatures to the computer. The game's focus is turned away from mere defensive pushes and players…

Stenches: A Zombie Tale of Trenches Review

Review Thunder Game Works By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Stenches: A Zombie Tale of Trenches Review

Over time, Trenches by Thunder Game Works has added features, game modes and even multiplayer to round out its simple, yet addictive trench-warfare gameplay. Stenches: A Zombie Tale of Trenches extends the popular Zombie Horde mode from the original in to its own package and you'll have to face new enemies and make use of a new system to survive the horror. The basic gameplay from Trenches remains the same, with players deploying units on to the field and directing them to various tre…

Supremacy Wars Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Supremacy Wars Review

Most people would recognise the gameplay in Civilizations Wars from previous games like Galcon Labs, but in this latest title for Chillingo players have a few tricks up their sleeves that will help and hinder their army in turn while battling other civilizations and more than a few monsters as well. Players are faced with needing to control their population to grow, defend and attack neutral and enemy forces to claim various landmarks. For each building that is claimed the population…

SteamBirds Review

Review Spry Fox, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
SteamBirds Review

Fusion powered steam engines have changed history as we know it and now mankind is fighting a battle in the skies in their steam-powered vehicles. It's steam-punk meets turn-based strategy in SteamBirds, though this isn't the first time we've had a chance to dabble with this system. Those lucky enough to have spotted this title earlier in the year might just jump at the chance to play this on their iPhones, but for those who haven't I'm sure the idea of turn-based aerial combat might…

Real Racing 2?

News By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Real Racing 2?

So apparently this is happening - and it's surprising that something as simple as hinting at Real Racing 2 being on the horizon is enough to put me on the edge of my seat. I know I should have waited till more info was available, but tell me you aren't interested to see what the next Real Racing is going to be like! ;) More news as we can crowbar it out of Firemint.…


Necronomicon Review

Review Lucidsphere Media, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Necronomicon Review

Like many others around the world, I have a passion for the work of H.P. Lovecraft and while his work has long since entered in to cliche for the horror genre, a giddy little shiver of glee always tingles down my spine when the Mythos is used in various media. Necronomicon by Lucidsphere Media attempts to bottle some of this blood-freezing terror in the form of a card game, however players are more likely to lose their sanity attempting to understand what to do instead of at the hands…

Chrominance Review

Review Andrea Mazzini By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Chrominance Review

Chrominance by Andrea Mazzini and EFlat Games challenges players to mix their skills at timing and combining colors to score it large in this strange physics based arcade title. Orbs of paint will make their way on to the screen at regular intervals, but should they collide with another orb they'll combine and splatter over the background. To score you'll need to make sure this combination lands on the correctly colored background by swiping them around the screen and if you're playin…

Paperboy: Special Delivery Review

Review Glu Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Paperboy: Special Delivery Review

Ahhh good old Paperboy... how I remember wasting far too much money on you in the arcade until I wised up and realized I didn't enjoy butting my head against games that are so unforgiving. While Paperboy: Special Delivery isn't the first attempt at adapting this classic game, Glu's version shouldn't be leaving us any time soon like the first release. Players can opt to take control of their paperboy either through pure tilt controls, a combination of touch and tilt or a via a simple v…

Gobliiins Review

Review Bulkypix By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Gobliiins Review

Gobliiins is arguably best referred to as the kind of title that causes some fan-boys to glaze over with rose-tinted memories of glee, but playing it again without the aid of nostalgic hindsight can be cruel on these memories. While the fourth installment of this series was released last year, it's odd that Bulkypix would choose to port it over to the App Store given its somewhat 'eclectic' appeal. In this adventure you'll take control over three goblins, each with their own unique sk…

Amateur Surgeon 2 Review

Review [adult swim] By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Amateur Surgeon 2 Review

Alan Probe and his backyard surgery antics are back again in Amateur Surgeon 2, but things aren't quite the same as before as Alan is now a retiree (forced) and his skills have atrophied over time. At least that's the reason they've given for needing to polish up your skills from scratch again, but then again I'm all for any excuse to perform life threatening operations out of a dirty bathtub. Much like the previous title you'll play a virtual game of Operation (or for Nintendo gamers…
