AirBear Review

Review Origin8 By Dave Flodine, 4 years ago
AirBear Review

'How far can you get?' games are quite popular. You can load them up, try and beat your high score and be on your merry way. Airbear by Origin8 Technolgies tries to combine the reach the stars gameplay of games like Doodle Jump, with trampolines. If you're playing through the Homeward Bound mode, there are also puzzle pieces in each area to collect that will unlock the bear's propeller hat. Control takes some time to get used to, and even then it can be frustrating. Trampolines are cr…

Hired Gun Review

Hired Gun Review

Are you restless and twitchy, perhaps you think the world moves too slowly? Then Hired Gun by Triniti Interactive is the game for you. iSniper has tread this ground before, but unless you have excellent perception and spider like reflexes Hired Gun can quickly become an exercise in frustration. After you're given your target for the randomly picked level you'll need to immediately find a way to slow down time like you're in the Matrix. Random people will pass along streets, in front o…

iMusic Puzzle Review

iMusic Puzzle Review

One feature that's lacking from a lot of music based games is the ability to bring iTunes in to the mix. iMusic Puzzle by I-play experiments with this idea by turning your iTunes catalog in to a series of arcade-style puzzles. iMusic splits tracks from iTunes in to tiny chunks that you have to sort and reorder to pass. These are represented by squares that you slide in to place in order to pass. Occasionally you'll run across bonus modes like a match-two or sorting game, but the basic…

FIGHTER TEDD Review

FIGHTER TEDD Review

If there's one thing that's almost universally considered annoying in single-player games, it's the 'escort' scenario. You know, it's that section of the game where you have to protect someone from hordes of enemies while managing to get in your way despite said dangers. TEDD by Sweet Studio has paired up side-scrolling beat'em-ups with the need to constantly protect someone, which makes the game a bitter-sweet experience. One of TEDD's major departures from regular beat'em-ups on the…

Likwid Review

Likwid Review

Fans of music based games and abstract puzzle solving will probably look at Likwid by FunMobility and say, 'Oh yeah, I've played that game before'. But instead of pointing fingers over who did what first, lets just admit that there's something about this particle-stream gameplay that's positively fascinating to play with. Instead of pretending to play an instrument with taps or swipes, players need to activate cogs by passing particles of the correct color over them. This is done by m…

Bounce On 2: Drallo's Demise Review

Barring the excellent return to form of Sonic Rush, SEGA have had troubles recapturing what made Sonic the Hedgehog such a great platformer. It's hard to shake the feeling that Team Phobic have cracked an element of what made Sonic so good and have distilled it in to their latest game Bounce On 2: Drallo's Demise. There are two basic movement controls with the default being tilt based, but for those who are more comfortable with virtual pads buttons are also available. The level of co…

App Gifting - Boon Or Boondoggle

App Gifting - Boon Or Boondoggle

After having had the ability to gift songs for so long now it's nice to know that you can finally gift an App to a friend. Generally speaking this was a great new feature for everyone involved, with developers getting a handful of extra sales from people pushing products for them and for consumers who now had more options for gifts. So what's so sinister about the Gift feature? Nothing on the face of it, but if you're a crafty company you could drop the price of your App to 'Free', gift your App to customers who have given you their email, then watch as your game rockets up the charts. Initially this sounds like a great idea, with customers getting free apps and developers getting almost…

The Saboteur™ Review

The Saboteur™ Review

The Saboteur, released by EA for major consoles was received with mild interest. Set in 1940's occupied France, you play Sean Devlin on his quest for revenge against the Nazis. Hands-On Mobile has just released an iPhone version of the game, but just like its bigger brother on the 360 and PS3 it's a great game that just manages to miss the mark in every way. Sean is controlled from an angled top-down 2D perspective as he runs around causing general amounts of mayhem and destruction. A…
