Galaxy on Fire 2™ Review

Review FISHLABS By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 12 months ago
Galaxy on Fire 2™ Review

UPDATE (17th Feb, 2012): With update after update pushing Galaxy on Fire 2 further and further forward, there's no question that this title represents the best the platform has to offer in the Privateer-style of games currently available. From its numerous tweaks including visual overhauls and content updates (with Valkyrie), you'd be hard pressed to find a better example of the genre for handheld devices. As such a score deserving of these updates has now been awarded to Galaxy on Fir…

BIG BAD Flower Review

BIG BAD Flower Review

The idea of a giant flower taking over the world by encasing them in bubbles and blowing them away is just so madcap that I wonder if the flower's name is Bob. Obscure references aside, in BIG BAD Flower by BIG BAD BRUSH you'll need to draw bubbles around your enemies, ranging from fluffy critters to aliens in space in an attempt to blow them away, permanently. At first the idea is seems sound, with creatures appearing at set locations that need to be encased before eliminating them,…

Toyshop Adventures Review

Toyshop Adventures Review

With the amount of physics based platformers on the App Store it seemed all but inevitable for a game to appear based on Little Big Planet. Toyshop Adventures by Glu is a freemium title where you'll explore various toy themed areas in order to reclaim the shop owner's lost marbles, making use of power-ups purchased with these marbles (or with your own cash) to reach the many hidden niches in each level. Toyshop Adventures doesn't mess around with the controls and players can move thei…

Doug Brown Review

Doug Brown Review

If your day just isn't full of enough mini-games and you're not a fan of Noir-style movies or hard-boiled detective stories, then Doug Brown by Avallon Alliance might provide you with a brief moment of fun. For some reason best left unasked, your day as a detective has taken a turn for the interesting and you are faced with a series of odd-ball mini-games connected by a loose narrative string to justify the 30 seconds or less it takes to complete each one. These games range from strai…


Angry Birds Seasons Review

Angry Birds Seasons Review

It's hard to argue against the popularity of a game like Angry Birds and with 195 levels to master it's a heck of a great purchase. However it seems odd that the Halloween special edition has been released separately and for the same price as the original you get less content with no real change to the formula. If you're already addicted to Angry Birds then you'll hardly need an introduction to the physics-based gameplay, however if you're one of the few iDevice owners that still hasn…

Reckless Racing Review

Reckless Racing Review

The top-down racer has always been a great way to feed your motor lust when you're not quite in the mood for something more serious. Jostling your way up the pack while lazily drifting your way around large winding tracks has a strangely satisfying appeal and Reckless Racing by Electronic Arts does a great job of filling that 'not quite serious' racing category just perfectly. Initially players are given the option of playing around with one of several control setups, either using a c…

Captain Bombom. Review

Captain Bombom. Review

Captain Bombom by Toropot is yet another twin-stick shooter to throw on the pile, but before you discount it off-hand it's great to see a developer that tries to keep things flashy and exciting in an attempt to really stand out. Unfortunately it feels like everything including the kitchen sink has been thrown together in one large mix and it's easy to become overwhelmed early on by what's happening. To kick things off the movement seems to be bugged at the moment and the detection on…

MMA by EA SPORTS™ Review

MMA by EA SPORTS™ Review

Games that feature genuine fighting aren't easy to emulate thanks to the incredible amount of variety skill that goes in to these bouts. MMA by EA Sports is perhaps one of the best, if not the only game that tries to capture mixed martial arts in a way that feels authentic while still controlling comfortably for iDevices. To pull this off, players will need to master a handful of controls that, depending on the style of fighter you're using, will initiate one of a handful of attacks.…

Attraxxion Review

Attraxxion Review

Physics based puzzles have become a fairly standard title on the App Store and trying to stand out isn't always easy, especially when some top selling titles have held the limelight for so long. Attraxxion by Runaway Creations takes a decidedly different direction with its puzzle gameplay and instead of flinging objects past or around planets or trying to smash down a building, you're tasked with creating planetary objects to fill your quota. That's right, you're a robot that has been…

JETMonkey Review

JETMonkey Review

JETMonkey by Fan Studio is a side-scrolling endless title of a sort and while it's not perfect it certainly isn't lacking for creativity. In an attempt to colonize Mars to keep his banana's alive, the titular JETMonkey leaves a war-torn Earth and must fight the alien hordes for his right to farm. Developer Fan Studio has set out a long-term plan for their game, but for their initial release you'll get to take your monkey (though he does look more like an ape - perhaps I'm just being p…

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

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

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…
