Intuitive controls are employed for moving around the screen via swipes, pinching to zoom and dragging objects to position them for construction. A catch-all build button…

Whacksy Taxi Review

Whacksy Taxi by Mindstorm Studios is a bogglingly fun title for one simple reason: Who'd have thought that Outrun could become MORE of an Arcade game?

Prisoner 84 Coming Soon

Indie Developers Hidden Games are currently developing a third-person action/adventure game called Prisoner 84 for the iPhone and iPod Touch. A preview trailer has been released, though not showing much action, gives a good idea of the look of the game, which kind of reminded me of Golden Eye 007 for the N64 but with a bit more work needed.

LandFormer Review

LandFormer Review

Elegant, thought provoking playground-style puzzle games really get my brain to light up like a Christmas Tree and not since Path Pix have I felt so excited about a game like LandFormer by Streaming Colour Studios. In this puzzler, players will need to use a limited set of tools to raise and lower the landscape in a 5x5 grid to return the world back to a pristine flat plain. There are several restrictions that help to limit the complexity with only six tools in total, each with their…

FlyChick Review

Review #App By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
FlyChick Review

FlyChick is an interesting take on endless gameplay by #App and combines RPG elements with horizontally scrolling SHMUP gameplay to keep you hooked. As you destroy enemies or complete 'missions' your chick will also upgrade, gaining a bit of extra health and changing his appearance to show just how bad-ass he's becoming. FlyChick uses a tap-to-fly system while automatically firing your weapon. Holding down will allow you to fly higher, while rhythmic taps help to keep you flying relat…

Review Top Evidence Studio By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
iHook Review

iHook by Top Evidence Studio is a strange breed of physics-based puzzle platformer that might be hard to get in to, but once you wrap your head around its frustrating puzzle concepts you might just find yourself addicted to its challenging gameplay. At its basic level you need to pilot a ship to the exit using only a limited amount of available 'hook' points that allow you to turn from your fixed direction. Players can tap the ship to immediately reverse its direction or deploy a seco…

Juggle! Review

Review Denki By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Juggle! Review

It's been shown time and again, but sometimes the simplest of ideas can be the most powerful. Juggle! by Denki has stripped back the old brick-and-paddle gameplay (think Arcanoid) to it's basic level, bouncing objects - often many at a time - off a tiny moveable paddle. Juggle! is played in a vertical orientation, with a relatively small paddle that quickly moves across the bottom of the screen at the lightest touch. At first this feels excessive and awkward, but additional balls cont…

Crystal War Review

Review GNC INTERACTIVE By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Crystal War Review

Crystal War by GNC INTERACTIVE has taken its basic inspirations from obvious sources and brings their own spin to the Trenches style of gameplay with a touch of Warcraft to create something truly fascinating. Opponents are placed at either end of the screen, often requiring some scrolling to reach the other side, while crystals (the game's form of currency) fill the land between. Harvesters can gather the crystals, which then goes towards purchasing units in order to push back your en…
