Review LucasArts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge Review

Doodle God™ Review

Review JoyBits Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Doodle God™ Review

In a way, it's hard to call Doodle God a game. No wait, before you lynch me hear me out: All you do is click and combine things without a story to guide you, only a loose motivation to 'find them all'... So then why is it so darn addictive? Doodle God by JoyBits goes beyond its simple gameplay by cleverly mapping out connections that are logical and at times amusing to discover, making this an addictive and eventually a complex time waster. While I've already discussed the basic premi…

HexaLex Review

Review Nathan Gray By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
HexaLex Review

HexaLex by Nathan Gray is another crack at the hexagonal-grid form of Scrabble and it's at this point that a lot of readers may switch off, but hold on, it's honestly a great implementation. Small considerations such as additional rules which can be modified or even turned off make this an extremely challenging variation on a popular board game idea. For fans of word-games it's likely you've already stumbled on this title, but the recent 2.0 updates have added some great new features…

The Gravedigger Review

Its been said before on AppSpy, but nailing that true real-time strategy (RTS) feel doesn't seem to be easy for portable devices.

After selecting your allegiance with either the 'Gravedigger' or the 'Priest' you're launched in to a short 8 mission set of tutorial missions that slowly teach you how to control and maintain your armi…

Psychoban Review

Review Dedalord S.R.L. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Psychoban Review

Those familiar with Sokoban need little introduction to a title like Psychoban by Dedalord. For anyone that's lost in translation, you'll need to push blocks over the available switches in order to pass the levels in this devious puzzle title. It's a familiar style that has been explored before, but Psychoban adds an isometric 3D twist to make things a little more interesting. Moving your poor lobotomized patient is intuitive and only requires tapping on a valid spot. Selecting and mo…

Super Badminton Review

Super Badminton Review

UPDATE 25 July 2010: The latest updates have addressed some of the issues that bogged Super Badminton 2010 down and thankfully the AI has undergone a huge transformation. Movement still feels a bit wooden and lacks weight, but this is offset somewhat as players now seem to reach for the shuttlecock with more frequency. At this point, multiplayer would be a great addition, but for now it's great to see Super Badminton 2010 making it off the starting blocks and we have revised our score…


Veggie Samurai Review

Veggie Samurai Review

Without diving head-long in to the debate over what some consider a controversial release, Veggie Samurai by QuantumSquid Interactive is the unabashed vegetable-themed doppelganger to the immensely popular Fruit Ninja. The App Store certainly isn't a stranger to cloned titles, but some certainly tow the line a lot closer than others. The basic controls of Veggie Samurai remain the same as those for Fruit Ninja, with players swiping the screen to enact brutal vengeance against healthy…

Review Jagex Games Studio By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Miner Disturbance Review

Miner Disturbance is the latest free-Flash-to-iPhone adaption from developer Jagex Games Studio and for fans of this title you're in for a treat. Often it's hard to justify paying for a game that is otherwise free, but if you enjoyed plumbing the depths of just one mountain then you'll love the challenge of conquering 25 unique maps. Each level of the main game varies slightly in its goals, but for most your aim is to collect as much precious ore while avoiding pitfalls like drowning,…
