Crimson Gem Saga Review

Review SK Telecom By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Crimson Gem Saga Review

In a move I would love to see followed by other major RPG developers, Atlus' JRPG title 'Crimson Gem Saga' has found its way on to the App Store and fans of the genre will dive right in and feel at home with its simple, classic style.  Converting a title to the iPhone isn't always a smooth process and sometimes that controls are likely to suffer in the transition and Crimson Gem Saga is no different in this regard. Sticking with the 'fixed' control is heartily recommended and pla…

Dark Nebula - Episode Two Review

Review Free Lunch Design AB By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Dark Nebula - Episode Two Review

'Dark Nebula - Episode 2' by 1337 Game Design is the latest in the Dark Nebula series to grace the App Store and fans of the original can expect bigger and better things from this self-proclaimed Labyrinth 'on steroids'. Dark Nebula places you in control of an orb traveling through six different environments and 19 levels, tilting your way through dangerous trap filled zones and in a new twist you'll also be able to bring the fight to your enemies with a brand new combat system. The t…

Chop Chop Soccer Review

Review Gamerizon By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Chop Chop Soccer Review

The Chop Chop series from Gamerizon expands again as gamers are now set to try their hands (or hand as it were) at an arcade-style Soccer title. The signature one-finger style of control that has defined this sometimes amazing series has continued through to Chop Chop Soccer as well. In order to accommodate the rather stripped back control scheme, Chop Chop Soccer does away with any faithful recreation of the classic football game and sticks to the basics with teams consisting of thre…

Kaboom's Paratrooper Review

Review Kaboom Industries LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Kaboom's Paratrooper Review

Kaboom's Paratrooper is a stunningly simple new title from Kaboom Apps where you'll have successfully land as many paratroopers as possible while avoiding hazards on the way down. It's a simple idea, but Kaboom's elegant style makes this an easy game to jump in to and enjoy. After pushing your way through the initial tutorial levels, you'll gain full control over the fate of your paratroopers. Tapping planes as they zoom past will release one paratrooper per tap which will need to be…

Armageddon Review

Armageddon Review

In Armageddon from Meridian you'll need to keep your wits about you in order to out muscle and out play your enemies. Why will you need your wits secure? Well like many titles in the army-spawning style of 'strategy' games you'll need to replay levels over and over again in order to mass enough cash to successfully complete future levels and maybe it's just me, but I'm more interested in the campaign, not repeating levels. Much like other similar titles, you have a slowly rising reser…

Master of Alchemy Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Master of Alchemy Review

Fans of physics based puzzlers are in for a treat as Master of Alchemy by DarkWave Studios and Chillingo has made the jump from the iPad to the iPhone, bringing its own unique brand of particle based physics and complex puzzles for you to solve on the run. I've often had a lot of bad luck with the controls to these sorts of games and Master of Alchemy is no exception, with the menus and placement of objects being too slow and cumbersome to accurately place objects and gain high scores…

Finger Balance Review

Finger Balance Review

Finger Balance by Coconut Island is one of those rare games where you can't help but wonder why it took so long to come about. Should you take the plunge you'll find yourself holding a board with your fingers, balancing a ball that can roll freely while attempting to navigate it through complex and even moving mazes. The controls are simplicity itself, with two buttons that, when held down, activate a board that will change size and angle depending on where you shift your two fingers.…

Graveyard Shift Review

Review PunBros Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Graveyard Shift Review

The dead have risen again and you're short of cash, so it's off to the graveyard to work the overnight shift and knock those skeletons back in to their restful slumber. Graveyard Shift by PunBros is a physics based puzzle title in the style of games like Tumbledrop and Saving Private Sheep, but in this game you'll need to figure out each level's Rube Goldberg-esque solutions to put the undead back where they belong. In each level, various blocks are balanced in a precarious setup and…

Gravity Hook HD Review

Gravity Hook HD Review

Gravity Hook HD by Semi Secret Software is not for the feint of heart. One thing Semi Secret seems to excel at is managing to make a simple concept work perfectly as an addictive title, but unlike Canabalt, you're going to have to work hard for your highscore in this remake of their classic 8-bit Flash original. Your goal is simply to make your way up as high as possible and you achieve this by throwing out hooked claws to gain purchase on various orbs in an attempt to maintain your m…

Tap Master I Review

Tap Master I Review

When a developer from Revoc Technologies contacted us about Tap Master I, he was adamant that this game, as simple as it may seem, was extremely addictive. Skeptical as I was of the usual PR pitch, he wasn't kidding; there's something bizarrely addictive about trying to out-do yourself and others at even simple tasks. Tap Master I packs five different 'tap' themed games that are quick and easy to play, but getting that top score isn't easy. It's hard to call these games, but thanks to…

Farm Break Review

Review Mindstorm Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Farm Break Review

Three wiley sheep are fed up with their lot on the farm and have a brilliant idea, "Why not steal the farmer's stash of cash and make like bandits?". It's a hair-brain scheme that gets Sally, Knukkles and Big Jim locked up, but they're not having a bar of it and you'll have to help them escape in Farm Break by Sheep Factory and Mindstorm Studios. In a way, Farm Break is another take on the Lost Vikings style of puzzle platforming, giving you individual control over three sheep that ea…

Sailor Dog Review

Review Andreas Johansson By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Sailor Dog Review

If you told me to try playing a game about a dog bouncing on the back of a swan in an origami-styled theme I'd have looked at you funny, then said 'yes', if only out of sheer curiosity. In Sailor Dog by Andreas Johansson you'll be bouncing around the ocean collecting balloon suspended bones while dodging catfish and other creatures out to sink your adventure. The basic gameplay is not unlike a vertical endless jumper, with your dog bouncing off the swan's head and anything else he can…

SimCity™ Deluxe Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
SimCity™ Deluxe Review

If you're wondering where SimCity on the App Store went, well here it is again with a fresh coat of paint as SimCity Deluxe. Perhaps that's being unfair though as where SimCity felt absolutely tragic to play, SimCity Deluxe corrects and improves the game to near pristine levels and is certainly a welcome update from Electronic Arts. If you're unfamiliar with the SimCity series, your single aim is to create a successful city, managing its development and tweaking things to ensure your…
