TRON Review

Review Disney By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
TRON Review

TRON Legacy is still half a year away, so it's somewhat odd to get our hands on the movie tie-in game App this early. Sure, there's a marketing angle to be worked here, but I'm not about to look a gift horse in the mouth. TRON for the App Store is an action title where you control a tank from one of three different factions and compete for dominance over the internet. The tank is controlled much like a twin-stick shooter, with two analogue sticks representing the move and shoot functi…

Plunderland Review

Robbing the high-seas and fighting your way through blockades all in the name of booty is the pirate's dream. You'll have more than your share of both as you plunge in to Plunderland by Johnny Two Shoes and more to boot; set sail for madcap fun as you follow your ghastly ghost captain in to the deadly deeps. Players can take control of their crew through various means, tilting their device to sail back and forth or touching the screen to unleash your ghostly powers. Dragging your fing…

Review Snow Day Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Fly Vs. Car Review

In a show of good will, developer Snow Day Games have released their latest game 'Fly Vs. Car' with the promise that half of their profits will be going to the Child's Play Charity. It's a noble idea and hopefully not the last attempt at supporting this great cause, but you may need to be feeling extremely charitable to get on-board. In this game, players can control a fly by tilting the screen left and right and must avoid cars that regularly blitz their way down the highway. It's a…

RISK Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
RISK Review

Well here it is. The real thing. After an official partnering between Hasbro and Electronic Arts we now have the first legitimate 'RISK' title for the App Store, but was it really worth the wait when so many competitors already roaming the same territory? It's a natural question to ask, especially considering there have been variations on the 'world domination' board-game gameplay since the iPhone was released. Gameplay follows the strict basic rulings of the board game and players ca…

Zen Bound® 2 Universal Review

Review Secret Exit Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Zen Bound® 2 Universal Review

We've walked down this path before; there's a quiet sense of guilt in taking pleasure over tying up inanimate objects with rope. Zen Bound 2 by Secret Exit builds upon their already excellent title by pushing iDevices to their visual limits while adding more content and modes to enjoy. The key to mastering Zen Bound is simplicity in itself, with smooth and intuitive gestures allowing players to twist each object in the ultimate goal of painting it from a neutral wooden state. Swiping…

Magnetic Shaving Derby Review

Review Nyarlu Labs By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Magnetic Shaving Derby Review

After checking out the screenshots for Magnetic Shaving Derby (MSD) you'd be forgiven for steering clear, opting not to jump in to what clearly looks like a crazy title. Nyarlu Labs have succeeded in distilling iconic and random concepts in to a title that's easy to play and fun to experience. Players can choose between touch or tilt controls for their magnet, however thanks to the way the physics simulation works neither one is truly superior to the other. Dragging your magnet around…

A Bloody Fun Day! Review

Review The Binary Mill By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
A Bloody Fun Day! Review

In a somewhat odd turn for The Binary Mill, the publisher has adapted the wildly popular free Flash title 'A Bloody Fun Day!' by Urban Squall for the App Store. In this addictive title you play as a 'Reaper', harvesting the souls of hapless 'Cuties' with no other goal than to continue on your bloody rampage for as long as possible. Gameplay is set on a small hexagonal grid and players can move their reaper one space at a time with a tap, harvesting one of several different colored sou…

Gravity Block Review

Review Playsteria By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Gravity Block Review

Gravity Block by Playsteria is nominally a physics based puzzler, but leaving it there would be doing the game a disservice. Much like Labyrinth-clones, players must transport an inanimate block to the exit through a maze of conveyor belts, traps, disappearing walls and warps, but instead of analogue tilt controls all you can do is change the direction of gravity. The screen is split in to quadrants, allowing you to quickly tap and redirect the direction your cube can fall in. A small…

Cooking Academy Review

Review Fugazo, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Cooking Academy Review

While it's not an immensely cloned style, the Cooking Mama school of gameplay with its mix of mini-games that aim to teach (at least in a rough sense) players how to cook has attracted its imitators. Cooking Academy by Fugazo takes a stab at improving on the formula for the App Store and takes players through a strict course of lessons to add to their culinary expertise. To progress through Cooking Academy you'll have to complete a series of courses, along with a final exam. Each food…
