Beast Boxing 3D - Monster Fighting Action! Review

Beast Boxing 3D - Monster Fighting Action! Review

Where games like Super KO Boxing went for a classic Punch-Out! style for their arcade boxing gameplay, Beast Boxing 3D by Goodhustle Studios tries to up the ante by sticking with touch controls and a 3D design that's clever and gorgeous to watch in action. Jumping in to Beast Boxing couldn't be more intuitive and players have access to three basic punch types thanks to tapping and swiping the screen. Quick jabs only require a tap, but hooks and uppercuts are triggered by swiping acros…

Riddim Ribbon Review

Review Tapulous, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Riddim Ribbon Review

If you're a fan of rhythm games then it's hard not to have come across Tapulous and their Tap Tap Revenge series. However, the company has since decided to spread its wings and attempt something new and now players can try their side-project Riddim Ribbon without needing to listen to The Black Eyed Peas. Much like Tapulous' other basic packs this is a free title packaged with a few songs and access to a store with song packs to add to your collection. In this title you'll be presented…

Boondock Saints Mobile Game Review

Review Boondock Saints, LLC. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Boondock Saints Mobile Game Review

Boondock Saints Mobile Game isn't so much a movie-to-game title as it is a game associated with a film. That's my subtle way of trying to cover my eyes and ears and hope that this game was some sort of mistake. If you haven't given yourself over to the magic that is The Boondock Saints, then I wholly recommend you go and watch the film now. For those of you that stayed you're going to have a slightly less pleasant experience. This title is ostensibly a twin-stick shooter, though the s…


Worms 2: Armageddon Review

Review Team17 Software Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Worms 2: Armageddon Review

Finally! Worms 2: Armageddon Holy Grenades to shove in your face by Team17 has slipped on to the App Store and much of what made the original title irksome to enjoy has been fixed, leaving you with the juicy, classic worm on worm action you've come to expect of the franchise. The controls haven't seen much in the way of changes, though for the most part the ability to aim and get around the level was never too hard. Touching each side of the screen will wiggle you in that direction, b…

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
WackyLands Boss Review

OK, so you've collected the three magical keys to open the portal that lets you enter the evil overlord's lair and the mystical armor and weaponry you have equipped will keep you safe from his nefarious spells, but did you stop to think about the evil monster's feelings? WackyLands Boss by Fair Play Labs and Chillingo gives you the chance to find out just what motivates an evil monster as you mow your way across the countryside, flinging heroes left and right to get that perfect view f…

Zombies : The Last Stand Review

Review Chris Egerter By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Zombies : The Last Stand Review

What's most surprising about trying Zombies : The Last Stand (ZTLS) is that despite its heavy requirements the game just looks and feels so bland. Sure, running around and killing zombies may not have the same exciting flair it used to, but it shouldn't feel like such a chore. ZTLS is set in a first-person perspective and the controls are what you'd expect, with a virtual stick to move on the left, swiping to aim and a fire button in the right corner. Weapons can also be swapped via a…


ChuChu Rocket! Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
ChuChu Rocket! Review

If you never had a chance to play ChuChu Rocket! the first time around on the Dreamcast, then you're in for a treat as SEGA have ported this title over for the App Store. This classic puzzle title of 'cat and mouse' antics takes a somewhat surreal twist as you attempt to help the mice (Chu-Chus) to escape the clutches of the hungry cats (Kapu-Kapu). Both the mice and the cats will run endlessly around in loops, turning to their right every time they hit a surface and you'll need to di…

Age of Zombies™ Review

Review Halfbrick Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Age of Zombies™ Review

Monster Dash was only the start of the adventures of Barry Steakfries and now devotees of his monster-stomping ways can blast through time and space in Halfbrick Studio's latest release, Age of Zombies. At first glance, the game couldn't seem more conventional as you blast away at zombies with a pistol loaded with infinite ammo and maneuver your barely shaven hero around the screen with twin-stick controls. But then the little details start to shine through and what should be just ano…

Rugby Nations 2010 Review

Rugby Nations 2010 Review

Some sports just don't seem to quite make the transition to video games well and while Rugby Nations 2010 by Distinctive Developments tries hard to capture the non-stop action of Rugby, the flow of the game feels jilted and it's hard to feel like you're completely in control. Rugby is a hectic game at the best of times and it can be hard to keep track of what is happening to each player at every moment, but the game makes up for this by giving players a handy indicator to show whether…

Linkoidz Review

Review Retro Dreamer By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Linkoidz Review

It's so easy to expect a new three-match title to be nothing more than an elaborate redesign of those that came before it and while it may be cynical to think this way, the upside is that when someone does do something new it tends to stand out like a sore thumb. Linkoidz by Retro Dreamer dispenses with mere gem swapping and players will need to rearrange the field by plucking orbs from the bottom and feeding them back up again in order to create vertical stacks of three or more that…

Phoenix Review

Review Firi Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Phoenix Review

UPDATE: Sometimes it only takes a small change to make a big impact and the updates released for Phoenix have made it a definite must-have for shooter fans; providing a polished level of skill-based gameplay that's appealing thanks to its dynamic difficulty system. Changes to the power-up system add a new layer of depth for hardcore gamers to master and at this point it's safe to say Phoenix is definitely focused on appealing to this crowd instead of a broader audience. With this in mi…

Review FISHLABS By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month 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

Review BIG BAD BRUSH inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
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

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

Review Avallon Alliance Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
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…
