Green Jump Review

Review Baboonix LTD By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Green Jump Review

Much like the boldness displayed by the creators of Veggie Samurai, Baboonix have developed a rather blatant Doodle Jump clone in Green Jump - the first official game for Greenpeace on the App Store. But it's not entirely without merit as Green Jump keeps things simple and most importantly, fun. Players need only to tilt their device to help slide their green crusader around as he jumps off clouds to escape the rising smog. As you climb in to the stratosphere you can collect letters t…

1942: FIRST STRIKE Review

1942: FIRST STRIKE Review

Before titles like Street Fighter or Mega Man dominated the market for Capcom, 1942 was tearing up the Arcades and carried on as a popular series of shoot'em-ups. Recently the series had a revival on the XBox Live Arcade as a 3D amalgamation of the previous titles and now fans of the series can play a retro-remix of this title on their iDevices with '1942: FIRST STRIKE'. Players can switch between tilt-to-move or touch-and-swipe controls for maneuvering one of three available planes.…

Whacksy Taxi Review

Review Mindstorm Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
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? In this endless-style racer you'll dodge, jump and fly over traffic on your whirlwind tour of the US, just try not to blow up while nudging cars from the rear. Your Taxi has free reign of three lanes on its high-speed rampage, with various cars, SUVs and trucks blocking your way. Tapping the controls on either side of the screen will ju…

Review Streaming Colour Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
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 is an interesting take on endless gameplay by #App and combines RPG elements with horizontally scrolling SHMUP gameplay to keep you hooked.

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…
