iBomber Defense Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
iBomber Defense Review

On the surface of it, iBomber Defense is as radical as departures go for developer Cobra Mobile and their iBomber franchise. However, this latest release for Chillingo shows nothing less than the polished skill expected of their developers and fans of tower defense titles can jump right in without hesitation. iBomber Defense uses a traditional and familiar tower defense style, with enemies following paths set out for them while towers can be positioned and upgraded at fixed locations…

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 Review

Review Warner Bros. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 Review

It's hard not to have been infected with Potter-fever over the last decade and while it's not a universally loved franchise, there is certainly enough fandom to justify the pairing with LEGO's popular game series. Matching the two is a recipe for obsessive compulsive gaming that stretches generations and even if you've played the title on other consoles you're likely to lose just as much time on this release. But first lets address the elephant in the corner, the controls; in particul…

Star Wars Arcade: Falcon Gunner Review

Review THQ Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Star Wars Arcade: Falcon Gunner Review

NOTE: Falcon Gunner requires 3rd gen or higher iDevices to run optimally. Furthermore, we apologize for the lack of a video review for this title; the controls made it all but impossible to film and we are seeking alternative options for demonstrating the gameplay. I'm not going to lie to you; Star Wars Arcade: Falcon Gunner by THQ is a seriously fun game and one that only gets better if you have the right equipment for it. However, the fun can quickly turn in to mild frustration and…


The Lord of the Rings: Middle-earth Defense Review

Review Glu Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
The Lord of the Rings: Middle-earth Defense Review

So how does one actually go about making a tower-defense game out of The Lord of the Rings franchise? While there are moments in which a traditional TD could work, extending it to the whole story would seem out of place. But unsurprisingly, Glu have considered this obvious hiccup and the solution was an altogether elegant one: Why not make the heroes of the story in to towers? Instead of literal towers, each hero and incidental character is turned in to an attacking unit that has a li…

Mushihimesama BUG PANIC Review

Review CAVE CO.,LTD. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Mushihimesama BUG PANIC Review

PLEASE NOTE: Mushihimesama BUG PANIC is currently restricted to 3rd gen or higher iDevices; please ensure that your device is compatible before purchasing this title. Mushihimesama BUG PANIC by CAVE is the third in a series of titles following the adventures of Reco, a princess that has a telepathic link to the bugs of the Shinju Forest. In typical fashion for the developer, the first two titles were vertical shoot'em-ups, however this latest title takes a risk as it departs from the…

Animals on Board Review

Review Meteor Creations Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Animals on Board Review

Noah is in a rush to get his job done and in Animals on Board by Meteor Creations you'll need to help him to pack the Ark full of creatures. The catch is that you'll need to keep things balanced as the Ark isn't quite large enough to hold all the creatures, but thanks to divine strength and what seems like super-glue coated animals, you might just get the job done. Throwing animals on board the Ark requires you to drag and set the aim and power of the throw you're about to make. This…

Lightning Fighter Review

Review Uwan Studio By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Lightning Fighter Review

It's hard to fight for individual attention with so many exciting and action-packed shoot'em-ups to choose from on the App Store, but Lightning Fighter by Uwan Studio is definitely trying to make its voice heard. Releasing a shmup so close on the heels of a major release from a developer like CAVE makes this even riskier, but Lightning Fighter is certainly no slouch as far as shmups go. The game features an interesting control system that switches between tilt and touch controls on-th…

SPLATTERHOUSE Review

SPLATTERHOUSE Review

Back in the day when Arcades weren't just a collection of networked racing titles, light gun shooters or ticket machines, I had a bit of a crush for SPLATTERHOUSE. I don't mean to say I loved the game, but at the time I loved what it represented: the gritty, gory side of gaming. And now  Namco Networks America have resurrected this classic and incredibly difficult beat'em-up. Though to be fair this difficulty comes from the controls instead of the game itself, though three diffic…

RAGE HD Review

Review id Software By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
RAGE HD Review

PLEASE NOTE: The 'HD' version is optimized for fourth generation devices (iPhone 4 / iTouch 4) and the iPad, however the iPhone 3GS is also supported. Older iDevices should grab RAGE, which is a separate App with the same gameplay and toned down visuals. Gamers still have a while to wait till they get their hands on id Software's upcoming post-apocalyptic title 'Rage', however gamers after a taste of this mutant-filled madness can get started right now by picking up the App Store titl…

SKIP SD Review

Review Life-Giving By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
SKIP SD Review

SKIP SD by Life-Giving studios places you behind the controls of an elite fighter in the Special 'Kaizen' Infiltration Platoon (SKIP for short) as you attempt to complete your mission in the post-World War 3 Earth of 2087. Or so I've had to garner from the App Store description as the game unceremoniously flings you in to a tunnel with little more than the title of the area you're in. This may be a small oversight, but it's something of a running theme with SKIP SD as you're left wond…


Word Freeze Review

Review GAMEBOTICS Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Word Freeze Review

It has been a while since we've delved in to the madness that is word-puzzle titles, so it's great to finally kick things off again with Word Freeze by GAMEBOTICS. While the basic 'word search' gameplay is nothing terribly new, players are confronted with the challenge of dealing with 'frozen' letters that can block and limit the work-space that you have available. Each letter is contained in a sliding block that can move with relative freedom and if players rotate the screen they can…

Pee Monkey Plant Bloom Review

Review Happylatte Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Pee Monkey Plant Bloom Review

There's just no getting around it... things are going to be said and I'm in the unfortunate position of having to say them, but it's hard not to feel a little bit weird when you start talking about Pee Monkey Plant Bloom by happylatte. I mean, the name says it all really; you'll need to pee on plants with a monkey to help the garden to grow. The gameplay itself is not unlike that of games like Angry Birds and players have a limited amount of... 'shots'... to make the plants bloom. Dra…

Review blacksmith games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Animeals Review

In Floop by blacksmith games, food has suddenly become sentient and somewhat suicidal as it attempts to fling itself in to the waiting maw of an animal that clearly understands the dynamics of this eater/eaten relationship. Players are given control over an acorn/block of cheese/banana that can be flung around the screen by dragging back on the piece of food to give it a trajectory. Each of the game's 50 levels features a variety of objects that can get in your way, however without a…
