Spark It Up Review

Review sumiguchi By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Spark It Up Review

In Spark It Up by Sumiguchi you'll take part in a magical fireworks show, setting off each rocket while creating what could only be vaguely described as music in the process. Each of the game's six currently available levels features a unique sound track that is used in combination with touching the screen to generate musical sound. With each pass of the Lumines-esque bar across the screen you'll need to swipe or tap every rocket on screen to set them off and earn points. If three roc…

Review Nevercenter Ltd. Co. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
shibuya Review

Some games are downright devious in their attempts to keep players addicted to their games and Nevercenter, the creators of 'shibuya', have crafted their arcade puzzler with these cunning traps in mind.  The basic gameplay is amazingly unique and can take some time to wrap your head around and this is the first trap the sinks its claws in to you. Players need to line up two or more of the same colors to clear them off the board, however colors are given in a random order and can…

GEON™ Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
GEON™ Review

After its release on the iPad it was only a matter of time until GEON by Strawdog Studios made its way on to the iPhone as well. Published by Chillingo, this hyper-speed Pac Man style puzzle platformer is certainly flashy in its appearance, but instead of bringing the full experience from major consoles this pint-sized game trims back the fat to try and make it more appealing for on-the-go gamers. It's probably best to forget the game's tilt controls as this game demands far too much…

Fire Dragon Review

Review Joybean By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Fire Dragon Review

Fire Dragon by Joybean is an unfortunate arcade title where you must collect as much fruit as possible before various monsters or blocks of ice bludgeon you to death. It's a simple title and its controls match the simple theme with tilt controls to slide your dragon back and forth along his wooden platform and touching the screen to fire a burst of flame straight up. Various groups of fruit will drop from the sky and must be blasted to release them from their icy prison. If you're luc…


Assault Commando Review

Review 3D Magic Kft. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Assault Commando Review

What would you do if you were in a jungle with a swag of guns, tasked with a vague mission of taking out a world-domineering madman all the while dealing with a chronic psychological disorder where you must dispense a one-liner after almost every action you make? Why you'd saddle up and blow everything up to pieces 'cause you're playing Assault Commando by 3D Magic. The game's control system isn't anything too out of the ordinary, with a basic virtual stick and various buttons for wea…

Coastal Super-Combat Review

Coastal Super-Combat Review

Coastal Super-Combat by Triniti Interactive is yet another weapon-based defense title to add to the pile, but it has been some time since we've tried one of these games so lets see if anything new has cropped up. The controls definitely fall under the heading of 'if it's not broke, don't fix it' which means that players will need to drag and around their cross-hairs to aim each weapon while firing with another button and tilting to pan across the game field. After each level you'll be…

Review Big Mouse Media By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Hot Plates Review

UPDATE: First I must apologize for posting this review early in error, however most of the content still stands with a couple minor exceptions. The latest patch adds a new micro-game mode for periods where you only have a short time to play. It's a neat addition that solves the problem of the main game taking too long to reach a challenging level of play, but some difficulty selection would still be neat. Thanks to these changes and more (including minor achievements for prog…

Vampires Until Dawn Review

Vampires Until Dawn Review

Dusk Till Dawn is one of those films I love to throw up to watch not only because it's a fun film, but because it revels in its gritty, slap-dash style. Vampires Until Dawn by BeCrush pits you against vampire hordes south of the border as well, but unfortunately it's not quite as easy to love this game's gritty, slap-dash style. In this twin-stick shooter you'll take control of a man out for revenge against the vampiric foes that would dare to take the woman he loves. It's a schlocky…

Mirror's Edge™ Review

Oh how I've waited for this day to arrive! It has certainly been a long time coming for the iPhone version of EA's free-running title Mirror's Edge to make its appearance, but the wait has certainly been worthwhile. For those not fortunate enough to own an iPad this will be a wholly unique experience to enjoy, with a light and easy to master control system that mirrors the original game's intent to instill a true sense of 'flow' in movement. Faith is manipulated by basic swipes, gestu…

Spider-Man: Total Mayhem Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Spider-Man: Total Mayhem Review

Coming up to breathe after playing a long session of 'Spider-Man: Total Mayhem' by Gameloft was an eye opening experience - where did the day go? With so many action-brawlers trying to make their mark on the App Store it's great to see someone finally nailing it home and with a great franchise name behind it too no less. The controls are nothing new for the genre, however Total Mayhem manages to make switching between ranged, melee and jumping attacks feel completely smooth to execute…
