Cut the Rope Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Cut the Rope Review

Gah! I seem to be experiencing a cute overload lately - my manliness (NB: may not actually be manly) is experiencing some withdrawals. Aww to heck with it... Om Nom is just too darn cute to get angry at and I blame Chillingo's latest game Cut the Rope for introducing his fierce cuddliness to me. Om Nom the candy-eating monster is hungry and you need to feed him, but while you're at it you may as well collect the stars littering each level as well. The basic gameplay is that of a physi…

Safari Hammer - Platformer Review

Review Roy O Shea By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Safari Hammer - Platformer Review

Safari Hammer - Platformer by S_Zero Games is possibly an unfinished title. It's probably the only way to explain the mysterious lack of balance or gameplay features required to make this 'platformer' playable. The game's description describes its controls as being simplified to make the game fun and simple, however they're almost anything but simple or fun to use. While S_Zero Games should be applauded to attempting a new control scheme, managing to navigate, jump and attack units wi…


The Ball is Too Fast, The Game Is Too Slow, The Name Is Too Long Review

Review Level'D By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
The Ball is Too Fast, The Game Is Too Slow, The Name Is Too Long Review

'The Ball is Too Fast, The Game Is Too Slow, The Name Is Too Long'... yes, that's the name of the game. And yes, I'll admit I was caught by its stupidly long name and had to give the game a whirl. So, well played Level'D - your cunning plan is apparently working! In keeping with the 'Pong' themed week we've seemingly started through you'll pit yourself against AI opponents in a sort-of Pong / Arcanoid style of competitive game where you'll need to break through and score points agains…

Be2 - Escape from Pingland Review

Review Kismik By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Be2 - Escape from Pingland Review

Be2 is a pixel and he's sick of being battered back and forth like a ball on a court for the rest of his electronic life. In 'Be2 - Escape from Pongland' by Kismik, you'll need to manipulate the acceleration of this pixel to navigate him through dastardly mazes and games he was never intended to be in as he quests for freedom from the video game world. In order to get Be2 around these various environments you'll need to impart added momentum to his movement as he constantly glides or…

ZX Spectrum: Elite Collection Review

Review Elite Systems Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
ZX Spectrum: Elite Collection Review

The ZX Spectrum was 1982's major rival to that of the Commodore 64. Those of you who have seen my earlier reviews may know I was not in the ZX camp, but I hold no grudge against the beastly home computer and in fact the opportunity to play some classic titles on Elite System's latest release, 'ZX Spectrum: Elite Collection' was a fascinating insight in to the past. Much like similar console emulating titles, each of the games feature a unique control scheme that's adapted to fit in la…

All-in-1 Logic GameBox Review

Review AppZap By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
All-in-1 Logic GameBox Review

Balk if you must at the title, but All-in-1 Logic GameBox by AppZap is exactly what it says on the box - a collection of logic-style puzzles. A LOT of puzzles. And for some this may just be enough to make this cheap App a worthwhile investment, but for those after more than just an electronic puzzle-book there are really only two or three apps of of the currently seven available that go beyond the hum-drum basics. 'Liquid Measure' requires players to fill various sized containers by c…

Rogue Runner Review

Rogue Runner Review

Rogue Runner by Glowdot Production joins the fray with other runner titles like Monster Dash, giving players the ability to fire back at enemies while on the run, however instead of creatures of the night you'll be facing G-men and Aliens as you attempt to escape their high-tech facilities. Like any good runner the controls are kept simple and to a minimum, tapping the left side of the screen to jump, the right to shoot rapidly and tapping on flying enemies to send out homing missiles…

GravBot Review

Review Team Phobic By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
GravBot Review

In GravBot by Team Phobic, the story behind how an emoticon-displaying tv with wheels can manipulate its personal field of gravity and why he's collecting batteries is left up in the air. But honestly, who cares when you're having this much fun trying to help this cute balancing box to get his job done? As you'd expect from the title, your little robot can manipulate gravity to make his way around each of the game's maze-like structures, filled with lasers, deadly robots and traps rea…

BIT.TRIP BEAT Review

BIT.TRIP BEAT Review

If we consider Pong to be the equivalent of a popular child actor of its time - seen everywhere, but not quite fulfilling its potential - then BIT.TRIP BEAT is that child actor's attempt to reinvent itself during the heady early 90's period, full of synth beats and slatherings of neon to hide its aging concept. That may sound harsh, but BIT.TRIP BEAT by Namco is a hard title to enjoy despite its basic gaming roots of hitting pixels back with a paddle you can move up and down the scree…
