William Tale Review

Review Nebula Soft Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
William Tale Review

William Tale (not to be confused with the William Tell tale) is an archery style game from Nebula Soft where you'll find yourself shooting apples off a very patient friend (wait a moment); shooting apples out of a tree (Oh?); and defend your corn from pigs and birds invading your farm (see, definitely not William Tell!). Like so many archery-style games, the controls leave a lot to be desired and minor shifts in your finger resulting in an erroneous shot. Touching the screen initiates…

Jump O'Clock Review

Review Glu Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Jump O'Clock Review

Jump o'Clock by Glu is a steam-punk inspired endless vertical jumper that's simply stunning to watch and with several unlockable challenges it's not hard to keep busy with this little App. Climbing the clockwork tower is easy enough as touching the screen will springboard your robot companion (LE0) off his current surface towards a safe platform. The platforms themselves are a collection of randomly generated cogs, some with dangerous surfaces, however you can use the spinning momentu…

The Package Review

Review Rock Pocket AS By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
The Package Review

It has been a while since I've tried my hand at a serious physics puzzle app, so it was great to get my hands on Rock Pocket's latest release, The Package. Your objective is to ensure that a single box makes its way to a small platform on each level, but the added challenge of dealing with interference from mechanisms in the level and attempting to collect all the bonuses makes this a treat to enjoy. Each level can be explored by dragging your finger around the screen, while pinching…

Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 2 Review

Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 2 Review

Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 2 by Activision and developers Polarbit has improved on what was already a decent, if out-dated Mario Kart style racer, making it a great, fun arcade experience for your iPhone. Players have the option of choosing between tilt or virtual steering controls via the menu and both work fantastically, providing smooth control for each kart. Those after more finesse might prefer the virtual controls, but the tilt controls do make the game far more entertaining to…

Cubed Rally Racer Review

Review Jared Bailey By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Cubed Rally Racer Review

While this may be the second time I've invoked 'RC Pro-Am' in a single week, it's hard to escape the immediate comparison to this classic title and nocanwin's latest release Cubed Rally Racer. Players are put in control of a rally racer and will need to complete randomly generated sprints to unlock even more objects to be used in successive tracks. Control is kept simple and your rally racer can be turned left or right with the use of two large buttons, with acceleration handled by a…

Splinter Cell Conviction™ Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Splinter Cell Conviction™ Review

Gameloft have brought the latest game in the Splinter Cell saga 'Conviction' to the iPhone, giving gamers a chance to follow the story of super agent Sam Fisher in this intense action-stealth title. Conviction has brought the series back from a strong stealth-oriented system that makes Fisher more of a stealthy action hero than a deadly ninja. This has simplified the controls immensely, requiring only the analogue stick to automatically transition between fast and stealthy movement an…

Bio Army Review

Review DigiRabi By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Bio Army Review

Bio-monsters are invading, so it's time to crack out the troops to defend your base. Bio Army by DigiRabi forgoes being weighed down by a well crafted storyline and gets straight in to the action for this fairly standard tower defense title. Various military units acting as 'towers', buildings and traps can by dragged on to the game's fixed grid placements while upgrades are performed by selecting structures to bring up a detailed menu. Each level has various obstacles that prevent pl…

Love Love Review

Review Bambalam By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Love Love Review

With so many Apps coming out each day - some from major companies, most from independent groups - it's easy to miss some real gems. Love Love by Bambalam is a diamond that shouldn't be passed over if you love puzzle match titles. In a similar vein to Dr Mario inspired games, blocks enter the screen as paired groups using each of the primary colors (red, yellow and blue) or a gray 'broken heart'. Matches are made by joining 4 or more same colored blocks directly, however there's an add…

Bowmaster Review

Review iOccam By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Bowmaster Review

With so many bow-related games to choose from, it's nice to experience first-hand how to aim and fire a bow thanks to Bowmaster by iOccam. Putting aside the references to Robin Hood, your goal is to compete against various archers in a competition to score the most points in an artificially created shooting range. Aiming and firing is easy to achieve, using two fingers in the portrait orientation to aim and draw back your bow and arrow. Various mock-animals will make their way around…
